  1. I clicked this blog for I thought it is recent but happy to read it anyway. Nice stats, Mr. Norman. You and your blog deserve the accolades for you have been sharing a variety of articles all worthy to read. Above all it is very informative. Congratulations.

    Congratulations also to Mr. Dexter. You are the undisputed god of colorful and picturesque comments. You have earned a lot of fans and foes for being outspoken and witty. Stay true to yourself always for it is that quality in you that shines. To the rest of the honor roll keep this blog healthy and fun.

  2. Dexter, u r the man. You are MUP in Norman’s eyes. Maybe I’ll make the list soon:).
    Congrats Norman. I hope u become our country’s Perez Hilton ( of course minus all the legal troubles)

  3. Congratulations, Tito Norms, and thank you for the inclusion! It is very humbling to be mentioned by the brilliant blogger who rekindled my interest in beauty pageants. May you continue to arouse our curiousity. Here’s wishing for your continued success. Happy New Year!

  4. Thank you Norman for the acknowledgement !!! We just rang the New Year here in Los Angeles/Pasadena area and I could feel that you will continue to be one of the best in the field of blogging. Wishing you more success this 2014 and that the excellence of the Filipino beauty in the international pageantry will continue to prevail as well. Mabuhay!

  5. Congratulation and Happy New Year Norman! Honestly yu always make my day with your topics! This positivity makes a different! God bless yu, you are Madiba(Mandela) in a pageantry world!

  6. Salamat naman Kuya Norms for bestowing me one of the top 6 year ender top commenter, parang miss world and or miss universe ang peg, I’m proud na maka level dexter,closer2fame,sheena,basil and queen_b…..Salamat po!

    • Your the Top 6 placement out of Millions of viewers of this Blog! Nalampasan mo pa si Angeli Delos Reyes sa Miss Earth at si Cindy Miranda sa MTQI! You also deserve a crown. hihihi ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Lavinia, congrats. Again you have proven that a contra- vida can be a vida to:)

  7. Bubuntot din ako rito, Norms. I’ve never been acknowledged by a blogger, and thanks for the shout-out! Your blog IS different. You allow the hollerings, the banterings, the diatribes, and yes, the catfights. All are welcome–young, old, sane, and mga baliw din. There are such thought-provoking, informative, and witty comments that can pull me in, but it’s really the rantings of those who write and speak in a lingua franca, which pose the most challenges and/or confusion for me. (I’ve tried so hard to read through Basil’s postings only to become more confused by the end of reading them, but even Basil and so many others add spice and color to your blog site.) Happy New Year to you, to all whom I’ve probably offended at one time or another here, to those I understand, and most especially, to those whom I do not (yes, Happy New Year to you, Basil). We probably represent the gamut of demographics, backgrounds, and ages here, and I think that’s what gives your blog site validation, longevity, and interest…not to mention that you’re a darned good blogger, Norms. Your readership is a great asset, but it takes an exceptional writer/blogger to sustain that readership, and you are that. You might think I’m just kissing your hiney because of your shout-out, but all chiding aside…my hats off to you now and always, Norms!

    • Thank you for the shower of positive words, Mrs. AJ. It ain’t easy maintaining a blog but the intangible rewards make it all worthwhile. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Wow I’m so elated with my name being mentioned here. Parang I want to use my real name para naman maambunan ako ng kasikatan ni Sir Norms! Hahaha!!!

    I just wish that silent fans out there should join all of us in commenting para naman mas masaya…sa totoo lang nakakaenjoy din ung mga nega basta do it for fun wag naman mag overboard masyado otherwise i find it entertaining talaga! It just goes to show that reactors talaga have their own views and distinct personality.

    Medyo worried lang ako until now what Sir Norman once said na parang he’d retire na once a Pinay won the 3rd MU…parang i’ll pray na wag manalo (echos!)

    Cheers to another exciting year here in Norman’s Blog! Maligayang Pasko at Manigong Bagong Taon po sa ating lahat!

    • The retirement thingy is still up in the air, ram. Let’s just cross the bridge once the Diamond Nexus Lab crown lands our next rep’s beautiful head. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Tomohhhhh!!!! 1001% support!!!

      Si Tito Norms mag RERETIRE pag nanalo uli tayo ng Miss Universe?! I DOUBT!!!! If I know, mas gaganahan pa sya mag blog ng todo or worse, hindi lang bagong beauty camp itatag nya.. baka Pageant University pa!!!! WAHAHAHA!!!! ๐Ÿ˜.. I totally need an intervention right now.. LOL…

  9. By far one of the best things that happened to me this year was when I stumbled on to this site. I don’t even remember how I got here but it was a blessing. At last I found a site without all the so-called gods and goddess of pageant commentaries. At this respite of a blog site were honest, down to earth bloggers lead by an outstanding author, creator, and understanding blog host. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this great family. One more thing… dearest Norman, you more than deserve any and all accolades that come your way! Love to you…

  10. thank you for the mention Sir Norman! congratulations and wish you all the best for 2014! May God Bless you always ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Sa 2014 Tito Norms sali mo ako sa list mo ha? I am reading your blogs everyday since I discovered it para ko na siyang newspaper na kailangan basahib everyday. Though, I am not a regularly posting comments still todo support ako. Pati mga kasama ko sa work nagbabasa na rin nang blogs mo. Hahaha a happy new year to you and to all your fans – all the way from Qatar!

  12. โ˜ฎ PEACEโœŒ

    I am so happy with the stats! A tremendously great number only proving that NORMAN’s BLOG is, in fact, NUMERO UNO!!! Certainly your hard work evidently paid off, Norman.

    OH MOLLY GUACAMOLE!!! I didn’t know I am your top commenter. Jeez, if my family finds out they’ll lock me in a cuckoo’s nest with no access to Internet. LOL. It’s unbelievable that I surpassed Closer2Fame and Sheena, two co-readers I consider my best blog friends.

    Recently, I’ve been enjoying exchanging views with you because we already know each other eye-to-eye. The same goes to C2F, Sheena, Lavinia, Felipe Roberto and Benjie. Without you guys and gals, I’d be practically just reading comments & rants and watching the videos mostly shared by HUNK5525. YOU ALL make my life more colourful!!!

    To those who just can’t stand my presence here, forgive me but I am staying. My views may not be as comprehensive as most of you but I know I make a lot of sense. And if you don’t like what I say because I think far out, simply skip them. PERIOD.

    My sincerest thanks to everyone who is responsible to making this blog a healthy melting pot of opinions and informations specifically in terms of beauty pageantry. Mabuhay!!!


    • @ Dexter…you are deserving of the top spot, bro! I can feel your sincerity, your good-will, your passion to uphold what is beautiful, your kindness. You are top of the few bloggers who have a heart to understand other’s people idiosyncrasies…including my own…and for that I appreciate you greatly. You are the only person, aside from Kuya Norman, that I have such a high regard in this Blog…you have mellowed/tamed me, in fact. Thanks and Congratulations! More blessings to you this New Year!

      • Simple, Benjie. I was taught to appreciate even the ugliest things. And true, never ever judge anything on the outside as the truest beauty is always within. Cheers, my friend!

      • Cheers, Dexter! And, by the way, I admire your being creative (visually) in expressing your thoughts. I’m sure I will be seeing a lot of your awesome lay-outs…Cheers again!

  13. Thank you Norman. It’s an honor for me to be acknowledged by one of the best bloggers in town. I’m touched and yes, I feel like crying. You know I rarely post comments to speak my mind but my day won’t be complete without browsing your blog. It’s like a daily (sometimes hourly) habit to check your blog for new updates. Thank you for feeding our hunger for information and for your undying passion. It’s a blessing in disguise that we did not win the Miss Universe crown this year (so hindi ka pag maglie-low sa blogging mo). Haha

    Happy New Year and all the best for more (blogging) years to come! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Touched…honored…humbled…what a fine gift from you Kuya Norman to wrap-up my year! My sincerest gratitude for your super-kindness! Honestly, I feel I don’t deserve a space…but I know, your golden heart would not withhold something that can bring joy to others…even to the undeserving. Thanking you ad infinitum……..

  15. An amazing 2013 indeed and undoubtedly 2014 will be bigger than ever! Thank you Tito Norms for acknowledging my “contribution” in being part of your informative, exhaustive, and massive blog. Also, I give my hats off to your readers and loyal followers whose views and opinions enrich my knowledge of and further fuel my passion for beauty pageants. As an ex-beauty queen myself (haha) I feel this is where I really belong.

    Of course without you Tito Norms, we are nothing, nada, zilch. My sincere gratitude to you for all your hard work, dedication, perseverance, patience, and strength to carry on your duty. Tinalo mo pa si Ariella. Haha.

    Here’s to a fabulous 2014 for all of us! Love you all!

  16. Wow, I’m the Salutatorian of this Blog!

    Ganun pala ako ka addict mag comment dito?!…

    Congrats Dex for being this year’s Valedictorian
    And to Sheena for being the 1st honorable mention… magsama-sama tayo lahat sa pageant rehab! Wahahaha!!!!!

    Thank you principal Norms for allowing my comments to be seen by millions and your unparalled passion for pageantry…

    To all the beauty queen alumnis, potentials, trainors, critics, bashers, haters, bitters, freshmans, aspirants, and repeaters…

    To my thumb uppers and thumb downers…

    And to all ye’ commoners…


    • You certainly are my idol in this blog, C2F. You actually deserve not just a GOLD but a CROWN!

      Cheers and more for 2014!!!

      • Mas Idol kita!.. I’m only a first runner up to you.. Comments mo nga me kasama pang Edited pics and links.. dapat ikaw or si Hunk5525 manalo ng MultiMedia award..

  17. A gazillion thanks and congratulations to you Norman and your blog ! Here’s wishing you the best of 2014. May you reap more success in everything you do and may God bless you always ! Love ya much ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy New Year everyone !
