  • Patrick Garcia comforts wife Nikka who suffered miscarriage 


    Based on their Instagram posts yesterday, couple Patrick and Nikka Garcia had just lost what could have been their third child. "Everything is going to be okay," wrote the actor as caption for a photo of him hugging his wife tightly. Nikka also posted a similar photo with "ILYSB" (I love you so bad) as caption. A lot of their followers were puzzled and worried and started to ask why. "I was 3 months pregnant and we lost our baby," Nikka replied in the comments sections of both posts. Since then, messages of support, comfort, and love have poured in. Previous to that, neither of them has announced that they were expecting. Patrick and Nikka, we are sorry for your loss.  


    WATCH: How Chito Miranda talks to baby Miggy

    "Usapan ng dalawang Alfonso," new mom Neri Miranda wrote as caption to the video of her two loves having a conversation. Baby Miggy is a talker and dad Chito indulges his son. In the beginning, the Parokya ni Edgar frontman talked to his little one like any other adult, but when baby Miggy gets the hiccups, did the new dad's tone get a teeny bit higher? Awww.

    The family of three recently participated in a community garage sale in Tagaytay wherein Neri sold Miggy's ice candy. She used the hashtags #MiggysSavings, #ParaSaAlkansyaNiMiggy, #BatangBusinessMan in promoting it on social media. It looks like the little one's future is very bright -- those ice candies sold out pretty fast. 


    President Duterte to sign EO on smoking ban today
    The president of the Philippines is expected to sign an Executive Order (EO) today, March 7, that will ban smoking in all public places nationwide, according to Department of Agriculture secretary Manny Piñol. In January, Department of Health secretary Paulyn Ubial said they had already prepared a draft similar to Davao City's law that made it a "100-percent smoke-free environment in public places." All the agencies of government, including the local government, is expected to implement a no-smoking policy in all public places, not just in Metro Manila. "There will be no smoking in public places anymore, whether indoor or outdoor. Parks, bus stations, and even in vehicles. All these are considered public places," Ubial said in a previous interview. The draft EO bans e-cigarettes and vapes in public areas, while also designating smoking areas and indoor smoking areas inside establishments. (mb.com.ph)

    According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the small clear discs of the Oball Rattles can break and the tiny beads could pose a choking hazard to kids. Oball Rattles are shaped like a ball and have 28 finger holes, three of which are topped with clear discs with small beads inside. When a child plays with the ball, the beads inside the small clear discs make the rattling sound. So far, Kids II, the company that manufactures the rattles, has received 42 reports of the discs breaking, including two instances wherein the beads were found in a child's mouth and three instances in which the kid was actually found gagging. The recall covers Oball rattles in pink, blue, green, and orange, which were sold in department stores and online stores between January 2016 and February 2017. (parents.com)
