Miss Baguio City went to her beloved City of Pines to shoot the environmental video for MPE2015
Sofia by Bruce Casanova
Just recently, Miss Baguio City Sofia Loren Deliu returned to her beloved City of Pines with the glam team (headed by her handler Shandy Montecarlo Lim for KF
) to shoot the required environmental video for Miss Philippines Earth 2015. And it was a completely different lady seen by the tourists as she wore a juicy red gown that made her fair beauty shine even more.
To complete her advocacy clips, the Police Inspector also visited her colleagues at the Philippine National Police (PNP) to do some essential takes that will show her unique profession – the decisive edge she can use to perform well in the beauty pageant.
I’m looking forward to seeing the final cut of her vid. That should be an interesting watch. ;-)

While another candidate was preferred by the majority to win, Vanessa Tevi Kumares took the title instead
Vanessa Tevi Kumares, Miss Malaysia Universe 2015
She was not the most popular choice to win, but Vanessa Tevi Kumares defied the odds and went home with the Miss Universe Malaysia 2015 crown. She defeated strong favorite Kelly Jagan who managed only to score 2nd Runner-Up honors in the final ranking.
23 year-old Vanessa is of Chinese-Indian heritage although her Oriental descent is far more reflected in her looks. A Tourism Management graduate from the UK, she recently worked for a hotel in Singapore where her fluency in Mandarin was put to good use.
This girl, who will now represent Malaysia in Miss Universe 2015, is very well-spoken and has loads of personality to put her steps ahead of the competition in terms of expressing herself.
Your thoughts on her, dear readers? :-)

Before Reynaldo Cataluna III was elected Mister United Continents Philippines 2015 last Tuesday night, he was simply Mr. Angono who vied for the title alongside more than thirty (30) other aspirants gunning for male pageant glory. But it was crystal clear going into the finals that he is one of the top favorites. Aside from his appealing face and physique, the guy can also express himself well enough to subdue the onslaught of contenders who are considered more handsome by skin-deep standards. As a result, he will now be the country’s bet to Mister United Continents 2015 to be hosted here in Manila next month.
I can still remember his Q&A turn that could have clinched the win. It went something like “Question: Are you a giver or a taker? Answer: I’m a taker. opportunity comes only once so take it.”

Watch the advocacy video he did for the pageant now. His main thrust is the appreciation and preservation of painted art which has made Angono popular for.

Mister International 2012 Jose Anmer Paredes is now Singapore-based and frequently visits Manila

Look who flew in to Manila recently to check out potential modeling and endorsement projects. Mister International 2012 Jose Anmer Paredes, that’s who. The predecessor of Mister International 2014/15 Neil Perez has been residing in Singapore for months now, following the economic recession that has hit Venezuela. Hey, if the grass is greener this side of the globe, then why not get his share of the pie if he can.
You’re always welcome, Jose Anmer! ;-)

Ines Ligron (right) finally met up with Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach
Ines - love her or love her less?
Frenchwoman Ines Ligron always gets mixed reactions from Filipino pageant fans. It’s either you love her or love her less. And it seems that she is in the same company as Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach who is also drawing both good and bad feedbacks from a legion of followers and critics divided right smack in the middle.
One thing is certain, though. Ines and Pia mutually admire each other, with the former actually in a more gushing mood especially during their first meeting and dinner at Solaire last night. Check out her status update about the meet-up:
“Finally we met with beautiful Pia Alonso for an early diner at Solaire. I am sincerely so impressed with Pia, she is so beautiful in person, not only in pictures, i was so right to believe in her!
She has the perfect face: spectacular eyes like 2 beautiful butterflies. She is very eloquent and still manages to be bubbly. She will do great for sure at Miss Universe. Her body is ready, she has the curves to compete against the European and the Latinas.
It was good for me to see the girls bonding together. Hiroko and Valerie were very impressed with Pia when they were chatting and giving her advise. This is the real universal spirit!

Our Bb. Pilipinas International 2015 Janicel Lubina was the subject of an article in Japan. Click above if you can read Japanese.

In a Japanese article
(from livedoor News and Xinhuaxia
) reported by the correspondent of Missosology
in Tokyo, our Bb. Pilipinas International 2015 Janicel Lubina was the subject matter where her humble beginnings were detailed, including the time when she worked as a househelp.
The said article was written in an entirely positive light (try clicking on the links and reading the same in Japanese if you are capable of doing so). And accordingly, Janicel’s life has been compared to a Cinderella story.
Miss International 2015 won’t be until November 5, and a lot of new developments can still happen between now and the time she finally competes in Tokyo. But it does help that our bet has already started getting noticed by the Japanese Press. A word of caution, though. We cannot read into this far deeper than what the introductory aim of the article suggests.
Let’s just be tickled pink for now. ;-)
