Yesterday, I picked up a book at our university bookstore, and here are some of the interesting things that it contained:

  • A “diplomat” who bared her breasts to the North Koreans
  • Men who fall in love with their latex companions
  • Sushi chefs who replace the real thing with dubious fish
  • Children who feed off their parents—long into adulthood
  • An investigative reporter who predicted his own death
  • Men who dress in lingerie under their business suits
  • Ninja-stealthy sex molesters who target female commuters
  • Compulsive shoppers who cram their small homes with goods
  • Parents who dress up their children—like pets or dolls
  • A rapist who targeted the suicidal via the web

For those of you who want to know more about the real Japan, check out Tabloid Tokyo (http://www.kodansha-intl.com/books/html/en/477002892X.html) .

This is one book that’s difficult to leave unfinished!

Araaaay, tinamaan yata ako diyan sa compulsive shopper na yan!

O mga Pinay diyan, magpakatutuo at aminin… tulad ng sabi ng billboard sa isang department store sa States na nagkaroon ng sale (ng sapatos yata) …

“There’s an Imelda in all of us…”

Bow! Este, BUY pala!
