Heartwarming videos and photos of community pantries nationwide flooded social media this week. That in itself is probably the best news we’ve heard since New Year’s. After all, there’s nothing like showing community love and solidarity in the middle of a pandemic to spur everyone to keep going. But just to brighten your day a little bit more, take a look at more amusing things we’ve seen in our timelines.
“Community Pantry Sisters” spawn memes on social media
You might have heard of a group of six women dubbed by the internet as the “Community Pantry Sisters.” They went viral on social media for cleaning out an entire community pantry in Pasig — including two trays of eggs. When the organizer called them out, the women explained they were going to distribute it to their barangays.
But regardless of who they took the goods for, the action did not sit well with netizens. They quickly became the subject of many (hilarious) memes:
Attack on Tita Season 1 now streaming.
Not sure if this blockbuster had a good ending.
SamSan Tech?! You’re better than this!
Legend says she’s still looking for eggs to this day.
How many leche flans is she planning on making?

Jokes aside, remember to be mindful of others also in need whenever you get food from any community pantry. Take the movement’s slogan to heart: “Mag-bigay ayon sa kakayahan, kumuha batay sa pangangailangan.”

Love, Death & Robots Volume 2 on Netflix soon
Mark your calendars for May 14, the much-awaited second season of Love, Death & Robots will land on Netflix then. The sci-fi anthology fiction series dropped the official trailer just this week and it’s as dark and funny as we remembered.
Volume 2 will have eight episodes that will include “naked giants, Christmas demons, and robots-gone-wild.” It will have the same, if not better, level of animation. As a bonus, the streaming giant also revealed that the series is already green-lit for a third season. Official dates are yet to be announced.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings drops its first trailer
Asian representation! Marvel’s master of martial arts is finally getting his big-screen debut this year. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings take us into the world of the Ten Rings organization. Shang-Chi (Simu Liu, Kim’s Convenience) is a trained martial arts assassin who sought to escape the thug life by going to San Francisco. Of course, life doesn’t always pan out the way we planned.
The official trailer already showed some intense martial arts fight scenes — the kind that Mulan should’ve had — and featured Kpop idol Jackson Wang’s vocals on the background track.
