Koi (Chinese New Year)

koi

I must have taken hundreds of photos of kois in their ponds. I love the koi fishes for their gracefulness, colour and symbolic fengshui meaning. OK, I no longer believe in fengshui but still, it is nice to decorate our home with beautiful things. 🙂

As I don’t own a landed property anymore, rearing koi is out of the question. So, I entertained myself with visiting koi ponds, whether in the shop or at public parks.

Yesterday, I managed to snap some better looking photos from the Kuan Yin Temple in Air Itam. By far, this is the most successful photo, as far as I am concerned. However, I wish I can manage to get only 8 kois in a single photo. Hahaha, difficult mission.

A bigger size photo can be found from my Flickr site. Do take it and use it as your desktop. Koi fishes are supposed to bring good luck to the owner. May your year be filled with lots of happiness, good luck and good health!

    cockadoodle – Yeah, Kampung Malabar, I think. Not sure they still there or not ‘cos had not been there. The place has very nice fried rice at night. If you prefer a nicer ambience, you should try out Restaurant Kham Khee at Gottlieb Road, few doors away from Hotel Waterfall. They serves gu-bak steamboat.
