These Miniature Meals Are Completely Edible (And Completely Cute)


We’ve seen miniature food sculptures that completely tantalized us with all the delicious details, but disappointed us because they were actually just made out of clay. But what if I told you we no longer have to be disappointed because someone figured out a way to make super tiny food 100% edible? Don’t believe it? Well, we recently stumbled across YouTube channel Miniature Space that will shake away your disbelief completely. These tiny dishes, suitable for dolls and figurines, are actually made for humans to consume.

Remember the younger days when we had pretend tea parties with our stuffed animals? There were even play kitchens where plastic food could “sizzle” in the stove. Sure, make-believe is fun, but sometimes it’s just not as satisfying as hearing actual oil pop on the skillet. That seems to be what the creators of Miniature Space thought considering they use fully functional, doll-sized cookware with tiny stoves and real ingredients to create the perfect sized meals for figurines.

Parents should be warned that Miniature Space is actually cooking everything with a real fire so children may want to stick to their plastic stoves. But if you’re looking to relive your childhood in a unique way, how about making these mini meals?


For breakfast, you can have some coffee, pancakes, and eggs:



For lunch, how about french fries and fried chicken:



For dinner, start off with miso soup, then shrimp tempura and sushi:



For dessert, some sweet red bean soup to finish off:


If you want to know what micro meal Miniature Space has cooked up next, you can follow their YouTube channel.

How Disney’s Tsum Tsum Craze is Taking America By Storm

So what’s a Tsum Tsum and why are people so obsessed with them? Maybe it’s their round shape. Maybe it’s their reasonable price tag. Maybe it’s because these plushies come in the form of Disney characters we know and love. Whatever the reason may be, it’s pretty hard not to be obsessed.

Before we get ahead of ourselves, you may be wondering what a Disney Tsum Tsum is and where they came from. In Japanese, “tsum” means to stack. Therefore, “Disney Tsum Tsum” literally translates to “Disney Stack Stack.” Fittingly, these adorable little Tsum Tsum are stacking (sorry) America by storm.

Tsum Tsum originated from a Japanese LINE mobile app. In the game, players must connect the stacked Tsum Tsum together in a Tetris-like way. It’s simple, adorable and addictive. More importantly, the concept was full of merchandising opportunities.

Since Disney is Disney and Japan is Japan, it’s no wonder that real life Tsum Tsum plushies were first released in Japan in 2013. Proving to be a huge hit, Disney’s Tsum Tsum were soon released in America and have since become the latest craze. During a recent trip to the Disney Store, a Disney Store employee confided in us that her boyfriend had to tell her to stop buying Tsum Tsum in order to stop an oncoming addiction. Who can blame her though? Available in small, medium and large sizes, all the Tsum Tsum are stackable in real life too.

As of now, Disney is slowly dipping into an infinite pool of gold by licensing characters from their movies into Tsum Tsum plushies. If you are fan of say Alice in Wonderland, 101 Dalmations or Cinderella, you can get a Tsum Tsum of all your favorite characters. And if you’re wondering/anticipating the inevitable Frozen Tsum Tsum collection, fear not! Frozen Tsum Tsum will be available starting March 3rd on the Disney Store website and at a store near you.

And let’s face it. No one is able to monetize capitalism more adorably than Disney.

Image of the Day: Baymax, Your Personal Curry Companion

Let’s be honest here. Who didn’t fall in love with Baymax after watching Disney’s Big Hero 6? Even the few who criticized the film admitted that they wanted their very own personal healthcare companion. And the movie is only getting more and more popular by the minute. Big Hero 6 was nominated for a Golden Globe as well as an Academy Award in the animated feature film category. I’m sure if there was an award for most huggable robot, Baymax would get nominated too.

As a way to express their love for the squishy robot, many fans are now eating Baymax.

…Yeah, I probably should’ve phrased that better, but it’s true! Fans really are finding creative ways to combine their favorite food with their favorite robot. Social media has been blowing up with Baymax-inspired soups, Baymax curry bowls and even Baymax riceballs.

Some are claiming that this trend was made popular by Japanese idol Haruna Kojima, who is a member of AKB48. Two weeks ago, the 26-year-old singer and actress posted a picture of her curry on her Instgram. But what made this dish so special was the rice which was shaped into an adorable Baymax lounging in the curry. With nearly 700k followers, you can bet Kojima’s picture went viral.

The trend picked up like wildfire and soon fans were showing off some impressive skills using everything from rice to pork buns to make Baymax’s huggable body.

Adorable Chinese Boy Does The Best Michael Jackson Impression EVER


We’ve found the perfect person to help make your Friday even better! Pan Cheng Hao the tiny toddler who made his debut appearance on China’s Got Talent will certainly put a smile on your face.

The panel of judges didn’t quite know what to make of Pan Cheng Hao when he ran up on stage. He begins by very seriously teliing them that he joined China’s Got Talent to train himself and his body. Of course, later he clears things up and admits that he took part in the show to try and get the other kids to play with him again (Awww). 

The second the music begins, Pan Cheng Hao snaps into attention. He nails everything from the moonwalk to MJ’s hip thrusting and even does an impressive amount of facials. This adorable and impressive dance pushes the crowd to their feet and Pan Cheng Hao walks away with a giant “yes” from the judges.

But not before striking a few more poses, of course.


This Rescued Baby Elephant Playing With Ribbon Will Make Your Day


Meet Faa Mai, a 5-year-old elephant residing at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand. She’s here to make your day.

The Elephant Nature Park operates thanks to the Save Elephant Foundation, a non-profit organization which provides care and a safe place for Thailand’s captive elephant population “through a multifaceted approach involving local community outreach, rescue and rehabilitation programs, and educational ecotourism operations.”

The founder of the Save Elephant foundation is Sangduen “Lek” Chailert, who was named one of Time Magazine’s Heroes of Asia in 2005 and the Ford Foundation’s “Hero of the Planet” in 2001. She has been advocating for the rights and welfare of the Asian elephants in Thailand for years and has created a safe sanctuary for them for almost 20 years.

Faa Mai certainly seems to be enjoying herself at the Elephant Nature Park. In this video, she is seen joyously playing with blue ribbon. Although we first worry that she is simply tangled in the ribbon and is trying to shake it off, it soon becomes clear that she’s having the time of her life.

If you’re in need of a pick me up today, this 3 minute video should do the trick.


Jamie Chung Has the Cutest Reaction to the Ice Bucket Challenge


If you’ve been active on social media lately, chances are you’ve probably run into the Ice Bucket Challenge. In fact, this has caught the attention of celebs such as Lance Bass, Elizabeth Banks, Martha Stewart and most recently, Jamie Chung.

The premise is simple enough. You take a freezing bucket of ice water, dump it onto your head, record it, post it on social media and nominate some friends to do the challenge as well. I don’t know about you, but usually I find myself rolling my eyes at these “chain letter” challenges. Call me uptight, but I doubt I would choke on cinnamon, chug a can a beer or dump ice water on myself just because “everyone else is doing it.”



But as it turns out, I ought to listen to my grade school teacher about not judging a book by its cover. There is apparently much more to the Ice Bucket Challenge than what meets the eye .The challenge is an effort to use social media to promote ASL awareness. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease in the United States, is a neurodegenerative disease which results in difficulty speaking, swallowing and breathing.

What does this have to do with freezing ice water poured uncomfortably on one’s head? Well, after you are nominated to do the Ice Water Challenge, you have 24 hours to complete the challenge or you must make a donation to an ASL charity. Either way, more and more people are curious about the disease and the viral challenge has undoubtedly raised ASL awareness. According to the Huffington Post, there has been a 1,000 percent spike in donations to the ALS association since the beginning of the Ice Water Challenge.

Just a few hours ago, Audrey cover girl Jamie Chung participated in this challenge and it’s definitely a must-see. Let’s just say, if I dumped a bunch of freezing water on my head, I doubt I’d look that cute.


Chung then posted a second video challenging none other than Vanessa Hudgens! We’ll definitely be on the look out for that one.


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!


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


2. The Café Neko no Niewa in Singapore




3. Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium in London, England


4. Le Café des Chats in Paris, France


5. La Gatoteca in Madrid, Spain

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 2.13.58 PMHope Shun-Sum Chan, 2.5 years old
Favorite Asian food: Rice and ramen… separated into bite-sized portions so that i can easily use my chopsticks to nom nom it all up
Favorite Asian actress/actor: Me! No… really… me. I love acting silly or pretending to be a zombie or a kitty. Someday you will see my name in lights after the word “Starring”. Oops there I go being super Asian and overachieving… I just answered a later question, didn’t I?
My fashion advice for Asian babies: For you little girls, princess all the way. Every skirt or dress magically transforms the wearer into a princess. For you little boys, I prefer the preppy banana republic, or if you can afford it, burberry look. Slightly nerdy or studious looking is the way to my heart.
My favorite way to wake my parents up: I tend to wake up… grab the ipad… unlock it… open the Netflix app… select my profile… and pick out a cartoon to watch. My mom will usually wake up to watch it with me because she’s just as geeky as I am.  Marvel comics or Powerpuff girls are popular wake up alarms.
What I want to be when I grow up: I want to be everything… which is why I am going to go into acting. That way every time I take on a new role, I will have a new job to learn and perform. If that falls through… I am going to join S.H.I.E.L.D as an agent. Stopping the bad guys and saving the world looks like something I can stand for.

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.
