Let's check out some hot Jerby Roxas pictures

Meet Jerby Roxas (also known as TJ Roxas from Lakan ng Bulacan 2008), a Mr World Philippines 2010 contestant. He didn’t win that contest (the title went to Alvin de Joya) but he was one of the hottest contestants. I’ve seen a few photos from which I’m sure will arouse the senses of most of you. You may visit that site, but for now, I posted a few of these pictures to give you happiness before the year ends.

The sexy Nico Ibaviosa on

From Student/Actor | Height: 5'8" | Shoe Size: 11 | Star Sign: Aries Catch his eye by..."having a bubbly personality and not being afraid to be yourself" | In his own words: "I'm Nico. I'm neat. I love pretty girls and I love to eat."

The sexy Alvin De Joya on

From Entrepreneur | Height: 6‘ 2“ | Shoe Size: 13 | Star Sign: Scorpio | A walking paradox: “I’m a good guy with a naughty side.” | His pet passion position: “The 69” | What turns him on: “Sexy legs. They should be smooth, because that shows that she takes care of herself.” | Famous last words: “Curves are sexy. There’s no doubt about that.”

Raise your hand if you find Mark Canlas hot

Do you find Mark Canlas hot? I hope he took off those shirts and pull of a Diana Zubiri-like stint. Visit the source of this picture and you may find more sexy pictures of local celebrities and models. In less than an hour, 2012 will come to an end, and I sure hope that a lot of us will look forward to a much better 2013. Metro Manila experienced yet again the wrath of Mother Nature this year brought not even by a typhoon but by a powerful monsoon, and it’s the only event that affected me directly, so I hope something like that won’t come our way ever again. Metro Manila is just so full of sexy and smart people, right?

Dingdong Dantes wins second MMFF award for Best Actor

For his role in the movie One More Try, Dingdong Dantes won his second MMFF award for Best Actor. I’m wondering why Star Cinema has to look for someone else outside their circle to play the role. It could be well-played by anyone else from their homegrown talents. I mean Piolo Pascual does not even have a movie this year, right? But nevertheless, CONGRATULATIONS to Dingdong Dantes. I haven’t had the chance to watch any of this year’s film because I lost interest unfortunately, but if I have to watch any of this year’s MMFF films, I might go first with One More Try.

The 'Man of Steel' Henry Cavill and his bulge

It is the destiny of superheroes to wear tight costumes. And consequently every inch of their bodies will be the center of attention. In next year’s Superman movie, Henry Cavill will play the lead role. The most noticeable distinction that all Superman fans see is the costume’s darker costume. But I can see everyone liking Man of Steel’s sexier look.

Now Showing: The Strangers (2012)

From Wikipedia: The Strangers is a 2012 Filipino teen horror film directed by Lawrence Fajardo. It stars Enchong Dee, Julia Montes, Enrique Gil and JM De Guzman. The film was produced by Quantum Films and MJM Productions and will be distributed by Star Cinema in December 25, 2012. It is also one of the official entries for the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival. The story takes places on a family who got lost in a province and start being hunted by The Strangers especially the aswang. After the film was submitted as an official entry to the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival, it was announced that Quantum Films cast Star Magic contract artists including Julia Montes, Enchong Dee and Enrique Gil for the lead roles. Other cast announced includes Janice De Belen, Cherie Pie Picache and Jaime Fabregas. On October 2012, after the official teaser were released, JM De Guzman and Johnny Revilla were added to the cast.

Rodjun Cruz in Miong21's 4,000th post

Miong21 reached his 4,000th post and posted along with it the abs-olutely sexy Rodjun Cruz. What a great find! Miong is probably one of the first few bloggers I know who started blogging in the same year that I started Simply Manila (though Simply Manila is called Experiment 2007 for a year or so). And until now, he’s still active. The rest of the bloggers during our years ceased in oblivion, and maybe found another calling, and that’s great for them. But I miss them and I hope one day, I will see the resurrection of those great blogs. Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS, Miong21! Cheers!

Let's pray for India: 2012 Delhi gang rape case

From Wikipedia: A female physiotherapy intern was beaten and gang raped in Delhi on 16 December 2012, and died thirteen days later while undergoing emergency treatment in Singapore for brain and gastrointestinal damage from the assault. She and a male companion boarded a bus in South Delhi in the evening after watching a film, and were assaulted by five passengers already aboard. She was taken to Safdarjang Hospital, received multiple surgeries, and was placed on mechanical ventilation. On 26 December, she was moved to Singapore for further treatment, and she died on 29 December. As of 21 December 2012, six men, including the bus driver, have been arrested. The incident has generated international coverage and was condemned by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, who called on the Government of India and the Government of Delhi "to do everything in their power to take up radical reforms, ensure justice and reach out with robust public services to make women’s lives more safe and secure". Public protests took place in Delhi, where thousands of protesters clashed with security forces. Similar protests took place in major cities throughout the country. The sex crime rate in New Delhi is one of the highest among Indian Cities, with one rape reported every 18 hours (average).

The Centerfold shoot of Ahron Villena (Part 1)

From (bold; unedited): Ahron is a funny guy at heart, and he infected the Cosmo team with his cheerful nature at his shoot, as you'll see in his outtakes. Find out what he looks for in a girl and his sexiest fantasies in his interview. This is a very light but sexy photoshoot or at least that's how it appeared to me. Maybe because Cosmo is a wholesome page. What I like most are the captions posted on every picture. Ahron Villena is one hot actor.

Next Attraction: Gapang (2013)

The movie is showing on January 9, 2012 in select theaters.

The sexy Hiro Torobu on

From Height: 5' 10" | Shoe Size: 10 | Star Sign: Virgo | Read between the lines: Hiro advises girls to "listen to what we're not saying" | Must-have female traits: "Be trustworthy, faithful, intelligent and pretty." | Beauty or Brains: "Brains, because sensible people are very fun to be with." | Why you should don that button-down polo: "It excited me to unbutton her"

The sexy Dale Dizon on

From Medical Representative | Height: 5’ 9” | Shoe Size: 8 | Star Sign: Libra | The Perfect boyfriend: “I’m sweet, caring, understanding, and very romantic.” | Mind-blowing mattress move he loves: “Licking my nipples.” | Moonlight romance: “I imagine me and my girl on a yacht, making love under the moonlight.” | Looking for his soul mate: “I want a sweet and caring girl who understands my attitude and moods, and knows how to cook.”

The Chris Brown bulge (plus more guys with bulges)

Touche Magazine, one of the blogs I linked to Simply Manila for a long time now (because I want to see updates from that Indonesian blogger) who didn’t return the favor which is fine, recently wrote an entry counting down the top 10 bulges (or group of men’s bulges) of 2012, which I find really cool. It’s the end of the year, and I expect a lot of countdowns or lists in the blogosphere. In fact, I already started one of my two major lists—the Sexiest list. Then early next year, you will see the sixth edition of Simply Manila’s 69 Most Desirable Pinoy Hotties. But, on to this bulge list, we see again the hung-ness of Chris Brown in this picture. Not too long ago, we see him taking a nude picture of himself and, man, his is just too much to take!

Robin Padilla is first Men's Health guy of 2013

Robin Padilla (43) is one of the hottest Filipino actors in their 40s. If he is in Hollywood, he’s gonna be like Jeremy Renner (41) doing action movies and all, but he is in the Philippines where rich filmmakers are busy with love stories and teeny shows that will surely attract Pinoy moviegoers and poor filmmakers are stuck with low-budget indie films. So it’s sad to see many talents wasted in this country and see actors scramble for little roles to earn more money. While the newcomers stick their throats to their mother network looking like parasites, our veteran actors become freelancers and hop from one network to another (like there’s so many networks to choose from). Then there are those who would hop to another world—politics! So, anyway, sorry for ranting this early, I actually just wanna post the first Men’s Health cover for 2013, but then I saw Robin Padilla on the cover and I got nostalgic.

Is this Paulo Avelino or Rodjun Cruz?

We are almost at the end of the year and say goodbye to yet another 365 days of bliss and happiness. I will hold on tight and try to blog as much as I can in the next few remaining days of 2012. This first post for the day of Sunday is to all Paulo Avelino fans out there. May you dream of him tonight! These pictures of him look pensive in a very beautiful way. It looks really dreamy that I can almost picture someone else if I close my eyes a little. Can you see a Rodjun Cruz resemblance? Yes, that’s it! I’m not sure if it’s just me, but, hey, take a closer look.

Tell me who Joachim Milner is

It’s my first time to hear the name Joachim Milner and my first time to see his face, too, and, man, how I love to see new people to fill a few pages of Simply Manila. My lack of interest on local television has proven to be a disadvantage but my addiction to surfing… the net, that is… filled me up with questions on who these new hotties are. So my question to you is, “Who is Joachim Milner?” Tell me why he has sexy pictures like that one above. In time, my turn to tell you more about him will come. He is hot!

Sexiest Beauty Pageant 2012: Miss Universe

I just finished watching Miss Universe 2012 for the second time, and I wanted to watch it again not because I have nothing to do tonight but because I wanted to revisit the sexiest pageant for women this year before we say hello to a new one. Yes, the least on my list is Miss Earth 2012, which was held in some clubhouse in Alabang, Muntinlupa City, Philippines. Through the years, Miss Universe has shown its energy and power like it really is the World Cup of beauty pageants, and it hasn’t been emulated anywhere else. Not even close! Kudos to the Miss Universe Organization for bringing us yet another elegant show!

On Attitude: Jiho Lee & Jason Chee on the cover

So this is the look-a-like of Jason Chee that Manhunt International fanatics have been talking about? Well, yes, they look the same, but most of our Chinese men look the same, right? It’s hard to single out one Chinese man from a group of Chinese people. LOL. I love them. This ‘Attitude’ magazine is probably one of Thailand’s longest running gay magazines to date, much like the Philippines’ Valentino? I’m not sure but I don’t think a Filipino gay magazine still exist today. I miss those magazines, because unlike these new ones, the pictures from the old ones are more real and rawer if you may.

The sexy Jay Gonzaga on

From Student/Model | Height: 5‘ 10“ | Shoe Size: 10 | Star Sign: Libra | Naked Encounter: “I was in  my bedroom and the lights were off. She entered the room and saw me naked.” | Tickle his funny bone: “I want a girl who has a sense of humor and knows how to laugh at herself.” | Sandals or Stilettos: “Stilettos! It’s nice to see a girl wear them. They make her look sexy.” | Major make-out move: “I’d kiss her neck first, then go up to her lips.”

Enchong Dee headlines Metro's body issue

From Demigods (unedited): Enchong Dee at his hottest and most daring headlines Metro's 2013 Body Issue! Shot on the lovely shores of Dahican Beach, Mati City, Davao Oriental, the Kapamilya heartthrob shows off a bolder and sexier side of him that no one has seen before; he and bright young stars Joseph Marco, Jessy Mendiola, David Chua, and Megan Young, modeling favorites Sam Adjani, Miko Raval, Mark Lopez, and June Macasaet, and entrepreneur and stylephile Cristalle Belo bare not just their bodies, but their true personalities in this exciting issue. Grab a copy now!

Sexiest Male Musician 2012: Kyle Amor

Kyle Amor is Simply Manila’s Sexiest Male Musician 2012. Kyle Alandy Amor (also known as Kyle Amor), is an American visual artist, commercial model, singer, and actor of Filipino descent. He first appeared on 1DOL, a musical telesyre on ABS-CBN as one of the band members of Da Vince Code alongside Sam Milby. He was also cast as one of the talents on the teen musical variety show, Shoutout! on ABS-CBN. Kyle is managed by Cornerstone Talents and Star Magic.

Raise your hand if you miss Sam Milby

If you are a fan of Sam Milby, you may visit the source of this picture (Fashion Media PH) to see more from this series of pictures of him in Brooklyn, New York. The Filipino actor, who was from the United States, went to New York earlier this year to try a career in US television and movies, but I guess his attempt was a failure or maybe his perseverance and patience wasn’t just enough. I think that he’s back from the US as we can see more of him locally lately. Well, I’m glad you’re back, Sam!

Will Grant: The sexy fitness trainer

From Mondo di Musica (unedited): Will Grant stands 5'9 and is a dedicated fitness trainer based in Orlando, Florida. In his own words: "I stay busy with training my clients in the gym, training myself and I also having to travel for photoshoots and commercials. I've also recently gotten into natural bodybuilding and men's physique competitions." Well, enough said if you ask me. His body says it all. Just check him out.

Raise your hand if you miss Alken Miranda

Do you find Alken Miranda sexy? From my previous post on Viva Hot Men (bold; unedited): Alken Miranda is the quiet type. He's unwittingly and unintentionally landed on Viva's generous lap and for that, he's considered very fortunate indeed. Well, you know what they say about the quiet type, they’re wild in bed. But the most important question though is, “Where the hell is this guy at the moment?” I’m sure we haven’t heard of him after his stint with the VHM. It’s unfortunate that I wasn’t a big fan before when they had all those videos and sexy songs.

Sexiest Beach Body 2012: June Macasaet

Let’s have one more June Macasaet before the year ends. I’m just glad we’ve seen this guy shine this year. First, he joined that Century Tuna Superbods 2012 (won by John Spainhour), then he hit the runway for Cosmopolitan’s Bachelor Bash 2012. But came Manhunt International, and we saw those glimmering stars in his eyes! He was on my Sexiest list, tentatively under Sexiest Newcomer, Sexiest Eyes, Sexiest Smile and Sexiest Beach Body. But after seeing this picture, I just decided he fits well as this year’s Sexiest Beach Body. What do you think, guys?

Will you watch the number one MMFF movie?

The sexy Todd Sanfield by Rick Day

From OHLALA Mag: YAY! Todd Sanfield is back on OhLaLa, after giving us an exclusive interview back in March 2010 [TODD SANFIELD/OHLALA INTERVIEW PLUS EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS] where Todd talked about his new line of underwear. Today with those amazing photos by Rick Day we get to enjoy Todd, sometimes wearing his new collection ... and sometimes wearing nothing but his fantastic smile. The collection is now available online at Todd Sanfield Underwear. More photos courtesy of Todd Sanfield, mostly NSFW, attention c'est chaud :-) AFTER THE JUMP where Todd has been putting his white underwear to the "wet-test" and yes, they are transparent.

On MMFF 2012: The winners of the 38th edition!

It’s not MMFF without the surprising award categories and winners. This year, let’s see what they have cooked up for their avid fans. Let’s start with the irrelevant awards. The award called the “Best Float” has been there for decades already so I’m not surprised. That’s not just it though! This year they gave out a Male Star of the Night award which was handed to Joseph Estrada (sounds like a courtesy award) and a Male Celebrity of the Night award to Zanjoe Marudo (maybe the real Star of the Night award). Same goes true for the female category. I mean, what’s the difference? This event has been decorative since the beginning, and I can only hope that our major award-giving bodies would step up to show a distinct taste for real art and credible choices. Not much like MMFF which is a joke! El Presidente won most of the minor awards like Best Make-Up. Wait, really? For a historical drama set up in the pre-war Philippines, the movie looks glossier (and dapper if you may). Indeed, Mark Meily is at his best when he does commercials for TV. Brillante Mendoza won the Best Director award for Thy Womb but the movie did not even get any of the three Best Picture awards, and lost to movies like Sisterakas (a slapstick comedy) and One More Try (a master copycat). See the rest of the awardees after the jump.

Now Showing: El Presidente (2012)

From YouTube: The story of Emilio Aguinaldo, the first Philippine Republic's President from his initiation in to the Katipunan by Bonifacio himself,victorious battles and eventually his rise to presidency. The film deals also his about his controversial relationship with Andres Bonifacio and his eventual execution. Starring Jeorge ER Estregan, Cesar Montano, Christopher de Leon, Christine Reyes and Miss Nora Aunor plus a stellar cast.

This looks like a fun series to watch.

Power Boyfriends: Adam Lambert & Sauli Koskinen

Don’t cha wish your boyfriend was HOT like me? Maybe Adam Lambert would sing that song one day. In the Philippines where partnerships like this will be kept probably as long as forever, it’s inspiring for me to see openly gay celebrities going out as a couple. We need to see more of this often so that the world will realize that this shouldn’t be a shocking kind of relationship. So I hope that in this series of posts where “power boyfriends” are featured, the Filipino community can show to the world that we are open-minded and we respect each other’s sexual preferences with pride and without prejudice. I have actually posted some pictures in the past of man-to-man relationships like that of Anderson Cooper’s, Ricky Martin’s, Matt Bomer’s, etc. Right now, let’s meet for the first time in Simply Manila, Adam Lambert and his boyfriend Sauli Koskinen. What a sweet and nice couple, right?

Did you miss the Viva Hot Men?

From YY's Men News Network: The Viva Hot Men - 11 towering sleek physiques are said to out to conquer the feminine/masculine sexual psyche. Meet the Viva Hot Men members:

Allen Dizon is 25-year-old, entertains himself by sweating it out in the tennis court or with some dribbling and shooting at the basketball court. He's the most prominent figure in the group having a number of sexy films firmly tucked under his belt.

Jayson Collis, 22, and Ginoong Filipinas 2002. Jayson has flexed his biceps for the Blue Soon: Fashion Week, Fila and Bench's One Night Only catwalk skinfest.

Jerome Ocampo is an Am-boy who's not easily mistaken for one due to his very Pinoy-carved mug. The nineteener gets off on R&B slash hip-hop goodies even though he hails from grunge pit Seattle.

Miguel Garcia is the jolly "pabling" who has set his sights on showbiz. At 25, he's already graced the pages of Cosmopolitan, modeled for Maru Workshop, and has shown his manly planes in Smart Addict and CAR Air Freshener TV commercials.

Alken Miranda is the quiet type. He's unwittingly and unintentionally landed on Viva's generous lap and for that, he's considered very fortunate indeed.

Dave Anquilo is Biñan's pride. Life won't be complete for this sport and fitness buff if he has not dropped by the gym or dunked it in, like most of his mates, on the basketball court.

Paolo Serrano could be kin to Piolo Pascual, even sharing the same sunshiny disposition as the hunk. But any similarities end there coz the 5'11" model would rather get off at the thought of taming something wild.

Justin de Leon campus varsity/hoop star turned 2002 Bikini Open Bataan Mr. Face of the Night. Justin-groupies lapped on his heels when he roamed the college grounds and even when he sauntered on mall runways.

Antonio Ramirez is a model wannabe and the good son. A self-professed good son, he's no party animal and would still prefer to stay at home with his comic books or busy himself with household chores.

McMeil Dennison is 22 years old and is a ramp and print model.

Adriano Zabala is into mountain-climbing. He is the endorser of Tanduay and Djarun Indonesian ciggies on TV.

These are the Viva Hot Men, no more, no less.

Raise your hand if you find this guy hot

Raise your hand, too, if you think DSP should take more hot pictures like this!

The other 'sides' of Alden Richards

I realized a few things after seeing this picture of Alden Richards. First, that he is a Jericho Rosales look-a-like. That is, before Jericho Rosales became what he is right now. Second, that he is thin. Not sexy thin, but thin thin! Third, that he is not as gorgeous as I thought he was. Well, maybe it’s just this picture. Or the make-up as I’m sure he’s about to play a role here. And fourth, that he is endowed. LOL. That’s just a fantasy guess! My observations could be wrong. What do you think?

Next Attraction: Nympho (2012)

From YouTube (unedited): The story of NYMPHO is all about a poor guy named Patrick (Charles Delgado), who always look for his true love. In his age, he his sexually active it comes to sex, he don't care what ever he does as long as his okay. Only his best friend Glenn (Wacky Macky) found out that even guys and gays, Patrick a touch with them. Until one time, he met Monica (Adriana Gomez) who is a simple girl. Then will found themselves falling in love to each other. What makes you important? Love? Sex? or Friendship?

Bench Holiday 2012 campaign with Luis Manzano

I was never a fan of Luis Manzano but this blog isn’t always about me. So wheter loved or hated, Luis Manzano will be featured here yet again. After all, he was one of the “lucky” few who can always make it to the showbiz industry just by living up to the fact that he’s the lovechild of actor Edu Manzano and diamond star Vilma Santos. Right, Lucky? What do you think of these pictures of him, guys? Catalogue much? So I thought.

Benjamin Alves for Bench Universe

From Hot Guy News (bold; unedited): GMA-7 contract star Benjamin Alves, who was formerly known as Vince Saldana and then as Ben Sapida, walks the ramp for the first time as a Bench Body endorser at the Bench Universe denim and underwear show. It’s my first time to hear that this guy also used the name Ben Sapida. I’m glad he’s decided on Benjamin Alves this time.

Bench Holiday 2012 campaign with Richard Gutierrez

Richard Gutierrez was also featured on this year’s Bench Holiday campaign, and while this series of Bench pictures is very simple that it’s almost boring, their cause is pretty much straightforward—they want the Christmas spirit be felt all over the country. It’s an ad, too, so we don’t know for sure how sincere Bench is, but nevertheless, tis the season to be jolly. La la la la la la la la la! LOL. I hope you enjoyed your Christmas. Be safe this New Year, guys. Pag magpapaputok, gumamit ng condom, este, proteksyon. I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Ciao.

Now Watching: The Golden Pin (2009)

I enjoyed watching this short gay film: The Golden Pin (2009). This is so much better than most of those Pinoy gay indie films I have seen. Watch it and let me know what you think. Long, an avid swimmer, finds himself struggling between the expectations of his Asian family and the demands of his heart. His father wants him to marry soon, but his mother, haunted by a past romance, has other ideas. Told with honesty and compassion, 'The Golden Pin,' asks "Is love more powerful than fate?"

Carlito Rosadino: Mr Gay World Philippines 2012

From Wikipedia (bold): Mr Gay World 2012, the 4th Mr Gay World pageant, was held at The Lyric Theatre, in Gold Reef City, Johannesburg, South Africa on April 8, 2012. François Nel of South Africa crowned his successor, Andreas Derleth of New Zealand. 25 countries and territories competed for the title. See more pictures of Mr Gay World Philippines after the jump.

Queenierich Rehman, Philippines' Miss World 2012 contestant, beatboxes (VIDEO)

When it comes to the talent portion of beauty pageants, the typical menu of items includes singing, dancing, playing a musical instrument and the occasional death-defying stunt (blazing fire batons, anyone?).

Then there is Queenierich Rehman, the Filipina pageant contestant who may singlehandedly make talent acts cool with her wildly impressive skillz (yes, skillz with a z). For the talent portion of Miss World 2012, currently happening in China, Rehman sang... and beatboxed. At the same time. And girl is one hell of a beatboxer.

The 23-year-old contestant, who hails from Pasay City, keeps her act a surprise, having the pageant hosts introduce her act as a mystery. She starts off singing beautifully, crooning like your average (read: above-average) pageant queen. Then the beatboxing begins, a medley that includes 50 Cent, Justin Timberlake and even "Teach Me How To Dougie."

The crowd, obviously, goes wild. Turns out this is Rehman's signature: she bested 24 Filipina beauties at the Miss World Philippines 2012 pageant with the same act (winning the special honor of "Miss Talent") and she names hip-hop music as one of her hobbies in her bio.

Watch the video above and be amazed (and also note her awesome jumpsuit and gold platforms heels, an appropriately sassy choice for her unconventional act, we think). The only way we could be more impressed? If she played the water glasses at the same time.

The final round of Miss World 2012 takes place on August 18, broadcast live from Ordos Stadium Arena in China. SOURCE: Huffington Post

Next Attraction: My Amiga Girl (2012)

Next Attraction: Kaniig (2012)

Glenn (John Canterbury) is an indie film actor who wants to live with his own without helping by their parents. Even his older brother, Bobby (Marco Ronquillo) always they argue it comes of their business. Lucas (Lawrence Manalo) a college bestfriend of Glenn, they living together for five years as bedmates.

Feliz Navidad, my dear readers!

By the time that you’re reading this, it’s already Christmas in the Philippines, so let me greet you a merry, merry Christmas! This is the best time for me to THANK everyone who has supported and loved me in one way or another. I have so many people to THANK actually and that includes you my dear Simply Manila readers. This year has been huge for this blog. It’s Simply Manila’s first time to exceed over 1,500 posts in a year and the previous record was only at 404 in 2011. I believe that this year’s number of posts even exceeds the number of posts from 2006 to 2011 combined. So that’s really something! I drew my inspiration from these numbers and the overwhelming support of my readers. I can’t thank you enough. Enjoy your Christmas. XOXO.

Tis the season to be jolly: Merry Christmas, y'all!

I know my presence subsided a little these past few days but I think I can still live up to your expectations for the rest of the year. And I know that few hours from now, those countdowns to Christmas will be over. I hope that each and every one of us is enjoying this season. Well, actually, I am. I get to spend yet another Christmas with my partner/boyfriend this year and this is our second Christmas together. I’ve had too much red wine already but I will try to stay up so I can try that flying lantern for the first time. How do you call it? Yes, those Chinese lanterns! I forgot what it’s called, but hey, I won’t forget this end of week tradition of mine—my THANK YOU post. So thank you for being part of another successful Simply Manila week.

Bench Body Project: The sexy adventurer!

Bench Body is probably the most popular underwear brand in the country, and with so many celebrities endorsing the product from local superstars to international icons, who wouldn’t find Bench Body to be so appealing? Yes, some hopefuls even find themselves tempted to pose like a real Bench Body model. And we are happy to share those who are worthy of our attention. No matter how ridiculous your pictures are, share them to us [simplymanila (at) hotmail (dot) com] and we will add ‘em to The Bench Body Project series. Here’s the nineteenth picture in this series, featuring this guy from Facebook. How do you find him?

Remembering the victims of the 2012 Philippines flooding

I have so many things running in my head right now, mostly about house renovation as I feel it’s high time for a little upgrade in this house of ours. I live with my Mom, a nephew and a niece, but we have occasional crashers, which honestly irritates me. My only worry about renovating is the flood. The first floor of our of house has been flooded twice since we moved here—first during Typhoon Ondoy (2009) and the second time was earlier this year brought by intense raining and thunder storms. I’m not sure if the Philippine government will be able to stop anything like it from happening again, and so I’m worried our first floor will be impacted by flooding after all these renovations that I have in mind. Most of our furniture and appliances have been destroyed as it was really unexpected. It’s heartbreaking to see something like that be repeated, so I’m hoping I could come up with a wiser decision. It’s ironic to be thinking about something like this during Christmas eve, but perhaps this is also the best time to honor the love ones we lost during that tragic event.

Should we call this sexy guy Jome or Victor?

Let me share this photo of Victor or Jome Silayan as shared first by The Gay Life of VinVin. And I agree with the blogger when he said that Jome is “one of the hottest and hunkiest and yummiest male stars of TV5.” Although recently, there’s been a migration of sexy stars from either GMA or ABS-CBN to TV5, and it’s like a journey that most of us didn’t see coming. Was it worth it for the actors? Maybe they earned more out of their decisions to change the course of their respective careers, but so far I haven’t seen those actors progressing.
