Have you ever had fish sucking and eating your feet? The norm is that ,we as humans, cook (or not *think sushi*) our fish and eat them but this time around, those little swimming flippers-thingy are actually devouring us (nope... not piranhas..)!
Introducing the garra rufa fishes :) They are basically combfishes and will eat dead skin cells leaving healthy skin to grow... In some places, they are also known as doctor fishes.
Well, I do think my feet felt smoother after dipping it in the aquarium full of garra rufa fishes. I do wonder, however, if that feeling was psychological.
It was really ticklish initially and I just couldn't stop giggling and laughing :P Couldn't even put my feet back into the aquarium but Lay Ling encouraged me (thanks!) and I thought I shouldn't waste my $$ and also an opportunity of trying this out with my friends.
We are all first-timers!
