Ever wondered if Zac Efron still looks as good if he were a girl? Wonder no more, because during his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with his Neighbors co-star Seth Rogen, Zac dressed up as one—he looks super pretty, natch. Watch the hilarious skit below!

Just yesterday, Selena Gomez surprised all of us when she posted a video of her and Taylor Swift during the Met Gala. We're definitely happy for these BFFs, but we just have to know the deets on their reunion, right? Apparently, according to an insider, Sel "now fully understands why Taylor was being so protective" of her when she and Justin Bieber got back together. The "Come & Get It" singer initiated their little meet up yesterday, telling Tay she was excited to see her. Aww! Boys are indeed whatever, and friends are forever!

Adele has been MIA in the music scene for months, and we kind of miss her. No complaints here, though, because we know she's happy with her baby and the love of her life. But did she just tweet that she's ready to get back to business? Adele just celebrated her 26th birthday and tweeted a photo captioned, "Bye bye 25... See you again later in the year x." Is she preparing for a comeback of some sort this year? We hope so!

"Princess Mia's planned nuptials to longtime love Michael Moscovitz are in jeopardy when the paparazzi uncover a startling secret: Mia has a long lost younger sister," Meg says of the plot. Now we're intrigued. Plus, this long-lost sister is going to have a spin-off book, too, titled From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess, which is targeted for the younger audiences.

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.
