Watched “Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady” and resolved to myself – I’m gonna watch it one more time! I’ll leave the serious theatre reviewing to the Gibbs Cadizes of this world, but let me itemize the reasons why #LeadingLadyTheMusical is going to be a PETA box-office hit:

1. ENTERTAINING TO THE MAX! Glad to have the same triumvirate of Zsa-zsa Zaturnnah whip this magic sarap up! Thank you, Chris Martinez, Vincent de Jesus, and Carlo Vergara. The ZZZ vibe is strong in this one!

2. POWERCAST! Bito Aguila, Frenchie Dy, Menchu Lauchenco-Yulo, and Markki Stroem. These are big names you will see in the poster. But after the show, you know you should remember more names. More than just big names, talent in the powerhouse cast is overflowing. Worthy to mention, so watch out for them: Nar Cabico, JC Santos, Vince Lim, and Kim Molina.

3. PROUDLY PINOY! The story and music will triumphantly bring the “yaya meal” to fiesta gastronomica levels! In other words, #KPANLL feels good.

4. And finally, Leading Man will give you *nice* dreams long after you watch. Hihi. Imagine towel-clad Markki Stroem singing you your heartsong.

Go watch, and see you in the theatre!

Based on comments recently piling up — lots of MGG readers are taking interest in daddies: mature, manly guys who happen to like other guys. DILFs? Dads I’d Love to (be) Friends with. Hehe!

So… it got me thinking, how about a discreet meet-up for dads and dad-lovers? Yes?

If you are – let me know here << click click!

Hi MGG at sa lahat ng readers:
nakita ko lng sa news feed ko itong Manilagayguy at nag enjoy ako magbasa ng mga posts..
anyways, call me miko (not my real name)
and here’s my problem,
I have been in a 20-month relationship with this guy, my fb crush that I met unexpectedly, tried to ask on a date at yun nadevelop kami.. mejo sikat sya sa social networks kasi gwapo, maganda katawan, the typical hot guy (unlike me na hnd gaano gwapo, mejo chubby) and with it comes the typical problems na marami nagkakagusto, maraming flirt, maraming kachat.
nung bago pa kmi wla pko smartphone sya nka iphone and I can see na may gay dating apps sya grindr, wechat, jackd, hornet, planetromeo lately ko lng nalaman na hindi lang chat ang purpose nung mga apps na yun at lately lang din siguro before kami mag 1 year na nagaway kami dahil sa kachat/txt nya kya napa uninstall ko s knya lahat ng apps na yun.. kya lang mrami pa rin sya ka flirt sa facebook and wechat, and nagkaron pa ng tinder, kaya pinatanggal ko din facebook nalang natira, pero gnun pa din marami p din sya kachat na mas poging lalaki, which made me more insecure and jealous.. mahirap pala magselos, nakakabaliw, nakakapraning, yung tipong pag solo sya sa bahay iisipin mo na may pinapapapunta syang iba, yung gusto mo malaman kung nsan sya anu gnagawa nya.. gusto mo sya laging bantayan..

Hello Migs!

You can call me Nico and I’m an avid reader of your blog. Since your blog also works as an avenue for communication and awareness about everything LGBT, I want to share a story:

Nangyari ‘to nung April 1, 2015 around 2:30AM. Binuksan ko grindr ko para magcruise at syempre maghanap din ng panandaliang aliw. Biglang may nagmessage sakin– nag-aayang mag-threesome. LOOKING FOR 3SUM name niya, 32yrs old at headless/topless ang primary pic niya.

Sinend yung pic niya at yung kasama niya; mukhang okay silang dalawa. Kalbo, may balbas, at malaman ang katawan ang nag-aya samantalang buff at maputi naman yung isa. Ang location nila? Sa tabi lang ng bahay namin (may motel along JP Rizal sa Makati, kahelera ng bakery at 7-11). Sabi ko makikinood na lang ako (dahil mukhang hindi para sa akin ang threesome, given my average look and large body) Pumayag siya na manood na lang ako. Never had any threesome experience, and I never thought of joining one. However, I want to watch and experience seeing two people having live action.

Friends, both online and offline, often ask me — who do you recommend for an evening of relaxing massage?

I ask back, male or female?

They smile, and I know. “Gusto ko kasi yung hard massage.”

Char. You don’t have to give me that. I understand.

Louie is not a particularly hard massager. He gives just the right pressure. What delights is the way he makes you feel his TLC. And perhaps his very Pinoy looks, caramel-skinned, inked to bad-boy perfection. Without further ado, here, salivate.


More photos up ahead!

John is uptight and closeted. He is perfectly happy letting life pass him by, preferring the safety of loneliness for fear of getting hurt. He reluctantly returns to his hometown when his sister, Gibby, drags him to Basaan, the town’s annual festival. There, he runs into Trey, an old friend of his who he is secretly in love with. The vibrant and spirited Trey calls out John’s current way of life, challenging him to take part in it. John finally lets his guard down, but it may be too late for him.

West of Ayala Map v02

One evening, I was at Bellini’s, that old but cozy Italian resto in Cubao X. Towards the end of a wonderful pasta dinner, one of two friends quipped – “I think I want to go for a massage after this.”

The other one says him too, and the next thing I knew, the duo is wailing for me to go with them. “But I only go to this place in QC,” I replied.


I called the manager, asked if I can bring along the two chaps and if they can be given discounts too. In no time, we were on our way.

The first chap got Yael. The other had Aldrin. And I had Allen.

Bayleaf Spa is my home spa. I love it there because the massage is real – not a sorry excuse for some hanky panky; they really do good massage, at least those masseurs I get ha. I always get their SigMa – short for Signature Massage, because while being a real, good legit massage, it does contain some titillating moves, just enough for you to come back for more.

* * *

The evening ended with the 3 of us with ear-to-ear smiles. One of the 2 chaps came to me after, saying – now I know why you come only here.

If you happen to try Bayleaf Spa I highly recommend Allen. If he’s not around, ask for the spa manager and tell him Migs recommended you – he knows what to do :)

– Elena Felix
Person living with HIV

Elena Felix is a mother of four, a single parent, and a person living with HIV (PLHIV). She was as an overseas Filipino worker in the Middle East. Felix was diagnosed as HIV positive in 1994. When she found out about her illness, she did not see a doctor for more than 10 years until she felt a lump in her stomach in 2005. The lump in her stomach was apparently a myoma and she had to undergo an operation. She then experienced discrimination when she disclosed her condition. When Felix saw that her children too were being affected by the stigma, she struggled and decided to fight against it. With the help of some NGOs that are working with PLHIV, she educated herself about the disease. She became active volunteer in the care and support groups that educate on HIV and AIDS and its modes of transmission. As of today, she is the only publicly-known PLHIV in the Philippines.

Felix was part of the founding of Babae Plus, an organization of women living with HIV. She is also a member of the Network to Stop AIDS.
