The Final piece of the Puzzle (FHM #1)

Last December 9 2009, I was able to get a hold of one of the rarest magazines in the Philippines. That would be the very first issue of FHM Philippines or better known as FHM#1. It took me almost 10 years before I could hold one and call it mine.

To begin with, I started collecting FHM during my college days particularly during my final semester. I was contemplating back then which magazine should I collect. Then I stumbled upon this issue (FHM #4) at SM Manila and I really liked the content. for only 100php, it was really worth it, nevermind getting hungry at times. After getting FHM #4, I started to look for past issues. However, I only got issues 2 and 3 since all bookstores I've been through, they mentioned that it (FHM #1) already sold-out.

As years go by, I still continue to collect FHM and on December 9, I got an SMS from a friend's contact. He was selling his spare FHM #1 for 2000php. He even mentioned that the magazine was in very near mint condition. Without hesitation, I decided to meet-up with the seller and checked the Magazine thoroughly before considering it mine. All mine! XD

I went home so delighted that after almost 10 years, my FHM collection is now complete. Here are some pictures that I've took from my delirious camera.

 


  


  

My next target is to win the entire FHM Collection =P
