Bite Me

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

Nobita was telling us about the little booth with a pool where you dip your feet for a fish massage at Gi-ant. The girls lapped at her every word, especially when cousin Annissa and Imran were relating how brave they were that they dipped their feet too.

You see. 2-3 weeks ago, we were at Subang Parade and we stopped by the place and while MrGart had a go, all of Aliya, Asha, Adani and Ariz refused to dip any part of their body into the water, despite the fact that they could go free.

I had errr unremoved hair sticking out of my calves, so thank you very much! It was pricey too at RM34 per head.

So, when I heard that booth was offering at RM12 per head for 20 mins. Apa lagi!

The girls were excited. If Annissa could do it, we could too, I heard.

I went in first, put my feet in and the cute little fishes swarmed my feet. I was brave, mind you. But the image of little fishes with their mulut terjuih coming at me was a little too disconcerting. I dipped my feet and I lifted them up. Face contorted in a mixture of pleasure and intense "geli". Someone said that if you put your feet in and out, it'll attract the fishes more to your feet. Dang!

When my feet were dangling above the water, those fishes ogled at it in full anticipation of dinner and almost jumped to catch my foot. THAT was very scary! Not unlike the way Hans Isaac was looking at the Nescafe bottle in the ads in those tall billboards.

By this time, Aliya and Asha who were so gung-ho 30 minutes ago, went white. They hugged their legs and refused to dip nothing into no water.

I braved myself and stayed down for longer, grimacing all the way, letting out occasional hysterical laughters to the amusement of passers-by. Sungguh memalukan, actually!

But after a while, it got cosy and the hungry piranha-ish fishes turned cute again.

By this time, ALiya and Asha were debating between themselves. MrGart said he'd give it a go, again!


Conclusion. My feet didn't feel as smooth as a baby's bottom but they looked cleaner, alright. I hope the fishes were okay and not poisoned!
