Uniqlo has released a range of Pokemon shirts which will hit the shelves in Singapore this 24 June 2019. What’s special is that the shirt prints were adapted from Uniqlo’s UT Grand Prix 2019 Global T-shirt design competition. Only 24 designs were selected for retail out of more than 18,000 entries submitted. So you can expect the most impressive designs from this collection. Here are some of the Pokemon-inspired tees I felt worth mentioning: Pikachu fans will be pleased with Pikachu portrayed as a cute popsicle, and there’s also one where this fan-favourite pokemon is paired with his trainer, Ash. There’s…

Recently, Snapchat has released two filters that broke the Internet. This filter takes your face and transforms it into an opposite gender. In fact, some of the transformed faces looked so realistic that they can be used as an alternate identity. This truly takes catfishing to a whole new level. This filter consists of a male and female version. As the name suggests, each respective filter will transform the subject into that specific gender. We decided to put this filter to the test by using it around the office. Here, we have Angus (on the left) without any filter on.…

After the blockbuster collaboration between Adidas Neo and The Pokemon Company, I’d thought I’ll never see another Pokemon merchandise for quite a while. But I was proven wrong with the release of Pokemon-themed shoes, caps and bags by Pony now available in Bangkok. In case you aren’t familiar, Pony is an American brand that specialises in athletic footwear, but has recently expanded towards streetwear and clothing. So the collaboration with The Pokemon Company makes sense. As a Pokemon fan, I have come across many merchandises but although these aren’t exactly the caps that Ash Ketchum wears, they are still pretty…

The internet never fails to shock me with their mind-blowing shenanigans and antics. And I might have found the most mind-blowing fad yet: Mala Peppercorn Toothpaste. This unorthodox toothpaste comes in three spicy levels ranging from medium spicy, Sichuan spicy to absurdly spicy, and is now available in packs of three on Taobao. So far, it has been well-received by netizens and sold out within two days. Fortunately, there is another company (also on taobao) now selling it. There are mixed feelings on the level of spiciness with some claiming that it is enjoyable due to the hotpot flavour present.…

Regretfully, it is harder for females to achieve this due to their anatomy and higher body fat composition compared to males, but that’s not to say you can’t get it. Everything About The V-Shaped Body The scientific term for the V-shaped body is called the Adonis Belt. The area of the Adonis Belt that creates separation between your hips and abdominals is made of the inguinal ligament and hip bone, neither of which you can train. You can, however, train the muscles around the…
