[Throwback Thursday 06.13.2013] An old men's magazine named Manual
Once upon a time in the early 2000s, there was a local men's magazine called Manual. It was one of those mags I regularly bought along with FHM, Uno, and later on, Metro Him, Men's Health Philippines, and Garage.
Manual was a decent men's mag. Although it also did feature sexy women, it was never as raunchy as FHM. I don't think it had a lot of readers, though, and their attempt at a revamp by putting RJ Ledesma as editor-in-chief didn't help at all. I was actually put off by RJ's appointment that I stopped buying the mag then. Eventually, Manual closed down.
