In the Club

I have just completed initiation into the spurious You're Officially Living in Asia Club. Requisites include but not limited to:

1. Token Food Traveler. Transporting food or food related items across international borders, no holds barred; I schlepped four packages of cajun sausage from Thailand to Malaysia. And though I have yet to watch my personal styrofoam ice chest circumnavigate a luggage carousel, a few more months should be all I need to conquer that milestone.


2. Flakey Fish Spa Patron. It all starts when you voluntarily forgo a conventional pedicure for something that offers more, shall we say, suction power.


Done and done, I'm in like Flynn.

Eeek! I don't think I'd be able to go it, I'm so ticklish! That, plus, you know... the idea of fish sucking my feet is kinda weird.

Frau said...

OMG I would die too creepy feeling!

Karen said...

Your expression is hysterical! It definitely is creepy when you think about it. How was it?

roysie said...

I have always wanted to do that!!

That photo of you pretty much sums up the feeling I had when I realized that you were going to put your feet into the water with those fish. Way to be brave!

Mrs. Blandings said...

Is it tickly? I felt just like you looked in that image.

OMG I did that fish spa in KL this summer! We paid for 30 minutes and it took us like 5-10 minutes just to get our feet in the water.

Courtney you have guts and fearless. How was it? xo

Courtney said...

So it was definitely a very, very strange feeling. I'm still not sure if I was more disgusted over the slimy fish texture flapping around my ticklish feet or the fact that I worried how much fish poop and grime was going on in that pool. Nonetheless I'm glad we did it because really I'm a sucker for anything that makes me laugh. And squeal.

We did the trial run; RM5 for 10 minutes, and it also took us nearly 7 minutes to fully submerge our feet. You really do get used to the feeling though and it quits tickling and grossing you out after a few minutes!
