In Beijing, China, a middle-aged man who was only identified as Wong went for a fish spa session on New Year’s Eve maybe to relax; however, things didn’t go the way it supposed to be as he ends up killing all the fish!

How did that happen? He has stinky feet.

According to World of Buzz, Wong has been working in an IT company for over 10 years and because he works overtime almost every day, he rarely has time for himself.

His parents became worried about his life because, at the age of 35, he was still single; so, his parents introduced him to a lady and they went really well, thinking to marry in the near future.

On New Year’s Eve, Wong and his girlfriend decided to spend that day together. They enjoyed steamboating and his girlfriend invited him to a fish spa session. Though Wong constantly found excuses not to go, they eventually went to the fish spa.
