What a great 4 days we had during the recent Fisheries Carnival 2009. This year marks the the 7th year for the annual event that was set up and co-ordinated by the Fisheries Department of Brunei Darussalam.
The sole purpose of the event is to showcase and promote local businesses and products. 16,000 people came to support the 4 days event regardless of the situation that had engulfed most of Brunei's households, that had caused damage to properties due to flash floods, caused by heavy and continued rainfall in the state.
Every year our company participated in the event in hopes that the public will support our product ( we rear and sell Mexican Blue Shrimps ) which, to this day is mainly focused for local consumption through the local middlemen. This year my wife 'turun padang' to sell off the shrimps, and she gave a 2 days sample tasting of our shrimps which everybody loved. Although we were really tired from selling 4 days straight but, I just have to say that it was the best 4 days of 2009 for me :P and to my surprise and relief the amount of support given was better than I had expected.
So I would like to sincerely thank the people who were involved..you know who you are hehehe and WE WILL DEFINITELY SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!!! :p
