LOOK: These Mug Cakes Can Be Prepared in Less Than 2 Minutes

I started to cook when my family moved to the US, leaving me alone to fend for myself. In order to survive, I went online to study recipes and watch cooking videos. I’ve learned to make basic dishes like stew and fried grub, but I’ve always wanted to make desserts. My hopes were dashed when I realized how hard baking is. It’s a science, after all. Even the deceptively simple no-bake mug cakes are hard.

A few weeks ago, I discovered a new product that takes the hassle out of making mug cakes. Maya’s Happy Mugs come in an easy to prepare recipe, where all you literally have to do is mix the powder and pop it in the microwave. After a minute and a half, you have a pillowy-soft cake that smells freshly-baked.

After going through some tough times last year and this 2018, I realized that life isn’t perfect but you can achieve happiness with little pockets of joy.

Content consumption has changed these past few years. Now, we no longer need to go to cinemas or wait months until a movie comes out on DVD or on cable TV. Now, we can just go to our favorite streaming platform and be among the first in the world to catch a movie or TV show. We don’t have to leave home.

LG has redefined home entertainment because four of its OLED TVs have been officially tagged as Netflix-recommended.

The #AngkasTaraNa Music Video is Funny and LSS-Worthy!

One of my favorite profiles on social media is the Twitter account of Angkas, the leading motorcycle taxi platform in the country. They post a lot of funny content, even riding on current memes to make jokes about themselves, their followers, and the ridesharing industry. It may seem like they don’t have an online strategy but it worked to their advantage because they now have a distinct personality.

Now, Angkas has decided to level up by producing a music video for the song #AngkasTaraNa. It’s hilarious and LSS-worthy, but there’s something else that makes the song and the video special: the rapper, Trix Maceres, is an Angkas driver. The choreography was also developed by an Angkas driver, and many of the people in the video are part of the community, too.
