Let your worries sink the drain with this special spa pampering Float Culture.  The mechanics are that you are put inside a futuristic pod to make you completely weightless.

The spa becomes even more relaxing when you are treated with your favorite music to listen to which helps you to ignore all your troubles.

There are regular makeup workshops held in Auckland and Wellington by BodyFX. If you think you are a Halloween geek during the season, the FX-Zombie school, in particular, will teach you how to turn yourself into a malevolent looking zombie within five hours. You are just in a dire need of some FXpaste, latex, paints, prosthetics and clay and bam! You have everything you need to enact a zombie. But if you are not a big fan of the activity, there are other non-zombie workshops as well where all you need to do is body art and an epic session on wounds and scars.

5. Take up Zombie Survival Challenge
