Happy Birthday Maine!

The folks at GMA's Eat Bulaga have celebrated the 21st birthday of everyone's favorite Dabarkad, Maine Mendoza, better known as Yaya Dub.

It was the biggest birthday bash ever thrown in honor of the Dabarkad that became a phenom in the show's Kalyeserye segment. The presenters, the lolas of Kalyeserye, even Alden Richards are present in the party as well as everyone around her.

In the middle of the party, Alden gave Yaya Dub some presents; a pendant, some pet birds, a drawing, a notebook, and a present so secret, we really don't know what that is.

What's even more surprising is a split second kiss for AlDub that is too fast for our eyes to see but it was worth it.

Happy Birthday Maine!

London Has Fallen

London Has Fallen

In the hit 2013 action flick Olympus Has Fallen, Gerard Butler played the role of a disgraced Secret Service Agent Mike Banning who is on a mission to save the White House from North Korean terrorists and prevent world chaos. It's been three years passed since Olympus Has Fallen but now, Agent Banning is back and this time, he's on a mission to take London back against an armed terrorist group plotting to assassinate the world leaders.

London Has Fallen is the sequel to the hit 2013 action flick and in that film; following the attack on the White House three years ago, the British prime minister unknowingly died and the world's top leaders will attend his funeral, unknowingly that the prime minister's funeral is nothing more than a trap set up by the armed terrorist group, bent on hunting down the world's top leaders, including the US President (played by Aaron Eckhart), and cause world chaos. It's up to Agent Banning to put a stop to this latest insurrection and take London back before it's too late.

You can really feel just how bewitching and traumatizing the first part of the film is, witnessing how terrorists blown up the rest of London in one fell swoop and watching is like you're in a disaster flick, but seeing Agent Banning on a mission to take London back, his daring moments will really take you back to the moment he stopped North Koreans in the first flick three years ago. Sadly, he's not facing against North Koreans but rather a terrorist group similar to the real world's Islamic State, so you may actually wondering if the enemies he'll face in this new film looks broadly similar to the terrorist group we are facing in the real world.

While this latest assignment is all "God Save The Queen", the fight scenes are all "Rule Britannia" and you can really feel the tension, the suspense, and the thrills this movie delivers and this film bites more than Olympus. Anyway, no time for Brit pop culture references but if you are looking for some real thrills in your next Spring movie watchlist, consider this. No, actually, you'd better be brave enough to sustain the latest (fictional) impact within city limits and survive your way to the end of the flick.

My rating: 3.4 out of 5.

Disney's Zootopia

Disney's Zootopia

This is the latest animated film ever to be brought up by the creative minds from the wonderful world of Disney. It's called Zootopia and in the world of Zootopia, animals are behaving just like us, doing their hectic lifestyles, and enjoy whatever on their hearts' content. In this mammal metropolis, everything is possible.

So, how did the innovative people behind hit animated Disney films such as Frozen and Big Hero 6 came up with this unique environment where animals of all kinds get together in the big city? Well, for starters, the people behind the film imagine what would it be like if animals play the part and do all sorts of stuff normal people would do such as shopping, going to work, exercise, politics, crimes, whatever all sort of stuff. That's where the idea of Zootopia was born.

The film centers on two protagonists; Nick Wilde, your basic city fox (who turns out to be a scam artist, by the way), and Officer Judy Hoops, a female cadet police officer who strives to fit in with her larger colleagues, and together, they can get through all sorts of Zootopia, knowing what is like to be wild in the urban jungle they're stepping on.

From the Sahara Square, Tundratown, Rainforest, Savanna Central, Little Rodentia, even straight to Mayor Lionheart's office, the world of Zootopia really is every animal lovers' fantasy come true as the movie tries to impress younger viewers the wonders of this mammal metropolis while dealing with a rather good storyline that doesn't feel much as exciting as the other Disney films. Think about it, coming up with the world where animals living like us, it's definitely possible in the world of cartoons but in terms of fandom, they should probably do better than that because getting to portray as their favorite Zootopia characters seems difficult than they ever imagine so please don't. Let the little kids dress up as their favorite Zootopia characters because little kids are better than grownups when it comes to dress as animals.

Either way, Zootopia may not be one of the best films to show this Spring season but this is the ideal family movie to watch especially those who want to get their wild side on even in this modern landscape you and I are stepping on.

My rating: 3.5 out of 5.

THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: NoKor condemns human rights bill

Earlier, North Korea warned the world that they will be readying their nuclear weapons and use it by any means necessary, and they also warned that they will take stern actions to protest the recently adopted UN sanctions resolution against the Korean Peninsula.

Now, the Korean Peninsula warned that the passage of the bill on human rights in its country and anti-terrorism bill by the South Korean parliament is a "grave provocation" and constitutes a huge crime against it. According to the spokesperson for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea, the North already warned that the bills counted as a declaration of war against Pyongyang and they will use any means necessary to deal with the recent move.

THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: NoKor leader urges to ready nukes

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un says his country's nuclear weapons need to be ready at any time.

According to the report from the newspaper of the ruling Workers' Party, the North Korean leader made the remark while ordering the exercise involving the testing of their newly-developed rocket launchers. Kim reportedly discussed the latest UNSC sanctions resolution and next week's US-South Korean joint military drill, calling the situation extremely critical as he ordered the nation's military to turn to pre-emptive attack mode in the face of growing threats from enemies. The North Korean leader warned the US and South Korea to strengthen his nation's nuclear forces further and have them strike anytime.

The US Defense Department official insisted there is no evidence that Pyongyang has made its nuclear warheads small enough to fit on a ballistic missile.

Forza Motorsport 6: The 991 911 Turbo got you noticed

Oh, Porsche, it's good to be back in the world for Forza thanks to the recently launched Porsche Expansion pack available on Forza Motorsport 6 XBOX One game for only $19.99 and one of the Porsches I am recalling now since last year's FH2 is the 991-spec Porsche 911 Turbo S, noteworthy of being the most powerful version of the 911.


For a quick review, the 911 Turbo S's 3.8L flat-6 engine, which is mounted at the back of the car, produces 552bhp of power and 516lb-ft of torque. Because of is low center of gravity, 4WD powertrain, and its 7-speed PDK, this car does 0-100kph in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 318kph.

I once said that even the 911 Turbo S is all about straight-line speed, the handling feels very mild to get through the corners, probably because of its electric power steering and 4WD, resulted to its grippy character. I also once said that you  can't compare this to the GT3 because while the GT3 is focused more on handling terms, the Turbo feels as sensitive as a big breasted 20-year-old woman trying to do things at her own pace but despite that, the 911 Turbo S has some quality you can trust.

991 (2)

Speaking of which, because I'm playing Forza Motorsport 6 and now I'm driving a Porsche in the brand-new Virginia International Raceway, I think I had the perfect idea to show how good the 911 Turbo S and for the ideal experiment, I'm going to compare this against the most high-browed Japanese car of all time, the Nissan GT-R.

But first...

991 (3) gtr

Don't blame me, blame the cars' personalities that made me worked on those IDOLM@STER-themed designs for these cars. From here, you can see my 991 911 Turbo outfitted in an Azusa Miura manner while the R35 GT-R is peppered with its Ritsuko-ness. Anyway, with the design set, I am settling this experiment on VIR at around...9:02am.

Normally, I would have done this a 9:02pm, because of the song, but because it's so dark, trying to get through the first corner is a nightmare due to poor visibility at nighttime, so that's why I'm settling this experiment in the morning. Well, with morning set at VIR, let the comparison begin.

Both of these cars managed to launch perfectly at the start but when they meet the corners, their four-wheel drive systems are starting to do their worst as their grippiness will determine the fate of these cars. In the 911 though, its mild driving feel makes it more accessible to get across the corners. The GT-R is facing a stiffer competition against German's mightiest even though its handling can adapt through various scenarios with precise movements.

At the end of the lap, the results are in. The GT-R did it in 2:14.849 while the 911 Turbo did it in 2:13.002, meaning the 991-spec Porsche 911 Turbo S is the clear winner of this comparo. So, even though the 911 Turbo is all about power that goes in the wrong side of the car, its low center of gravity and a mild driving feel makes it more accessible at almost any racetrack it see fit, as long as you take things slowly and keeping it together.

Drive the 911 Turbo S at Forza Motorsport 6's Porsche Expansion pack, available now.


For batch 9 of THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER range, inspired from THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER sub-brand, idols straight from the 346 Productions such as Yui Ohtsuki, Yuka Nakano, Asuka Ninomiya, Yumi Aiba, and Kyoko Igarashi are making their full-voiced album debut just like the rest of the idols from the previous batch.

Yui Ohtsuki
Yuka Nakano
Asuka Ninomiya
Yumi Aiba
Kyoko Igarashi

Like most of the previous CINDERELLA MASTER batches, each CD comes with a character song, a drama part to get to know about each idol, and a bonus track that is surprising to the listeners. 

One more thing about this latest batch because while you will spend most of the time getting to know more about these latest additions, there is a chance that one of these songs heard in one of these newest additions might make it in a future update in THE IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage app game so watch out for these, until then feel free to getting to know the ninth batch of THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA MASTER range!

THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: NoKor fires projectiles into Sea of Japan

According to the South Korean Defense Ministry, North Korea has fired six short-range projectiles into the Sea of Japan.

The projectiles reported to be either rockets or missiles and they flew about 100 to 150km before falling into the sea. They were fired at around 1000 hours local time from Wonsan on the east coast.

The ministry says the launch was possibly an act of defiance against the toughest-ever UNSC sanctions against North Korea imposed hours earlier.  

South Korea is on alert over the possibility of another provocation by the NoKor in the near future and the annual joint military exercise with the United States is set on Monday,
