Let's Save Our Planet: The Ifugao Rice Terraces: Saving a Wonder of the World

Mr. & Ms. Vol. 20 Nos. 45 & 46, March 18 & 25, 1997

The “Let’s Save Our Planet” section of Mr. & Ms. featured in two succeeding issues (March 18 and March 25, 1997) my article “The Ifugao Rice Terraces: Saving a Wonder of the World.” This is an updated version of an earlier write-up of the same title I wrote for Celebrity World May 8, 1995 issue.

The “Girl Trivia” section of MOD Girl March 25, 2005 issue featured a much abbreviated version of the “In the Bible” article that I submitted. I didn’t like it, because for me nothing in the Bible is trivial. It only included two items: “It is Not Delilah” that cut Samson’s hair, and “The Construction of Noah’s Ark.”
NOTE: See also “Noah, His Ark and the Great Flood: They are for Real” (Mr. & Ms., March 30, 2017) for the entire article, “Straight from the Bible” (Prime Weekly Edition, March 31, 1988) and “Facts from the Bible” (Celebrity World, April 17, 1995) posts.

“If something is crooked, you can’t make it straight. If something is missing, you can’t say it is there..... With much wisdom comes much disappointment; the person who gains more knowledge also gains more sorrow.” – Ecclesiastes 1:15 & 18, The Everyday Bible, New Century Version.


  1. Though not related to the Rice Terraces article, what page(s) of the Mr. & Ms. March 18, 1997 contained the full cover story on Stefano Mori, Angelica Panganiban, Carlo Aquino, and Camille Prats? I still don't have a copy of that issue.
