Goldfish Market

Chinese people are into feng shui but I did not know the full extend of it until we got here - the Goldfish Market. I've never seen so many shops selling fishes along a street ever!

Ornamental fishes were known to bring good luck and wealth when properly positioned in the home. Just imagine having both sides of the street lined up with colourful fishes of different species and it was fully packed with people even on a rainy day.

It's a skill and takes time selecting fishes for the tank and this guy took his time in picking out his! Comparing one bag to the other... I guess you would too if your happiness and wealth depends on it! =)
