Crushlist: Sebastian Castro

So, I read once that a Sebastian Castro came out. I didn’t care. It was in a tabloid column and that writer tends to sensationalize what he writes. Besides, there was no photo posted so I thought it was not worth searching.

Then yesterday, a friend of mine suggested this Sebastian Castro’s Bubble video in YouTube. She was definitely looking like somebody who has erotomanic delusion. Haha. xD.

Fine, I said. I went online, clicked on the link and poof, I watched.

It was like OMG!

To tell, the truth, my eyes stayed glued thoughout the video. I thought I was inlove. Haha.

Gwapo siya. Ano ba? Gwapong-gwapo!!!!!

And then, this truth, this arrgghhhh truth popped somewhere.

Gay pala siya.

Pero napag-isip-isip ko, so what???? Nuvey, keri na yan.  Shucks! Sa lalaking ito, wa ako care bakla man siya or what. Basta, ang gwapo niya and that’s enough. Sana lang, keri niya pa ang mga babae.Magpapalahi ako sa hombreng ito kahit once lang.  Ang landi ko! Hahaha.Promise,  xD

Well, whatever!




Crush List: Juancho Trivino

I occasionally watch Teen Gen on GMA-7 and ever since the network showed teasers for the said show and up to now that it is airing via the Sunday afternoon slot after Party Pilipinas, I really can’t get enough of this cutie.

I’m not the type of girl to jump into the bandwagon of die-hard fans of up-and-coming youth artists (think of Daniel Padilla and think of me as anti-Daniel Padilla) that rely on their somewhat “handsome” faces. Much more, I rarely do the crush thingy with teeners who just can’t get enough of their mother’s or father’s pampering (you know what I mean) and who can’t divorce themselves from the youth image they projected ever since. Case in point, the KathNiel tandem who stayed glued to the youth image, from Kathryn’s Mara Clara to their Princess and I pairing.

Anyway, back to Juancho. He got something that seems to make me gravitate towards having this crush or admiration, rather. I hate to say crush (giggles:) That’s all. After all, a person does not have to explain a feeling, right? xD



Smitten by the Peplum?

It seems peplum skirts is making a statement in Glaiza de Castro’s fashion “chenes”. Try watching the Temptation of Wife remake in GMA 7 and you will see that most of her outfit in the show are peplum skirts.

Just like this cobalt blue skirt …


And this body hugging light green mini dress… Hmmm…
