The fish spa treatment is not something new. A novel spa treatment said to originate with the doctor fish in Turkey, it's been around town for a couple of years. Basically what you do is to soak your feet in an aquarium of fishes who will then start to 'work' religiously on your feet. Yes, it will be sooner than you think when different schools of fish start nibbling on the dead skin cells by crapping their tiny mouths against your skin. Think of it like using a facial scrub or going for demabrasion but this time it's exfoliation done the natural way. 

The best part of it is that you become food for the fishes as it's amusing how hungry the fishes are as they swim towards you. It's no secret that the owners don't feed them too often, less they not do their job. And all this nibbling action cum massage is supposed to reveal smoother and healthier skin. 

But if you think the fishes are only content to be nibbling away at your dead skin cells on your feet, think again. A particular fish spa shop in Singapore has now creatively introduced the fish spa hand treatment.


Looking at the both the locals and tourists in the small crammed shop seated on a neon-lighted wooden bench brought back the good old school days of sitting obediently on the tuckshop bench during recess time. The only difference was that everybody happily inserted all ten fingers into a long pond of water filled with the doctor fish. And judging from their bemused looks, I bet all were enjoying such a sight of watching the fishes swim towards their fingers and start nibbling away at the dead skin cells. Are you about to become fish food? Haha...

Who says you should only be doing your medicures and pedicures these days? Throw in a fish spa hand treatment as well to pamper yourselves and reward your often overworked hands to reveal younger, smoother skin :)



I've just finished two grooming workshops today. They are of a slightly different nature from the ones I'm doing because there's more at stake for the participants today! Guess what? The grooming workshops today were specially customised to suit the needs of the Top 24 semi-finalists of the Kovan Superstar 2010 Singing Competition.

Open to all Singaporeans aged between 13 to 26 years old, the three-year-old Kovan Superstar seeks to unearth more local singing sensations. I feel really privileged to be able to provide grooming and style advice to the top 24 semi-finalists as they attend specially organised grooming workshops this afternoon.




From being a contestant myself in many past competitions to now being elevated to helping other contestants spruce up their image quotient for the upcoming last two rounds, I fully understand the feelings of the contestants. It's a competition after all and may the best guy or girl win. Yet, it's more than just a singing competition as the judges will be looking for not just vocal prowess but also the star quality. And that's what the participants were seeking to unravel during today's grooming workshop. How could each contestant up his or her own stage presence and impress at first sight with the right dressing?

Dressing for a performance on stage is different from dressing for work or play. It requires knowing your own personality style, song genre and message you want to convey to the judges. Depending on the number you are singing - hip-hop, R&B or ballad, you dress accordingly. 

I'm very happy the participants found the workshops useful as by letting me know how they felt through their testimonials, I know deep down inside I've done my part to help them ace the next round. I'm looking forward to seeing their performance and new looks at the forthcoming semi-finals on 19 June 2010 at Heartland Mall. You rock!
