Update on our new start up farm

its been awhile since i update progress on my udang galah business ventures...for a month now i have tried to secure a land in Negeri Sembilan for my mid term goal and its was tiring but INTERESTING...the deal is advancing as plan and hopefully i will secure the land before August....start-up capital partly from my savings and most of it from bank loan...

i am very grateful to God...the land got great water source, a bit far but still have a good access (potholes also got lah) no electricity but very near to last TNB pole...10 minutes to highway and 20 minutes to the nearest town...last 2 weeks i was at the land doing some clearing of scrubs and making good of the access....

what more to say, we will be having 8 of 50m x 50m freshwater prawn ponds, and hopefully we will first harvest lots of big fat prawn/shrimp by early next year....wish me luck

3. electricity
4. access road
5. type of soil
6. surroundings community
