Turkish leader announces premature end of military coup


June 15, 2016 - A faction of the Turkish military attempted to over the government after dark, deploying tanks and attack helicopters at both capital city Ankara and the largest city Istanbul. Some soldiers temporarily seized the offices of the state-run media where they forced an announcer to read out a statement declaring they have seized power as well as curfew declaration. Even the Turkish branch of CNN were unsafe from this short-lived uprising as well.

Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on his supporters to take on the streets on Istanbul, where they overpowered the coup soldiers, even they're trying to called on everyone to stay indoors.

As dawn approaches, the coup plotting to overthrow the government came to a premature end and the Turkish leader announced that the coup is over, but fighting in the capital city is still going on.

Based on the reports, over 1,500 were arrested, over 90 were killed, and 1,150 injured in the failed coup attempt.

This isn't the first time Turkey faced serious coup attempts by the opposition. In 1960, military officers rebelled against the autocratic administration by detaining senior officials and assuming control of the government. The following year, they shifted the administration back to civilian rule with a general election. Two decades later, small political parties were engaged in bitter fighting and high inflation was causing economic and social upheaval. Top military officials seized power and detained the whole government. In 1982, they created a new constitution that strengthened the authority of the president and the administration was transferred to civilian rule a year later.

Three endings, two channels, one day

Well, that was an unexpected day for teleserye lovers because three endings have occured on the same day; two by ABS-CBN (My Super D and We Will Survive) and one by GMA (Poor Señorita).

In the My Super D finale, to save Dodong's friends and family from the hands of his rival Tony (known as supervillain Zulu), Dodong, as Super D, is on a race against time to settle things once and for all in a one-sided deathmatch but Zulu's powers were too powerful to be defeated by Super D and took Dodong's divorced wife, Nicole, hostage. Unable to bear this, Super D gave up his blue gem, the source of his powers, to Zulu. With Super D's real identity exposed, Zulu thinks he won the fight and with the people became very angry to Tony, his rage was unleashed. With Dodong resurfaced, he demonstrates that his love for people is his only power that grants him to be Super D and with Tony removed his red gem, the real fight begins. After taking multiple beatings by Tony, Dodong strikes back and defeated Tony once and for all. With the world back to normal, Dodong and Nicole are finally back together and they're now one happy family again. Then, Super D made his final address to the public before Dodong and his son Dennis returned the two gems to the cave where it was founded. That concludes the tale of Super D.

On the We Will Survive finale, with Maricel finally recovered fron her long comatose, everything's finally settling in, even for the love of her life, Pocholo. Later, after the baptism of Wilma's newborn baby, Pocholo wants to have a wedding with Maricel but the friends got other plans; a double wedding that shouldn't fail like last time. Day before the wedding, the two friends are recalling their bitter moments and seems that these two finally settling in. The next day, Maricel and Wilma finally got the double wedding they've deserved. This concludes the story of We Will Survive.

In the Poor Señorita finale, with Deborah got hit by the car, the kids are doing their best to help her, despite being the root cause of Rita's problems. With Rita reconciled with her mother after days of trouble, Rita faces trouble as her office is planted with a bomb and everyone's in trouble, even for Rambo who tries to search for Rita. With Rita escaped, she returns back to the office to save Rambo. The bomb explodes but the two escaped. Rambo survived but Rita's in critical condition. Meeting with her father from heaven, Rita's love with the orphaned kids she treated not just friends but as part of the family is proof that she's a good person, therefore she surrendered her fate with her father. Days passed by, everything's back to the way things were, even for the kids and friends of Rita. However, Rita makes her comeback, delighting everyone. This concludes the story of Poor Señorita.

Three endings, two stations, one day. How's that for timing?

Forza Motorsport 6: Studio Ghibli

No, not what it seems but the Ghibli I'm referring now is Maserati's 4-door saloon, the Ghibli. Italian's take on BMW's 3-Series, Mercedes' C-Class, and Audi's A4.

As you recall, you may have drove this car in Forza Horizon 2 as a special machine that was part from the Fast & Furious car pack as Deckard Shaw's Ghibli from Furious 7. Now, I'm driving a totally normal Ghibli model, in the high-end S model with four-wheel drive and a 3.0L V6 engine that produces 404HP of power, mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Upon driving the Ghibli S Q4, I have doubts that this car is as grippy as any other four-wheel drive cars get because by normal, most of the power goes to the front wheels, but I was wrong because Maserati has been very keen on tackling its four-wheel drive powertrain very seriously since the Quattroporte and as a result, it behaves like a rear-wheel drive car by default but when necessary, it can transfer half of the power to the front. As a result, I have a luxury four-door saloon that has the sophistication of a luxury German saloon but with the feel of an Italian sports car. How fun is that. Sounds like the Italian flair really get the job done for the Ghibli, although I don't find its twin-turbo V6 engine to be more exciting even when it injects a lot of power on it. Sure, the turbocharging's all nice and easy but when it comes to excitement, it never really makes the grade for it.

In general, the Ghibli S maybe born from the company that makes grand tourers like the GranTurismo but for having fun...let's demonstrate it when I drive this car round Monza.

Then, I'm going to look for another Ghibli to make a point and looks like I found one...

What you're looking at is a limited-edition Ghibli Cup, a road-legal version of the car that was once used in Maserati's one-make race series in the mid-90's. With its 2.0L twin turbo engine producing 330PS of power, the Ghibli Cup has the strongest power output per litre compared to the Bugatti EB110 and Jaguar XJ220. Sounds cool but let's find out how does the old Ghibli and the new Ghibli face themselves off...

And now the results...

Ghibli Cup - 2:26.647
Ghibli S - 2:23.443

So, what can I say, for a four-door saloon with a four-wheel drive, the Ghibli S Q4 sure knows how to tackle a track with precision but despite its fast result, it's all serious business for the Ghibli as I'm sure why would anyone didn't mind about the hidden potential beneath Italy's 3-Series fighter. It maybe fast enough to handle a corner but for excitement, you'd better off with the old Ghibli Cup instead because with such reputation, no other motorsport-bred Maserati comes close than the legend.

However, if you wanted a saloon that balances luxury and performance, consider the Ghibli a job well done for you.

Third-generation Mazda Axela/3 (2017 update)

2017 Mazda Axela

Mazda has been given the third-generation Axela (3 in world markets) some major updates for the 2017 model year and while there are few cosmetic treatments offered in its design, apart from its revised front grille, there has been big changes on the inside such as the addition of the 1.5L SKYACTIV-D diesel engine as seen on the Demio and CX-3 and the brand new SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS tech that will change the way how it handles.

How does Mazda's brand new G-Vectoring Control works on the new Mazda Axela? The G-Vectoring Control varies engine torque in response to steering inputs, subtly controlling lateral and longitudinal acceleration forces, which works like a traction control but it modulates the throttle to optimise vertical control on each wheel, making the car's dynamics more refined than the previous model. Pretty soon, this new technology will be applied in any other SKYACTIV Mazdas, even the next-generation CX-5 due very soon. In short, G-Vectoring Control delivers a healthy balance of response and stability depending on the load of the wheels.

Apart from its clever vehicle dynamics, the 2017 Axela features the similar SKYACTIV-D 1.5L diesel engine as seen on the Demio and CX-3. This engine produces 105PS of power and 270Nm of torque and it was mated with a 6-speed SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic gearbox only. Fuel economy is around 21.6km/L based on JC08 Mode standards, .2km/L more efficient than the 2.2L diesel engine mated with a 6-speed manual and let's hope Mazda's honest about these figures.

But if you have fears about unfair diesels, don't worry because the Axela can still offered a SKYACTIV-G 1.5L petrol engine or the sedan-exclusive SKYACTIV-HYBRID variant which comes with a 2.0L petrol engine and a hybrid powertrain sourced from Toyota, delivering a 30.8km/L fuel economy fit enough for your next barkada trip.

Other features in the new Axela include optional i-ACTIV all-wheel drive, e-LOOP, i-Stop, i-DM, i-ACTIVSENSE safety systems, and many more.

Should you buy it? The new 2017 Axela starts from 1,760,400 to 3,310,200 Yen. That's a small price bump compared to the previous one but is it worth buying it? You'll never know until you tried the newly improved model packed with new dynamics that will make driving a little more interesting.

Despite a drizzly rainy weather down at Silverstone, that didn't stop the knife-edge rivalry between the aces of Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, from fighting each other to the finish line, where in the end, Hamilton wins the race. That was a great day for a homegrown hero but another star in the race is Red Bull rookie Max Verstappen, who struggles to keep up against Rosberg even with transmission problems that hindered the German ace but ended on third place due to a ten-second penalty post-race.

Onto the total standings; the gap between Rosberg, who still leads with 168 points, and Hamilton, second place with 167 points, is now decreased to just one point, meaning it's too close to call for these two. Kimi Raikkonen from Ferrari, meanwhile, is now placed 3rd with 106 points.

South Korea and the United States picked the mountainous southern town of Seongju as the site for the THAAD deployment. The Defense Ministry said in a statement Wednesday that "South Korea and the US' joint working group have proposed the Seongju area in Gyeongsangbukdo province and that the countries' defense ministers have approved it." The ministry said the placement of the THAAD system in Seongju would help more firmly secure the safety of South Koreans in one half to two third of the South Korean territory while dramatically increasing the capacity to defend key state facilities as well as the alliance forces. It said in selecting the final location, the joint working group considered military effectiveness and resident safety as top priorities and conducted comparative studies, on-site inspections and simulations. The latest decision came after the allies announced their decision to deploy the THAAD system in South Korea by the end of next year at the latest.

Imagine You & Me

To celebrate the imminent first anniversary of AlDub, the romantic movie that starred the phenomenal TV couple that gave birth to millions of fans from around the globe and record-breaking tweets has arrived and this film is the "ultimate" AlDub experience die-hard fans have waited for.

Imagine You & Me

Imagine You & Me maybe more than just being a long-awaited film that stars Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza as Andrew and Gara but this film is considered to be the perfect present for AlDub's 1st Anniversary. In fact, because this film is so romantic for the AlDub nations too many, this film was shot entirely from Italy.

Why Italy you may ask? Because Italy is home of the many scenic spots in this country such as Venice, Rome, the Vatican City, Tuscani, even the Amalfi. For AlDub, it's a golden opportunity to have this film shot at it and showcase their unique love story while they're at it. The producers we're very pleased by it.

As AlDub aficionados step inside the theater to watch this film, there are three things to expect in this film; laughter, romance, and tears. Those are the three and as a rule, best to watch the whole movie because one single bathroom break will ruin your once-in-a-lifetime experience to watch this movie you've been desperate to watch it and if you did, sorry. If you want to take a bathroom break, wait after the ending and if by ending, fans are starting to guess what kind of ending this movie will be and there is a very high chance that this film has the ending Lola Nidora never wanted to see but a dream come true for fans, I presume. No one knows what but best to watch the whole movie for the big answer on what would AlDub do at the end of the film.

To conclude, this film is a long-awaited present to the AlDub Nations across the Philippines and here's hoping that this film will be distributed worldwide for #TeamAbroad. We now have the movie but the AlDub Week isn't over yet because we still have 52nd weeksary of AlDub tomorrow and by Saturday, time to celebrate AlDub's 1st Anniversary. Are you ready?

My rating: 5 out of 5!

Chairing a monthly meeting of her senior secretaries, President Park underscored that the decision to station a Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system in South Korea is only for the nation's self-defense to deal with growing threats from North Korea. After five months of negotiations, the two countries on Friday have agreed to deployed a THAAD system in South Korea.  Calling on the South Korean people to unite against North Korea's provocations, President Park asked for the nation's support, adding that THAAD's location will be selected with residents' safety and health issues in mind. In the meantime, marking South Korea's 71st independence next month, President Park also announced a special pardon to give hope and another chance to the people.

Meanwhile, North Korea responded to South Korea and US's plan to deploy the THAAD to South Korea, warning that the North will take "physical action" against the two countries. State-run media reports that the North's military is ready to strike Seoul and Washington, threatening it will turn them into a "sea of fire". In response, South Korea's defense ministry countered the North's threat, saying North Korea needs to clearly see who is responsible for putting the Korean Peninsula's peace and security at risk before criticizing the THAAD deployment decision. If North Korea continues its groundless claims and rash actions in defiance of the South's warnings, it will have to face Seoul's military's stringent retaliation.

My favorite Star vs. the Forces of Evil moments

The new season of Disney XD's hit TV show, Star vs. the Forces of Evil kicks off tomorrow morning and it's great to see the universe's ridiculously ugly (but downright funny) magical girl from the Kingdom of Mewni, Star Butterfly, and her best friend from Earth, Marco Diaz, back for more adventures. In honor of the show's new season tomorrow, time to jot down my favorite Star moments; the good, the bad, and the downright ugly (just like Star herself).

1) Star Butterfly is a wayward princess from the Kingdom of Mewni who loves adventures and kicking monsters' butts. On her 14th birthday, her parents, the king and queen of Mewni, gave her the magic wand and promised her to take full responsibility...which she didn't. Because of the fiasco, her parents exiled her to the Earth dimension...which she find this dimension rather amusing. Upon encountering with a high school boy named Marco, things get spiraled out of control until an evil baddie named Ludo and his henchmen plotting to steal Star's magic wand to take control of the universe. Can't say whatever the heck's going on but we had fun watching the first episode where a partnership between a mischief-making princess and a buttkicking Earth boy are forged for many endeavors to come.

2) To compensate from Star's poor grade from the exams, she plays matchmaker to Ms. Skullnick, until she turned her into a monstrous troll, which wowed the crowd. Unknown by them, Ludo and his henchmen take advantage of the situation and attack Star for the wand. While the gang busy buttkicking Ludo's henchmen, one of them fell in love with Ms. Skullnick. Well, you get the idea but it's ridiculously funny to see, especially when we want to "feel the love".

3) Afraid that when Star's magic wand loses all her power, all of the wand's magic will be disappeared forever, she and Marco warped to a dimensional shop called Quest Buy to buy a new charger for her wand. However, they've been tailed by Ludo and the chase is on for the wand's new charger. Wow, for a magical girl like her, she can be very absent-minded when she realized that her wand's charger got sucked by a vacuum cleaner that Marco used at the end of the episode.

4) It's Marco's parents' anniversary and the gang tries to find a perfect present for them. Despite Star's parents warned that she should not leave Earth indefinitely, she took the whole Diaz family to a trip to her home kingdom, Mewni. During their little tour, Star didn't realized that her dad is here and she had to keep themselves down or else her dad catches her red-handed. As the Diaz family vacation's getting more and more risky, it's up to the gang to save the day until she got caught by her dad, who embraces his wild side. What the two didn't realized that they're both have monster butt-kicking genes and decided to keep it a secret between them. Talk about parental bond, if you know what I mean?

5) The Mewberty episode takes the puberty to a whole new meaning as when Star undergoes "Mewberty", she goes boy-crazy, even Marco. Unable to cope up with Star's uncontrollable situation, Marco tries to find her book of spells and negotiates with Glossaryck of Terms on how to deal with Star's uncontrollable situation. Sadly, Glossaryck's not helping and Marco's bracing the aftermath of Star's Mewberty. Looks like the ugly one gets even more uglier for Star.

6) After one interdimensional prank call, Star found out that her magic mirror's out of credits and the only way to reload her mirror is to enter Pixtopia to pay the bill. Unprepared, Star and the gang got caught up on a one-sided battle against pixies until one of them fell in love with...the pixie queen. Pixies...they're so aggressive on humans, especially other-dimensional ones like Star.

7) The Blood Moon Ball episode is the turning point of the show and when Star's demon ex-boyfriend, Tom, invites her to the Blood Moon Ball, Marco's unaware that this once-in-667-years-phenomenon was a moment that was destined for each other. Desperate, Marco rushes to the Underworld in his Dia de los Muertos costume, stealing Star on the floor, and when the blood moon (or total lunar eclipse) shines, the two dance each other until the secret's out for Star. Are Star and Marco destined to be each other? Sounds romantic by best to keep it to the viewers themselves.

8) It's Pony Head's birthday and with Star and Marco heard that Pony Head's life is in danger, the two are entering their biggest fear of their lives, St. Olga's Reform School for Wayward Princesses. As Star disguised as one of the guards and Marco disguised as a wayward princess, the two infiltrated the reform school to save Pony Head...only to realized they were too late. With Pony Head getting all "mannered", the two are trying to bring her waywardness back while still on the run by the reform school guards and the headmistress,

9) When Star heard about a commercial for a "banagic wand", she and Marco set off to "a better store" near them. Sadly, Marco has some karate lessons, meaning Star will have to set off alone to "a better store" while facing disastrous troubles all in the name to get...(whispers) the banagic wand.

10) When Marco got kidnapped by an evildoer named Toffee, Star made an unlikely alliance with her arch nemesis Ludo to "storm the castle". This season finale is definitely the biggest turning point for Star Butterfly as in order to stop Toffee, sacrifices has to be done and when she done that...whispering spell, everything starting to unfold and with Toffee defeated, Star's wand is gone until...her wand found out to be upgraded with a major twist. Half of the wand's crystal is missing and where could that be?

Looks like the race is on as the new season of Star vs. the Forces of Evil kicks off tomorrow, July 11, 2016, at 10:30 AM Pacific Time on Disney XD. Check local listings.

My favorite AlDub moments?

Counting down to the big AlDub anniversary celebration, my little AlDub week in honor of not just the love team's long-awaited film Imagine You & Me but also the 1st anniversary of AlDub this Saturday, July 16, 2016, has started and it's time to jot down my favorite AlDub moments since their first encounter.

Photo: Official Eat Bulaga Facebook

1) Their first encounter between Alden Richards and Yaya Dub occurred in the 16th of July, 2015, and what was her first DubSmash to Alden when they first met? Something Chinese, I presume.

2) The YaKie weddings made a huge impact in the story of AlDub. When Alden's going to rush at the wedding of Yaya Dub and Frankie Arinolli to stop it, Yaya Dub got fainted and when Alden's arrived, it was too late. Onto the second wedding, it was revealed that this wedding between Yaya Dub and Frankie's a fake. Even the doctor and the priest is fake as well!

3) Their Dabarkads Pa More performance, on their first try, is surely one moment they will never forget. After Alden's performance onstage, he gets dragged by Lola Nidora and her Rogelio men backstage while Yaya Dub's next. While Lola Nidora tries to make sure Alden will suffer while Yaya Dub performs, Yaya Dub impresses the crowd with her Cinderella-like performance and when her performance ended, Alden's going to rush through the entire Broadway to chase Yaya Dub until it's too late. Yaya Dub got on the jeepney and her missing slipper ended at Alden's hands.

4) The wildcard performance between Alden and Yaya Dub on Dabarkads Pa More is also one of the best AlDub moments in history because right after their performance, Alden and Yaya Dub made their first encounter. They were going to approach each other until Lola Nidora dropped the plywood between them. After the whole plywood fiasco, some unknown men kidnapped Yaya Dub and this is where the search for Yaya Dub began.

5) Another AlDub moment every AlDub Nation remembered is the kidnappings and it was revealed that Duhrizz is the main culprit behind the AlDub kidnappings, which made everyone shocked in awe.

6) On their first date backstage, Alden and Yaya Dub could have made the best day of their lives but then an alarm clock caused Yaya Dub to rush back to Lola Nidora until a car accident occurred. On their second date, this time at the De Explorer mansion, they had the best date ever even with some interruptions caused by Lola Nidora's sisters, Tidora and Tinidora. This is the first time we hear Yaya Dub talked at the very end.

7) The Bahay Ni Lola Halloween Special of Kalyeserye is also one of the best AlDub moments of 2015. Alden, Yaya Dub, and the Kalye's Angels brace themselves as they enter a haunted house that Lola Nidora's diary of secrets foretold. A house known as..."Bahay Ni Lola"! Having managed to brace themselves in fear and a little bit of AlDub Dubsmash chemistry, they've survived and snagged the jewelry box as foretold by a message. Inside that jewelry box, there was a message saying that a ring is inside...and it was! Alden grabbed hold of the ring and he was going to wear it on Yaya Dub's finger but then...well, you get the idea.

8) Kalyeserye does Gaya-Gaya Pa More! Shortly after the celebrities performing their best impersonations in Bulaga Pa More's Gaya-Gaya Pa More competition, fans have witness what celebrity impersonation will AlDub pull off and it was none other than Guy and Pip, the legendary love team in Philippine showbizness.

9) AlDub goes to Enchanted Kingdom! Before going to Enchanted Kingdom, first they have to attend a Christmas party alongside Lola Nidora, Tidora, and Tinidora as they will give gifts to the little children and have games in a form of a calamansi relay. After a short Christmas party, Alden and Yaya are off to the said location and hoping that they will follow what Lola Nidora promised. Of course, Tidora and Tinidora are tailing them while on Enchanted Kingdom and alongside the sisters is none other than everyone's favorite doctor/explorer, Doktora de Explorer! Muy bien!

10) In the 24th of October, 2015, the world is all one when everyone at the Philippine Arena, at home, at a viewing party, or abroad witnessed the biggest AlDub event of a lifetime when Alden Richards and Maine "Yaya Dub" Mendoza finally made it "Sa Tamang Panahon". It was a star-studded cast with all the Eat Bulaga presenters as well as the Kalyeserye characters present to unleash their own brand of joy to the mass audience and it all builds up to the arrival of AlDub. Too bad no kiss occurred but that's fine by them to see these two finally close to each other having managed to survive through tons of challenges in their never-ending quest for forever. Of course, no event is too colorful without Lola Nidora, Tidora, Tinidora, Duhrizz, Rihanna, Frankie, the Rogelios, the Bernardos, and the Quandos present.

11) We all though all hope is lost when Yaya Dub is heading on another place while Alden Richards is going to marry Cindy Kournikova just for the sake of her family's businesses in Russia but miraculously, AlDub never gave up hope as they finally managed to meet each other once again backstage! What happened to Cindy? Well, while she was going downstairs, getting ready for the wedding, she got tripped and when she regained consciousness, she got amnesia! Wow! While Cindy completely forgot who she is, we were going to see Alden and Yaya kiss each other but eventually, the big hoking horn honks and everyone's on a standstill.

12) The Kalyeserye segment on Eat Bulaga takes AlDub Nations back in time to discover Lola Nidora's bitter heartbreak from the man of her life, Anselmo. Set in 1945, when the Second World War reaching its climax, viewers get the chance to see a much younger Nidora (who looks just like Yaya Dub) while discovering her life event that changed her forever; the story of Anselmo and Nidora. Sure, it's set 70 years ago but the timeframe's all messed up because of the early promotion of a movie that is due on 2015, some modern vehicles, modern infrastructure, and whatever weird stuff going on. Either way, viewers witnessed why she ran away from her Mama Ariana Miley, how she got accompanied by the Beyonce "Yaya Mot" (whose English is hilariously bad), how Anselmo suffered from a tumor in his brain, and how these two lovers cope up together. Believe it or not, the terms dubsmash, hugot lines, and pinky swears were done during the postwar period. It's all come to this; at the moment the two lovers going boojie on their day out while her mom went AWOL, they were unknowingly being hot on Mama Ariana Miley's trails and caught red-handed. Furiously, she ordered her men to separate Nidora and Anselmo once and for all. That was the most bitter postwar heartbreak in Lola Nidora's life. That heartbreak shaped her to become the person we knew today.

13) Alden and Maine showcased their acting skills in the 2016 Eat Bulaga Lenten Specials but the best 2016 Lenten Special was none other than God Gave Me You, which is where Jake Ejercito made his first acting appearance in a special. In God Gave Me You, Maine plays the role of a young woman who tries to cope the loss of her friend, played by Jake, until a reluctant male, played by Alden, steps in to cheer her up and set things right.

14) The 9th monthsary of the Philippines' favorite love team, AlDub, sees them uncovered the big revelation inside the box they got. So, what's in the secret box? Keys to a house and lot? A sketch for a wedding dress? A baby doll? No, no and no. The biggest surprise is none other than...a movie announcement!

15) The Sportsfest kicked off as planned and for our very own Team Work, led by Lola Tinidora with Divina as their Muse, they're facing a neck-to-neck competition against other teams. In the end, the Team Work has won but Lola Nidora's arrival spurs things up for AlDub and what do they get? A final script for the movie they're working on.

16)  To prepare themselves for the movie they'll be soon working on, the latest Kalyeserye segment in Eat Bulaga sees the gang pitched in award-winning movie director Gina Alajar to do a live acting workshop on national television and you know that means, right? LIGHTS! MOTOR! ACTION! Direk Gina gave the gang some acting lessons and giving them situations, which the gang done very well in terms of acting. Yes, this workshop's going very well right up to the moment when things are getting personal and out of hand. About Lola Nidora getting angry at AlDub, is this part of the acting or a personal manner that is about to get real? We may never know...The lolas have thrown in an Italian-themed despedida party for AlDub before heading off to Italy for the shooting of their romantic movie coming soon. After exchanging necessities, the gang headed off to the studio for one last bow for AlDub before setting off.

17) Alden and Yaya Dub travelled to Taal Vista Hotel to spend their Valentines Date between them. This is becoming the perfect date to end all dates that AlDub done before since last year. During the date, Yaya Dub had a surprise just for Alden and that's none other than another love poem that pleased not just Alden but also Lola Nidora as well even though they're miles aways between Broadway and the Taal Vista Hotel.

18) The guys at Eat Bulaga's Kalyeserye are joining the summer fun with their own pool party with a twist. Lola Nidora will allow Alden and Divina to go whatever they want for their summer holiday but first, they will have to take on a poolside challenge to get all five letters in under five minutes. It sure is a wet and wild experience but that doesn't stop Eat Bulaga's favorite duo from completing their poolside challenge and after five minutes, they succeeded their challenge, which means, they can go whatever they want for their summer holiday! Wow! Fantastic Baby!

19) Aldub fans are in a treat because they witnessed the duet version of the theme song of the upcoming AlDub movie, slated to hit theaters this July, titled Imagine You and Me. But first, Divina's dad, Dodong, makes a surprise comeback just to meet up with the presenters as well as Alden's dad. After their duet performance, Dodong gave Divina something right until the sound of police siren alarmed Dodong, prompting him to run away. Could Dodong be...? Well, we never know who Dodong really is, judging how he ran away when he heard police sirens blaring.

20) Hardly a year has passed since rising star Maine "Yaya Dub" Mendoza made her TV debut on Eat Bulaga and during her tenure, no one has gotten more awards, accolades, and endorsements than everyone's favorite Dubsmash queen. When it comes to her on-screen antics with Alden Richards, nobody does it better than AlDub. To honor such an occasion, Maine has thrown her biggest performance yet on the Eat Bulaga stage and with the help of the AlDub Nations, Lola Nidora, Lola Tinidora, Alden Richards, and the EB presenters, it was the best day of Maine Mendoza's career.

The AlDub Week continues and don't miss Imagine You and Me, in theaters July 13, 2016.

20 Years of Pokemon: Fun with Pokemon GO

Since its announcement last year, Pokemon GO is one of the most anticipated smartphone app games the world has ever faced and even though this is one of the many ways to honor Pokemon's 20th anniversary, Pokemon GO gives millions of Pokemon fans from across the globe the chance they've been waiting for; capture Pokemon in the real world just as what they did on video games.

Before talking about my first impressions, what is Pokemon GO, you may ask? And why is this AR app game became one of the most anticipated games the world has ever waited? Developed by Niantic Labs, Pokemon GO takes advantage of the capabilities of smartphone and GPS, creating the world's first "real world gaming" platform fans ever experienced. Niantic Labs first made their "real world game" called Ingress and over a million players from around the world compete, cooperate, and celebrate while travelling through the ends of the earth in the name of world domination as a faction. With Pokemon GO, this is a totally new experience for fans and newcomers of the Pokemon franchise.

As of right now; Australia, New Zealand, and the USA were the first to launch the Pokemon GO app game with more countries will follow within a few days, including Japan. It's available for free at the App Store or Google Play with in-app purchases.

With millions began their journey to live the life of a Pokemon Trainer as seen on the games and TV show alike, Whether if its in your home, your neighbor's house, your favorite park you've visited, or any other points of interests, Pokemon are everywhere and as a trainer, your task is to catch lots of Pokemon using Poke Balls. As you catch a Pokemon, you can level up or evolve using particular items. Stardusts and Pokemon candies to be precise. As you train your Pokemon, you can stand a chance to battle against other trainers in Gyms.

If you are part of a team, you can assign your strongest Pokemon to an open Gym or a Gym where a team member has placed one of their Pokemon. Each player can have one Pokemon at a particular Gym and each Gym has a Prestige. The higher, the tougher your opponents can challenge but once dropped to none, the defending team loses control of the Gym.

As of right now, Pokemon GO offers over a hundred Pokemon as seen on the Red/Green/Blue/Yellow games or as I like to call it, Pokemon that came from the Kanto region. You start off with one of the three starter Pokemons; Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle, and then set off to catch and train Pokemon. As you catch more and more Pokemon, you can level up your trainer and as your trainer level goes high, you can gain access to more powerful items that will be a great use on your journey.

Need to stock up on Poke Balls or supplies? There are PokeStops located at interesting places. PokeStops are in the form of public art installations, historical monuments, or other interesting places you might come across. Get close to it and you can stock up on items.

Anyway, no time to explain more about how Pokemon GO works because it's time for me to explain my first impression and because of massive amounts of users downloaded Pokemon GO, signing in is a total nightmare and it took me lot of hours to get this thing going. When I started it, I don't know what to do with this game until I try taking a stroll outside my home to see how Pokemon GO works but unless my mom's away from work, I couldn't get away trying out with this. When I spotted a wild Pokemon, first thing's to do to myself is I took a picture with a wild Pokemon before capturing it. Sadly, I'm not very accurate in terms of sliding to the target with the Poke Ball but with practice, it won't take a matter of time before I officially caught one. Now that I got the hang of Pokemon GO, I can't hardly wait to see what else I can do when I left the comfort of my own living room and into the outside world to experience what millions of players described as the best experience in Pokemon's 20-year history.

Everyone knows that Pokemon GO is the best real world game they've ever played on their smartphone but due to health and safety, it is advised to watch your surroundings at all times because you may never know what sorts of things may bump you while your eyes are glued into the game. You should never play this game while riding a bike, driving a car, or anything else you should be paying attention. And kids, don't wander off from your mommies and daddies or your pals to catch a Pokemon.

Anyway, that's it for my first bite of Pokemon GO and for an added experience, keep an eye out for the Pokemon Go Plus accessory coming soon in your nearest shops. The Pokemon GO Plus uses Bluetooth technology that lets you know that an incoming Pokemon is nearby and it will notify you via LED and vibration.

So, pack up your stuff and head out because your life of being a Pokemon trainer has just begun.
