Has anyone else heard about this? It was in the news, I guess. They are warning swimmers to be careful. Bull sharks are more likely to attack people than any other shark species.
I went to Kenting this weekend and there were people swimming as usual. I didn’t see any sharks but for the first time in my entire life, I rubbed against a jellyfish. It doesn’t feel too good. I’ve been diving for many years and I’ve spent my fare share of time in the ocean, swimming, snorkeling and diving. It never happened to me before. Call me lucky.
When the jellyfish made contact with my left bicep, it hurt immediately. It felt like an electric shock, almost. I rushed out of the water but the damage was done. It created a severe rash the size of a baseball. My arm was burning for about three hours. There are no doctors in Kenting that we know of and it was Sunday. I went to the Fu Dog surf shop instead where the owner kindly treated the affected area with vinegar. Thanks to them, I will survive.
