Dingdong Dantes: With facial hair or without?

I was at a mall the other day and I saw the latest Men’s Health issue for June in the magazine stands with Dingdong Dantes on the cover:


I was like: (gasps) “Oh my Dingdong…” 🙂 I’m not a fan mind you, I don’t even find him hot before! Maybe its those biceps; its obvious he’s hunkier than his last cover:


Or maybe its the facial hair. He seems more manly that way, hehe. I definitely think he should keep it. What do you think, you like him clean shaved or kinda unkempt and scruffy? 😉


Manila Welcomes International Acts

Huge international acts are set to conquer Manila which is rare so I envy those who’ll be able to catch it so hopefully I’ll be one of them.

It was really great news when it was announced that Ms. Janet Jackson will take her Number Ones: Up Close and Personal World Tour here in the Philippines on Feb. 4. Although, I’m not sure how great the venue is. It will be held on the PICC Plenary Hall which I can understand why, maybe its the ‘formal’ setting of the place. How many is the capacity of PICC anyways? But it will be a blast still, she’s going to perform her greatest hits! My favorites from way back like Miss You Much, If, What Have You Done For Me Lately, Control, Together Again and her later releases such as Feedback, All For You, Call On Me.

Taylor Swift’s concert here in Manila, on the other hand, has been announced since last year and has been sold out since as well. She’ll be performing at the Araneta Center on Feb. 19. I can’t believe how fast those tickets were selling. Those who were able to get tickets are lucky! It sucks that we don’t have a bigger stadium than Araneta, they would’ve accommodated more fans. And I don’t think it’s a good idea to transfer it to the MOA open grounds. She’ll probably be performing more of her Speak Now songs but it will be amazing if she sings her earlier hits.

Meanwhile, even LMFAO will be performing at Club Republiq on Jan. 20. Yes, the crazy duo who came up with the party hits namely Shots and I’m In Miami, Bitch! But I think Pinoy fans will be even more excited of the news that Kris Aquino herself confirmed on Twitter. As one of the producers, they will bring Bruno Mars here in Manila on April at Araneta! Now that’s amazing news, we’ll be waiting.

On A Roll

4 destinations in 3 months. Talk about money-splurging on travel this year. Remember my post last August about my first time in Boracay with KPMG peeps? That’s the first. A month later, I went to Palawan with college berks for some sort of reunion and just this month, as a birthday present to myself, I packed for Cebu and Bohol for some vacay with office friends. Don’t forget though, midway through the year I visited Bolinao and the renowned Hundred Islands in Alaminos. That makes 5 total, now I’m broke. 😀

Cosmo Gone Wild!

The September issue of Cosmo Philippines is out now featuring Agua Bendita star Andi Eigenmann. Meanwhile, Sam Milby covers the annual CosmoMen booklet containing 69 gorgeous bachelors and 10 hot centerfolds posing with wild animals for the ‘Gone Wild!’ theme this year. Some names to watch out for are Christian Bautista, Rocco Nacino, Joross Gamboa & Carl Guevarra. Shouldn’t be hard to figure out why its Cosmo’s bestseller every year. 😉

Island hoppin’ in Anawangin!

A much-needed break. A well-deserved retreat. On the beach is where we spent our long weekend last November 29 and 30. It was great! Tiring but worth it, what’s a little exercise every now and then? In the world of business it can get toxic and me and my officemates well, we know just the thing to do to detoxify. Plus, its our batch anniversary!!! 😀 Putting up with audit for 2 years is a hell lot of achievement! So we felt we needed to reward ourselves and when opportunity presented itself we said goodbye to the busy streets of Ayala Avenue and hello to the amazing scenery at Anawangin, Zambales.
