It has been an exciting 24 hours for BlackJacks after 2NE1 arrived in Manila yesterday.
We reported their arrival
. Initial reports speculated that the girls are here on a vacation.
An insider told MYXph today that 2NE1 had a pictorial yesterday at the pool area of Maxim's Hotel and other selected areas at Resorts World.
During their down time, 2NE1 member Dara was spotted hanging out with Filipino friends at the 5th floor of The Terrace of Maxim's wearing an all-red jogging pants outfit.
A bit of online sleuthing led us to some Blackjacks who snapped photos of the girls at Resorts World. Thanks to Cheska Nolasco for sharing the photos and Chamok for the videos!
