Pavilion Food Republic + Kenko Fish Spa

Was at Pav for 2 days in a row. No, I am not a rich Datuk's wife that can spend money in Pav, but I was invited to go there for lunch. And Spa ;)

Food Republic is a food court from Singapore, and it's hell of a good business at Pav, varieties of food choices there, Korean, Vietnam, local, Thai, Teppanyaki, Malay etc.

Mee Rebus

Scallop and Peanut Soup from Ah Yip Herbal Soup

Fried Prawn Noodles

I thought those transparent white strips were bean sprouts at first. Was wondering how come there are more taugehs than noodles. Mana tau it's actually "lai-fun", a type of noodles, similar to the assam laksa noodles :)

Sea Coconut with Ice Shavings

Korean Spicy Beef Soup with Vegetables

It was so so... I think the Stone Pot Rice would taste better.

I was with a few AUNTIES that were very gian to try the newly opened Fish Spa. (Err, what? Fish? Spa? Spa with Fish?? Geli!)

A new trend in town. A brand from Singapore. (Nampak macam aquarium shop aje), kekeke, yeah, it looks like a landscape/fish shop but let's look inside.

This 'ponds' are filled with small little fishy called the Garra Rufa fish. Also known as "Doctor Fish" that hails from Turkey. What these little grey fishies do is they nibble your legs' dead body cells, believing that it is able to ease skin diseases, make your skin smoother and promote blood circulation.

Shucks... my leg banyak dead cell...

Erm, sorry about the fat chubby leg and the banyak bulu... I wonder these fishes ever feel full... Because they nibble non stop.

How does it feel? Erm, very very ticklish and you can really feel the fishes nibbling. I had to cover my mouth with my hands to stop myself from screaming or laughing. But after 5 minutes or so it's less ticklish.

Doesn't feel any difference now, perhaps you must go a couple of times to get the effect, or perhaps my feet has too much dead cells. But it's definitely a good experience. They also have other massages such as foot reflexology, shoulder, head or hand massage.

Price: RM38 for half an hour
*Look out for promotions that combines other massages with fish spa. Mine was 45 minutes foot reflex with 20 minutes fish nibbling for RM69 - New Year promotion.
