The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II

In the first part of the final chapter of The Hunger Games saga, we saw Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) staging a resistance under the guidance of President Coin, played by Julianne Moore. She's risking everything and her people to save Peeta, played by Josh Hutcherson, and the nation of Panem from the Capitol and President Snow's tyrannical rule.

And now, here we are, the epic conclusion of what is known to be one of the most iconic young adult dystopian fiction novels ever written and nothing can prepare you for the end of The Hunger Games saga. In the epic finale of the Mockingjay story, Katniss has been joined by all of District 13 and now, with their strong unities for each other, they are now fully prepare to stage an all-out revolution against the autocratic Capitol. This is where the liberation of Panem has gone full circle but only a few would ever made it to overthrow the Capitol and restore peace to this war-torn world.

Since Mockingjay Part II is the epic conclusion to The Hunger Games saga, there is nothing more I can tell you about how this film performs but rest assured, it's definitely The Hunger Games film that will end all Hunger Games film since the beginning. It was one hell of a ride for the tale of a strong female who once ended up as a tribute in the bloodbath and now ending the game by staging a revolution against the Capitol, in a bid to liberate Panem once and for all. If there's one thing we'll ever learned after watching Mockingjay Part II, it's about freedom that comes with a high price but it's about her eloquence that will stand out from the rest of other strong female characters because this film promises to be a legendary feat that fans will remember it forever.

My rating: 4.7 out of 5.

Kalyeserye's Sumptuous Lunch Is A Trap for AlDub!

Photo: Official Eat Bulaga Facebook page

It's the day when Alden's half-Russian, half-Waray grandmother, Lola Babah invited Yaya Dub, Lola Nidora, and Tidora to her mansion for some sumptuous lunch in the latest episode of Eat Bulaga's kalyeserye segment. Everyone's getting nervous when Lola Nidora thinks that Lola Babah's sumptuous lunch could be a trap, enabling Alden's grandma to take full control of Lola Nidora's mansion once and for all or an invitation to have the Russian model, Cindy Kournikova, marry Alden for the heck of it.

Anyway, while they're here, Lola Babah introduces our characters for some Russian hospitality (sorta), her own Russian take on Filipino foods, and of course, giving them gifts as a token of gratitude. Of course, since it's the yuletide season, Lola Babah gave Lola Nidora some more time to repay her debt for the mansion. It should have been a great sumptuous lunch for the lolas and AlDub but as Cindy Kournikova appeared, this sumptuous lunch is nothing but a trap! A trap that will eventually ruin AlDub once and for all and when Lola Babah announced that Cindy's going to marry Alden, our favorite lovers ran away!

Where are they heading to? Was this sumptuous lunch really is a trap so Lola Babah can get her grips on her grandson to marry the Russian supermodel? Things are taking a desperate turn in the world of AlDub so keep watching Eat Bulaga every weekdays for more Kalyeserye antics.

In the meantime, Хорошо, АлДуб народ! (Harasho, AlDub Nation!) It's Russian, just like Lola Babah and Cindy's.

Sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro

Transformer's Bumblebee gets a brand new makeover as Chevrolet's iconic pony car, the Camaro, has been regenerated for its sixth generation with new look, new choices, and a whole new take on the legendary muscle car that has been the longtime competitor to the Ford Mustang. Question is, is it any good?

2016 Chevrolet Camaro

For the first time in Camaro history, and sounds sacrilege for muscle car fans like us, there is now a 2.0L turbo engine available and this engine produces 275hp of power, about 35hp less than the Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost. Shoddy, why would introduced a turbocharged engine in the Camaro that does less than the Mustang's? Anyway, if you don't prefer the turbocharged route, there's also a 3.6L V6 engine delivering 335HP of power and for the true muscle cars fans, a Corvette-derived 6.2L V8 on the SS version producing 455HP of power and same amount for torques.

Which means at any speed, at any gear change, this V8-powered Camaro does the job very well and spoils the Ford Mustang GT for its sumptuous lunch. Yeah, baby. That's a sumptuous V8 engine only Chevrolet's iconic muscle car can deliver. Seems that this car's taking a lesson from its big brother, the Corvette. Of course, depending on the engine choices, the new Camaro can be mated with either an old-school 6-speed manual gearbox or an 8-speed automatic gearbox. What are the odds? No matter the transmission choices, the new Camaro is all about adaptability fused with anticipation that will leave the opposition shuddered.

2016 Chevrolet Camaro

Thanks to its all-new lightweight platform, the new model is up to 390lbs lighter and 28% stiffer than the previous model and when joined forces with the most sophisticated suspension system and performance technologies, it has transformed into a decent handling car that can smoke out the European sports cars through the corners without all the drama infused. Again, that is one heck of a sumptuous feast General Motors offered for this new model. Of course, because this is a high-tech sports car, the Camaro offers different driving modes such as Sport, Tour, Snow/Ice, and for the SS model, Track, where every bit and bob on the new Camaro starting to unravel and you'll gonna need some skills to push this car to the limit. There's so much to love about how the Camaro performs not just a sportscar but as a grand tourer that you can use it anytime, anywhere, as long as you're not a show-off.

The Camaro is all about being a great car for your next day-off but for day-to-day use, it takes some tough love to getting used to because if you pull out at the set of lights, people will start taking notice of you once you got off. Same thing goes when stuck in traffic because this new look is all about nostalgia rebooted just like what the previous model did.

It sure is a great car, even when it has a introductory price of 25,700 US Dollars, but the new Camaro has some new roles to deal with ever since it got regenerated from being Bumblebee from the Transformers films. It may take time before the producers managed to have this car reprising the iconic role for their fifth Transformers film but in the meantime, it should be a more busy bee for the road and track before it's ready for show time.

Available colors: Silver Ice Metallic, Summit White, Black, Nightfall Gray Metallic, Red Hot, Blue Velvet Metallic, Hyper Bule Metallic, Garnet Red Tintcoat, Bright Yellow, and Mosaic Black Metallic.

At the top of the Columbia Center

A few days ago, me and my sister Bea, alongside a relative of hours, went to the Columbia Center for some sightseeing for a few hours. Yes, I know. It's my first time being in Seattle's tallest buildings which is twice the size of the iconic Space Needle.

The Columbia Center was opened on the 2nd of March, 1985, It is a 76-story building that has a height of 933' or 967' to tip (287.4264m) and it was currently the second tallest structure on the US West Coast.

Like most buildings, the Columbia Center is a business center where top companies from around the globe claim their businesses here and while this building is business-focused, it's still one of the best tourist destinations in the Pacific Northwest because there's a Sky View Observatory located at the 73rd floor. In here, visitors can get a bird's eye view of the entire Seattle. Here are some of the bits and bobs I've captured during my day at the Sky View Observatory.

And now, a wonderful view of Seattle while at the Sky Deck Observatory of the Columbia Center.

Love a good view from the top, don't you agree? Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed the scenic view from the 73rd floor of Seattle's tallest building and if you have the time, why not stop by and enjoy the view? It doesn't sound much but it's the best seat in the house.

Forza Motorsport 6: A real Formula One legend

Now here's the racing machine straight from Forza Motorsport 6's eBay Motors Car Pack everyone will love due to its unprecedented heritage that commands their upmost respect and it's the one every Formula One aficionados in the world are particularly fond of; Ayrton Senna's McLaren-Honda MP4/4.


Arguably one of the most dominant Formula One cars of all time, the McLaren MP4/4 was known for winning 15 out of 16 races in the 1988 season. The #11 was piloted by Alain Prost while the legendary #12 was piloted by the legendary Ayrton Senna. The McLaren Formula One team scored 199 points to garner the constructor's champion title but it was Senna's performance of eight wins garnered him his world champion status for the 1988 season.

The MP4/4's design was penned by Steve Nichols and Gordon Murray. It comes with a carbon fiber honeycomb monocoque for the chassis, double wishbones with pull-rod actuated coil spings and dampers for the suspension, a Weismann-McLaren 6-speed manual gearbox, and a 1.5L Honda RA168-E V6 turbo engine, one of the most powerful Formula One engines of all time.

Neil Trundle, McLaren's Chief Mechanic, says that this Formula One machine features a lightweight body, outstanding downforce, highly efficient brakes, fantastic suspension, and a fabulous V6 Honda engine that made the MP4/4 one of the best racecars McLaren made.

I am very honored to drive one of the most successful Formula One cars of all time because of the heritage set by the legendary Ayrton Senna himself. However, don't get too excited because even though you're inside a legendary machine, you have to be very skillful enough to master its unrivaled potential hidden beneath its carbon fiber monocoque chassis because this is the ultimate F1 legend made for the chosen few.

To find out, I need to drive this F1 legend in one of the tracks the MP4/4 set foot and it's none other than Hockenheimring because the producers sent us on a time attack using the car and this track. Yep, it's a monthly challenge set by the FM producers in honor of every DLC Car Pack release.

Here's a little tidbit; during their qualifying rounds at the Hockenheimring during the 1988 season, this machine set its fastest top speed record of 207mph with both Prost and Senna behind the wheel on the 1.6km long straight.

Anyway, since we're in the modern Hockenheimring, it would be nearly impossible to pull such a thing on this car but I did managed to lap this car round the track in 1:42.124. Not the fastest lap around but doesn't matter because no matter how I did, I am very grateful to drive this legendary machine that was once driven by a Formula One legend.

The episode titled "Sleep No More" is one helluva fear fest for the viewers as The Doctor and Clara emerged on a futuristic space station, trying to avert the monstrosity caused by the machine called the Morpheus. Sadly though, this episode is nothing more of a footage sent by a rogue scientist who, in the end, revealed to be one of the monsters known as the Sandmen. Yep. These monsters are named after the song that goes Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom....well, you get the rest but this episode gave us some sleepless nights reminding about how frightening this latest Doctor Who episode was.
