Greetings from Borneo!


Hi everyone,

I joined the forums some years ago but have been inactive due to work related travels. Been lurking and decided to come out and say hello again.

I own a little shop in Borneo that specializes on planted aquariums, exotic fishes and plants of Borneo though I started as a hobbyist many years ago. I enjoy the outdoor and photography.

Warm wishes and peace!

Welcome Bullosa,

It's fantastic having members from all over the world. I see your profile says Malaysia. I'm from Macau and the Portuguese there cook many dishes based on Malaysian dishes and boy are they GOOD. Most use that smelly fermented shrimp paste.

Hi Tenor1,

It's cool to know you are from Macau. We were former colony of the Portugese, Dutch and English. Lot's of Eurpoean influence here and lot's of different cuisines here.

Thanks Dogfish for the warm welcome. Here are a couple photos.

Lovely shop. You're in the heart of crypt and Bucephalandra land! Show some pics my friend.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I'll try to post photos more often. You can also see more photos at my Blog. There is a thread that I posted a while back in ESEE/Jungletraining forum about my trip into Kalimantan in search of Cryptocoryne, Bucephalandra and fishes. You can see some photos here http://www.jungletraining.com/forums...ead.php?t=7419

Cheers!

Is that a Monstera adasonii in the bottom tank in the middle row? A monstera for sure. Do you cultivate central american plants as well as SEA? By the way, I love your shop as well.

Yes Klaus, you are spot on. I do grow some South/Central American plants to keep the hobby interesting.

@Jimko, if you are on this side of the pond, so drop over for a cuppa.

Nick,

Its really too bad that I took a spill at along a river bank somewhere on a descent in Sekadau. My left arm dislocated at the elbow and took me 6 months to recover. I hope it will regain full strength soon as I head out for another unknown location in West Kalimantan next week. The monsoon just stopped and it's time to go out and play.

Cheers!
