Thank you for all the lovely email responses and comments given on my blog, facebook and twitter. The recipe can be found on Wonder Chef’s Fan Page. For those who do not have a Facebook account and not able to access the recipe, you can substitute the usual Mascarpone Cheese 500g with 3 packets of Tofu. Yes, it is that simple :)
A Japanese software industry body has decided to ban computer games in which players simulate sexual violence against females.
The industry move came after a Japanese computer game maker attracted furious protests from US rights campaigners against the game “RapeLay”, which lets players simulate stalking and raping young girls.
In the game players earn points for acts of sexual violence, including following girls on commuter trains, raping virgins and their mothers, and then forcing them to have abortions.
What the hell?!
