Blinks, ready na ba kayo? After an epic collaboration in 2018 for Dua Lipa’s “Kiss And Make Up,” the popular K-pop group Blackpink is back again to kick it in 2020 with a fresh new east-meets-west collab. This time, they are featured in a song with no less than Lady Gaga, the mother monster, herself.

In an interview with Japanese magazine, TV Groove, Lady Gaga spilled more deets about her collaboration with the four-member girl group. The song is called “Sour Candy” which is one of the tracks in her new album Chromatica. On working with Blackpink over the song, Lady Gaga said that she was the one who reached out to the girls for a possible partnership over a new song. “I spoke to them and asked them if they wanted to sing with me, and they were so happy and motivated,” She shares. “It was a really exciting collaboration.”

Lady Gaga was also particularly enthusiastic about having her lyrics translated in another language and even said that she was honored to be an honorary member of the girl group, at least for “Sour Candy.” Awww! In the same interview, she says, “I was excited to hear them interpret songs in Korean and told them that the part was very creative and fun. I was amazed to hear their singing. They are beautiful young women, really talented, and I'm proud to be the fifth member of Blackpink (on this song).”

Empowered women working together—we love to see it! Not much else has been revealed about the collab, however, like whether or not we’re getting a music video just like Lady Gaga’s other collab “Rain On Me” with Ariana Grande. Still, we’re so ready to hear new music from these two powerful artists.

“Sour Candy” is part of Lady Gaga’s new album Chromatica which comes out on May 28, 2020. Listen to the song here:

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.
