doctor fish

Smelly, nasty, disease infested feet? Well not to worry, the fish will eat it away….

 

So we went to the new Manila Ocean Park the other day. It was a lot of fun seeing giant fish, some even bigger than my little sister. I really like going to aquariums, there’s a sense of calm there with fish just floating around and everything just seems tranquil.

 

At the end of our tour, we went upstairs to check out the Fish Spa. Basically, you dip your feet into a small pool of water, and these little tiny fish come over and nibble on your skin.

 

No, it doesn’t hurt at all; in fact, it actually just tickles, A LOT.

 

They’re called Doctor Fish, and they actually help you take care of your skin. See, they eat away all the dead skin as well as any other impurities you may have on the surface. On the other hand, they don’t touch any of your healthy skin.

 

It took a while for me to get my whole foot into the spa coz it just ticked too much. But it was actually really nice and relaxing after I got used to it. You should’ve seen the fish, they were all over my feet! They were having a damn banquet and it seemed like my feet had the best steaks and lobsters in town! I wonder if I should be proud of that or if that actually means my feet are nasty….

 

Anyway, what was actually really funny was that the Fish Spa was right next to the Shark tank. With my genius IQ, I might have dipped my feet into the shark tank…. but I guess they do work faster and more efficiently in that tank… ten seconds and all the dirt on your feet will be gone! Well, including your feet that is…

    There are a lot of shark conservation voeeutlnr opportunities around the world! Most you can find online through a simple search or by becoming involved in shark conservation organisations. You can help with monitoring shark populations and behaviour, beach clean-ups which help all kinds of marine life, educating people about sharks at marine centres, supporting marine conservation campaigns, or writing about the issue in your spare time. With organisations such as the Shark Trust, you can also adopt’ a shark. Just keep learning and sharing your passion, any way you can! Good luck!

    I would recommend 1or 2 caeuplss per day. Regarding the brand I suggest you to go for the wild salmon oil. It is available in caps. form but also as pure oil. If you choose to have the oil all you need is 5 ml.I hope this is helpful to you

  4. I’m really into it, thanks for this great stuff!

    Thanks for the link, Mike! I know that not all of those NGO’s are everybody’s fveroitas, but I’ve worked with them all and had largely positive results. Not everyone is in a position to save the world, but most of them do a good job in their little corner of it.
