Showdown at the Minsan Lang Kitang Iibigin Finale

On the finale of Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin, Alondra (Lorna Tolentino) was held captive by Diego (Ronnie Lazaro) and his men. What Diego wants is just Javier (Coco Martin) and Rosa, who was unknowingly Lora (Amy Austria-Ventura), because they're traitors. The real truth that Rosa, whose real first name is Lora, was the real mother of both Alexander (Coco Martin) and Javier, as told from previous episodes. Alondra would never mind about Diego's attempt but this is insane. It's up to the twins to put an end of this carnage.

Alondra was rigged with some kind of bomb set up by Diego and it will only explode if Diego pushes the detonator. With time running out, the Del Tierro twins along with Lora approached to Diego for the final showdown. Diego knows what just happened and the whole government troops rushed to Diego's hideout. Just before Diego tries to kill them, Javier appears and he said that the one Diego's about to kill aside from Lora was Alexander. The crossfire beyond good and evil begins. As the crossfire continues, Lora rescues Alondra and while Lora resuces Alondra, Diego pushed the detonator and the clock is ticking on the bomb! With time running out, Alondra apologized to Lora, her father Sebastiano Del Tierro (Ronaldo Valdez), and Joaquin (John Estrada) and she wants them to evacuate before the bomb explodes.

However, with not much time left, the Del Tierro twins tried to dismantle the bomb but Diego appears and he shot Javier but Alexander managed to kill Diego. Instead of rescuing Alondra, Alondra wants the Del Tierro twins to escape. Just before the bomb explodes, Alondra saw a young boy in her past, and after that, the bomb exploded while the Del Tierro twins managed to escape the building.

With the fight is over, the wedding begins, with Gary Valenciano guests to sing the theme song. The ending made Alexander and Krista (Maja Salvador) married along with Joaquin and Lora. Javier appears too and he's happy to see his twin moved on to his bigger things. It's true that Alexander finally reunited with his real twin and his real mother. Whoever separated them by fate must be the one who reunited them to the very end.

Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin finale

That concludes the Minsan Lang Kitang Iibigin story...

Audi Japan to provide 22 units of Audi A1 for the winning Nadeshiko Japan

Nadeshiko Japan at the Audi Forum Tokyo!

You guys remember Nadeshiko Japan right? They're the team who gloriously won the Fifa 2011 Women's World Cup. By honorable mentions, Audi will be the supporting company for the Japan Football Association. The winning team had received 22 units of the Audi A1 compact car. The Nadeshiko Japan members, even team captain Homare Sawa, even get to put their own signatures on the bonnet of the Audi A1 as well.

A luxury German car maker collaborated with the winning team is just one of the many reasons why a wonderful partnership is involved.

Asian Invasion! 4G GS and JX

2013 Lexus GS350

2011 Infiniti JX Concept

This year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance at Monterey became more exciting because Toyota's Lexus showcases the upcoming, 4th-generation, Lexus GS while Nissan's Infiniti showcases the JX Concept, which previews the next seven-seater crossover from Infiniti. Both of these will come out at the first quarter of next year!

Talk about killing two birds in one stone!

2013 Lexus GS Press Release:
Lexus Reveals All-New 2013 GS 350 at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

• A Sport Sedan with World-Class Luxury and Evocative Design Shows New Identity of Lexus
• Outstanding Driving Dynamics and Innovative Technology Combined
• Spacious Interior With Open, Modern Architecture

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif., August 18, 2011 – Lexus today unveiled the all-new GS 350 at a press conference in conjunction with the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The new 2013 GS combines bold, dynamic styling, precise handling, innovative technology, and a spacious interior. In addition to the GS 350, other 2013 GS models that will be launched in early 2012 include hybrid and F Sport versions, with further details to be announced later this year.

"Today, buyers in the mid-size luxury segment want a more engaging driving experience, styling that makes a statement, and a roomier interior package," said Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager. "With the all-new GS, we're giving them what they asked for, and more."

Along with a new Lexus signature spindle grille, the GS is a car that conveys a tangible sense of driver confidence, with a redesigned chassis and a wide, strong stance that inspires and rewards driver participation with crisp and precise handling.

GS engineers challenged themselves to develop a more spacious interior environment. While leaving exterior dimensions virtually unchanged, they dramatically increased cabin and trunk space to create an interior that can easily transport passengers and their luggage in luxury and style regardless of distance.

Richly endowed with world-class features and premium details, the new GS is supported by advanced, performance-enhancing technology that makes it more than just a luxury car. The driver and front passenger will enjoy the clean appearance of the new high-resolution central control display.

A New Personality and An Invitation To Drive
Designing the new GS 350 to be both strong and agile was a key focus of the engineering team. They looked to the Lexus LFA supercar for inspiration and carried over some key elements to provide a more engaging driving experience, including a new aerodynamic body; a completely new platform with a wider stance and stiffer structure; a transmission with quicker shifts; distinctive engine sound and exhaust notes; and better seat support.

The new platform is more rigid compared to the current model. Engineers conducted extensive platform testing, ultimately increasing the number of spot welds and adding laser welds in very specific locations. The track, wider by almost two inches, works in combination with a revised suspension design to assure a more solid stance and superior cornering performance.

The new suspension system is designed to help guide the 2013 GS through corners with precision. In the front, upper and lower control arms are made from aluminum and employ larger bushings. The rear subframe has been completely redesigned to accommodate an all-new multi-link rear suspension, using improved suspension geometry that retains tire cornering force and enhances rear control. With the stiffer platform and lighter components, the shocks can use lighter-viscosity oil, so they move easily and respond to small inputs more quickly.

The use of front and rear aluminum control arms helps reduce unsprung weight and results in significant improvements in agility, roll damping, ride comfort, body control and steering precision. Overall, the suspension is lighter and stronger, allowing it to react to driver input readily, and ride quietly without harshness. Ventilated disc brakes featuring four-piston aluminum front calipers are endowed with the latest electronic enhancements to help provide braking balance and control.

Customized Driving Experience
The new GS is powered by an advanced 3.5-liter V6, four cams, and four valves per cylinder with dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). At 306 horsepower, it is one of the most powerful base engines in the segment, as well as the only one with both port and direct injection. It propels the GS from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds and at the same time, fuel economy has been improved.

Acceleration from 30 to 50 mph can take just 3.0 seconds, and improved engine sound characteristics complement the bolder, more energetic personality of the new GS. The six-speed sequential shift automatic transmission has paddle shifters and sport driving functions as standard equipment.

The transmission incorporates many features adopted from the Lexus IS F high-performance sedan - including faster shifts, earlier torque converter lockup and downshift throttle blips - to support four driving modes that can be operated by toggling the new Lexus Drive Mode selector. In addition to the Normal mode, the following settings let the driver customize the driving experience:

• ECO mode revises throttle mapping, seat heating, and climate control systems for better fuel economy. In ECO mode, meter lighting changes to blue.
• SPORT S mode revises throttle mapping and transmission shifting priorities to fully exploit the capabilities of the powertrain. In SPORT S mode, meter lighting changes to red.
• SPORT S+ mode (available on some models) engages handling enhancements via a sport setting of the adaptive variable suspension, steering system, and vehicle stability control (VSC) together with the powertrain enhancements of SPORT S mode.

An optional electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system is designed to enhance traction in a variety of driving conditions. The system can vary front-to-rear torque balance from 50/50 to as much as 30/70, depending on driving conditions, for exceptional control.

Innovative Lexus Design
The 2013 GS expresses a new generation of Lexus' design philosophy with its precisely
sculpted exterior and will lead the rest of the lineup in an entirely new direction. When designers shaped the GS they visualized the flow of air around it and, like the LFA supercar, maximized aerodynamic efficiency for class-leading coefficient of drag.

The GS fuses distinctive style with engineering functionality. Fins incorporated into the side of the tail lamps and the design of the trunk area all help direct air over and past the car. The rear bumper underbody area was designed for reduced wind resistance to help keep the car firmly planted on the ground. Finally, air inlets located on the outer edges of the lower grille serve as cooling ducts.

The signature spindle grille with its trapezoidal contours evolved from current Lexus styling and fully integrates into the aggressive front bumper allowing for efficient airflow. This distinctive Lexus design feature combined with the deep-set, high-tech headlamps and L-shaped LED daytime running lamps further express the vehicle's confident and dynamic character. The headlamps use a projector beam design, adding a strong, chiseled appearance and excellent illumination.

From the side, the GS projects the image of a spacious sport sedan with a road-hugging wider stance. The tapered lower rocker panel and the short front overhang give the vehicle a sense of motion. Width-enhancing front and rear wheel arches adds an athletic stance enhancing the vehicle's dynamic presence.

The rear bumper features a distinctive exhaust diffuser and centered aero fins to help control underbody airflow. Combined with the L-shaped LED tail lamps, a Lexus design cue, these rear bumper features lend a high-performance appearance. Overall, the new GS sheet metal represents a significant extension of the Lexus L-finesse philosophy that is the core of all Lexus product design.

The GS 350 will feature three colors that are new to the Lexus color palette: Riviera Red, Meteor Blue Metallic and Liquid Platinum. Vehicles in Riviera Red will benefit from glass flakes incorporated into the coating that adds a high level of brilliance to the paint. Lexus engineers developed a new advanced coating process for Liquid Platinum exteriors. The GS 350 will be the first Lexus to adopt this new coating technology. Vehicles with the Liquid Platinum exterior will appear more radiant as an additional metallic texture gives both strong shading and defined, sharp highlights. This metallic effect makes subtle and defined bodylines more noticeable and the surface appear finely polished.

Spacious Interior with Premium Upgrades
The GS provides more overall space for all occupants. With these changes, the new GS
offers comfortable space for front and rear passengers.

Upgraded accommodations start with the driver. The entire cabin was created around the driver and the driving experience. A horizontal-themed instrument panel emphasizes the spaciousness through its wide layout. A redesigned seat frame and changes to steering column architecture enable an improved driver seating position for increased comfort, better forward visibility and overall command of the road. Equal attention has been paid to maximizing space for rear passengers, adding headroom, legroom, knee room and improved foot space compared to the current generation GS.

Door openings have also been revised for easier ingress and egress. Trunk space has been increased by almost 25 percent, and trunk access is improved with a wider, deeper opening.

Painstaking attention to detail was applied to the GS cabin as well to create a balance of luxurious and technological amenities and emotional design. The new layout of the long, sculpted dash gives the driver and front passenger a sense of roominess through its clean center stack and new, large high-resolution center control display placed deep near the front windshield. Most of the comfort and convenience controls such as audio and climate were relocated to provide a cleaner and more sophisticated dash layout.

The interior includes a number of embedded premium upgrades as standard equipment. A new energy-saving auto climate control system called S-Flow uses the occupant-detection system to focus airflow only to the front area where passengers are actually seated, a first-in-class technology. A next-generation Remote Touch with one-push confirmation is standard on all models and enables smooth, intuitive operations control.

The Remote Touch allows the user to operate the climate, audio, phone controls, optional navigation system and more. The screen menus are selected with the controller, eliminating the need to reach out. Remote touch also reduces eye movement and helps users operate functions with reduced effort and distraction. A standard rear back-up camera helps add security and convenience.

The finely crafted cabin detail is complemented further by ambient lighting that unobtrusively welcomes and guides the user into the vehicle, providing a carefully designed experience. New white LED lights are sequentially lit to illuminate the areas around the doors, center console and footwells. A new analog clock with LED indicators, carved from an ingot, adds a unique touch, at once both modern and traditional.

Cabin materials include three types of wood specially chosen to highlight the unique flavors of the model variations. Meticulously detailed contrast stitching is used as a visual accent on the instrument panel, door trim, center console, shift knob and steering wheel to create a rich, tailored interior space.

Seamless Connectivity
Next-generation Lexus multimedia brings a host of standard entertainment and connectivity enhancements, including enhanced Bluetooth® capability with automatic phonebook download and streaming audio.

GS buyers will get DVD audio and video compatibility, MP3 sound enhancement, 5.1 Surround Sound, and a high-resolution eight-inch central control display centrally located high up in the instrument panel. An SMS text-to-speech feature allows the driver to be read text messages and send preset responses with a compatible smart phone. HD RadioTM with iTunes tagging and a three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM Satellite Radio are standard. The Gracenote Media management system creates dynamic music playlists and a voice recognition solution recognizes nicknames for music artists and even some mispronunciations.

By adding the optional navigation system, GS owners can get an industry-first 12.3-inch, split-screen, high-resolution multi-media display. The split-screen ultra-large display enhances visibility through the use of advanced, high-definition graphics that are easy to read and easy to use. The 12.3-inch screen is large enough to support simultaneous, split-screen viewing of a large map display, plus audio, climate or other vehicle information.

GS buyers will also have access to next-generation Lexus Enform®, the system that leverages mobile phone technology to provide a new level of connectivity and information management. Local searches can be conducted through Bing, or use voice-enabled apps to make restaurant reservations through OpenTable, get movie tickets via or tap into internet radio, including Pandora® or iHeartRadio.

They will also appreciate the ability to check-in on Facebook, and search for restaurant reviews on Yelp. SiriusXM data services offer information on stocks, traffic, weather, sports and fuel prices. The system is updatable and upgradeable through over-the-air downloads, so new apps and content can be readily added.

For audiophiles who insist on the ultimate in audio performance, an 835-watt, 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio system is available. The system provides 7.1 Surround Sound through 10 channels using a new class D Digital amplifier and luxury-first Green EdgeTM speakers that are lighter, more energy-efficient and have less distortion. The new system produces almost three times as many watts per channel over the previous generation.

Integrated Safety Systems
In addition to enhanced braking systems and an impact-absorbing body structure, the new GS offers significant advances in both passive and active safety systems as standard equipment.

There are a class-leading 10 airbags in the new GS, including a knee airbag for both front driver and passenger. Rear seat occupants have seat-mounted side airbags, and all four outboard occupants are equipped with side curtain airbags.

New Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL) front seats increases the likelihood that occupants will be in optimum position at the moment of impact, enhancing the protective effect of the seatbelt system. Standard seatbelts with pretensioners with force limiters used for front and outboard rear seats further assist occupant protection.

Available options to help further enhance occupant safety include a pre-collision system, which uses the dynamic radar cruise control system to provide early warning of upcoming objects that might result in a collision. The system also uses a first-in-class infrared camera to monitor the driver's eyes to check on driver status. In the event that the driver does not appear to be looking forward when a collision appears imminent, the system will initiate the warning at an earlier threshold. If the driver still does not respond and make the appropriate maneuver, the system will initiate braking intervention up to two seconds prior to impact, helping to lessen the severity of the collision.

Other available safety systems include a Night Vision System that enhances driver visibility at night; Heads Up Display (HUD); a Blind Spot Monitor that helps detect vehicles in rear/side blind spots; and Lane Keep Assist (LKA) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW). GS is the first in its segment to offer LKA with active steering torque to provide a small amount to assist in maintaining course, while the LDW feature alerts the driver if the system detects that the vehicle is beginning to drift out of the lane.

"The new GS 350 combines luxury, outstanding driving dynamics and world-class technology features in a new and bold design," said Templin. "We expect this car to occupy a key position both at the core of the Lexus brand and at the heart of the mid-luxury sedan segment."

Infiniti JX Press Release:
Infiniti JX Concept Makes World Debut at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

Innovative 7-Passenger, 3-Row Luxury Crossover Concept Previews Latest Addition to Infiniti "Inspired Performance" Lineup, Set for Spring 2012 On Sale

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (Aug. 18, 2011) – The Infiniti JX Concept, a preview of an innovative new 7-passenger/3-row luxury crossover that joins the Infiniti lineup in spring 2012, made its world debut today at the Pebble Beach Concurs d'Elegance. The JX Concept was unveiled by Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Shiro Nakamura prior to its display throughout the weekend's activities at the famed Lodge at Pebble Beach.

"The JX Concept advances the Infiniti design language, sharing design cues of the Infiniti Essence concept, yet interprets those elements in ways suitable to the needs of a family luxury crossover," said Nakamura. "From the dramatic front grille and headlight design to the crescent-cut D-pillar and greenhouse shape, the JX Concept shines as a fresh, bold alternative to the many flavors of vanilla currently dominating the three-row luxury crossover segment."

Beyond its stunning exterior, the new Infiniti JX Concept is designed to excel in three areas where luxury crossover buyers put an emphasis – interior flexibility and roominess, safety, and innovative hospitality features.

"The three-row luxury crossover segment is one of the fastest growing among all luxury vehicle segments, providing a huge opportunity for Infiniti," explained Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore. "And like every segment Infiniti enters, we plan to shake up the status quo – with a vehicle that is guaranteed to instantly become the new benchmark for style, hospitality, roominess, advanced telematics and safety technologies."
In the interior, for example, the production Infiniti JX will offer what is expected to be class-leading roominess, along with a 2nd row seat design that tilts and slides forward providing exceptionally easy 3rd row access.

"With the JX, you will even be able to leave a child seat latched to the 2nd row while getting in or out of the 3rd row – just one example of the vehicle's inspired flexibility and versatility," added Poore. "The 3rd row isn't the typical penalty box either, with adult-sized room for all occupants and five-and-a-half inches of 2nd row forward-back adjustability."

The Infiniti JX continues Infiniti's tradition of developing world's first technologies, offering the currently available Blind Spot Intervention and adding a new feature, Backup Collision Intervention. With this technology, when the transmission is in reverse, the JX will help the driver detect crossing objects behind the vehicle and, if necessary, the system will automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision.

The Infiniti JX will also offer technologies designed to make owners lives a bit easier and more efficient, such as a 14-speaker Bose® Studio Surround® sound system with Waveguide bass technology and an advanced Infiniti Connection Telematics system that can automatically synch the owner's calendar and provide navigation guidance to appointments. It will also feature the Infiniti Personal Assistant, Infiniti's new personal concierge service with 24-hour access to a live team of professional assistants. The Infiniti Personal Assistant benefit is now offered free-of-charge with every 2012 Infiniti vehicle purchase.

And, in keeping with Infiniti's "Inspired Performance," the Infiniti JX will offer a balance of driving exhilaration and fuel efficiency through a combination of a powerful V6 engine and all-wheel or front-wheel drive. The Infiniti JX will also be the first Infiniti to utilize a sport-tuned, but fuel-efficient continuously variable transmission. The CVT will mimic a step transmission when the Sport mode of the Infiniti drive selector is engaged. Additional information regarding the drivetrain and other systems will be provided at the debut of the production version of the all-new Infiniti JX at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2011.

"As a premium crossover with a real 3rd row – along with Infiniti levels of hospitality and driving pleasure, the new JX is another breakthrough design from the brand that has been breaking new ground for more than 20 years," Nakamura added. "We will continue to challenge conventional thinking."

In addition, in conjunction with the global reveal of the Infiniti JX, Infiniti is launching the JX Concept "Power of 7" Challenge on Facebook. The challenge invites fans to submit inspiring creations relating to seven Infiniti JX categories: Epicurean, Art & Fashion, Film, Interior Design, Music, Athletics and Technology & Science. The community will vote on the submissions, and winners in each category will receive a cash prize and compete to win trip to 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. More information, including official rules, is available at HYPERLINK ""

Verdict: If arrived next year, do you think we can see those two coming in the Philippines?

Nissan LEAF TV commercials from Japan

Heh, I didn't realize that there was TV commercials for the Nissan LEAF, the electric car, from Japan. I checked on the official Japanese Nissan site, but I can't find these official Nissan Leaf commercials from there.

I really don't get it how these ads appeared but it sure is nice to have the Nissan LEAF gets its own TV commercials from Japan. Way to go, NISSAN!

Latest RSM All New SM7 TV commercial took the idea from the Infiniti M Hybrid TV commercial

Seen here is the latest Korean TV advertisement for the all new Renault Samsung SM7. The latest full model change that is the extended version of the SM5/Renault Latitude and no longer based on the Nissan Teana but packs technology sourced from the Renault Nissan Alliance. 

Huh, looks like this whole Renault Nissan Alliance has paid off for this ad because this latest commercial took the idea from the Infiniti M Hybrid (Nissan Fuga Hybrid) TV commercial from the United States, using the motif of rewriting the history books.

See what I mean? Both the RSM All New SM7 and the Infiniti M Hybrid rewrites the history books. The Infiniti M Hybrid rewrites the history of hybrid technology while the RSM All New SM7 rewrites the premium sedan history. Well, Renault Nissan Alliance did it again!

Due to numerous queries, American Honda Motor Co., Ltd, has decided to pull the wraps of the 2012MY US-Spec Honda Fit and it's not what you think!

Press Release:
2012 Honda Fit Receives Updates and More Features

Versatile, fuel-efficient and fun five-door now features a quieter interior and available Bluetooth HandsFreeLink

The Honda Fit builds on its proven strengths for 2012 with updated styling on Fit Sport, interior upgrades on all models, and the addition of new standard and available features.

The Fit's compact size and tight turning diameter (34.4 feet, curb-to-curb) can conveniently navigate space-confined urban areas and fit in small parking spaces. Yet a roomy and versatile interior offers the convenience and cargo volume of a relatively larger vehicle. Compared to any other vehicle in the subcompact class, the five-passenger Fit provides the lowest, flattest cargo floor and the most cargo volume of 57.3 cu-ft. when the rear seats are down. Its four distinct seat configurations are designed to accommodate large objects ranging from mountain bikes to surfboards to tall houseplants.

Fit Sport exterior updates for 2012 include new designs for the front grille and bumper, black headlight bezels and a dark "machined surface" finish for the alloy wheels (replaces a painted finish appearance). The entry-model Fit retains its exclusive front fascia design and for 2012 receives body-color exterior mirrors (previously black) and updated wheel covers.

Inside, the Fit Sport interior is enhanced with dark metallic dashboard components for a unified color theme (replacing the previous gray and black theme). Fit Sport receives additional chrome accents around instrument displays. All models receive newly designed console-mounted center beverage holders along with console ambient lighting, which provide easier access and greater stability. All models also receive added sound insulation measures in the floor, front fenders and A-pillars, plus thicker front corner-window glass, to help create a quieter, more-refined cabin environment. Two new colors are available: Blue Raspberry Metallic and Orangeburst Metallic, which replace similar colors from the prior model year.

The top-of-the-line Fit Sport includes a long list of exclusive, standard features compared to the entry-model Fit. For 2012, it gains standard steering wheel-mounted audio controls for fingertip operation (previously exclusive to navigation-equipped models) and upgraded seat fabric. When equipped with the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition5, the Fit Sport now includes Bluetooth®1 HandsFreeLink® to help make hands-free telephone calls more convenient. The enhanced system also includes a Bluetooth Audio capability with compatible phones and devices.

Though the Fit has an overall exterior length of just 161.6 inches, the interior provides an impressive 90.8 cubic feet of passenger volume. There's comfortable seating for up to five passengers, and behind the rear seats, there's 20.6 cubic feet of storage space – much more than you'd find in a typical sedan. For enhanced versatility, the exclusive 60/40 split rear Magic Seat® offers multiple seating and cargo-carrying configurations. With its one-motion dive-down functionality, it can fold flat into the floor to maximize rear cargo volume. The Fit's interior can also be easily converted to tall object mode or long object mode based on the shape of the cargo.

The 1.5-liter, i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine is tuned to deliver an engaging combination of power and fuel economy. A five-speed manual transmission is standard and a five-speed automatic transmission is available. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters on Fit Sport models equipped with the available automatic transmission allow for manual gear selection.

All models are powered by a four-cylinder engine that produces 117 horsepower at 6,600 rpm and 106 lb-ft. of torque at 4,800 rpm. When equipped with the available automatic transmission, the Fit has an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) city/highway/combined fuel economy rating of 28/35/31 miles per gallon3. The Fit Sport with the available automatic transmission has an EPA city/highway/combined fuel economy rating3 of 27/33/30 miles per gallon. All manual transmission-equipped models have an EPA city/highway/combined fuel economy rating of 27/33/29 miles per gallon3.

A sporty, refined and dynamic driving experience is provided by the front MacPherson strut suspension and torsion beam rear suspension. Fifteen- and 16-inch wheels (Fit and Fit Sport, respectively) feature 175/65 R15 84S (Fit) and 185/55 R16 83H (Fit Sport) tires. The standard anti-lock braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) uses 10.3-inch ventilated discs in the front and 7.9-inch drums in the rear.

All Fit models are equipped with a wide range of standard safety equipment including Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, anti-lock brakes and more. Dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, front-side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) and side-curtain airbags are also standard equipment for 2012.

Standard comfort and convenience features include air conditioning, cruise control, remote entry, a 160-watt AM/FM/CD audio system with four speakers, a USB audio interface4, an auxiliary audio input jack, MP3/WMA playback capability, Radio Data System (RDS), power windows, power mirrors, power door locks and a security system.

The Fit Sport adds or replaces: alloy wheels, an underbody aero kit, rear roofline spoiler, fog lights, illuminated steering wheel mounted audio controls and upgraded seat fabric. For improved audio performance, the Fit Sport audio system has a total of six speakers. The Fit Sport is available with the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition, which features a 6.5-inch screen and more than seven million points of interest. The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System debuting on the 2012 Fit Sport features 16 GB of flash memory in place of the DVD-based system used previously. Like other Honda navigation systems, this new system allows simple, intuitive operation and has an extensive on-board database.

Awards and accolades include being named to Car and Driver Magazine's "10Best Cars" list ( continuously from 2007 through 20112. In the 2011 J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study, the Fit earned the highest initial quality score in its segment. The Fit has also been named a 2011 Top RecommendedSM vehicle by in its 2011 New Car Sedan Buying Guide. In addition, the Fit captured the 2011 Residual Value Award for "Best Sub Compact Car" from ALG.

Verdict: Well, I'm sure most North American Fit fans finally get what you deserved. Want one?

Way Back Home (2011 Philippine Film)

Way Back Home

Year: 2011

Filmmaker: Star Cinema

Cast: Kathryn Bernardo
Julia Montes
Agot Isidro
Tonton Gutierrez
Lotlot De Leon
Sam Concepcion
Enrique Gil

Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes are back. When we last saw them on the 2010 remake of Mara Clara, former Goin Bulilit stars Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes really showed their full potential on their dramatic roles all the way to the very end. Before getting ready for the upcoming Growing Up, Kathryn and Julia are now facing their biggest challenge yet, as movie stars on this new movie titled "Way Back Home".

Also starring in this movie are Agot Isidro, Bella Flores, Enrique Gil (Good Vibes, Mula Sa Puso), Lotlot De Leon, Sam Concepcion (Good Vibes), and Tonton Gutierrez. This movie is directed by Jerry Lopez Sineneng.

Kathryn Bernardo plays the role of Ana and Julia Montes plays the role of Jessica, two sisters separated by fate for 12 years. As time goes by, the two trying to cope themselves in their daily lives or against themselves. They are highly similar in a Mara Clara kind of way but this is a different perspective because this is a different kind of Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes we're seeing now. They are all Growing Up to push their acting potential to its true route.

What makes it so special is the storyline that keeps them hanging on 'till the very end of the movie as the two searching for their "true route". What will their "true route" be for Kathryn and Julia? If you watched this movie, we'll know what's what for them.

Renault Samsung ALL NEW SM7

European Elegance - these two little words best describe a luxury Asian sedan that has a strikingly impressive European design and keeps it on par with its European competitors. For the Korean subsidiary of the Renault Nissan Alliance, Renault Samsung Motors has just unleashed the full model change of its flagship premium sedan, the SM7.

2012 Renault Samsung SM7

Back in the end of 2004, the Renault Samsung SM7 is released and this flagship sedan is highly based on the first-generation Nissan Teana. It was later gained a minor change in January 2008 under the new name, SM7 NEW ART. The SM7 competes against the likelihood of the Hyundai Genesis and the Ssangyong Chairman W. In the 2011 Seoul Motor Show, RSM previews the SM7's full model change via the SM7 CONCEPT and now, in August 2011, the arrival of the ALL NEW SM7 is here and the "EUROPEAN PRESTIGE" concept makes it more reasonable to fall in love with RSM's flagship sedan that is a part of the Renault Nissan Alliance. Is that count as the model from the planned Nissan Power 88?

For its full model change, the ALL NEW SM7 is no longer based on the Nissan Teana. It uses the extended version of the platform used from the RSM SM5/Renault Latitude executive sedan. The 4-door coupe styling is one of the key points why the concept term "European Prestige" is applied on the all new SM7. The whole details really stayed true to its SM7 Concept counterpart except for the rear view. On the SM7 Concept Car, the rear lamps were shaped like the Aston Martin One-77 but on the production version, it made it more like a Nissan Teana J32. I know that they should have retain the One-77 style rear lamps from the concept version but still it was worth it.

2012 Renault Samsung SM7 interior

At first glance, you might think that the all new interior looks similar to the SM5/Renault Latitude but this is all original. One thing I am particularly aware of is the headrests on the driver and the passenger seats because they look hideous and it looks like a Haven Troopers' helmet. Imagine what would go wrong if we seat on these? There are tons of premium goodies hidden inside the ALL NEW SM7 such as the massager for the driver's seat, heated seats, premium NAPPA leather, adjustable rear seats, Super Vision Cluster, and ambient lighting. Other conveniences include an available DMB navigation system, Climate Control, Soft Diffusion, Perfume Diffuser, Plasma Ionizer, USB connectivity, BOSE Surround Sound System, and loads of extras that will surely come in handy for this European Prestige.

2012 Renault Samsung SM7

The ALL NEW SM7 offers world-class performance needed for the sophisticated driver. It offers in two engine types such as the VQ25 and the VQ35 engine. The VQ25 engine offers 190ps/6,600rpm of power output, 24.8kg*m/4,400rpm, and 11km/L of fuel economy. The VQ35, on the other hand, gets 258ps/6,000rpm of power, 33.7kg*m/4,400rpm of torque, and 9.6km/L of fuel economy. They are both equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission with Manual Mode plus Paddle Shifters offered for the first time. To add more European Elegance in performance, a Sport Mode is offered for the first time, taking full advantage of the sport-tuned suspension for sports car-like agility.

For the world-class safety, the ALL NEW SM7 is offered with front and side airbags, Bi-Xenon adaptive headlamps, an enhanced bodyframe, Hill Start Assist, disc brakes, and a special system that detects incoming vehicles 50km behind. Cruise Control and Speed Limiter is also included as well.

The wide selection offers the following variants such as the SE (Sensitive Edition), LE (Luxury Edition), RE (Royal Edition), LE35 (Luxury Edition 3.5L) and RE35 (Royal Edition 3.5L). The RE35 is the flagship of its lineup. Available color variations include Glacier White, Ultra Silver, Midnight Blue, Mars Gray, and Pearl Black.


The ALL NEW SM7 rewrites the history of luxury premium sedans forever and now, the ALL NEW SM7 targets the likelihood of the Kia K7, Hyundai 5G Grandeur, and Alpheon. Despite no longer based on the Nissan Teana, the ALL NEW SM7 is loaded of features offered from the Renault Nissan Alliance. For the first time in RSM history, Paddle Shifters are added to provide the exceptional feel of the sports car and with the Sport Mode, the advantages of the sport-tuned suspension will change the way you drive the ALL NEW SM7 forever. It takes a driver with a Noble Heart to master the essentials of the ALL NEW SM7.

Lucky and Wacky at the tattoo parlor

Wacky and Lucky at the tattoo parlor!

The rivalry between Lucky (Jobert Austria) and Wacky (Jayson Gainza) is heating up and this time, they went to the tattoo parlor to put a picture of Wendy on their bodies! For Wacky, the tattoo is on his back but for Lucky, the tattoo is on his chest. When Wendy (Sunshine Garcia) comes, time for the verdict. The winner is Lucky!

Okay, enough tattoo for a day because Ryan Bang's here for another set of Korepino words we are surely interested with. A-re-ro is the Korean word for "down" or "baba" but A-re-ro rhymes with ARARO, which is a farmer's term. The Korean word of GREEN is Cho-Rok but it sounds like injection to Filipinos like us! Almost because Ryan Bang's afraid of the very big injection...

Employer: Iho, ikaw ang nag-aaply bilang account executive. Ano ba ang alam mo?
Lalake: Alam ko po kung saan kayo nakatira at tsaka kung saan nakatira ang kabit niyo.
Employer: Tanggap ka na!

Virgo - Makikilala mo ang iyong "Man of your Dreams"....pero sa panaginip mo lang. Good luck!

Malalaman mo na kalokohan lahat ang sinasabi ko pero makakalimutan mo rin ito at manonood ka muli sa susunod! 

Chevrolet Spark presents Sparkada Trip


The all new Chevrolet Spark is a good compact car, highly competitive against the likes of the Suzuki Celerio, Hyundai i10, or even the all new Kia Morning (Picanto). What makes it so special for the Chevrolet Spark is that it made appearances on Transformers Revenge of the Fallen and Transformers Dark of the Moon as Autobots Skids and Mudflap.

Now, Chevrolet (Philippine distributor: The Covenant Car Company Inc) collaborates with ABS-CBN (via their UHF channel, Studio 23) for a special two-part TV drama called "Sparkada Trip". First aired in August 14 (Sunday) after the UAAP basketball games on Studio 23, the special Sparkada Trip TV drama stars Xian Lim, Helga Krapf, Ketchup Eusebio, Charee Pineda, and Gee Canlas.


Xian Lim as Alex, the school jock

Helga Krapf as Nora, Alex's Filipino-American love interest

Ketchup Eusebio as George, a cheerful kind of person

Charee Pineda as Ynah, a role model

Gee Canlas as Joy, a talkative call-center agent

It begins that it was Alex's birthday and he wants this day to be fun-filled with his barkadas except the fact that Nora is missing. To find Nora, Alex calls in his "Sparkada" pals to find Nora in a cross country trip. We all know there are five characters but we decided that there are six characters because the sixth character will be the main character car, the Chevrolet Spark, armed with Havana Green paint and loads of extras.

How far will the world-proven Chevrolet Spark and the "Sparkada" friends go to find Nora? Tune in to this special TV drama on Sunday after UAAP on Studio 23!

Alpha-Bert and Letterman turned BUKO
into TUKO!

Greetings from the superheroes Alpha Bert (Jobert Austria) and Letterman (Jason Francisco), guess what they did today: A man tries to search for TUKO and then the two appeared to look it for him. First off, Letterman throws something and the BUKO fell on the man's head. The word BUKO can turn into TUKO. There is a TUKO for the man when suddenly a cop appeared....

Greetings from Kore-Pino Ryan Bang, guess what Korean words we learned today; Sae-Ro-Un is the Korean word for "new" or "bago" but this was an answer when someone asked where did you buy this thing. Bora is the Korean word of Purple but Bora is short for...BORACAY! Come on, let's go to BORA!

Lalaki A: Pare, yung tito ko talaga, mukhang unggoy.
Lalaki B: Ano nga pare? Bakit mo naman nasabi yun?
Lalaki A: Eh kasi nga, dalawang beses nakawala yung unggoy sa Manila Zoo. Dalawang beses din pinagkamalan ang tito ko!

Gemini - Sa wakas, magkakatrabaho ka na! Pero kailangan mo muna ng college degree sa reputable school at connections!

Makakatanggap ka ng load bukas pero galing din yan sa'yo.

Bulilits sinks...

Okay, let's see what happened on the August 14, 2011 episode of Goin Bulilit:

There you go! Hope you'll don't bother my blog again with such blasphemous acts!

Misaki Ito's Demio Days

Song played on my Personal BGM: Hello by Naoto Intiraymi
From the album: Hello

Back when the second-generation Mazda Demio was released in August 2002 and exported worldwide for the first time as the Mazda 2, this compact car was a game-changing compact car designed for young customers worldwide that depends on their tastes for design, quality, and performance. For those who recognize the second-generation Demio, what is the only memory you know about the second-generation Mazda Demio? Oh yes, Japanese actress Misaki Ito. Some people prefer the second-generation Demio because of Misaki Ito, you know what I'm saying?


If a Japanese actress like Misaki Ito is playing Gran Turismo 5 on her Playstation 3, this is what her car she's driving but the car Misaki Ito's driving on Gran Turismo 5 is the Mazda Demio Sport '03.

Suppose that Misaki Ito's playing GT5 and when she gets all Bronze trophies at the [National B License] at [License Tests], she'll get her Demio as seen on Japanese TV when she was an endorser from years 2003 to 2006. Most GT5 players feel like Misaki Ito when they get inside the second-generation Demio.

Misaki Ito is Top Gear's Star In A Reasonably
Priced Car!?

Having Misaki Ito's Demio returned on GT5, this was listed as a Standard Tier car, not to mention Scott Pippen's Demio (Mazda Demio GL-X '99) also returned as a Standard Tier car too. As told, Scott Pippen's Demio is the first-generation Demio while Misaki Ito's Demio is the second-generation Demio, as shown from those Japanese TV commercials. However, what we're talking about here is Misaki Ito's Demio (Mazda Demio Sport '03), we'll just leave Scott Pippen's Demio (Mazda Demio GL-X '99) to later posts.

Misaki Ito takes on Indy 500!

Misaki Ito takes on Daytona 500!

Misaki Ito drives through Monza on a rainy afternoon

at Circuit de la Sarthe's Mulsanne straight

The Mazda Demio Sport is powered with the ZY-VE (1498cc 4-cylinder DOHC) engine that produces a power output of 112HP/6000RPM, torque output of 103ft-lb/4000rpm, 1080kg in weight, and the fuel economy of 17km/L (about 40MPG). It is mated with a 5-speed manual transmission. When Misaki Ito got her hands on the Mazda Demio Sport, she'll max it out to the highest power output of 271HP/6900rpm, 206ft-lb/6900rpm of torque output, and 918kg of weight. (Results may vary depending on the owner)

Because it is a Standard Tier car, only rear wings are allowed to personalize Misaki Ito's Demio but when it comes to exterior color, she can choose whatever she wants (as long as the paint matches the ones from the Japanese TV commercials). If Misaki Ito participates at the [World Compact Car Race] via [Seasonal Events], she needs to tone her Demio down for 450PP eligibility but when it comes to tire selection, she can choose whatever she wants but she can be interested in Sports Tires and Racing Tires.

Misaki Ito's homecoming

Gran Turismo 5 players who are driving the Mazda Demio Sport may react that they feel like Misaki Ito because this Japanese actress was in the commercials for the second-generation Mazda Demio. Like Misaki Ito, she can find the Mazda Demio Sport more enjoyable at all circumstances. If she adds a [Fully Customizable Transmission], [Adjustable LSD], and a [Fully Customizable Suspension] on her shopping list for her Demio Sport, she can experiment with various settings to find out which setting fits her Demio when it comes to high speed corners, technical courses, countering under-steering, gravel, and snow. I find it very enjoyable to drive Misaki Ito's Demio on GT5. The pictures I took is like Misaki Ito travelling around the world with her Demio.
