She can be your mermaid for $1,600

MALAYSIA - Fancy cosying up to a sexy mermaid at your next pool party?

You don't have to look that far to hire one.

Meet Malaysian model Felixia Yeap, whose latest business venture - involving the attachment of colourful fins, scales and a long tail to her body - has been raising eyebrows.

Yeap, 27, is no stranger to controversy.

In May 2011, she made headlines in Asia by becoming Malaysia's first and only Playboy Bunny when she was handpicked for a waitressing job at Macau's Playboy Club Macao, a swanky nightspot for high-rollers.

She was offered a full-time position by its manager via Facebook in September 2010, but she chose to do a one-month stint instead as she was bent on "returning to modelling" in her home country.

The club, located at Sands Macao Hotel, has since closed.

These days, the bosomy former kindergarten teacher who boasts enviable 32C assets is making waves literally - by swimming while dressed as a mermaid at parties.

In a phone interview with The New Paper from her home in Kuala Lumpur, Yeap said her decision to embark on her side career a year ago was born out of a "childhood dream".
