When traffic strikes during rush hour and I want something to shake the stress away, social media is one of the best pastime. Not knowing that you can also use this as a tool for entertainment. Most of the time, I tend to missed all my favorite shows because of the busy tasks ahead. But thanks to internet, I can catch it on while I’m on a road. Well, not all websites are legit to do that. Sometimes, because of the widespread of video & TV piracy in the world wide web, it tends to steal and destroy the industry. And for us Filipinos, we should know better than supporting piracy.
