  1. Bud ? Two things:
    Ara’s belly- I didn’t even notice this then, I was more interested to know then what Pia is training for when you mentioned “the five are in the middle of their training”. Is this for Pia’s preparation for BBP 2014 ?
    I cant turn a blind eye on one crux of this post which is Ara’s belly and lots of your readers noticed. “if a picture paints a thousand words, then why cant I paint this one”. Not to fuel the discussion anymore but I can only hope that her camp released this photo by mistake or there is a subliminal message to the photo that will surprise everyone coming Miss Universe. For now, I will go with the latter just like Janine’s transformation.

    The “black dress” site – now we know that this is not Ara. I hope that it was an honest mistake or could be over zealousness. On this one I’d go with the latter.

    Dang ! I hope Ara will be like the girl in black dress just in time for Miss Universe. Can you imagine bud ? Miss Universe and Miss World 2013 is Philippines!

    LIVE ! from Crocus City Hall Moscow, Russia the 2013 Miss Universe !

    • C, it is part of Pia’s contract to train so that she can replace anyone in the unlikely event that one of the winners fail to represent us abroad. πŸ˜‰

  2. Yes. It’s disappointing that some of Ara’s supporters would resort to outright LIES and point to someone’s else’s photo as Ara’s just so they could say she’s “IMPROVED” daw, or that issues with Ara’s FAT belly have been resolved na daw. Yeah, right.

    The REAL photos of Ara above says it all. She looks like she’s swallowed a melon, a whole one! Nag pink shirt pa!!! Why? To make it more obvious??? LOL! Pandak na nga, taba pa. Tapos she has her eye bags. And her comm skills? What comm skills?! Barraza gown na lang ang kulang noh? CLAPPER to the max talaga!

  3. SO CAN SOMEONE FIGURE OUT WHY AFTER 4 MONTHS OF TRAINING ARA’S TUMMY STILL LOOKS LIKE SHE ATE SEVERAL PLATEFULS AT AN ALL YOU CAN EAT CHINESE BUFFET???

    • She could gamble on a one-piece swimsuit like the one she wore in the Bb. Pilipinas press presentation. It showed her shapely legs. And avoid poses that exposes the tummy like when she arched her back during the SS round of the finals night.

  4. So Miss Tourism Queen International has been cancelled. YET AGAIN! That’s 2 years in a row. That’s 3 cancellations in the past 4 years. I feel bad for Katrina and Cindy. BPCI should drop the franchise or else it will end up with more wasted beauties.

      • Yeah, to think Cindy put a freeze on her career and had a rift with her parents just so she could compete in Bbp. And for what? For the perpetually cancelled MTQI pageant!? And to make it even worse, Cindy can never again compete in any future Bbp pageant because she’s already won a “title”!!!

        Pia may have been disappointed with her runner-up placement that night, but she should consider herself lucky!

        I hope the BPCI drops and eliminates this useless title forever.

  5. Kuya Norm, if you Google Ara Arida photoshoot teaser and see a picture titled “In Black”, is this something that will be officially released soon along with other photos?

    • I saw that teaser. If officially taken by the approved photographers of BPCI like Raymond Saldana, it could form part of the MUwebsite-bound shots. Otherwise, it’s just to show her progress. πŸ˜‰

      • Sort of answers this whole stomach thing…

      • Oh God… I think I may have opened a line of dialogue that’s once again going to draw fire. Sorry. Not my intent.

        Whether or not it’s an official photo, it is well done and artistic. I hope the rest, if they’re official, are as well done.

      • Sorry to burst your bubble, but the photo of the girl in black is no other than KYLIE VERSOZA.

      • @closer: search google images: “kylie versoza black” and that photograph by Edric Chen will turn up. It’s been on Tumbler for a while, part of Edric’s and Kylie’s portfolio.

      • @Yurra Hogg

        Oh your right.. it is Kylie.. hmmm… Back to eating pineapples then!

  6. Look! Ara has a round fat belly!
    And these are her best photos so far!!
    i lab her! dots por shoor!!!
    ajajajajajaja!!!!

      • STFU: oh shet! and U R worse than me! IN ALL ACCOUNTS. and that should settle it U asshole! ajajajajajajajajaja!!!!

    • hanep ka den makapangasar berting ha. pasok na pasok sa apdo.. hehehe. tuloy mo lang yan bata.
      Norman saya pala dito, bat ngayon mo lang ako inimbitahan πŸ™‚

      • ang lumanay mo pang magsalita. Taas siguro pinag-aralan mo ano Norman? halata naman e. πŸ˜‰ , kindat yan ng paghanga ha Norman, hindi kita nilalande, me allowance pa ako hanggang next week ..LOL !
        natutuwa ako ke berting, lakas makapangasar, sarap makainuman, lasingin at gawing pulutan.

      • @Ninang Norms,

        Just out of the blue ay nakakita ako ng piano at naalala kita.
        Kung makikita kitang nagpa-piano, at kung hindi ko alam na ikaw ang ninang ko, ay wagas kong iisipin na ikaw si Ryan Cayabyab.
        Baka naman separated kayo at birth Ninang, ask your mother Ninang.
        Everyone of us has a secret, at baka iyun na nga ang malaking sikreto ng mudrocks mo Ninang.
        At pag na-confirm na nga na magsister kayo ni Ryan ay baka masabi mo sa kanya ang linyang, ” Mundo Mo’y Akin”.Bwahaha.

        Ryan Cayabyab, 69, Malaybalay, Bataan!

      • Basil, I look more like Ping Lacson in person daw. Although I love singing ‘Kailan’ by Ryan Cayabyab. πŸ˜‰

  7. Ara’s 2nd pic on the waist has still long way to go! Keep on doing your abdominal exercises.

  8. malaki talaga tyan ni Ara at hindi puson yan, tyan yan. Magpost ba naman ng picture na nakabukol ang tyan pagpipistahn ito ng mga kalaban nya sa Miss U !!! Tatlong buwan ng manalo sya ay ganito ang tyan nya ????? di bale meron pa syang tatlong buwan bago sya lumipad ng Russia.

    O, yong mga Ara fans, bago mang-okray, tignan muna ang picture hindi yong mga puro excuses na “di bale me inimprove naman sa mukha” o di kaya “basta maganda pa din sya” “basta Ara all the way” “Ara FTW” ….. baka sobra kayong Ara fanatic ay maging ARA WTF !!! LOL !!!

    Mga handlers ni Ara hinay hinay sa pagpapalabas ng mga pics, Usisain muna kung magiging postibo ang ilalabas na pics at kung hindi ,buong pilipinas pa naman umaasa sa korona, yayariin kayo ng mga Ara fanatics.

  9. Ara really looks so beautiful here!

    although…. i’ve seen her other recent pictures and I must say she looks better in the others, especially yung mga candid at mga selfie’s niya. shet, what more for november!!

    as for her stomach, talaga bang may problema? o baka it’s on its way to an accentuated set of abs? lol ewan, di naman ako gym buff :))

    • Oo nga, yung stomach na lang ang medyo problema at palaging napapansin ng madlang pipol. Di ba pwedeng gawan ng paraan via Belo? I’m not suggesting surgical kc meron naman na non-invasive body contouring by Low Frequency Ultrasound. Just a suggestion ^_^

      • dapat ngayon ay toned na ang lintek na tyan na yan, maintenance na lang dapat ang kelangan sa next three months hanggang sa MU. Sa September 1 kung malaki pa din yan kelangang tawagin si juandelacruz at kelangan ni gappud ang apat na sandata para pagtatapyasin ang mga tabang yan. E di magiging retokada sya ngayon. Hello Venenzuela ! Laking tawa ni Ouzma,

        Gappud kung nakikinig ka man !! si tagabantay ito ! huwag kang maglabas ng mga ganitong letrato ng kandidata naten !! napi-pik-up ito ni sarangnaya at pwede nyang gamiting panlaban sa mga diwata mo ! sige ka, lalapain ka ng amang-hari.

      • Maybe their sponsors can only give a 1 month free RF treatment. They must be saving it for her last month of stay..

      • kung libre ng isang buwan ang RF treatment na yan at di kayang magbayad ng mga handlers nya at kahit ano mang treatment pa yan e kung balik din naman ng balik ang hinayupak na tyan na yan, antay ka pa sa last month ? ok ka lang dre ? Pano na pag nasa Russia na sya? papa-RF sya don sa gabi bago ang labanan?
        Gappud ! makinig ka! was kang maglalabas ng mga ganitong retrato ng mga diwata ! nakakahiya !

      • @Othil

        I’m just joking about what I said about the 1 month RF.. don’t take it seriously.
        You sound so intense.. LOL.

      • dyok pala yon, sensya ka na dre, hina to sa ingles e, kala ko lang kase desperado ka na ke ara e. hehehe

      • Angry bird si angelo reyes e dami naman ditong nakapansin sa tyan, gusto ko nga si ara e . Norman ganito ba talga dito ? Di bale angelo hindi malake tyan ni ara, seksing seksi nga e, lahat kayong me problema sa tyan ni ara wag namang ganyan, annoying kayo e, o yan ha sinuportahan pa kita. Lab u angelo, lika nga dito kiss na kita. Tsup !

  10. WOW! Ara outdid her court this time! She’s blossoming big time. πŸ™‚

  11. Queen_b are you kidding me? Are you seriously comparing Ara’s body to Cindy Anorexic Miranda? Cindy is so frail looking. It doesn’t look healthy.

    • LOL.. Don’t be mean guys!… I think Cindy is depressed because she won’t be competing at an international pageant this year… Be more sensitive!

      Since you mentioned it, I’m now curious.. Is there such thing as an opposite of anorexic and bulimic where instead of not eating or puking your guts out, you just simply crap a lot? That’s what I need. LOL

  12. Majority of Filipino’s critic as if they are so perfect. I’m Filipino and proud but the way they critic is so negative. Go back to your internet cafe and teleserya’s and be all dramatic over there and go wallow in your own insecurities for a change.

    For those who make negative connotations and make fun of Ara, go and educate yourselves and learn to appreciate that beauty isn’t simple, it’s complex. No human is perfect but that is what makes beauty pageant’s so intriguing. It defines just that. No human is perfect and what makes beauty so apparent here are an individuals flaws and quirks. That to me is what beauty really is. I am not making any direct insinuation to anybody but for those who make fun of people, you act as if you are perfect yet you hide behind a computer screen knowing that you wont be judged simply because you arn’t in the public eye. Ara is absolutely stunning. Win or Lose for MU13 she will definitely make a mark in the beauty pageant world.

    These pictures of her are radiant and refreshing. Her face alone captivates an aura which allures your eyes directly towards her. She needs no explanation as to why she won but for the record she deserves to win the MU13 crown. I hope she does so she can rub it in all your faces and prove you haters wrong. Even if she doesn’t win, she is still far more successful then you will ever amount to. Harsh, but sadly it is true.

    Norman, keep doing what you do best. You definitely know how to stir up people’s interests and logic behind these posts of yours and I am a fan!

    Keep up the good work. =)

    • Where are the haters? All I see are mostly constructive criticisms here. Nobody’s bashing Ara here so chill.

      • look ajay… we all want ara to do well. however some of us are more candid and frank than others. you sound like a petty teenager… whine whine whine. ara cannot improve if we are not honest in our critiques. she doesn’t just need praise but honest thoughtful criticism

      • Tama ka venus, ginagamit mo utak mo kung magrason ka. Hind lang yong para lang me masabi ay banat lang ng banat.

      • That is my point exactly. Your constructive criticism is not constructive. Some comments within this post are demeaning like I said, No direct insinuation. Some of the comments here remind me of vice ganda’s personality, where as your form of constructive criticism is provided with hint of a joke. That would be more in line to patronizing and not constructive at all. Constructive criticism would be,

        “Ara I can see you are rediscovering ways of how to project clearer, however there are certain aspects which you could definitely improve on. You should consult your dietician because it could be multiple factors, water retention, bloating, acidic tempers etc. In the time frame that you have before the MU13 no doubt about that you will be able to conquer all of these issues.”

        You are judging her stomach based on ONE picture. There could be multiple reasons why her stomach looks somewhat large here, For example, she looks like her jeans are being worn up towards her stomach to accomodate to her larger size of a tank top. Have LOGIC behind your reasoning before you give constructive criticism because to me, it sounds like you are judging the situation quickly as opposed to getting your facts placed out on the table.

        And I am chill Sheena, lol don’t get all defensive now. See how it feels? I find it ironic that people claim to be helping, when really, they are only making matters worse for themselves by accepting that.. they don’t know how to constructively critique.

      • @Ajay

        Bro, wag mo masyadong damdamin and take things with a grain of salt. Each of us may have our own positive or negative opinions but majority of us are all commenting for the spirit of fun. Don’t worry about those people who bashes Ara or anyone else because in effect, their also one of the reasons why these public figures are becoming more famous. As much as you want to change the world, there will always be lovers and haters. I suggest that you continue being the supportive person that you are. Be yourself in any way you can without stepping on other people’s toes and you will enjoy life to the fullest! πŸ˜€

  13. baseD on the pics eto Lng masasabi ko sa mGa detractors ni Ara: “Oh anu kaU ngayOn, natameme kaU noh??”..
    ☺β™ͺβ™ͺβ™ͺ

  14. yey! im loving this new look of ara. its not that so exotic look but a toned-down one. its like the exotic beauty merges with a sweet and warm face, (i believe that sweet face is the trend nowadays, IMHO). i wish, that her interview skills are improving πŸ˜‰

    BTW, kuya norman, i love you for being always updated

  15. Wow Ara is looking better and better πŸ™‚ I’m liking the results of all her hard work…. Except for one thing… May work harder for those abs- medyoau angles kasi na malaki ang mid section nya

  16. Kung di sumali ang mga ito sa BbP or di nanalo tapos nasalubong ko sa EDSA, i would say the ff:

    Mutya: hmmm, magandang katulong ito..swerte ni Kuya or driver na si Dodong. Yan ang vibes nya sa akin kahit anong bihis at make up nya….

    Cindy: ay, si ate nagmamadali, mahuhuli na ata sa trabaho..wearing her ill-fitted blue SM uniform and cheap shoes.

    Bea: ay inglesera, i can’t work out her accent..hmmm balik bayan? Canada? Really? Kala ko nag-aaral mag Ingles sa PUP..

    Pia: ay mistisa baka artisa…artista ba talaga yan? Taga saan? Anong pelikula…hmmm okey, artista siguro kamag-anak ata ni Babalu!

    Ara: relax ate, you seems so uncomfortable baka matae ka..be spontaneous. Don’t try to please everyone. Tao din kami na mababaho ang tae. Hayan tuloy nahulog ang mga paninda mong ilalako sa Libertad..

    • Your just sour bitch. If Iknow poorita ka lang. Your sour because your a looser!

    • … ang corny naman…. If you are trying to immitate Basil, waley ang effort mo kasi sya na ang may hawak ng trono na echoserang baklitang nagpapasaya ng mga comments nya, in short “be original!” ang corny talaga haist..

    • at kelangan pang imention ang PUP school??? haller, di ako graduate but ive known some friends who worked there and you dont have any idea how they struggle to have a decent education with a very cheap yet high standard of education! makapanglait ka ha wagas! ikaw na nagaral sa ateneo siguro pero ang ugali mo at panlalait mo mas masaklap pa sa college of estero! echoserang talangka ka!

  17. Here we go… Ara looks improved in the first 2 pics but the hair still needs work.Her eyes are her best assets and they are making her stand out a little more.
    In the third pic they all look rough and Ara looks like she had a big lunch.
    I still don’t get Pia. Her face is just not proportioned right. She looks perpetually constipated. She has very white skin though… maybe tnhat’s why pinoys like her. I’ll never get it.
    Also the clothes are awfully cheap.

    • Venus, I reckon it is a stomach issue. I can see she works hard to achieve a tond body, but the tummy just don’t seem to flatten. I am thinking she consult her dietician. Am not a specialist in the medical field, but am thinking it is something in the food she eats, maybe an irritated stomach lining.

      But we always wants the best for Ara. She is glowing more and more.

    • Ok.. We’re talking about the Binibinis again so “galit galit muna”.

      For Ara – Maybe she should only eat frequent small meals high in fiber like rolled oats for breakfast.. and 2-3 bites of pineapple core every 2 hours.. maybe that will squeeze out the gunk in her tummy with out stretching her intestines too much but her face and decolletage is still more than gorgeous!

      For Pia – her constipated look is caused by the slight asymmetry of her bite and so I think she should consult with an aesthetic orthodontist.

      • Pineapple core? You mean the middle part of the fruit? Isn’t it the part of the pineapple where a certain enzyme that causes mouth irritation is concentrated?

      • @ Johnny

        Yes, exactly! Bromelain is the active ingredient. 6 months of dietary bromelain from pineapple stem or from fresh juice decreased the severity of colonic inflammation and reduced the number of cancerous lesions in the colon.

      • @closertofame

        Thanks for the info. They say it (pineapple) also sweetens the c*m.

      • @closer: wink, wink, (or is it wank, wank?). dearie, exactly how do you know pineapple sweetens c*m? And how many taste tests did you try out before you ‘came’ to this sweet conclusion? πŸ™‚

      • @Miss Uranus

        My parents are highly conservative and they read this BLOG too..
        so I’l just keep those details to myself.. LOL
        All I can say is that it works for everyone.. It can flavor ALL natural love juices. *wink*

        Hmmmm.. Wait, I’m not sure if you have any of that though.. LOL
        You might be an exception.. hehehe πŸ˜€

  18. Ninang,
    Can you please feature the newly-crowned Miss Dominican Republic.
    She’s a supernova, believe me, Yareetza just surpassed the high bars set by the frontrunners.
    And now her bars are as high as the Burj Khalifa.
    OMG, Israel will be having a hard time defeating this glamazon.
    Dominican Republic is back!

  19. Ara’s transformation is clearly evident here. Hopefully she is ready to conquer the universe in november. Keep up the good work !

  20. Mutya – ipinanganak na maganda, lumaking maganda, nagdalagang maganda., babaeng tahimik pero kabugera.

    Pia-come to mama mga papa, hep hep hep, pa-check muna ng savings account.

    Bea-magpaganda kayo ng magpaganda, namnamin nyo ang isang taon, dahil pagkatpos ng 2013, itutumba ko kayong lahat.

    Ara- hmmm sarap lumapang, laki na tuloy ng tyan ko, inay..luto na ba yun kanin? Luto na anak, ano ba gusto mong ulam? inay, kanin lang po, nothing but kanin, favorite ko po ang kanin.

    Cindy- ang payat ko na, tao pa ba ko?

  21. Now thats what I’ve talking about from the very beginning!..
    Ara’s beauty now stands out beside these gorgeous ladies. πŸ™‚

  22. These are THE BEST pictures of Ara so far!!! She is absolutely beautiful!!! And it’s only August… This diamond in the rough is being polished and starting to shine bright. Wow!
