Every region in the Philippines has a signature dish: the sisig of the Kapampangans, the spicy lechon of the Cebuanos, the crispy bagnet of Ilocos. All of it prove our creative fascination with food. But only one dish could connect and represent all the 7, 107 islands of the Philippine archipelago. Adobo.
That’s why we thought it was imperative that we taught you how to cook adobo, which we did so with the help of two FHM babes wearing nothing but lingerie. That shoot not only produced really good adobo (so good it was quickly consumed along with two bandehados of rice) it also gave one of the women who cooked it a new identity. “After nun, kapag may nakakikita sa akin, especially sa car shows, ang tawag nila sa akin, 'Uy, si Ms. Adobo.' Ha ha ha!" says Ms. AJ Suller.
Obviously, AJ's not back for another tour of our kitchen—although she did tell us that she wanted to show us all how to cook some of her specialties, which of course we could arrange. But her return is as sumptuous and mouthwatering as her adobo. Gents, call AJ Ms. Adobo no more, from this day forward address her as FHM's 100% Hottie for February 2013!
Go on then, check out what AJ has prepared for you. Check out her personal timpla of smooth, like-it's-glowing skin and amazing curves. There's also her anti-umay smile. We just have one request though: Huwag ninyo masyado titigan at baka mapanis yan!
What does AJ stands for?
Real name ko is Anjenette Odessa Suller. Actually, ang talagang nickname ko nung bata ko is Jessa. Ewan ko kung ba’t napalitan ng AJ. Pero mas gusto ko na yung AJ. Hindi ko kasi masyadong feel yung Jessa. Ha ha!
How long have you been modeling?
Bago pa lang ako sa modeling, wala pang isang taon. I really started as a singer. I'm part of the girl group Posh Philippines. But then nag-Malaysia sila tapos di ako sumama kasi I’m still studying. Then I met this agent and he suggested that I try modeling.
What made you say yes?
Gusto ko kasi talaga maging part ng isang magazine and I'm thankful na sa FHM ako nag-start, No.1 magazine pa.
And not just any issue, we must add. You were in our special 15oth issue as one of the Pop! Girls. How was the experience?
Okay naman, masaya na makakilala ng ibang models, magkaroon ng ibang friends, mga photographers, the FHM staff, ha ha! Lahat okay.
Were you nervous during the shoot, being that was your first time?
Hindi naman ako kinabahan, medyo napaiyak lang. Naisip ko kasi yung mga kasama kong models super pro na, ako bago pa lang.
But we can tell that it all ended well. Tell us more about this girl group of yours.
We sing a wide array of songs: '70s, '90s, modern . Hindi siya super sexy girl group, tamang pa-sexy lang. Pero hindi rin naman lounge-y type .
We have this feeling that you're the group's biritera. Are we correct?
(laughs) Kinakanta ko yung mga Whitney Houston. Favorite ko yung "Saving All My Love For You." And when I sing that kumukuha ako ng tao from the audience, tapos nagse-sexy dance ako, ha ha ha!
Are you always this giggly?
Ako? Mahiyain ako na makulit.
