Pulau Aman is the best place for fishing using fishing rods or fishing nets. Many fishing enthusiasts will rent a homestay with varandah facing the sea and start fishing, what a waste of time, I rather sleep!! Hehe..
Get fishing baits from picture 5.
This family from Bukit Mertajam, came here every weekend to Pulau Aman for family picnic and digging (korek) for clams (siput) called Siput Nangka.
Malaysian local goats saying Hello to Barney.. It is good to rear goats in this small island knowing that there is no harimau (tiger) around to kill the goats. Haha..Any visitors from oversea and childrens should be happy to see the local goats, they are so cute :-)
Declared by Mardi as the oldest Sukun Tree in Malaysia, planted by a Quran teacher in Pulau Aman. Earlier trip, I can't find this tree, and this time I found it, just the next road going to the children playground in Pulau Aman. Amazing, the tree still bears a lot of fruits. :-)
Small road with BIG Road Names, you can't find any car in Pulau Aman, strange for a small fishing village with so many road names. I am sure the villagers should be proud to say "Hey, that's my grandfather's road"
The most talkative person in the island
I hanged out at the Pulau Aman Jetty for a few minutes, taking more pictures of cos. Its amazing I can really feel the peaceful of the Island, no motorbikes, no cars but bicycles. The people are so friendly and most of them looking at you with a smile on their face and have a small talk with you asking where you are from and so on.
As you see the Pulau Aman Map, there's a Telaga Emas (Golden Well) along the island. According to the history, a villager around 1789, dugs a well and found a tempayan (large earthernware jar for storing water) that turned into golden tempayan. Then the British in Penang heard of the golden tempayan and came to dig and dig the well but they cant find any golden tempayan but a lot of golden coloured pebbles. I guess that why the beach are full of beautifuls pebbles..
The well is situated next to the beach, and yet the well's water taste very fresh and with a lot of large tadpoles inside the water, haha..I dont want to drink that water but used it to wash my hand and face for good luck.. and time for snacking...
Step foot in Pulau Aman, you can see a lot of Buah Sukun Trees greeting you.. What a lovely tree with large leaves and the fruit looks like a green cannonball.. Almost every kampung house have this tree.. On my way to Telaga Emas, there's an old Buah Sukun tree that was planted around 1890 by a Tok Guru Al-Quran - Tok Awang Bin Akid. Even though the Buah Sukun tree is almost 120years old but it still bear a lot of fruits.. Amazing tree..
Delicious for making fried fritters, crisps and cucur udang.. I think I will one day cook this Buah Sukun myself and post the recipes here..
There are about 245 populations of 40 families in Pulau Aman. Majority of them are Kaum Melayu, and most of them workes as fisherman and some of them have small industry of process belacan, dried fish and shrimps, Buah Sukun crisps and Homestay.
And I am there like a lost chinese girl in Pulau Aman..haha.. (Cina sesat)
