Planning to Visit the Philippines Soon?
There are hundreds of tourists attractions in the Philippines. But as a lover of the Island of Marinduque (Home of the Morions and Heart of the Philippines), I am indeed partial to its beauty, charm and its friendly and hospitable residents. Therefore, help me achieve my dream of seeing this island becomes a world tourist destination, by telling all your friends and relatives about this site. Welcome, to you all, new readers and faithful followers of this site! The photo above is Poctoy White Beach in Torrijos, Marinduque with beautiful and majestic Mt Malindig in the background. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on infringing your copyrights.

Weirdest News I have Read this Week
What is going on in Japan? Is the country turning on to Cannibalism? Or is this just to attract attention? Judge for yourself after reading this article from www.gawker.com this week. Penis Eating Event Under Investigation This April, Japanese illustrator Mao Sugiyama offered to cook a special meal: the illustrator's surgically removed genitals. The following month, five diners paid the equivalent of US$250 to eat Sugiyama's bait and tackle, served with Italian parsley and garnished with button mushrooms. Approximately 70 people attended the event in Tokyo's Suginami Ward on May 18 to watch five individuals chow down on Sugiyama's cooked privates. While cannibalism is not illegal in Japan per se, health officials in Tokyo are now investigating the event. According to The Mainichi, health officials are investigating to see if any food hygiene laws were broken during the event; however, the event sponsor said that no laws were broken in eating a human body part that was legally removed by a medical institution. The Mainichi does not point out that, like in most countries, it's illegal to sell one's organs in Japan, which puts this meal in gray legal territory. You cannot even sell your own blood (blood donors get free drinks, instead). But, hey, charging people to eat your body parts is cool as long as you don't break hygiene laws? Sounds like a legal cock-up. Note: This news reminds of Philippines soup # 5 made of bull's testicles and phallus.
