Kobe, Lebron and the rest of USA team, are they unbeatable?

August 1, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

With Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant & LeBron James, is this US Basketball team unbeatable in the 2012 Olympics?

  • YES (81 votes)
  • NO (19 votes)


81 voted yes, they are unbeatable. So far, they are. In 2 won games (they blasted France and as expected, trashed Tunisia), the average winning margin is 37 points. This differential will go down as the competition heats up and top teams advance. After another “practice game” versus Nigeria, level of play goes up their last two preliminary games, Lithuania and Argentina. But I can’t see them losing a game in these games.  USA can survive off night by multiple players and we will see other stars and reserves picking up the slack. And besides, their mean defense doesn’t allow easy shots, 2nd chance attempts, etc. In other words, they are in complete control. Only super hot 3 point shooting by opposing team and super bad games from 4-5 USA players can result in a big upset. And, I can’t see that happening.

Can LeBron tie Michael Jordan and win 5 more rings?

  • NO (71%)
  • YES (29%)

Total Votes: 105

6 championships is one heck of a feat and is tough to duplicate. Ask Kobe.

So I voted “NO” too and I’ll be writing a full-post about this question/post and will give my estimate LeBron career ring count.

Factoring Dwayne Wade’s decline, Kevin Durant ascent, LeBron built/body, etc., I have him winning at least ___ more. More on this soon.

How bout you, when it is all said and done, how many total rings will LeBron win?

November 25, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

November 12, 2011—bloggers , online writers and seasoned editors came together for One Hyundai Club’s (OHC) announcement: Hyundai Asia Resources Inc.(HARI) is set on giving us the ultimate lifestyle event of 2012– the One Hyundai Club: Life in Style!

First things first: yes, you heard it right. There REALLY is a ONE HYUNDAI CLUB, established on December 2010. It has 13,000+ members already, to date. The One Hyundai Club is the customer loyalty club that HARI,( the exclusive distributor of Hyundai vehicles in the Philippines,) organized to give back to the customers who believe in Hyundai. HARI, with 36 (and growing) dealerships nationwide, now ranks third in the automotive market.

Remember who sponsored that FREE RUN? Yes, it’s the same HYUNDAI that made the ACCENT RUN possible. Hyundai definitely lives up to “Creating Ingenious Possibilities for the People and the Planet.”

So, on January 14, 2012, expect a stylish, “this-is-the-life,” night prepared by HARI. This event shall be their way of thanking OHC members for their support to Hyundai, as they share the modern premium motoring lifestyle that Hyundai motorists are enjoying all- over the globe.

Watch out for these on January 12th:

1. The Launching of the One Hyundai Club Life in Style 2012 Journal
C’mon, Sam YG said it—all the ladies really want that Starbucks Diary. Well, if not that, give them the Belle Du Jour, Figaro, or the Moleskin Diaries. Women love journals, period. You know, like you guys love cars, your PS3s and the NBA. We love diaries and journals –the nice ones anyway. And this OHC Life in Style Journal is not an exception!
Owners of this journal will be treated to inspiring reads by renowed journalists and editors; a schedule of activities for OHC members for 2012; promos and freebies from Hyundai’s 107 partner merchants, to date.

2. Exciting Activities for Each Participant: Yes, you! You and your better half, your other half, or whoever you’re going to the event with.
Whether you’re the sosy-shopper, the food-lover, the classy chic, the certified nerd, the super buff, the sporty one, the boy-next-door, or the doting parent, Hyundai has something prepared for you. Look forward to experience beauty makeovers, cooking demos, indoor wall climbing, rapelling and art classes for kids.

3. Hourly Raffle!
Who doesn’t want to win? Everybody does. Hyundai and its partner merchants prepared nifty prizes for this big event. This is exclusive to OHC members. I’ve heard of the prizes, and trust me—I want to become a member now!!!

The best part about it is that whether or not you own a Hyundai NOW, you can come! This is open to One Hyundai Club Members, existing and potential Hyundai vehicle owners. Admission is absolutely free. HOW?

Log-in and register NOW at for more details. Got a facebook account? Like One Hyundai Club Life in Style too for updates.
Check for the opening of the registration from time to time, though. Registration opens once the details on the venue, schedule, etc. are finalized. Slots are limited, so watch out—you wouldn’t want to miss this “for every YOU” event.


Application is free for existing and new Hyundai vehicle owners. One Vehicle= One Member Card; so if you have an Accent, a Tucson and a Starex, you get three membership cards which you can assign to yourself, or your family members.

If your car’s pre-owned, you’re still eligible for a membership card.

With this, you get access to the latest from Hyundai, exclusive perks and goodies, plus you can earn points from Hyundai genuine parts and Hyundai services as well. ?

Stay with us for more Hyundai updates!
