Welcome to Amy's Ketapang Inc!
We are not a big operation. We were dealing mainly with Indian Almond (Catappa) Leaves. My dad and I were the main partners. He picked the leaves and washed them, while I sort and send them out. My mum and children helped out whenever they could. My husband acts as technical adviser and helps when he can.
Apart from providing a service to the many hobbyist friends we have made, the main reason we have sustained this store is to provide my retired parents with a source of income while keeping them healthy. I was working on the leaves almost 6 days a week, in whatever free time I have when I am not teaching my children or cooking etc.
Sadly, however, my dad's health has deteriorated significantly so that at least for the moment he is not able to help collect any more leaves. I will continue to put up whatever quality leaves I can get my hands on, but I am afraid we will not be able to supply the many different grades as we used to do.
We do have some very nice driftwood and other natural products. Postage for driftwood is quite high, but they are such unique creations of God and will give a lovely natural touch to every aquarium! We have as such priced the pieces as competitively as possible base on exquisiteness and effort needed for preparation and packing.
Thank you very much for your confidence and overwhelming support.
Warmest Greetings from Singapore,
~Amy & family
