Hi Guys

i decided to share on basis, on how to build a pond.

For those who wants to build their own pond, the common thing that we all know,want is try reducing the cost.

Let's get started :

1. decide where to build the pond. when you have a place in mind, visualize what kind of pond do you want.
2. do some homework on how to do the labour work such as concrete, plaster, piping etc. I'm not going to go deep on this.
3. There are several tools you need to have such as grinder, concrete/mortar tools from time to time, i spend around 2-3 hundreds on tools.( become handy for other projects)
4. Once you got the general idea, draw an outline of your pond on what to do, what needed etc.

I,ll go phase by phase, together with the tools and things needed.

5. start digging. it's better to dig bigger than actual size because you can have a space to work.(you never know what buried under it, mainhole,piping,hard rock etc).
6. After you got the space, the first thing to do is to make a base and wall(don't make it high at first. Please refer my post.

to be continue......

My Koi jump off the Pond

Hi Guys

Has this incident happened to anyone of you guys? it happened few months back. So I realized I might share with you.
I read lots of articles and ebook on how to keep minimum water surface fro the edge of the least 6 inches. Mine is more than 12 inches BUT she still can jump off the pond. I think this is a rare case. Luckily, at that time I still awake, heard a knocking sound, 5 minutes later I came out, and saw her bleeding,with her mouth searching for someone to give her CPR.huhuhuhu!

For those who wish to build one, this factor matters.

Beijing Trip

Hi guys

Off Topic.

My 5 days trip to Beijing was not as happy as i thought. The food was too salty, oily and worst to come their toilet was horrible. I'm not sure about the air quality, it was foggy, not sure from vehicles or from the sand storm.

I get the chance to visit Great Wall, Summer palace etc. Took nearly 1000 photos!It was breathtaking to see with your own eyes on of world's 7 wonder. If you like to see historical, beautiful scenery..then this is the place!

If you plan to visit China on a package, be prepare to visit at least 5 Government shops like pearl, silk, medicine factory etc..That sucks!

Last day, we went shopping at silk market. The price was totally outrages,I can't tell you how stupid the price was. Just imagine, I bought a Jeep Jacket where the original price was 2400 yuen!(RM1200). How much you want to bargain??? If you ask for 400yuen(RM200)then you are totally been "slaughtered"! bad experience when shopping there!

In my opinion, Shanghai is much better than Beijing. Only the weather, last time I went, it was -1 degree!!!

Star rating on Beijing : 3/10

Some photos to share.

Bird Nest Stadium - A stand storm appeared after the photo shot, so we didn't enter the stadium.

Summer palace - The emperor was a.&%*^.i can't explain it...all the places visited was all humongous!(what for?, maybe to show power)
