This comical music video which i have created IPB Image brings out the BENG and SENG of goldrush which may seem atypical and uncharacteristic for your liking.I have used familiar dialect songs to appease the heartlanders'taste with the MFGC compe as the main subject of interest.Interestingly,I find great challenge in coordinating and choreographing this short video clip,a feat that needs precised and articulated execution in the making.








Enjoy peace.gif

This is my 7th video instalment of MFGC 2010.Hope you will enjoy it biggrin.gif


goldrush
Hey today is TAX PAYERS' DAY.If you are submitting by form, today is the last day for your submission biggrin.gif

Ok for those not so tech savy,you can get the entry forms from the following LFS.




Forms are only available at Qian Hu and Fishcity as from this Saturday.... hi.gif
goldrush
Forms are also available at CLEMENTI FLORIST AND AQUARIUM



IPB Image
goldrush
hi.gif

Please refer to your entry forms which spells

MAX 2 ENTRIES PER CLASS

I have checked with the organiser and

that it should read MAX 2 ENTRIES PER CLASS PER CATEGORY which translates to mean that you can submit a max of up tp 4 fishes (2 Cat A and 2 Cat B) instead of just 2 fishes per class(either 2 Cat A or 2 Cat B or combination of 1 Cat A and 1 Cat B only)


Sorry for any misunderstanding and misinterpretation caused blush.gif
goldrush
Before it becomes MAYDAY
There is a LAST DAY
Yes it is the final day to make your submission
Or comes 27th you will be denied admission
Bear in mind there are only 240 tanks to fill
Denied entries and you got to swallow that bitter pill. biggrin.gif

One of the marks of a great competition is in its participation.Your participation and contributions help the show achieve its reputable standing and further its vision and aspiration.With ever increasing participation from local fraternity as well as abroad,it becomes an increasing challenge to foster a common sense of pride and identity coming from a very diverse goldfish community.Few shows live up to that vision and only a handful have the honour to come close in achieving it.I believe MFGC 2010 is one of them and this year MFGC will be placing a stronger emphasis on the number of entries of each class and category to facilitate a better and more comprehensive representation for the betterment of any goldfish show..So mark your calender on the 27th May and together with your passion and commitment,we can make this show scale even greater heights.

With changing trends and influx of recent imports,short tailed oranda (yuan bao,oranchu) will make its maiden debut at this year MFGC 2010 as a new class itself.Previously it has to compete in the open class. good_very.gif


So you get to see something like this shiok.gif

It's not that simple.
You Compete what you groom.
If you groom well,
It will compete well.
It's not just about who's lucky,
It's also about who's more prepared.



IPB Image





It's that time of year again. And barely 3 weeks to go.Time to tighten up your grips, put to test what you have acquired at first half and now 's the time to show what you can offer with the second half.
Stick to your beliefs and practices and get ready to shine! I know...... some of your best fish will never get to compete.They either perish or deteriorate as the days of competition draw near.That's to be expected.I'm not immune to the perils of Murphy's Law as well but you got to overcome your fears and come out victors in this domestic battle within.Somehow your fish sense your anxiety and the stress you exude somehow get transferred to them and the inevitable usually occur............much to your disappointment of course.
It is crucial you are mentally focused just prior to competition. Too many times fear, stress, and pressure, shake up your confidence right before your fish even grace the compettion tank. Your goal is to get yourself into your Ideal Vision State and tell your fish likewise and go enjoy the show together. That is, you feel confident, focused, excited, and ready to go............ rolleyes.gif

On the day of the meet, know you have prepared as much as you can and go into the show with an air of confidence and excitement. You've worked hard, now is the time to let it shine. Good luck, and most importantly, have fun. biggrin.gif


goldrush
Exactly 3 weeks to go and it's time to look at the days ahead. You might still be struggling with finishing a showpiece for the compe, or you might be almost to the end of your grooming already. If you're in the latter position, I want to give you a big pat on the back. If you're in the former, don't worry, because that's pretty much where I am too.
Well I'm no good at pep talk as it can often serves as a double edged sword biggrin.gif Such talk may help some competitors to reach an optimal level of arousal, but can cause others to become over-aroused and anxious, leading to a poor performance.
Well looks like I'm the lone voice at RG left but I just got to put down in words to convey my thoughts.In 3 weeks,i will be sending my largest contingent ever in any local goldfish shows and i'm ready to play fish and not kill them! blush.gif

hi.gif Hi Doc,

Do you know why this short-tailed oranda has to compete in the open class? Was there no Oranda class? In my opinion, this fish is still an oranda (no matter how long/short its tail is) and has to compete in Oranda class. If needed, the organiser can make a sub-class under Oranda class, called Short-tailed Oranda class (or Butterfly-tailed Oranda class, if any) to differentiate it with the standard long-tailed orandas.

Just like ranchu, there are Black Ranchu class, Metallic Ranchu class, etc. but all still under same category: Ranchu.

Tks n rgds,
William

Hi william

In previous MFGC 2008 competition,short tailed oranda was unheard of.In 2009 Aquarama and Fish hub compe,most competed the short tailed oranda under the open category rather then going against the conventional oranda class.I guess riding on its novelty and recent introduction the organiser has created a special class to cater for its enthusiasts.You are very right in classifying them as oranda.But with the split in classifying them into short tailed and long tailed variety,we have an extra challenger with a class of its own.


doc
KokiBali
Thanks for your explanation, Doc.

There are new varieties in the market nowadays, like dragon eyes pearlscales, butterfly tailed oranda/ryukin, etc. It is confusing how to classify them.

For me, they are still pearlscales, oranda and ryukin ;-)

REVIEWING RATING: *****
goldrush
The countdown begins.

It doesn't get bigger than this.The 2010 MFGC!Be prepared for a competitive field featuring the very best in our local goldfish fraternity fighting tooth and nail for many coveted prizes.The build up has been enormous and each passing day adds more than just anticipation and uncertainty.Will the traditional BIG FOUR(Oranda,Ryukin,Ranchu or Dragon eye) triumph and rule the tanks again or will there be a fairy tale debut for other breeds to take the throne?You bet!
So head down to IMM in about 10 days time to capture the awe and experience that GOLD piscine feel.
And if you can't make it to IMM,fret not as Rafflesgold will be there to cover the event throughout and I got a feeling we may bring back LIVE SCORE to perk up the suspense!No promises but this compe is certainly set to be a classic.
goldrush
8 DAYS TO GO

THIS IS WHAT I CAN PRODUCE biggrin.gif

goldrush
To all avid readers maybe you like to grab the latest copy of this "RG magazine" for the latest write-up and build up towards MFGC laugh.gif

IPB Image
goldrush
Most will be glad if one gets to next Wednesday without suffering any further setbacks to our preparations for MFGC at IMM.At the same time most of us will be keeping our fingers crossed that none of our fishes suffer some kind of injury that can leave them out for this prestigious event. We don't want at this moment to lose some of our star players which are often irreplacable and totally indispensable.With the clock ticking away , tension can mount to unprecedented level which can leave both fish and owners exhausted and spent.So relax and look forward to the event with optimism rather than with do or die attitude.It is not the end of the world but maybe the beginning of the end,so please enjoy......... yes.gif

kekeke this one organisers will not know.I think each sponsors of the event are to release a certain number of goldfishes to the tank and at the end of it the number of them release are written and submitted to the organiser which will consolidate the total.Come on down and have fun.Maybe on Sat,you can represent RG(if Ken is absent) to receive a commemorative plaque biggrin.gif


ps if some of fish dies within,I am not too sure whether the total still holds hysterical.gif
CP
Kekeke......in RG we emphasize so much on quarantine yet in a big show simply mix fish from sponsors as part of game. biggrin.gif

Me do nothing and go receive plague ?? Paiseh man ! blush.gif

That said, your efforts in organising and promoting the show desrves praise. beg2.gif Wish you all the best in your participations and I am sure you will return with a bunch of trophies won fairly and squarely; and deservingly. happydance1.gif

TRAGIC NEWS OF THE DAY


There are over 400 videos I have produced under my youtube account,and this is one of the hardest to direct,to produce and to upload.It is a painful way to share something you have just lost.In producing it,you tend to experience all kinds of emotion from shock,anger and guilt.Such feeling can be overwhelming and enpowering.Grief that is expressed and experienced has a potential for healing that ultimately can strengthen and enrich yourself.So I decided to produce this vidz to share with all my grief.The MFGC may have taken the toll out of my competition fishes and like I said earlier I'm not immune to the perils and wrath of the dreaded Murphy's law.
