Elmo and Arkin Magalona guested on a Sabadabadog episode!

Hey! Does anyone watched a recent episode of Sabadabadog?

- Elmo Magalona guested along with Arkin Magalona. It's simple really. Elmo Magalona guested on a segment with Sabadabadog character, Bebe Garu, and both Kuya Elmo and Bebe Garu showed us a move called "kandirit", jumping with the use of one foot.

- Arkin Magalona guested and on that episode, Sabadabadog can't draw and Arkin drawn as many. Our lesson was do the very best we can and don't quit! This is like a story Kuya Tonipet told us about an elephant who can't draw but doing his best to draw.

- We learned today's letter; L

- Don Kahon visited an art museum

- We discovered a new color: Ube (Purple/Violet)

Mr. Bean just survived another car crash!

Remember Rowan Atkinson? The guy who played Mr. Bean and he has the record holder of being the fastest in Top Gear's Star In A Reasonably Priced Car in a Kia C'eed category? Guess what, Mr. Bean just survived another car crash when his McLaren F1 got crashed into a tree and a lampost following with the car caught fire. It seems that the McLaren F1 is one heck of a high-risk car because it has no Traction Control and no ABS brakes. Didn't realize that Mr. Bean does not only own a green Mini but also he's a car enthusiast.

Good thing it was a minor injury and in a few days, he's okay.

Aston Martin DBS - Forza 3 Owner's View

The Bond Car from Casino Royale and
Quantum of Solace

This Cecilia Alcott itasha option looks
fit on you, Mr. Bond!

FINAL IMPRESSION: Indeed the Aston Martin DBS is Daniel Craig's Bond car of choice because Daniel Craig, as James Bond, drove it on 007: Casino Royale since 2006 and 007: Quantum of Solace since 2008. It seems that James Bond got himself another mission and this time, he takes on Forza Motorsport 3, using the Aston Martin DBS as a playable car.

Sadly, the Aston Martin DBS' Performance Index is on the S range, meaning that it does not being welcomed to a game of Tag or Last Car Standing. What it makes up is the class S races. Despite that, players are very happy trying out this kind of Bond car at all directions. The Aston Martin DBS is one heck of a fun-to-drive Aston Martin because it has the potential of being a Bond car.

Weightlifting with Mang Ben

Mang Ben lifts weights

Time for another Mang Ben! Mang Ben (Jayson Gainza) challenges some guy to some kind of weightlifting. First off, the lightweight challenge. Both the man and Mang Ben passed the challenge. Then, it's off on the middleweight. Both of them still got it. And for the final challenge; the heavyweight. The man couldn't lift it until Mang Ben's turn and managed to lift it! Mang Ben wins and he gets an extra heavy small trophy!

Babae: Alam mo nung bata ako, tuwing kasal, lagi akong tinutukso ng matatanda.
Lalake: Talaga? Anong sinasabi nila?
Babae: Sabi nila "Uy susunod na siya!" Kakainis nga yun buti tumigil sila.
Lalake: Kelan sila tumigil?
Babae: Nung minsan nagpunta kami ng libing. Sabi ko "Uy, susunod na sila!"

Scorpio - Madami ang bagyo ngayong buwan na ito. Kaya bukas hindi ka papaso. Hindi ito dahil sa baha, suspension ng pasok, o masisiraan ka ng sasakyan. Ito ay dahil masisisante ka na bukas!

Bukas naman, mapapainom ang lahat ng kaibigan mo ng TUBIG!

Your GT5 Seasonal Event Time Trial Companion - Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car

Song played on my Personal BGM: Only You (Cover Ver.) by David Choi
From the Album: Only You (Korea Special Edition)
Not your diplomat's sports car

In a previous Seasonal Event Time Trial titled the 690HP Super Speedway Indianapolis Time Trial that was started since late June and ended since early July 2011, you'll notice that the rules allow production cars up to 690HP of power and 1200kg in weight. Out of the cars with 690HP and 1200kg, there was one kind of car topped the fastest lap time of 0:47.107 and in the following Seasonal Event Time Trial called 394HP Special Stage Route 5 Time Trial (limited to production cars with tuning allowed up to 394HP and 1200kg), which runs from July 27 to August 10, there was one car that has the fastest lap time of 1:27.754. This car known as the Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car was the ultimate racing machine that conquers any kind of time trials that have that kind of regulation.

The Samurai Stig

The Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car is the street legal version of the Nissan R390 GT1, a race car built for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1997 and 1998. Sadly, only two R390 GT1 Road Cars were built and the first one is stored in Nissan's Zama factory in Kanagawa prefecture. There wasn't any customer of this million dollar car. The Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car is capable of reaching from 0-100km/h in 3.3 seconds and the top speed is 350km/h. Here in Gran Turismo 5, finding it on the Used Car Dealer is very tough and it takes about a 10% probability to obtain this rare machine. A maxed out R390 GT1 Road Car can go as much as 722hp/5800rpm of power but when it comes to Seasonal Event Time Trial regulations, players can tone it down a little to meet its expectations. Such aerodynamics and the available spoilers at the GT Auto is much possible to attain the true ferocity of the Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car. Once driven in time trials, forever smitten in time trials.

R390 GT1 Road Car
invades Spain

It may take days and budgets to find this elusive R390 GT1 Road Car but once you have encounter it on the Used Car Dealer and with enough cash, you can buy it, slap with the spoiler, change colors, maximize its power, do whatever you want. When it comes to Seasonal Events Time Trials that require production cars that goes from about 400+, 500+, 600+, or 700+hp and 1200kg in weight, just remember that once you checked the records, you won't be surprised that most GT5 players relied on the Nissan R390 GT1 Road Car. We'll just label this as the "King of Time Trials" because most players took credit for it.

Aventador is 3rd fastest in the Top Gear Test Track

Season 17 of BBC's Top Gear closes with the first run of the ultimate Lamborghini flagship, the Aventador LP700-4. Seems that Richard Hammond take a liking to the Aventador's top speed and its powerful agility. That supercar got him either Helsinki syndrome or Stockholm syndrome.

Wouldn't you believe that? And by the way, The Stig drives the Aventador while listening to some Petunia Clark music inside. In the end, the Aventador scored 1:16.5! That's faster than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport for sure! What a great way to end this season!

And by the way, the Lamborghini Aventador will be featured in the upcoming Need For Speed The Run game via the limited edition packaging. The limited edition will include cars like the Aventador, the upcoming Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and for the first time, the upcoming Porsche 911, soon to be featured at Frankfurt this September. Need For Speed The Run will be on sale this November 2011, so watch out!

Space City Art

Art Throb's Space City Art

We got another art lesson with Banana Split's Art Throb and this time he taught us how to make a Space City Art with the use of Styrofoam, lots of paper plates, carton from tissue paper, pingpong balls, and various items. First, get a Styrofoam, put the tissue paper carton as a pole that serves as a foundation, place some paper plates, whatever I didn't get any of that but that's how a Space City Art goes.

Rasheed: Johnny, kukunin ko na po yung kaldero, sabi ni tatay.
John: Oh, Rasheed, ikaw pala yan! Kamusta ka na? Nag-aaral ka pa ba?
Rasheed: Opo, college na po ako!
John: Talaga? Ano ang kinukuha mo?
Rasheed: Kaldero po!

Sagittarius - Mai-in love sa iyo ang lahat ng pinanganak sa zodiac sign na Taurus. Mayaman, mabait, at sobrang flawless ka! Asa ka pa! Ang lucky number mo ay 5 minus 72 times 280 divided by 830. Kung mahina ka sa math, malas mo!

Bukas ang ending sa basketball ay 5-3, kung anong liga, i-Google mo na lang!

Railgun PSP game to arrive this late November

It says it all. The upcoming To Aru Kagaku no Railgun PSP game will hit stores this November 2011 and this game is more like a visual novel to them. Check out the first screenshot of this game;

Looks nice, right? Some say, that limited edition packaging will include a Kuroko Shirai figma courtesy of Max Factory. Looks like we'll better start saving for this kind of packaging right before the late November release of the Railgun PSP game!

SKYACTIV crossover

Mazda CX-5

The first Mazda crossover to be armed with the SKYACTIV technology, the Mazda CX-5, has been previewed for Frankfurt launch and it will be on sale worldwide next year. Necessarily, the CX-5 is the production version of the Mazda Minagi Concept, a crossover inspired from the Shinari concept sedan that applied the new Kodo -Soul in Motion- Design Philosophy. Some say, the new CX-5 will be powered with either a SKYACTIV gasoline engine or a new SKYACTIV diesel engine. Do you think it will sell here in the Philippines soon once it was debuted in Frankfurt and in Tokyo soon?

BMW Z4 (E89) - Forza 3 Owner's View

This is how a bad businessman parks...

The Japan-only BMW Z4 Silver Top has arrived!

FINAL IMPRESSION: The second generation BMW Z4 (E89) is definitely one of my favorite Bimmers in the Forza Motorsport franchise. When it was debuted on this game via the Jalopnik Car Pack, we weren't surprised that we have gotten a chance to try out the E89.

If it wasn't for its good looks and cunning agility, none of us would have been addicted to the E89. Speaking of which, remember the special edition, Japan-only, BMW Z4 Silver Top? Yes you can mimic that by painting the E89's roof silver and the whole body black. There are tons of customization that are welcomed to Forza players who fell in love with the second generation BMW Z4. It's worth attempting it.

2012 BMW 1 Series M Coupe

There I said it. BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE! Why? Because reports said that the BMW 1 Series M Coupe, launched in the Philippines last week, had every last model sold out. Or should I say, all limited units of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe are all been spoken for, in short, SOLD OUT! Wow, that was quick.

The first two units were spoken for while the following six would arrive from 4th quarter 2011. Remember, production of the 1-Series M Coupe is limited until December 2011 so better wish to have one of these!

Another very special Samurai X

2012 Toyota Mark X 250G Relax Selection
Black Leather Limited

There was another special Samurai X in Japan. Nope, we're not meant to say that anime, it's another special edition for the second generation Toyota Mark X. Following the success of the Black Limited launched last year, the special "Black Leather Limited" is now available on the new Toyota Mark X.

The Toyota Mark X 250G Relax Selection Black Leather Limited and the Toyota Mark X 250G Four Black Leather Limited features literally Black Leather seats with Ash Brown wood paneling. They are guaranteed with luxury.

See the difference - 2012 Daihatsu Move Custom RS vs. 2011 Move Custom RS

2011 Daihatsu Move Custom RS

2012 Daihatsu Move Custom RS

This is much more fun to spot the difference but not now. For the 2012 Daihatsu Move Custom RS, the difference can be seen on the alloy wheels. Although, we do kinda miss the good alloy wheel design from the 2011 Move Custom RS because it looks nice. Now the new alloy wheels for the 2012 Daihatsu Move Custom RS kinda reminds me of those from the 2012 Subaru Stella Custom R Limited S but the alloy wheel design looks redundant and misleading.

The good news is that the 2012 Move Custom RS's fuel economy has just increased slightly. Previously the 2011 Move Custom RS 2WD's fuel economy weighs in 22.0km/L but now, the 2012 Move Custom RS 2WD's fuel economy gained an additional 0.5km/L, making it eligible for Japan's "Eco Car Genzei" system.


Lucky and Wacky jogs

Who do you want to jog with?
Lucky or Wacky? You decide...

Lucky (Jobert Austria) and Wacky (Jayson Gainza) competes again on the August 2 episode of Banana Split! To prove that one is compatible enough to jog with Wendy (Sunshine Garcia), Lucky and Wacky challenges them to a jogging contest. As the contest starts, Lucky gets away with it and while Lucky's away, Wacky wants to have Wendy for a jogging. Wacky wins!

A Japanese actor got sacked due to racist remarks against the Koreans...

Yesterday, I received a news that a Japanese actor got sacked by his agency because of his racist remarks by Twitter. In general, a Japanese actor by the name of Sousuke Takaoka got sacked by his agency, Stardust Promotion, because his tweets offended the trend of Hallyu (Korean Wave). In fact, that Japanese actor must have hate everything Korean (from K-Pop music, Korean celebs, Korean dramas and so on).

Takaoka said he accuses Japanese TV network, Fuji TV (famous for airing the One Piece and Dragon Ball animes), for airing too many Korean shows, calling this network an all-Korean channel. It happened in July 23, 2011, when that actor refused watching Fuji TV because he claims that this Japanese TV network is too Korean. He said that Korean programs brainwashed many Japanese youth and made them real bad. That was the reason why Sousuke Takaoka got kicked out by Stardust Promotion since July 28.

With Takaoka fired, we may believed that this Japanese had started the whole anti-hallyu revolution. With that, some Japanese netizens want to follow what Sousuke Takaoka did. They want TV ratings to be dropped and they want to target against everything Korean. Some say, they will use the date, August 8, 2011, as their Day of Rage. Their Day of Rage is simple; stop watching Fuji TV in order for their ratings to drop.

Japanese people are one of the foreign people who got hooked on the Hallyu (Korean Wave). They're like us. We love the Hallyu. We love K-POP, we love Korean celebs, we love Korean dramas, and we also love Korean cars (well at least the Japanese used to).

Back then, there was Hyundai in Japan but in late 2009, Hyundai decided to withdraw the Japanese market due to poor sales and focusing more on the Hyundai Universe bus. Fortunately, sale of Korean-made cars is not the last of it because GM Japan just launched the Korean-made Chevrolet Captiva for the first time in Japan. Also coming soon is the Chevrolet Sonic, known in world markets as the new Chevrolet Aveo.

If Japanese people ended up hating the Hallyu, well fine because if you do, you're missing out all of these. Stop the hating! Please! We're only doing this to keep this whole Korea-Japan friendship safe from those lifeless people who hate the Korean Wave.

2012 Subaru Stella Custom RS

Due to demand that Subaru fans want to have the turbo version of the 2012 Subaru Stella (based on the fifth-generation Daihatsu Move), Fuji Heavy Industries released the much awaited 2012 Subaru Stella Custom RS loaded with a turbocharged 660cc engine! The 2012 Subaru Stella Custom RS's turbo engine produces 64PS/6400rpm of power, 9.4kg-m/4000rpm of torque, and fuel economy of 22.5km/L (10-15 Mode) in Custom RS 2WD variants.

Art Throb's race car

In the August 1 episode of Banana Split, Art Throb (John Prats) taught us how to make a racing car using two square-shaped cans, barbecue sticks, 4 small cans, and a scissor that can cut through metal. That looks nice.

Alpha Bert and Letterman created SALAMIN!

Because of the old woman's blindness, she can't see a thing. Good thing, Alpha Bert (Jobert) and Letterman (Jason Francisco) are here to help. First off, Letterman got the whole SALA and with the word SALA, Alpha Bert added the letters MIN and voila! It's a SALAMIN!

If the compact disc age is gone...

2012 Ford Focus interior

Now what if in the future, in car entertainment systems will not have CD Players and most of them has all-digital in car entertainment systems from USB, Bluetooth, auxiliary inputs for MP3 devices, and taking advantages of cloud computing services. Just ask Ford Europe, they ditched the CD changer options on the Euro-spec Ford Focus Mk. 3 since sales of CD were dropping and digital downloads are very high in demand.

Ford's global trends and futuring manager, Sheryl Connelly, said that in-car entertainment technology is moving digital faster than any kinds of the vehicle experience and the in-car CD player is about to be obsolete like pay telephones.

If her statements were true, imagine if other car companies like Toyota, Nissan, Honda, General Motors, or even Hyundai Motor Group, would follow suit as well. If that happened, I would better go yell to a bunch of Conyo Drivers (nope, not that Wow Mali prank) and Mindless Masters (nope, not that one from Lokomoko when they did Battle of the Brainless). I mean what would exactly happened? This is getting fudge-ing serious. What the fudge? If a country like Japan rely on CD and pretty soon car companies would offer all-digital in car entertainment minus the CD players, what would they get? Fudge-ing disorder. 

Global trends might come with global disorders, if that idea from Ford Europe become a worldwide reality, what would you know? They'll spiraling out of control saying what happened to the beloved CD players? We're getting annoyed. If those anime otakus heard of that, where can they find some anime songs (openings, closings, original soundtracks, character songs, insert songs) if they're not going to place them on the CD players? If you were living in a foreign country and the anime song you're looking for is available only in Japanese iTunes but not in your iTunes, what would you expect? Well, sorry, enough's enough. Ford Europe's idea made them out of fudge-ing order. They're having disorders. They're not acting like a bunch of "Conyo Drivers" and "Mindless Masters" on the road.

I'm getting angry on that article I saw. If that trick from Ford Europe comes true and applied worldwide from other car manufacturers, swear to everyone that I'll blow my whole computer sky high. This gave me high blood. I was going to about to rip the whole book into half and man, I'm getting angry right now. Everybody's getting angry. The whole world's getting angry right now. The whole otaku community's getting angry. Sorry, enough's enough. The trend of an all-digital in car entertainment is not quite a very good idea. If they would never give way to CDs, that's when the strike will happen.

Ford Europe, you've provoked us with that kind of approach. Most music lovers love to buy songs in iTunes but for anime otakus, it's not enough. Limited availability is nothing more like an embargo to them. We really won't let that to happen because if you do, we will really don't know what to do next.

Born Electric

BMW Concept i8 and BMW Concept i3

BMW Concept i8 and BMW Concept i3 previews the newest electric cars from BMW under the BMW i Brand, which provides zero emissions and good for the environment. Both the i8 and the i3 will be produced and on sale in the year 2013 worldwide.

The i3 is more of a city compact electric car while the i8 is an electric sportscar. Never realized that BMW renamed this concept from Vision EfficientDynamics Concept to BMW Concept i8.

They'll be making a world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.

Italian Casual - Fiat 500 1.2 8V Lounge SS

Song played on my Personal BGM: Blue Zone by Shizuka Kudo
From the Album: Blue Zone

The real beauty outshines all compacts

Back in 2007, the 21st Century Fiat 500 (Cinquecento) was released and the design really paid tribute to the Dante Giacosa's 1957 original rear-engined Fiat 500 and also inspired from the 2004 Fiat Trepiuno Concept car from the 74th Geneva Motor Show. It was the world's most trendiest compact cars because of its cute design, performance, value, and fuel economy. The model featured in Gran Turismo 5 is the Fiat 500 1.2 8V Lounge SS and it is known to be the flagship model of the Fiat 500 lineup.

The Fiat 500 outshines the night

This Fiat 500 Lounge is listed as a Premium Tier car and it can be obtainable for 23,300 Credits if your A-Spec or B-Spec Level is 1. It's not quite hard to obtain that kind of Italian casual compact car but let's look at how it goes; it was powered with a 1.2L 8-valve engine that produces 68HP/5500rpm of power and 75.22ft-lb/3000rpm of torque. Overall, the normal 500 1.2 8V Lounge SS weighs in 1010kg. In the hands of the owner, he/she can tune it to the maximum power of 263HP/7300rpm, 197ft-lb/6100rpm of torque, and weighs 858kg (853 with the added Carbon Fiber Hood). With that stats, it provides a go-kart like agility to the Fiat 500.

Slipped past the San Galgano Abbey

Because the exterior colors are offered in Bossa Nova White, Pasodoble Red, and Mod Blue, you can always change the color of your own choice by stopping by the GT Auto. Change the color of the Fiat 500 1.2 8V anytime you want and feel free to slap in some new wheels and aero kits to bring out its sporty look.

Fiat 500 precision driving at Tsukuba

It will take moments to master the Nuova 500's potential but with a little practice, it will be your responsible partner on the racetracks. Above all else, it was a fun-to-drive compact car. Maybe drifting with the 500 is not a good idea because it might end up falling down the 500 or also ended up going in two wheels like I did. Well, it depends on the suspension settings but plan your suspension settings carefully!

Fiat 500 precision driving at Fuji Speedway

Be sure to find the right settings for your 500! Timing is necessary to ease out the disadvantages and a little practice with the 500 goes a long long way. After all, the new Fiat 500 featured in GT5 really taste like the real-life new Fiat 500.
