Aquatic Avenue Review

Aquatic Avenue Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AquaticAvenue/

I have been there personally once. Had a good impression as they had exotic fish not commonly found elsewhere. (For example, Gertrude Rainbowfish (Pseudomugil gertrudae), Celestial Pearl Danio, etc.) They are also specialized in shrimp and plants. It was my first time seeing the Gertrude Rainbowfish, and I was absolutely fascinated.

The guy (not sure of his name) there was clearly knowledgeable about fish (much more knowledgeable than me). Taught me a bit about how to keep Celestial Pearl Danio. The owner was friendly, and can see that he is passionate about the fish and aquarium hobby.

Also, ordered plants online from them. Their plants are of good quality, and labelled correctly. For example, my Ludwigia Super Red was bought from them. It was grown submersed (underwater), and was of good quality (had roots, leaves are bright red color).

For comparison, many other aquarium shops in Singapore don’t label their plants, as well as sell non-aquatic plants. (I as a beginner was “scammed” twice, once with Malayan Aqua Fern, and another time with Alternanthera Sessilis.) Had they been labeled, a simple Google check would suffice to know that they are non-aquatic.

Currently, they do have a free delivery promotion (no minimum purchase), so do check them out on their Facebook or online store.

Overall, I would say that they are more of a premium aquarium store, they have great quality and range of rare exotic fish and plants.

There is one negative review of them in a blog online (dated 2014), that was certainly not my experience in 2019. In 2019/2020, my review of Aquatic Avenue is definitely positive.

Overall Review of Aquatic Avenue:
Very Good!

  • Exotic and rare fish
  • Exotic and rare plants (properly labeled and grown)
  • Quality fish and plants
  • Premium high-end aquarium shop, prices are still affordable
  • Friendly and knowledgeable staff

If you decide to visit them (after the virus situation stabilizes), do check out the nearby Redhill coffeeshop as well. There are many vintage hawker food there which are of good quality, and at very affordable prices.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review

I find the plot quite disappointing. While the CGI graphics are good, and the acting is decent, the storyline is what I find lacking. Ever since George Lucas sold the Star Wars franchise to Disney, I find that the essence of Star Wars has changed.

Not just The Last Jedi, the previous Force Awakens plot was formulaic. There seems to be a fixed pattern to it:

  1. Some pilots must try to sneak in to disable/destroy the large enemy ship, be it the Death Star or the “Dreadnaught”.
  2. Go to a new planet with some fancy new animals/lifeforms
  3. The battle between the Sith and the Jedi. (This was lacking in the Last Jedi though. There were close to zero lightsaber battles.)

There are some loopholes that don’t fit the style of the previous Star Wars movies. Rey defeating Kylo Ren without any prior training, and Luke Skywalker doing some kind of “Astral Projection”. As a fan who have watched all prior Star Wars movies, the style and plot of the new movies (post-Disney) are strikingly different in a bad way. In fact, it is so bad that I don’t think I will watch any Star Wars movies in movie theatres anymore.
