Anthony Bourdain’s Manila Experience on Parts Unknown” Will Give You the Feels
There’s adobo and kare-kare. And then there’s sisig which is best with ice cold beer.
In the seventh season pilot episode of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, he featured the city of Manila, Philippines. The particular episode, which was obviously shot last Christmas, gave a lot of Filipino the feels as Bourdain spoke of the country’s culture and people. Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown is an award-winning food and travel show.
Surprisingly, Bourdain veered away from the usual street food expats are made to try when they’re in the Philippines. There will be no baluts or fishballs in this episode that’s for sure.

Team Galag's Batmobile is made from Lamborghini Gallardo and a lot of carbon fiber.
Now Team Galag, a group composed of wealthy car enthusiasts, took it upon themselves to turn their fanboy dreams into reality. What they did was to take a Lamborghini Gallardo, throw up some good amount of carbon fiber, and use a lot of engineering know-how to transform the car into a real-life Batmobile....
Dance Couple’s Captivating Visual Routine Had All BGT Judges Up Their Feet
Wow, I’ve never seen anything like this before!
By now, you would think we’ve seen all sorts of couple dance routines on these TV talent searches. Well, this couple just proved us wrong.
This performance from visual dance act Another Kind of Blue is unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Believe me when I say you’ll be blown away with what they did on stage of Britain’s Got Talent.
Their act was so amazing all the judges had no choice but to clap non-stop and stand up their feet after the routine. Yes, even the usually-harsh judge Simon Cowell couldn’t resist the charm of their unique presentation.
