KOI VILLAGE: You’ll keep ‘koi-ming’ back!

Finally! I had the chance to go to “Koi-Village – the pet mall,” in Magallanes, which Benz and I have planned for quite sometime. It’s not in our itinerary that day but it was on the way home so we dropped by. It was an unplanned visit which made us plan for another, this time with her kid, Kite.

Here is a video I made of these beautiful creatures of the water they call “koi’s.” I wish you’ll enjoy it as I did making it:

The Koi Village, although described as a pet mall, exclusively sells “koi’s,” the price tag of one koi ranges from 200 Hundred Pesos to as much as 250 Thousand Pesos, the latter having lived for almost ten years now, I was informed. There are about three big ponds inside (measuring about 30-square meters) and each pond is divided by fishnets to segregate one class from the other. There are other small ponds on one side for “fingerlings.” You are free to go around the ponds through wooden ramps.

The whole place is clean and very safe because the ponds have fishnet fences which takes away your worries about your kids going around while doing your own thing. Do not forget to experience feeding the koi’s at only 20-Pesos a bottle of pelletes. There’s also a small garden at the back of the mart which is equally relaxing as the “koi’s” themselves. Parking is not a problem. Koi Village has it’s own parking area and just in case it’s full, a pay-parking area is immediately beside it. They are open DAILY from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. I am uploading here a map for easy reference:

Advanced Hobbyist Genetic Breeding Station Inc., operates the Koi Village. What is good is that they do not only sell but also offer services and assistance to those who would like to start with their own collection, from the simplest “koi care” to the most complicated “import/export of koi’s.”

  11. kumpare mo says:

    Koya, mali yung punchline mo kay Jonjon. Yung sa radyo, hindi “flashback’ ang sinasabi.

    It’s suppose to be: “Hitback…hitback…hitback…back…back…”

  12. Constantine says:

    Sistah: I think they are called koi’s? Not sure, haha! They are edible but I would not eat one for a thousand, I’d rather go for ’tilapia!’ 🙂

    Jonjon: Yan ba ‘yung “flashback…flashback…flashback…back…back…?” Superb pala ha, spell “superb!” Thx! 🙂

  13. hey …i like the music..it brings back memories of listening to DZMB..LOVE radio..wow..and the video is superb as well..
