Hey readers! You know who this is.

Back in the first week of February, this week was the end of Philippines' favorite TV drama that spreads God's word to us, known as "May Bukas Pa". Who would miss God's precious gift to us, named Santino? I'm sure you missed everyone's favorite lovable "miracle boy".

Then, in February 8, a new fantasy drama takes place, it's titled Agua Bendita.

I know, we have to wait before Andi Eigenmann's appearance to the latest TV show very very soon, but the Agua character I saw in this latest fantasy drama series is much more like Santino because, she cures just like Santino, thanks to her watery appearance and more of some "Holy Water" traits. I mean, I saw the episode when the young Agua, played by Xyriel Anne Manabay, who also played as the young Bendita (I like her spoiled-brat attitude), cured the wounded bird, then the boy from another episode, and then, Bendita... 

Could Agua be Santino's successor?

Honda CR-Z

A hybrid car is a car dedicated for environmentalists. For those who are seeking adrenaline, they are focused on gas-guzzling sports cars rather than fuel-efficient hybrid cars. From Honda, they created a hybrid car dedicated for sports car enthusiasts, combining the fuel efficiency of the hybrid car with the thrill of the sports car at the same pace. The Compact Renaissance Zero from Honda, known as the CR-Z, is finally awakened from concept form to production form.

The Honda CR-Z is the true eco warrior, harmonizing both the purity of the hybrid car and the power of the sports car, combined to unleash the aspects for both people who want a better environment and people who want thrills on the highway.

From its striking design, the CR-Z resembles the hatchback flow from its predecessor, the CR-X, thus making this green samurai a spiritual successor to everyone's favorite Honda sports hatch from the 80's. Aside from the wonderful design, the CR-Z is powered by the 1.5-litre i-VTEC+IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) hybrid engine capable of 113PS of power with the additional 14PS motor power. Aside from having a CVT, the CR-Z is the only hybrid sports car equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission, perfect for real men who want to rid the boredom from hybrid vehicles. It also has the three-mode drive system that allows drivers to choose which mode is suited for their mood. For power, switch to Sport Mode, for balance, try Normal Mode, and for fuel efficiency, start the Econ Mode.

After checking the CR-Z's performance, the interior is their last stop for this eco warrior. Every sports car aficionados are going to be so thoughtful because the seating is perfect for two persons (with the additional 2-seater at the back); meaning only grown men are allowed to take the plunge of this upbeat hatchback, but luggage is not a hindrance for the CR-Z, because the spacing is just identical to the Nissan Fairlady Z.

My thoughts about the CR-Z:
Undeniably this is the world's first hybrid sports car built to ease men out of the hybrid boredom. What I can say about this sports car is definitely the right time for me to describe its true colors for this eco warrior. This sports car is perfect, this car gets ordinary hybrid owners throwing their keys and grabbing the keys to the world's first hybrid sports car made from Honda. Have fun people, the CR-Z is truly the regal shocker of the highway.

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Mercedes-Benz's ultimate successor to the classic 300SL and the striking but now defunct SLR McLaren might not have been as hot as its predecessors, but the performance truly makes it the "new age lightspeed goddess" of this generation. The SLS AMG brings the AMG powerhouse up the antes even further and mostly gained the spirit of the legendary 300SL at the same pace.

To make men drool to the SLS AMG's style, the gullwing doors makes it a perfect combination of yesterday and tomorrow in the eyes of the Mercedes-Benz universe. To top it all, the style that was inspired from the 300SL is the root of hopes and dreams driven by fate and the engineering of Mercedes-Benz's AMG division, the powerhouse behind the ubiquitous "6.3 AMG" line. Not only that, the retractable spoiler that rises on high speeds or braking makes it a lovely feature for this lightning machine.

For the eyes of the owner, the interior gets most of the fun factor, despite the seating capacity is fitted for two adults. With only two seats equipped on this car, the SLS AMG is perfect for men who want to take a long-legged dame on a highway date 24/7.

To top it all off, the SLS AMG is equipped with the M159 V8 natural aspiration engine that has over 500 PS of power, accumulating the top speed of 315km/h and 3.8-second time from the 0-100kmh run. To bring most of the SLS AMG's majestic performance, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed Getrag dual-clutch semi-automatic transmission gives men to shift freely from turn to turn. As for the braking, an optional carbon ceramic disc brakes give this "new age lightspeed goddess" improved stopping power from the regular brakes.

My thoughts about the SLS AMG:
Former Ferrari F1 driver, now Mercedes-Benz F1 driver, Michael Schumacher was really surprised by the raw power of the SLS AMG, even the question "is it still a car?" really confuses Mercedes-Benz fans from across the globe. Now, it needs to be tested by the men from BBC's Top Gear to see how the SLS AMG will achieve from their power lap times. If Pocholo Ramirez were still alive, he would give this German Mauser a true roar on the Subic racetrack. Anyway, the SLS AMG's explosive packaging makes it a grand comeback of the legendary Gullwing machine that makes men drool all the way to the Nurburgring.

Spark!! To Aru Kagaku No Railgun Original Sound Track 1

Based on Kazuma Tamachi's science fiction fantasy light novel, To Aru Kagaku No Railgun, the spin-off from the hit 2008 anime, To Aru Majutsu No Index, revolves from the life and times of Mikoto Misaka, one of the Level 5 ESPers, who is an electromaster that shoots electricity, like a railgun, and her roommate Kuroko Shirai, a Level 4 teleporter who calls Misaka "onee-sama" all the time. Most fans found out that To Aru Kagaku No Railgun is more entertaining than the original because of the female characters, including newer ones like Kazari Uiharu (fans like this character because she is another one of Aki Toyosaki's anime roles) and Ruiko Saten (fans found this character entertaining than Mikoto Misaka) as well. With only a few episodes remaining on this high-voltage anime that packs a sting on the fans, Geneon Universal stings the Railgun fans with the first part of this soundtrack, subnamed as Spark!! Composed by Maiko Iuchi from I've Sound (who also worked from the original Majutsu No Index), twenty-two high voltage tracks (including the TV-sized versions of the songs "only my railgun" by fripside and "Dear My Friend" by Elisa, both full versions of this tracks are sold separately as a single album) stings the ears out of the Railgun fans, relieving every single moment of Mikoto Misaka, one coin toss at the time. Great when you want to recharge the best Railgun moments from the beginning.

1. only my railgun -TVサイズ- (by fripside, full track sold separately as a single)

22. Dear My Friend まだ見ぬ未来へ -TVサイズ- (by Elisa, full track sold separately as a single)

Best Part: Twenty-two fully charged tracks are packed with even more voltage than Mikoto Misaka shooting electricity.

Worst Part: There is even more aside from this! (To Aru Kagaku No Railgun O.S.T. Part 2 coming soon!)
