Boracay makes world headlines for the video scandal filmed by ABS-CBN on New Year's Day

Boracay Island in the Philippines is now making world headlines, sadly not because of its beauty, but of the video scandal involving foreign tourists.

The said video scandal in the island of Boracay was filmed by ABS-CBN's TV Patrol and according to the news report, it happened at 2 AM on January 1, 2011.

ABS-CBN's own camera caught some foreign tourists doing scandalous acts on the shores of Boracay.

Showbiz reporter Gretchen Fullido who saw the incident herself was the one who reported it on TV and she even interviewed actress-host Ruffa Gutierrez giving her own reaction about the video scandal.

Ruffa and her family were also there vacationing, but she herself didn't see it on the spot.

It puzzles me why Gretchen only interviewed Ruffa and not those other tourists who actually saw it real and are really scandalized by what happened.

I highly doubt if TV Patrol crew really saw it happening by chance. Or could it be, they intentionally waited for it to happen and had it documented?

Even TV Patrol anchor Ted Failon also wondered about it. "Ano naman ang ginagawa ng ating mga crew sa alas dos nang madaling araw?"

Malay, Aklan Mayor John Yap is now planning to impose a "No S-x on the Beach" rule in Boracay island.

And now, news agency Agence France-Presse (AFP) is reporting it internationally and has been picked up by various news sites from around the globe.

It's funny because Ruffa Gutierrez is also part of the international reports.

The video scandal in Boracay making worldwide headlines is actually good because it warns the tourists not to have s-x on the beach of Boracay or in any beaches from a conservative country like the Philippines.

But definitely, it will affect the number of tourists because some probably are now afraid that it might also happened to them, being filmed at 2AM while doing their own business.

I think some Pinoys love to do that too. (Sino aamin?)

That s-x on the beach thing happens anywhere, not only in Boracay, and it was just unlucky that ABS-CBN caught it and it involved foreigners, that's why it has become a big issue (when in fact, it shouldn't be).
