Malaysia Open Wakagoi Championship 2006
Sentul Park Koi Centre have news of a brand new Malaysian koi show that they are hosting as part of "Japan cultural week" there in Kuala Lumpur. The show will be the 1st Malaysia Open Wakagoi Championship and will be held on Sept. 23-24 2006 at Sentul Park West. It's open to all koi hobbyists and according to the Malaysia koi forum, entries have been received from Japan, UK, Singapore, Australia, Thailand & Brunei. It looks set to be a very promising show especially as 10 renowned Japanese breeders are expected to be judging the event and bringing some of their early harvested koi to be auctioned for charity.
It sounds like an exciting and interesting week is planned starting on the 16th Sept with a "Bon Odori", a popular Japanese dance festival in mid-summer. The rest of the week will be filled with events and activities including a carnival day with Japanese food, tea ceremony, drum performance, games and lots of stalls. The finale will be the koi show so it looks well worth a visit if your local, or maybe plan a trip to take in the whole week as part of a holiday.
