AlDub meets TVJ in latest EB Kalyeserye

On the recent Kalyeserye portion of Eat Bulaga, it's a dream come true for Maine "Yaya Dub" Mendoza to step inside the Broadway Centrum once again along with Lola Nidora, played by Wally Bayola, Lola Tinidora, played by Jose Manalo, and others, just to meet up with the Dabarkads as well as the show's legendary presenter trio; Senator Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey De Leon, among many others. Not only Yaya Dub has the chance to meet up with Alden once again, it's also the perfect time for Lola Nidora to meet up with Jimmy Santos, the presenter who snagged her heart by random occurrences.

Yes, everything's all fun and games for the Dabarkads to meet up with them but for AlDub, this isn't all fun and games even on the table they've provided for them. Just before Alden Richards had the chance to sit, Lola Nidora issued a duel against him in a game of rock, paper, and scissors. Best of three to be precise. If Alden wins, he is allowed to sit, shake hands, and take selfies with Yaya Dub...and he did. Alden and Yaya Dub got what they've truly deserved as they spent most of their time getting together while the two Lolas are very busy doing stuff with the Dabarkads.

Lola Nidora asked the presenter trio if Alden and Yaya Dub could switch places, meaning Yaya Dub will stay at Broadway along with the other Dabarkads and Alden to work for her in exchange. The trio approved the proposal until one phone call changed everything. Lola Nidora called Rihanna and then...she heard that something bad happened at her mansion. With another misfortune heard, she got off with her Rogelio men grabbed Alden Richards just like what she proposed to the TVJ trio.

Be sure to tune in on Eat Bulaga every weekdays to find out what's next for AlDub!

On the outside, you can see some small changes from the front and back and as for the inside, well, little has been changed. Anyway, let's not talk more on the styling updates because let's check out what's new for this minor change.

Exclusive on the Athlete model, there's a new 2.0L turbo variant which is similar to the one used on the Lexus IS200t and the NX200t models. The 8AR-FTS engine has a power output of a class-leading 238PS, 350Nm of torque output, and it's mated with an 8-speed Super ECT automatic gearbox. Fuel economy is estimated at 13.4km/L on the JC08 Mode standards. Of course, with the turbocharged 2.0L petrol engine is available only on the Athlete, you can opt in for one or for another Athlete-exclusive 3.5L V6 petrol engine if you want more power.

On the Royal models, engine choices are either a 2.5L V6 petrol or a 2.5L 4-cylinder hybrid powerplant is which is available in most models, even the Athlete as well.

Also new to the update is the world's first frequency dedicated to driving assist functions. It's called ITS Connect and it uses Japan's ITS frequency to receive and share data between external infrastructure and other cars via vehicle-to-infrastructure communication (Right-turn Collision Caution, Red Light Caution, Signal Change Advisory) and vehicle-to-vehicle communication (Communicating Radar Cruise Control, Emergency Vehicle Notification). This is a new tech so don't dare to ask how these things work because only the blokes from Toyota knows how.

The 2016MY Toyota Crown range starts from 3,730,000 to 5,906,000 yen for the Royal model and 3,880,000 to 5,986,000 yen for the Athlete model.

Shocking news for everyone who's into space (and DW-related malarkey) because there was news regarding what's what with the planet Mars because today, the top officials from NASA confirms signs of water flowing on Mars, showing incredible evidence of life in the red planet.

Yes, there IS such thing as waters of Mars according to NASA but I should warn you that pretty soon, when you go there, you might wind up like these guys as seen from that Doctor Who special titled The Waters of Mars. What? Haven't seen it? But if you did see it years ago or you've binge-watched Doctor Who for this, use extreme caution because even though NASA confirms there is such thing as waters of Mars, you'd better not make close contact with that.

Please...Every Whovian in the world knows how this disaster.

Doctor Who S09E02

Doctor Who S09E02

The second episode of the ninth series of Doctor Who, called The Witch's Familiar, continues where the previous one left off as The Doctor makes a crucial choice while confronting with his ancient enemy, Davros. Seems that the emotional tearjerkers are nothing more of a deception just so Davros tries to fulfill his evil plot but a catastrophic events underground sent those merciless monsters to an unexpected defeat. The moment when Clara Oswald pilots the Dalek, all thanks to Missy, puzzled everyone with suspense rather than dark comic humor that our favorite baddie Time Lady pulled from her sleeves. But in the end, it was mercy that led the Doctor saved the young Davros from a distant past.

Behind the scenes;

Next episode preview:

Is this the most explosive date in the story of AlDub?!

Last Saturday, Dabarkads from all over the world have honored "National Pabebe Wave Day" by posting profile pics of themselves doing the Pabebe Wave on social media but this is more than that because in Eat Bulaga's kalyeserye segment, they're witnessing Alden Richards' arrival to the mansion of Lola Nidora (played by Wally Bayola) just to court everyone's favorite Dubsmash queen Maine "Yaya Dub" Mendoza. This event also featured a new character in the kalyeserie named Rihanna, Lola Nidora's mayor doma, again played by Wally.

Much to the annoyance of Tidora (Paolo Ballesteros) and Tinidora (Jose Manalo), Alden keeps Lola Nidora's promise not to touch Yaya Dub by one foot and brought everything the Lola's promised. As Alden and Yaya Dub are together in the mansion, mayhem ensues till the very end.

By the time Alden left the mansion, the world shocked as the Dabarkads heard Yaya Dub's real voice when she said "THIS MUST BE LOVE!" and then Lola Nidora shouted "ALDEEEEENNNNN!!!!!!".

Of course, Yaya Dub's voice was the big reveal after days of whodunnit but wonder why Lola Nidora shouted? Is it because he left his shoes outside or did she saw a pic of AlDub together that allegedly broke the one foot rule?

Keep watching Eat Bulaga for more kalyeserye antics! Anyway, great job for the record-breaking, Aldub-related tweets.
