Globe Slipstream at BGC

  I had so much fun today watching Marlon Stockinger test his F1 race car at Globe's Slipstream event held at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Heck, I had so much fun just seeing an F1 race car in the flesh! And all those super cars... ooh la la! There really are no words to describe how much of a treat it is for the eyes and especially the ears. Hearing all those super cars in high rev made my heart skip a beat, and when it was that F1 race car's turn...I think I forgot my name there for a moment.

This was such an awesome experience. You rock, Globe for doing this. I have one regret though, I should have went to the starting point so I got to see Marlon Stockinger. I had no idea he was so dreamy! :)

No matter what I say to describe the sound and presence of an F1 race car, I won't do it justice. So watch and enjoy a little car porn here...

And for the ladies, I have a little eye candy for you too. How hot is Marlon Stockinger? :)

DIY: Cleaning the distributor

I was so bummed a few days ago when Ace's engine (my Honda Accord) had a hard time starting up. It had a strong crank but didn't want to go all the way for some reason. I just got a new battery so that can't be it. And Ace just got the full treatment at my trusted auto-shop about a month ago. IE., changed timing belts, changed spark plugs, cleaned the servo and throttle assembly. The whole shebang. So what could this be?

I consulted a good friend of mine/ Accord guru and he recommended that I check my distributor and do a little D.I.Y. to rule out an electrical problem. So here's what teacher Ken instructed me what to do...

This is the reason why we thought the distributor was the culprit. I got this from underneath the distributor. It was leaking oil. Oil inside the distributor will make it harder for the electricity to travel. So I removed the cap and cleaned the inside.

Another a-hole JAC Liner bus driver

I have always thought some bus drivers (I'm trying to be nice by saying some, not all) are reckless, inconsiderate jerks. A very good friend of mine shared this story with me today about an A-hole JAC Liner driver and I'm sharing this in hopes that it will go viral.

"Mom slipped near Yulo condo yesterday after she alighted a Jac Liner bus from Binan (the driver forced her to get off in dangerous area, the foot of the skyway bound for Don Bosco St.)... she must have panicked and in her attempt to hurry she slipped, hitting her head on the pavement causing mild lacerations & bruises at the back of her head (and lots of bleeding)... she managed to ask a passerby to call on the guards of our condo and they immediately responded by calling my kids and getting a cab to take her to makati med... the contusion left a large bump and hematoma... CT Scans on her head and neck as well as xrays on her spine and pelvis showed normal/no significant damage/no fracture/no internal bleeding... we were released before 12mn last night and she is now resting in the condo... as with all physical trauma, pain will linger for several days so she would appreciate some quiet time to rest.."

He could have easily killed my friend's Mom! JAC Liner, your drivers are incompetent pricks that don't deserve to be behind the wheel, and be responsible for countless of lives everyday. But I'm sure you know that already right? Who cares about the passengers as long as you're raking in big bucks. A big fat juicy middle finger to you, JAC Liner.
