When the Miss World Philippines 2015 Talent Competition got underway at Manila Pianos last night, it wasn’t difficult to spot the potential contenders for the special award. And boy, do these ladies know the real importance of having special skills when it comes to Miss World.
Essentially, Avonlea Paraiso was the unique standout with her harp-playing ingenuity. She was cool and collected while performing on the said musical instrument. Emma Tiglao was also worth singling out for her authentic ethnic dance presentation, just as Mia Allyson Howell took to the stage with a mean Pasa Doble. Meanwhile, Kiara Gregorio exhibited her mastery of using shiny shimmering materials transformed into a kaleidoscope of color and glitter in her rhythmic turn. But then again, the judges could also give a nod to the magic tricks of Vianca Louise Marcelo.

Let’s see who will actually get the special award come October 18 during the finals of Miss World Philippines 2015 at Solaire. :-)
The Miss World Philippines 2015 Official Candidates visit PGH
As part of the pre-pageant activities of Miss World Philippines 2015, the candidates visited the children’s cancer ward of the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) where one of the BWAP (Beauty With A Purpose) projects of the Miss World Organization was started. While they could not come close to most of the critical young patients, they were made to cheer the stronger ones who were just too happy to meet up with their beautiful visitors.
As you can watch in the 24 Oras news clip below, most of them were really affected by what the sick children are going through.

While the finals of Miss Grand International 2015 won’t be until October 25, the judgment night of Miss Globe 2015 will already take place at the Rose Theater this coming Thursday, October 8 (Friday early morning in Manila).
And some sources are saying that Miss Philippines Ann Colis is now the girl to beat, unless she gets upended by someone else. But all things being fair and equal, we might just get our first Miss Globe crown soon. Things are simply going her way, inspite of the small intrigues and rumors along the way.
As for Parul in Bangkok, she is just starting her trek. With Miss India Vartika Singh, she is already expected to closely bond with (photo below) just like with roomie Shauny Bult of Netherlands. The upcoming days will see them enjoying the sights of the Land of Smiles and neighboring provinces. I’d like to see how she will present herself on a daily basis.
Good luck to you, Ann and Parul! ;-)

The finals will happen this coming Friday, October 9 and the Philippines is being represented by Patricia Cabawatan who is looking lovely in the National Costume made by Jay Dee Abustan in the photo above.

This is how Pia’s body actually looks now. Thanks to John Cuay for all the expert help and fitness guidance.
Pia and John Cuay: An Excellent Tandem
“Just the visibility of her six packs and tone thighs, and she’ll be ready to show Miss China the perfect Ms Universe body.”
Those are the exact words of Fitness Guru John Cuay after uploading a photo grid showing the body of Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. No filters. No nothing. Just plain hardwork and determination for both the trainer and the student.
The focus is unshakeable. And you can tell that, despite the increasing levels of difficulty by the day, Pia never complains. Sure, she gives updates of her “ordeals” in jest, but that’s just to show everyone that she continues to be up for the challenge. And will never ever let up.
See what the use of a chair can do to help Pia achieve her body below. ;-)

There must really be something about Miss Grand Netherlands 2015 Shauny Bult that brings her close to our Bb. Pilipinas Queens as pageant roommates. Last year, she ended up sharing a room with Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Bianca Guidotti during Miss International in Tokyo, Japan. And they’ve become so close that the former even spent one month of vacation here in Manila last August.
And now, she is rooming with another Filipina once more. This time around, she has been assigned with our Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2015 Parul Shah. And at the rate that I am sizing up both ladies, I feel that they will bond fast. I personally know Shauny to be a sensible and intelligent girl, just like our bet.
The picture above – taken just before removing their makeups – won’t be the first and last for sure. And in the days to come, they will become closer.
Rule the competition, Parul and Shauny! :-D
