You’ve probably never seen a New Year’s Eve like this before. But a typical Philippine New Year’s Eve is extremely wild, you’ll think the entire place is a warzone, with explosions everywhere and fireworks shooting up to the sky. When you’re inside the house, it sounds like the entire city is under heavy aerial bombing. This amateur video, taken from one of the tallest building in Metro Manila, gives us an amazing perspective.

This kind of scene is relatively unique to the Philippines. In Western countries especially in the United States, fireworks are heavily regulated. It’s quite difficult to purchase one unless you’re a licensed technician.

Indeed, nobody does it like the Philippines. The entire country always experience total anarchy every New Year. The celebration is definitely fun and unforgettable. But it comes with a cost. After the celebration, there are several hundreds if not thousands of fireworks related accidents. Huge fires that destroyed homes and properties, hundreds of amputations mostly on kids. Not to mention the airport having to be shut down and all flights cancelled due to the thick smoke. If you’re not used to it, you’ll definitely think the entire place sounds like a freaking warzone, except all people are having fun.

Couple Thought They Adopted A Mini-Pig, Until It Grew Up Into 670 Pounds Of Cuteness!

At first, they were disappointed. But in the end, it didn’t even matter!

Canadian couple Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter thought they adopted a little pygmy piglet, a type of pig that doesn't grow big. But it turns out, their adorable "tiny piglet" named Esther was actually a full-size commercial pig. In just two years, she grew up into a whopping 670 pounds of cuteness!

Despite of their 'massive' discovery, the couple still decided to keep Esther. They were even more surprised when they found out that their huge pet is actually intelligent and friendly. Since then, they decided to become vegans. They realized that eating other pigs, that are probably just as awesome as their pet, is terribly wrong. Esther also inspired the couple to devote their lives into building an animal shelter.

Esther was only 3 pounds when they adopted her.
