Fed on by fish and mosquitoes.

Been at my parents for almost a week. Been bitten by mossies for almost a week too. No one is getting bitten except me and I have no idea why.

Took Mom to visit her friend who is recuperating from breast cancer. To be honest, I was a little nervous, I didn’t know how I’d react to the sight of a sickly lady. But Aunty A has always been a tough cookie and she didn’t let the illness get in the way of her spunkiness. She’s exactly like her usual self, loud, bubbly and pleasantly obnoxious, albeit much thinner than before. I’m glad she’s recovering well and I hope the cancer will stay in remission.

After visiting my Mom’s friend, we left for some window shopping. We ate lunch at Ikea and then we strolled to Ikano where my eyes spotted some kind of aquariums on the ground floor. Turned out it’s one of those famous fish spa joints. Mom and I decided to give it a try.

Fish spa.
Oooh hungry!

At RM30 per 30 minutes, it seems pretty steep. Almost the price of a proper pedicure treatment. The moment I dunk my feet in, a school of fish surrounded my feet and started nibbling. Very ticklish, it took a while to get used to the sensation.

Fish attack.
For some reason, they only like to munch on my feet instead of mom’s.

Obviously, mom didn’t manage to maximise the 30 minutes cause the fish seemed only to be interested in my feet. One of the staff asked me whether I’ve been getting enough sleep as the fish apparently are attracted to people who are lacking of sleep. True, I’ve not been getting my snooze and going by the fish logic, it’s probably why the mossies at home are feeding off me too.

Me and Mom.
Me & Mom.

Will I go back again? The answer is No. As I was saying, RM30 is about the price of a proper pedicure and it’s certainly way more hygienic then dipping your feet into a tank of recycled water used by dozens of strangers before you. Smoother feet….maybe. But nothing beats having a scrub down by the good ol’ pumice stone.

Attended an event hosted by Happy yesterday evening. They were announcing the winners of Happy Moments. Grand prize was RM5000! Congratulations, winners. Will post more pictures if I got them, especially the ones of me and KY in compromising positions.

And here is a picture of me camwhoring in my new ‘Geek’ t-shirt at Northpoint’s “powder room” ahem.


Loving all these statement tees in WH (1 Utama). I’ve also gotten “I <3 Carbs" and "Relatively Famous". I hope they come out with more designs, just simple stuff with correct grammar, hehe.
