The Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition Season 4

Here we go again! Hehe.

Welcome to Season 4 of The Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition!

This is a special season because it is the beginning of the “Visa-Free Era” of TARPH. After the first few seasons had teams visiting countries with no visa requirements, this season will be the first time a route can conceivably feature any country in the world. Regardless of visa restrictions.

We would hope that at least after a season or two of international travel, the real TARPH will be able to attempt visiting a wider variety of countries.

While figuring out this route, I stumbled upon a nice little theme that guides the choice of locations and plays into the Final Leg as well. Thus the “Ring of Fire” subtitle for this season.

Again, for many locations, there will be familiar tasks and Route Markers since any TARPH will likely recycle many tasks from other TARs. But one would hope that scouting for the real TARPH will produce some great, fresh original ideas.

So without further ado, here’s Season 4 (!!!) of TARPHDME! Continue reading

I’m Off to the Philippines! =)

It’s that time again! My family and I will be traveling to the Philippines this month. And as it’s always meant, my access to the internets will be limited (or, more likely, nonexistent!) for the entire trip.

So definitely no Kamen Rider Drive or Shuriken Sentai Ninninger. But I may still be able to watch The Amazing Race if local cable/satellite carries AXN. =) I likely won’t be able to post recaps either way though.

Anyway, DryedMangoez.com will still be very busy for the next three weeks as a brand new “season” of The Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition will be rolling out Monday-Thursday! Woohoo!

Hehe.

One thing on this trip though, I’ve got the entire seasons (so far) of Grimm and Supernatural, so I might finally be able to catch up with them! Plus, I’ll be armed with all of the much talked about Kamen Rider Decade and the rest of Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger I have yet to see.

So, I hope everyone has a good May! See you in four weeks. =)
