It wasn't too long ago when Sunshine Garcia shared the January 2014 cover with her equally-hot Banana Nite sisters Aiko Climaco and Jef Gaitan. It was a crazy and crowded shoot. How we managed to fit in two dozen peeps in our humble studio, we've no idea.
This time though, we plucked her away from her BFFs for her very first FHM Online Babe shoot, and it turns out Sunshine thrives in a more intimate setting such as this one. "Mas kaunti yung tao sa set so hindi ako na-rattle," she tells us. "It's just the photographer and I. Nakapag-concentrate ako at na-execute yung gusto niyang i-shoot."
As you can see on the left side of your screen, we’re sharing to you all the goodies from the "very relaxed" photo shoot. FHM Nation, let's all welcome Sunshine Garcia, minus the inhibitions!
Are things easier for you the second time around?
Mas mahirap yung cover shoot kasi first time namin yun, pero parang mas mahirap yung mga pinagawa niyo sa akin ngayon ha. Yung mga request niyo, hindi ko ginawa yun sa cover shoot. Baka magalit yung team that did the cover shoot! Ha ha!
Too bad they're not here to see how impressive you were!
Binobola niyo ba ako? Ha ha! Kasi siguro, yung cover namin dati if I’ll compare it now, mas kaunti yung tao sa set so hindi ako na-rattle. It’s just the photographer and I. Nakapag-concentrate ako at na-execute yung gusto niyang i-shoot. Saka parang may tension kasi nung una, ngayon parang na-lessen.
Kasi nung unang ginawa ko yun [sexy] sa cover, yun talaga yung first time ko. Ngayon, parang alam ko na at medyo comfortable na ako, pero meron pa rin namang konting inhibitions.
Some women like the attention. Do you?
Mas naiilang ako. Mas gusto ko yung it’s just between me and the photographer, or may isang nakatutok lang. Ayoko ng marami, parang hindi ko magawa yung dapat kong gawin. Naiiisip ko naman palagi na, example itong photographer na ‘to madami na ‘tong nakatrabahong professional models talaga, na konting ganito lang, konting ganyan, parang, “Ahhh, ganda mag-pose nito.”
Did your dancing skills come in handy during the shoot?
Dancing really helps kasi kapag sumasayaw ka, kasama na doon yung facial expressions at body movements mo kung paano i-execute yung sayaw, which is almost the same if you’re doing pictorials. Hindi pwedeng isa lang yung mukha mo, dapat mailabas niya kung ano man yung theme nung shoot niyo.
By the way, that dance number you did with Rochelle and the girls at this year's #FHM100Sexiest Victory Party was super awesome. Congratulations!
Actually first time ko rumampa sa Victory Party, and I was really nervous. Lagi naman kaming sumasayaw at exposed sa tao, pero yung kaba ko talaga hindi ko maintindihan. Dahil siguro ibang level na yung expectation ng crowd sa amin. Lahat ng makikita mo na kasama dun sa show, willing silang gawin kung ano yung gusto niyo. And considering showdown pa yun, and si Rochelle [Pangilinan] pa! Ka-showdown ko si Rochelle!
