A wild jejemon is appeared - in Bubble Gang!

The Jejemon madness doesn't stop here! Not even GMA's comedy gag show, Bubble Gang!
j3j3mOn sketch in Bubble Gang

Last night's episode of Bubble Gang (regarding whose luggage belongs to, a cooking show, so-called smuggler in Switzerland, another Sabi-Sabi episode, and some beggar's convention) showed a sketch regarding JEJEMON!

You know how Jejemon means right? When parents afraid that their son is influenced in drugs or possessed by something, their son appears and talks in the Jejemon language. (Jeje subtitles appeared!) The "albularyo" appears and told the parents that their son was a Jejemon! Then, the albularyo is the Jejebuster and he can take care of it by spanking and force the Jejemon son to spell out hello. 

Turns out like this:


In the end, the parents were suffered by speaking in Jeje language!


Seems Bubble Gang is unsafe by the Jejemon craze!

STILL STILL STILL more bad case of Toyota's mass recall

With the Toyota mass recall reaches its boiling point, there is more to this apocalyptic recall:

The LS, Lexus' premiere luxury premium saloon, gets a mass recall from all over the world, from its Phase One (still on sale at the Philippines) to its latest second phase (available worldwide) due to steering defect.

More details:

And now, most owners of the latest generation Passo, normal and +Hana variants, are not going to be happy because Toyota Motor Corporation is going to recall 22,300 Passos, from first to second generation, How? But Daihatsu was behind the manufacturing of the Passo and the Boon.

Riisa Naka-san, or should I call you "Hana Adachi" from the recently aired J-Drama, Yankee-kun To Megane-chan, you better see that thing coming at you!

The Grand Bentley Mulsanne

A few years back, the premier British member of the Volkswagen group, Bentley, has just released a teaser shot photos of what they called it the "Grand Bentley" in the eyes of wealthy Europeans. In August 2009, at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance, the Grand Bentley's identity is revealed and henceforth known as the new Bentley Mulsanne.

Grand Bentley Mulsanne

The Grand Bentley appeared to be using the Mulsanne name for the second time since its ancestral predecessor appeared in the 1980's and it is named after the legendary Mulsanne Straight from the Circuit de la Sarthe in France, famous for its 300kmh straight drive at the Le Mans. It is not a direct replacement of the aging Arnage, which of course, phased out last year, it is the new era of Bentley's historical heritage.

For a premiere premium saloon offered to be the challenging rival against the Aston Martin Rapide, Porsche Panamera, new Audi A8, Rolls-Royce Phantom, and the Toyota Century, you can say that this ride is only offered for the rich and powerful men. Imagine someone who is a member of a royal family, a powerful conglomerate, or the most fearsome leader of the most powerful gang, you are willing to take advantage of the Grand Bentley's lap of luxury. A quick reminder that the Mulsanne's interior can be customized, just like the Lexus LS' L-Select, mixing and match which Mulsanne interior you fit best.

Now it is time to step on the Mulsanne's grand performance. The Grand Bentley is powered with the 6.75L twin turbo V8 engine that produces 512PS of power and 1020 Nm of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is added, giving the Mulsanne the premium saloon with the shifting feel of the premiere sports car. As for me, it is somewhat difficult to turn the Mulsanne when it comes too fast, even it is a FR sedan.

The Mulsanne comes with the multilink rear suspension with toe and brake reaction control, electronically controlled air springs with Continuous Damping Control, and automatic ride height control sensitive, providing the helping hand needed on the Mulsanne's extreme handling and acceleration.

When it comes to safety, nothing is impossible for the Mulsanne's host of active safety tools. The Electronic Stability Control adds stability on the Mulsanne, needed for effective cornering on tight spots. The brakes equipped on the Mulsanne are powerful enough to stop this car on a full brake, thanks to the Twin-boost braking system with ventilated discs and Electronic Brake force Distribution. Features offered much safety on the Mulsanne. Each safety feature is great enough to deliver a peace of mind for the wealthy owner.

Expect infinite royalties because the Mulsanne is armed with the most convenient features only a man with the royal blood take pride for, such as the Multi Media Interface, rear entertainment system, premium sound system, long wheelbase, MP3/USB connectivity, voice control which activates everything with your voice, Bluetooth connectivity, and others. Finding which convenient features are fit enough for your royal taste is surely good enough to feel like a king.

My thoughts about the Mulsanne:
You have to trust me, this Grand Bentley will cost you 29 Million Pesos, and this sedan is only offered for those who are involved in power and fame. From its historic design, spartan performance, royal lounge comfort and everything offered for this Grand Bentley, you are surely welcome to be inside the new Mulsanne. Have it your way because the Mulsanne will surely be the grand saloon developed in Great Britain and believe me, the royal families, conglomerate families, and mafia mobsters are the first-class people welcomed by the majestic beauty of the Grand Bentley.


Gemballa's end...

If you really know what Gemballa means, this was the famous tuner for Porsches (take note for the Boxster-based GTR 500, and the 911 Turbo-based GTR 750, as seen on Tokyo Xtreme Racer 3/Shutokou Battle Zero-One from PS2), Ferraris (the F355 from Midnight Club 3 Remix), and Lamborghinis respectively.

I just found something on the internet earlier, regarding Uwe Gemballa's mysterious disappearance:

If some of you realize that the man behind Gemballa is missing, we don't really know what happened. Some say, he went to South Africa, others said he was kidnapped, and a few said, he was running away from the feds.

Check out another related article:

And if that wasn't enough, here is another related article:
It seems that the founder's mystery disappearance marks the end of the tuning franchise. Guess most Porsche fans would be sad by hearing this. Especially video game makers planning for next racing games would be difficult finding licensing rights to Gemballa. (Thank goodness, the upcoming Gran Turismo 5 still has licensing rights to another Porsche tuner, RuF)

With Gemballa's end, will RuF be next? Hope not!

Lady Gaga's Bad Romance - Bubble Gang gagged!

That Friday's episode of GMA's legendary gag show, Bubble Gang, gagged us more than accidental waiters, legends told by a grandpa, nursery reunion, a demon's son, some show made up to pit rival men against each other, another round of Don't Eching Me, and a Santacruzan Hearing gone wrong. What gags us most than those is none other than the gag show's version of Lady Gaga's hit song, Bad Romance.

It's called "Bathroom Dance" but what the heck? I bet this was way hilarious than Bubble Gang's take on Imago's Taralets a few years back, since my high school days....

Going to get back on the mean... to the bedroom...I mean... agh! These gags me a lot! ROFL!

Opel -Second-Generation- Meriva

This new kind of Opel MPV is shaping things up ever since its world premiere at Geneva, Switzerland, and its availability will happen this year is surely a great act to follow on the European families. The newly evolved Opel Meriva (also known as the Vauxhall Meriva in Great Britain) takes advantage of its new look, new surprises, and new challenges in the ever-changing automobile industry affected by the rough economy.

Capturing the eye of the European family is the Meriva's new exterior. This MPV follows Opel's new design tradition happened in the Insignia and the new Astra, bringing sportiness in this family mover. For a special surprise, the way that the Meriva's doors open is more like the Mazda RX-8. Which means, the suicide doors, which Opel calls it Flex Doors, surprises them to open it. These doors are fun to open, but in reality, the Meriva is not pillar-less like the Mazda RX-8 and the Daihatsu Tanto. For those who want to bring a mountain bike, the new Meriva comes with the FlexFix, found at the rear bumpers, allowing them to bring a bike on long excursions.

The interior looks more similar to the Peugeot 3008 crossover, but in truth, the new Meriva takes enjoyment to its new heights. With the panoramic roof equipped, most people will enjoy the entire view of the top while sitting in the new Meriva's seats, especially when seating is only up to five people. For seating arrangement, the new Meriva converts from a default 5-seater into a 4-seater, 3-seater, and 2-seater, making space for more stuff to carry in various situations, especially summer vacations at Germany. This new kind of spacing is called FlexSpace, refers to its hassle-free seating arrangements. The seats on the new Meriva are perfectly aligned for the best in back support, reducing their chances of acquiring back pains thanks to what they call it "Aktion Gesunder Rücken", the movement for a healthier back body. When you have cold hands, the new Meriva's steering wheel is heated (just like the Kia K7 and the K5), allowing your hands to be warmed down, perfect for chilly nighttime driving.

The new Meriva comes with the available engines offered since launch, such as the entry-level 1.4L engine, 1.4L ecoFlex turbo engine, 1.4L turbo engine for performance, and the flagship 1.7L CDTi Common Rail Diesel engine. Most engines are Euro5 compliant thanks to its low emission standards. All petrol-type engine variants are equipped with a 5-speed and 6-speed manual transmission and most CDTi variants are equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

My thoughts about the Meriva:
Even with the new suicide-type doors, known as FlexDoors, equipped on the new Meriva, it does not excite much more because of the pillar. From the plain previous generation's design to the latest generation's sporty design thanks by the folks at Rüsselsheim, Germany, the new Meriva captures the attention of the European families ready for their long European summer vacation. Can the new Meriva became a true winner in the hearts of European families? Nobody knows but the results will happen if they were inside the new Meriva and judge by themselves.
