During The Vampire Diaries' season seven finale, a familiar voice made fans lose all their chill—Elena Gilbert's which was played by Nina Dobrev. Nina might have left the show already, but she still came by to visit and lend her voice. So is a comeback possible? Producer Julie Plec said, "Obviously things can change throughout time, if the show goes on longer than we expect it to, or if we all collectively decide it would be fun to bring her back earlier, and she wanted to. But in my opinion, she was very clear about what she wanted the next step in her life to be, and she's doing a great job of achieving that. So I'm sticking with my side of the plan, which is to bring her back at the very end." Yasss! (via Dolly.com.au)

Will Bella Hadid be on the big screen soon? The model said in an interview with Elle that she would want to try her hand at acting. "I would like to act, eventually. But I don't want to do half-and-half. When I'm working for something, I'm very focused, and I put in a lot of hard work and a lot of training," she said. "I want to give 100% to modeling for as long as it takes, and then when I feel that it's time to move on, I'd very much like to try acting. And I think I would like to be an actress or at least I'd like to see if I'm any good." We're looking forward to seeing you act too, Bella. (via JustJaredJr.com)

Feeling down these days? Let these tips from Kendall Jenner help you deal. The super model revealed how she does it in an interview recently, saying, "When I feel down or upset, I like to distract myself with friends. I call them because they're the ones that make me laugh and know exactly what to do to make me happy. In that sense, I truly have the very best group of friends. Other times, though, I just want to be alone. I'll stay at home and tune out the rest of the world. It really depends on the situation and what is making me upset. When things get really bad, and I'm really down, I call my mom. She listens to me—which is so important—and gives really good advice. I feel lucky to have such a strong support system when things get rough and feel overwhelming." Keep your family and friends close, Candy Girls! (via J-14.com)

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.
