Here are the five beauty queens from the Philippines who drew a lot of attention in this year’s international pageants. They’ve definitely given the country a big boost in the global beauty pageant circuit, as their placements made the Philippines the only country with finalists in every major international beauty pageant.

Pia Wurtzbach — who has a Filipina mom and a German dad — became the toast of the pageant world when she snagged the much-covered Miss Universe crown this year. Her winning moment was nearly ruined by host Steve Harvey, who mistakenly announced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutiérrez as the winner. The gaffe initially stunned the pageant judges in Las Vegas, who had all voted for Wurtzbach as Miss Universe. Wurtzbach’s stunning good looks, regal bearing, and astute answers left no doubt that this culinary arts graduate is the real queen.

Angelia Ong – Miss Earth 2015

Tamagotchi Is Back After 20 Years But Now It’s An App

Who misses Tamagotchi? This new app is for you.

By

Every 90’s kid can attest to the joys brought about by iconic toys that were popular back then – Tamiya, Beyblade, the Gameboy, Tetris, and others. One of the most popular was the Tamagotchi, a game that allows kids to raise their own virtual pets.

Well, the iconic and popular 90s game Tamagotchi is back! After 20 long years, you can now play the game again – but this time, its on your smartphones. the said game will officially launch in 2018 although it’s now available in Canada via the iOS.

The new app, which will be called My Tamagotchi Forever, will be offered for free for both iOS and Android users.

This will allow the users, to help their characters grow and mingle with the other creatures in a place called "Tamatown".

It resembles Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

The game, however, had a makeover.

Source: Wikipedia

Instead of the traditional pixellated character with a face, the virtual pet will have AR features, just like other hit games such as Pokemon Go.


For those who have tried playing Tamagotchi in their childhood days, the game will require the gamer to feed, bathe, clean and put the virtual pet to bed on time.

If the gamer would neglect catering to the needs of the character, the pet may turn into a sulky ogre.

According to Tamagotchi Forever’s website:

“Twenty years since the West first fell under the Tamagotchi spell. The phenomenon is spreading love to a whole new generation of caring fans with its first ever free-to-play mobile game!”

Tamagotchi Forever is also offering a chance to become the inspiration for a new character, which will be added to the roster of characters in the game. The winner will be selected randomly as long as users will register early on the game’s website.

Already available in Canada, the global release will be announced soon. Excited? Let’s reminisce how it was to have the Tamagotchi back in the days.

Mariah Carey Still Earns $507,000 Each Year From ‘All I Want For Christmas’

That’s a huge amount of money for a song released way back 1994!

By

Apart from the decors and gifts, the food and festivities, perhaps one of the things that really bring the Christmas spirit is music. We all love those old-fashioned Christmas carols and, yes, even those pop songs that just wouldn’t go away throughout the years.

One of the cheesy hits that has truly stood the test of time, of course, is that track by Mariah Carey entitled ‘All I Want For Christmas.’ We’re all familiar with that song and admit it – reading that title alone probably made you sing the tune in your head.

To this day, Mariah Carey still makes money from ‘All I Want Is Christmas’.

Well it looks like the pop star is much more excited for the holidays than most of us since she, according to reports, still receives earnings from the track each and every year.

Every year, the singer earns around US$507,000 from royalties.

While some would likely point out that Mariah Carey is worth millions of dollars and that such an amount is just a drop in the ocean, that’s still easy money straight into her pocket without having to do anything – each and every year.


That’s definitely not bad for a song that was released way back 1994, right? Also, I say it’s a little bit ironic for a track that opens with “I don’t want a lot for Christmas” and claims “I don’t care about the presents”.

‘All I Want For Christmas’ was co-written and produced by Walter Afanasieff.

So just in case you need to hear the track for the millionth time, we’ve embedded the official music video below for your viewing and listening pleasure.

Titanic Director Finally Answers The Question On Why Jack Didn’t Fit On The Door

Titanic has always been everyone’s favorite movie.

By

Titanic fans, rejoice! For two decades, a common question about the heartbreaking ending of the Titanic movie has circulated among fans everywhere. Why didn’t Rose let Jack float on the floating door?

In fact, many viewers bashed Rose and said she was selfish for not saving Jack when the guy saved her countless times while on the giant ship.

The movie's director, James Cameron finally answered and it was simple.

James Cameron explained:

“And the answer is very simple because it says on page 147 [of the script] that Jack dies.”

The heart of Titanic fans would break upon hearing this but it's the truth.

Cameron further explained that when they chose the door, it was an artistic choice.

“I think it’s all kind of silly, really, that we’re having this discussion 20 years later. But it does show that the film was effective in making Jack so endearing to the audience that it hurts them to see him die. Had he lived, the ending of the film would have been meaningless.”

“The film is about death and separation; he had to die. So whether it was that, or whether a smoke stack fell on him, he was going down. It’s called art, things happen for artistic reasons, not for physics reasons.”

The question has plagued anyone who has ever watched the box-office movie hit.

However, Cameron defended why they chose a bigger door. He actually tried to get the physics right and said that he actually got in the water.

He made actors float on a makeshift door to prove that Rose couldn’t survive. He wants the scene to be realistic. They tested the door for two days and he wants it to support one person with full free-board, which means that Rose was not immersed at all in the freezing water.


This will get her to survive three hours before the rescue ship to go back and rescue her.

He added:

“And we very, very finely tuned it to be exactly what you see in the movie because I believed at the time, and still do, that that’s what it would have taken for one person to survive.”

That being said, the question should have been dismissed long ago because if there was another ending, it would not create the same impact it did 20 years ago.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the movie, “Titanic” will return to theaters on Dec. 1.
