  Red Arowana
by l_joo

The story has to start from about 30 years ago. This Arowana fish worth not more than RM50.00 each but today it's price is about a car, why?

The local Malaysian-Chinese believe this Red Arowana will bring good luck and fortune for the owner. The cost of this fish can rise to RM2,000 to RM20,000 in Kuala Lumpur and they even have serial numbers injected in their body.

Some enthusiasts said if you look carefully and concetrate hard, one day you will see the 4-digits appeared on the body of the fish which means you can rush to any 4-digits outlet to invest for your bright future. This is definitely part of our local Malaysian-Chinese custom tips.
