Adorable Home

Recommended Videos

If you haven’t already downloaded—or at least heard of—this game, then we can only assume you’ve been living under a rock. This game is where you can live out the fantasy of actually owning property in this day and age; Plus, the cute graphics stay true to the name “Adorable Home.” Prepare bento boxes for your partner, take care of your pets, and redecorate your house however you like!

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play

Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector


We couldn’t make this list without including the OG adorable game that everybody had on their phones at one point. Neko means “cat” while atsume refers to “to gather” in Japanese, so the name itself is pretty self-explanatory. You play the game by taking care of the cats that show up in your yard; the more areas you have (and better food, toys, etc.) the more cats you will attract. Whether you love cats IRL or not, Neko Atsume’s felines are too cute to resist—and they’re almost always camera-ready!

Animal Restaurant


In Animal Restaurant, you play a down-on-its-luck kitty that gets hired to manage a restaurant in the woods. Unlike other high-stakes restaurant games, you can play this one at your own pace. You can decide when to call on customers—otherwise only around one or two will come in, and there are about 140 different animals depending on your level. The gameplay is really more about growing the restaurant as slowly, or as quickly as you like. The cute graphics and yummy food items are a plus, too.

Food Truck Pup: Cooking Chef


If the fact that this adorable pixel game lets you play as a Shiba Inu trying to make it big in the food truck world by cooking delicious-sounding crepes isn’t enough to get you playing, then we don’t know what will. This expansive game will let you do anything from cooking, handling the food truck, dressing up the pixel dogs (there’s more than one breed!), gather ingredients and even franchise out your business. The gameplay isn’t too taxing either, so your brain cells can really enjoy helping this pupper grow into the Chef Doge it’s meant to be.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play

Tsuki Adventure


This story-driven game isn’t as interactive as others, so it really lets you just step back and enjoy as Tsuki the rabbit goes off exploring this small, Japanese town in the countryside. The story goes that Tsuki was a perpetually stressed salary worker (sound familiar?) who decided to leave everything and move to his grandfather’s old carrot farm. With this slow lifestyle, you help Tsuki harvest the carrots while also getting to explore the countryside. It’s a peaceful game with lovely graphics, and a nice reminder to take a breather once in a while, just as Tsuki does.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Furistas Cat Café – Cuddle Cute Kittens


A couple of you may have already jumped at the phrase “cuddle cute kittens,” but this game offers even more fun than just that. In this game, you take care of an adorable and fully customizable little cat café full of different kinds of felines. The best part is that you act as a matchmaker for the cats—most of which were rescued—and your guests, finding them forever homes.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Showa Candy Shop 3: Grandma’s Purring Postmaster


Join this sweet old granny as she takes care of her little candy shop in a small Japanese town. This game is all about nostalgia and letting granny’s story shine through. You can help her stock up sweets in her shop, collect different kinds of Japanese treats, and meet all kinds of customers. It’s the third version of the popular game, proving that people just can’t get enough of this heartwarming tale.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Sailor Cats


Join a bunch of super cute kittens on a worldwide adventure in this game! It’s a simple enough collecting game, but you can help the cats get bigger and bigger fish (and other fun collectibles) while their shop grows and you enter cool new islands. You can also dress up your cats, which is always a big plus, TBH. There are also relics based on actual historical objects that you can read up on so you can even learn as you play.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play.



Disclaimer: This popular game from the same company behind Neko Atsume is entirely in Japanese. But Tabikaeru (which can be translated to “Journey Frog”) has gathered enough of a following worldwide that there are dozens of English guides online—thanks to its easygoing gameplay and adorable graphics. The instructions are simple enough: You take care of a little frog by harvesting clovers (the game’s currency) and preparing a bag for it to take on its journeys. Most of the time the little frog is not at home, but the mementos it sends back are a cool reminder of the trips you yourself ought to take.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Purrfect Spirits


We don’t know what it is about cats but it seems people can’t get enough of cat-centric games. In Purrfecr Spirits, you play a ghost that has nothing left to do with its time but take care of the cats that visit your house. The felines pay you back with money that you can use—to buy more fun stuff for more cats, because what else would you want to do? The game even treats you to adorable cut scenes of the ghost playing with the cats.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

I was, but I am not. Desperately, I am trying to reach you – my hope. I am in this particular space in my own constructed world where doubts and frustrations recur. Emphasizing how scared I am being here, I never explored this area before. I was always in those places filled with benevolence, hope shining like the light the sun and the moon possess. And I didn’t have any plans to visit a ‘dark’ place, as how I described it then. But, as funny as how my world suddenly flipped, I am now here, completely lost with monsters persuading me to go insane.

How did I end up here? I can’t logically tell you the answer for that, but I guess, I know when. It started when I had to consider what college course do I want to pursue. Well, if you want to ask what ambition had occurred in my mind when I was young – which is usually the case in terms of life when you were like 7-year-old young - it was definitely being a doctor. I’d thought about wearing a medical coat with a stethoscope around my neck, ready to cure people from their illnesses. It was actually stuck in my mind for so long I almost thought that I was sure of it, yet, as a particular song yields, almost was never really enough and still, it is and will never be.

When I realized that such a perspective was slowly draining me, I tried my best to stand tough. I convinced myself that this was just temporary, that I could think of a way out of this. “There’s still plenty of time,” I once convinced myself. However, my environment demonstrated the contrary: I felt like I was completely out of time.

I was there when my classmates were happily talking about that ‘dream course’ they wish to take in their ‘dream university.’ I was there when my family was suggesting the thought of using my ‘suitable’ speaking voice for broadcasting and voice acting purposes. I was there when my teacher was convincing me that Education suited me the best. That ‘Stand tough!’ aura I used to own back then, suddenly transformed into ‘I give up!’ state, slowly destroying my being. And now, I am here in this space where doubts and frustrations are filling my former enthusiastic self. I need help.

I know, at this point, some of you may never consider me ‘fatal’ because, as you’re reading this, you may judge that I still have the ability to transform my thoughts into words that can be read, so that ‘automatically’ falls into the aspect of complete sanity. No, because I will never tell everything to you in the first place if I still have the urge to stand like I used to, relative to my belief that speaking up through writing is the best way to attract help.

When you look at the photo of mine above, you may say that I was okay. That I was successful. That I was never losing myself. Yes, I was. But, think about what happened days after that was taken and the message of this passage you started reading minutes before, do you think I am still the same girl smiling in the photo? I hope I will be or better yet, improve if the world will permit me. But, now I’m sure – I’m not the same.


This blog is dedicated to all teens out there struggling in determining what they really want in their life or if you simply want a glow up. And since were still facing a pandemic, I think this is also a season where everyone is re-thinking about their lives. So, I hope these advices might help you.

Tip #1. TAKE RISK - since most of you are still young, I advice you to take your biggest risk. Whether it may be taking the course you want, a skill you want to acquire or just simply taking the risk to throw away your emotional baggage from your childhood. While you're still young, you have very little to lose. You dont have that much commitments and responsibilities. Because the older you get, the more responsibilities and obligations came. So when they are still not piling up, take the risk! As for me, the biggest risk I took when I was still a teenager is to CUT OFF TOXIC FAMILY TIES.

I may sound rude here but, yeah. I decided to throw away my emotional baggage from my traumatic childhood and cut off some of my family ties and it is completely okay! You dont have to be bothered by whatever they will say. Because at your age, you are already investing on your growth as a person. If you really want to grow, THERE IS NO PERFECT TIME FOR YOU TO TAKE RISK BUT NOW. Because in taking risk you are actually giving yourself a reward of getting something amazing or beyond what you expect you can have. As they say, the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward. Keep in mind that the bigger the risk, the bigger possibility of FAILURE. But that is completely OKAY. Because just like what I said earlier, you are still young. You dont have so much to lose so, dont be afraid to take the risk and then fail. But after failing, learn from it and the more courage you have to take risk the greater the learning, reward or happiness. Ito na nga, how to take risk nga ba? And what are the risk that would actually help me to grow? #

2: VOICE LESSON - dont get me wrong, hindi ito vocalization para sa pagkanta. What I mean is, learn to listen to that VOICE INSIDE YOU. Listen to your heart, to your intuition and to your visions because it will be your GUIDE. Because I realize that as you go along your journey of your life and if you really want to be YOURSELF and be successful in achieving your goals, the only GUIDE that you should follow is your OWN VOICE.

It is okay to take and consider other people's advices but at the end of the day,you should never forget to listen to your own voice. Because that voice is what tells you what you truly want. How would you know that if it is your 'own' voice? Your own voice always comes from your HEART. The voice where YOU and GOD'S voice are one. Because I firmly believe that God knows your heart and that is where he reside. I like journaling because whenever I journal my thought every night and every morning, I feel a dual voice inside my head. Like, it contradicts what the other voice is telling. For example: If we have dreams or goals that puts us so much weight and pressure to the point that it makes you exhausted, STOP. Because it might be a dream or goal of someone else. I believe that your own dreams and goals may be frustrating most of the time, but that frustration has fueling feeling that will always tell you that 'This is the hard way to better so keep going'. Frustration in your own dreams will not make you feel exhausted because achieving a dream itself is a fulfilling feeling.

#3. TAKE ACTION - if you really want something to happen, take action. Dont just sit there and wait things to come your way. Make action or decisions that will take you to where you want to go in your life. Just like what I said in one of my novels that I am writing in wattpad, "There is no such thing as destiny or fate. Because YOU make your OWN life choices." For example, I cannot expect to be a published author if I dont write any novels right? The bottomline here is, if you are not moving forward you are actually moving backward. And it is a sad thing. Life is full of situations where you will be put in the line whether you take courage or just stay where you are. Because GROWING needs consistency in moving forward. So if you dont have to enough courage to take action, your life will always stay the same or worse you will continuously shrink down.

#4. EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS - this means stretching your comfort zone. I watched an anime entitled "Black Clover" there is a captain there where he always tell his subordinates to surpass their limits right, here right now. Going out of our comfort zones are surely scary and uncomfortable. But you have to accept the fact that you cannot stay on the coast forever. You have to change, because the only thing that is constant in this world is change right? Go out of your comfort zones because LIMITS are just in the MIND. There are disabled people who are successful in their own careers. Because the lesson here is, if you hold back there will be no growth. Because GROWTH blooms in DISCOMFORT.

Last, #5. INVEST IN YOURSELF - especially now that you are still young, you should focus on investing on yourself more. Time is your bestfriend at this point of your life. You have so much time to discover things about yourself. I never regret buying and reading books that I never knew will help me later on in dealing life's challenges. You can use that time to read books, gain wisdom, or pick a new skill, improve your talent and learn from your experiences. Keep learning outside your home or your school. Because the real battlefield is OUTSIDE. What you learn in school will only help you in your career but your wisdom and experiences will help you in life or as a person. People who doesnt embrace growth will never succeed in their life. (This is a reflection blog from my 21st birthday last week. I hope you can feature this on your page and I hope it can help others as well. )
