6. DALGONA COFFEE

Everyone became a coffee connoisseur when Dalgona Coffee (Fluffy Coffee) took our feeds by storm. Everyone was so competitive creating their own versions, and posting their IG worthy photos of it. But in reality, this coffee includes an amount of instant coffee and sugar nobody should ever be allowed to take before 9am. Yep, photos and videos creating it are cute and enticing, But is it worth the sugar comedown? I think not!

5. ZOOM PARTIES

Yes, video-get together is a thing now, thanks to Zoom! An app that made virtual meetings and reunions possible. With easy access for the app (All you have to do is download!) You can now invite your friends for a virtual chikahan and “e-numan”! Plus this is also a big help for employees who are working from home, for meetings and alignments! Live shows via zoom are also a thing, for added entertainment!

1. TIKTOK VIDEOS

And the most trending app this quarantine goes to, Tiktok! Though this app was launched a few years back, But it grew so fast this ECQ because it presents another platform for online sharing. It allows everyone to create short videos, like dancing or recreating popular scenes from “hugot movies” plus you can use music, filters, and some other features! Sometimes it’s funny, or cringey, BUT EVERYONE WOULD AGREE THAT THIS APP IS ADDICTIVE. Tiktok provides a platform for users to express themselves in a very creative way, and everyone from our fave celebrities to influencers in all ages, are so hooked!
