Breast slapping - not sure if it's for me!

You know how you get those emails (thank you Ernie) from time to time, that you just want to share with everyone. Couldn't go past putting this on Cooee....since it's so totally Thailand.

"Sometimes we have to refuse treatment because some breasts are too small to be enlarged." 
I can just see the tears now.

This is the original article in the Herald Sun

Apparently it's not a new concept -
The Independent 2003 
The Health Ministry offers the classes as a substitute for silicone implant surgery, increasingly common among slender Thais. The government seems to consider the beauty of Thai women a vital natural resource to be better developed....The ministry launched a six -month study on volunteers aged 20 to 60, and found vigorous massage left their breasts cancer-free and measurably bigger.
Hmm...not sure, but I reckon if I went in for regular slapping around, I'd increase by a few centimetres of swelling too. Although, I did read that it not only involves slapping, but also pinching massaging and the permanent relocation of fat! So, maybe I could have my butt and thighs gradually relocated to my chest?

One thing I do know for sure is, that at 8 - 10 million baht per course, I'm in the wrong business.

Any thoughts?

Oh. Lordy. Lordy :-D

TiT takes on a totally new meaning.

@Catherine I'm a bit slow, didn't even make the connection between these tits and sad of me. That would have opened a hole other can of worms = puns :)

For anyone not in the know 'TiT' stands for 'This Is Thailand'... so, anything is possible :)

@Catherine Blatantly obvious one shouldn't drink and blog...TiT is one of the labels/keywords I chose for this post. Perhaps I need slapping around the ear'oles.

Snap, don't feel bad. I didn't find the tit / TiT elsewhere either.

There I was on Friday night, laughing my head off at the connection - but I discovered I was laughing alone.

Not for long though :-D

@Catherine there is that awkward moment when one laughs alone, for too long, isn't there :)

@The Expat Wife I know what you mean...I feel it too :)

Good luck with your move later this year. I was reading your blog, but couldn't leave a comment?
