Swim, dive, and glide like a mermaid!
Spectators gathered at the Quirino Grandstand yesterday afternoon to watch amateur and pro drifters rev up their engines in the first leg of the Lateral Drift Championship Series this 2012.
They had all the cars lined up and had each of the drivers introduce themselves.
The sun is up and the cars are ready to drift! Tandem battle runs started, it’s elimination time! The burning tires and the roaring engines pumped up the crowd. It was so cool watching the chase driver try to get close to the lead driver, like waiting for some car wreck to happen. 😡
These drivers showed masterful execution of their skills as no major car crash happened even during the rain at the latter part of the event.
Congratulations to the winners!

1st – Jet Mathay
2nd – Jesus Romero Salas
3rd – Rad Albano of team Autocraft Drift
Winners for the Pro Division: (2nd row)

GOOD LUCK! and Don’t BREAK a leg… 😛
It’s OFFICIALLY SUMMERTIME! Bring out your flip flops and sunblock, it’s time to hit the beach— or for those in the metro, take a plunge in the pool!
Have a fun, stress-free day here in Splash Island. They’ve got everything you need to enjoy summer. It was my first time to go to Splash Island… and I’m telling ‘ya, I really had a blast.
Splash Island,the largest water park in the Philippines, is managed and operated by Global Gutz Parks Philippines, Inc.. It has thrilling rides/water slides for some adrenaline seeking adventurers and at the same time, they also have amenities for kids to enjoy.
You can bask in the sun and play in the sand along Agos Grandes. It feels like being in a beach- you can rent a kayak, ride the zorb ball, or hit the waves while listening to live music. Ohhh yeah!!!
You want more thrill? Try the zip line or bungee trampoline. How about wall climbing, mini golf or paintball? For some entertainment, they have the Polynesian dancers, fire dancers, and live band. Don’t be shy, go ahead and shake that booty! Hehehe…
WIN a prize with fun games like shooting the ball for Php50… oh, and you can also have your picture taken from their photo booth also for Php50.
Bringing of food/drinks isn’t allowed. Don’t be sad because they have food pavilion and stalls scattered around the park OR you can also have your lunch in the parking lot…no problemo.
Just in case you forgot to bring shampoo/soap/sunblock/swimsuit… don’t ya worry, just go to the souvenir shop and they have those stuffs there.
Here’s a map of Splash Island… make sure you try all the rides… don’t be a chicken. hehe…
Here’s the park schedule. It’s best to check the time each ride/slide opens just so that you won’t miss it. Notice that they open as early as 8am… whoooaaa… I can stay the whole day…
I wanna slide again and again and again… I will definitely go back to splash island before summer ends. I know there are a lot of discount deals on the internet. For more information about Splash Island and promo deals, you can check their website http://www.splashisland.net or Splash Island.
Bring your family and friends for some thrilling, fun, and exciting summer adventure. It’s a clap, clap, clap for Splash Island.
Share us your splash island experience. 🙂
