以魚會友 - making friends through the fish hobby

Complacency invites calamity; Humility reaps its harvest.
~ a Chinese proverb

年來﹐飼養金魚的嗜好讓我有機會結交了許多不同國籍與不同背景的魚友。近期﹐我又有幸認識了一位北京的魚友黃先生(天山雪)﹐他就是聞名中外:中國蘭壽網的版主。 金魚象征友誼與和平 -蘭壽網恰當的運用網絡科技﹐讓中國國內與世界眾多魚友聚集﹐增進友誼與信息交流 ﹐弘揚金魚文化。


我非常榮幸蘭壽網眾多網友對小作的青睞。中國是金魚的發源地﹐中國魚友的讚揚﹐對我而言更深意義! 在此﹐感謝世界各地的朋友對我的鼓勵與支持, 希望大家也喜歡我的博客。

hrough the years in the goldfish hobby, I get to know many friends from different countries and background. Recently, I was very happy to link up with a new friend from Beijing, who owns one of the most popular goldfish forums from China – LANSHOU.NET.

If you are not versed in Chinese, you can make use of GOOGLE’s translation engine to decipher the contents. The translation is not perfect, but it is definitely better than none. Anyway, goldfish hobbyists will be overwhelmed by the many beautiful goldfish pictures even without understanding the text. There are awesome amount of links and information in this forum covering all aspects of the goldfish hobby. The well managed LANSHOU.NET is one fine example of how internet technology is successfully used to foster friendship and global information exchange to promote the spirit of goldfish culture.

LANSHOU.NET is also one of my important resources on the new developments of goldfish varieties and features. Like any craft, the goldfish hobby is a never ending learning process requiring continual efforts to upgrade and improve. The new varieties and features of goldfish produced by China's skillful breeders provide much inspiration and new dimensions to my work.

I am very honoured that my humble artworks have received much popularity in LANSHOU.NET. The positive testaments from the motherland of the goldfish means a lot to me. I would also like to thank my friends from all over the world who had lent me their valuable support and encouragement all these years.

Check out my artwork in the following websites:
