    2. New trains are hitting the MRT-3 tracks
    The first set of the Metro Rail Transit Line 3’s (MRT-3) new trains are expected to be up and running by next weekend after delays in its launch. It was initially scheduled before the end of March, but the requirements for the 5,000-mileage test run were not yet met. Currently, MRT-3 operators are undergoing training from Chinese engineers so they could expertly operate the much needed trains upon launch. The 16 new trains will also boost the MRT-3’s daily fleet, with management further aiming to increase this number to 20 by the end of April. The additional trains will double the system’s current passenger capacity to 800,000 which will give breathing room to the MRT-3’s estimated 650,000 daily passengers. (cosmo.ph)

    New book Where The Wild Moms Are is author Katie Blackburn's different take--a humorous reinterpretation, if you will--on the children's book classic Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Blackburn, also a mom to a two-year-old, loves the children's book so much that she decided to pay tribute to it in her own way. She also dedicates her version to moms everywhere, whom she also refers to as heroes. "It's a nod to how much moms do just to keep it all together," she told The Huffington Post. The book tells the story of a mom who's looking for a break in her hectic home life, and ultimately would have to decide between her escape fantasy and her family. Where The Wild Moms Are is already available on Amazon.com. (huffingtonpost.com
