Another long weekend up ahead!
A week after LeBron James returned to the country, local hoops has been on a high. Despite the erratic weather, passing wiz Ricky Rubio was still able to drop by and #TakeOnManila. Not only Rubio, Fil-Am Laker guard Jordan Clarkson also set foot here this week. And while we're optimistic that he could help our beleaguered national team, Gilas Pilipinas, uncertainty suddenly clouded over our hopes.
Thank God we had this pretty traffic stopper, Arci Muñoz and Sarah Lahbati in a leg-baring number, a bikini-clad Kate Upton, and finally, Solenn Heussaff's glorious—yet super bitin—twerking to lighten up the mood.
But you know what matters even more for the next three days? Where to go and what to do this long weekend! Here is this week's edition of the FHM Gimik Guide!
