One of my earliest article contributions for Mr. & Ms. magazine is “Stop Stuffing the (Sea) Turtles” (p. 19) that was featured in the magazine’s “Let’s Save Our Planet” section.

In my early freelance career as a magazine contributor, I used to make all sorts of trivia “quizzes” and “puzzlers” like “Quiz for the Wiz” for Chinatown East magazine, “Showbiz Quiz” for MOD Filipina magazine, and “Braintwister” for Mr. & Ms. magazine. I try to make them unique and interesting. Here’s an example, “Word Countries” in Mr. & Ms. “Braintwister” March 21, 2000 issue, where I even added an illustration.

“To the LORD belong the earth and everything in it, the world and all its inhabitants. For it was He who founded it on the seas and planted it firm on the waters beneath.” – Psalms 24:1-2, The Revised English Bible with Apocrypha.
