SPOTTED | 6 Well-Loved Pinoy Junk Food

Pinoys love to eat! That's an understatement!

There are those picky ones who prefer casual dining experience. There are those who love to dine in at fast food restaurants, while others just prefer to eat at home. And there are those who just want to be in the company of others and feast on some salty chips --- junk foods that go along with every movie you watch, with every heartache story you tell, or with every small success you celebrate.

These 6 Filipino chichiryas have stayed in the Filipino households for a very long time. Check out the list of the 6 well-love Pinoy junk foods here

VIDEO | How menstruation (regla) works

Almost all women will experience this -- menstruation. But how does it happen? And why does it happen? What makes one cycle of menstruation? And why does it take an average of 28 days?

Image Screencap: Youtube channel TED-Ed

Youtube channel TED-Ed has come up with an audiovisual (video) clip of how menstruation works. Take time to realize why it's important to know what happens in menstruation so that you'd be more aware and empowered to teach others what it is all about.

In the very interesting video below, you will come across terms like ovaries, oocytes, and follicles, and hormones like estrogen, progesterone, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and luteinizing hormone (LH). But more than just being familiar with these names, you will understand better the mechanisms that take place in every menstrual cycle. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

TV | Is the AlDub craze losing steam? Kantar ratings show It's Showtime slowly beating Eat Bulaga! in January 2016.

Kantar Media has recently released data of its national TV ratings coverage. In the images below, national TV ratings for January 11 and 12 show that ABS-CBN's It's Showtime has edged out GMA's crown jewel program Eat Bulaga! after a surprise ratings boost from the unexpected formation of the AlDub love team featuring Alden Richards and Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza in real life) has caused  a ratings drag on the Kapamilya side.


January 11 was the first time It's Showtime successfully won more viewers vs Eat Bulaga! since the creation of the popular segment "KalyeSerye."



On January 12, It's Showtime beat Eat Bulaga! by a meager 0.1%. A day before, on January 11, the former had a 0.3% gap over Eat Bulaga! in the Urban+Rural category.


It can be recalled that Eat Bulaga! obtained a record 40.1% rating, out. Since the start of the year, the ratings gap between It's Showtime and Eat Bulaga! thinned. 

Did the entry of Mariel Rodriguez, Amy Perez, and Hashtag help in bringing the gap to a narrow close? Will the classic sub-program "Tawag ng Tanghalan" of It's Showtime take it to a ratings leap?
Is the AlDub phenomenon losing steam? Air out your opinion below.

Meanwhile, here is AGB Nielsen TV ratings for Eat Bulaga! and It's Showtime last January 11.
