First-timers Dominic, Markki, Martin & Dennis at The Naked Truth


I grew up reading headlines about Bench fashion shows with Richard Gomez and Jomari Yllana making news. For almost two decades now, no other local brand has tapped more celebrities than Bench. We saw a take over from Gomez and Yllana to Wendell Ramos and Dingdong Dantes. A new generation came after highlighted by Jake Cuenca and Richard Gutierrez. Then we have the new favorites including Paulo Avelino, Joseph Marco and Enchong Dee.

Jake, Richard, Paulo, Joseph and Enchong still made waves at the runway last night but the newbies were also trending topics on social media. Their first time on the ramp definitely made this year's Bench Show more interesting. It would've been boring if not for Markki Stroem, Dominic Roque, Martin del Rosario and the dashing Dennis Trillo, right?

Bench The Naked Truth Photos


After being postponed because of bad weather, Bench's 2014 fashion show The Naked Truth went on with the expected spectacular display of skin at the Mall of Asia Arena on September 20. I know you don't want to read and can't wait for the photos. So, here they are. I'll give you the power to choose who is the hottest from among a throng of Bench's celebrity endorsers.

Early Christmas Shopping with the Cherry Cosmos


It's an all important trip to the department store today. First, I am excited to buy a few decors to bring some Christmas spirit to our little apartment. I thought this will be a great surprise to Joms as we will be celebrating our 19th monthsary this weekend. Also, since our Mt. Pinatubo private jet trip is cancelled because of Typhoon Luis, we'll just stay at home and I'll will be cooking some vegetable dishes instead. I hope my sudden acts of thoughtfulness will work this time. 




For this huge job (If my mom is reading I've imagined her react: "What huge are you talking about?), I got a little help from a new friend -- my Cherry Cosmos. Released last year, it's only now that I am taking a second look at this proud-to-be-Filipino product. When I was handed the gadget last week, I found it too thin and too light even with the battery inserted.

A Cosmo Bash Diary from the Front Row

 Little boy no more. Hey girls, this is Sam Concepcion now.


It was about to rain but it felt really warm outside the World Trade Center in Pasay. I saw long lines for the VIP, Sponsors, Advertisers, Media and the General Admission A & B entrances but everyone was in a good mood. This is one of those rare moments when you can see the Class A & B crowd patiently waiting for their queue to get inside a building wearing their leather and animal-printed outfits. All for a glimpse of topless men.

Free Shows at Resorts World Manila's 5th Anniversary


It's the second of the 3-month long 5th Anniversary celebration of Resorts World Manila. And just like the previous years, its concert venues are full-packed with great entertainment. That could be an inaccurate statement. There is something going on every day in Resorts World!

Resorts World Manila continues to offer something that they are known for, breathtaking acrobatic performances. This is a duo from the show Spectacular which you can watch every night except Wednesdays from September 13 to September 21. Get the full schedule here: www.rwmanila.com


Bringing the fun several levels up from the everyday occasions, RWM opened their anniversary salvo two weeks ago with the Rockin' 5: Free Anniversary Show held last August 28 at The Plaza. Some of us might not find RWM a great place to visit when you're on a tight budget but these free concerts are giving us more options.
