Nowadays, we're all doing our part to flatten the curve by staying home in hopes of putting the global pandemic to an end soon. But living in isolation for far too long can be very challenging. If you've been looking for an emotional outlet or simply something to take your mind off things for a while, your search stops here: Sony Interactive Entertainment is letting PlayStation 4 users download Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey for free.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is a popular remastered trilogy that includes Naughty Dog's Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. The games revolve around treasure hunter Nathan Drake, who travels across the globe while unraveling mysteries.

On the other hand, Journey is an indie adventure game that features minimalist graphics and intuitive gameplay. It is deemed as one of the "best games of all time."

Both games will be available for a limited time only through digital downloads from April 15 at 8 p.m. PDT (11 a.m. PST) to May 5 at 8 p.m. PDT (3 p.m. PST). Here's the best part: you're also entitled to permanent access if you redeem them now. In other words, there is no need to feel pressured to finish the games upon download because there's no expiration date. Gamers across the world have Sony's Play At Home initiative to thank for this much-needed entertainment.

"People all over the world are doing the right thing by staying home to help contain the spread of COVID-19," said Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment on the PlayStation Blog. "We are deeply grateful to everyone practicing physical distancing and take our responsibility as a home entertainment platform seriously, so we are asking our community to continue supporting the safe choice and the need to Play At Home."

In addition to providing free games, the Play At Home initiative is allotting a U.S. $10-million fund to support Sony's independent development partners who may be struggling amid the global pandemic.

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.
