If you need a new song for your heartbreaking relationship (or non-relationship!), then this new single from Halsey will give you all the ~*feels*~ you need! She just released the music video, which is also a directorial debut, and we're getting some dystopian feelings from it. Just one concern, though. We want a sequel! (via TeenVogue.com)

Finally, ladies, a solution for our acne struggles is coming! We're seriously crossing our fingers for this acne vaccine that a team of experts from the University of California San Diego is working on. Their lead researcher, Eric C. Huang, said that they finally found a way to do it. "Acne is caused, in part, by P. acnes bacteria that are with you your whole life—and we couldn’t create a vaccine for the bacteria because, in some ways, P. acnes are good for you. But we found an antibody to a toxic protein that P. acnes bacteria secrete on skin—the protein is associated with the inflammation that leads to acne," he said. The vaccine is still for testing in the next two years, but we're already hoping it goes well! (via Allure.com)

Harry Styles is back! After we've spotted his ~*acting skillz*~ in the trailer for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, the One Direction cutie teased fans, releasing what looks like the album cover for his new music Sign of the Times. But well, well, well, it seems like he's really seriouz about this new career path he's taking, because it was announced that Hazza is appearing the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show this Friday. Maybe to promote his new music... or his movie. Either way, we're still excited to have him back!

If, just like us, you were wondering what Janella Salvador's mom, Jenine Desiderio's cryptic tweets were about, then here's a clue: It's not about Elmo Magalona. The actress cleared up the issue, saying it wasn't Elmo. "There was some misunderstanding lang. Pero kung sino man yung sinasabi niyang yun, napag-usapan na namin," she said. "Tapos, okay na. Naayos na." Aww! We're glad everything's fine between these two. Elmo even surprised Janella during her birthday last March 30! Aren't they the cutest? ♥ (via PEP.ph)

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
