The hotness of Filipino-Scandinavian hunky male model Matthias Rhoads in "50 Shades Manila"

The guy in the middle is Matthias Rhoads. He's Filipino-Scandinavian (that's like so hot) and he's so hot (yeah, that's the second time I've said that) and mega handsome and he's a model here in Manila, a video blogger (vlogger), as well as an up and coming actor.

And he's so hot. Ok. Third time. LOLZ! Teehee!

He had been living independently in New York City for quite some time before going here to the Philippines. I'm just not sure how long he's gonna be here but I pray to God Almighty that he'll be here for a very long time. Long enough for me to get to know him better and blog more about him in the coming weeks. CHOZ! Showbiz.

This guy is actually amazing. Before going here, he was an insurance broker for one of the top insurance firms in Manhattan and he also finished an Art degree at the renowned Savannah College of Art and Design. He also had training in theatrical acting back in high school that's why it's no surprise that he landed this amazing opportunity in "50 Shades Manila" where he played Christian Grey's hot younger brother, Elliot.

I saw the play December last year (thus the photo above) and it was just funnily sexy. Unfortunately, I wasn't seated close to where the "Elliot" scene was so I wasn't able to see what I would've wanted to see (LOLZ!) but having had the chance to sit close next to Matthias (his friends call him Thias or Tai Tai) during the meet and greet was more than enough.

He surprisingly has a good singing voice, too. And when he speaks...gosh...when he speaks....

His voice actually sounds a little big and full and it's just really oozing with so much sexiness that probably if ever we're gonna have a conversation or a quick interview, just the two of us, I would just most likely faint or be transported into another dimension.

He's just really so dreamy. Ahihihi!

Below are some promotional photos of the play with Matthias in it.

Again...he's just so mega handsome.
And he's effortlessly hot. Ultra hot. (How many times have I said that now?)
And I'm feeling so envious of this female model beside him right now. So envy her. LOLZ!
The other guy is Ryan Sy, one of the male contestants in last year's Century Tuna Superbods.
Matthias' body is just so perfect.
This is supposed to be a funny photo but I'm sweating right now. LOLZ! Teehee!
I've been naughty. Spank me, Matthias. Spank me. Please! CHOZ!
He's just so hot. Ok. That's how many times already? 4th? 5th? 6th? 7th? LOLZ!

And now, lemme just share with you some of the photos that I took during the meet and greet session. The first 2 photos were taken by one of the production staff.

These photos will definitely prove that Matthias is, indeed, made of pure hotness and that his photos don't need any Photoshop.

But, actually, the first time I saw him face to face, up front and personal, I almost wanted to do an Emma Stone scene and say, "Seriously, it's like you're photoshopped! May I touch those abs? Just wanna check."

LOLZ! Ok. The last 2 sentences weren't in that Emma Stone movie "Crazy Stupid Love." I know. Naughty me. SPANK ME NOW, ELLIOT! CHOZ!

Straight from work. Just added a pink scarf. And I was all set. Teehee!
Jon Snow...errr....George Schulze was also behind me. Hi George!
See what I was talkin' about?
Those six-pack abs aren't fake!
His chest is perfect. His abs are perfect. His arms are perfect.
His jaw line is perfect. His nose is perfect.
His hair is perfect. His shoulders are perfect.
Even the way his hand holds that water looks so perfect!
His girlfriend is most definitely lucky to have him. Though, I can't confirm if he already has one.
But, honestly, how can someone this hot, handsome and perfect be single? That would be so....
La...la...land...i! I'm so malandi. LOLZ!
I heard that there's supposed to be another run of "50 Shades Manila" this year but I just still dunno when it's gonna be.
Why are you so perfect, Matthias Rhoads?! You're making me cry right now with your male beauty and perfection. It so hurts.
He has the most beautiful eyes ever and his smile is very infectious.
I wonder what he'll be doing for Valentine's Day? I hope he'll be vlogging about it. And I'll be watching. Most definitely. Teehee!
I just so wanna give Matthias a big hug right now. Not just because he's so hot (nth time already probably) and mega handsome but also because he's one helluva nice guy. He's nice to me. A guy who's nice to me is a nice guy. Believe me.
This is so unfair already. Even with his eyes closed, Matthias is still incredibly hot (not counting anymore) and mega mega mega handsome.
Now he's holding the water bottle in his other hand. And it still embodies so much perfection!
I think I'm in love with Matthias Rhoads already. Teehee! CHOZ! I mean...c'mon....who wouldn't?

I just really feel so excited for Matthias and his showbiz career here in the Philippines. I hope the entertainment industry will also take notice of him and see the things that I'm seeing in him. He's good looking on the outside but he's also full of heart and warmth on the inside. He's very talented and smart and despite being half-Scandinavian, I'm telling you, this guy is so Filipino and he's loving his Filipino roots so much based on what I've seen in his social media posts and vlogs.

All the best, Matthias! And I hope to bump into you again soon. Probably for a much formal sit down interview. CHOZ! #nextlevel

Lizzy Latte brewing soon at SM by the Bay!

That's right! And it's gonna be anytime soon! If I'm not mistaken, it should be this coming March already so that's like just more than a month away!

A bigger...bolder...and hotter Lizzy Latte will be opening its doors to its patrons in no time and I'm just so more than excited!

A few months ago, they had a pop-up store at the Ayala Museum in Greenbelt for an event and they were there for like almost a week. And, of course, I didn't let that opportunity to go by without me having my most favorite Vanilla Velvet. See this? Teehee! Heaven!

I also surely did miss their pastries especially their chunky white chocolate Oreo cookies. They're simply the best. 
Something new that I found was their cute leche flan. Ahihihi! I hope they're also gonna be offering these at their SM by the Bay store when they open because they're also really so good. Not so sweet. Just the right blend. Can hardly wait!!!

And I also can't wait to see that "Danish guy" again. In case he'll be in town when Lizzy Latte opens, that is. Teehee! Charaught!

Click here for more of my Lizzy Latte moments.

Bullies and my pink Puma rubber shoes

Bullies come in all forms and sizes. And ages.

I bought this pair of Puma rubber shoes at a DFO superstore in Melbourne, Australia for only AUD 30 last year. Yes. It was on sale. 70% off.

While I was at Legaspi Active Park a few days ago, 2 kids (boys) who were playing there approached me and took notice of my rubber shoes. "Why is his shoes pink?", one of them said and they both started giggling. I knew where that was gonna lead to so I just chose to ignore them and focused on finishing my routine instead. I'm used to this (people making fun of me because I'm different, etc.), I told myself. But then this one guy stepped forward and spoke to those kids. "Can you just go away?", he told them.

When I finished, I stood up and told the guy the that it's fine and that I was used to it already. But deep inside I felt happy that there's still a guy in this world who stood up for me and made me feel safe to be with his company. Not that I needed anyone to stand up or fight for me, of course. I know I have a strong personality and I also know how to protect myself. But as time went by, I somehow learned to ignore stuff like this and just moved on with my life. Like I always say, I just LIVE.

But to that guy, you know who you are, I just wanna say...thank you. I'm happy to have you as my friend.

The many pretty faces of Miss Costa Rica (Miss Universe 2016)

Last Thursday was the preliminaries for the 2016 Miss Universe and my friend was lucky enough to be there and watch it live.

He told me that Miss Costa Rica Carolina Rodriguez Duran did really well during that event. And also even on the day before when she had an interview with former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres (We love her!), he said that Carolina was fantastic and that Dayanara enjoyed talking to her as well. That's a good sign, isn't it? Teehee!

Anyhow, without further adieu, lemme just share with you some photos that I got showing the many pretty faces of the confidently beautiful with a heart Miss Costa Rica Carolina Rodriguez Duran.

She looks stunning in this gown.
OLA! Teehee!
Her hair is like my ultimate "hair goals" as of the moment.
Perfect stance.
Love how "flowy" that gown kinda looks.
And now, for the swimsuit portion....
My ultimate "balik alindog goals" for 2017.
And she has abs! Hihi!
She's like the perfect ambassador for promoting good health and nutrition and for being physically fit.
I'm pretty sure Carolina is already a celebrity in Costa Rica but should she decide to stay here in the Philippines for a little bit, I'm positive that she'll also make a mark here.
Oh! And look...Miss Costa Rica is among the top 12 picks of this Facebook page. Awesome!

New “POWER RANGERS” movie opens March 22 in Phil. cinemas


From the team of filmmakers who introduced cool young adult blockbuster franchises such as “The Twilight Saga,” “The Fault in Our Stars” and “The Maze Runner,” producers Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen along with Haim Saban and Brian Casentini bring the latest young adult movie franchise to watch out for – the new “Power Rangers” movie.

The latest “Power Rangers” movie follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove — and the world — is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.

Directed by Dean Israelite (“Project Almanac”), Saban’s Power Rangers stars Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, featuring Bill Hader, with Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks. The screenplay is by John Gatins (“Kong: Skull Island,” “Real Steel”) from a story by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (“Dracula Untold”) and Michele Mulroney and Kieran Mulroney.

A truly unforgettable 1990s phenomenon, “Power Rangers” became the most-watched children’s television program in the U.S. More than that, it became a cultural hit around the globe. Now a new feature film based on the show, Saban’s “Power Rangers,” re-envisions the Power Rangers as five ordinary high-school teens who discover they have acquired unique super powers and must join forces to save the world.

The film’s director, Dean Israelite, grew up watching “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” in South Africa. “It became a phenomenon there, just as it did all around the world,” he says. “What I remember most is how empowered the show made you feel. When it emerged that this project was going to re-imagine the show, I was very excited. I knew if I could tap into the feeling of the original it would be an incredible adventure.”

Remaining true to the spirit of the television series has been fundamental to every decision made by the production team, says Israelite. “We are here because of the fans who have sustained the series for over 23 years. It’s imperative that they come out of this movie feeling like we have taken what they love — and we love — about the series and brought it to life in a contemporary way while respecting the mythology.”

“Power Rangers” opens March 22 in cinemas nationwide from Pioneer Films.

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
