Val during her visit to an evacuation center in Albay
When Miss World Philippines 2014 Valerie Weigmann guested on GMA-7’s Startalk last Saturday afternoon, she took the opportunity to thank all her supporters, aside from answering the questions of hosts Joey de Leon and Heart Evangelista. You can definitely see how her previous stint in the noontime variety show Eat Bulaga
has helped in her public speaking, especially in the vernacular.
When asked by host Joey de Leon if she is ready to win the country’s 2nd Miss World crown, Val confidently answered.
“Reading-ready na…I will put myself into this. I want to be best that I can be. And I want to show the world that we are deserving it…”
Go watch the whole video now. :-)

When was the last time you saw Ms. Cory Quirino holding up an umbrella to someone else? (Photo credit: Melvin Sia for Fabmanilaph)
Remember the photo above – showing Ms. Cory Quirino holding up an umbrella for Miss World Philippines 2014 Valerie Weigmann – which elicited both delight and a few creased foreheads? Well, Albay Governor Joey Salceda was nice enough to upload more photos of their arrival at the airport in Legazpi City. The following images should clearly explain what transpired from the time they stepped out of the plane, down the stairs to the tarmac and walking straight to the spot where they met all the welcoming officials.
This is a continuation of the photo above where Valerie's assigned umbrella holder rushed to meet them on the tarmac.
So halfway through the tarmac, Ms. Cory got the umbrella to her own and the assigned holder for Valerie took over.
Technically, it was only less than a full minute that Ms. Cory held up the umbrella for Valerie.
Ms. Cory Quirino did hold the umbrella for Valerie, even if it was only for less than a minute.
Have a good weekend, dear readers! :-D

Tell me. When was the last time you saw Ms. Cory Quirino holding up an umbrella to someone else? Very recently, I must say.
You see, the MWP Director is very protective of her Queen, especially nowadays that Miss World Philippines 2014 is less than a month away from departing for Miss World 2014 in London.
And in the recent Albay Homecoming of Valerie Weigmann, it was drizzling when they landed in Legazpi City. With nobody to immediately protect her from getting wet, Ms. Cory took matters in her own hands, opened a golf umbrella and shielded the crowned beauty herself.
What’s more, she has committed to staying by Valerie’s side – a la Julia Morley – till arrival in UK, by which time Miss World Organization will take over. Perhaps, she will resume the constant trailing after the December 14 finals? ;-)
Despite the intermittent rains, Val went through the motorcade like a real trouper.
Getting herself ready for the courtesy calls
Earlier in the day, newly-crowned Miss World Philippines 2014 Valerie Weigmann departed for Legazpi City in Albay where a scheduled homecoming took place in her mother’s birthplace. Together with Ms. Cory Quirino and handler Caloy Buendia, they had separate courtesy calls with Gov. Joey Salceda and Vice-Gov. Harold Imperial. A motorcade followed which, despite the drizzles, went on as planned. A meet-up was also conducted where members of the Bicol Press showed up to do interviews and be in awe with her beautiful presence.
Our Queen also visited two evacuation centers in Camalig North and Upper Malabog to see for herself the condition of the families staying there.
All in all, it was a day well-spent for Valerie. It may have been a tiring sked, but nothing that would keep her from doing each and every detail in her full itinerary. :-)

The images above and left cannot be called prophetic at this point because they are already anticipated shots due to the mandated transfer of the national crown of Megan Young to her successor Valerie Weigmann.
But taking things into a higher level of wishful thinking should give more reasons to hope that Megan’s other crown – the blue one – will find its way to the head of Valerie. And honestly, it’s not at all impossible.
Back-to-backs are nothing new to the London-based pageant. Before Miss Universe had its first way back in 2008 and 2009 for Venezuela, Miss World has already managed three (3) for Sweden (1951 & 1952), UK (1964 & 1965) and India (1999 & 2000).
So let me repeat my question. Just what are the chances? ;-)

When Miss World Philippines 2014 Valerie Weigmann departs for London by mid-November, she will arrive with the whole-hearted recommendation of Ms. Cory Quirino to Julia Morley. And why not? The MWP Head knows that she’s got the complete package in the girl who could possibly go for a back-to-back Miss World win.
This early, I can count on Valerie to figure out in the Top Model, Beach Beauty, Multimedia and Beauty with a Purpose fast-track segments of the competition. Talent-wise, she’ll need to polish her magician show to be taken more seriously by the judges. But if she can take a lesson or two from MWP2014 Miss Talent Jean Marie Feliciano who was unanimously praised for her smooth tricks, that would mean a worthwhile skill improvement to her act.

And wardrobe-wise, I am pretty confident that she will be bringing luggages of beautiful creations from some our noted fashion designers like Francis Libiran, Cherry Veric and some of the members of Vatican Fashion Museum like Yako Reyes and Eric delos Santos.
So this early, I’d say that our Miss World 2014 will be fighting #ForThePhilippines with all her might.
