By
Wooden masks, which sell for P4,000 to P5,000 each, are used during the Moriones Festival, one of the oldest religion-themed festivals in the country. The annual weeklong tradition starts with a grand parade of the Morions on Holy Monday in all six municipalities of Marinduque province. “Morion” derives from the crested metal helmet with curved peak in front and back worn by soldiers centuries ago.

Don’t be surprised when you bump into a sword-wielding Roman soldier here these days. He or she is most probably a Marinduqueño behind the traditional centurion mask and the macho-looking armored costume of a “Morion.”

Japan has officially left me on a high. There’s this warm, fuzzy feeling I get just looking at all the photos I took of Japan—approximately one thousand in number, not including the files in some of my memory cards yet to be imported to my laptop—taken from more or less ten different locations in the four days I stayed there.

To avoid fight with spouse, eat a snack

This undated handout photo provided by Ohio State University shows an all purpose voodoo doll. A quick candy bar may stave off more than hunger. It could prevent major fights between husbands and wives, at least if a new study involving voodoo dolls is right. Psychology researchers monitored the nightly blood sugar levels of 107 married couples for three weeks, asking them to stick pins in a voodoo doll representing their spouses to measure aggression. They found that the lower the blood sugars, the higher the crankiness, and the more pins pushed into the voodoo doll, according to a study released Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The people with the lowest glucose scores pushed twice in general as many pins on average as those with the highest blood sugar levels, the researchers said.
