Yes, it is true that I ‘almost’ forgot about them. – The Grown Ups! My original fish family, adult clubs!
Today, I cleaned their tank because I pretty much abandoned them for a couple of weeks since the fry born and when I saw the water today, it was pretty disgusting! yuk!! You know, maybe sometime I can talk about their poops for a week because I really want to say something about it someday….. Enough about complains! Alright. So, they’re now back again in the clean water. And yeah maybe a little bit of love from the master!! Hehe..
Finally, the weather got cleared today so I decided to visit the Fish Market in Mongkok! I wanted to check out the fish store where I bought my Dwarf Platy. I’ll post about the fish market very soon but not now. (Still organizing the pictures!)
Anyway I visited the store. I actually didn’t really know that I should not take a picture there. So, when I tried to take some pictures of their awesome aquariums, the owner who has really dry and poker-face came to me and said something in Cantonese and I guess it was something like “NO Photo here.” So I told him that I was sorry. And that moment, I thought maybe this is a good chance to talk to him about that Dwarf Platy I can’t really buy anywhere except that store. Maybe he could tell me some good stories or maybe letting me to take some funny pictures in there??! My blogger instinct strongly came to me from fish heaven so I said to him,
“Hey, this is great! I have a fish blog!”
And he looked at me and said, “WHAT?” His face was saying something like.. ‘maybe I should get rid of this girl, she’s weird.’
So I said again, “I have a fish blog! and it would be great if you could tell me that fish’s real name because I’m writing about that fish in my fish blog and I’d like to confirm if I call it correctly.”
Okay, wait a sec. IF I was the owner, watching this short black hair weird girl came to me and showed her FISH BLOG on her iPhone and talking about the fish that I kind of created, I would be super flattered and really happy about it! Well, that’s the only thing I can think of. Many many positive thing! But surely, he doesn’t get this sense of “Marketing” and you know, managing his “Fans”. I don’t blame him but I thought at least he would be happy if someone like me show up and try to talk.
But you already guessed. He wasn’t really happy about me that asking questions. Maybe he was upset already because I tried to take pictures but hey, I couldn’t really get one! So he decided to just say something to ‘remove’ my present at the store very quickly. He said, “It is still a Mickey Mouse Platy. You changed DNA, just put ‘SP’ after the whole name.”
I am still appreciated that he was working busy and all and still tried to not ignore me. But that was a bit of disappointment.. I KNOW, and you KNOW that it is a Mickey Mouse Platy has been insulted their DNA by humans. I just hope that since his store did it to them, so they could tell me the fish’s name.. Annnnnnyway… I am a bit mad at them.
Bu it’s fine. He was probably really busy and I would be the first one that showed him a blog about fish… hahahaha.. It would have been more funny scene if you were there too or I wear my fish T-shirt. – Wait, maybe I can make it?! :p
Back to my point, so my grown ups are doing well. Nobody died (yet) and they eat a lot and swim a lot too. I didn’t buy any fish today even though I went to the fish market which never happened to me before! I guess it was really only for my blog after all.. ! (It was!)
