Our 3rd Top Picks Poll for Miss Universe Poll closed last night with three (3) more ladies automatically making it to our 4th and Final Top Picks Poll starting in just a few hours. Yaritza Reyes of Dominican Republic, Alexia Viruez of Bolivia and Guadalupe Gonzalez of Paraguay locked the Top 3 spots to secure their places in the list of 15 ladies who will vie for your votes in the big one.
Below is a screenshot of how the votes stacked up for the ten highest.
The Top 10 Vote Getters
Together with six (6) others – Ara Arida, Chalita Yaemwannang, Whulandary Herman, Jennifer Ondo, Olivia Wells and Erin Brady – the three above will form the initial line-up for our final poll. The remaining spots will be decided upon by your blogger based on hype/popularity and over-all impact so far.
Watch out for the next poll!
P.S. I may exercise the option to add one or two names to the 15 ladies later depending on how their arrival and participation in Moscow unfold.
After a total of 37,906 votes collected from our 1st Top Picks Poll for Miss Universe 2013, an Asian domination was unraveled. The Philippines’ Ariella Arida, Thailand’s Chalita Yaemwannang and Indonesia’s Whulandary Herman are now seeded to the Final Picks Poll for Miss Universe 2013 come October. So please don’t be surprised if their names and photos are no longer included in the 2nd Top Picks Poll which officially starts today, August 1.
I am now formally presenting our 1st Top Picks Poll for Miss Universe 2013. The main objective is to find out who among the elected candidates of this year’s edition are preferred by my blog readers and visitors. Initially, I included 25 of the more talked-about contenders so far (presented in random order everytime you access the poll or load the page). I will add choices as I see them fit (like Miss Australia for example) or you may also add your own selection on the “other” blank in the poll.
After a grand total of 167,035 votes casted, we have finally arrived at this juncture where the Top 15 ladies with the highest numbers have been determined from our near-month long Pick 15 Poll. In this order, they are:
Instead of the four-way poll I originally planned, a second Final 15 poll will be introduced starting today and will run until the midnight of April 10. You can only vote for four (4) delegates who you feel deserve to win the crowns at stake. In the end, the top placer will be pegged for Miss Universe Philippines, the 2nd placer for Bb. Pilipinas International, the 3rd placer for Bb. Pilipinas Tourism and the 4th placer for Miss Supranational Philippines. As an added token, the 2nd Runner-Up position will be assigned to whoever finishes 5th.
I encourage everyone to be discerning with your choices. Even if your favorites did not make it to the Final 15, I’m pretty sure you will find one among the selection who comes closest to your preferred winner. And might I add that we’re back to square one today, so the 15th placer will have just as much chance to zoom to the top.
Note: Angel May Villafuerte is actually #16, but moved up to #15 following the resignation of Theresa Fenger.
I am an iPhone freak. In fact, I consider myself an Apple freak even if I don’t own a Macbook. I do have my iPod Touch, iPod Classic and iPod Nano used alternately depending on my mood and/or daily persuasion. What I love most are the applications that come with the iPhone and iPod Touch. Once I got started with a few of them, I just couldn’t stop. So as the topic of my first blog poll, I decided to focus on the applications that you find very useful and handy. The first 4 choices above are the ones I consider most useful, but should you have one of your own, feel free to add an answer. Giving a comment on your pick will also make things more fun.
Shazam iPhone Application
For the uninitiated, Shazam is one cool app. Remember the time when you were listening to a particularly catchy song on the radio but couldn’t recognize the title and artist? Well, fret not. Just open Shazam and hold it close to the speaker and after 15 seconds (or a little more), basic details (plus album artwork) will appear on your phone’s screen!
Snaptell iPhone application
Snaptell, on the other hand, is a visual version of Shazam. If you would like to know more info about a particular item (be it a book, gadget, dvd movie etc.), just take a clear shot of the same using your iPhone’s camera, then activate Snaptell, upload the image and voila! You can read the details (even reviews) to your heart’s delight!
Air Sharing iPhone application
Air Sharing is one document-viewing app that allows you to mount your iPhone or iPod Touch as a wireless drive on your laptop or PC. You can also drag-drop files between your iPhone and laptop using this. Lastly, Quick Office is quite self-explanatory.
Hi! Norman here. When I'm not working, I spend most of my free time planning on daily blogs. If you will notice, I always make sure that a fresh topic comes out everyday - not an easy thing to do but it's all good. Thanks for dropping by and enjoy the visit! (BTW, I am joined by Miss Universe Philippines 2013 Ara Arida in my gravatar.)
