Japanese Spa Allows You to Bath in Wine 

In Hakone, Japan, there’s a spa that offers a unique bathing option to remove your stress and tension. As strange as it may seem, the Yunessun Spa Resort allows its customers to bath in a pool of wine.

This new way to unwind not only benefits wine lovers who can enjoy a glass or two wine while soaking up. Apparently, wine contains anti-oxidant resveratol, which actually protects the skin from environmental damage.

Customers get to  enjoy a refreshing bath as fresh red wine is poured on the pool on a daily basis.

Aside from wine, the Tokyo-based spa also offers peculiar beverage-based baths including green tea, fresh-brewed coffee, as well as the sake bath. While the green tea bath contains antioxidants that will keep your skin look younger, the fresh-brewed coffee pool is believed to combat skin-puffiness. The sake bath, which contains kojic acid, decreases age and sun spots.

Moreover, customers can also try the Dead Sea Salt pool which will allow them to experience a relaxing buoyancy while bathing.

What is Onsen?

Because Japan is volcanically active country, numerous hot springs or onsen can be found across the country.

Although many onsen are found in the countryside, several onsen facilities are available in major cities including Tokyo. Onsen, which refers to bathing facilities and inns near hot springs has become a central feature of tourism in Japan.

The water in an onset must be 25 °C or warmer before being reheated and must contain 19 designated chemical elements including minerals such as sulfur, iron, and metabolic acid. Many believe that onsen water has healing properties and can treat diseases such as diabetes, constipation, and menstrual disorders.

Some types of onsen include hydrogen carbonate onsen, sodium chloride onsen, sulfur onset, and iron onsen.

Netizen Shares Creepy Experience as ‘Ghost’ Rides Grab Taxi

Do you believe in ghosts? While many of us no longer believe in ghosts, saying that those are just products of someone’s vivid imagination, there are also things that are difficult to explain — and some can even be detected by the lens of a modern camera! Wow.

Pilipino Star shares the creepy experience of netizen Sam Andrew Lee when a ‘ghost’ rides the Grab taxi he got.

The post has since gone viral — and for good reason.

According to Lee, he was just heading to Oasis and had hailed the Grab car at exactly 12 midnight last June 11 when he noticed that there was another passenger inside the vehicle when he got inside.

A few minutes into the ride, after checking that the other passenger was still sitting at the third row, he asked the driver why he was sharing the ride with another passenger when he didn’t actually choose GrabShare but a GrabCar!

Much to his surprise and fear, the driver was actually surprised with his question and told him there was no other passenger in the car, only him. When Lee turned around, the other passenger was gone!

That was the first hint that the other passenger was a ghost or some lost soul; however, minutes into the ride, the other ‘passenger’ appeared at the back row again! While he did feel a bit scared now and could feel the ghost’s strong presence at the back, Lee was actually brave enough to take a selfie and really wished the ghost would manifest itself in the picture.

When he finally took the photo, the entity could be clearly seen in the background; though it was grey and was looking rather grim.

That’s rather scary, right? Lee showed the photo to the driver who got really scared at this point, admonishing him for showing him the photo and telling him he should probably get off near the driver’s house, then the driver will just find another GrabCar for him — but Lee was too scared as well to agree to that. Oooops.

Judge Evicts 30-Year-Old Man from Parents’ Home

In a rather strange case, a 30-year-old man was evicted from his parents’ home after they sued him for refusal to move out. The judge took his parents’ side and ordered him out but he cries foul, saying he deserves to be given at least 6 months to prepare for the move. Oh. Sounds a bit strange, yes?

Michael Rotondo, 30, lives with his parents in Camillus, near Syracuse in upstate New York.

He used to live out of his parents’ home back when he had a full-time job but when he lost that some 8 years ago, he moved back in – and never moved out again. He runs a website business but according to his parents, he refuses to pitch in with the bills and groceries; he doesn’t even do his own laundry, his parents claimed.

Tired of having to put up with him at their home, Mark and Christina Rotondo tried to persuade him to leave but he refused. Michael thinks he is entitled to live at their house because they are his parents, after all.

The two then decided to issue him several eviction letters but he ignored each one. His parents would even give him a list of things he should do so he could get a job and support himself yet he continues to ignore that, too.

At one point, his frustrated parents even paid him $1,100 just so he would move out and find himself an apartment but though he accepted the money, he still didn’t move out! Ah. We could just imagine his parents’ frustration.

After everything else failed, Mark and Christina took their son to court but the local town court told them the matter was beyond their hands and they had to take the case to the Supreme Court. Lucky for the couple, they were able to file a petition with the state court whose judge was sympathetic with their plight.

State Supreme Court justice Donald Greenwood first tried to persuade Michael to move out of his parent’s house on his own accord but when he continued to refuse, he issued the man an eviction notice which the latter called as outrageous.

Michael argued that he is entitled to live at least 6 months more at his parents’ home. But with the eviction notice, he has no choice now but to leave.

Dad Goes Viral for Clearing Snow While Wearing Shorts

While everyone else in the temperate zone is complaining about the extended winter that brought a lot of snow even in spring, there is this dad of four in Wausau, Wisconsin, who doesn’t seem to mind the cold snow storm.

Patrick Schmidt was recently pictured wearing just a pair of cut-off jean shorts and gloves while clearing the snow from his driveway. The prankster dad thought that the image would entertain his wife; thus, he didn’t put on more clothes even though the temperatures had dropped down to 27 degrees Fahrenheit (-2.8 degrees Celsius).

As to his choice of clothes, he said that the shorts were the first pair of pants he had seen in his closet. He figured it wouldn’t hurt to use the clothing item for the day.

I figured it would entertain my wife, I didn’t really think much of it and I didn’t really think much of it, we live on a little cul-de-sac,” Patrick admitted.

They were the only ones there, I went downstairs, had breakfast with the family and I knew that I could snow blow or I could go change and I was like ‘oh, it’s only 27, so I can probably just do it with a pair of gloves and boots on.

The image would have been buried in obscurity as his wife laughed but this dad would soon take the internet by storm when a neighbor snapped a photo and posted it on social media.

Nicole Thomas was cooking breakfast at the time when she spotted Patrick. After she stopped laughing, she immediately told her husband, Mark Thomas, to snap a photo of Patrick. While they weren’t surprised with the outfit because Patrick had always been a prankster, she knew this one was gold.

Can you out-do this? I don’t know. We’ll have to see what he comes up with I guess,” Nicole mused.
