    With the intent to enhance and beautify themselves, they decided to undergo treatment from a person whom they barely know. The procedure went by injecting some unknown chemicals unto their faces. However instead of having better and beautiful faces, it went really worse and appeared distorted. The three of them have the same reaction with the chemical.

    With the help of their friends and families, they are now trying to reach a certain amount in order to help the victims. Aside from the horrible outcome of what happened, the victims are now starting to become ill and are all afraid of what could happen to them if not given the proper care.


    Unfortunately, the suspect is now nowhere to be found. The victims were not even aware of the suspect’s whereabouts.


    According to the one who posted, a certain media will then cover the story of these women, to inform and especially warn those who would dare to undergo such procedure. The suspect was not a licensed medical professional but because of cheaper rates he managed to convince these ladies to try it all for the aim of becoming beautiful.

    The search of entertainment is already innate for a person. Most of the time people turn to games, books, and movies and may more to be entertained. With the help of the internet one can have a pool of choices for entertainment. Nowadays most of the people would prefer to watch movies or series at home rather than going out. It is much more convenient and you can even save more and feel really comfortable. One of the things that Filipinos nowadays enjoy doing is watching K-Dramas or Korean Dramas, but why?

korean drama


    Filipinos seemed not to care about language barrier at all. As expected, Koreans are using their own native language on their films and Filipinos would then rely for English subtitles to be able to understand it. It actually appears tiring yet there are lots of self-confessed K-Drama fans after all. It’s a bit confusing but any Filipino K-Drama fan will give you some of these reasons why they are so hooked with it.

korean drama


1.    Unique Stories – maybe because Filipinos became tired of watching the same stories over and over again and that k-dramas became a really good alternative for it. In all fairness to the Korean Movie Industry, they are quite bold, experimental and they always dare to create something new for their viewers. 
2.    Few Number of Episodes – K-dramas usually have 16 to 18 episodes per series. This is roughly 3-6 months of airing time regardless of its rating. If you are going to compare it in the Philippines, as long as a particular soap opera is gaining high rating, producers and directors will somehow find ways on how to lengthen the story, like adding new characters having the same purpose of those who have been killed or a new lover etc. 
3.    Cinematography – Koreans really invest when it comes to production of movies and talents. They have high standards in making a story as ideal as it could be.
4.    Plenty of great actors and actresses – the thing about Korean drama couples is that they hardly get paired to each other for another project. The producers and directors would always prefer to match new talents with one another. This strategy is quite effective though because it thrills the fans. It allows the actors to prove their individual charisma and talents instead of mainly relying on love teams to gain fandom.
5.    The Korean Beauty – the difference when it comes to physical appearance have a great impact when it comes to movies. Although Koreans and Filipinos belong to Asia, the difference in terms of beauty is what makes Filipinos fond of Koreans. Koreans have a soft kind of beauty, a beauty that’s too welcoming and endearing to watch. 

    People would really want to watch prank videos because it shows the unscripted and natural responses of individuals who were put in a trap. Although it may appear unjust to the subject or the target it shows how biased one person could be to another. It is so satisfying to watch videos that slaps out the truth about judgmental people.  It feels so great to prove them wrong of their judgment and admit defeat afterwards.


    One of the most remarkable prank videos that became internet’s favorite is.  The girl is actually a professional racer. Because of her physique nobody would ever think that she is a racer, thus she is the perfect girl for this job. In the video she appears to be a car dealer assigned in big cars such. It was absolutely a mismatch for her size which made her customers felt a bit superior to her.
    When she asked her clients to test drive the cars it wasn’t just an ordinary drive and some of them have lost it until the end of the video.

    Truly, one should never judge a book by its cover. 


    The girl who appeared in the video is actually Leona Chin. She is a Malaysian national and has been part of the racing industry for more than 10 years now. She was already popular as a female racer but she became more popular and even famous all throughout the world because of her participation in prank videos as a dumb sales girl. According to her interview she started to become really interested with cars, particularly in drifting since she was in high school. In order fulfill her wish to try drifting, she asked a friend who happens to be a professional drifter to teach her how to do it. Later on she was able to learn the techniques of drifting and endurance racing. She even said that she goes to watch racing competitions for her to gain insights on how it should be done.

    In no time she was able to have a team of her own and participate in endurance racings in Malaysia. She became really famous because of her mad driving skills and she was considered to be the fastest among all female racers of her time. Leona Chin still dreams to compete internationally with the help of her fans and sponsors.

    Who would ever forget the day when a very unique kind of anime has been released to the public? People were greatly influenced with the freshness of the story’s plot and story. A live action movie has been made for the movie, however unlike its manga and anime version, the live action movie was not able to satisfy the audiences’ expectation. After almost three years of waiting, finally people now have glimpse of the second season.
The trailer for the second season was released last February 9, 2017.     Although the manga is already far from its anime version, a lot of people are still looking forward and waiting for the release of the second season. The trailer has thrilled everyone and it has been shared for more than a hundred times from different users. 

shingeki no kyogin


    Despite the high rating given to this anime, people are a bit disappointed for its very slow update. However, the amazing thing is, the story is actually the first story ever published by the author. This is the main reason why it seems to be very fresh in terms of idea and representation. If you are looking for something new and something different then this anime is for you. 

shingeki no kyogin


    The reason why it seemed so different from the rest of the anime is that it is not about the usual things such as love, friendship, hope, revenge, and power. Although it still contains the following elements, but the focus of the story is mainly on how humanity can survive in a very disadvantage spot. When I say disadvantage, the difference it terms of power, number and ability is at stake. How are they going to fight the Titans or the giants using their equipment alone? Not to mention the mystery as to where these Titans came from and who made them and for what purpose do they serve? 

shingeki no kyogin


    Few episodes have been already released for the second season and it has absolutely impressed its viewers. It just keeps on getting better every single episode. If you haven’t watched this anime series yet, then you should start now. There are 25 episodes per season. A single episode is just 20 minutes long. So it’s absolutely shorter compared to the usual. You are even luckier if you will just start watching it at this point because you don’t have to wait for almost two years for you to watch its season 2. 
 

    Nowadays social influence became really stronger through the use of social media. One of the best examples of this is when a particular show or movie has been repeatedly shared and liked by your social media friends and thus you became interested about it even though it is not actually the type of movies that you would like to watch. You tried it because it became viral and made several rounds over Facebook or Twitter. 

13 reasons why


    If you are reading this, you should probably fall on either of these two reasons. First you often see your friends watching this show and you got really curious about it but not that totally convinced to try, so you keep on searching for reasons. Second, you are probably done watching this series and you got disappointed or somewhat you disgusted and you want to share the same sentiments as to why you should have not watched this show. 
So let me enumerate the reasons why.

suicide


    Suicide is a very sensitive topic yet it has been justified lightly by Hannah’s experience with her classmates and other friends. It is as if you can never feel bad or despise a person why he or she decided to take away his or her life and thus those people who made Hannah felt that way should succumb to their guilt or better yet commit suicide as well. In such manner, this series seemed to promote suicide rather than avoid it.

    There are indeed lapses and mistakes made by the people around Hannah which was deliberately portrayed, such as her peers, classmates, significant others, parents and even teachers. However blaming these people is just one side of the story. The other side, which the lead role failed to fulfill, is one of the major reasons of her untimely death. It has been repeatedly discussed that the other actors were wrong in blaming her because of her decision. And that Hannah shouldn’t be blamed about it. But to make things straight, who among these people decided to give up? Did Hannah realize that these people were also going through something? The thing is, the creator of this story allowed Hannah to die which is a sort of encouragement or a positive regard to commit suicide.

    The social responsibility of making suicide as a topic must be taken with caution. Remember the incident wherein two students tried to perform the things they saw in the movie Fifty Shades of Gray and end up being dead? Now think of Hannah’s story and come to think of it? How many innocent minds can be corrupted with this idea? The story has been dramatized mainly to attract viewers and not to make a positive impact to the society.

suicide

 
    This movie is extremely relevant to its viewers because its setting is a common social issue such as puberty, peer pressure, substance abuse, drugs, rape, and lastly bullying. Bullying is very much significant because at a certain point in your life you will experience both, being the bully and being bullied. It could have been great grounds to handle the issue of suicide because of its relevance; however this series just failed to give a progressive impact to its viewers which will make you disgust it even more.

    If there are things that remained pleasing to the eyes of the people particularly the women, one of these is make-up or cosmetics. Men could even question a lot or almost all of women why they would really want to have a set of make up at home or why do they keep a make-up kit inside their bags at all times? Men often wondered why it appears like women are so delighted with cosmetic and are even confused why they men on the other hand have little or no interest at all when it comes to make up.     If there is someone or something to blame about the differences of perception of men and women towards make-up it is none other than the society’s standards. Women were raised to become attractive. They were conditioned that in order for other people to like them they must always be beautiful, attractive and appealing. They need to observe proper grooming at all times, smell good and do what is likable to others. Meanwhile men were simply raised not to bother about their physical attributes. They were conditioned to become more concern on their skills, their strength and other things that could contribute to them becoming manly enough.     With this regard, and the changing demands and standards of the society when it comes to beauty, women are trying their very best to look appealing and lovable like what they were taught about. With women’s quest to acquire an irresistible kind of beauty, they discovered make-up. Not all women were born with to have the qualities that the society declares to be ideal and beautiful. There are also some women who are exposed to certain things which made a huge effect on their physical traits.      The thing about make-up and beauty is that when it seems appealing to the eyes of most of the people or to the society then it is good and acceptable. There is nothing wrong about choosing cosmetics and enhancing one’s beauty, however the question on how it started and why most women are into it is all because of the society. Almost all people want to look good. Nobody wants to look like a joker or something inappropriate. Looking good is already embedded inside the heads of the people. It is something you cannot just ignore. But it should not also keep you from loving yourself more of who you are and what you are.  
    Financial stability is something that you will encounter when you start working and earning money. Actually you need to face it whether you are employed or not. It is something that you can’t escape. However the earlier you try to handle it the better. If you are already earning it is best to save something out of your daily salary regardless of how small it is. It is always best to think of the future and be prepared for any emergencies. However saving money is not the only way to become financially stable. There are a lot of ways on how you can make use of your money and investment is just one of these.     Sometimes it’s a bit hard to invest your money in banks with their investment programs because of the huge minimum amount that they require. Investing your money in a business can be a bit risky as well especially if you don’t have any knowledge or experience in running a business. But leaving your money in your savings account isn’t a good idea as well. One of the best ways to make use of your money without the risk of losing it is investment in things such as jewelries.      The good thing jewelries is that you can eventually use it in times of emergency by having it pawned. You can get cash from it but you still have the chance to get it back. It is handy and you can even wear them. Also, the market price or the value of jewelries do not entirely depreciate. In history, the price of gold constantly goes up through the years. It is like a real estate investment. It doesn’t depreciate, rather its value increases as time pass by.     However it is important to choose the type of jewelry that you wish to buy or invest your money with. Go for small pieces in a number of quantity. Do not invest all of your money on a very expensive piece because you will then find it difficult to get it back once it has been pawned. Also the value you can get will largely depend on the pawnshop. Pawnshops have different appraisal values and interests. Make sure to choose the one suitable to your current financial capability.   
            The controversial case of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 has made terrible rounds in the internet all over the world. There were series of articles published about how this device made a huge threat on every person’s life. Although it may sound too much, but it is indeed true. The best example is the protocol being followed by airline companies. All passengers and crews are prohibited to charge their galaxy note 7 while on board. It is the first time that such protocol has been issued to ensure the safety of all passengers. This is how serious the case is.           Three months from its first launching, what happened to this very controversial device? A wide recall has been issued after it has been proved that these devices actually overheat and has a great tendency to explode. Recall on galaxy note 7 devices first took place in US. According to Samsung they are trying their best to provide and replace recalled devices as soon as possible. However after the recall there are still complains that the replaced units are still prone to overheat. There were incidents noted on this matter. One of the latest incidents is when a Southwest Airline was forced to go back barely ten minutes after its flight when a passenger’s device, a galaxy note 7 started to produce smoke and overheated. Passengers were then evacuated from the airline as part of their safety protocol.           Samsung however, did not give any official statement regarding this issue. According to them they must first see and examine those replaced devices and check it for themselves if it really exploded because of its batteries or the device mainly. They are also willing to offer their customers to replace their Galaxy Note 7 with other devices such as Samsung Galaxy S7.            Although Samsung has already issued recall on their galaxy note 7, there is no definite statement yet that these devices are safe for using. It is such dismay for every note lover because it has been one of the most anticipated devices of the note series. With this alone, it is as if galaxy note 7 is suffering from a very slow and painful death. Who would want to purchase this device if this can actually put your life in danger? No one would ever dare to risk for this device unless Samsung could finally clear this issue. It is quite surprising that when Samsung managed to become one of the best makers of smart phones, it is now that they experienced great distress.                                   It is very unfortunate especially for those who experienced physical injuries from using this device. It is such a huge thing how come Samsung never had the chance to check on their products before releasing it to the public. How come up to this moment, even replaced devices are still prone to overheating? Unfortunately, these are questions that only Samsung could answer.  
    In order to stay healthy and fully functional it is important for everybody to achieve a healthy lifestyle by having a proper diet and daily exercise. Moreover to promote wellness, proper hygiene must be practiced as well. Aside from taking baths regularly it is good to pay attention on specific areas of the body that require due attention and a special kind of care such as the underarms.     There have been debates whether to remove or shave the hair under the arms or to just let it propagate. Body odor is often recognized and being blamed to the underarms. There is a special thing about the armpit that it produces a distinct kind of smell. The smell can be considered as pheromones or the natural odor produced by the body to attract potential partners. However, unlike animals, humans no longer need to rely on pheromones to get a prospective partner. Humans do communicate but body odor can prevent it from happening because nobody likes to stay with someone with a stinky smell from their underarms.      Commonly, women ought to shave their underarms because it doesn’t really look great to have an armpit full of bushes. It appears less feminine and a bit messy for women. For women, the more smooth and silky your skin is the better. Meanwhile men are not being pressured to remove or shave their underarm hair at all. For them it adds up to being masculine which could fall on the same category with having mustaches or beards.      However if you are concern in maintaining a healthy and proper hygiene, it is best to remove those unnecessary hair regardless of your gender. Two of the primary function of the underarm hair includes: (1) to lessen the friction of the skin in between your underarms. (2) To serve as reagent in producing pheromones. As mentioned earlier you don’t need to produce pheromones at all and there is no evidence that would support the claim that shaved underarms can cause injury to the skin due to friction.      It is important to get rid of those hairs because if you keep them, it becomes a perfect place for bacteria and other body odor causing germs to multiply. Just imagine how gross it is to have a breeding area for bacteria and other germs in your body. A well shaved underarm is much easier to clean and maintain. If you are using deodorant, it can penetrate well to your skin even by using small amounts only. The substance can be absorbed by the skin immediately. An unshaved underarm would usually become sweatier and wet compared to the shaved ones, because it takes time before the hair dries up from your sweat. If you don’t have hair in your armpit then your sweat will just evaporate in no time.      There are several ways to get rid of those unwanted underarm hairs such as waxing, plucking and the less painful yet most effective, the use of laser. 
    Nowadays it has been so common to buy stuff online. Online shopping has even become more prominent nowadays because of the convenience that it can offer. You can shop from different parts of the country without even going out. It becomes even more convenient knowing that you will just have to browse it online. Another reason also is because online items are somewhat cheaper than those sold in malls, online sellers would claim that it is because they don’t have to pay for a space at all. The only scary thing about it is its authenticity. How sure are you that you are buying authentic good on your first purchase?     Have you ever encountered products being sold online? They are remarkably intriguing because of super low prices. Sellers would often claim that these products came from large manufacturing companies and that the products have minimal packaging defects and were not able to pass the quality control assessment. These products are often used at home and some are even necessities. You can find shampoos, lotion, bath soap, baby powder and many more. Take note that these products are not brand less or those that don’t have packing stickers. In fact these products are known brands which is why it is quite hard to check its authenticity.     The best way to validate whether a product is fake or not is by analyzing its price. If it is 50% - 80% less than the regular price then it should alarm you already. You might also wish to ask whether they are legit company distributors. If they will just tell you that they got their supplies from certain supplier then it’s time to change your mind. Most of the time products delivered by a distributor came from a single company with various products. If the seller is selling different products with different brands then it is another warning signal you should never ignore.     You might be thinking of the money you can by buying these products online. However you are actually risking your health and even your family. Since it is hard to validate if the product is real, think of what chemicals it contains. Chemical products can potentially cause cancer and even poisoning. In a way your future medical bills will surely make you regret buying fake grocery products online.

    When you don’t have sweet tooth it is hard to find snacks that can match your low tolerance for sugar. Almost all snacks were made out of sugar, chocolates and other forms of sweeteners. It is the main reason why Skittles stands out from the rest of the group. It is a sweet yet sour candy that comes in a bright rainbow colors. But all of a sudden Skittles became really dull and lost all that rainbow colors.     In an official stamen made by Skittles, they decided to have a different packaging for intended for the entire month of June. As practiced June is the month dedicated for the LGBT community. The LGBT community has the rainbow to represent them because they acknowledged that they are composed of different genders thus constitutes not just a single color but of different colors.      Since the Skittles and the LGBT community share the same kind of color representation, Skittles gladly gave way to the LGBT community. According to them, although the share the same symbol, one has to stand out and celebrate their existence and they give it whole heartedly to the LGBT group.      This is such a remarkable and thoughtful move for Skittles. Although they were branded and known because of their color, they were not afraid to give way to celebrate a significant event for some people. Consumers in return have shown appreciation to what the company did. Their customers admired their sensitive and immediate decision to honor the LGBT community.     Changing brand packaging is a bit risky when it comes to sales and market. Well known and established companies see to it that when they have to change or modify their packaging it needs to be somehow close to the previous design. It is because people shop out of familiarity. When you change your packaging into a totally different concept, chances are your consumers will not be able to recognize your products anymore.      However it is different with the case of Skittles. They dared to risk their sales and their brand in order to commemorate an event. With this making rounds in the internet, Skittles is rest assured that their customers would still remain loyal to them.
