REMEMBERING 2014 (Part Two)

Welcome back. Let's continue where we left off...

Flight MH370 is missing

Since March of this year, a Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370, once schedule to arrive from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, went missing along with over 239 passengers in it.

The trouble with Ukraine

In February of this year, the nation of Ukraine is starting to face its worst. Viktor Yanukovych, who was once the president of Ukraine, vanished from his presence while many people are searching for his whereabouts. With Yanukovych's disappearance comes another trouble as the Russian government annexed the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea. With the annexation of Crimea comes a conflict between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian rebels. The world leaders accused Russia for supporting the separatists and issuing stringent sanctions against Russia.

Cadet Cudia

Aldrin Jeff Cudia, the Philippine Military Academy cadet who would have been graduated this year, faced the biggest mistake of his life. Reports told that he violated the Honor Code for being 2 minutes late for class and lying, and he's on the risk of being dismissed by the PMA.

Top Gear meets Phineas and Ferb

In honor of Platypus Day, the hosts of Top Gear made a special appearance in a Phineas and Ferb episode called "Live and Let Drive" where Perry, as Agent P, tries to stop Doof from stopping a famed Grand Prix. Just before that, one of the hosts, that is Richard Hammond, got interviewed by Phineas and Ferb on the "Take Two with Phineas and Ferb" short.

2014 Geneva Motor Show

Cars like the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4, the new Audi TT, the new McLaren 650S, the Koenigsegg One:1 (the world's first megacar), and more were debuted at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

Jjak contestant committed suicide

The SBS reality matchmaking show, Jjak, is in deep trouble because one of the contestants, a female one, committed suicide during a week-long production shoot at a guesthouse somewhere in Jeju Island. She found herself hanging with a hair dryer cord and left a suicide note stating she didn't want to live anymore.

Need For Speed Movie

One of the best-selling EA franchises in history, the Need For Speed franchise, has spawned a movie version like any other video game franchises in the world rarely spawn theatrical films for numerous reasons.

Although the film has nothing to do with all the Need For Speed video games from the past to present, it's worth enjoyable to watch because in this movie, Aaron Paul, familiar by many as Jesse Pinkman from the concluded Breaking Bad TV series, is the perfect actor to play the role in the movie. Aaron Paul played the role of Tobey Marshall, a man who runs a family business, an auto shop to be precise, and street races with his pals on his free time until tragedy struck to him. He was framed for the crime who didn't commit and two years later...he was freed from prison and plans revenge against whoever framed him. He takes on the "De Leon" race, similar from The Run from 2011's NFS The Run video game, which is a cross-country high-stakes street race that spans across the United States. Armed with the highly-customized Ford Mustang to the teeth, Toeby will risk everything to take down anyone who stands in his way and win the De Leon race to save his family business.

2014's a (so-called) great year for Pacman

Yes. I know. The year 2014 really is a (so-called) great year for the People's Champ, Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao as he won the rematch against Timothy Bradley since April. Seven months later, he won against Chris Algieri in Macau. Fighting with his last breath, huh? That Pacman won't quit.

WrestleMania XXX

One of the most shocking moments in the history of WWE, the WrestleMania XXX sees an unexpecting appearance of Brock Lesnar as he puts The Undertaker's undefeated record to a devastating end thanks to Brock's signature F5 attack that countered The Undertaker's Tombstone attack. Undertaker's humiliating loss in WrestleMania XXX is probably known as one of the most humiliating moments in WWE history.

Sewol Tragedy

One of the worst maritime disasters in South Korea history, the MV Sewol that carries 476 people - mostly students taking on a field trip - was on its way from Incheon to Jeju Island, had been capsized. According to reports, over 304 people died, almost 250 of it were students. Lee Joon-Seok, the captain of this ship, was sentenced to 36 years in prison.

MH17 down

Moments after the Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 disappeared and never to be seen again, another Malaysian Airlines flight banished from radar and this time it's the Flight MH17. A SAM from the alleged Pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine shot down that mentioned flight since July 17, 2014, killing all 298 passengers including two infants, on board.

Anyway, that's enough for now. See you in Part Three.
