We can't deny that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has revealed too many spoilers before its cinema release this coming December. To fans, it's kind of annoying but for Disney it's a must as it wants to drum up the release of the new saga which has been asleep for decades. And to add to the fanfare, the mouse studio is now busy selling toys even earlier than the film's final cut is done; thus making fans hungry for collectibles-hunting as the practice creates an advance huge demand. It turns out the new characters are massive cash cows. Great toy marketing strategy right? And one of the popular spoilers and cash cow these days is the droid ball called BB-8, its massive popularity even overshadowed the lovable astromech R2D2. Powered by Sphero and other toy makers like Hasbro, the football-like droid comes to real life in different sizes. For Sphero, BB-8 is a mini version that fits on a kid's palm and comes with powerful traitware (behavior software). It's an App-enabled figure that can be controlled via Android or iOS apps. For Hasbro, BB-8 is in a larger size akin virtually akin to that in the film and it comes with a remote control. For both versions, it has features that will amaze every die-hard fan and even future fans alike. A perfect present for kids on a Christmas day, the unboxing video above will show you more how intuitive BB-8 is. We'll see if Sphero will have a Black Friday surprise for everyone. Enjoy watching!

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is home to expatriates from different nations. It is also home to awe-inpiring landscapes that is pulling expats to go on a road trip as a way to combat homesickness and boredom as they are away from their respective countries. A group of Filipino OFW (Overseas Foreign Workers) got to taste the great outdoors with a trip to Thumamah Al Hair Red Sand dunes, where one can ride the ATV bikes during a season when the sun is no longer that terribly boiling hot. As winter season comes near, the desert landscape, south of Riyadh is full of life as people not only spend time driving the big bikes on desert sands but also get to have picnics (sometimes with cooking grilled food) as a sign of camaraderie and relaxation. The accompanying video above encapsulates a story into one event and it is accompanied by my original song entitled DIWATA (meaning fairy goddess), a Filipino song composition I wrote and recorded back in 2000 with my band Majica. The song gives life to our day trip full of adrenaline-filled excitement and nature's wonder. If you want to sing along or understand its meaning, the video comes with a Filipino language caption or subtitle and can be translated to many languages through a YouTube amazing tool - CC which stands for Closed Captions. Hope the translation serve the video right :)
