1) HOORAY FOR CAR SHOW GIRLS: Cars And Girls At The Chevy Motorama
The Mall Of Asia Ice Skating Rink turned into a Chevy paradise as the carmaker hosted the Chevy Motorama car show from October 9 to October 12. Melting the frozen surface on those dates were the shiniest Chevy rides, impressively modified Chevy cars participating in a contest, and of course, car show babes. You loved that last one didn’t you?

2) DARK KNIGHT CHRONICLES: Michael Keaton Is Still Very Proud Of His Batman
Before there was Bale, there was Keaton a.k.a. the original movie Batman. And at the New York Comic Con 2014 held over the weekend, Keaton—along with other Batman avatars George Clooney and Adam West—was present to address questions about his upcoming superhero movie Birdman.
While Clooney apologized for his turn in the awful Batman And Robin, Keaton admitted that he’s still very proud of his own rendition:
“Having played Batman and being very proud of playing Batman. I never back off that. The idea was bold, interesting, and cool when Tim made it. I didn’t really put it together, Edward did [a superhero movie] too. I just go to work.
When I took the original, I was unfamiliar with comic books. I wasn’t a comic book reader. [Reading the script he thought], this isn’t the way that I see the character but am glad to read it. Then I met Tim the next day, I’m saying [Batman] is this and this, and he was nodding in agreement. So I asked, are they going to make this? Tim said, 'I don’t know. Let’s find out.'”
We wonder which side of the camp Ben Affleck will be in after 2016’s Batman V Superman.

3) FILIPINO PRIDE PICK OF THE WEEK: Paolo Ballesteros Gets Nods From Tyra Banks and TMZ
You know who’s getting the most out of that whole #MakeUpTransformation gimmick that hit the Internet hard a couple weeks ago? Eat Bulaga’s Paolo Ballesteros. With his contouring-powered mimicry of Hollywood biggies Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Emma Stone, to name a few, he’s gotten some huge attention. The biggest fans though have been global brands TMZ, Buzzfeed, Bored Panda, USA Today, and Tyra Banks. The latter has given the talented Mr. Ballesteros—reported to be a great grandson of Filipino artist Fernando Amorsolo—a little shout-out.
