    "We've been building this for more than a year now mula ng maisip namin kung anong klaseng bahay ang gusto namin. At eto na nga at malapit na malapit na matapos. Kahit kulang kulang pa ang gamit sa loob, gusto namin na dito na macelebrate ang Pasko sa aming new house," the singer actress wrote on Instagram. Her husband Marc Escueta said on his own Instagram post, "Hindi naging madali yung proseso ng construction pero buti nalang nandiyan si Jolina para damayan ako, at si Pele ang aming greatest inspiration." It looks like the Escuetas will be spending the holidays in their new home after all -- Jolina's recent posts show that they've already put up their Christmas tree. (pep.ph)


    3. DOTr rolls out new elevators for MRT-3 stations
    The Department of Transportation (DOTr) announced on December 22 that it has installed 27 out of 32 new elevators in Metro Rail Transit Line 3 (MRT-3) stations, and that they will all be operational starting today, December 23, just in time for the last-minute holiday shopping. "The elevators would relieve passengers from carrying heavy bags especially this Christmas," said MRT-3 General Manager Deo Manalo via a statement, adding that senior citizens, pregnant women, and persons with disability will be given priority. The move is part of the efforts to improve overall train station experience and hopefully shorten the long queue lines during peak hours. The remaining five elevators are still being replaced, and are expected to be operational by February 2017. (gmanetwork.com)

    It's White Cheesecake! The new flavor seems to have a white chocolate base, coated with pink and white candy. According to Impulsive Buy, some U.S. consumers have already spotted this new M&Ms flavor in stores. The packaging looks more apt for Valentine's rather than the holidays, so it's possible that it might have just been released early, for a limited time, until around February to March next year. M&M's has been tinkering with a lot of different flavor ideas over the last couple of years, from ice-cream candies and coffee nut, to gooey caramel fillings instead of the usual chocolate.
