    Hey everyone,

    I'm in Malaysia at the moment getting induction for my new job position. In my apartment now after visiting one of their many pet shops. Wow, wow, wow.

    Let's just say I was extremely tempted to bring some plants back with me. All sorts for around R20 each. Tons of plants I had never heard of. They had these mini rotalla vietnam's which were beautiful although maybe we get those in SA - not sure.

    Screen in the shop playing Takashi Amano's videos along with about 15 CO2 injected planted tanks. The shrimp were also amazing, serious high quality ones, most expensive I saw was R50.

    The prices are also damn low, about half the price of buying from our LFS. They have it so good, that place put a smile on my face the entire time I was in there.

    Just thought i'd share. I snapped some pics but was told to put my phone away - no photos allowed. I'm going to go back before I leave Malaysia on Saturday so will try get some footage!

    Nice ... if you are in KL - the aquarium is worth a visit.

    And since you are that side of the pond a short hop down to Singapore is a must. BKK aquarium has also been good to me in the past.

    If you into rock climbing and that type of people - head off to Tonsai Krabi - you might bump into a few ZAFs that do inglisgh in asia.




    Man you made me look - THANKS ;-)

    Be safe ...

    Later Ferdie
