Dear All hi.gif


Iím not posting that often is because Iím kinda busy these days.Busy with what? One reason is yours truly,goldrush maybe volunteering at RG to hold our first inaugural goldfish show Ė and yes we are putting together our first goldfish show at Dawson place shopping mall which will coincide with the mid Autumn festival .Details of the show will be made known soon.So you can start to grow and groom your precious fish for the event Working with the committee is an exhausting process, I had forgotten about this kind of interaction, which Iím sure the experienced show organisers deal with annually or biannually.It is this area that we are found lacking†.† Itís great when it works well Ė and something unique and fantastic comes out of it Ė Iím sure a lot of time itís a bunch of compromises by people with different visions and aspirations.Preparations are meanwhile underway and I just hope that we can garner enough support to hold this event.
RG was established sometime in 2003 to serve the local goldfish community of its needs ,to increase awarenes and improve the keeping of our beloved pets.Through the years ,it has expanded to include international participations in our forum through internet feasibility.This year,for the first time,RG together in collaboration with Samgoldfish will host our very first inaugural topview goldfish show for all topview enthusiasts. In view of the lack of local topview competition,RG decides to host this show and wishes to seek your earnest support and participation in this .We have included in addition to topview ranchu,three other topview categories (dragon eye,tosakin and open) to improve and enhance participations.We are committed in our limited capacity to entertain,engage,educate and inspire the public as well as would be goldfish keepers through this show .So please give us your earnest support and spread the words around.Thank you

Some years back when the Chinese government opened their door to foreign investment,Westerners went by thousands to take the opportunity to market their goods and services.Suddenly there was a instant surge of investments,opportunities and prosperity in the Mainland.Exhibitions and shows became norm.Success was in every card that the chinese dare to even endorse every investment with "GUARANTEE NO FAILURE"endorsement .Well then came the bubble burst.....and many were left to leak their wounds.Many Westerners felt cheated and disgusted.So they went in thousands to refute the Chinese"GUARANTEE NO FAILURE"endorsement.The Chinese however defended their claim and left the Westerners dumbfounded.
This was their rebuttal

"You Westerner never read the fine print,we honour what we say ie GUARANTEE NO FAILURE but we read it right to left and not left to right!!!!!!!!!! hysterical.gif

Well this competition has no guarantee for success or failure but come this Tuesday,I'll be meeting two Chinese gentlemen for some precompetition discussion and luckily they ain't from Mainland China.Wish me luck rolleyes.gif

Thank you GoldRush for the picture and the street directory. Now I know which part of Singapore it is located.

Many well meaning members asked me,"Why did I take up this job?"

Perhaps I would answer the above with a strings of the late Michael Jackson's songs as a tribute for his ingenuity ,charisma and unconditional love for mankind.

Taking up this job is not as simple as ABC but in any case I'LL BE THERE for you.Well I know I
DON'T STOP TILL YOU GET ENOUGH of goldfish competitions.Just don't push me
OFF THE WALL because I'm ever ready to ROCK WITH YOU.It is just THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL at times that will let me down.Well I got my weakness and I just have to see the MAN IN THE MIRROR to reflect my flaws and shortcomings.But do not be taken in as I can be a SMOOTH CRIMINAL in disguise who can be very,very DANGEROUS ,one that dosen't differentiate whether it is BLACK OR WHITE.However most of the time I ain't BAD.I just wish and hope this compe is going be a THRILLER and will somehow become one that every subsequent competitions will strive to BEAT IT.Perhaps I'm dreaming but if we can come together and sing to the tune of WE ARE THE WORLD of goldfish hobbyists with a common goal and aspiration,we might just pull this one with great success and HEAL THE WORLD of our differences and opinions in our goldfish keeping.So please just don't say WE 'VE HAD ENOUGH.

Hi all

Before I reveal our agendas during our first meeting with the relevant committes,I would like to address Rafflesgold's stance in this event.RG being a forum and not a club has no rules or regulation where members must abide by its constituition.RG is purely running on a voluntary basis without prejudice or any obligation .We only serve as a media to facilitate and fulfil the execution of this upcoming show.We as a whole are depleted of any manpower means so the physical logistic are manned by a enthusiastic bunch of volunteers of whom most are not even RG members.Kudos to these people who volunteer their services under the umbrella of RG.I do not wish RG takes full credit for this unchartered enterprise as I feel indebted to these unsunk heroes that will run this show collectively.Having said that I would like to reiterate again that I can't possibly run this show alone and need volunteers and back ups to make this show a successful one.So if you have what it takes to help out please report to Sam our S4(logistic officer) for more details and duties.Thank you.

With that I would like show you what was discussed(I believe in transparency biggrin.gif )

Hope I'm able to attend the event with my kids, who's the judge for tvr? Inviting any Jap judge for this round? There is no SVR for this round?
Titus
Glad to see the event taking shape smile.gif

Just a thought, prehaps can allow the participants to put in an airstone at selected timings after the judging? Or maybe throw in an Oxy pill?

Your Spelling List

Wanting,
Longing
Held
Show
Warmth
Excitement
Wishing
Hoping
Lift
Embraces
Congratutory
Waiting..........


Each week when my son comes home with his spelling list,he seems to dread the idea of memorising those fruitful words,his teacher gives.I told him these words are going to be his building blocks to boundless expressions in his not so distant future.Well each week before his spelling I would glance through his list and craftily forms sentences out of those words ,creates a continuous story out of them and read out to him to enable him to grasp the beauty of each word and their usage.That way,his spelling can no longer be boring but becomes a rewarding lesson and not just another uninteresting chore.

Today,I'm going to be your spelling teacher!Yes these 12 words are given especially for those into topview goldfish keeping and their yearn to compete in a year devoid of any TV activities.


This year,topview competition is found wanting and I know TV keepers are longing for something to be held to show case their prized fish in a show.They need to feel the warmth of his fellow enthusiasts and relive the excitement of the past.Now they can go on wishing and hoping that a show will materialise to fulfil their needs.They yearn for the moment to lift,to leave or to live.That moment of warmth embraces and congratutory handshakes that will leave a lasting impression in any competitors.But for now it is a period of waiting.But their wait may soon be over.



Please spell out your words properly.I dont expect you to be spellbound by me but lets hope we can end this dry spell of tv activity with your participation without resorting to any magic spell cast!!!! wink.gif

Many sacrifices and inconveniences just to let you know
At last I unviel what the organisers have to say
This mid Autumm show is ON la and is on that very day......... biggrin.gif

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT


We need to make some deliberate changes to the classification of this competition.Due to insufficient entries in the junior tosai <8cm,we decided to scrap this class.Affected participants will be informed and arrangement will be made to refund the entry fees or they may opt to participate in the remaining classes available.

We have also decided to merge the Tosakin into Open category for a better representation of competition.

Our sincere apologies for any inconveniences caused

Despite the above,we received overwhelming responses of over 70 entries with 22 individual participants vying for the various prizes available.Thank you all for your continual support and encouragement.

See you all on this coming Saturday...... peace.gif

Doc,

When we both first started out participating in RG both of us are somewhat still net idiots. biggrin.gif

While you have improved by leaps and bounds in my opinion, such as creating your own videos, I still dont even know how to capture and upload videos on the net. longpia.gif

Well done.
goldrush

hi.gif kekeke when there is a will,there's a way


When I restarted my goldfish hobby to learn and relearn at RG,you had branded me a cheapo doc mad.gif (no offence though laugh.gif )then.Well it is through rearing these beginner's fish that moulded me to appreciate better quality fish and to participate in recent shows to fine tune my fish keeping and make me what I am today .

When I first posted my first video here,you chided me for being amateurish rusure.gif .So again,I tried to learn how to use the movie maker to its full potential,using appropriate special effects and accompanying music to enhance my video making for all to appreciate goldfish keeping in another dimension.

Tomorrow,after more than 5 years at RG,I'm embarking another milestone,in organising our first topview goldfish show for all topview starved enthusiasts here.Please wish me luck on this one prayhard.gif

Doc, time for you to change profession.
