Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Marie Santiago is extraordinarily wonderful!
Yvethe and Yvethe
We’re going four-for-four with Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Marie Santiago who will be going to Krynica-Zdrój, Poland at right about the same time that Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson will be departing for Magdeburg, Germany.
In the movie classic “Mary Poppins” lead Oscar-winning actress Julie Andrews sang a song that contained the deliciously long neologism of a word “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” which refers to something extraordinarily good or wonderful or if you will, “something to say when you don’t know what to say.“
Yvethe is basically supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, or for pageant purposes, ‘Supracalifragilisticexpialidocious’. She is an exclamation of a beauty, someone who can either delight or surprise us come competition time for Miss Supranational 2014.
Yvethe and your blogger
And this Albayana
knows the steep climb to the crown. She is vying for a title where a fellow Bb. Pilipinas – Mutya Datul – is the reigning winner. And she has been steadily preparing herself for the challenge. She is aware that all eyes will be on her like a marked target that has been tattooed on her back.
But worry not. She’s up to the fight. And if it means muscling her way through the sea of beauties standing in her way, so be it. Supra or no Supra, she will still be -califragilisticexpialidocious! :-D

Yvethe, Valerie and Bianca: all going for back-to-back wins (Photo credit: Pao Oap)
Looking for victories in Miss World, Miss International and Miss Supranational are Valerie, Bianca and Yvethe, respectively
Call it fate, sheer coincidence or plain luck of the results. But Aces & Queens ended up with the major titleholders who will work hard for back-to-back wins abroad. It’s like a blind-folded Jonas Gaffud dipped his hand inside a velvet bag to select three random challenge chips and picked the tougher ones like clustered destiny.
But as the popular saying goes, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.” And when the successful track record becomes like second skin, the next step is to up the level of difficulty to see how far the envelope can be pushed.
As far as Miss World Philippines 2014 Valerie Weigmann, Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti and Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Marie Santiago are concerned, they will not settle for anything less than the crowns currently on the lovely heads of Megan Young, Bea Rose Santiago and Mutya Datul, respectively. The three missions sound ambitious. But the objective is to set the bar high, and not be distracted from focus. You can bet your bottom dollar that they will give more than their 100% best efforts to go for the big wins.
With our constant cheers and support, nothing is impossible for our Queens. After all, it’s #ForThePhilippines ! :-D
Miss Supranational Australia 2014 Yvonne Amores
Count Yvonne Amores in.
The lovely Filipina-Austrian model/TV presenter has just been crowned Miss Supranational Australia 2014 over the weekend and will represent Down Under in Krynica-Zdrój, Poland for Miss Supranational 2014 come December.
Sydney-based Yvonne, who also took part in Miss Philippines-Australia 2013 won by Melanie Balagtas, will now get the opportunity of competing along fellow Filipinas Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Marie Santiago and Miss Supranational Great Britain 2014 Zandra Flores for the title currently being held by Mutya Datul.

The new Miss Supranational Australia is gushing over her new crown.
Congratulations, Yvonne! :-D
P.S. To know more about Yvonne, you can check out her own website HERE.
Zandra Flores, Miss Supranational UK 2014
A ravishing Zandra
Call it never-ending determination. Call it tenacity. Call it whatever you want. Truth of the matter is that Zandra Flores got her wish granted – maybe not for Miss Universe and not for the Philippines – but she will take part in an international beauty competition. As the newly-installed Miss Supranational UK 2014, she will travel to Poland come late November for the much-anticipated finals set for the first weekend of December.
So with this new development, there will be at least three (3) Filipinas going to the spa town of Krynica- Zdrój – the reigning winner Mutya Datul, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Marie Santiago and Zandra. Nice!
Congratulations, Zandra! :-D
Thanks to Kiddo Macalma of TPQ for sharing the above.
All six ladies above will relinquish their crowns come November and December.
Just so you know, the biggest chunk of international pageants are scheduled from August to December. And the list above includes even the less popular competitions.
November and December remain to be the months with the heaviest loads in terms of prestige and popularity. We have Miss International and Miss Earth during the 11th month, with Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss Supranational (not be confused with the India-based version) all vying for attention during the Holidays.
And the coverage will most likely get messed up during the 4th Quarter of 2014. I will try everything possible, though, to keep my sanity intact. ;-)

The candidates of Miss China Landscape 2014
Tonight , Miss China Landscape International
2014 will culminate in the Grand Finals scheduled at the Westin Guangzhou where three (3) titleholders will be crowned as China’s representatives to Miss Supranational, Miss Grand International and Miss United Continents to be held later in the year.
Our Miss Supranational 2013 Mutya Datul, together with Mister International 2013 Jose Anmer Paredes, are in the host city right now to help crown and award the top placers. At the same time, Mark Manlapaz of Gouldian Atelier will sit as one of the judges to help select the winners.
I will wait for the results and see if the new Chinese queens will live up to the constantly evolving trends in modern pageantry. :-)
The Mikimoto-encrusted crown of Miss International and the reigning titleholder, Bea Rose Santiago.
Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago does not hide the fact that she loves traveling a lot. She simply finds fulfillment in visiting different countries and learning about their culture without having to spend an arm and a leg for plane fare and accommodations. So when she was crowned with the Mikimoto-encrusted crown last year, the anticipation for a string of personal appearances and crowning duties was well-justified. And why not? If the likes of Miss World 2013 Megan Young can country-hop non-stop and Miss Supranational 2013 Mutya Datul got to stay in Belarus with fulfilled invitations to places like Poland, Panama and Gabon during their reigns, why can’t she? Her year is about to end in four months’ time, and the antsy feeling can’t be helped.
Well, a little birdie whispered to my ear that the Japanese organizers allegedly charge a high amount for guest appearances of their winner. As a result, interested groups allegedly opt out even before negotiations can be started.
Definitely, the missed opportunities of this Miss are the stuff she can only reminisce with great regret by the end of 2014. But what can she do? Her title-related moves are just as good as what her ‘bosses’ will approve.
Let’s hope that she can at least be given the chance to travel to Korea and China before November arrives. ;-)
