Viral Video Alert: Tiny Floating Asian Babies

Radio Station STAR FM 93.9 uploaded a video onto their official Facebook earlier this month and it already has 170,000 shares and even more likes. What could possibly captivate people this much? Adorable Asian babies, of course!

In this video, a pair of chubby-cheeked babies are relaxing in a small tub using baby neck floats. It’s quite a sight if you’ve never seen this odd little contraption. The device is used to not only keep the baby afloat, it also encourages good exercise and allows babies to explore their body movements.

 

The cuteness of these babies in their tiny donut floaties have left many squealing in delight, but that’s not all. The adorable video has been met with an alarming amount of criticism from those who are unfamiliar with the device.

Many have voiced concern and even anger. They have called the parents “stupid” for leaving the babies with a device that looks “uncomfortable and dangerous.” Admittedly, as cute as they were, a part of me couldn’t help but worry for the comfort of these babies as well.

Thankfully, many Asian netizens have pointed out that baby neck floats have been around in Asia for years. In fact, an American company named Otteroo, sells the device and goes into detail about its comfort and  safety. According to the official site, this device helps satisfy mental curiosity, encourages water familiarity and helps physical development and coordination.

 

Have you tried a baby neck float on your child? If so, tell us your experience!

 


Cutest Video Ever: Little Taiwanese Boy Comforts Girl on First Day of School

Remember when we were little and all the fairy tales were about a brave prince saving a beautiful princess?

We eventually grew up and realized that this fairy tale is nothing like reality. After all, we don’t need a prince to “save” us. And anyway, a lot of guys don’t even come close to the prince you may have once dreamed about. (Maybe you realized you prefer princesses over princes!)

Whatever the reason may be, we all grew up and got cynical. Well, this next video, reportedly trending in Taiwan, may have you believing in chivalry all over again.

In this video, which is currently one of the cutest things we’ve ever watched, a little Taiwanese girl is scared and crying during her first day of kindergarten. Luckily for her, she befriends the sweetest little fellow who tells her that he’ll protect her. He even offers to sleep next to her during nap time to keep her safe. Ah, the innocent days before hormones made everything complicated.

Check out the video below and be prepared for uncontrollable squealing.

1600 Pandas Invade Hong Kong’s Airport

 

Just a couple of days ago, 1600 pandas invaded the Hong Kong airport. Before you go into panic mode, don’t hide your kids, hide your wife just yet. These pandas are made out of recycled paper, constructed by French artist Paulo Grangeon. Now, animal invasions (well, man-made that is) in Asia are not exactly uncommon, as over the years we have seen a giant yellow rubber duck floating around, traveling from country to country. So what’s with this latest invasion and why so many of them?

Pandas, as you all probably know by now, are one of the top endangered species on our planet. According to the World Wild Life website, the greatest threat to panda endangerment are humans. Everyday human activities such as constructing roadways and railroads are causing fragmentation, as well as forest destruction are putting our precious pandas lives at risk!

That is why French artist Paulo Grangeon decided to step it up by creating the most adorable exhibition – a display of 1600 pandas made out of recycled paper (1600 for each of the pandas that still exist today) to raise awareness. Grangeon’s exhibition that began in France in 2008 was of course, highly popular. Thus, he took the campaign a step further by traveling with yes, all 1600 pandas to over 20 countries including the Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and Taiwan.

The Purr-fect Coffee Break Spot

Themed cafés have been around forever. You’ve probably heard of the famous Rainforest Café that can be found all over the United States or the Hello Kitty-themed café’s in Asia. Now, cat-themed cafés that started in Taiwan a dozen years ago are becoming a trend and are slowly hitting Europe, with North America and Australia soon to follow later this year. It’s pawsitively quite frightening how quickly this trend is growing. Japan alone is home to a reported number of 150 cat cafes where locals and tourists alike enjoy sipping their hot beverages while being able to admire and play with different breeds of cuddly kittens and cats.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. Mixing food and feline does not sound sanitary nor appetizing, but the cat cafés are already thinking one step ahead. Before approaching their furry friends, customers are politely asked to disinfect their hands with a hand sanitizer, provided by the café. Some cafés even have a “look but don’t grab policy.” Even with restrictions however, these cat cafes are highly popular, so be sure to call ahead and make a reservation or else the whole situation could become a cat-astrophe!

Here is a list of top cat cafes to visit:

1. The Cat Café Budapest in Budapest, Hungary

25 Irresistible Panda-Shaped Foods

To avoid stereotyping, I’m not going to say that all Asians like pandas, but we definitely have a soft spot for these adorable bears. Native to south central China, pandas are known for their distinct black and white color and for (despite their large size) having a diet that consists  almost entirely of bamboo.

Well many people have decided to incorporate pandas into their own diet. No, I’m not talking about eating our beloved bears. A number of people have found creative ways to incorporate the panda’s distinct black and white patches into every day food. The result? Adorable panda-shaped and panda-themed food!

And who wouldn’t want food in the shape of these docile, cuddly creatures? Pandas are now considered an endangered species, but people have definitely made up for that number by incorporating pandas into just about anything you can think of.

Now riceballs, cookies, pastries, bread, mochi, ice cream, cookies and even coffee can come in an adorable panda shape.

The Adorable Ye-bin is Back!

Do you remember this adorable little face? We’ll give you a hint. She isn’t afraid of strangers.

Yes, this is little Ye-bin. This cutie became a viral sensation when her video “Mom Tries to Teach Adorable Girl Life Lesson” hit YouTube and gathered nearly 9 million views. During the video, Ye-bin’s mother tries to teach her about strangers and being safe, but we get the feeling Ye-bin is so friendly that she would accept all sorts of sweets from strangers.

This time around, Ye-bin’s mother is trying to teach her how to say the phrase “I am scared.” Simple enough right? As it turns out, even the most simple of tasks becomes adorable with this little girl.

Throughout the video, Ye-bin struggles with the pronunciation of the phrase, but she isn’t bothered. In fact, she’s giggling the entire time. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a child say “I’m scared” with such a cuteness.

The video was only uploaded yesterday, but it has already gathered over 30,000 views. Check it out below.

 

 

Who Knew Judo Could Be This Cute?

Anyone who is skilled in the art of judo knows that it should not be taken lightly. Although the name judo means the “gentle or yielding way,” an intense Judo match is far from gentle.

The objective of this martial art, which is derived from jujutsu, is to throw or takedown an opponent to the ground. You may immobilize or subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke.

The idea behind judo is to use your opponent’s strength against them and adapt to changing circumstances. Because it does not solely focus on one’s strength, judo can be mastered by anyone regardless of their body type.

Although judo welcomes all, we certainly didn’t expect to see these tiny girls on the mat for a judo match.

Our initial fear of the young girls getting hurt is quickly erased. We can’t help but squeal at how cute these girls are in their mini judo outfits. They bow to one another enthusiastically and take turns pinning one another to the ground.

By the end of the match, the girls simply run towards each other and hug before falling to the ground giggling. Watch the video below.
