From among the thirty (30) Official Candidates of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2011, I took the liberty of coming up with a list of my personal choices for the three (or four) crowns at stake. There is a handful of promising ladies in this batch, maybe not to the level of Binibining Pilipinas just yet but will suffice for the competitions they will be fielded in.
Top of my head right now is to see Maria Bergensen (representative of the Filipino Community in Norway) wearing the Philippine sash in Miss Intercontinental. Meanwhile, I would select Bea Rose Santiago (Filipino Community in Canada) to be Mutya-Overseas Communities and possibly be qualified for the Top Model of the World contest. As for Miss Asia-Pacific International (if ever there will be one), Bernadette Lou Faundo (Zamboanga) could be given serious consideration. Lastly, Abbygale Monderin (Caloocan) is my pick for Mutya-Miss Tourism International.
Coronation night will be on December 2, 2011 with Puerto Princesa, Palawan as host.
What do you think, dear readers? 🙂
