Group hug for (left to right): Hannah, Parul, MJ, Yvethe, Kris and Bianca
There has never been a better time for our Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens to get real close and sisterly with each other than now.
One by one, they will head off to their respective pageant assignments (at least four of them) starting next month with Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental Kris Tiffany Janson leaving for Jordan on October 5. After her, Bb. Pilipinas International Bianca Guidotti will head to Tokyo on October 25 – right on the same day that a Miss Intercontinental will be crowned. A few weeks later, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational Yvethe Marie Santiago will get her date with destiny as she embarks on a much-awaited trip to Poland to gun for a back-to-back victory in Krynica-Zdrój. And for the pièce de résistance, Miss Universe Philippines MJ Lastimosa will be sent-off (to a still unknown destination) in an almost date-overlapping fashion for Miss Universe 2014 by mid-November as well.
In all of these, our Queens will have each other’s back as moral and emotional support. Individually, their targets are zeroed in on claiming victory abroad. As a group, their mission is united – to be the most successful Bb. Pilipinas batch of winners. :-D

Our Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens – MJ Lastimosa, Bianca Guidotti, Kris Janson, Yvethe Santiago, Parul Shah and Hannah Ruth Sison – took the time to attend the Love Yourself Foundation
seminar on HIV/AIDS Awareness so as to further their knowledge about the same and, in the process – help spread the word as well as the support system that the organization
can provide to those diagnosed with the disease.

Bb. Pilipinas 2014 2nd Runner-Up Hannah Ruth Sison is one dutiful Binibini. Even without the promise (even a possibility) of being fielded in an international pageant, she is keeping up with the responsibilities of her placement. And for a level-headed individual like her, this is the right way to get into the good grace of people at BPCI. A cooperative winner will always be welcome. And if she continues with the right attitude (and I know she will), there could be a shining light at the end of the tunnel (or her reign, if you will). ;-)
Five of the 7 Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens (L-R): Kris Janson, Bianca Guidotti, MJ Lastimosa, Parul Shah and Hannah Sison visited the offices of the Philippine Daily Inquirer for an interview.
The Queens with their “guyitos”
The other day, our Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens (minus Yvethe Santiago who was in Legazpi City and Laura Lehmann who was in school
) trooped to the offices of Philippine Daily Inquirer for a group interview with some of the media reporters and professionals of the well-respected newspaper. It was a fun talk where questions thrown veered away from very serious subject matters and focused more on their individual personalities, lifestyle and plans during their respective reigns. Photo ops galore followed but not after they were given their complimentary “guyito” stuffed toys (the Inquirer’s mascot
The “Inquirers” and the Queens in a photo op.

This is a belated post about the activity of the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens last Fathers’ Day when they personally appeared at the Gateway for ‘All-Out Freedom: A Celebration of Freedom and Father’s Day Back to Back’ followed by the Looking For Juan Art exhibit where the seven ladies got themselves caricatured by guest artists.
By the way, the artworks on exhibit – organized by Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development (CANVAS) – will run at the Gateway Activity Center up to June 21 (which is today) so you still have time to catch the same.

Will Parul Shah start and end her reign without representing us overseas?
Will BPCI find a beauty competition for Laura Lehmann and Hannah Ruth Sison to join abroad?
The spotlight may not go their direction as often as they would want the attention lingering in their midst. Take for example Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014 Parul Shah. With the supposed affiliation of Miss Tourism Queen International with BPCI, she should have already prepared and left for China to take part in the former. But somehow, that prospect doesn’t seem to be shaping up in the immediate horizon (unless fresh developments in the last 24 hours will say otherwise). While there are countless other “Tourism” titles available, the organizers are careful in forging ties with just any foreign group with no impressive track record. It’s enough that MTQI is no longer giving out a prestigious vibe. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for Parul, though.
And as runners-up, both Laura Lehmann and Hannah Ruth Sison could only hope for the best and pray that something more productive lands on their laps by way of a beauty contest fielding abroad. It could be a double-edged sword should something of the sort takes place, however. It will definitely prevent them from re-joining next year if a formal title is bestowed on their behalf. Just ask Elaine Kay Moll who was declared Miss Supranational Philippines in the middle of serving her 1st Runner-Up status back in 2012.
So how will the rest of their respective Binibini experiences unfold in the coming months ahead? Well, your guesses could just be as good as mine. ;-)
