For some unexplainable reason, Geo and I seemed to be nautically-inclined with our recent fashion editorial shoots. It started this year with MONDAY MAGAZINE's sizzling pictorial entitled  'Nautical Numbers' wherein we sailed away to amazing Subic Bay via Apa Ongpin's private yacht (I published a blog entry about it last month). The cruise experience was self-gratifying - living the grand life has never felt that good!

So here we go the second time, feeling luxurious and sushal all over again... The 'amazing cruise-aders' are back to the sea with this month's edition of PEOPLE ASIA MAGAZINE - also taking on the pleasure side of holiday cruise. This time around, we navigated the blue waters of Peninsula de Punta Fuego in Nasugbu, Batangas, and transformed (the already stunning) SAM PINTO as the charter queen of the world.

And oh, by the way, this shoot had so much statement that Sam P., Tatum Ancheta (art director), Dix Perez (photographer) and some others came aboard a helicopter coming to the location! Geo and I were soooo inggit... Lucky you, Mama Cherry Pacheco (our makeup artist), at least you were able to ride the chopper on the way back to Manila! :-)

To our friends and everybody else, please grab a copy of PEOPLE ASIA this April 2011 (with Gretchen Barretto on the cover - styled by Geo as well) and check out how the sea princesses turned another rendition of cruise control.
