Sam Ajdani and Andrew Wolff during yesterday’s product launch
During yesterday’s product launch of My Daily Collagen Drink at Solaire Resort & Casino, the presence of both Andrew Wolff and Sam Ajdani (it would have been if John Spainhour was also around
) got me into thinking about the possible staging of the next edition of Mr. World Philippines – the future winner of which is expected to banner the country’s representation in UK for 2018.
We all know that Arnold Vegafria (along with General Manager Bessie Besana) is in the midst of finalizing preparations for the formal launch of Miss World Philippines 2017. And knowing that the same individual now holds the Philippine franchise of Mr. World, plans for holding the search for the successor of reigning titleholder Sam Ajdani will follow suit – maybe not soon after, but either very late this year or early next. Mr. World 2018 will definitely happen in the May-June period so our next bet should be chosen a few months before.
So after Andrew Wolff, John Spainhour and Sam Ajdani, who could potentially be next? 🙂
Reigning Mr World Philippines Sam Ajdani and I
It was a well-attended product launch at Solaire Resort & Casino that gathered Queens – Miss World Megan Young, Miss Universe Philippines Rachel Peters, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International Elizabeth Clenci, Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International Leren Mae Bautista, Bb. Pilipinas International Janicel Lubina, Mutya ng Pilipinas Janela Joy Cuaton and Mutya ng Bohol Glyssa Perez – and Kings – Mister World Philippines titleholders Andrew Wolff and Sam Ajdani (the brand endorser) – for My Daily Collagen Drink which is a 100% Japan-made product that has hit the Philippine market for the first time.
Cristian Imazu of Nizona Japan and Ana Perez of Global Wellness Enterprise partnered to give us the everyday collagen drink for health and beauty. It is formulated to promote a firmer, youthful and radiant skin, as it is fortified with Collagen, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin C, Elastin and Royal Jelly. It will be made available in wellness shops and health/beauty counters of popular outlets very soon! A 100ml bottle costs only P149.00 each so it is the most reasonably-priced collagen drink available right now.
Everyone had a pleasant time during the launch as even the Japanese partners introduced their other products that will definitely be hits in the local market. If you want to be one of the first to give them a try, visit http://ph.buyjapanproducts.com
In the meantime, here are more photos from the said event.
Mr. World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani
That is the question in most everyone’s lips – at least the ones who are keenly following the Road to Mr World 2016 of Mr World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani who should have already arrived in Southport, UK last Saturday (July 9) as he was originally acheduled to board his Qatar Airways flight the afternoon of July 8.
The other candidates have already checked in. Practically every confirmed candidate has already been spotted bonding with the other arrivals in UK.
So I dug up just a bit.
According to my source (who will remain unnamed) It appears that there is still a concern regarding the granting of his UK Visa that needed to be sorted out fast. Something was overlooked in the process.
Hence, a flight re-booking had to be made. And hopefully, our Mr World 2016 rep will be able to leave for the host city today, Monday, July 11.
Sure wouldn’t want Sam to miss an important challenge of the competition! 🙂

Today is already July 8, Friday. Later this afternoon, Mr World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani will board his Qatar Airways flight that will bring him to London (via Doha) and whisked straight to Southport for the start of the competition for Mr World 2016, the Search for the World’s Most Desirable Man.
Yesterday afternoon, 26 year-old Sam was given his Official Send-off by ALV Events International of Arnold Vegafria at the Full Belly Craft Kitchen on Sgt Esguerra, QC. Selected members of the media were invited and our bet was game in answering all the questions fielded in, as well as the interview of several TV networks.
“I feel like I’m in a good place now, and I’m ready to enjoy this exciting journey. The real prize and honor is representing the country,” Sam declares
The 6’2″ Filipino-Iranian, whose Filipina mother (surnamed Vargas) comes from the Negros Island Region, is confident of himself and all the preparations he has made for the big mission up ahead. He has all bases covered – from multi-media to fitness regimen to sports training to fashion challenge all the way to the military-type of trials and the dreaded Q&A. Finals night will be on July 19.
“…I think I am intelligent enough to handle questions in the competition.” added Sam

As parting words, Sam was recorded saying the following:
Topless and sexy (Photo credit: Arvin Cruz)
Suave and oh-so-classy
Relaxed and ready to chill
If adjectives will be applied to Mr World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani, “suave”, “debonair”, “sexy”, “fashionable” and “smooth” would immediately come to mind. He has practically all the qualities one can look for in a man so desirable that taking part in a competition like Mr World 2016 would be perceived by many as just a walk in the park. But even before our expectations of him would cross over the fence many times over, there is still the element of luck that he needs to have by his side to see him through the competition.
You see, the profile of previous Mr World winners has been quite unpredictable. Just consider the last three – Denmark’s Nicklas Pedersen (a carpenter), Colombia’s Francisco Escobar (an international model) and Ireland’s Kamal Ibrahim (a television presenter). They each represent different types of desirability, so you can never tell what the organization would be looking for in the next.
Hopefully, Sam has got it all covered. He is ready for all the physical/sports challenges and would be extremely in his A-game for the runway and the photoshoots. I’m pretty sure he has gone through rigid Q&A sessions under Atty Nad Bronce of Aces & Queens as well. He will be leaving for Southport, UK very soon.
So is Mr World Philippines 2015 up to the challenge of winning our very first Mr World title? You can bet he is! 🙂

We all know that Mr. World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani is in the thick of preparations for Mr. World 2016
. He is scheduled to leave for Southport, UK first week of July to join other candidates in the search for the World’s Most Desirable Man.
In the meantime, check out his shots taken by fellow model and hunky Brapanese Hideo Muraoka (who is going into photography) in addition to the recently-uploaded videos he made on how to develop those fine abs while staying at home.

Before Mr. World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani immerses himself deep into all the preparations for Mr. World 2016, he wrote down his thoughts in one Facebook update to share with all friends, fans and followers who have been following his life here in the Philippines till now. More than fifteen (15) years and still counting.
Allow me to share the following:
“Today as I sat down by the pool I reflected upon my life and its events so far. it was mid 2004 when I first came to Philippines and I have been calling it home ever since. I don’t know where to begin, but if I have to begin somewhere it would be my family, they recognized how important it is for children to be independent and so they sent me and my brother here to learn and experience on our own. the things I have been through ever since.. the joy, the struggle, the pain, are nothing but love. I have learned that there is a good in everyone and our job as people on this earth is to discover that goodness and bring it out. if you can make a person feel good especially about themselves, then you have done your job and made a positive impact.
I’m writing this because I feel like this is a way for me to give back to some people who follow my story.
If things have been tough for you and you are struggling to have hope for a better tomorrow, here is my message to you.. Believe in yourself and never underestimate what God is capable of. If you want things to change you have to begin with yourself. Go toward the direction of your hearts desire and happiness will find you.
There will always be people who would unintentionally drag you down because they don’t know their potential or lack the confidence to pursue their dreams. Encourage them, lift them up but never let their negativity affect you. After all, this is your path and yours alone. I believe we all came to this life with a purpose and somewhere deep within us we have a voice calling to us and telling us what it is we are here for. Listen to that voice only, because everything else is details. Do not pay attention to details. To have a clear mind it is vital to let go of the past and memories that weaken you. If you don’t move on it would be impossible to take a step forward toward the light.
No matter what this voice is telling you, find the courage to go in that direction. Once you do that, life becomes more meaningful, more beautiful, and worthwhile. Take a step today and let tomorrow take care of itself. Today you have the opportunity to do more, to give more, and to be more.
Believe in yourself, let go of all the material things and money. Make a decision to love yourself and then you will fall in love with the journey.
Always do the right thing. Live your life on ethics rather than rules.
As the rest of this road unfolds each and every day, as you take one more step, remember that there are people who love you, people who will stand by you. Remember that God is walking this path with you. When you are in this place fear and every other negative emotion will start to fade away. Learn to master your emotions and you will be in alignment with the universe and all its goodness. Once the magic happens you will start to feel the energy flowing within and around you.. This is when things start to happen for you and not to you.
It really is that simple I believe; but first you have to believe in yourself!
