We can all say it now: Thank God, it's Friday!
It was one hell of a week, with President Noynoy Aquino's State of the Nation Address (SONA) kicking things off. From the (mandatory) pre-SONA fashion show, to the parade of nightmarish effigies, the start of the week was filled with buzz about P-Noy's last-ever annual report. And yesterday, the Metro had its first-ever #MMShakeDrill.
Making the past five days more interesting was another Kardashian attempting to break the Internet, a heavy dose of Western summer, Alice Dixson interviewing (and daring) Maria Ozawa, capped off by the introduction of our super fit and super fine cover girl for August, Arianny Celeste.
And with all that now done and over with, it's time for some well-deserved rest, relaxation, and perhaps, some recreation. Help yourself to this week's edition of the FHM Gimik Guide!
