Rocco's Strip Show

After being part of the Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Centerfold in 2010, Rocco Nacino has become a favorite in the magazine’s annual Cosmo Bachelor Bash.

From his much-applauded ‘Booty Work’ performance last year, he once again did another highlight this year, opening one of the segments in the Cosmo Bachelor Bash 2012 held last September 18, at the World Trade Center Manila.

He appeared on stage wearing a black long sleeves and a white pair of pants, carrying an attaché case, and did a Magic Mike-inspired production number. He once again proved that he is one heck of a dancer! His strip show was absolutely jaw-dropping as exclaimed by the excited crowd.


A Colorful Rocco in Bench Universe

After doing the walk for Bench during this year’s Philippine Fashion Week, Rocco Nacino was again part of the retail giant’s show – this time, the bigger and more anticipated bi-annual Bench fashion event: Bench Universe: The 2012 Denim and Underwear Show, held at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Though there were requests for Rocco to show more skin on the show, Rocco came out sporting a colorful Rajo Laurel-designed pair of pants, matched with equally colorful body paint.

It was Rocco’s 2nd time to join the Bench bi-annual fashion show, and we’re glad he was given more exposure this time. He definitely was a head-turner that night as he looked very handsome and fun on stage, enjoying and giving justice to his colorful costume.

With his lively and dynamic personality, Rocco have certainly drawn the crowd’s attention and has proved to be one of the most-loved stars who did the walk that night! Thanks to Mr. Ben Chan for having Rocco in the growing Bench family!


Bench Universe: The 2012 Denim & Underwear Show

Bench is undeniably the leading clothing brand in the country – with a branch in every mall nationwide, a roster of the most famous celebrity endorsers, and even creating the most talked-about billboards in the metro! With all these, the Philippines’ top retail brand definitely has all the reasons to celebrate majestically its Silver Anniversary.

Celebrating its 25th year at the top, Bench ran their much-anticipated bi-annual fashion show in two nights, September 13 & 14 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. Bench Universe: The 2012 Denim & Underwear Show, witnessed by thousands of Filipinos, was indeed the hottest and grandest fashion event of the year!

One of the most applauded appearance last night was Aljur Abrenica, with his perfect physique and naughty surprise.

I was lucky enough to be given free VIP passes and witness the show on its 2nd night, along with some friends. We had great seats and we were able to witness every highlight of the show. We also saw a few famous faces in the showbiz industry seated near us such as box-office director, Mac Alejandre, PPL Entertainment head and star-maker, Perry Lansigan, TV and events Host Raymond Gutierrez, model Callum David, professional Poker player Neil Arce, and the lovely couple, Christopher De Leon and Sandy Andolong.

Now without further ado, let me show you how Bench once again nailed it!


Bwakaw is a Film Worth Paying For

The Cinemalaya 2012 Box Office Hit, Bwakaw, after gaining lots of praises and good words from the Cinemalaya Film Festival audience, and after all the requests to have it shown longer, will finally be released in Philippine theaters on September 5.

At last, more Filipinos would be able to watch the film and find out for themselves why this Cinemalaya film raked awards during the festival, including Audience Choice, NETPAC Best Film, and Best Actor Award for the 83-year old industry icon, Eddie Garcia. This Jun Lana-directed drama-comedy has also made its international premiere at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival under the Contemporary World Cinema section, and was also the country’s official selection for the 2012 New York International Film Festival. The film, btw, is produced by APT Entertainment and October Train Films, and was distributed by Star Cinema.
