Over the past 6 months that we have been on lockdown due to COVID-19, we have seen lots of trends come and go. For food, there’s the ube pandesal and baked sushi. Also, we saw people getting into gardening and becoming plantitos and plantitas. As for pop culture, we witnessed the rise of a new genre that was a little niche before- the BL or Boys Love series. Actually, this isn’t new but to the majority of Filipinos, this is something to discover, including me. So, if you are also late to the party, here are some of the BL series recommendations that should get you started:Read more about 5 BL Series Recommendations To Get You Started …
One of the recent shows that I finished during the lockdown is this 2018 Thai series, Girl From Nowhere. I was instantly hooked to the dark tone of the series which was in huge contrast with the light and cheery vibe of the Thai BL series like 2gether The Series that I obsessed with. So, I know you also fell in love with Nanno and her maniacal laugh so here is a bit of good news: Girl From Nowhere Season 2 is arriving soon!Read more about LOOK: Girl From Nowhere Season 2 Starts Production on Netflix …
Reading Time: 3 minutesHey there, Bingers! I bet you do miss attending concerts, events, and gigs as much as I do. To be honest, I REALLY DO!!! Before the whole COVID thing happened, I frequent a bar in Cubao every weekend, the now closed TodayXFuture. Also, it has been a hobby of my friends and I to have a pre-game either in Cubao X or Katipunan. There is something about watching live gigs and enjoying the artistry of local artists and musicians. So, now that we are on the sixth month of staying at home, I bet we all have been craving for the experience again. Well, worry no more because Linggo ng Musikang Pilipino is here to give our fill.

Well, with different platform available to us now, why don’t you express yourself? Take photos and post it on Instagram. Write a blog and write about it on WordPress. Or maybe start a vlog on YouTube? Well, now with OPPO Reno 4, you’ll have more chance to show #ClearlyTheBestYou!
Reading Time: 3 minutesAs content creators, we must never stop creating content. Stop for a period of time and you will lose your relevance and your readers will forget about you. (Or at least, that’s how I see it.) So when the lockdown started in March, I struggled to create more content because: a.) I am stuck at home, and b.) movie premiers and events were cancelled. How did I cope? I returned to the essence of blogging and created more personal content while posting throwback photos and occasional updates on Instagram. Also, I started something that I have been holding off for the longest time: vlogging. Video editing does not intimidate me. In fact, I studied it in college. It’s just that there’s too much thing to do. That was until I decided to look past it and started vlogging. Now, let me share with you how I started my easy vlogging setup at home.
Reading Time: 2 minutesBingers, are you bored as hell at home? Do you miss heading out to the cinema and watch your favorite superheroes kickass on the big screen just like what Harley Quinn did in Birds of Prey? Well, SAME! But you know what, you can get your fill of awesomeness at the DC Fandome that is happening on August 22! Mark your calendars because we got the details!
Reading Time: 2 minutesHave I told you, Bingers? The five month lockdown has made me re-evaluate my content creation plan. When everything was still normal, I was a Pop Culture x Lifestyle content creator. I regularly attended movie premieres, reviewed food establishments, and featured products. But when COVID-19 happened, that changed a lot! Particularly my pop culture side as a content creator. Events were put on hold and cinemas were closed. Movie premieres were cancelled all through out. In fact, the weekend the lockdown started, I was supposed to go to the advanced screening of A Quiet Place: Part 2 but then I received an email the day before saying that it was cancelled. To keep up with the times to still create content, I turned my eye onto vlogging and now, livestreaming my Nintendo Switch games. I did my research and every livestreamers need to have the right equipment, especially a capture card.
Reading Time: 3 minutesHow is the pandemic treating you, Bingers? Are you still doing good? Still sane? I really do hope that you are still doing fine because I am, despite the INTENSE boredom and lockdown fever that hit me few weeks after the lockdown has started. In addressing it, I have done several activities to curb my attention: cooking, vlogging, gardening, and working out. And yes, let’s talk about the latter- working out. For regular gym-goers like I am, hitting the gym was a regular activity when our lives were still in normal, pre-COVID. But by the second week of March 2020, when the government-imposed lockdown happened nationwide, our gym-going routine was put on a halt. Our gains were lost, and weights increased. Well, for some because lucky me, I learned to love home workouts and I invested on my home gym setup. Recently, however, the government has announced that they will be lifting restrictions and gyms will be reopened soon. So, I asked myself, “should I return to the gym during the pandemic?”
