Wazzup Pilipinas!

Enjoy seamless coverage under any outfit with Jockey Skimmies Slipshorts. A breakthrough product in women’s intimate wear, Jockey Skimmies is what you get when you cross a half-slip with shorts, the kind you might wear underneath a too-short dress.

But Jockey Skimmies are not shorts – they are the perfect undergarment for extra coverage and added comfort. Made of silky-smooth fabric, a pair of Skimmies glides beautifully under skirts and lets tight dresses skim lightly over your thighs. It has just the right amount of stretch to smooth down your thighs and lower abs and a comfortable waistband keeps everything in place without causing unflattering bulges.

Jockey Skimmies are designed for everyday wear. No matter how quickly you walk, they won’t roll up or grip uncomfortably. A blended cotton gusset is sewn onto the inner thigh to prevent chafing and discomfort, while a triangle back construction allows for an increased range of motion. Thanks to its lighter-than-air material, Jockey Skimmies can be worn comfortably in the summer and won’t trap heat even in the hottest of days.

Jockey Skimmies are available in nude, black and gray. Try them for yourself!

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Manila Auto Salon (MAS) 2013, a four-day event for car enthusiasts was held at the SMX Convention Center last November 14 - 17. The preparation of the Car Porn Racing team was long and hard but everyone was excited as this was the first time all four RWB-Porsches from the Philippines will be showcased for the country to see. All efforts paid off as RWB Victoria, General, Akira and Ellise made heads turn and left people in awe. We did not need hot models to draw a crowd. The RWB's gathered their own crowd.

The booth was jampacked on the first day as fans lined up to the meet and greet the RWB legend, Akira Nakai. 100 lucky fans were given a chance to meet him and take home a Nakai signed poster.

Celebrities which included SamYG, Dianne Medina and Ramon Bautista were sighted taking pictures and hanging around the RWBs. In absence of and sorely missed Car Porn Director, Ian King, Joey Mead King showed full support by visiting Victoria and happily posed for everyone. She showed the crowd how to definitely model like you mean it. Our booth has been one of the busiest as limited edition items from Hoonigan and Victoria Court were sold and the last batch of Victoria Court Elite black and Pink cards and merchandise were given to participants who like our Facebook fan page.

The Michelin Latitude Cross S3 Masters The Slippery Welsh Forests


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Wales Rally GB, the final round of the 2013 FIA World Rally Championship, lived up to its reputation as one of the most complex events of the season. The mud and extremely slippery Welsh forest tracks proved a gruelling test for the drivers, but the soft-compound Michelin Latitude Cross S3 enabled them to produce some outstanding performances and put on an exciting show for spectators.

This is an event that traditionally throws rain, wind, fog and sometimes even snow at competitors, but this year’s weather conditions proved less delicate than expected. Even so, the sky remained threatening and the temperatures were chilly throughout, and the absence of rain had a direct influence on team strategies since the crews had to contend with big differences in the amount of grip they encountered compared to what they had come across during their rainy recce earlier in the week. More difficult still was the thin layer of mud that coated the rocky base and made it as slippery as if it were covered in a layer of wet moss.

Despite these unpredictable and constantly shifting conditions, the crews were able to count on the consistency, performance and grip of their Michelin Latitude Cross S3 tyres.


Epson Launches World’s 1st Large Format Ink Tank Printers


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Epson has launched the world’s first large format sign printers that feature high-capacity ink tanks: The 44-inch Epson SureColor SC-B6070 and the 64-inch Epson SureColor SC-B7070.

Designed for high quality indoor signage printing, the high capacity ink tanks of these printers use original Epson dye-based inks and can be refilled even while the printers are in operation.

These printers represent a far superior solution to third-party ink tanks that are not made by the original printer manufacturer where refilling requires one to stop the printer, and there is no warranty coverage for their installation or else when non-original inks cause damage."

Anderson Cooper Versus Korina Sanchez : Who Do You Believe?


Wazzup Pilipinas!

First it was Arnold Clavio, then now its Korina Sanchez. WTF Philippine Media??? Could someone build a CNN Philippines network! Let the truth be known!

It's pathetic how a broadcaster would rather argue and bicker with an international news icon like Anderson Cooper rather than actually focus on helping her own country. How does one find time? Korina Sanchez should learn ethics from CNN and not just open her mouth to whatever her emotions dictate.

That's 11 million people affected...which is 10% of the country's population... From Guian, Western Samar to Coron, Palawan... the breadth of the country composed of 7,000+ islands.
 
Logistics is really poor here in the Philippines and Anderson noticed that by pointing out the lack of personnel on the field. Another example of 'Filipino time', always late... Sadly, this doesn't get address often since everybody seems to be "used" to it... everything is slow here.
