False news about a Nuclear blast in Fukushima Japan and  "nuclear rain" are spreading through the electronic media in Asia, particularly the Philippines. This hoax message has been circulating  through text messages, email, Facebook, Twitter, online discussion forums, blogs etc.

At least, let us be aware of it – though I do not know how far we will be affected!!

Be Careful, If it rains
There was a nuclear blast 4:30pm Sunday in Fukushima Japan. If it rains today or in the next few days, DO NOT GO UNDER THE RAIN. If you get caught out, use an umbrella or raincoat, even if it's only a drizzle. Radioactive particles, which may cause burns, alopecia or even cancer, may be in the rain.
BBC flash news :
Japan government confirms radiation leak at Fukushima nuclear plants. Asian countries should take necessary precautions. If it rains, remain indoors first 24hours, close doors n windows, swab neck skin with beta-dine where thyroid area is, radiation hits thyroid first. Take extra precautions, radiation may hit Philippines starting 4pm (Pinas time) today!

[CHAIN Letter] Money is yours but resources belong to society

Subject: Money is yours but resources belong to society


Germany is a highly industrialised country. It produces top brands
like Benz, BMW, Siemens etc. The nuclear reactor pump is made in a small
town in this country.
In such a country, many will think its people lead a luxurious life.
At least that was my impression before my study trip.

When I arrived at Hamburg, my colleagues who work in Hamburg arranged
a welcome party for me in a restaurant.
As we walked into the restaurant, we noticed that a lot of tables were
empty. There was a table where a young
couple was having their meal. There were only two dishes and two cans of
beer on the table. I wondered if such simple meal could be romantic, and
whether the girl will leave this stingy guy.

There were a few old ladies on another table. When a dish is served,
the waiter would distribute the food for them, and they would finish every
bit of the food on their

We did not pay much attention to them, as we were looking forward to
the dishes we ordered. As we were hungry, our local colleague ordered
more food for

 As the restaurant was quiet, the food came quite fast. Since there
were other activities arranged for us, we did not spend much time dining.
When we left, there was still about one third of unconsumed food on the

 When we were leaving the restaurant, we heard someone calling us. We
noticed the old ladies in the restaurant were talking about us to
the restaurant owner. When they spoke to us in English, we understood
that they were unhappy about us wasting so much food. We immediately felt

"We paid for our food, it is none of your business how much food we
left behind," my colleague Gui told the old ladies.

The old ladies were furious. One of them immediately took her hand phone out
and made a call to someone. After a while, a man in uniform claimed to be an
officer from the Social Security organisation arrived. Upon knowing  what
the dispute was, he issued us a 50 Mark fine.
We all kept quiet. The local colleague took out a 50 Mark note
and repeatedly apologized to the

The officer told us in a stern voice, "ORDER WHAT YOU CAN CONSUME, MONEY IS

Our face turned red. We all agreed with him in our hearts. The mindset of
people of this rich country put all of us to shame. WE REALLY NEED TO
REFLECT ON THIS. We are from  country which is not very rich in resources.
To save face, we order large quantity and also waste food when we give

My colleague photostatted the fine ticket and gave a copy to each of us as
a souvenir. All of us kept it and pasted on our wall to remind us that we
shall never be wasteful.
