2012 Kia K5 Hybrid

Something to put Auto Review to shame!

Move over Ron de los Reyes from Auto Review and Ray Butch Gamboa from Motoring Today, because GMA News TV (GMA's cable news channel that rivals ABS-CBN's ANC and TV5's Aksyon TV) is set to make a new motoring TV magazine slated to air this October 22, Saturday, at 9:00AM Philippine Standard Time.

Titled TURBO ZONE, this motoring TV magazine is hosted by Ramon Bautista (comedian and car enthusiast) and Vernon B. Sarne (Top Gear Philippines' editor in chief). It was directed by Marnie Manicad, who was behind the international feature film, Dance in the Steelbars.

I saw the trailer and it looks cool to see a Maserati GranTurismo and the Jaguar XKR racing and we saw how the power of the 4x4 work and the way of the armored car, but that's just the beginning.

Catch TURBO ZONE on GMA NEWS TV this October 22, Saturday, at 9:00AM Philippine Standard Time!

That's what it counts and that's why it has the most overacting storyline fans remembered but thanks to Rie Kugimiya's role for being Astarotte Ygvar, they were fell in love with that anime series.

First there were the TV size versions of opening theme (Tenshi no Clover by Aimi) and closing theme (Manatsu no Photograph by Azusa), and the background musics, which original music score by Twinpower. Okay, what's the gap going to be? A big one? An embarrassing one? A long one? On board....amazingly though listening to Astarotte no Omocha OST is the kind of suggestive theme you're doing at the comfort of your condo.

LEAKED! The face of the Mira e:S (tentative)!

The face of the 2012 Daihatsu Mira e:S
was leaked via leaflet! IS THIS IT?

A certain Minkara blogger leaked the face of the upcoming Daihatsu Mira e:S (tentative), coming this Autumn 2011. That leaked leaflet shows a face similar to the latest Perodua MyVi/Daihatsu Sirion sold in Malaysia and Indonesia and it has a new emblem. We can see the inside but barely because a certain Minkara blogger snapped the photo of the face but don't worry.

To refresh your memory, check out the Daihatsu Mira e:S spyshots:

If these are correct, this could be the Daihatsu Mira e:S. Daihatsu claims that this is the "3rd Eco Car" and it features new energy saving technology (e:S Technology) that brings the fuel economy to a record-high 30km/L in a JC08 scale. We sure know that the car's fuel economy in the 10-15 Mode scale is higher than the Mazda Demio 13-SKYACTIV. Why? 32km/L. That's what counts.

Face painting with Art Throb! All we need is a small paintbrush and face paints! First off, try mixing with lots and lots of colors. Say if you want a face paint that looks like a tiger, Art Throb mixed all the colors and then READY...AIM....FIRE at her face! Instant Face Paint! Cool!

Senator Bhong Revilla (Manuel Chua)

In today's ANG TV PATROL, looks like Senator Bhong Revilla (Manuel Chua) gets unhappy about the Helmet Law. Yep, helmets don't move you know...

Boss: Rasheed, bakit wala nang laman ng kahon ng toothpick?
Rasheed: Di ko po alam sir.
Boss: Baka naman inuubos mo.
Rasheed: Aba'y hindi po sir. Kapag ako gumagamit ng toothpick, binabalik ko po sa kahon. Sayang eh...

Idling stop is added on the Suzuki Swift ZC72S

2012 Suzuki Swift XL Idling Stop

It's been a year since its debut in Japan but the new Suzuki Siwft (ZC72S) wants to make it more fuel efficient so that's why the XG and the XL variants of the JDM Suzuki Swift gets the all new Idling Stop function, a first from Suzuki.

IDLING STOP for Suzuki

Slated to be available this September 13 at your nearest Suzuki dealerships, the new Idling Stop variants give the Swift's K12B engine a fuel economy boost of 25km/L on the 10-15 Mode scale and 21.8km/L on the JC08 Mode scale. What amazes them is that the idling stop function shuts off the K12B engine automatically when stopped at the red light.

Price for the Suzuki Swift XG Idling Stop starts at 1,338,750 Japanese Yen while the XL Idling Stop starts at 1,412,250 Japanese Yen!

3.3 GDI

2012 Hyundai Grandeur HG330 Celebrity

2012 Kia K7 3.3 GDi

The Hyundai 5G Grandeur and the Kia K7 finally received their much awaited 3.3L GDi engine! The new 3.3. GDi engine has a power output of 294PS/6400rpm, 35.3kg-m/5200rpm of torque output, and the fuel economy of 10.9km/L. They are both equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission.


Wow, both the Kia K7 and the Hyundai Grandeur gained the most powerful V6 engine as an advantage to take out the likelihood of Renault Samsung's ALL NEW SM7! Because of such conditions in our country, don't expect seeing both of these at the Philippines soon! I wonder if some of our gray market buddies such as Hancars or Pitstop Motors got that memo...

Unlawful Collaboration?!

Globe Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini

Hey guys! Does any keep on using Globe Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini? Bad news, an Italian fashion firm (not to be confused with an automobile maker behind the Miura, Countach, Diablo, Murcielago, and the latest Aventador), Tonino Lamborghini declared that the Globe Tatto Tonino Lamborghini is FAKE!

According to the press release, Tonino Lamborghini called the Globe Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini a fake and it has done unauthorized use. Also, the advertising with Swiss-Filipino racer, Marlon Stockinger, and the tagline "Feed Your Need For Speed" was too deceitful and unlawful and it created confusion between Tonino Lamborghini (fashion brand) and Automobil Lamborghini S.p.A. (automobile manufacturer). Oh my gosh, STAR CONFUSION!

Earlier, Globe Telecom informed its Facebook fans that they have authorized use of the Tonino Lamborghini name and logo via Primo Mobile, a Singaporean company Globe claims to be that they're the master license and franchise but Tonino Lamborghini denied Globe's purpose.

Tonino Lamborghini informed its Facebook fans that Primo Mobile is only granted a trademark license, not as a master license and franchise. They said that the license agreement was terminated by Tonino Lamborghini a long time ago....

Porsche will be not included on upcoming Forza 4

Earlier, I read the Forza Motorsport 4: Under the Hood article on the official Forza Motorsport website. I wouldn't believe that the next Forza will have lots of good features, new way of leveling up, more choices, and much much more. However, there is somewhat bad news about licensing of Porsche on this upcoming sequel

"This kills me. While Forza Motorsport 4 will feature RUF, it will not include Porsche cars. As many of you know, since the beginning of the Forza franchise, the Porsche license has been available only through a sub-licensing deal with EA. In Forza 3, we were able to feature more than 35 different Porsche models by offering to collaborate with EA. For Forza 4, we were looking forward to adding even more Porsche cars, and we were especially looking forward to featuring multiple Porsche experiences in our new Autovista mode. In the end, however, EA couldn’t see their way towards collaborating again.  
We’ve asked our contacts at EA to reconsider their position frequently and regularly over the last 18 months. We also reached out to various influential people in gaming to lobby on our behalf, and on your behalf, but that was to no avail.  
In our business, we stay friendly with all of the manufacturers and licensors necessary to deliver players rich and innovative automotive experiences. As you’d expect, this includes quite a few key people in Porsche circles. To make sure we tried everything, we consulted with these advocates and were happy to find they were already aware of the situation and lobbying from within on behalf of Forza 4--and, despite the result, we thank them for their efforts.  
While we respect EA’s need to run their business as they see fit, we’ve regularly collaborated in the past and hope we can find our way back to that approach. Forza had the exclusive license for all Ferrari cars, for example, on the Xbox and PC platforms. But at the end of the day, we’ve always found that we just weren’t willing to block other racing games from having Ferraris outright, as we believed that this would do nothing but hurt the racing ecosystem. 
I’m very sorry for all of this. Fans shouldn’t have to think about any of this – you should just be able to drive Porsches and Ferraris in the games you love. Porsche makes wonderful cars and I’m sorry that we won’t have them in Forza 4. As I mentioned earlier, we have added three RUF cars in Forza 4. RUF is a manufacturer in their own right, not simply an aftermarket mod shop—they completely remanufacture and enhance the models that they start from, and the results are unique, incredibly fast, and the cars look great. Losing more than 35 Porsche models is a lost opportunity for Porsche fans (as well as a lost opportunity to make future Porsche fans), but I hope that Forza 4 players understand and enjoy the new makes and models that have taken their place."

Well that was disappointing. I've enjoyed driving 997 Porsche 911 models, the Cayenne, and the Panamera while it lasted. Why did they'll not include it? That was sad for Porsche fans hearing this announcement. About more than 35 Porsche models will be dropped but what will it come up to the missing 35?

Forza Motorsport 4 will be released this mid-October 2011.

Interested for another KORE-PINO words?

Interested for another KORE-PINO words? Get ready because Ryan Bang told us another:

The Korean word of "Good" or "Mabait" is "Joh Eun" but it sounds like "Doon" or "There". Then, the Korean word of "Bahay" or "House" is "Jip" but it sounds like the Jeep!


Giant Mosquito

And here's another gagged photo from "ANG TV PATROL" showing a giant mosquito because of the report about rising cases of dengue.

Steve Jobs declared quits!

STEVE JOBS CALLS IT QUITS! Why? Because Steve Jobs resigned for being the CEO of Apple Inc., ending his decade-reign of being the head of the computer giant. Because of that, his position will be passed on to Tim Cook, a Chief Operating Officer and longtime heir apparent.

Apparently, Steve Jobs took a medical leave since January because of the cancer he had. Never though he had a longtime fight against his disease since 2004. Good thing, Tim Cook does Steve Jobs' job while he was on a sick leave. 

We seek him as an inspiration that brought the computer giant upbeat and crushed Microsoft ten-fold. 

Don't panic and remain calm. Even though he resigned from being CEO, he's still the chairman.

TRD LEXUS IS F "Circuit Club Sport Parts" Information

Houki Shinonono from Infinite Stratos

Houki Shinonono again! I really sorry why I have to interrupt because I really "really" forgot something to tell you. There's also something written on this notebook about a special "Circuit Club Sport Parts" for the Lexus IS F courtesy of Toyota Racing Development (TRD)!

TRD LEXUS IS F "Circuit Club Sport Parts"

TRD LEXUS IS F "Circuit Club Sport Parts"

Toyota Racing Development finally created a special "Circuit Club Sport Parts" for the Lexus IS F, using the knowledge of motorsports to create a race-inspired performance only suitable for the tamed racing drivers throughout Japan. This new breed of performance is tested from the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis and wind tunnel experiments to ensure the highest potential this new kind of performance can handle and now the "Circuit Club Sport Parts" is now available for the first time on the Lexus IS F!

According to Toyota Motor Corporation, a total of 16 special parts are available such as Carbon Fiber Hood, Carbon Fiber Front Spoiler, Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser,
Carbon Fiber Rear Wing, 2Way damping force adjustable suspension kit, Fixed damping force suspension kits, Aluminum forged wheel set,
Magnesium forged wheel set, Limited-slip Differential, Brake Pads, Carbon Interior Panel Kit, Titanium Exhaust, and Performance Damper Kit.

Getting the special Circuit Club Sport Parts can be in separate or in three performance packages. Let's see, um, for Stage 1, you'll get everything what I said except for the 2Way damping force adjustable suspension kit and LSD. Stage 1 can't give you the two optional forged wheels. The Stage 1 Performance Package will cost about 3,586,485 Japanese Yen. Now, how about Stage 2? On this stage, you'll get everything from Stage 1 and you'll also get two goodies such as LSD and a Forged Aluminum Wheel Set. Stage 2 will cost about 4,676,385 Japanese Yen. Stage 3? Well, this is my favorite Performance Package because all of the equipment are included, Forged Magnesium Wheel Set is placed, LSD is equipped and the fixed damping suspension kit has been replaced with a 2Way Suspension kit! The ultimate package costs about 5,568,885 Japanese Yen! This 2Way Suspension kit will serve as the Amatsuki and the Karaware of the suspension system and wait 'till this one can perform like the Akatsubaki!

There was also an exclusive color (and I'm sure Charlotte Dunois would like that) called CCS Orange. The CCS Orange is available exclusively at the Circuit Club Sport Parts but for more information about the pricing, please come and see your nearest Lexus dealer.

That's all I can say! Thank you and enjoy the new TRD LEXUS IS F Circuit Club Sport Parts!

Lexus IS F '12 Information

2012 Lexus IS F

Since I can't explain something about what are the changes happened at the 2012 Lexus IS F, I'll welcome some special guest back to explain what's what...

Houki Shinonono from Infinite Stratos

Hello there again! It's me! Houki Shinonono from Infinite Stratos! I was very pleased to see that I heard that there were upgrades for my IS! Let me take a look at my notebook okay? Uncle Yukihiko Yaguchi said that for the current upgrade for the Lexus IS F, there are new SHOCK ABSORBERS equipped to achieve high maneuverability and driving stability. Also, the suspension and coil springs such as a BOUND STOPPER has been optimized to improve riding comfort and driving performance. A newly designed BBS 19-inch forged aluminum wheels was added as a manufacturer's option. There is a new "RED & BLACK" interior color and a new exterior color called "MERCURY GREY MICA" added but I usually prefer a "Red Mica Crystal Shine" because it does look like my Akatsubaki but now with the new "RED & BLACK" interior color, it does feels like it's complete! (Seems that my sis did something else on my IS!)

However, according to Toyota Motor Corporation, because of the upgrades, the Suggested Retail Price for the Lexus IS F '12 is now 7,950,000 Japanese Yen, a 50,000 Yen hike.

That's all what it said on this notebook I got earlier, until then, bye now!

Tween Academy: Class of 2012

Tween Academy: Class of 2012

Year: 2011

Filmmaker: GMA Films and SMDC

Cast: Barbie Forteza, Joshua Dionisio, Jake Vargas, Bea Binene, Lexi Fernandez, Louise delos Reyes, Alden Richards, Kristoffer Martin, Joyce Ching, Derrick Monasterio, Elmo Magalona

This movie is a side story of the hit GMA TV series Tween Hearts and yes, the TWEEN-vasion has finally begun in Tween Academy: Class of 2012. In this movie, the teen stars of GMA such as Barbie Forteza, Joshua Dionisio, Jake Vargas, Bea Binene, Lexi Fernandez, Louise delos Reyes, Alden Richards, Kristoffer Martin, Joyce Ching, Derrick Monasterio, and Elmo Magalona come together to mingle your enthusiasm with some romance, drama, laughter, and some music that you'll surely enjoy!

Because of the success of the movie, it was possible for this movie to spawn a sequel that can be more like High School Musical and Glee combined. But forget about what's next, we're talking more about "kilig moments" in T.A. Class of 2012. This movie is heartwarming, touching, enjoyable, and yes, there are chances that you want to get "Tween Academy" merchandise at your nearest National Bookstore!

The uniforms wore in the Tween Academy movie look more resemble of the uniforms from Ouran High School Host Club but a little more grayish and I'm sure whoever watched the whole movie, dreaming to cosplay as a Tween Academy student. What can I say? Besides, the casts' performance were truly remarkable. For a GMA Tween girl like Barbie Forteza, she's got potential and we truly like the way she pulls it all in the movie. Because the movie has some charm and wit, some people want to watch this movie again because, the TWEEN-vasion never stops!

It doesn't matter what can you say about T.A. Class of 2012 but what matters is, this is all-out fun for the young generation!

Yes, that's about it. Nothing special about what's inside this maxi single album. Just the theme song, Happy Sunshine, and two instrumental versions of Sakura Kaze ni Yakusoku wo - Tabidachi no Uta - and Happy Sunshine. You don't need to explain what's what about it but enjoy it before this Negima movie starts this Saturday, August 27!

A great way to say thanks for supporting Mahou Sensei Negima all the way to the very end!

Ferrari FF

2012 Ferrari FF

The Ferrari FF sparks the revolution of the Prancing Horse because when you heard the word "FF", this is not a Front-Wheel Drive Ferrari. In Ferrari terminology, FF means "Ferrari Four" and this is the first Ferrari shooting brake and the first with the new All Wheel Drive technology, which is called 4RM.

In the past, Ferrari never created a 4WD car because most 4WD systems are too bulky for their Prancing Horses. To resolve it, Ferrari created a new ALL WHEEL DRIVE technology called 4RM. The new 4RM system provides FR dynamism in normal conditions, sending power to the front when slip is found. A new Power Transfer Unit (PTU) is a necessity to deliver torque straight from the crankshaft to the front. In other words, power is distributed between the left and right sides of the rear and front axle for superior grip unlike other 4WD sports cars. The 4RM system is light, compact, and it has a low center of gravity which makes them its strengths.

The Ferrari FF is powered with the new direct-injected 6.3L V12 engine that produces 660PS/8000rpm of power, 683NM/6000rpm of torque, 335km/h of top speed, and 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds. It is armed with the seven-speed F1 dual-clutch gearbox for a shifting feel like a Formula One car. With the HELE (High Emotions, Low Emissions) System that provides idling stop, it has a CO2 emissions of 360 g/km, which is lower than other Ferraris and the fuel economy of the Ferrari FF is 6.5km/L. This car is all about keeping its eco-car promise because of the eco-friendly HELE System. As of that, the GDI V12 engine is Euro V compliant.

2012 Ferrari FF interior

Inside, the Ferrari FF is all about luxury in a new dimension. This car can seat up to four people and it provides an exceptional luggage compartment if you are taking a break. For an added bonus, there's even a rear-seat infortainment system with a premium audio system packed with Dolby Surround Sound. You wouldn't believe that people at the back will enjoy watching their DVDs while having fun driving the Ferrari FF. This can be the most generous offer for the brand's first AWD hatchback.

My comment:
The first 4WD hatchback from Ferrari, the FF, really throws the curve in the world of Grand Tourers, but for me, I think it needs a little bit of time to master the fundamentals of the new 4RM ALL WHEEL DRIVE system mounted on the Ferrari FF. This is the only Ferrari that can take you anywhere from tarmac, gravel, snow, sand, anywhere that no other supercars can.

Ferrari aims to build 800 FF models...but it sold out fast just like the Lamborghini Aventador. Can the Ferrari FF be worthy enough to take down a 4WD sports car which is the Nissan GT-R?!

Strange encounter...

Hi there! It's me again! Earlier, we went to the Seafood City Westfield Southcenter branch for some groceries...

Whoa, they're selling Monster Energy? Whoa, I'm not into those okay? Why most prefer this? Probably because of the Ken Block thing? Oh well...

Okay, back for some more...

Mmmm... My favorite...Century Tuna!

The Philippines' favorite sardines, Ligo Sardines. Laging Masarap for more than 50 years! Sarap Ligo!

Manny Pacquiao's vinegar of choice! Datu Puti! Ito ang champion! :D

Malaki, marami, masarap! Rebisco Crackers! I can see Michael V on the packaging!

The customer service...

The cashier...

C2 Green Tea! One of my favorites. I often drink these when I'm thirsty...

And this is it. I saw actor Joel Torre hanging out at the Seafood City Westfield Southcenter branch to promote a film titled "Amigo"

Apparently, Joel Torre's very busy on autographs! We got excited to see him in person ever since we saw him on 100 Days To Heaven.

Amigo is a film by Academy Award-nominated director John Sayles. Joel Torre played the role of Rafael, a village mayor caught in the murderous crossfire of the Philippine-American War. This movie also stars Chris Cooper, Garret Dillahunt, Dane DeHann, Rio Locsin, Ronnie Lazaro, Yul Vazquez, Bembol Roco, and DJ Qualis. It's a good movie! Watch it!

And now, we're taking a Jollibee break before we go...

That newly opened Daiso Japan store sells everything for 1.50 Dollars. I checked inside and wow, this thing sells household items and others!

...and we're going home!
