The Vitara nameplate has always been an important vehicle for Suzuki. For the time being, it’s their only large 4x4, and 4x2 SUV aside from their small, go anywhere SUV, the 3 door Jimny. The previous generation Vitara has been around from 2005 – 2015.  The current generation Suzuki Vitara was introduced in the International market last 2015 as a 2016 model. The latest facelift was launched quietly in the Philippines in early October of 2019.

We have heard so much about this in the past, that Hybrid and full Electric Vehicles (EV) may soon be a mainstream choice in the car industry in the Philippines. This took a while because our Gov't didn't offer any incentives to bring in cleaner and energy sustainable vehicles at a lower price. Also, there aren't any infrastructure like charging stations to support EV charging in public places yet. Other than that, our Government before didn't also allow Registration of vehicles that are not powered by normal combustion engines and lastly, 2 things; 1.

Hyundai Asia Resources Inc., the Philippines' official distributor of Hyundai passenger and commercial vehicles, proudly introduced Hyundai's newest flagship SUV to the Philippine public at the 2019 Manila International Auo Show: the 2020 Hyundai Palisade.

The name Palisade refers to the picturesque and affluent Pacific Palisades community in Southern California known for modern architectural masterpiece homes and spectacular sunsets.

I was reading an online article the other day from one of my favorite Men’s lifestyle magazine about these famous artists and the kind of watches they wear, and I was shocked to notice that writer didn’t even bother or could not identify the kind of watches he featured, and how these watches relate to the lifestyle of these famous gentlemen.  The reason why men buy watches is simply that, we are attracted to them. Watches are, well, the only accessory in our body that WE can understand and maybe a few beads and bracelets to pair with it.

I have just heard of Stuhrling watches over the past 2 years when they became very active in social media advertising. But the watch brand itself has been around for many years. In fact, its history takes us back to the 1800s when Max Stuhrling Sr. lived in Switzerland during the grand old days of watch making.  Lost somewhere in time and history, Stuhrling’s reputation as a watch maker was only revived by its direct descendants in the US in 1999.
