Get ready to rest your weary bones: It's the weekend, baby!
But before you do, let's take a look back at the week that was, shall we?
During the week, it was announced that a host of NBA stars will be setting foot on Philippine soil, starting off with the returning LeBron James (August 20), passing wizard Ricky Rubio (August 21 to 23), and finally, the reigning Most Valuable Player, Stephen Curry (September 5). Local hoop addicts are on a high right now...
We also put the spotlight on the heavy-gat, particularly on their fashion problems (for bros), the perks of dating plump women, and a study showing the ladies favoring butterballs in bed. Go check 'em out, fellow dad bods!
On the sexy side of things: Kylie Jenner just turned legal, Megan Young danced as Marimar, Mocha Girl Franz Fainsan showed us she got game, and Ella Cruz twerked (and twerked again), all to our delight!
Now, let's all look forward to the weekend with a little help from the new edition of the FHM Gimik Guide!
