Thanks to August 21 being Ninoy Aquino Day, another long weekend is upon us!
This week, we kind of went gaga over the phenomenon that is #AlDub, who had its first monthsary just last weekend. We didn't regret getting on the Yaya Dub bandwagon who, no doubt, exudes distinct allure when she's in Maine Mendoza form.
Meanwhile, this week's sexay saw a couple of Alice Dixson FHM BroCon webisodes—with Ritz Azul and Aubrey Miles—and an epic twerk-off between first-timer Anne Curtis and hot momma Ina Raymundo (who's next?).
But, enough with the intro! Here is this week's edition of the FHM Gimik Guide for your long weekend lakwatsa needs!

WHAT'S UP: Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike's protege, WolfPack, is dropping by one of the metro's exclusive night life spots to spin their new single, "Higher Place" (feat. Ne-Yo). What a way to start the long weekend!
