It's early in the morning and somewhere in Mandaluyong, one by one, Zara Lopez, Katya Santos, Andrea del Rosario, Maui Taylor, Gwen Garci and Sheree starts arriving at AO's venue for their comeback shoot.

Slowly, the place starts to feel like a sorority house in the middle of a party: the girls reminiscing about the days when they were starting out and praising how they all looked good as ever even after all the years, punctuated by filthy remarks unfit to print.

If you were a hot-blooded male bursting with the power of youth in the early 2000s, you know that the Viva Hot Babes were your fantasies fulfilled. Now, looking back on the days when you would stare at the pages of magazines that featured them, and seeing them more than a decade later, you have to admit, they still look as hot as they've always been. 

And we happy to share this experience with you. We know you've waited a long time for this, and we are happy to oblige your wishes. Gentlemen, here are the Viva Hot Babes—forever the pantasya ng bayan.
