But there are also countries like Tonga and Romania which have already celebrated it. Well, for us here at Locanto, every day where a father shines and shows his love for his children is Father's Day. Here is our favorite video from Facebook.

Holy Week? What's That?

In major Christian countries like the Philippines, Holy week starts today, the Sunday before Easter. What do people usually do around this time and how significant is the photo below to people who take the holy week at heart?

This spring article has been posted on behalf of our very own Boston girl, Mary who loves Rhubarb and is trying to catch up with the gardening styles of Germany. This beautiful face on the right claims she has Hulk hands. She explains why below.

Pinterest told me that I could be a champion gardener. I simply needed a vintage-looking shovel, red polka dot apron, wobbly straw hat, and soon all of Instagram would seethe in jealously over my horticultural prowess.

Two hours, a pair of ripped jeans and one bloody forearm later, I threw in both the towel and apron. I didn't have a green thumb, I had Hulk hands, and they had just brutally strangled all known life-forms from my fantasy flower oasis. Pinterest, you are a dirty little liar.
LocSing.png In this day and age of high consumerism, classifieds sites like Locanto Singapore are a big help to regular people who want to get the best items at significantly lower prices. How? By buying second-hand items or used stuff being sold in your local community. Keeping up with trends is now made easier for wise buyers.

An item doesn't have to be brand new to be appreciated. By selling your pre-owned, pre-loved items on Locanto, you earn extra money. This enables you to buy other items you dream of owning. You can even swap items with people in your community.

South Africa, located at the southern tip of the continent, is not only a major tourist destination but has also turned into a major expat hub in recent years. It's usually the beautiful landscape and the great weather that draws people from all over the world towards the rainbow nation. However, finding work in South Africa and securing a work permit can be quite a challenge.
Today, October 16, is the day in which we celebrate World Food day, in honor of the foundation of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) established in 1945.
