Tropical Bodies

by: rddantes | 4 Comments |
Hmm, so these are tropical bodies? I recently got on my mail this picture from pilipig@yahoo.com and I thought it will be worth reposting. These are the winners of the Tropical Bodies 2007 held at Lips Bar, the one near the MRT J. Ruiz station, along Aurora Boulevard in Quezon City. I do not have any idea as to where these boys came from except the one in the middle who has been figuring lately in that bikini-or-none-at-all show of late. His name is Xavier Manahan, who seems cute. First runner-up’s name is Emmanuel Villa and 2nd runner-up is Ivan Maxwell. And before I forget, summer fashion will be gossamer and gauzy underwear, to flaunt one’s ready assets.
