Body Check. People are saying that Ara Arida is getting wider based on the photo above uploaded by Mutya Datul on IG.
Funny how we get to single out our beauty queens when they start gaining weight after representing us abroad and before turning over the crown to her successor.
Consider the image above. It was uploaded by Mutya Datul on her IG account. But instead of appreciating all three ladies, people started pounding on the ‘relatively healthier’ frame of Miss Universe Philippines 2013 Ara Arida during a recent ABS-CBN event. Our standards for ‘gaining weight’ are obviously very high for the Bb. Pilipinas titleholders. But it’s also possible that her angle above tends to widen her over-all stance.
Regardless, let’s cut her some slack for now. Maybe, this is the only period when she can have more than a couple of cheat days in her diet. I’m pretty sure John Cuay will whip her back to shape in the coming weeks so that she’ll be back to that 9.430* knockout figure by March 30. ;-)

Ara returns home and getting ready for her Presscon.
Just to let you know that our Miss Universe Philippines and Miss Universe 2013 3rd Runner-Up Ariella Arida has safely returned to the country. She is in high spirits and raring to participate in relief and charitable efforts to help the victims of Supertyphoon Yolanda. ABS-CBN will definitely take care of that.
Welcome back, Ara! :-)
Trust Photographer Niccolo Cosme to bring out the best in Miss Universe Philippines 2013 Ariella Arida. Both subject and clicker must be so inspired that the end results are nothing short of awe-inspiring. Truthfully, I have never seen our MU2013 bet so beautifully shot. And I am running out of adjectives to describe the images.
Share your impressions? ;-)

Miss Universe Philippines 2013 Ariella Arida is on the spotlight. And she deserves every single minute of it. Inspite of what her harshest critics would say, she has done her homework and is ready to show the Universe what she’s got.
At this point, she needs our wholehearted support. Of course, you are free to root for your favorites. Be it someone from Europe, North/Central/South America, Africa, Carribbean or Asia.
But at the end of the day, and if you’re a Filipino with even a fourth of the nationalism others have, then extending a portion of your pride in our representative shouldn’t be too difficult. After all, it’s only in the success of a Miss Philippines will your spirits soar high. :-)

The Official Send-off of Miss Universe Philippines 2013 Ariella ‘Ara’ Arida is now taking place at Gateway with family, friends, press, pageant supporters, beauty queens and Madame Stella Marquez de Araneta present to lend moral support to our rep who will depart for Moscow come Monday, October 21.
All I can say is…Best of luck, Ara!
And trite as it may sound, bring home the bacon. Preferably wet cured with Tender Quick and Russian vodka. ;-)
This will happen at 1PM today.
Miss Universe Philippines 2013 Ariella ‘Ara’ Arida is ready for her close-up.
At 1:00PM, all media reps, pageant fans and supporters (at least the invited ones) will troop to Gateway for Ara’s Official Send-Off to Miss Universe 2013. For sure, her Bb. Pilipinas 2013 sisters, plus Miss Universe Top 5 placers Janine Tugonon (still in the US so she begged off), Shamcey Supsup and Venus Raj, will be in attendance. As always, Madame Stella Marquez de Araneta will oversee everything to make sure that our rep is given a memorable turn.
Watch out for pictures of the event before the day wraps up. ;-)

While I don’t approve of the bangs – let alone a wig – Miss Universe Philippines 2013 Ara Arida is looking beautiful in the photo above.
