What are the chances of Hannah Sison, Parul Shah and Pia Wurtzbach competing against each other once more in Bb. Pilipinas 2014? (Photo credit: Melvin Sia/OPMB Worldwide)
Actually, the showdown of these three lovely ladies is quite anticipated. We already know that Hannah Sison and Parul Shah are deep in training with KF. Pia Wurtzbach, on the other hand, was expected to resurface in Bb. Pilipinas 2014 right after getting the 1st Runner-Up position during last April’s national finals. And I’m pretty sure BPCI (with the full blessings of A&Q) will field her once more.
How will you assign titles should they be the last ones standing? 😉

I had to blog this photo because it is heartwarming to see Shamcey Supsup-Lee’s closest friends from Miss Universe 2011 coming over for her wedding – Miss Korea Universe 2011 Sora Chong and Miss Singapore Universe 2011 Valerie Lim.
Back in Sao Paulo, Sora was Shamcey’s roommate. They shared almost a month of friendship and non-stop bonding that has delightfully extended beyond the competition and up to now that she has become a must-attendee in her pal’s grand wedding.
Valerie, on the other hand, became Shamcey’s other very close Asian competitor in the said edition of the pageant. In fact, she was also present during the engagement party last year.
This is valid proof that pageant friendships do last. 🙂

Lovely bride Shamcey!

Familiar faces among the guests
It’s now official! Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2011 and Miss Universe 2011 3rd Runner-Up has already tied the knot with dashing Lloyd T. Lee. She was the picture of blissful radiance wearing a heavenly Cherry Veric creation (hair and make-up by Albert Kurniawan) as she walked down the aisle to marry the man of her dreams. It was reported that tears started to flow when the two exchanged their vows, but moreso when they gave a touching tribute to their parents.
From this blogger, my warmest congratulations to the newly-married couple. May you have the good life and may your children grow up to be the best that you want them to be. 🙂
So many beautiful guests. Can you name all of them?

Atty. Nad Bronce (right) and Arnold Mercado take the ladies’ Q&A very seriously.
At Aces & Queens, Atty. Nad Bronce and Arnold Mercado are in-charge of developing the ladies’ ability to handle interviews and on-the-spot Question-and-Answer. They are lectured as a group first. Afterwards, the specific communication peculiarities of each individual are addressed to see how they can be improved. This includes voice modulation, body language, eye contact and facial expression.
And you must think that giving a reply is as easy as making a swimsuit pose. It can be a lot harder. But for the more expressive and lively speakers among the group, a good part of the objective has already been achieved.
Who among the ladies above will prove to be engaging conversationalists? We shall soon find out.

She is no Bb. Pilipinas contender. But she is making the Philippines proud in The X-Factor Israel.
Bring it on, Rose Fontanes!
Which of the food items above do you love to eat?
A&Q's John Cuay
The other day, Aces & Queens’ Resident Gym Trainer and Fitness/Nutrition Coach John Cuay posted the list of food choices above containing negative-zero calorie. Of course, our prospective beauty queens will really dig deep into their inner strength to muster all the discipline to eat healthy and keep trim for the sake of beauty and well-being.
How about you, dear readers? Do you think you can keep pace with the ladies and start the New Year with better food options? I know I can’t commit to it most of the time, but starting somewhere should make me more conscious of what I eat. Imagine my surprise when I did not gain so much weight during the foodie holidays. That should motivate me to get to my ideal 150lbs. (I weigh 158 as of the moment). 😉
Ridiculously healthy snacks according to John
Let me start with my favorites: honeydew, watermelon, tomatoes, asparagus and strawberries. 🙂
Another post from John.
Event Planner Ghune Katigbak (left) is credited for having recommended Ariella Arida to A&Q.
When Ariella Arida was crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2013, one of the first few individuals Jonas Gaffud thanked was Events Planner Ghune Katigbak who scouted/saw the gem in the Alaminos beauty and promptly referred her to Aces & Queens. And the rest, as the saying goes, is history.
So will Ghune try to extend his lucky streak and recommend another undiscovered Binibini to the beauty camp? While it is not within his specialization to actually do the transformation of beautiful girls to gorgeous beauty candidates, he surely has the eye for spotting ones who are likely to hold a good future in pageantry.
Who could be his muse for 2014? 😉
