“Zsazsa Zaturnnah zoars,” writes Gibbs Cadiz. Through his intercession, and with the kindness of Vince de Jesus, yours truly got invitational tickets to yesterday’s premiere night showing of the movie starring Alfred Vargas, Chokoleit, Rustom Padilla, and Zsazsa Padilla. The premiere night turned out to be a premiere nightmare.
Hope you enjoy these pics even if they are quite dated! (From StarStudio Magazine – US/Canada – May 2006.)

“Dear Migs, thank you for having this blog. I visit it everyday, and it was my bf… uhmmmm, ex-bf, who told me about it. Sadly, we broke up just recently. Last night, I was at Bar Uno, yung bagong comedy/karaoke bar diyan sa Timog Avenue na tambayan ng mga PLU. I was with a group of friends, having fun, until may isang guest na kumanta ng “Half Crazy” ng Freestyle. First stanza pa lang nung kanta, nangingilid na luha ko. Parang tinamaan ako ng kidlat. Naka-relate ako masyado.
Inspired (or aroused?) by McVie’s post on Mandy, a naughty young thing working as a masseur for a legitimate spa in Quezon City, I and 2 other friends went to the same legit spa. Maybe I won’t mention the facility’s name but as a hint (na sobrang madaling hulaan) I’m including a satellite photo of its location here (see photo above). Here’s a blow-by-blow (!) account of what transpired.
Metro Magazine’s year-ender double issue (December 2006 – January 2007) featured Enchong Dee, Carlos Concepcion, Doug Cramer, Jason Moss, John Paul Escobal, Patrick Garcia, and Roman Prudkin. I have 3 words to say: Sexy, sexy, sexy!
I read the following post in Jun Lana’s Friendster Blog. (Jun Lana is a Palanca awardee, and a writer/director in Philippine showbiz.) Why am I featuring it here? First, it is sooooo candid and funny. Second, and more importantly, I think each one of us gay folks can learn something from it — an interview-interview-han between close gay friends — about love, loss, growing old, and being gay. Here’s the full post copied here.
What follows is an interview I did with my very good friend Ed. Syempre hindi niya totoong pangalan. Ed is 45 years old. Gay, of course. Straight acting. As with most gays, achiever si Ed. Fashionable. Guwapo (naging artista siya for a time), despite his age. This Christmas, hindi magse-celebrate si Ed. Kahihiwalay lang kasi nila ng boyfriend niya. They were together for 15 years. Siyempre affected ako. Kasi bakla rin ako at nasa isang relasyon. Ed is now based in HK, 5 years na sila doon ng partner niya. Kaya madalas sa IM na lang kami nagkukwentuhan.
Anyway, mula nang makipaghiwalay si Ed, gabi-gabi ko na siyang ka-IM. Kino-console, pinapayuhan. Last night, bigla ko siyang tinanong kung pwedeng interbyuhin ko na lang siya at ipa-publish ko sa blog ko. What for? tanong niya. Sabi ko, wala na kasi akong maipayo sa kanya. At paikot-ikot na lang ang usapan namin. Baka magandang therapy if I assume the role of an interviewer, something good just might come out of it. Eto ang naging resulta. Ruminations on love and loss, growing old, and yes, being gay.
John Lapus recently took DJ Mo’s hot seat in his Wednesday morning radio show (Good Times / “Forbidden Questions”) If you feel like getting some juicy forbidden answers to DJ Mo’s Forbidden Questions, then read on. Frankly, I thought DJ Mo should have asked more controversial questions like, “Who among local male celebs have you done ‘it’ with?” That would have been a juicier scoop!
Actor and swimmer Enchong Dee, just turned 18 last November 5, is preparing for the 2008 Olympics in China.
