UNO Magazine puts Dawn Jimenez on the Cover


UNO Issue 92 Dawn Jimenez (1) 
Last Night, February 26, 2014, Dawn Jimenez together with Bangs Garcia graced the Autograph Signing of the UNO Magazine issue for the month. The ladies are too fresh to give their fans warm welcome and so thankful for their warmth response on their Magazines issue.
Here at UNO, we know men. We really do. And we know that if you have someone as hot and delectable as Dawn Jimenez waiting for you at home or in the office, you'd be hard-pressed to leave either place, right?
Or, because you know where to find her, you'd try to catch her again in her break-out role during THE climactic scene in On The Job, a movie about prisoners exiting prison to become hired hit men for corrupt government officials. Dawn surprised everyone as she took everything off for her wild love scene with Gerald Anderson, whose character didn't get any action for several months. Everything. She didn't even leave the cover on.

IMG_0708
Her willingness to be daring however paid off, as Dawn scored her first cover for UNO and an upcoming role in the ABS-CBN afternoon teleserye Moon of Desire.
For UNO's 92 issue, she gets down, dirty and simply delicious for her cover shoot. Donning the teensiest red and black lace lingerie, Dawn nibbles ever so gently or sometimes fiercely on a luscious piece of chocolate in the photos.
She reveals her thoughts on nabbing the role in OTJ and her excitement at being in a new afternoon teleserye with JC De Vera, Meg Imperial and Ellen Adarna.
She wasn't afraid to get all wet and lathered in chocolate for this UNO cover either. Dawn, with a sweet smile that could melt the hardest heart or chocolate, is actually a lover of zombie movies, even the low-budget ones, a fact that will surely get many a guy's attention.
Well, if the first few pages of Dawn's body in chocolate, with chocolate, on chocolate still didn't get your heart pumping (you must be cold-blooded then), perhaps the last spread will get a rise out of you.
images
Dawn. Chocolate spread ever so messily all over her body. And finger-licking. That should be enough right?
Well, this 92nd UNO issue also has some other articles that will get you excited and blood flowing to other parts of your body.
Like the Places to Dayo For, a food feature that takes you to different kinds of hole-in-the-wall restos from North, South to Central Metro Manila. If you are still hungry after this feature, you can go back for some more Dawn.
Or you can impress your girl with your vast knowledge of wines, especially if all you've been drinking all your life is beer. Your wine expertise is sure to get your girl excited and more...fluid.
And we didn't forget to include a feature in this issue for that other part of you that also does some thinking...your brain. Atom Araullo, the big shot broadcast journalist gets intimate and shares about his rise to fame and how this alpha male manages it all: work, fame, and love.
So go ahead, feel free to grab UNO's 92 issue. Everyone deserves a bite of chocolate-y happiness.
UNO magazine is available in all leading bookstores and magazine stands nationwide.
