While she may have already commenced plotting her gameplan even way before everyone else, Valerie Weigmann officially started her intensive training for Miss World Philippines 2014 yesterday with all the Aces & Queens key individuals around.
So far, I have not heard of any other potential entry the beauty camp is planning to field in the competition. And by the looks of it, she is going to approach the whole thing the way MWP2013 and MW2013 Megan Young navigated hers.
Just look straight ahead, Valerie!
Never lose focus and keep your eyes on the prize, just like the Germans who earlier won the FIFA World Cup 2014. :-D

“I really wish I made all my mamas and sisters proud. The journey was highly influenced by the trainings, meetings, and everything in between and beyond shared with them. I hope I’d be able to maximize this year. The difficult part is just about to start.”
- Krischelle Halili, Miss Manila 2014
It would be an understatement to say that newly-crowned Miss Manila Krischelle “KC” Halili is happy to have won the title last June 24. She is ecstatic, over-the-moon with joy even.
And for what she has achieved, KC is deeply grateful for all the guidance and trainings she received from Aces & Queens. Her transformation in their hands is something she would have never imagined possible at the onset. But now that she has proven herself capable of the objective she has targetted for herself, the platform to initiate some change or to further the worthy projects of the City of Manila is already in her midst.
From this point, Miss Manila 2014 is dedicating her time, knowledge and effort to becoming an effective ambassadress.
Life indeed happens in Manila. And Krischelle Halili is out to prove that.
Raring to start her productive reign as Miss Manila 2014, Krischelle Halili is. (Photo credit: Edmund Chua for Fabmanilaph)
Good luck, Girl! :-D

During the Birthday Sparty of Jonas Gaffud at Bluewater Day Spa, Valerie Weigmann was such a lovely presence as she gamely joined in the fun, while delightfully and formally introducing herself to everyone in attendance.
It’s no secret that she will be fielded by Aces & Queens in Miss World Philippines 2014. The only other question that begs to be answered is whether she will be the solo entry of the beauty camp, or will there be a second possible bet waiting on the wings to be prepped for the same?
The excitement will further heat up soon.
Let’s watch out for further developments. ;-)
Who's side are you on?
And the eternal battle of the two beauty camps continues.
If everything falls into place, we could see two mixed-race beauties gunning for glory in Miss World Philippines 2014 – Fil-German Valerie Weigmann of Aces & Queens and Fil-American Lorraine Kendrickson of Kagandahang Flores.
So far, this pair appears to be the flag-bearers of their respective camps in the beauty competition that will look for the successor of Miss World Philippines 2013 Megan Young who went on to win our first Miss World crown.
Between the two, 5’9″ Valerie has the advantage in terms of media exposure as she has been a segment regular in the GMA-7 noontime show Eat Bulaga, while 5’6″ Lorraine is still the reigning Miss Dumaguete.
So, dear readers, are you on Team Valerie or Team Lorraine? :-)

If my percentages are accurate, the three major beauty camps make up a big chunk of candidates in Miss Philippines Earth 2014. Around 71% come from Kagandahang Flores, 12% from Aces & Queens, 4% from House of JDV and the remaining 13% (or approximately 6 contenders) are independents. And Rosebel Bastasa of Jose Dalman, Zamboanga del Norte is one of the unaffiliated beauties who need to work double-time in order to get their share of media exposure and pre-pageant spotlights. Not an easy thing to accomplish if you ask me. But the girl remains unfazed and focused on the commitment she signed up for.
Hopefully, she will find some sort of reward for her dedication during the May 11 finals night.
Keep on fighting, Rosebel! ;-)
For the past couple of weeks, followers of Jonas Gaffud on Facebook may have noticed his time-intervaled teasers on popular celebrities and/or significant individuals who have been quoted saying distinct statements that talk about inner beauty and the like. Well, the guy is not simply taking things on a whim by putting them up. There is a clear and worth-looking-forward-to reason behind the same. And the answer will be slowly revealed in the days to come.
For now, let us all appreciate and follow the trail leading to Project: Beautiful You. :-)
Is your blogger being sandwiched by two future Miss Philippines Earth possibilities? Will Diana Arevalo join next year after Ross Misa in the current edition?
We all know that Mary Anne Ross Misa is currently in the thick of the fight and hoping to become Miss Philippines Earth 2014 before mid-May. As of now, she has become one of the favorites to nail the crown during the finals at SM MOA Arena.
But how about Diana Arevalo? I hear that after disappointment over the results of Bb. Pilipinas 2014, she is now more open to spreading her wings furthermore before it becomes so dangerously late (age-wise, that is). Will she take the more environmental route and hook up with Miss Philippines Earth 2015?
Just thinking out loud while gracefully trying to outpose these beautiful ladies. ;-)
Miss Sta. Rita, Pampanga Angelie Crizelle Ocampo is giving her best to clinch the MPE2014 crown.
Angelie Crizelle Ocampo is having the time of her life representing Sta. Rita, Pampanga in Miss Philippines Earth 2014. One of six (6) Aces & Queens entries, she is actually doing fine in the competition so far, and is always being tagged as a favorite alongside the preferred ladies attending the more important pre-pageant functions.
This sweet, lovely 5’7.5″ lass is getting the full support of her provincemates, especially in the online voting poll for Miss Photogenic. If she ends up getting the crown or one of the important elements, then I reckon there will be non-stop cheers. Do you like her, dear readers? :-)

Has Hannah Mariz dela Guerra been convinced to join Miss World Philippines 2014?
Early buzz from the Aces & Queens camp is that Hannah Mariz dela Guerra is also being eyed to make the big jump to Miss World Philippines 2014 soon after her stint as Binibini 5 during Bb. Pilipinas 2014. And I will be in full support of the girl if ever. She has one of the loveliest faces in the nationals and it would be a waste to let go of all her trainings and transformations without giving another pageant a try.
If you ask someone like Miss World 2013 Megan Young, I bet she will give her thumbs up as well for this lovely Atenean. Our Queen already knows the type of girl Miss World Organization is looking for. Add to that the very likeable personality and charming ways and we could have a potential winner in her.
Let’s see if Hannah Mariz will finally give her resounding ‘yes’. :-)
P.S. So much for my so-called Holy Week break. Even from the calm and comforting highlands, I still couldn’t keep myself from blogging. Somebody snatch this freakin’ tablet (I am so loving my LG GPad 8.3!) from my hands now! ;-)
Melanie Balagtas - Miss Fil-Sydney in MPE2014 - and your blogger
Actually, our meeting last Sunday night was already the second. The first time, however, was just an initial introduction that consisted of small talks and perfunctory pleasantries.
When I finally got around into sitting down with this beautiful Lia Andrea Ramos-deadringer, I discovered a young lady of 22 summers who is approaching the Miss Philippines Earth 2014 with the mix of nervousness and excitement expected from someone dipping her feet in a national competition for the first time. While our conversation was spiced with a few juicy inside tidbits that I promised won’t see the light of blogging anymore, she captured my attention with the way she puts her message across – sweet and unpretentious.
Melanie Balagtas has the passion for learning and improving herself – something that is topmost in her head right now. Not wanting to disappoint the people back in the Filipino Community of Sydney, Australia, she constantly yearns for comments and criticisms (especially from Jonas Gaffud who was observing and giving her on-the-spot tips that night) that would help improve the way she speaks and presents herself to everyone. And while the little girl inside still peeks during unguarded moments, she has transformed herself into the classy mold of a modern Filipina.
Miss Fil-Sydney knows that the competition is tough, and she hasn’t fully learned how to fend off all the intrigues and fellow candidates with unpredictable personalities yet. But she sure is ready to give it a good fight till the very end. Element or no element in hand. ;-)
