AlDub's wedding anniversary, sorta

Photo: Official Eat Bulaga Facebook

We know that they've been married by a month but by Kalyeserye standards, it's AlDub's wedding anniversary!

But first, the lolas invited beauty queen Ruffa Gutierrez as their honorary Inday Henyo and showcased their Inday Henyo recipe called "Gotcha...Healthy Veggie Frittata!"

So, how do you cook this meal? All you need is a tablespoon of butter or margarine, a cup of sliced mushrooms, 1/2 cup green and/or chopped red peppers, 1/3 cup chopped onion, 12 eggs, 1/4 cup water. Procedures?
  1. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add mushrooms, peppers, and onion, then saute until tender.
  2. Pour egg mixture over vegetables in the frying pan cover and cook over medium heat.
  3. When bottom is cooked and top is almost set, finish cooking the frittata on the stove top by covering it with a lid for a few minutes, or flip it over in the pan to cook the top part. Cook for a few minutes until it is cooked.
  4. Cut into wedges and serve.

With the "Gotcha...Healthy Veggie Frittata", made by our honorary Inday Henyo served, it's time for Alden and Maine to do their thing in honor of their wedding "anniversary."


One question Maine positive?! Keep watching Eat Bulaga for more Kalyeserye antics!

Mazda Roadster (ND) RF

Last year, Mazda introduced us the fourth-generation Roadster/MX-5 and this new model implements Mazda's revolutionary SKYACTIV Technology which balances fuel efficiency and performance at a same pace. Even though it's all-new, the Roadster formula still remains; light body, small engine, rear-wheel drive, and its fun-to-drive character. Following the success of the latest Roadster, Mazda introduced us a brand new variant that is a fitting present for the speedo boys for the holiday season.

2017 Mazda Roadster RF

At first glance, it looks vaguely similar to the current-generation Roadster, except for one major difference; a retractable hardtop targa roof to resemble a coupe-like silhouette. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the first-ever Mazda Roadster RF. RF means Retractable Fastback and true to its name, the new retractable hardtop delivers a coupe-like silhouette from every angle while delivering the classic Roadster feeling speedo boys enjoyed.

2017 Mazda Roadster RF interior
2017 Mazda Roadster RF

Apparently, because of the roof, the RF weighs a hundred more than the softop equivalent but despite its added weight from the hardtop roof, it's still a light car that values aerodynamics over performance. Classic Roadster mandarin. The lighter bodywork, smaller engine, and rear-wheel drive is what makes the Roadster great and for the new RF model, it's still a great performer that really gets you in the groove.

Exclusive to the RF and for the first time in the ND Roadster, since the rest of the world got one in their softtops, is a SKYACTIV-G 2.0L petrol engine. This engine, made specifically for this variant, produces 158PS of power and 200Nm of torque. It can be mated to either a 6-speed automatic or manual gearbox, which is great by us but we can rest our case in having a open-top car with a two-litre petrol engine for keeps. Because the Roadster RF, like its softtop equivalent, comes with SKYACTIV-CHASSIS and SKYACTIV-BODY, it feels as accessible as the softtop equivalent, making it an easy car to drive on the road and on the track, despite the added weight from the roof that questioned yourself in the process. Spend a lot of time and energy with this machine and you'll starting to fall in love with it all the time.

2017 Mazda Roadster RF

The new Mazda Roadster RF starts at 3,240,000 Japanese Yen, which is almost 800,000 Yen more than the soft-top Roadster, but despite its expensive pricing, it's still a fun sportscar if you can't afford the luxury open-top cars and it doesn't matter if you're not concentrating. Because this is the only Roadster in the stable to have a 2.0L engine in it, those looking for some grunt had no choice but to be indulged by the retractable fastback Roadster. You have a choice now, speedo boys.

Available colors: Soul Red Premium Metallic, Ceramic Metallic, Jet Black Mica, Machine Grey Premium Metallic, Blue Reflex Mica, and Crystal White Pearl Mica.

Toyota Roomy and Tank, Daihatsu Thor, and Subaru Justy

For the first time, Subaru, Toyota, and Daihatsu launched their 1LD-CAR compact minivans, serving as a replacement to the aging Toyota bB-Daihatsu Coo-Subaru Dex trio of compacts. With "living" and "driving" comes to their minds, these new compact minivans, sold exclusively to the Japanese market, fit not just for city gimmicks but for making the most of its recreational purposes.

2017 Toyota Tank
2017 Daihatsu Thor
2017 Subaru Justy
These 1LD-CARs had names. From Toyota, there's the Tank and the Roomy. From Daihatsu, there's the Thor (ahem, not what it seems). And from Subaru, there's the Justy. They recycled that model name from an old hatchback of the 80's. Although the badging is different on these models, these minivans features different kinds of styles suited for their tastes. While their styles look different, their sizing are in Suzuki Solio territory, making them well-fit for city driving and leisure trips.

Inside, the Toyo-Baru-Hatsu compact minivans are just your basic five-seaters but despite its compact sizing, its tall height reminiscent of Daihatsu's Wake means even people in their Abraham Lincoln costume can fit themselves inside. The dashboard is like a reminiscent of the previous-generation Subaru Impreza, meaning there's that top screen to display the time and what's going right now and the middle is where the sat-nav rests before the driver fiddles with it. At the back, the 1LD-CARs are spacious for some grocery shopping and thrift shop stuff despite its sizing. Okay, it maybe good enough for your daily stuff but with the rear seats down, there's enough room for some recreational stuff. There are many ways to do with their seating arrangement and how you do it is up to you.

These compact minivans are powered with a 1.0L petrol engine, in naturally aspirated and turbo variants. The NA variant of the engine promises 24.6kmpl of fuel consumption based on JC08 Mode standards while the turbocharged variant produces a nippy 98PS of power and 140Nm of torque. It even comes with a Sport Mode switch for reasons we really don't understand how it works, even for a fact that they're mated with a CVT. Performance aside, the compact sizing allows these minivans to have a turning radius of 4.6m, which sounds slippy but nice to squeeze the tight stuff.

Emergency Stop Signal system, Lane Departure Warning, Pedestrian Detection, and many other safety tech are offered via the Smart Assist II on these minivans and they're optional extra.

If you can count the pricing and make the pricing count; Toyota's Tank and Roomy will set you around 1,463,400 Yen while the Daihatsu Thor starts at 1,463,400 Yen and the Subaru Justy starts at 1,528,200 Yen.

Omoi yo Hitotsu ni Nare/MIRAI TICKET

The last maxi single inspired from the Lovelive! Sunshine!! TV series has arrived and the last two songs as heard from the TV series is as fresh as they've served these new songs the best for last after fans being part of the 13-episode experience, about how Aqours was born, since last summer.

Omoi yo Hitotsu ni Nare/MIRAI TICKET

In episode 11 of the series, with the absence of Riko Sakurauchi, who's in Tokyo for a piano recital, Chika and the gang took centerstage and perform the song "Omoi yo Hitotsu ni Nare". In the final episode, as all of the Aqours gang gathered everyone onstage to tell a story about how they formed as a school idol unit, they've finished their keynote with their final song of the TV series, MIRAI TICKET.

About the 2016 elections in America...

November 8th, 2016. It became one of the roughest elections in the history of the United States of America as the battle between Secretary Hillary Clinton and business tycoon Donald J. Trump decides the fate of the world superpower. 

It became an all out war full of conspiracies, trash talk, controversies, nightmares, everything that puts these two in focus in the global media, even the Russians who are accused behind the hacking on the Democrats.

Its all come to this, after that long struggle between the two, it seems that the unavoidable nightmare has been witnessed as Donald J. Trump won the US elections after gaining 265 out of 270 electoral votes, 47 more than what Clinton got, as of this writing.

For a man with no political experience and started with campaign filled with hatred and bigotry, the world is facing one of the most horrendous moments in history. 

Although Trump may have win this game, the real battle has just begun because pretty soon, his days will soon be numbered and let's see how far will Mr. Trump can go when in comes to running the world in the same way he runs his businesses.

Forza Horizon 3: The last Midnight Battle car

Here it is! This is the fourth and the last Midnight Battle car to win in Forza Horizon 3 and by the looks of it, it's a powerful hypercar known as the Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV. Before explaining what's what, care to see how I got this Italian steel into the fray?

Known to be the last Murcielago ever made before being replaced by the Aventador, the LP670-4 SV's 670HP 6.5L V12 engine sounds as glorious as it were five decades ago since the Miura and by unleashing the roar of its ancient V12 engine, you can really go fast on a straight line like a bloodhound and because it has four-wheel drive, the Murcielago SV can really brave through any weather it see fit, although by Horizon standards, it can be a lot tricky to pull one off on problematic road conditions but you'll be a lot fine learning to drive an all-weather hypercar that knows how to break its limits.

Speaking of which, the Lamborghini Murcielago SV is just one of the selected cars on Forza Horizon 3 to have upgrade presets on it and what I found here that it comes with a special Liberty Walk body kit made specifically for a Murcielago like this one. With all that shouty exterior design combined with the feral power output equivalent of an ultra hard difficulty setting on a rhythm game you often played, I might imagine that I am having a hard time handling this car but since this is a four-wheel drive car, feels like it's becoming "piece of cake" than "come get some." Know what I mean?

Anyway, to celebrate my completion of all four Midnight Battles from all corners of the Down Under, I've arrange a special championship made for them. Turns out, even though it's invited for those who are unlocked after winning Midnight Battles, only the E36 M3 and the Murcielago SV got the memo. Anyway, time to roll the camera because this is going to be their moment to shine. Roll the tape!

Well, that was a climactic way to finish all the street races throughout the Land Down Under and put them to good use on festival routes with a little imagination. Speaking of which, while I'm pulling this one off, looks like I got my spot at the Final Showcase and oh no! I forgot to tape the whole finale! Oh well, it was just a showcase event, anyway. Who knew that the finale is not just a final race but rather a showcase event involving a Polaris RZR XP against a blimp? But it was just too awesome to miss an event that I won and not to record it.

Don't worry because to fill this thing in, I will come up with a compilation of showcase events to show how much I worked hard for to bring Horizon Australia on the spotlight. While I'm working on it, I am very honored to see how much manpower I spent driving the best cars throughout this career and while winter really is coming, feels like my work here is never done because there are so much on the list to check, cars to drive, roads to explore, and challenges to complete.

Even though the finale has accomplished spectacularly, this festival will go on without pause until the last event has been played.

Forza Horizon 3: Go looking for some Heavy Slamming

The new Cadillac CTS-V sports saloon may look like a posh executive saloon fit enough to drive through financial districts like a business mogul taking charge with whatever means necessary but while this maybe a business mogul's crony, hiding behind his business suit is a wild hooligan who lives by his rules. Insanity is what best describe this new CTS-V and if you're not very careful with it, this feral beast will throw you out to the woods and left you for dead. Under the bonnet lies a similar 6.2L Supercharged V8 engine that you get from a Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06 but it produces 640HP of power and 630lb-ft of torque, while mated to an 8-speed gearbox.

While this maybe the most powerful Cadillac ever made but watching its insanity unfolded is like ripping off the businesswear and in return, a street thug getup that makes you look like a bad boy looking for some ultra violence. Okay, enough talk about that now because while I'm trying to get a hold with the CTS-V, and on the subject of my day off, some makeovers had to be done to keep the insane businessman looking at its best.

Okay, still insane as ever but on the plus note, a touch of Love Live Sunshine's Mari Ohara adds some spice and Western humor to it. I really love the idea of turning a normal CTS-V into a special CTS-V featuring the same color theme as Mari Ohara from Love Live Sunshine because between you and me, her American accent does smell like death...just like Iowa. Battleship Iowa. (Chuckling). Oops, there goes the PPAP song playing on my phone.

Now, while spending my rest of the day off taking out some street racers and gunning for the last Midnight Battle, I had a bit of a problem...

The idol in the red dress?! What is she doing here? Taking a little day off from the show? Weird. This is like facing off against myself to see how much I've matured but seeing it together is like watching a scene from a TV drama where one slaps another in the face. Anyway, despite my fateful encounter with another Aqours fan, time to get "heavy." I said heavy because Mari said it with an American accent.

After the whole rumble in the jungle, the two are hanging out to the metropolis to do some fun while having a little "Cars and Coffee", if you know what I mean. After their "Cars and Coffee" conversation is over, the two part ways with their smiles on their faces after what happened earlier.

Now, all that's left for me is the final Midnight Battle and what kind of car I'll be getting on the last Midnight Battle? Stay tuned...

Pacquiao still got his moves after winning against Vargas

Everyone thought that after defeating Timothy Bradley a couple of months ago for the third and final time, we might imagine that this is really the end for Manny Pacquiao's boxing career now that he's spending his life as a politician in the Philippine Senate, but seeing him defeating Jessie Vargas, a world welterweight champion, proved us wrong. Very wrong.

Screengrab: Top Rank

Pacquiao tries to prove that the legend still lives in a 12-round fight held at the Wynn Las Vegas, Nevada, and by winning via unanimous decision, this is a definite proof that the legendary Manny Pacquiao still lives, even though he's on a very different position for himself.

By winning the battle against Jessie Vargas, one question comes to mind for the living legend in the world of boxing. "What's next?" That is the question only the living legend has to answer.


Under cover of the battle, another Filipino boxer, Nonito Donaire, joins Pacquiao's fray in an undercard fight against Jessie Magdaleno and he lost. Despite doing his best, Donaire couldn't defeat the undefeated breakthrough boxer and therefore lost his title via unanimous decision.
