Karl and Mimi each posted photos of landmarks from yesterday's episode of the Amazing Race, which featured the first Philippine leg of the competition. It's great enough that the show featured the Philippines, but yesterday's episode was probably the best this season, in terms of memorable events and suspense throughout the episode.

I can't even pick my favorite moment from the show. No, wait, I can. Did you see Christie in that tank top and those shorts? Damn!

But it's hard to pick my second favorite moment from the show. There was Colin fuming during the yield period and later breaking down while plowing ("My ox is broken!" "I hate you!"). Hehe, kalabaw lang pala ang katapat ni gago. The jeepney part was cool, too, I just wish they had painted the jeepneys "Service from Cavite to any pt. of Luzon" just for reality's sake. I had a kick seeing the teams board the same HM Transport bus from Laguna that we used to ride home from LB.

Oh, and how about that kick-ass taxi race to end the leg? How appropriate. I was thinking about that the whole morning. Colin and Christie showed just how smart they are by taking a taxi all the way from Laguna ("It's illegal to go more than a hundred kph in this highway, so I guess I have no choice but to break the law"), although it wasn't enough to catch up. Chip and Kim boarded a taxi somewhere along South Superhighway.

The Christian models had the bad luck of getting the one driver in Metro Manila who didn't know where Coconut Palace is, which gave the moms time to overtake them. And yeah, it drove me crazy that their drivers took Buendia to get to Roxas Boulevard in the middle of the day when they should have turned at Pasay Road to take Edsa.

And all those jokes about Gloria making epal and welcoming the contestants didn't quite come true, but Luli was there to pick up the slack.

I'm rooting for Colin and Christie, partly because Christie is smoking hot, partly because I enjoy Colin's meltdowns, and partly because no one else is rooting for them. It's probably not too hard for them to find funding for next episode since the Coconut Palace isn't really that far away from the expat district in Manila (and the US embassy is just down the road). Ha, but I bet they get yielded again next episode.


Feeling ko mahirapan sila manlimos... ang pwede siguro nilang gawin rumampa si Colin sa bushes ng CCP, 300-500 pesos agad. Hehe


taena karl, bakit alam mo yung presyo? hehehe


mas mahal ang asking price sa timog, pero malayo sila dun.


may spoiler sa preview nung next episode: brandon and nikki won't be eliminated in palawan (wala namang snow sa pilipinas eh)


i like colin and christie too. pero gusto rin sina brandon and nicole because brandon is so cute. hehe! sana matanggal na talaga yung moms! they're too stupid to reach that far. masayang top three kung panay couples. hehe! :)


colin and christieee!!! i want them to win! or at least not be eliminated in palawan. the race wouldn't be half as interesting if colin wasn't there. female version ni flo! haha

i missed that one! i so need to get a tv. i asked my classmates whether they saw the episode and one of them asked me if i knew where the duck was. of course i had no idea. . .


that episode was probably one of the best things that happened to philippine tourism in recent memory.

it was really funny seeing them try to flag down taxis along edsa, with some of the MMDA people helping them (instead of stopping them). chip and kim were really smart in getting a taxi along SLEX but i thought that was illegal.
