Krista Ranillo ushers in the summer with a scorching cover shoot for MAXIM’s March 2009 issue. The star of the hit ABS-CBN soap “Pieta” is featured in her hottest pictorial yet, the better to mark her concurrent debut as the magazine’s new sex columnist.
An Interdisciplary Studies graduate of the Ateneo (cum laude) and a showbiz royalty in her own right, Krista premieres “The Princess Diaries,” a regular column on sex, dating, and relationships, guaranteed to be a MAXIM must-read starting this month.
The March issue also contains a major feature on Boracay, centering on the land dispute between the government and the island’s investors and also showcasing the Boracay master plan of the Department of Tourism, the rise of the Boracay Shangri-La Resort and Spa and Manny Pacquiao’s Boracay West Cove, and a sneak peek at the so-called Next Boracay—San Vicente in Palawan.
MAXIM fires up the concoction with “Boracay When It Sizzles,” a compilation of true tales of passion and debauchery as narrated by 10 hot-blooded women.
Another major feature is MAXIM’s unique take on the Korean invasion, which includes a gallery of some important and interesting Koreans in our midst, a profile of Korean cutie and Magic 89.9 deejay Grace Lee, a tribute to basketball legend Shin Dong Pa, a rundown of the death toll incurred by the Hanjin shipyard in Subic, and a map tour of Makati’s Koreatown.
Also in the March issue are taekwondo master Monsour del Rosario, Fil-Am major league baseball player Geno Espineli, underwater photographer Scott “Gutsy” Tuason and former President Fidel Ramos giving the thumbs-up to our saucy photo blogger Mocha.
Summer is here. I’ve better check on some weight loss products, so I can be sexy as Krista.
