Rocky!


Whenever I see 6’2″-tall model Rocky Salumbides i feel like humming The Crimea’s “Lottery Winners on Acid.” That is, I go weirdly insane like a lottery winner on acid. Although I am quite partial to the cutesy Chinaman pale boys [e.g. Carlos Concepcion], the Philippines’ male supermodel is one of my dark-skinned favorites. Of course, everybody knows his humble beginnings [street food vendor, Trinity College varsity basketball player, struggling model] to supermodel status. This 25-year old model is also known for his professionalism, competency and modesty, that is why he is one of the most in-demand male mannequins in the fashion runways of Manila, Singapore and Hong Kong.
