No, I haven’t been maniacally working out at a gym to improve my flabby physique. That’s Derek Ramsay on the cover of the current issue of Statement Magazine, silly. Marketman is “on” the cover under “Movers & Shakers”, near Mr. Ramsay’s rear end. Look closely…hahaha! And THAT is probably the closest I am going to get to the front cover of a glossy magazine. :) I am flattered to be included in the magazine’s list of “Movers & Shakers” and while I am not sure I am either the former or the latter, I can say I am the only one without my mug shot in the full page write-up within. Many thanks to blog reader Kris Andres for writing the article, it is very nicely done. :)

    Looks like the Marketman is no longer anonymous. From Bourdain’s show to newspapers and magazines. What next? Own mag and TV show?

    Galing! Who knows, maybe soon you’ll get invites to TV talk shows and finally “reveal” the face behind Market Manila :)

  15. Marketman says:

    Mom-Friday, I have actually declined several TV shows precisely because they wouldn’t let me appear back-lit like a terrorist or informant… heehee. :)

    MM, you missed the part where you have to use a voice changer so that you won’t be recognized through your voice….like in a witness protection program…hehehe…
