Now that all that is behind us, allow us to present our 12th anniversary issue:
If you still don’t know, that is GMA-7’s Bela Padilla, stepping into the, ehem, spotlight.
It is in hindsight that we say this: That we shot the cover story somewhere deep in Batangas, on a dark and terribly stormy night should’ve been a premonition of sorts. But as we pulled that photo shoot off—shooting overnight, amidst relentless rain, choppy water, and bitingly cold wind—here we are, pulling ourselves up from the chaos that came on the eve of our 12th birthday party.
Kudos to our cover babe Bela Padilla, who knocked us out twice! First, during the shoot where the actress showed just how professional she is, never complaining about all the things we were complaining about. And second during that whole ruckus on the last weekend of February; what grace under pressure.
With Bela are six other babes in bikinis, because, hey! It is FHM’s annual bikini issue. You’ll find “Sex: A Trouble-Shooting guide” most useful; Asia and other esteemed guest panelists returns to help you out with your sex life. We celebrate the movies, too, honoring the best and the worst in Philippine cinema. And of course, the “Groomed to Vroom” feature, where you will find helpful tips on how to detail and pamper your ride.
So what are you waiting for? FHM’s birthday bash is finally starting!
