In order for a story to get itself the recognition, it deserves you need to actually have an incentive that attracts the media’s attention.

Luckily, however, some are just impossible to not talk about and gush over, such as the case for today’s report which comes to us from a site known as An-ho from the Taichung City from Taiwan.
