Sandara Park Celebrated Philippine Independence Day in Korea!
Sandara Park has always been vocal about her love for the Philippines and she proved it once again when she celebrated the 119th Philippine Independence Day in Seoul, South Korea's Han River. Dara is the Friendship Ambassador of the Philippines to Korea and she delivered a heartfelt speech to the (mostly) Filipinos in attendance. "Parang first time ko yata makasama ng ganito karaming Pinoy sa Korea!" In her speech, she shared that the Philippines is her second home and that she's received so much love from Pinoys. "Mahal na mahal ko po ang Pilipinas," she said. She also shared that her favorite vacation spots are beaches like Boracay, Palawan, Bohol, and Subic as well as her favorite dishes: sisig, pinakbet, and her favorite, sinigang na hipon. Aww, we love you back, Dara! (via ilovekstars.com)
Fans of Lee Sung Kyung recently discovered pics of their idol pre-Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo fame and were surprised to know that the actress had monolids then. Her pictures now show she has double eyelids, which got them thinking if she's had cosmetic surgery done. Not that they cared, really. If anything, the pictures only proved how much they love her and how loyal they are to their idol. You're pretty inside and out, monolid or not, Biblee! (via ilovekstars.com)
How does a "Bad Liar" film—not music video—sound to you? We ask because there just might be a sliver of hope for that. Selena Gomez recently took to Instagram and posted a "Bad Liar" movie poster—a legit-looking poster with credits and a real director—and not just once but thrice! "Bad Liar" already has a music video available on Spotify (albeit exclusively), so it can't be a teaser for her new MV, right? Right?! Whatever it is, we're still here for it. But drop it already, Sel! (via teenvogue.com)
It's moments like this that make us believe that a 1D reunion is possible again! Liam Payne applauded Niall Horan's performance at the One Love Manchester benefit concert and we're screaming internally. "It's great to see him. He's different with his different hair. I haven't seen him in a while but I've watched his progression and how he's doing at the moment. I watched him play at the Ariana gig which I thought was an amazing thing everyone did. Hats off to him, it was such an important cause as well," he said at the Capital FM Summertime Ball. As if that wasn't enough, Liam also posted a throwback pic of him and the lads from the same event. D'aww! Reunion soon, please! (via dolly.com.au)
It looks like we'll be seeing more of Sue Ramirez in the coming months as she'll be playing Kathryn Bernardo's ate in their new show, La Luna Sangre. "Kakaiba siya dahil sa Pangako Sa'yo partido ako ni Daniel, ngayon kay Kathryn naman ako at hindi ako third party dito. Magiging ate ako ni Kathryn at kami 'yung mag-aalaga sa kanya and make sure na safe siya," she shared. When she was asked about what she found the most challenging about her role, she said, "medyo mature ['yung role ko], mas matanda 'yung role ko sa totoong edad ko. Siguro iyon 'yung challenge don." We're so excited for this and happy for you, Sue! (via push.abs-cbn.com)

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
