On this page, we would like to introduce
ourselves to you so that you have an idea of the people
who are giving you all of the information
on this site. We will be asking for our cutomers
to take a picture with us and to write a
short paragraph about our services and the
other stuff. We want to let you know that
not only our tanks look good, and more importantly,
our customers' tanks also look good. For
now, let us introduce ourselves first.
Daniel Wai, The owner of Wai's Aquarium.
"I have been in this (aquarium) business
for over 18 years and I'm very happy to have
this web site set up to introduce myself
and my own business to all of you out there.
I've been thinking about setting up something
like this for a very long time. Too many
customers have come to me after they had
some real bad experience with the other stores.
I'm not trying to sell myself to you, but
the truth is that not all the sales people
(there) know what they are supposed to do
to maintain the tanks. I have specifically
told James to write the articles easy to
read and so that everyone understands what
It is true that there are many books out
there to educate people about chemcials,
filters, etc. But my advice is to use common
sense when you read these books. For example,
I always use the analogy of opening the windows
in your house to compare with doing water
change in your tank. Not doing enough water
change is like not opening your windows in
your house. The fishes are like us; they
need fresh air (water). Besides using your
common sense, I also stress that you need
to talk to more people, rather than just
reading the books. Learn from the others'
experience and share your own experience
with the others. In fact, a lot of my knowledge
comes from my customers' experience too.
If you have never been my store, you can
always come and ask all of your questions
and I' m very happy to answer them for you."
Later on, when the site is switched to the
www domain, I'll also expand this site to
an e-comm site to serve my many out-of-town
customers. Looking forward to it!"
James Mak, The Webmaster
"I'm the writer, the editor, the photographer,
and the designer of this web site. That is,
the one to blame if you see any spelling
errors, dead links, and marginal quality
photos. This web site is a very interesting
and more importantly, useful summer job that
I ever had before. I'm only an amateur in
web design and I would like to thank Daniel
for giving me a chance to try. This job is
going to make my resume look awesome. (I'm
going to finish the 4th year of my electrical
engineering and economics degree in U of
C this coming year.) It's very nice for me
to talk to all of the kind people I met in
the store. I was never into the saltwater
aqua. hobby before and so the readings was
quite painful for me initially. But as I've
been reading the books and talking to Daniel
about his experience, I begin to see
that it is indeed a very interesting hobby.
Thank you for all of you visiting this site
and see you sometime in the shop!"
Besides introducing ourselves, we would like
to invite any of our customers to write a
paragraph or two about what they think of
our services. A very good start will be something
like: How you get to know us in the beginning?
How do you find our services? Or simply whatever
you think is appropriate. To contact us,
you can either email Daniel, save your paragraph
on a disk and drop it in our shop, or simply
write it down on a piece of paper (and we
will type it up for you). As soon as we have
recieved your comment, it will soon be included
on this page.
