Brunei's First Koi Show
Brunei's first ever Japanese koi show called The Living Jewel Show 2006 will be on the 1st October. It will be held at Sykt Biotropical Fish Shop in Kg Bunut and is due to start early at 8am and close at 4pm. Entry is free of charge and they are hoping for some of the best koi in Brunei to compete.
According to Mr Ricky of Sykt Biotropical Fish Shop and joint organiser, not many people in Brunei raise koi because they are very expensive, but due to his customers requests they thought it would be fun and a great way to share their hobby. From what I've found they may be small in numbers but Brunei koi fans make up for it with enthusiam and when looking around at the koi forums they have a healthy sized community and a hunger for knowledge. Judging by some of the photos their koi don't lack the quality which look excellent, but they don't have the same level of support and dealer network that some countries enjoy. I'm sure this is set to change with companies such as AEC Engineering, Gardenia, Jaya Hypermart and Izeki koi foods joining Sykt Biotropical Fish Shop in a growing list of sponsors.
Goodluck to everyone involved and hopefully someone will post some pictures.
