Halfway through the week, the rains started to pour like crazy with light and sound effects at that. I’m going apeshit from the intense heat at midday and then the heavy downpour by late afternoon. Imagine the traffic in the city caused by flash floods [and kids going home from school, trying to flag rides in the middle of the street]. I’m complaining because I miss the summer – the careless, lazy days of the sunny season. The endless beach trips or dips in the pool. Dog days, picnic days. Heat wave and hot wave. And of course, the bikini contests. Here’s Harold Montano
, daring actor [Twilight Dancers
] and erstwhile bikini open vet, casual and loose by the pool.
Twenty-four year old freelance model Edward Paez
first came into the collective consciousness of a few gay guys sometime in 2004 when he joined the Ginoong Pilipinas pageant. The dark-skinned lad didn’t get to win the title and went back to school afterwards. Edward Paez took up a BS course in Electronics and Communications Engineering at the famed Mapua Institute of Technology. After school, he went on to appear in the fashion runways and in teevee and print advertisements. He was last memorably seen in the commercial that raised awareness on dyspepsia. Too, he is remembered for brainlessly recording on amateur video his sexual episode with a woman, with his privates exposed. I think UPH posted it somewhere in his site.
The shortest yet zippiest among the band of starker teasers called Provoq, 19-year old John Miller
promises a, uh, cocky and spunky performance in their upcoming show entitled Cruise
. John Miller, born to an Aussie father and a Filipino mother, grew up in La Union province, where he says he was used to manual labor. According to those who have met the guy in person, the color of his eyes changes in six different hues, consistent with his moods. That would be pretty interesting to watch then, aside of course from the skin show we are all looking forward to see in Cruise.

It’s another manic Monday, and off to the salt mines we go! Depending on how you love your job, Mondays usually bring a variety of feelings and moods to the working class. It’s either you dread the thought of Monday mornings, just because work does not fully excite you after a two-day respite. Otherwise, you are too pumped up to go through the daily grind again, eager to get down to the office for another week of hectic yet animating donkeywork. And here’s 24-year old Silver Morres to brighten up your Monday day. Silver Morres has been a freelance model for quite some time now, having appeared in runway shows for designers and commercial products.
Twenty-four year old Paul Anthony Celis was last seen at the Bodyheat Model Search held recently. He was one of the surprise finalists in the Mr. World-Philippines search and one of the 12 semi-finalists at the “Circle of 10 Face and Body Quest.” Aside from modeling he is a beach and indoor volleyball varsity player of the St. Francis of Assisi College in Las Pinas, where he is taking up a Hotel and Restaurant Management course.
The Men of Provoq are back, after a long vacuity and a bum’s rush of some members [Michael Raymond Lim
and Dennis McIrvin; is Gabz del Rosario out too?]. The second edition of the Men of Provoq will be coming out with a one-night-only tease show and a coffee table book, which promises to be sexier and hotter than the first one. Here’s more info about the show from one of the top men [thank you Lex] handling the project:

I’m particularly curious who’s the new guy in the poster, the one with the hair dryer. I’m guessing it could be model John Elmer “JE” dela Cruz [photos below], second-runner up at the Kouros 2006 Male Model Search. But then again I could be mistaken. And no, I don’t think the one in pink is part of the group.
I only realized until now that this would have to be the 400th post. It has been a while since I started putting up this photo blog with the sole intention of sharing [and unloading] photo files that I have and of course, something to do at nights when I’m alone and borny [it works big time, it took my mind off such carnal matters]. Along the way, I got to meet UPH, who has since been constantly bugging me to go to the male pageants and bring my superannuated camera. Besides, he has been a good friend and listening board lately, so I haven’t been complaining – despite being a little devil himself. And then there’s demure and vince [from my PP days], who have been supportive and generous in their comments. There’s mysterious Lito [all the way from the Middle East, I think] who has been sending me all this time photos and news about male stuff. And mean and amusing J. , who’s always kvetching at my posts on Jon Mullally and Andrew Wolff [I’m now wondering why]. There’s cheriepie, a confirmed woman reader of this blog, always with encouraging comments. Plus the emails I get from wonderful people. Thank you guys, I would love to meet you someday. I am not closing this blog yet. I’m just extending my thank-you’s on this 400th post. And now here’s Michael Yan, a 24-year old model-hunk, who’s appeared in various contests and runway shows in the metro.
Michael Mico “Mai” Patdo, is a 22-year old freelance model and nurse by profession. This cuddlesome young hunk from Tarlac City graduated from the Perpetual Help College of Manila, but he was previously proclaimed as Mr. University of Baguio in 2003. He has done the runways for Street Jeans, Page, Diadora, MyX, and Purple Box, according to his bio.
He was the model who sported the feminine look before: long straight hair and gracious strides. Yet, Bembol Cabasal, now 28 years old and still winning bikini contests one after the other, has stayed in the business with his new more-manful look. He first appeared in 2004 when he joined the first Bikini Open: The Pageant, where he was one of the finalists. Eventually, he was the grand winner at the 2004 Mr. and Ms. Sexy Body Bikini Open sponsored by Sta. Lucia Mall. This year, despite the presence of younger and buffer contestants, he managed to land first runner-up at the Bikini Frenzy pageant [held at Golden Sunset Resort owned by famous hairdresser Ricky Reyes] and as finalist at the Beach Bodies Bikini Championship in Subic Bay.
John Harren Cuevas, the former member of the male group Viva Hotmen, seems to be getting visible these days. He joined Viva Hotmen when it was just about to split for good, so nothing much came out of his showbiz career at that time. Prior to his stint in the sexy male group, John Harren was the Mister Caloocan City 2002 and the Mr. Face and Body Bikini Open 2003 in faraway Cagayan Valley. In 2004, he became a member of the Metro Hunks, a song-and-dance group of men performing in comedy and sing-along clubs in the metro. The following year, he was the grand champion in Bodyheat Model Search, which title paved the way for his inclusion in Viva Hotmen. He did a couple of straight-to-video films such as Pinoy Kamasutra and Erotic Lapdance, produced by Viva Entertainment.
