    I found this young girl at a koi dealer recently, trying to buy a bad ass looking Kohaku, as a present for her dad. I asked her name but she said a name that I wasn't sure or I don't know why she was agreeing with me........... I asked, 'What's your name?' She said, 'Ya Ya.......'
    I asked again, the same Ya Ya........ I said, don't make fun of me kid? Why are you agreeing in Malay.......on my question!
    She looked at me with a puzzled face! I just left her.........and wonder whose kid that cute girl belong tuuuu? :-? :-? :-?

    Practicing my Photoshop skills la.........I have started the first lesson already. Just waiting for the father to respond only........ Anyone recognise the background? That was the post that she did when I took her photo and I thought it was a unique post. Both parents were present........

    The above story was just cooked up to entice the father to come out of hiding.........

    Bro Izrul,
    The first love for Japanese kois was when I was in the primary school. Then, I set an objective to built a pond one day.........and my dream came through. I was into Discus at one point of my hobby. I also was into Arowana before but I guess nothing beats keeping Nishikigoi........This is the ultimate.

    Ya forgot i keep discus last year,having bout 10pcs in 4 feet aquarium.eventually,all died in one messy water change..temp didnt reach the heated needed by discus,too much chlorine in tap water and blackwater didnt help.tried to rectify things but the chlorine had entered their gills so one by one became sick,color faded and floated the next day.
    From what i see,kois is more challengging so need to buckle up properly before tosai day 1.

    Bro Nivek,
    Either you are on the way, or have already achieved the 'PARTNERS IN CRIME' status......
    Congratulation Bro!.......... :-D

    As for me, I have the VETO power in my hands........I can decide on what ever I want with regards to the pond or the purchase of the kois....... My HM cares less about my kois or my pond.......so I am only at stage one! Always, tell her that I bought those kois at RM100 each (i.e. I have discounted 95% of the price).......else I will die standing.... :-)) :-)) :-D

    Bro Adik,
    Sure thing! There are many photos that I have taken and surely can upload the photos either in fb or in the Forum (under a proper Discussion Title). Sure bring back memories. I still remember you belanja me makan at the East Plaza Building at Scot's Road near Hyatt Hotel. A good meal of Yong Tow Foo.

    Yaya has surely ground up........inquisitive as ever I imagine?

    And Bro Harry, I am just learning Photoshop (a newbie) and you are right the first edit photo was my Kujaku........ In Yaya's photo, I tried the technique of color and black and white background.........

    Sifu Shukri,

    May I suggest for post processing probably you can use Adobe Lightroom 4 as its much2 easier than using photoshop....its much more user friendly that comes with preset button for easier adjustment & control....u can download the presets that u like for free from the net...usually newbie like me use lightroom as 1st step before going to photoshop as final process...just my 2 cents yg x laku :)

    ya, great memories bang only yours a bit short hehehe
    u ate nasi ayam, tahu sumbat & taugeh goreng that day la bang :-D
    i'm still yet to get a chance to makan kakak's famous chicken curry, hope to get a chance this near future

    Abang Harry :)
    speaking of the topic, Mason actually encounter accidental spawning of chagois, the offspings are quite gd. Mason gave most to the guy who handles the pond maintenance who actually sells kois, sold the better ones at rm300-500 :-D
    the accidental breeder of the year is Abang Paul (PH8), his was not kois but plecos!! :-D
