"They came swiftly, and tagged
their prey "GMO RISK RICE."

Their judgement was as swift. Don't
unload them Rice,they say, its not safe!"

That is Greenpeace's message to the gang of reporters who waited for their stunt. As you can see, they succefully flagged MV Liberty Eagle, a ship carrying some 44,000 tons of rice imported from the United States of America (USA).

The rice shipment is being unloaded at the Naval Supply Depot (NSD) pier here.

Daniel M. Ocampo, genetic engineering campaigner of Greenpeace Southeast Asia argued that the National Food Authority (NFA) "must quarantine this shipment and run stringent tests based on European Union protocols before the rice is distributed to the public."

By the way, the rice shipment, according to the National Food Authority (NFA) passed their testing.

Is it a Broken Window or a Crystal Clear Pane for;

1.) the Greenpeace activists and their stunts?

2.) the National Food Authority (NFA) for allowing the importation of the supposedly GMO-contaminated rice?

3.) this article because it ain't worth the webspace?

Crystal pane for TOTALMED

Belo brand in TOTALMED

Dra. Vicky Belo's presence lent some glitz to the opening affair, but I've been to some Belo clinics in the Metro, and this clinic needs more of the class and comfort of.. well, Belo.

TOTALMED is an ambulatory, diagnostics and aesthetic center. So the Belo thingy is in the aesthetic services. My best guess is that they will decouple the soft aesthetic stuff with the emergency and laboratory services in the coming months.

Still, the firm is the best the you can find in Subic, and maybe in the whole Region 3. Its medical staff line-up is pretty impressive.

They could have recruited Dr. V of Dr. V's Make-Over Clinic. Then again, there could only be one queen, right?

In the interest of full disclosure, Dr. V is a friend of mine, but even if she wasn't, her name would help in the corporate image of the TOTALMED.

For those intending to be a patients, here is a link to their prices

Obviously, I haven't mustered enough courage to try their services, yet. The reason is simple, my moolah have better things to do for me. But if you did, tell us about it.

We will have more of the medical tourism facilities here in the future.

Why a guide about Subic's places?

I've browsed so many sites in the web, googled away for hours to find a blog or a site about the facilities in Subic Bay and Olongapo.

Naddah, ziltch, zero. Nothing but promotions and gimmicks, that are just that, gimmicks.

So this is an attempt to do a fair and unadultarated review.

To make it legit and credible, I've spent my moolah, however limited it is.

Let the journey begin.
