This one's happening tonight!
One of the thirty ladies above will be crowned Miss Casino Filipino 2014 tonight
While a big chunk of my friends will be heading over to SM MOA Arena to ogle at denim- and underwear-clad celebrities and models walking the ramp in Bench for “The Naked Truth
” tonight, a good number will prefer instead to avoid the big crowds and troop to Midas Hotel and Casino to watch Miss Casino Filipino 2014
. Thirty young and beautiful Filipinas representing different CF centers all over the country are vying for the crown that comes with a half a million pesos in cash prize. Among them, I am specifically giving my good luck wishes to the six (6) contestants below. I would be happy to see one of them win, especially former Binibini Emma Mary Tiglao.
Emma Mary Tiglao and Rogelie Catacutan
Agatha Lei Romero and Maria Fatima Al-Sowyed
Ivy Meerry Enriquez and Rosemary Turner
Miss Casino Filipino 2014 may not be as prestigious as the other national beauty pageants, but nobody can contest that it is one of the most generous in prizes. Aside from the top finisher with a cash bounty of PhP500,000, the four (4) runners-up will not come home empty-handed. They will receive PhP400,000. Php300,000, Php200,000 and Php100,000, depending on the final rank. Not bad. ;-)
Janicel Lubina (reigning Miss Scuba Philippines) is now Miss Bikini Philippines 2013.

Something must really be about water or water-related places/activities that brings good luck to Janicel Lubina. Last year, she was crowned Miss Scuba Philippines. This year, she continues the conquest by succeeding Abbygale Monderin as the new Miss Bikini Philippines. As a result, she will represent the country once more in either Miss Bikini International (in China) or Miss Bikini World (in Europe). And if all goes well, she might even do better than duplicate her runner-up placement in Miss Scuba International 2012. So I say, send her to Europe where her type of beauty will glow and be noticed even more.
Just a thought…would Janicel have been just as successful with the water-celebrating Miss Philippines Earth 2013? ;-)
Anyways, Congratulations to all the winners! :-D
