My long awaited visiting

Sorry to everyone.. It has been a long time since I have updated my blog..

Reason being that I have went visiting some Taiwanese breeders in Taiwan.. It was really an eye opener to me and also a great exchange of views on shrimps markets and also experiences of different set up's pro and cons..

Really happy that all these breeders have treated me as a confidante and shared all their experiences with me.. I have learnt much more then what I have in my previous trip..

First breeder which I have met upon arrival is: Vin Fish, a buddy to me before and after this trip. I had a chance to see his wonderful shrimp room (or shrimp apartment to be exact, hahaha)..



This is actually just a portion of it.. He has another room which I didn't take any photo of..

Spent almost 5hrs with an hour of lunch in between.. Haha.. His set up is amazing and simplicity is his aim of set up..

Here are some photos of his shrimps too show.. He has too many to take, so I only took these with my iPhone..



Some of the shrimps which I have 'secretly' net out for photoshoot.. Hahaha.. But of cause Vin is beside me when I am doing this..



This piece has very nice legs and features.. Loving it..


The next day, Vin and me with another friend actually had a great night sitting at Taiwan's famous night market, having some snacks and couple of bottles of beer.. Even though he has to work the next day, we chatted till the wee morning of 3am! Haha

(Some weird vegetable, deep fried fish eggs and stir fried snail meat)


Our trophies for the night..


Thank you so much to Vin 'buddy' for his warm hospitality and also for all that we have shared and talked about.. I will be visiting you soon again as said..

I shall have more write ups from other breeders in time to come when I am free.. Stay tuned..

It is indeed a very good experience and exposure for me.. and I hope that I am able to share some to the people who have been following my blog....

Well, just give me an email or call when you are coming... I will see if I can arrange to meet you up and bring you around, but I cannot confirm as I have to see my work schedule as well.. Maybe can meet up for dinner or a few round of drinks as well.. hehe...
