Behind the Scenes of our June Cover Shoot with Kuya Kim Atienza and FamilyThe Atienza family and their home make for a very interesting Father's Month feature.
We couldn’t have picked a better celebrity to grace Smart Parenting’s Father’s Month issue. Known to avid TV fans as Kuya Kim and to his former constituents in Manila as Alejandro Atienza, Kuya Kim personifies the true essence of a loving husband and father.
When we learned that Kuya Kim’s cover shoot was to be done at his home, we were thrilled, having heard so many interesting things about the other tenants, a.k.a. their numerous pets. They weren’t kidding when they said that this family is animal-friendly. As we witnessed ourselves, dogs and birds and even species one wouldn’t normally consider for pets filled the house, even outnumbering the human inhabitants (36 dogs!). The numerous paintings, sculptures and other artworks only added to our curiosity. On the night of the shoot, we had to wait a few minutes for Kuya Kim to finish his TV Patrol segment, but it didn’t seem long at all because we were entertained by his lovely wife Fely and kids Jose, Meimei and Emman.
