Where will you be this summer?

Folded & Hung is asking us the same question that we hear from most of our friends: Where will you be this summer? While I am on the beach almost every month, I am more excited to hear your plans and suggestions for those who have the luxury to spend extended weekends away from Manila and their employers. I’ve checked on Folded & Hung’s summer collection this year, and I found very little items to choose from. But looking at the pictures of Sam Milby (see below), it seems only a matter of time this brand releases their art pieces. Sam Milby, looking good man!

Nico's Diaries: Ang Unang Pagsabog — Part 1 of 4

Nico ang itawag mo sa ‘kin at ito ang mga totoong kwentong gusto kong ibahagi sa inyong lahat bilang ensayo ko na rin sa pagsulat. Nasa late 20s na ‘ko ngayon pero babalikan ko ang mga pangyayari sa buhay ko na siguradong magpapasaya ng araw mo. Sisimulan ko ang series na ito sa pagbabahagi ng unang karanasan ko sa sex. Ito ay nangyari noong 14 years old pa lang ako at bagong salta pa lang sa Manila.

Nag-decide ang Mama ko na iwan na namin ang buhay sa probinsya dahil hindi rin naman sila magkasundo ng Papa ko at naging magulo na ang takbo ng buhay namin bilang pamilya. Nanirahan kami sa isang paupahan sa Quezon City—merong maliit na porch, maliit na sala, maliit na kusina, maliit na banyo at dalawang maliliit na kwarto.

Hindi ko in-expect na ganoon pala ang unang magiging bahay naman sa Manila, dahil noong nasa probinsya pa lang ako, nakikita ko sa pictures ng Mama ko at mga kapatid ko (na nauna ng lumayas patungong Manila noon) na magaganda ang structures ng mga bahay dito. Nadagdagan pa ng mga sinaunang pelikula nina Sharon Cuneta ang idea ko na ang mga common communities sa Manila ay malalaki, maluluwag ang bawat lote, lahat ng bahay ay may second floor, garahe, katulong, swimming pool, at kung anu-ano pang ka-sosyalan na tumatak sa isip ko. Meron din namang ganoon, pero nakita ko lang ‘yon sa mga subdivisions sa Makati tulad ng San Lorenzo Village at Dasmariñas Village. Sa ibang cities, mas marami ang squatter areas. Kung hindi man squatter areas, “third world communities” na hindi organized ang pagkakaayos ng mga bahay, iba-iba ang kulay ng pintura (ang iba walang pintura at kita ang bakas ng mga hindi natapos na renovations), maraming tambay sa mga kanto’t sulok, maraming mga batang naglalaro at ang karamihan ng tao ay hindi ko mawari ang pag-uugali. Kulang na kulang sa urbanidad!

Sa bahay na inupahan namin noon ng ilang buwan, may nakikitira kaming mga malalayong kamag-anak paminsan-minsan. Isa na dito ay ang pinsan kong si Kuya John (at tulad ng pagpapakilala ko bilang Nico, ang John ay hindi rin tunay na pangalan), na isang contractual worker sa kung anu-anong employers na noon ay hindi ko pa lubusang maintindihan. Basta in lay man’s term, or para sa ‘kin, isa s’yang construction worker. Batak ang muscles at laging nakahubad sa loob ng bahay dahil na rin sa sadyang mainit at hindi maaliwalas na panahon ng Metro Manila.

May kapayatan si Kuya John at dahil nasa construction site s’ya halos araw-araw, makikita mo sa mga braso n’ya at pangangatawan ang mga batak na batak n’yang muscles. Walang tabang makikita sa t’yan. Kapag may mga iba pa ‘kong pinsan sa bahay, naririnig kong pinag-uusapan nila ang tungkol sa mga experiences ni Kuya John sa bakla. “Grabe, ‘tol, iba kamandag mo sa mga bakla!” At dahil hindi ko naman sinasabi sa kanilang lalaki din ang gusto ko, hinahayaan ko lang silang mag-kwentuhan pero sa totoo lang, nabwi-bwisit ako sa homophobic undertone ng mga kwento nila at sa kawalan ng paggalang sa damdamin ng ibang tao.

Kahit noong mga panahon na ‘yon ay nagsisimula na ‘kong mag-pantasya sa mga lalaki, kailanma’y hindi ko pinagnasaan si Kuya John. Pero minsan may mga pangyayari sa buhay natin na sadyang hindi mo akalaing mangyayari.

Isang araw habang nakahiga ako sa kama, nakaramdam ako ng kakaibang sarap sa katawan. Nakatihaya ako noon, nakatingin sa ceiling ng kwarto, inunan ko ang kaliwang braso ko habang ang isa nama’y nakapasok sa loob ng briefs ko. Hinihimas-himas ko ang titi ko pero hindi ko pa alam noon ang salitang “jakol” o salsal. Basta sarap na sarap lang ako habang hinihimas ko ng dahan-dahan ang titi ko. Ibang sensasyon ang nararamdaman ko noon. Para akong dinuduyan. Para akong lumilipad. Para akong sinasamba ng mga tao. Nagulat na lang ako nang biglang may lumabas na puting malalapot na liquid mula sa loob ng namumula kong titi.

Sa sobrang sarap na naramdaman ko, hindi ko namalayang inilabas ko na pala sa briefs ko ang titi ko. Hindi ko namalayang pulang-pula na pala ito sa galit. Kumikintab sa bawat galaw. Hindi ko napansin na sobrang lumaki s’ya. Kailanma’y hindi ko ito nakitang lumaki at tumaba ng sobra. Doon ko na-realize na ito na pala ang una kong pagsabog. Doon ko na-realize na binata na ‘ko. Doon ako unang nakakita ng tamod. Doon ko naisip na hindi ko na mararanasan ang tinatawag na wet dreams. At nagpapasalamat ako dahil nalasap ko ang bawat sandali ng unang pagsabog ng pagkalalaki ko.

Mula noo’y napapadalas ang paglalaro ko sa sariling titi. Sinusubaybayan ko ang bawat paglaki nito hanggang sa ma-realize kong gifted pala ako. Pinagkalooban ng malaking ari na hindi kalauna’y naging masarap na putahe para sa higit sandaang kapwa ko lalaking mahilig sa titi.Pero bago iyan, dito muna tayo sa kwento kong pinainit ni Kuya John.

What is Jake Cuenca doing?

In this self-portrait taken probably only few weeks ago, Jake Cuenca is seen marveling over at his own sexy body. With hundreds of naked pictures all over the internet, here’s wondering how Jake Cuenca still felt the need to take a photo of himself and put it someplace where people can see his body. It looks like those Bench Body pictures aren’t enough to convince him of his sexiness or boost his ego. Or maybe he just wants to display his new phone? Or document his first head shaving experience? Help me understand, folks.

Patrick Garcia is on fire

Patrick Garcia has been in the local show business industry since I was a child, but he’s rarely featured in this blog. In fact he was featured only once. Now that I bumped into these sexy-ish pictures of him on Facebook, I guess it’s time that his inner naughtiness graces the screens of Simply Manila. Do you think this young father has what it takes to do sexy? If you can, watch ABS-CBN’s Apoy sa Dagat and you might just see yet another Patrick Garcia naked flashes every now and then.

Seeing double: David Beckham treats his fans as he shares pictures of himself in boxer trunks


Becks, 37, is sure to make a lot of fans happy as he delays wearing his Paris Saint-Germain kit in favour of some tight boxer trunks. With his toned and tattooed body on show, the professional footballer looked better than ever with his hair perfectly styled and his best pout on display. The hot shots of Beckham got a great reception from his fans after the stylish gent posted them on his Facebook page.

He wrote: 'Here are a few campaign shots from my latest H&M range. More to come this week...' The two images had combined likes of just over 310,000 and over 7000 positive comments with one fan writing: 'oh my my heart is fliping and floping, what a man'. (sic) The father-of-four has put in a lot of effort into his new campaign and enlisted the services of good friend and director Guy Ritchie. The Sherlock Holmes director took the helm for the soon to be aired television advert that shows Becks strutting around in his underwear.

David’s move to play football in Paris has landed him in a row over taxes as he says he will receive just the minimum wage while the rest of his pay package is donated to charity. The deal means that high French taxes do not make a dent in his fortune while he plays for Paris St Germain. This has angered many French, including one MP who mocked Beckham’s accountant for saying the former England captain will work for only £2,000 a month. 'He will be paid less than my parliamentary assistant!' said conservative Gerald Darmanin. 'Be serious!'

Beckham’s arrangement involves limiting his contract to five months, keeping his family based in London, and saying he will give his salary to charity. All of this enables both Beckham and PSG to concentrate on making millions from the ex-England captain’s image rights, while paying far less tax. The £2,000-a-month salary represents the minimum wage for professional footballers in France. SOURCE: Daily Mail

Tatum confirms Magic Mike to flex muscles on broadway

Magic Mike film star Channing Tatum told Access Hollywood, "We are doing the Broadway version [of Magic Mike]," but that he will likely not be taking part in the stage production. "I don't think anybody wants to see me sing. Give me some time to work on it and then maybe."

Even if Broadway isn't in Tatum's future, he announced last summer that he will be returning for the film's sequel.

As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Reid Carolin, screenwriter for the film, is currently working on a 'spin-off' of the movie, which he plans to bring to Broadway as a new musical. "We are working on it as a Broadway show, which would be a different story, more of a romp, more of a fun night out at a club with a story," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm almost more excited about that than the movie because I think it's the perfect thing for women to go see on Broadway, to be participants in the show."

Deadline.com has since noted that the musical is gunning for the Great White Way in the summer of 2013. The show will reportedly be produced by Tatum alongside Carolin under the banner of their Production Company, Iron Horse Entertainment, alongside the film's director Steven Soderbergh, Gregory Jacobs, and Nick Wechsler.

Steven Soderbergh's MAGIC MIKE opened in theaters on June 29th. The drama stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello and centers on a rebellious 19-year-old kid (Pettyfer) looking for independence from his family. He meets Magic Mike (Tatum), who seems like the perfect role model- he's got a nice car, a nice apartment, and a seemingly endless supply of women. He also happens to be a male stripper.

Did you miss Simply Manila?

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog, and I think it is God’s way of saying that I have to shift my priorities in life towards something else. This actually started when Google or GoDaddy took away my blog domain just because I got delayed for over a month, and over a month later, I’m still BITTER. But that doesn’t mean that I won’t update Simply Manila. This is already part of my life, so that won’t just happen. Ciao for now.
