Piolo Pascual and Marian Rivera with Bloggers

Cathy once interviewed Piolo Pascual for a showbiz magazine and she swears that Piolo is just drop-dead gorgeous. Really? I am envious. guapo ba talaga? She said I had to see him in person to appreciate his beauty. Haha. When will that be unless I stalk him at his favorite gym!

I am the most un-showbiz person I know. I am not an avid fan of any celebrity but Cathy’s description of Piolo piqued my curiosity. I think the first time I saw Piolo Pascual was in Dekada 70 and I was more impressed with his acting skills than his looks. I finally had the opportunity to meet him and Marian Rivera as the latest endorser for Bluewater Day Spa.

Piolo is so charming, er gorgeous looking guy to put it mildly. A dating game was up and female members of the media participated. Someone conveniently persuaded me to join. “No way..and be caught on TV!” Maybe if this was a private party with no media coverage, I’d heartily agree.

Marian Rivera dating game was up next and I volunteered Travel Photographer Blogger, Ferdz Decena who was game enough to compete with 3 other men.

And guess who won?

Ferdz Decena, of course!

The prize is a private moment to interview Marian Rivera in a tent all by themselves! Ferdz never got to interview her because media ambushed Marian inside the tent. How unfair that Ferdz never really claimed his prize. Is this the case of traditional media overpowering new media publishers with utter disregard of the rules of the dating game? Wait for your turn. Or is it new media publishers not being assertive enough?

Oh well, at least we had loads of fun and a chance to have this photo op. Simple joys.

Speaking of Ferdz, I’d like to invite you to the first solo exhibit of Ferdz Decena called Living By Water Exhibit

    I love you Piolo!!! Si Ferdz na starstruck, hehe. He won the one-on-one intimate session with Marian Rivera eh kaso puro press people naman.

    The Blue Water Day Spa press launch was a blast! Great marketing strategy… bringing the top stars from GMA and ABS-CBN together to endorse the spa.

    yes, a gorgeous guy indeed! some years back, piolo’s charm didn’t have any effect on me. and then i saw him in a mall, and oh gosh, i lost all poise and found myself screaming. i still couldn’t believe i did that 😀 that’s how beautiful he is. i think i’ll be rushed to the hospital if and when i see brad pitt.

    @cookie- Is there a show “I love you Piolo!”?

    @lady cess- I contained my excitement pero I think I was obvious that’s why a media man suggested I volunteer myself. haha

  • http://www.ironwulf.net Ferdz

    It was a fun event seeing these two station icons come together. Na starstruck nga ata ako kasi I was almost speechless I was up there with Marian haha. Didn’t expect it. She looked more beautiful in person. Ganda ng mga mata. Nag sink in lang nung pauwi na ko. Should have invited her to my exhibit hehe

    Thank you for the memorable photos 😀

    @ferdz- I really think you were too star struck to insist your right to have that intimate interview. Oh well, I hope Marian Rivera gets to visit your exhibit.

    Paging Marian Rivera….visit Ferdz’ exhibit

    http://www.ironwulf.net/2008/04/30/living-by-water-exhibit/

    The Exhibit will be held on May 12-27, 2008 at Filipinas Heritage Library in Ayala Triangle, Makati City. More details inside.

    @sophie- I think we were too obvious that’s why someone suggested that I be one of the dating candidates. enjoy.

    LOL next time we should bring large video cameras (paging video bloggers) para sindak effect. that would be so awesome.

    I saw Piolo once kaso hindi ako makalapit ang daming security beside him knowing the fact na he’s inside ABS-CBN lang. He’s a good-looking guy talaga. Talented pa! 🙂

Yes, I love you, Piolo! I can’t to see your commercial even if I am in the States.

    They are both adorable and charming bagay na bagay sila.
    I like their pics together, sayang di ko napanood sa TV yung interview nila sa presscon ng new spa edorsement.

    I love piolo and I like Marian for him as a movie partner, sana more projects pa sila together even they are in rival networks.
