Disney Princesses Singing In Their Native Languages
English is not the native tongue of Disney Princesses. Everyone has grown up with Disney Princesses because they are the most innocent form of childhood entertainment. With the fantastic movies comes even better songs which make them so appealing. Your infatuation with them carries on into adulthood and before you know it, you're sitting in your living room watching the movies singing along with your own children. Crazy right? Well, here's the thing, English is the default language, not the native one. All Disney Princesses have come from other countries other than Pocahontas who was a Native American in North America (present day USA). It brings up a really interesting change because when you watch the Disney movies in their native languages, it has an entirely new meaning because it's authentically and historically correct. Disney Americanizes our movies through using English and we forget that languages play a huge role in presenting emotions, interactions, conversations, and without a doubt, our singing. One of the biggest trends on the internet is hearing a Disney Princess sing her hit song with her own native finesse instead of a defaulted English one. Enjoy and really take notice on the differences in emphasis and fluidity of the lyrics. Because of changed language, the songs also have different lyrics to fit the melody which slightly alters the song even if it has a similar universal meaning. Disney is genius. What do you think?

The Pawprint I can't even write a proper description for this one because there's a stinkin' cute long-haired dachshund staring at me. I'm weak. The Stegosaurus Not only does the style keep your cat comfortable during summer months, but the 'plates' on his back will erect every time he gets mad. (WHY DON'T CATS LOOK LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME???)

The price of the styles begin at roughly $20 USD and is determined based on breed and complexity of design. With that being said: Would you buy one of these styles for your pet?

Funky Taiwanese Food: Would You Try Them?
You guys know that I've been watching Moon River. I came across a scene yesterday where they filmed at the popular Taiwanese Night Market and thought about delicious food I can only eat in Taiwan. The following might look and sound gross but it's actually VERY delicious. Coffin Bread (棺材板; Guan Cai Ban) This is like the American version of chowder in bread. This is a popular street food in Tainan, south of Taiwan. The name was inspired by the coffin-like toast cutoff and the lid. You can pretty much put anything inside the bread but the classic recipe uses a seafood chowder. Stinky Tofu (臭豆腐 ; chou dou fu) It smells pungent but it's only momentary. Once you take a bite, you wouldn't notice the aroma anymore. Although, some people who are not used to fermented food might this unbearable. It's not that bad! 1,000 Year Old Egg (皮蛋; pidan) It's not really a thousand year old. The more standard term for this food is century egg. It is made with duck egg preserved in clay with seasonings. It usually takes about two weeks of process to achieve the translucent black jelly and creamy yolk. In taiwan, it can be eaten alone, with soy sauce and tofu, or diced in porridge. @biancadanica98 @AimeeH @petname83 @Aripendragon @VeronicaArtino @AlyssaGelet818 @EmilyPeacock @BluBear07 @JamiMilsap @PrettieeEmm @merryjayne13 @larosamong @lovetop @KpopGaby @pharmgirlerin @lcr4562 @SaraHanna @TaraJenner @Starbell808 @LocoForJiyong @VKookie47 @CandaceJordan @punkpandabear @JessicaJudy @P1B2Bear @MyAffairWith @ChosenKnight @JacksonWangxme @Kpopfangirl15 @luna1171 @deefran @sherrysahar @IMNII1 @yaya12
These Street Vendors Engage In A Battle Of The Bods.
So a few months ago, I wrote a card about the McDonald's Goddess, a Taiwanese fast food cashier that took the Internet by storm for her good looks and adorable sing-songy voice. Today, it was brought to my attention that there's options out there for the ladies too - in the form of hunky street vendors. Ladies, meet the guys serving up your streetside groceries with a little extra eye candy. (Warning: There's no way to write this without sounding like an issue of TeenBeat magazine. Gentlemen, please divert your eyes.) So the trend hit the Internet all thanks to Chen Yi-Tin, a Taiwanese part-time model turned street vendor that had his picture shared by women in Taipei after spotting him selling bean curd in a local market. Since blowing up the Chinese blogging site Weibo last summer, Yi-Tin's career's been on serious lock, grabbing him plenty of Instagram followers and campaigns modeling anything from fitness clothes to underwear. (GET ITTTT.) Not to be outdone, Malaysia soon called everyone's attention to their own male-model-slash-vendor Jordan Yeoh, who saw what Yi-Tin was going in Taiwan and thought, "Hey, why not go help my aunt and uncle with their durian stand?" And then, boom. Overnight Internet celebrity and fitness guru. Asia's social media game doesn't mess around. If you don't know what it is, durian is a fruit that smells a whole lot like used diapers. So I guess if your durian shake can still bring the ladies to the yard even though you smell kind of like where Chiquita Banana would go to die, you must be really, really, ridiculously good-looking. The vendor dude 'arms race' (pun intended) continued with Wang Xiang Hong, another Taipei native who's been pulling in droves of female consumers. As a busy college student, Xiang Hong never modeled professionally and was simply helping out a friend whose fruit stand was understaffed for a few months. However, Xiang Hong did get to enjoy a brief modeling career before enlisting in the military shortly after. Lastly, there's a Taiwanese cake shop employee simply known as "Cake Boy". (It sounds better in Taiwanese, I'm sure. Trust.) He first caught local attention after picking up part-time work at a streetside cake shop while attending college for sports, his specialty being volleyball. He began to go viral on Weibo after women visiting the shop noted his good looks pose something of a striking resemblance to various Korean pop stars popular in the region. (I know we've got some K-Pop fans here on Vingle. Do you ladies agree?) So what do you guys think of the hunky street vendor trend? Is it shameful vanity or smart business?
