together with some friends we attended this year's fhm party themed "fhm underground". it was graced by the some of the country's sexiest celebrities as voted by the public (though someone beside me quipped the ballots may have been "switched" hehehe)
the show was started by different bands, i can't exactly remember the names because who would really pay attention to them when you are surrounded with gorgeous models? people were quite busy having their photos taken with these models. after the bands, the models of the different sponsors of the event started strutting out where again, their chance to be featured in the magazine lie in the hands of the text voters.
then came the main event... after hearing the sultry and sexy voice of host and this year's 25th sexiest, asia agcaoili, the venue was drowned with thundering screams and cheers of the wild audience.
then as the 100 sexiest were revealed one by one and some actually made it to the show, the crowd even got wilder, especially when they started walking down the ramp and posed sexily to the delight of the masculine-dominated crowd. asia agcaoili was a constant attention getter with her ultimately revealing "outfit", if you can still call it that. present at the event were fhm toppers katrina halili, jenny miller, alessandra da rossi, hazel ann mendoza, kitty girls, gwen garci, iwa moto to name a few.
the night was capped with the revealing of this year's no. 1 in an underground themed storyline. of course it's no other than GMA's prime princess marian rivera, toppling last year's katrina halili. saying marian's beautiful would be an understatement especially if you can see her up close. though her lower back's not that... uhm, fair-skinned?... but still her over all beauty, charm and sexiness outshines through.
pigged out on seafoods at the seaside dampa after the event.
fhm 2008 100 sexiest women in the world was held at hall A of the world trade center metro manila financial center area in pasay city.

|dennis took the free ColorQuiz.com personality test!|
"His need to feel more causative and to have a wide..."
dennis's Existing Situation
Orderly, methodical, and self-contained. Needs the respect, recognition, and understanding of those close to him.
dennis's Stress Sources
Feels that life has far more to offer and that it is imperative that he should find the responsive and understanding relationship he is seeking; he therefore follows up any opportunity which presents itself. However, he maintains his attitude of critical appraisal and refuses to be swept off his feet unless genuineness and integrity can be absolutely vouched for. Therefore keeps a strict and watchful control on his emotional relationships as he must know exactly where he stands. Demands complete sincerity as a protection against his own tendency to be too trusting.
dennis's Restrained Characteristics
Circumstances force him to compromise and to forgo some pleasures for the time being. Capable of achieving physical satisfaction from sexual activity.
Conditions are such that he will not let himself become intimately involved without making mental reservations.
dennis's Desired Objective
His need to feel more causative and to have a wider sphere of influence makes him restless and he is driven by his desires and hopes. May try to spread his activities over too wide a field.
dennis's Actual Problem
The fear that he may be prevented from achieving the things he wants leads him into a relentless search for satisfaction in the pursuit of illusory or meaningless activities.
dennis's Actual Problem #2
Intensely critical of the existing conditions which he feels are disorganized or insufficiently clear-cut. Is therefore seeking some solution which will clarify the situation and introduce a more acceptable degree of order and method.
almost a hundred percent accurate! dunno about that "sex" thing. LOL!

1. be more active and keep busy. get involved in activities that are:
- enjoyable (sort of obvious, but when fordyce study participants thought about activities they enjoyed, as opposed to those they didn't enjoy, they learnt something new about themselves)
- exciting and physically active rather than sedate and tranquil. (but there's a place for both)
- new and unfamiliar
- social rather than solitary
- meaningful, not trivial
2. spend more time socialising.
formal clubs and organisations and informal relationships (family, friends, spouse) contribute strong feelings of satisfaction, support and a sense of belonging.
3. be more productive at meaningful work.
choose careers wisely, persevere towards commitments and goals and try to find meaning in work or voluntary activities.
4. get organised.
crack procrastination and take some lessons from the time management books to help work towards and refine goals.
5. stop worrying.
list your worries daily for a few weeks to observe your worry patterns: most don't come true and many are beyond your control anyway. learn to distinguish between worry and planning and see the planning ease the worry.
6. lower expectations and aspirations.
"how pleased we are with life is not merely determined by what happens to us," says fordyce. "it is also determined by what we expect to happen to us."
- don't tempt disappointment: cultivate a modest expectation of daily life.
- recognise that "success" may not be as key to your happiness as you've been led to believe.
- don't wait to be happy - it's a way to travel, not a place to arrive, the present, not the unknown future, matters most.
- select life goals that are within your ability to attain.
7. think positively and be optimistic.
it's not what you have, it's how you look at it. take a real situation (you didn't get the house you wanted to rent/ you missed the train) and see it in its most positive and and most negative light, and you'll get the picture. ultimately, says fordyce, it's about believing you can be happy no matter what.
8. be present-orientated.
there's more happiness in the "here and now" than the "there and then". savour the moment and keenly appreciate the pleasures of life.
9. work on a healthy personality. to get going in the right direction, try to:
- like yourself - analyse your views about yourself and how these affect your happiness.
- accept yourself, shortcomings and all.
- know yourself: you need insight and understanding to make good decisions about what to do.
- help yourself: cultivate self-sufficiency and being "inner" rather than "outer" directed.
10. develop an outgoing social personality.
you'll likely expand your social life with small changes such as smiling more, acknowledging others and initiating conversations.
11. be yourself.
get comfortable expressing yourself honestly and you are more likely to find others who like you "just the way you are".
12. eliminate negative feelings and problems.
seek help with problems such as addiction or depression. it's hard to work on happiness if your unhappiness is too encumbering.
13. close relationships are no. 1
healthy, loving relationships are critically important, whether with family, friends or a romantic partner.
14. value happiness.
fordyce says people who regard happiness as important are - quite simply - happier.
