#ThewRap: Videos to watch this week, November 13-19, 2017

Must-watch videos from this week










Dear Rappler reader,

The week started with a bang as heads of states who flew in over the weekend attend the 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit, which is being hosted by the Philippines. For the full blow-by-blow on that go to Rappler’s special page. Some issues were resolved in the sidelines of ASEAN, after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said it’s now "theoretically possible" to get back Canada trash dumped in the Philippines. Trudeau and Duterte got along well and even did a press conference together, until the Canadian head mentioned human rights as a concern. The Philippine president told media all about it and said it was “an official insult.” All in all, it was not all talk and handshakes during the summit, light moments peppered the diplomacy-filled event, especially with President Duterte and US President Donald Trump hitting it off. A lot of credit goes to the police force which enforced law and order and ensured the security of the heads of states. ASEAN ended with a little downer, when officials were forced to cancel a concert due to overcrowding and people fainting.

The rest of the week saw the return to normalcy after classes and work resumed post-ASEAN, only to be torn by shocking news of a woman losing her arm in an accident in one of the metro trains.

For this Sunday, watch this inspiring video of a craftsman who did not let the fact that he has no hands get in the way of his creativity.

Below are the big stories we think you shouldn't miss.
