There’s something about Elmer

by: rddantes April 21, 2007 | 1 Comment |

Frankly, he does look ordinary to me but there’s something about Dante Balboa, or Elmer Anisco, that makes him tick in the sex-o-meter. Dante Balboa was a former runway and print-ad model and member of the Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP). During his heyday, he was the Mr. Young Philippines and 2nd runner-up at the Manhunt Philippines search. For some unfathomable reason, he was named by showbiz writers as ‘educated hunk” and “brainy boldie.” It must be because of the fact that he majored in Architecture at the University of the Philippines aside from also attending special courses in Computer and Landscape Architecture, B.A. Film and Audio-Visual Communication and B.A. Philosophy at the State U. He was also an instructor on philosophy, language, and literature at Far Eastern University (FEU). Quite a feat for an actor who strip-bared in Seiko Films’ skin flicks of yore.

Kish McBride, a 20-year old Philippine Maritime Institute-student, won this year’s edition of Hataw Super Bodies 2007, besting 22 other bikini-clad hotties. Kish, who started out joining small-time village pageants [he won Macho Guapito Body Beautiful in his barangay and the Tropical Hunks Bikini 2006 1st runner-up trophy], topped pageant veterans and models in the annual free-for-all thongs tilt, held at the Metro Bar in Quezon City. More photos to follow.

Hoo-Yeah! Michael!

To complement the post of UPH [see Michael-Hoo-Majestic-Chinito ] here are far more far-out photos of Michael Hoo from the promo bookazine Troika. It seems that this cute Chinese mestizo, who is only 23 years old [and yes UPH, he does look old for his age but he is cute anyways], is in a hurry for his 15 minutes of fame. The 6′-tall Tarlac province native has been joining teen bikini competitions of late. In any case, he does seem to hold some promise in the looks and brawn department, and the future looks sunshine-y for this guy.

Stripped: Alfred of the Valentino Boys

by: rddantes April 19, 2007 | 1 Comment |

Alfred dela Cruz is 23 years old and one of the Valentino Boys, the buff pack of Valentino magazine. Rather short at 5’7″, this Bulacan province native has modeled for and appeared in bikini competitions. Unfortunately, he hasn’t won any. At present he is the resident naked-as-a-jaybird photo subject of a senescent designer based in Quezon City. And the photos are, admittedly, molto buon e bello!

The return of Chika Chika!

by: rddantes | 1 Comment |

The secret magazine of every adolescent gay boy in the late 80s and early 90s – Chika Chika, is back, and better than ever. It must be recalled that Chika Chika Magazine, which was the queen fag mag of its era, contained centerfold images of Filipino hunks from Anton to Zoltan, aside from a smattering of showbiz gossip and promotional feeds. Chika Chika was the original gay rag before the likes of glossier Valentino, Coverboy, G [Gigolo] and the salacious Ultimate Expose and Male Bodyshots magazines came into being. Ultimately, Chika Chika, a publication of Graphic Arts and Services, Inc. or GASI, died a natural death.
Now Don Juan Publishing [also the publishers of the new Valentino and Coverboy magazines] has come up with the resurrected Chika Chika magazine. Judging from the cover featuring Ken Nash [aka Derick Rivera of Kuoros 2006] and Alias Gabriel [the younger, cuter one], it has great sparkling promise. Although the showbiz format was stripped, the magazine still features newcomers in the bare-all scene amidst risqué tales. One thing I noticed was the propensity of the photogs to capture the young male models from behind while they were bent over. Hot! Go buy the magazine guys as it has tons and tons of photos and stories.

When I was small, and too young to understand…

by: rddantes April 18, 2007 | 3 Comments |
…I had the biggest crush on Enrico Quizon. Eric first came to the spotlight as the Comedy King’s model son in the first models-only Bodyshots contest [sponsored by the Fashion Designers Association of the Philippines ] in 1986. Although Eric did not win the prize [which went to Leo Rabago in the professional division, and Bernard Navarro in the amateur division ], he went on to get offers in modeling stints and movie projects. He had a nice bod at that time, and his speedo pics can attest to that. So, when I was small and too young to understand, I had the ultimate fool’s paradise in the person of this guy. I met Eric when I was already of age, and legally cognizant of matters, affairs, intercourse and annals of life. He is now the director of GMA-7’s adventure series, Asian Treasures.
