    Due to its distinct color and possible breakthrough in the feline world, people from far countries travelled to Bulgaria just to take a closer peek and even take some pictures of it. However, this cat’s stardom started to fade when rainstorms came. Its bright emerald green color slowly faded away when rain started to fall. 


    It has been found out that the cat got its color from a barrel of paint where it sleeps. Although paints contain toxins that are eventually not good for the health, the cat was actually in good shape all throughout its stardom. With its color fading away, its popularity indeed started to slow down, however its quite noticeable she enjoyed her moment and made the most of it by gaining extra pounds.

    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.

    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. 
 

    If you are reading this then you are most likely a middle child who is looking for confirmation that you really feel special because of your controversial birth order. Although less attention is given to middle children during child rearing, middle children became an interesting target for research because of their complicated situation. Children who were born on such order have great qualities especially when it comes to coping and socialization. But what are the most common traits that makes up a middle child?
Here is the list:


1.  

middle child syndrome

 A part of you will always feel that nobody cares about you – it is the most fundamental feeling that the middle children share. It starts when you just don’t know who or what you should be. The parents are busy making your older sibling responsible and at the same time they are busy looking after and enjoying your younger sibling. 


2.    You were used to being alone but you are not even sad about it – although not all middle children are introverts, there is a strong force that pushes a middle child to enjoy a moment of himself or herself to meditate or to think of plans especially when a decision has to be made. 

3.    

middle child problem

You talk to yourself vocally – although it wasn’t intentional, most middle kids were not given the chance to voice out their opinion because it is the job of the older sibling and such decisions are actually made for the benefit of the youngest child. In a way, middle children have been used to voice out their thoughts to their selves alone. They do it because they actually value listening to opinion since they weren’t given that chance when they were young.

4.  

middle child problem

 

You always think that you are not your parents’ favorite – parental biases will always take place no matter how many times parents say that they don’t have favoritism among their children. Meanwhile, the middles would voluntarily take the place of not being the favorite child or the less appreciated one because they have been used to sacrifice  ever since they became a middle child.

5.    It always comes to you to consider other people’s feelings before you make any decision – although this may sound too kind this is actually true for almost all middle kids. Since they were used to get caught in the middle they learned how it feels to be on top of someone and at the same time find themselves in the bottom. 

6.    

middle child problem

You feel a bit distant and secretive to your own family – this is a thing that only middle children could understand. It may sound rebellious but it is not. Since they were used being left behind or that their opinions don’t really matter at all, they become cautious in opening up or trusting a family member.   
 

    Birth order has been known to have a significant influence on a person’s personality. In fact a prominent and well known psychologist coined the theory about birth order. It was Alfred Adler’s work that lead other psychologists to consider how such event can partly affect and help in predicting a person’s overall personality.


    In his theory of birth order however, a specific position have shown great crisis in terms of dealing with the demands of that particular order. The middle child is considered to be someone who is in between the eldest and the youngest child being born. The middle child has an elder sibling to compete with in terms of achievement and trust from parents, as well as control over the other siblings. At the same time the middle child needs to face the unfortunate reality that although he or she had enjoyed a moment of being the youngest it did not last long prior to the birth of a sibling. Now the youngest child enjoys all the attention and care that was supposedly given to the middle child.

middle child syndrome


    It is quite a difficult task to stay on the middle. The eldest becomes busy with responsibilities entrusted by the parents, thus the eldest won’t mind not being their parents’ favorite because he or she was given a task or responsibility that needs to be fulfilled. In a way, the eldest child feels empowerment and develops control over his or her younger siblings. As a result, a middle child develop unique character traits in order to cope with the crisis of being caught in the middle. Commonly, they become secretive in nature. They naturally have high trust issues. The always strive to please everybody so that they can be noticed by their parents. 

middle child syndrome


    By staying in the middle, the child becomes a good mediator. After all it is an advantage to be on the both sides. It is like being the best of both worlds. The term middle child syndrome was a sort of adaptation to the crisis that child who falls under that particular order has to face. It’s considered a syndrome for some because most of the time middle kids have the same sentiments with one another. 


    Although Alfred Adler’s theory were postulated years ago it is still present up to this point. Certain modern psychologists have adopted his concept of birth order and how it pays a crucial role in the development of one’s personality.
 

    The primary instincts of humans is to survive. However aside from the goal of surviving humans are also born to appreciate art. Although art may seem not a necessity because a human being can survive without it, art is something that makes a person able to survive while staying sane. Art is not limited to paintings or drawings, music is considered as an art and even language. Humans are born to be artistic creatures and it is exciting to know that art is limitless and it can never be stopped. It is immortal and it will always be. One of the ultimate representation of art is having a tattoo. But is tattoo a form or art and expression or it is just a form of style?

getting inked


    Getting inked isn’t simple as it seems. Your body will become the perfect canvas for this art, thus it is important to carefully think about your purpose and the design that you wished to have. Also the pain while getting inked is not a joke. And, tattoo artists need to be very precise when they are doing their job. It is why tattoo artists deserve such high respect among other artists. 

tattoo artists


    While many people could not understand why some would want to “stain” their bodies like they always think of, having a tattoo constitute to something deeper than just a fashion statement. It is quite hard to be judged once you have tattoos in your body. The society has this idea that once you have one in your body you are either an ex-convict, drug addict, a member of a gang, a prostitute and so much more. People with tattoos were even branded not to have good jobs. Tattoos are often objectified as a good for nothing art. 

getting inked


    Having a tattoo is not equivalent to committing a crime but some people don’t make any distinction to it. People should then realize that art can take different forms, if they learned to appreciate music then tattoos deserve that chance too. 


    People who would want to get inked are ordinary people with bigger appreciation for art. They are the ones who are not afraid to be judged by other people. They are not ashamed of expressing who they are and they are proud of having it inked on their bodies. Having a tattoo does not mean you are destroying your body. How come it become destructive when it is in fact what your heart desires? 
 

    There are several ways to determine a person’s capability. A person can be judged through educational attainment, amount of salary or savings that that person has and many more. But a person’s personality is something which makes that particular person different from any other. In general personality is the overall qualities of a person. It includes his or her coping mechanisms, attitude to a particular situation, beliefs, aspiration, his or her character and even temperament. But how does a person’s personality develop? Is it something inborn, or is personality made? According to Psychology there are several things that can affect and are responsible in shaping a person’s personality such as birth order. 
    The relevance of birth order to personality was first proposed by Alfred Adler. According to him, birth order determines or guides a person’s personality because of a made up expectation to a child even before he or she learns to behave on things. Children are already expected to behave into a particular list things because it has been the norm of the society.

birth order


    The birth order theory includes the first born, second born, middle, and the last born or as the only child. According to Adler the following are the shaped personalities according to birth order:

    First Born – Tends to become achievers, controlling, and reliable, independent, perfectionist, structured and cautious. These traits are often associated with child rearing, since the first born are always entrusted or tasked to look after their younger siblings. And as the first born grows older, it will play a huge part in the development of personality.
    Middle Child – We often hear about middle child syndrome which describes the crisis of being in between an older and a younger sibling. The birth order triggers the middle child to feel less wanted because the first born is entrusted with the responsibility and then the youngest becomes the favorite. Middle children tend to become secretive, short tempered, and prone to become rebellious but are good when it comes to socializing with other people. 
    Youngest – The youngest child in the family is considered to be the favorite of all. Although parents would try to give equal treatment to their children, it is the youngest child who will get all the attention and care. With the abundance of love and attention the youngest kids can become manipulative, self-centered, dependent, attention seeker but at the same time they are outgoing, they are good in dealing emotions and are often relaxed. 

    When you reach the age of 25 it is quite normal to feel a bit old and that you will realize that you are no longer young and the pressure of aging is slowly sinking into your mind. Although being in your late 20’s is still far from being really old, it is the time of fast transition. You graduated from college and then you start to work. It is a period of adjustment that you just can’t say no. Whether you like or not you have to face and embrace responsibilities and even stress. Stress is such a big deal especially if it is making you look older than your actual age. However there are some people who are so good in dealing stress and they don’t seem to age at all. Here are some of the things that could make you look younger.


1.

Get enough sleep – it is important for yourself to have enough sleep. It is your body’s way of recharging your system. The more you skip sleep the more untidy you look and that will surely make you look old.

Refrain from smoking – thousands of medical research have been already made proving that smoking is not good for your health. Aside from the threat of cancer, it can make a person look old because it contains chemicals that can actually damage healthy cells. It has direct effect on your lips and teeth because it can turn them dark or black which is really ugly.

Summer is just right around the corner. And with the sun higher and brighter than before, it’s no wonder people are dying to dye their hair anew and let it shine in the limelight, I mean, sunlight. For this season, the general tip is to aim for warm, natural looking and light colors. Here are 4 beautiful hair colors and styles that are surefire ways to make you turn heads this summer 2017: 1.    Bronde Balayage Coming from the French word, “to sweep”, the Balayage is also known as the freehand technique as it doesn’t use foil. The end result is a randomly highlighted hair with a natural-looking effect. With the combination of brown and blonde, bronde perfectly matches this look and shows off the fun warm aura of the season giving you a more casual beach-ready finish.   2.    Caramel Brunette Ombre If you’re a natural brunette, do your hair in an ombre style and try giving it either hints of caramel or highlighting your hair through. Ombre literally means “shaded” in French and would employ the use of foils, but the results are breathtaking. Be it curly or straight, the growing blend of caramel highlights would give you a vibrant chic and warm look.   3.    Chocolate and Cinnamon Brown Sombre If you’re looking for that right balance of subtle and allure in a style, look no further. The Sombre style is basically the Ombre but with a softer glow and the colors almost seamlessly melting together. The closer you stick to your natural hair color, the more casual and mature it looks. The change in hair color is not as shocking like the Ombre, but very subtle… With its dark roots, gradually growing brighter and lighter at the tips, the Sombre style is enough to give you a mysterious and adventurous aura: perfect for the best midsummer night dream of your life.   4.    Blonde Mermaid Waves In long tresses, mermaid waves could let you have that dreamy far-away look. Not only is this style gorgeous, but it’s quite easy to keep since you don’t have to worry much if your hair gets messed up by the wind. With blonde colors, you’re sure to shine in the sun and be the next Ariel of summer 2017.  
    In the world of finance, there are two kinds of people: the ants and the grasshoppers. As kids, we’ve grown up hearing this story of the ant and the grasshopper, where the ant works to the bone in summer time just to save for the winter, and the grasshopper just enjoy the summer breeze, hopping and chirping without a care in the world. Come winter time, the grasshopper is left in the cold, dying of hunger, while the ant reaps safety and stability in time of need. This has been a sad tale in our childhood years, yet little did we know the moral of this story could greatly help us in our grownup years.     Like the ant, there are people who are born thrifty and industrious, those who are gifted in the art of saving money. Others, like the grasshopper, may try to save a coin or two, only to succumb moments later when something catches their eye. If we don’t want to have the same fate as the unwise grasshopper, how do we save money effectively enough? Now, no amount of ideas can be the exact method. Each person differs in strategy so just pick the ones below that fit your lifestyle. Here are some basic ideas on how to become a nifty thrifty ant-human: 1.    Write down how much you earn and spend in a period of time (like in a month or week). You know how health-conscious people tend to count the calories they take in everyday and strive to only eat the kind of food that they really need? Same concept applies to your savings. Write down your income and jot down your expenses as well. This way, you get to track down where your money is going. 2.    Small expenses should be treated like big ones too. Don’t underestimate small things; they all start out small, you know. That’s why as much as possible, pick out the things you think you can live without. Learn to weigh the things you consider are important to you and the things you think are unneeded. 3.    Split your expenses into 4 categories. •    Cost of Living – bills for rent, water, electricity •    Everyday Budget – jeep fare, food, etc. •    Wants – new clothes, gadgets, eating out, travel, etc. •    Savings - Lastly, how much you want to save after all that. 4.    Make SMART goals. This could be short-term or long-term: •    Short-term goals could be a new gadget, minor home improvements, vacation, etc. These could last from 1-3 years. •    Long-term goals could be for retirement, a new home, college fees, etc. These are goals good for 4 years and above. 5.    Having a Rainy Day Fund is fun. Set up a rainy day fund (like our ant from that story), by saving at least 3 months’ worth of everyday expenses. Expect the unexpected! Having a backup or reserve is always a good idea. 6.    Get rid of any debts. It can be such a pain if you’re placed in a deadly, I mean, “debtly” situation. As much as possible, stay away from borrowing money, and if you have to, make sure to pay it there and then. The sooner you do away with it, the better and more you can save money. 7.    Pay in cash. Don’t use credit. This way, you’ll avoid #6 altogether. Be sure to have cash-on-hand; cash that you’re willing to spend and won’t hurt your savings.   8.    Don’t do “retail therapy”. Some people, when down on their lumps, resort to comfort eating to ease the emotional strain they’re going through. Other people shop till they drop in order to clear their troubled minds. Don’t be like that. You’re not in the right head to make wise decisions yet and may spend more than you really need. 9.    Do homemade meals more frequently; only seldom eat out. Reuse the leftovers. You can save a whole lot more if you cook at home. Also, don’t waste food. Leftovers can last for days if you’re careful enough. 10.    Don’t buy clothes you don’t normally wear. “I’ve got nothing to wear!” says the girl who has a closet full of clothes… That just means we’re spending more than we really need to. And if you want to be able to put a few more coins, I suggest you buy clothes that are versatile and ones that you would most likely wear a lot. And for your old clothes, you could try selling them, which would mean more money for Mister Piggybank. Yippee!  
Are you ready for the latest trend in the world of plastic surgery? Gone are the days when female celebrities and even common people rooted for Angelina Jolie’s pouty lips. A full and a duck shape lips is no longer what people would like to have right now. Well, what do people expect? A trend is something that changes over time. People gone tired of having the same appearance and now another beauty trend has been launched to the public.      The exact opposite of that pouty and kissable lips comes in which is termed as the lip reduction surgery. This is basically something which people were not ready prepared of. When having a pouty lip became a trend, lots of women complained because only few were gifted to have natural pouty lips. However with this new plastic surgery procedure, it is something beyond the normal size of thin lips.      The goal of this procedure is to create a new lip line by removing or reducing the size of the upper lip so you can have thinner and pouty lips as well. It’s like having a thin body with curves, the new statement of sexy. Sounds painful right? It is indeed painful and patients are even put into local anesthesia in order for them to bear the pain. Although the procedure only takes like 15mins to 30mins to finish, patients are advised to be under a soft diet plan for about a week or so or until the lips are free from swelling. Since it is a surgery, expect to witness sutures which could actually resemble to serial killers’ lips in movies or like the famous Frankenstein. Sutures either dissolved naturally or can be removed manually.      If you are planning to have this lip-reduction surgery you better prepare not only your lips but your pockets as well. Unlike the augmentation process or the ones to achieve fuller lips which are usually done with the help of injectable fillers, lip-reduction surgery is really expensive.  Reduction is now more expensive than augmentation, see the trend? So you better think twice or even thrice before you decide to have this procedure.      In no time several clinics specializing in plastic surgery will offer this in the Philippines, people are then advised to please consult licensed and certified cosmetic surgeons to keep you safe from the possible risk of undergoing a surgical procedure which may put your life in a great risk.   
    The protagonist of the story is Juan Crisostomo Ibarra. 7 years away from Philippines, he returns after studying in Europe. To celebrate his comeback, family friend Captain Tiago throws a party for him. Friars and influential leaders attended. But one of the friars Don Damaso belittled Ibarra on that night.      The following day Ibarra visited Maria Clara, Captain Tiago’s daughter who is also his fiancé. Before Ibarra left though, a Civil Guard, Lieutenant Guevara, revealed to him how Ibarra’s father Don Rafaelo died. Don Rafaelo was accused by Don Damaso as a heretic because he did not attend the Sacraments. Aside from that, there was an incident where Don Rafaelo helped in a fight between a child and tax collector. When the latter died Don Rafaelo was accused and brought to jail where he died of an illness.      Despite all that, Ibarra did not plan on taking revenge. Instead he went on with his and Don Rafelo’s plan to put up a school. They believed that education is the key to success for the country. On the school’s inauguration, a hired killer attempted to kill Ibarra but he was saved by a man named Elias. The same man had warned him of this earlier. The hired killer then met with an accident and got killed.      The next day, Ibarra held a luncheon where Damaso gate-crashed and insulted him and his father. Ibarra ignored him at first but at the slander of his father he could not resist it and he lunged in an attempt to stab Damaso. But he failed and as a result was excommunicated. Damaso also convinced Tiago not to marry his daughter to Ibarra.      Another party was held at the house of Tiago announcing the future wedding of Clara and Linares. Elias used this opportunity to help Ibarra escape the prison. Ibarra sneaked to speak with Maria where he accused her of betraying him by surrendering his letters to the jury. But she explained that she was blackmailed to do so in return for her mother’s letters who she never saw since birth.      In a shootout, Maria Clara had thought that Ibarra was shot and killed. So overcome with sorrow, she went into the nunnery and got admitted by Damaso. Little did she know that it was Elias who got shot.      Christmas Eve came at the time when Elias opened his eyes to see himself wounded fatally wounded. It was his rendezvous with Ibarra. But it was Basilio who came holding his dead mother Sisa. Sisa lost her insanity when she found out that her children (Crispin and Basilio) were being hunted by the sacristan mayor on accusations of theft.      Elias knew of his imminent death and instructed Basilio to burn his and Sisa’s body to ashes. He then told him to dig if no one came and he’ll find gold to support him to school. Before his last breath he advised Basilio to persist in dreams of freedom for the motherland.      As for the epilogue, Tiago turned into an opium addict frequenting the opium house. Maria Clara succeeded in becoming a nun. But the Friar Salvi regularly raped her regularly. And on a stormy night, a beautiful insane lady went on top of the convent and cursed the heavens for what befell her. The lady could not be identified, but rumor has it that it was Maria Clara.
    The word Durian came from an Indonesian word duri which means “thorn”. It is a fruit which belongs to a certain species of a tree called the genus Durio. It is well known in Southeast Asia with the nickname of “the fruit king”. The fruit is noticeable for its bulky size, hard and large thorns covered with husk, and its famous Durian odor. Some Durians are oblong in size but others are round. The husk’s color varies from brown to green. The color of its flesh also vary depending on its species: some are yellow while others are red. The odors emanating from the fruit comes from its flesh which is edible. It is so strong that even when the husk is intact the odor comes out of it. And although some would find it pleasant and fragrant, most people react negatively to it. Because of that the fruit has been banned in some hotels or public transportations in Asia.     The Durian can be eaten in numerous ways, in different stages of its ripeness and is used as an addition to flavors on all kinds of sweets and savory in Asian foods. The seeds have also been found to be edible when it is cooked. The Durian has 30 different species from the genus Durio. But out of the thirty only nine species are considered edible.  Only one of the 9 species called the Durio zibethinus are available in the international market. The other 8 are sold locally in the regions where they are grown.     The trees of the King of the Fruits grow up to fifty metres. It has oblong evergreen leaves and flowers which are clustered in the branches. The usual durian tree takes about 4 to 5 years before it can produce fruits. The fruits then, after pollination takes up to 3 months before it matures.     Durian has been known in southern Asia even in the prehistoric times. But in the western world, the fruit has only been introduced 600 years ago. In the 15th century Europian by the name of Niccolo Da Conti travelled and came to southeast Asia where he discovered the fruit.     The fruit has wide variety of uses in different cuisines from all over Asia. Over the years it has been used to add flavor to ice kakangs, Malay candies, dodols (sweets from Mindanao), biscuits, ice creams and mooncakes. It was also used in cappuccinos. Its flesh can also be dried to make durian chips.     Aside from its edible contributions to food, the Durian also has medicinal and nutritional aids to the society. It has been discovered that the fruit is high in sugar, potassium, Vitamin C, fats, proteins and carbohydrates. The juice extracted from its leaves has also been used as ointments to the head of patients with fevers. The roots can also be boiled in water and drink to stop fevers. It can also be used as poultice, a soft mass applied to irritated or inflamed skin.     The Durian was called as the King of the Fruits because of its tough image and thorns and its overwhelming odor.

Seems like people nowadays are drawn into intriguing stuff more than ever. However accordingly the app works in such a way that the person who has been rated or given feedback has no way of tracing or replying to it. The creator of the app tend to give its users the chance to leave positive comments or feedbacks as an act of kindness while keeping their identity unknown.      However the entire community has been totally shocked (shookt) when it has been revealed that this app is actually unknowingly stealing your personal details such as your contact list.

    In a certain Facebook post by Mark Dianne Duarte, three women are now asking for help from anyone with a good heart to help them with their current situation. The victims are residents of Cabdbaran Agusan del Sur.      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.     
    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.
