Enchong Dee learns lesson after being stung by jellyfish the second time


Vacationing in Mariveles, Bataan with friends last weekend, Elise star Enchong Dee shared that he got stung again by jellyfish while swimming. The Kapamilya actor first got stung last year while competing in a triathlon competition in Cebu. “Yung last August kasi yung sa Ironman, ano naman siya, parang maliliit lang. Hindi siya yung grabe. Marami siya pero alam kong bata pa yung jellyfish. Ito ngayon para siyang full grown eh. So sana nga nakita ko pero hindi ko na rin napansin,” he shared during the Elise grand media conference held at the Regal Films compound in Quezon City last January 16. 

The actor-athlete said he did not see the need to go to a hospital after realizing what happened. “Hindi na, hindi ko na pinaabot sa ospital kasi magpa-panic yung mga magulang ko. Pero kaya naman. Kumbaga hindi ko rin naman siya ipo-post kung alam kong delikado, kung alam kong matatakot yung mga tao. Hindi ko rin nakita eh. Naramdaman ko siya na dumaan pero hindi ko siya nakita. Kaya medyo nung nakadating ako dun sa yacht, sobrang ligo kagad. Akala ko konting mark lang tapos pagdating ko nung kinaumagahan siya actually lumabas na grabe. As in nakaangat pa yung balat,” he said.

Enchong shared his advice for those planning to swim in open water like him. “Siguro doble ingat lang at saka wear proper swimming attire kapag lalangoy ka sa hindi mo alam yung lugar na paglalanguyan mo. Kasi kahit marunong ka lumangoy pero hindi mo alam yung mga creatures sa ilalim eh. So lumalangoy lang ako, hindi ko alam na dumapo sa akin tapos hindi ko alam na ganun pala ka-grabe yung dumapo sa akin. Pero patuloy ko siyang ginagamot. So puro gamot gamot lang para hindi siya magmarka,” he added.

Enchong stars in the upcoming Regal Films pre-Valentine offering Elise along with Janine Gutierrez, Laura Lehmann, and Miko Raval. Directed by Joel Ferrer. Elise opens in cinemas nationwide starting February 9.
