Men & Hobbies.


I might sound so bias towards women when we discuss this topic. I've been thinking about writing this because I've observed the men in family; from my hubby, father, father-in-law, brothers,, brother-in-law and male cousins and I've noticed that they have their own hobbies that can make them spending a lot of time and also money on their hobbies.

I want to try to list down the hobbies that I normally see and heard from my family members and friends. If you can add on to the list, you are most welcome to.  

1. Playing computer games/PSP/ video games. 
    My hubby and my brothers are among those who are really crazy about playing computer games/psp/video games. Their excuse is simple; it's better for them to spend time playing the games rather than spending time and money to entertain themselves outside. Huh?

2. Fishing
    When we were in New Zealand, some of the our male friends invited my hubby to join in their fishing expedition as it could be quite exciting and rewarding. However, my hubby is so sensitive with the fish smell. So, he turned the offers nicely. Some of them still gave us some of their catch and I must say, this hobby can be a rewarding one provided that you have the passion and patience!

3. Playing futsal (street soccer)
   Actually one of my brothers is really into this sports. He was a very active athlete when he was in secondary school. He has had suffered some injuries but he never feels enough is enough. Right now he is just playing to be healthy and to avoid having a post-marital-tummy. (perut boroi.hehehe)

4. Shooting
    This is a special hobby for my father (my abah) since he was young. He owns a rifle and his targets are always the wild birds during the monsoon season. We were so used to helping him in plucking the birds' feathers before my late mum cooked the birds. I was not so crazy about eating the wild birds meat but the experience and the fun of plucking the feathers are among the special moments with my siblings.

5. Fishing during the monsoon season
    This is very seasonal since my brothers (there are 5 of them) always take the opportunity to go fishing at the end of the year when the water is filling up in the paddy fields behind our grandparents' house. I'm not the expect in naming the species but those little fish end up to be our lunch or dinner. The best way to cook them is by deep frying them.

6. Buying the latest electronic gadgets.
    This can be an expensive hobby since the latest hype is always expensive. Buying the gadgets just because other people have them is not helping either. My hubby and I don't always see eye to eye about this. For example, he loves to buy new digital camera and video camera even though now we already have 2 digital cameras, 3 video cameras! However, I have to thank him for buying this net book and subscribing the internet access that has enable me to continue my blogging hobby. hehehe

All right.........Now, it's your turn to share your opinion on this topic. What about the men in your family?

Nur, I totally agree with you. Men punya hobby can be really expensive. My father ada hobby beli kereta secondhand and kereta antik....biarpun dah habis duit dia melabur beli kereta...a few months later, dia akan tukar kereta lain pulak. Its really bad...:(
