Wax Hand Union Review

Making a wax model of your own hand seems like the newest money-wasting fad in town.
waxhand

Good to see. Nice to hold. Totally useless like an asshole.

I spotted one these Wax Hand Union kiosks in Tun Jugah Shopping Centre a few months back. Since then, a couple more of these kiosks mushroomed all over town, usually manned by bored-looking Ah Bengs napping in their seats.

As is the case with every other fad franchising business, these kiosks eventually lose money, close down, and slowly disappear one by one.

Out of curiousity, I got a wax model of my hand done a long long time ago. Naturally, I chose the most appropriate hand gesture that came to mind.




waxhand

"WHAT? WANNA FIGHT AH? NAH!!! KANEBO CHAO CIBA VISION!"

That was around two months back. I kinda left the wax model in the cupboard and forgotten all about it. The recent spate of childish attack comments on my site suddenly reminded me that I had this 'secret counter weapon' hidden away.

Unfortunately when I dug it out of its box, I found this instead.
waxhand

Oops.

Damn. There's nothing more frustrating than a body part turning flaccid when you needed it most.

So anyway, I was at Tun Jugah yesterday shopping for some business shirts at G2000 when I impulsively decided to get another wax hand model done.

The girl at the counter quoted me the price of RM10 for a single hollow hand wax, an additional RM5 for a base, and another RM15 if I were to make it solid.
waxhand

Exhibit A: A typical money-losing business.

I was tempted to pay RM30 to go for the full package considering my middle-finger wax model had collapsed earlier. But then I thought RM30 for crappy wad of wax isn't worth it. She however, convinced me to go for a hollow model and if it were to collapse, she'll do me a solid one for another RM15. I agreed.
waxhand

Ice Ice Baby.

I opted to do a wax model of my half-clenched fist.

The girl first immersed my hand into a container of ice-cold water. This is to numb my hand sufficiently for the hot wax later, but I think she overdid it. The water was so cold I almost went into hypothermia.
waxhand

Feelin' Hot Hot Hot!

And here's my hand dipped into hot wax. I always thought 'dipping my hand into hot wax' sounded kinda kinky. Not this time.

She dipped my hand into cold water and hot wax alternately for a couple of times until a layer of wax forms on the surface. Its a little painful to have my ice-cold hand immersed into hot wax immediately. My half-clenched fist contracted involuntarily which means the end result probably wouldn't be what I wanted.
waxhand

From this angle, it looked like I was tweaking her nipple but I swear its not like that.

Finally a thick layer of wax has formed tightly on my hand. The girl umm.... gave me a hand by peeling my shaped wax off. It felt bizarrely good. The sensation is like removing a tight sweaty hand glove on a hot day. I was lucky the hair on my hand didn't go with it.

All that's left to do is touch up on the model...
waxhand

The HAND model, not the GIRL model!

Dip it into some coloured wax...
waxhand

Choose between red, blue or yellow!

Attach it to the base...
waxhand

Yes I chose a heart-shaped base. Don't ask. They don't have much choice.

TADA!
waxhand

My very own wax hand model!

Brilliant, eh?

So, the next big question is then... what the foot am I gonna use this for?
waxhand

Well my friends. Surprisingly, there are many ways an additional hand can come in err... handy.

For example, you can use it to act like you're in shock.
waxhand

Put in on your desk and show people how much bling-bling you've got.
waxhand

And err... I leave it up to your imagination here. ;)
waxhand

Anyone have any other suggestions?

you could use it to throw a punch at those childish people instead of the finger ;)

Unregistered

Oh man, dipping it in ice cold water then hot wax then ice cold water then hot wax sounds ... very kinky? DOnt leave it near anywhere hot!

Unregistered

you're right to say those things are utterly useless. they're kind of freaky in a way. your first one was especially a rip-off hahah. but to their credit, it must take some level of 'expertise' in order to create such maginificent 'masterpieces'. LOL i actually thought it was your hairy leg you were dipping in the first picture ahahah

Unregistered

The small hole in your third hand actually hold the 'big bird' ?

Unregistered

Unregistered

Hairy!

If you like wax, you could try doing Brazilian waxing. It's.. painfully enjoyable. LOL.

Isn't it like weird if you had to use your hand to hold ANOTHER hand to.. erm.. do as your last photo? Wouldn't it be easier and.. not to mention.. more sensational to use the first hand? I mean, the wax is like.. cold? And if things get heated up.. your new wax hand will probably become like your previous wax hand!

Unregistered

go scratch nipples.

Unregistered

Find a pau. Place pau in wax hand.

Unregistered

your face reminds me of an old friend of mine, he's also a joker and always makes those around him happy! Now he's in malacca doing engineering but he plans to be a pilot.

Unregistered

i like the put money to show how much blingbling part..=) i think i might get 1 too..jes for the sake of a namecard holder..

Unregistered

oh, i know i know! you could bite ur wax nails instead of the real ones.. and never let your manicure go to waste again. Yay^^

Unregistered

the girl pretty sia!

Unregistered

They're right, Kenny... you really ARE quite hairy!

*Insert really lame joke here if your name was Harry and not Kenny.*

Unregistered

elb, oh yeahhh!

Twit, don't you think hot wax is kinky? Gee what's wrong with you! :D

lilyng, HAHA! Now why on earth would I wanna make a model of my hairy feet? To stick it up people's arse?

sandkan, I know I know. Unfortunately I clenched my fist too tightly.

Din, I'd be so flatter if you were to link to me. I love it when silent readers reveal themselves.

Jin, gee thanks! In a weird kinda way.

zeke, a lot of people tell me hairy arms is digusting. So I don't know how many people out there actually likes it.

cakie, I shall hold a birthday party for my asshole then.

Joe, haha! There's nothing like going to your bedroom and have someone hand you a clean pair of underwear.

Jase, yes I know, I know.

babysalad, tell me you think hairy legs are sexy as well and I'll hook up with you.

chrissie, well rm15 is the price of a meal anyway. Anyway I got tiffy her bday pressie already.

crazy, I hope you're not a guy when you say things like that!

belacans, I actually tried to put an ice cream cone on it. Didn't work. :|

e, HAHAHAHAHAHA!! My gawd, eddie! You and your dirty mind. ;)

Jordan, maybe I can use it to clean my arsehole at areas where the toilet paper can't reach. But I'm afraid it'll leave a wad of wax on my arse... which wouldn't look too good.

WanYi, phoar! That's the first time I hear that expression. "Brazillian waxing is painfully enjoyable." I wouldn't mind giving it a try and blog about it, but I'm afraid they're gonna wax my testicles off.

mk, the wax is too smooth to do any scratching lah.

NSDS3, eat pau off wax hand.

Lyon, its not all that fashionable. Its just really novel. :)

slick, too bad I holed up in Kuching doing something unrelated to engineering and have no immediate plans to fly SIA airplanes... mymy

Unregistered

Unregistered

Haha...I was gonna suggest the last photo ever since I read the words 'half clenched fist'....haha

Unregistered

Ha! My father also did the hand-wax at a Mother's day luncheon my sister took my parents to. After a few days the fingers droopped down. But it wasn't so bad because it was free ;)

Unregistered

bling bling = jewellery its not money in hip hop language.

Unregistered

i didnt know you could do that with a fake hand ?
does it work?
or you need more curve between your finges???

Unregistered

a guy like you need a guy like me around... go to petaling street i'll prolly save 1/3 the money you spend and still have enough to buy you a wax job for your right hand ^_^

Unregistered

Hey guy! I think it's really nice. But I wonder how could you take your hand out of the wax cover? Did they have to cut it?

Unregistered

Yeah, I've seen this at the french castle, Berjaya Hills Resort - Malaysia. The stall was sorrounded by freaking lots of ppl and i wonder what the crap is that! I think the owner of this franchise is f****king rich. Anybody interested to setup one of these biz ^~^

Unregistered
