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

ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

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!

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play

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.

Available on the Apple Store and Google Play

Food Truck Pup: Cooking Chef

ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

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

ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

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

ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

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.

Tabikaeru

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

ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

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.

"Today, I Won"

I always caught feelings for someone, and hoped so much that one day there could a thing between the two of us. I'm usually the one that makes the effort to buy and/or make cute gifts, chats them every other day, and stays up all night with him.

When I was 16, my childhood crush suddenly came back into my life. We'd constantly send updates to each other, recommend favorite songs and talk even the most random things. He'd even text me as early as 6 to just greet me good morning almost everyday. I hoped so much that when I confessed, he suddenly stopped talking to me.

For short, he ghosted me. Those 6 months I spent talking to him, allotting my time for him, and staying up until 3 am for him - all gone in a simple confession. Although I had a few crushes before him, he's the only one that got me in real pain. It was the kind of pain that I never thought I'd experience. It was the kind of pain that I couldn't believe.

After 7 years (it happened back in 2017), I thought he came back into my life to stay, but I guess he's just one of the guys who distanced. I felt a complete loser that time. But during this quarantine, everything was different. I caught feelings for someone else, but he treated me with the best kindness yet.

It happened at 2 am, May 30, 2020, when I impulsively confessed my feelings through messaging him. After saying my feelings, he responded with genuine and kind words. We both even complimented each other. Although the feelings didn't reciprocate, I still found a connection that can't be replaced with any guy.

To my 16 year old self, here I am, 18 and happy. You may have felt that time was the biggest regret and loss, but I'm here to tell you, we won. Today, I won.

Why our high school barkada is the best?

Remembering our high school years entails quite a lot reminiscing of the things we all been through when we were younger. You’ve experience a lot of new things during those 4 wonderful years and did most of them with the few people you consider your barkada. And through a series of all the lunch breaks you had together, the walks you took on the way home, and taking the same classes, you never thought you’d survive, you have made your life’s greatest friends.

Here are some of the reasons why your high school barkada is the best:

1. You figured out early teenage life together. The transition one have undergone from being a kid to a teenager wasn’t easy. For a moment you are not sure whether you should have played with your friends during recess or you should have just sat down and ate your food because you were too old for games. But whatever it is you chose to do, having friends who were as clueless as you make everything feel easier because you know, deep down, you’d figure things out eventually. You just need good company.

2. They were with you during your “jeje“ days. I bet you have pictures taken with Camera360 and Retrica. You also have pictures edited using Pizap with embarrassing captions and you somehow kept some of them so you could have something to post online during their birthdays.

3. They know all your exes. They will never EVER forget the name of an ex-boyfriend, an ex-fling, an ex-crush, and an almost you had. They will remind you of your every questionable love decision but you’ll just laugh anyway while saying “Past is past”.

4. They never judge you. They have welcomed you to their lives when you thought jelly shoes and checkered polos were the bomb! They were quick to have told your teachers that you were not feeling well so you could go home when you really just needed to poop. You tell them every embarrassing story you have and were fine with it.

5. You can always count on them. From the moment you first fell in love and the moment you first had your heart broken, they were with you. They were with you the moment you lost a parent and at moments when you thought you had nothing. Through every break-up and breakthrough, they were there to be your support system.

6. They are your family. Your high school friend’s family is your own family’s extension. Their parents are like your own. Don’t you feel a little kilig whenever your friend’s parents call you “anak”? And then eventually calling them mama and papa became so natural? I felt that, all the time.

7. They will always be your home. They are your place of refuge and security, the place who offers you their hands when you feel lost and the place you run to when you need saving. No matter how much time and distance separate you, they will be the one’s that you always long for and they are the one’s that you will always return to.
