Not so lucky at lucky draw, visiting hot water spring

It’s official now that I will be owning my own house. I have paid the remaining of the 10% down payment, and have signed the Sales & Purchase Agreement (SPA). Will be receiving the signed copy of the agreement in 2 weeks time according to the lawyer.

I guess just to attract people to look for a loan and pay the 10% down payment quickly, the developer is setting up this lucky draw for those who signed the SPA and pay the 10% down payment already. Well, I was there today. The price started with table fan, standing fan, and gets bigger to vacuum cleaner, fridge and air conditioner. And the grand prize is 32-inch LCD TV.

But I always not that lucky to win any of the lucky draw. And it’s so lucky for that “kakak” to walk home with a brand new LCD TV. Gosh. I want that badly. Well, during the lucky draw, the host say something like “does anyone of you having itchy hand today?”. Well, I told my friend I had an itchy feet. There’s a little skin infection (ulat air) between one of my toe, and it’s been like that for 2 weeks already. My friend suggested that I should immerse my feet in hot water.

You guess what? We went to Kolam Air Panas Hulu Tamu at Batang Kali straight after that. This is naturally peoduced hot water anyway, and people said that it has healing capability.

This is where it begins, the water that is heated by geothermal heat in non-volcanic areas. I’m on 50mm lens, and couldn’t get better view of this pool.

Anyway, it really hot. But I don’t know how hot it is. Wish I have the thermometer with me. But it does give a soothing feeling having my toes in the water. But I can only have my toes inside the water for 5 seconds only. And I kinda wondering there’s one uncle there who immerse his whole body in the pool for 5 minutes. I guess I will be cooked if I do that.

    heheheh hot spring ni panasnye masa awl2 kita masuk je imran. takde laa smpi bole masak dlm tu hahahhhhaahaha (rasanyelah) awk try duduk 5 minit, pastu rasa biase je..

    sy penah dok dlm sejam lebih kot. tp bile keluar mmg peninglah – sbb ade sulfur dlm air tu. heheheheh.

    actually pening tuh bukan pasal the sulfur, but your whole body fluid is rather rushing (kinetic energy) produced by the heat. Much like a boiling water. Except for the bubbles.. hehhehe.. you blood pressure will raise significantly but blood flow will be smooth. Thats the the actual healing property of hot springs.

    The sulfur is corrosive to the skin. But you should have smooth skin after.

    wahh,.. officially a home owner. congrats bro :). Any advice on housing loans ?

    am still confused.

    masy: huhu. taklehlah. kaki saya tu amat sensitif ngan heat. kalau masukkan tangan, leh plak lelama. tapi kalau masuk kaki, rasa perit teramat. anyway, dah kering dah athelete foot saya tuh

    sankai: from my reading, the sulphur smell is caused by the gas released by anaerobic bacteria in hot water.
