Category 5 Typhoon Yolanda has made landfall and has put a damper on our collective spirit this weekend. While it seems relatively calm in Metro Manila, the same can't be said about our harder-hit brothers in the Visayas where the storm is currently slicing through. Once more, our thoughts and prayers go out to them.
On a lighter note, the week has been action-packed. Just yesterday, alleged Pork Barrel mastermind Janet Napoles appeared in front of a Senate blue ribbon committee where she was questioned hard. But, like we had seen coming, we really barely got any information that would finally break open this case that has gripped the country for months now.
On an even lighter note, Angelica Panganiban celebrated her birthday this week, Filipina pool player Rubilen Amit won at the Women's World Pool, and Heat forward Chris Bosh got a new baby. Making us smile even wider are these mascot mishaps, these sexy cat ladies, the things we've done right in Miss Universe, and yes, the fact that we've reached two million likes on Facebook. And oh, the dazzling Danita Paner, our covergirl for November, also got her turn on FHM's Instasexy.
There was reason to celebrate for hardgamers this week as well as the newest installment in the throat-stabbing Assassin's Creed series emerged from the shadows, and gaming's premiere racing sim, Gran Turismo celebrated its 15th anniversary. For techies, we gave our two thumbs up to the Paktor dating app, these 10 affordable quad-core smartphones, the Sony VAIO Fit, and the new Macbook Pro. With all these cool thingamajigs, we hope your wallet has been fattened enough by your Christmas bonus.
