♪Quando Quando Quando....♪

Guess what, Honda released two official commercials for the JDM Fit Shuttle Hybrid in case you've missed it...


I already know what's that song used on that commercial. It's titled Quando Quando Quando by Englebert Humperdinck. Wow, is that tune familiar? Or is it sounded like "Ang Pakwan Mo, Ang Pakwan Mo" from a Bubble Gang episode a few years ago?

Yeah, that's what I thought you said... (Laughing)

Renault Samsung QM5 Minor Change

2012 Renault Samsung QM5

It's been a while since the Renault Samsung QM5 debuted since December 2007 but for the 2012 Model Year, the Renault Samsung QM5 received its much awaited minor changed and labeled as "NEW QM5" to meet the demands against its rivals such as the Hyundai Tucson iX, Kia Sprotage R, and Ssangyong Korando C. For a quick refresh, the Renault Samsung QM5 uses the Nissan C Platform that was used by the Nissan Dualis. It was assembled at Busan, South Korea and later exported to other countries as the Renault Koleos. On its latest minor change, the QM5 gained a new face that brings out the star factor within reach. The new front fascia looks elegant and stylish enough for the only crossover on Renault Samsung's lineup.

2012 Renault Samsung QM5 interior

With the front face heavily modified for elegance, the interior of the QM5 is mildly revised to make it a little bit luxurious and slightly premium enough for the customers. For an added premium, BOSE Sound System is added to bring out the best audio experience for the drivers while listening to their favorite music in either radio, USB connectivity, or CD player.

Two engine types are available for the QM5: a L4 2.5 CVTC petrol engine and a diesel-fed, Euro V compliant, L4 2.0 dCi engine. The 2.5L gasoline engine packs 171HP of power, 23.0kg-m of torque, and 11.8km/L of fuel economy thanks to the XTRONIC CVT equipped on it. The 2.0L dCi engine packs 173HP of power, 36.7kg-m of torque, and 15.1km/L of fuel economy when it is equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission while 14.3km/L for the 4WD variant.

My Comment:
The newly refreshed Renault Samsung QM5 keeps its promise to be even more premium thanks to its new face but retains the quality of being the only crossover utility vehicle in Renault Samsung line-up that consists of the medium-sized SM3, executive medium-sized SM5, and the upcoming full model change of the flagship SM7 premium sedan. With its new look, how can the QM5 stand up against the Hyundai Tucson iX, Kia Sportage R, and the Ssangyong Korando C? Time will tell but be patient...

We love the new Rejoice commercial starring Kathryn and Julia!

Apparently this is best Pinoy commercial we have ever saw. The latest Rejoice Quatro Pack commercial starring Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes really have us saying "one wash, two washes, three washes, four washes for five pesos!"

A price of five pesos S.R.P. have themselves enjoy the great Rejoice freshness for four washes!

Rate ko: 4.4/5

BREAKING: The pairing between Christian and Mara will never happen in an upcoming teen show due to...

That looks odd... Because of Albie Casino (the young lad who played Christian in the 2010 version of Mara Clara) facing controversies that he broke up with Agua Bendita star, Andi Eigenmann, turns out that Albie will not be coming for the upcoming teen drama that stars Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes, two young teenage actresses who were on Mara Clara before...


Ouch. That hurts more with Albie not coming with his colleagues because of the controversy he faced... :-(

Imagine if Hatsune Miku is off stage...

Hatsune Miku in a Toyota commercial

Another Toyota commercial starring the world famous Hatsune Miku goes online in case you missed it.

On that ad, some "otaku" is messing up with Hatsune Miku's looks by adding her some mustache. Ain't she looks embarrassing with a mustache attached? Miku smacked the otaku with her leek and she said "Please stop it" in Japanese.

Kinda funny, huh?

Melai's tips to make sure nobody noticing that your fat...

Most of us, Kapamilyas, love to eat. What if we're gone obese? Should we let others think that we're fat? Never fear because Melai Cantiveros whipped us some top five tipes to make sure nobody thinks that we're fat only on M3: MELAI MO MAGWORK!

5) Wear an extra extra large shirt!

4) Bring fat friends that are much fatter than you.

3) Wear black clothes.

2) Always prepare a surprise...

1) Add some false pimples on your face.

It's okay. Pwedeng dedmahin, pwedeng i-try. Dito sa...M3! MELAI MO MAGWORK! AAAHHHHH!!!!

Top Gear expands even further to Portugal

The first issue of Top Gear Portugal!

It seems that a country like Portugal is the latest country to be put in the map of BBC Top Gear and with the first issue of Top Gear Portugal, Portuguese car enthusiasts would go gaga over their Top Gear enthusiasm. What's next? A TV show of Top Gear Portugal?!

On the first issue of Top Gear Portugal, what to expect? A showdown between McLaren MP4-12C and Ferrari 458 Italia, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, Ferrari FF, Citroen DS3 Racing, BMW 1 Series M Coupe, and others! What can I say?

If you are Portuguese and you love Top Gear more than we do, visit the official site:

Video: 2012MY Subaru Exiga Commercials starring Yosuke Eguchi

As promised, here it is. The latest Japanese commercials for the 2012MY Subaru Exiga (known in Australia as the Liberty Exiga) starring Japanese actor, Yosuke Eguchi (江口洋介).

I kinda familiar with that guy. I saw him on a Mitsubishi Outlander commercial years ago...

BMW teams up for Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept at
Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

Germany's prestige luxury car maker, BMW, teams up with Paramount Pictures for placement at Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol, the fourth installment of the Mission Impossible movies that stars Tom Cruise as the "impossible" Ethan Hunt.

On Ghost Protocol, Ethan Hunt takes on the case of the Kremlin Bombing along with his team. Hunt and the team travel across exotic locations to solve the mystery behind the Kremlin bombing but if one is caught, will be branded terrorist.

On that trailer, I saw the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept car and also there is a scene featuring the all new BMW 6-Series Cabriolet.

Wonder why did they put the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept on that movie while others gone name-guessing that this is the BMW i8?!

Word from mine: DON'T CALL IT AN i8 YET!

Anyway, this is one freaking cool trailer I've ever saw! Ghost Protocol is slated for December 2011 roadshow! Are you in?

This post will self-destruct in 5 seconds....

From bottles to pato

In another Mang Ben on the June 30, 2011 episode of Banana Split, hey! What's drinking, Mang Ben?
What's drinking, Mang Ben?
A bottle of cola? Ketchup? Milk from a bottle? Eye-mo? Hand sanitizer? Another bottle of cola?

Never mind, anyway, the battle between Alpha Bert vs. Letterman rages on! On that episode, Letterman meddles with some woman holding a PAYONG by having her head stuck with BAYONG!
Letterman turns PAYONG into BAYONG!
Alpha Bert showed up and attacks Letterman by turning SAPATOS into PATO!
Alphabert turns SAPATOS into PATO!
Pow! Letterman turned into a PATO but that's not all. He used the leftovers to make a SASH!

Avensis (Wagon) vs. Corolla Fielder

2012 Toyota Avensis Wagon

2009 Toyota Corolla Fielder

The Corolla Fielder is available exclusively at Corolla dealerships across Japan while the third-generation, imported from Great Britain, Toyota Avensis wagon will be on sale this mid-September 2011 across Toyota, Toyopet, and Netz dealerships across Japan. Those two station wagons offered from Toyota seems to be filled with decisions. I wonder which of these Toyota-made wagons is my pick?

The British have them all; Harry Potter, Mr. Bean, BBC, Jeremy Clarkson, James Bond, Top Gear, The Stig, two Getaway titles (The Getaway, The Getaway Black Monday), Teletubbies, the British Library (just like in R.O.D. Read Or Die), the Royal Couple (Prince William and Kate Middleton), William Shakespeare, soccer superstar David Beckham, comedians Harry and Paul, and everything British. (Oh, and we'll just include Cecilia Alcott from Infinite Stratos because she's British too) When I heard about the arrival of the third-generation Toyota Avensis Wagon in Japan, this is just like a trip to Aling Doring's sari-sari store to buy some chocolatiest ever Bingo. What am I saying? You're absolutely right! This wagon is just like it's prepared for some action movie set in Tokyo, Japan, where car chases are inevitable.

The true beauty comes on the new Avensis' European design and the suspension tuned for the sporty European roads makes it perfect to slip past against its enemies chasing the Avensis. Good to know that the 7-speed Manual Mode on the Avensis' CVT is just the perfect timing to turn the tables on all corners and the paddle shifters made it a nice sporty touch, making this Euro Style Wagon more agile and responsive. The main engine available is the 3ZR-FAE (4-cylinder DOHC Dual VVT-i VALVEMATIC) 2.0-litre engine that is packed with 152PS of power, 20.0kg-m of torque, and 14.6km/L (10-15 Mode) of fuel economy. I believe that this is much more fuel efficient than the Subaru Legacy Touring Wagon, but this is a different story.

This generation of the Toyota Corolla Fielder is been here for five years and it's about to be obsolete soon. The only advantage for the Corolla Fielder against the new Avensis Wagon was its fuel efficiency. It is offered with either a 1NZ-FE (4 cylinder DOHC VVT-i) 1.4-litre engine and 2ZR-FAE (4-cylinder DOHC Dual VVT-i VALVEMATIC) 1.8-litre engine. In further understanding, a single Corolla Fielder equipped with a 1.5L engine, CVT, and FF drive train can have as much as 20.0km/L of fuel economy, making it the most fuel efficient station wagon made

As proven, I would go for the Avensis Wagon because of its elegant European styling but if fuel efficiency was my thing, I would go for the Corolla Fielder.

Video: Mazda SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY commercials starring Yuto Nagatomo

We were right about Mazda's SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY and with the Demio being the first car to be equipped with SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, we met Mazda SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY's brand ambassador.

So I see, soccer player Yuto Nagatomo (長友選手) was assigned to be the brand ambassador of Mazda's SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY. Those commercials aired in Japan since early June 2011 do serve the point of having a soccer player being the new endorser of Mazda's eco-car technology that is the SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY.

Behind the scenes (and a message to Nagatomo-san):

Adopting the new catchphrase "できるはず", these commercials showcasing how it's done, well barely. For the term "SKYACTIV", the sky only is the limit once and for all.

Pureza? It sounds like Purezza...

The Adventures of Pureza

PUREZA? Wait...

Does that name sound like "Purezza" to you?

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu Purezza

Something's fishy about that name....

PUREZA? PUREZZA? You've got to be kidding me...

Well, whatever, can't wait for PUREZZA, I mean, PUREZA! Coming SOON in theaters, starring Melai Cantiveros, Jason Francisco, Bianca Manalo, Joem Basco, Martin Del Rosario, Nico Antonio, Bekimon, and Ms. Gina Pareno!

Good news for fans of both KAT-TUN and Suzuki Solio!

KAT-TUN and Suzuki Solio

KAT-TUN and Suzuki Solio

The Suzuki Solio was launched in December 24, 2010 (went on sale since early January 2011) under a massive publicity campaign with J-Pop boy group, KAT-TUN. The first commercial aired last year since the debut of the new Solio featured their song "ULTIMATE WHEELS", which was released since early February 2011 as a CD single. So far, most of them love the new Solio because of KAT-TUN!

Remember last May 2011 when the latest Suzuki Solio commercial starring KAT-TUN featured their latest song, Run For You? If you've been waiting for KAT-TUN to release the latest Suzuki Solio commercial song, the long wait is over as "Run For You" will be released this August 2011!

Are you ready to pre-order?

An updated face for the 2012MY Subaru Exiga

2012 Subaru Exiga
In case you missed it, Fuji Heavy Industries pulled the wraps of the 2012 Subaru Exiga yesterday. For the 2012 Model Year, the Subaru Exiga gained a new front face, bumpers similar to the Legacy, and a new headlamp designed to meet the needs of today's styles. Some models will receive a new instrumental cluster similar to the 2011 Subaru Forester (which now has the new FB20 engine). However, no boost on the 2.0L and 2.5L engine models.

With the introduction of the 2012 Subaru Exiga, expect to see the face of Yosuke Eguchi (江口 洋介), who will take place as the new endorser for the 2012 Exiga. The latest commercial starring Yosuke Eguchi will start...RIGHT NOW!

Kuha Mo? Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X in a 100 Days To Heaven episode!

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X in a 100 Days
To Heaven episode!

Kuha mo? A red Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X showed up in a 100 Days To Heaven episode! Notice the rear spoiler, that's the one. It was parked next to some silver car from its right.

In that episode, Anna Manalastas (Coney Reyes/Xyriel Manabat) encountered her former love interest, played by guest star Tirso Cruz III.

Who is he? And how did a little girl like Anna slapped the heck out of this man Anna saw at the parking garage earlier?

What if women taking things seriously and men are sassy?

In Banana Split Daily Servings' Ano Nga Kaya, Pooh imagines what if women taking things seriously and men are sassy.

2011 Suzuki Swift

You're looking at the all new, 2011 Suzuki Swift. It was launched in Japan since September 2010 and it awarded last year's RJC Car of the Year. Now, the winner of the 2010-2011 RJC Car of the Year is coming to the Philippines this early July 2011! However, instead of the 1.2L engine offered from the Japan-spec Swift, we will be getting a 1.4-litre engine, which is bad news for us.

After witnessing some spy shots, it's good to know that the all new 2011 Suzuki Swift is coming right to the Philippines this weekend but the new edgy design didn't appeal more. When the 2011 Swift debuts this weekend, what do you think?

Something special for the British representatives...

Cecilia Alcott from Infinite Stratos

Hey! Remember me? It's me! Cecilia Alcott, the British representative cadet from the IS School! Hope everyone remembered me. Guess what? In my home country, the United Kingdom, there is a special IS made only for British people like me who would want to go out in style this summer! Care to guess what that is special IS?

2012 Lexus IS250C Limited Edition

Hmmm? That's not the "IS" I was talking about, you know, the Infinite Stratos kind of IS, not the Lexus kind of IS! Well, whatever. Toyota Motor United Kingdom unveiled a special edition IS250C designed to cater British customers during hot summer days and I felt envy about this. The special edition IS250C comes with black and red semi-aniline leather interior that makes it more stylish. It even comes with an 18-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, one-touch easy access for the back, adjustable front seats, and much much more for this special edition! It costs 39,990 British Pounds Sterling plus tax! (Laughing)

♫What a great way to start one hot summer getaway in the Great Britain!♫

Well, that's it for now! See ya!
