Everything in EDSA is now on a slow motion with a new speed limit set by the Metro Manila Development Authority or MMDA just last Wednesday.

The new speed limit is now pegged at fifty kilometers per hour, which is ten notches lower than the previous speed limit. The decision came from the Metro Manila Council or MMC, which functions as the policy-making body of the MMDA.

On the other hand, Facebook is now launching an app that will ensure safe chatting for kids.

Known as Messenger Kids, this new app is made especially for children below 12 years of age. Through this app, a parent can create a Facebook profile for his child. Since the child’s Facebook profile will function as an extension of the parent’s account, all message requests must be approved by the parent before the child can start any communication.

As for entertainment news, the 43rd Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) Parade of Stars will be held this year in Muntinlupa, as the city is celebrating its 100th year foundation anniversary.
