Go find Laura’s billboard along EDSA
If you happen to be passing along EDSA and chanced upon this billboard of Folded & Hung with the huge photo of a gorgeous girl getting your attention, then that’s Laura Lehmann alright, our dear Bb. Pilipinas 2014 1st Runner-Up who is doing the clothing brand’s Disney line.
Of course, we have been constantly egging her to rejoin Bb. Pilipinas. And hopefully, the request won’t come to naught come 2017. She will be really prepared by then.
In the meantime, watch this video of Laura taken at The Farm in Masinloc. She remains always beautiful and crown-worthy.😉

Tomorrow at the B Hotel in Quezon City, the Final Screening of Miss World Philippines 2016 will be underway. So I am encouraging the beautiful Filipinas out there to sign up and relish the experience of taking part in a national beauty pageant that will seek our representative to the next Miss World happening in Washington DC, USA just shortly before Christmas this year (or December 20 to be exact).
We all know by now that there were only eight (8) joiners during the General Screening so I hope that the other camps and talent handlers will field in their entries. It really doesn’t help our pageant industry to have major providers skipping on this particular search because there needs to be unity, regardless of the reason/s.
So see you at the Final Screening!🙂

If you’re a child of the 80s, chances are that you may have some degree of familiarity with singer Emma Cordero who used to perform in hotel and intimate concert lounges while getting stints to extend her professional singing talents in the Land of the Rising Sun. She has actually released quite a number of records during the peak of her career.
Right now, she is all set to venture into another facet of her colorful life as an active civic leader (she is devoted to children and young women who are victims of home violence in the country and in the region) and performer. Appointed as Mrs. Southwest Asia Philippines 2016, she will represent the country in Mrs. Universe 2016 in Guangzhou, China starting August 29 till the first week of September.

Good luck, Emma Cordero!
And if you think that Emma will rest on her laurels after the pageant in Guangzhou, not at all. Win or not, she is scheduled for a long list of shows and concerts abroad (see list below). This she does in order to further her personal charities and become an Ambassadress of Goodwill for poor children in her outreach programs.
Emma’s activities for the rest of the year
Good luck in all worthy endeavors, Mrs Southwest Asia Philippines 2016. And bring us honor in Mrs Universr 2016!🙂
Today, I will be leaving for Lucena, Quezon to participate as a judge for the province’s Niyogyugan 2016 Festival. But no, I won’t be part of the panel to select the winner of this year’s Bb. Niyogyugan search as I have been invited by the Provincial Government to take part in the assessment of the different booths plus the Grand Parade and Street Showdown Celebration that will end the festivities with a big bang.
And so, I am free to choose my favorites from among the ladies vying for the crown. And top of my head would be a three-way battle for the crown among the bets of Candelaria, Sariaya and Lucena City – Ma. Athisa Manalo, Aubrey Macalalad and Julie Ann Gil respectively. I am almost certain that one of them would take home the title for their municipalities.
But wait, there are potential spoilers waiting in the wings. The entries of Pagbilao (Nicole Kristel Losloso), Gumaca (Ebeth Jasmine Belen) and Quezon (Ellen Otalla) could also figure out well. So as they say, may the best girl (or Quezonian) win!
I intend to enjoy the culminating activities so if you’re in Lucena, see you there!😀
Five of our Bb. Pilipinas 2016 Queens presented themselves at the Philippine Retailers Association Expo at the SMX Convention Center for The Araneta Center. Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental Jennifer Hammond, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International Nicole Cordoves, Bb. Pilipinas Globe Nichole Manalo, 1st Runner Up Angelica Alita and 2nd Runner Up Jehza Huelar lent special glitters to the booth of Araneta Center and easily drew crowds with their mere presence.
Where could the other Queens be? I missed Maxine, Kylie and Joanna in this event yesterday.😉
