Real-life sweethearts Alexis Martinez and Marielle Arrozal are Panama-bound for Miss and Mister Wonderful World 2015
Marielle and Alexis will spread their love to Panama
There is a very interesting development in the search for our country’s male and female representatives to Miss and Mister Wonderful World International 2015 to be hosted in Panama come September. Alexis Martinez, who won Mr. Luzon during Mister United Continents Philippines 2015, was first to be announced as Mister Wonderful World Philippines 2015. Shortly after, I was still awaiting word as to who will be his lady counterpart for the same competition. Lo and behold, Marielle Arrozal – who happens to be the long-time girlfriend of Alexis – was appointed as Miss Wonderful World Philippines 2015. Some sort of a stroke of genius, I might add.
Alexis and Marielle can closely coordinate on their plan of action on how to go about competing in Panama. Since Miss and Mister Wonderful World International 2015 is all about giving to the less privileged ones, I’m pretty sure both of them will find it a breeze to sincerely share their charitable side and give a concerted effort for the Philippines all throughout the pageant duration.
Good luck to both Kapampangans! And may the certified franchise holder Glenn Aparis find success in fielding Alexis and Marielle in the competition. :-)

During my brief stay in Bacolod and La Carlota City as a judge in Pasalamat Festival Queen 2015 last weekend, I had the pleasure of being introduced to one of the previous titleholders. And boy, did the girl wow me upon first meeting.
Her name is Kreenz Amor Cordero, aged 20 years and stands 5’7″. She won the Pasalamat title back in 2013. A Medical Technology major of the University of Negros Occidental – Recoletos (UNO-R), she is actually considering different possibilities before making the ultimate decision on whether to focus on a career as a full-pledged MedTech or otherwise.
I promised the girl to check out all pageant-related options she can commit to once in Manila. She has a Venus Raj vibe and actually looks a lot more beautiful in person.
Let’s see what I can come up with for Kreenz. ;-)

The Swimsuit Competition winners of MPE2015 (left to right): Miss City of Manila Angelia Ong, Bronze; Miss San Antonio, Nueva Ecija Chanel Olive Thomas, Gold; Mhon Theress Menaling, Mandaue City, Silver
At the plush Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa
, the much-anticipated swimsuit competition of Miss Philippines Earth 2015 was held last weekend with much funfare. All the candidates were in their fittest selves as they stepped up to the plate in hopes of getting one of medals at stake in the sub-event that is considered by many as a preview of who will make it to the top on finals night.
As expected by many, Miss San Antonio, Nueva Ecija Chanel Olive Thomas scored the highest among the judges and got Gold. She was followed by Mandaue City’s Mhon Theress Menaling who settled for the Silver, with Miss City of Manila’s Angelia Ong salvaging the Bronze to complete the trio of winners that night.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see all three ladies taking three of the Top 5 spots on May 31, i.e., if none among them will falter in the pre-final Q&A and sustain the drive to secure an elemental placement. ;-)

Janicel does the island girl shot
While Bb. Pilipinas International 2015 Janicel Lubina draws a good number of oohs and aahs whenever new photos surface online, she also gets her share of less-than-pleasant comments from those who are still unconvinced by her beauty and all. Be that as it may, one things remains – she is a photographer’s delight. The girl knows how to do an assortment of poses for the camera and can actually give deliver delightful shots that will show how she has started to master the art of projecting herself click after click. She may appear catalogue-ish in some of them. But all in all, she is capable of giving her fans and supporters the kind of look and aura they expect from a beauty queen. ;-)

Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Santiago walking the streets of Shinjuku in Tokyo
These days, Japan is fast taking over Hong Kong and Bangkok as the favorite Asian destination of Filipino travelers. Credit goes to the significantly relaxed granting of tourist visas of the Japanese Embassy.
And one of those who took advantage of visiting The Land of the Rising Sun during the Labor Day weekend was Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Marie Santiago who tagged along her first-ever best friend (her sister Ivy, actually) and fully enjoyed themselves in Tokyo. In particular, our 2014 Queen was in her happiest mood when time came to visit Tokyo Disney Resort.

By now, Yvethe must have already returned from the trip and looking forward to her next post-Bb. Pilipinas projects.
At least, Tokyo is now one item off her bucket list. ;-)

Over the long Labor Day weekend, The Supermodel International 2015 held its grand finals at the Fontana Convention Center in Clark, Pampanga.
The Colombian “black-is-beautiful” representative, Alexandra Arboleda, was named winner after she outlasted thirty-one (31) other contenders for the title. She was crowned by her predecessor Stephanie Cruz of Puerto Rico. Joining her in the Top 5 (ranked in this order) are the entries of Mongolia, Cambodia, New Zealand and Belgium.
Lending some glitter to the proceedings was the presence of two (2) Mister International winners – our very own Neil Perez and Jose Anmer Paredes from 2013.
Congratulations for winning another title this year, Colombia! :-)
