isda - chu

I don't eat fish except for tuna. And I'm not talking about sushi-type of tuna, more of the Century variety. Some people call tuna as the "chicken of the sea" even if they don't really fly.

As I've said, I don't eat fish but they sure love eating me.

Me and Yuan went to experience the Fish Spa at the Manila Ocean Park recently. "Treatment" is done by immersing the feet in a pool and the little flesh eating fishes (Garra rufa) feed on the loose and dead skin. As you can see from the picture above, the fishes attacked my feet. It was very ticklish but not painful. My feet were noticeably smooth after the 20 minute feeding session.

Contrary to popular belief, the fish spa is not a new idea. The Kangal Spa in Turkey has been in operation since the early 1900's. There are even some historical evidences that show they've been around for ages.
