I’ve read so many news articles, accounts and blogs on the “Made in China with Melamine” case. I’ve even received a few emails detailing what other products out there are being checked for melamine contamination. I have to read labels of food products I regularly buy, just in case. But what about those using raw materials which could be contaminated? The labels do not inform us where the raw materials come from. What if? It gave me more shivers especially yesterday when a friend wrote in her Cogito ergo, scrap! blog about her experience when her kids had some stomach problems after eating some biscuits. It’s frightening that things could happen right there at our doorsteps. Just because some unscrupulous businesses are so greedy. They do not know the repercussions of their actions on the innocent. Let’s be vigilant and be aware of what we take in all the time.

I read this from Jesi’s multiply (Ministry of Mindful Thoughts). It’s so funny and shows how Pinoys are full of sense of humor and creativity. I could not understand a couple of them though (I need time to process or digest them first ha ha ha). Do you think only Pinoys can understand this? I will let Key read this and see if he can get it. Maybe I will also let my colleagues from other countries read this and see what their opinions are.
