Previous Shipmate of the Month




(Dedicated to every PMMA'ers Girlfriend)

If you’re well-dressed, she thinks you’re a playboy
If you’re not, she thinks you’re rugged
If you kiss her, you’re not a gentleman
If you don’t, you’re not a man

If you praise her, she thinks you’re lying
If you don’t, you’re good as nothing
If you agree with her likes, she is abusing
If you don’t, you’re not understanding

If you make romance, you’re an “experienced man”
If you don’t, you’re half a man
If you visit her, she claims it boring
If you don’t, she accuses you of double-crossing

If you propose love with brief acquaintances, you’re a fresh guy
If you postponed it later, she wonders why
If you fail to assist her in crossing the street, you’re lack of ethics
If you do, she thinks “it’s just one of man’s tactics”

If you visit another, she accuses you’re being a two timer
If she is visited by another, it’s natural for a girl
If you’re a minute late, she complains it’s hard to wait
If you came on time “for hours”, she makes you wait

If your jealous, she admonishes it’s bad
If you’re not, she doubts your love and not be glad
If you kiss her often, you’re abusing
If you kiss her once in a while, she professes your cold as nothing

If you attempt for romance, she says you don’t respect her
If you don’t, she thinks you don’t like her
If you listen, she wants you to talk
If you talk, she wants you to listen

If you contradict her, she does not like it
If you don’t, she thinks you’re gullible
Oh Woman! Thou art so simple, yet so complex to understand
So confusing yet so desirable

Tanker leaks oil after attack off Yemen

Tanker leaks oil after attack off Yemen

Monday, April 21, 2008
TOKYO — A suspected pirate ship fired on a Japanese oil tanker today off the eastern coast of Yemen, leaving a hole from which hundreds of gallons of fuel leaked, officials said. No one was injured.

The 150,000-ton tanker Takayama ( with 3/off Rodcyn Yumang) was attacked about 270 miles off the coast of Aden in southwestern Yemen while it was heading for Saudi Arabia, its Japanese operator, Nippon Yusen K.K., said in a statement.

None of its 23 crew members — seven Japanese and 16 Filipinos — were injured, the company said. The vessel left the South Korean port of Ulsan on April 4.

She said the tanker was heading to Aden for repairs, and its itinerary could change depending on the extent of the damage.

Transportation Ministry official Yoichi Oda said the attackers were believed to be pirates whose motive was not immediately known. The waters in the Gulf of Aden between Yemen and Somalia are considered prone to pirate attacks.

In late October, a Panamanian-registered chemical tanker operated by a Japanese shipping company was seized by pirates in nearby waters off Somalia's coast. All but one of its 23 crew members were freed unharmed in mid-December.

More than 260 vessels, including 10 Japanese ships, were attacked by pirates last year worldwide, Oda said, quoting International Maritime Bureau figures. Nearly 40 percent of the pirate attacks occurred off the coasts of Somalia, Nigeria and Yemen, where the number of incidents surged from the previous year.

Kyodo News agency said the tanker was hit by a rocket fired from a small boat.
