It’s past noon and I just woke up — was at Big Papa last night. Yes, that gay bar in front of KIA in Pasay just off Tramo. It was nothing spectacular. Entrance fee was Php250 (non-consummable), and each customer is required to order 2 drinks at least — SanMig Light was at Php130 each, so yes it was kind of a rip-off. Each dance routine of the macho dancers was the same as the previous one, and the same as the next, except for one macho dancer who bumped his head on the stage for overzealousness, a great comic relief in a set of boring body gyrations. Nothing much to say but I thought there were more eye candies in Adonis. One of my uber excited companions wasn’t too happy too when we left the place. I can’t blame him, he lives right across Gigolo in Timog Avenue.
This particular Provoq photo is so beautiful. The shot was so artistically composed! It makes me aspire to be a male bodyscape photographer!
The gays have spoken, and they have chosen the 2006 Gays’ Choice – Hunk of the Year. It’s Zanjoe Marudo, people!
I already featured David the Coconuter in this blog before. This time, here are videos of his extraordinary journey in the Philippines, as documented by ABS-CBN’s Nagmamahal Kapamilya with Bernadette Cembrano. (In fairness, for a Fil-Am like him, his Tagalog is very good!) When he started talking about his family in the States, I couldn’t help it but my tears just kept flowing down my cheeks. Hay, drama! May he find his “perfect coconut”! (Kung single lang siya sana, love ko na siya! hehehe!)
Jake Roxas, where are you now? A couple of years back, the rumor mill painted Jake as this guy who was frequently hanging out in Gold’s Gym in Glorietta, “parang carinderiang bukas sa lahat ng gustong kumain,” as long as the customer was willing to shell out Php15,000. Definitely not your typical carinderia fare! I saw him in person a long time ago, in one of those Starbucks coffee shops in Makati. While he did not exude any natural celebrity, with him around, testosterone filled the air.
Jake Roxas: Bed
(This post is dedicated to a fellow gay blogger, Mandaya Moore who just ended a 5-year relationship with his live-in partner, Kulot. This is also dedicated to all those who, at this point in their life, are holding on to things/emotions/persons they should have let go a long time ago.)
Are you there things in your life that you know you need to let go? And yet you hold on to them, as if your dear life depended on them? It may be a material possession, a rotting job, a relationship with no direction… it ain’t easy I know, but if it is the best option, then let it go. I would like then to share this to you all — an excerpt from Paulo Coelho’s essay, “Closing a Cycle.”
Do you have a straight guy as a best friend? Or maybe even just a super close guy friend who is straight?
If yes, I have some questions for you.
Dante Balboa was a professor at the Far Eastern University, until he took a leave of absence, and decided to concentrate on his graduate studies at the University of the Philippines. Ironically, Dante was also a former male “boldstar” and appeared in “ST” movies produced by the infamous Seiko Films. He was Mr. Young Philippines 1997 title holder, and Manhunt Philippines 1998 second runner-up. I saw him recently essaying the role of Claudio in the Filipino version of Hamlet (translated by Rolando Tinio, directed by Tony Mabesa) at U.P. Diliman. Playing the role of Claudius, he indeed had a regal presence on stage. Sadly, his acting talents are not at par with the demands of this Shakespeare drama. The evening I watched, he was buckling with his lines all throughout the play — and it was so distracting. Perhaps his old photos would speak better?
On Thursday, November 23, 2006 at 11:59 PM, the voting for Gays’ Choice – Hunk Of The Year 2006 will be stopped, and the winner declared.
Who will be the first ever Gays’ Choice – H.O.T.Y. 2006? As of writing, Dennis Trillo is on top, overtaking Zanjoe Marudo just today who is at close second, while Enchong Dee is tailing behind so closely with only 1% difference. If you have not yet, vote now! (see sidebar) How will the gay readers of this site decide? Well, watch out for the announcement on Friday, November 24!
