  1. Isang napakagandang proyekto kung pakakaisipin, naniniwala ako sa kakayahan at kahalaman ni Ka Rolan Jota dahil nakita ng dalawang mata ko kung paano inalalayan ang miss young international at ito ang naging dahilan kung bakit 60 country directors ang mga nag usap matapos na makauwi ang 23 kandidata na nagsabing ” they feel as a queen during their stay in the phil. sa tulong at suporta ng mga local goverment officials dahil nga sa programa sa radyo at kolumnista ng ibang pahayagan at publisher ng on the spot nabuo ang phil.world beauty festival na naka registro sa SEC bilang organizer ng 1st world beauty festival queen na ang original host ay sa pamumuno ni Mr. Jota , thypoon ONDOY ang dahilan ng postponement na humiling ang bansang trinidad tobago na sa kanila na lang gawin….nagkaroon ng hindi pagkakaunawahan ang mga inilagay na board of trustees dahil sa ? pero ito ay naka handang ituloy matapos lang ang isang pagpupulong ng Dept. of Tourism at ng mga country directors by 2011 antabayanan natin ang isa sa pinakamagandang promotion ng ating bansa at pagbibigay ng pagpapahalaga ng mga beauties of the World !!! watch !!!

  2. this pageant seems like a joke.. now they’re saying it’s been rescheduled for March 2010. The president Dr. Virginia Teodosio and another staff member Clarinda/Karen Catimpo have also left. There’s something already wrong with this pageant and it hasnt even started.

    • Is that right? I was wondering why there was no news at all about the local and international pageant last month. Could there be funding problems?

      Anyways, thanks for visiting my blog!

  3. By “hindi kakumpetensya”, I meant maaaring makipagtulungan sa ibang pageant at hindi kalaban. I didn’t mean to make buhat the sariling bangko, or to classify the other pageants. In fact, we look forward to forging cordial business relationship with the others if given a chance. = )

    • Your comments are noted, Hilda. I’m sure there will eventually be a cordial relationship with other pageant organizers…hopefully that is. I’d be glad to get your full kit so I can blog about it more regularly. Give me your email address so that I can privately send my landline and other particulars. Thanks! 😉

  4. Sinadya na mag-overlap ang sked ng PFQ sa WFQ para ma-highlight ng todo ang ating kultura sa mga kandidata mula sa ibang bansa. So imbes na ang welcoming party sa airport ay ang reigning Philippine Festival Queen, magiging lahat ng mga contestants ng PFQ (na pawang reigning beauty queens naman ng kanilang lugar) magkakaroon ng tsansang ipagmalaki ang local culture nila sa pagdating ng mga international contestants beginning Nov. 20.

    Gaya ng sinasabi namin, iba ang konsepto ng PFQ at WFQ. Di lamang ito contest ng ganda, wit, at fitness, kundi palistuhan ng kaalaman sa kanilang kultura at festivals. Although parehong beauty pageant, ang PFQ ay maituturing na hindi kakumpetensya ng Miss Philippines, Bb. Pilipinas, Mutya ng Pilipinas, o Miss Earth Philippines. On the other hand, ang WFQ naman ay di rin kakumpetensya ng Miss World, Miss Earth, Miss Universe, Miss International, at Miss TQI. Originally, we were scheduled Oct. 4 – 24, pero nang malaman namin na makakasabay ang Miss Earth (pareho ng original schedule), inilipat namin ng Nov. 8-22. Nang malaman ulit namin na Nov. 22 pala ang Miss Earth coronation, napagkasunduan ng Board na ilipat ulit ang finals date ng WFQ, this time, Dec. 8 na.

    I hope you find this information is helpful. I can send you a full kit and the promotional photos of the initial set of international delegates if you need them. You may also check http://www.worldfestivalqueen.wordpress.com, but the images there are low res, but they are available there anyway. Our official website will be uploaded hopefully by Monday next week.

  5. Hi – I would just like to add that the Phil Festival Queen coronation will be held on Nov. 25, 2009 at the Marikina Convention Center, where all the international candidates will attend (yes, because they will arrive Nov. 20 or 21). The Phil. representative will not be in the Best in Filipiniana competition (Nov. 23, FFCCCIII Bldg., Binondo, 6pm) which is partida, because if she wins, baka isipin ng ibang kandidata na partial ang prelim judges. Anyway, this special award has no bearing naman sa overall score.

    Right now we have already 54 country directors who will send candidates from the following countries (those enclosed in parenthesis are the names of their official candidates / entries sent by their respective country directors): ARGENTINA, ARUBA (Antonella Cipriani), ARMENIA, AUSTRALIA (Kelly Louise Maguire), BAHAMAS (Amanda Appleyard), BELGIUM, BOTSWANA, CAMEROON, CANADA, CHILE, CHINA, COLOMBIA (Karen Arroyo), CUBA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, EGYPT, ENGLAND, GERMANY, GHANA, GUAM, GUATEMALA, HAITI, HOLLAND (Milou Verhoeks), HONDURAS, HONG KONG, IRELAND, KOREA, LIBERIA, LUXEMBOURG, MACAU, MALAWI, MEXICO, MONGOLIA, NETHERLANDS, NEW ZEALAND, NIGERIA, NIUE ISLAND (Leah Anne Ridding), PAKISTAN, PANAMA, PERU (Alejandra Pezet), PHILIPPINES, PUERTO RICO (Jennifer Cardona), SCOTLAND, SINGAPORE, SOUTH AFRICA, SPAIN, SWITZERLAND, TAIWAN, THAILAND, TONGA, TRINIDAD & TOBAGO, USA (Cynthia Sylvia), VENEZUELA (Vanessa Martez), VIETNAM, and WALES.

    Thank you so much for your blogs on Phil. Festival Queen and World Festival Queen, they are very helpful. Prospective contestants for the Phil. Festival Queen have been sending us e-mail inquiries. I would just like to add that contestants for the PFQ should be a reigning local queen from the town/city/province that she represents. That way, the LGU will support her all the way on this contest, and the festivals and culture of her hometown will be promoted by means of the trade fair exhibit prior to the PFQ coronation. As per our Sept. 21 Board Meeting, the PFQ will be held November 18 to Nov. 25. Sinadya na mag-overlap ang sked ng PFQ sa WFQ

    • You’re welcome, Hilda! Glad to be of help to the pageant your group is organizing. Do send me any other updates you might have within the next month or two. 😉
