"It’s hard to live here in Manila,” declares this month’s girlfriend, Wella. See, this hottie is used to the free-wheeling life in her hometown of Cagayan de Oro. She describes it thus: fresh grass growing under your feet, the cleanest air you’ll ever inhale, the freshest food…
Sensing she had just opened up a baul full of fond memories, we thought it best to anchor to her present life in the city.
