Picture of the Day: Happy to See You

Japanese koi at the Bank of China tower in Central

If you visit the Bank of China tower in Hong Kong, there is a giant shallow pool at the back filled with Japanese koi.

They range in size from a few inches to over a foot long, and all kinds of colours and colour combinations, like gold, black, orange and white.

However they seem quite lonely, swimming day in, day out in the pool.

On my way to the gym on Saturday I stopped and looked at the koi and they immediately came rushing towards me with mouths open, probably thinking it was feeding time.

So is their keeper the only one who gives them attention?

While I'm not asking you to feed the fish, if you pass by there, do say hello to them. They will be happy to see you.

  1. the japanese koi is an expensive commodity-only the rich chinese bank can afford to put them in the open for the public to enjoy. that is why the guards are so protective of them.
