Reliving Bench Universe

Fun fact: I don't watch television.

However, I am a bit of a social media addict, so it came to my attention that Bench Universe was showing on TV last night. In fact, it got hyped so much that #benchuniverse trended worldwide. Oh, the limitless powers of Bench!

As such, I thought it would be the perfect time to finally show you my photos from that prestigious event. :) Better late than never! Here they are:

The minute we walked into the Mall of Asia Arena, we were greeted by this epic stage of wonders!

Gotta love John's special photographer's pass.

We sat around and munched on popcorn while waiting for the show to start and soon enough, the countdown began...

2 minutes and 26 seconds to go...

Excited peeps in the dark audience!

The excitement mounts!

By this time, all I could think of was Enchong Dee! :p

First up: Mig Ayesa!

Love this guy! Such a rockstar!

It doesn't hurt that he reminds me so much of David Bowie. Whom I worship and will worship forever.

Kim Chiu

She reminded me of Snow White when she came out. :)

Steven Silva

Jin Kazama peg? :p

Sophie Sumner

As always, Bench was able to bring in a gorgeous America's Next Top Model to walk the runway and this time it was the pink-haired beauty Sophie Sumner who was absolutely STUNNING and FLAWLESS. Why can't I look like that? :p

For Philippine Fashion Week F/H 2012, Allison Harvard and Dominique Reighard also graced the runways for Michael Cinco for Bench, and very recently, Raina Hein graced the runways for the Furnè One x Bench fragrance launch. Bench never disappoints!

Jake Cuenca

I really don't think I need to say much here. I'll just let the photos above do the talking... :p

Jasmine Maierhofer

My favorite model of all time!!!

Enchong Dee

The minute I saw the epic boat coming down, I knew this was what I was waiting for!!! :p #dramalines

Oh yesss... Hahaha. I'm afraid I got so excited, though, most of my shots of him are blurry. :( Thank God for John and his photos! :p

Diether Ocampo

Another epic and unforgettable entrance was given by Diether Ocampo.

Sorry for the Diether overload. He's got great arms.

Sadly, I overdid it with the Diether pictures coz right after I took that last one, my camera died. I forgot to charge!!! :(( Huhuhu. But, hey, it was all for the best, coz Gerd stole my lens to have his fun with his addiction after that anyway. I swear: he has no taste in women... which is prolly why he's dating me. :p

Ahhh. To put it mildly, Bench Universe really was amazing!!! And I will never get sick of looking at pictures of it and reliving it over and over again. Thank you so much for having us! I can't wait for the next one! :)
