Yesterday I went to Baguio City to take some breather, only for a day though. Surprisingly the weather was not cold anymore, but quiet good a refresher for someone like me who rarely got the chance to go places. Of course, I didn't miss to visit Burnham Park. There were many people in the park. I love to see families taking time to bring their children to play in the park, having snacks while sitting on the grass, talking and just taking time slow.
It's quite a sight as well to see those 'manongs' and 'manangs' industriously selling corn cubs, balloons, green mangoes, peanuts, cotton candies for visitors to grab. I couldn't resist not to try strawberry taho.
I took the time to stroll the park, imbibing the scenery when I noticed in one corner some ladies having pedicure right at the park!
I love to pamper my nails all the time. But not under a tree at the park. I don't intend to belittle those ladies who had their pampering at the park. It's just that, there's no way that those pedicure sets were sterilized or at least being cleaned before jumping to another client. Don't take this for granted ladies, as well as gentlemen. Diseases such as HIV, hepatitis among others CAN be acquired in that way. Yes! When someone who happened to have hepatitis, and the manicurist accidentally pricked and made that person to bleed, and the next client happened to have an opened wound, that gives a way for that person to get HIV or hepatitis. It may sound obscure to some, but the chance to get sick in that way cannot be discounted. There's no harm in being cautious. If you love to pamper your nails, please bring your own pedicure/manicure sets, or at least go to a reliable salon where you're sure they have their instruments sterilized or cleaned. Cliche but true: prevention is always better than cure.
Be careful everyone! :-)
