  1. Best of luck for the inaugural search of Ms. Grand Phils Mr. John dela Vega. Yan kasi problema sa iba panay reklamo sa venue e di naman kasi ganun kadali ang mag organize ng national at international pageants dahil maraming dapat ikonsidera. I hope maliwanagan ang iba sa explanation ni JDV.

  2. Although Mr. Dela Vega did not owe anyone an explanation, especially some deranged internet bully – I am glad he did reply back, giving information about Miss Grand Philipines – thus winning countless fans from this site, who are silently reading and enjoying Norman’s blog. The negative internet bullies are a minority here and after a while the fans and readers here learn to just ignore and laugh. But thank you John, if I may call you John – for you are a person worth looking up to and supporting. Wishing you success in all your present and future endeavors. Good karma will always show up for people like you!

  3. August ang pageant ng MGP, september 15 ang arrival ng candidates sa thailand, meaning 1 month lang preparation ng reps naten sa MGI,

    • THANK YOU FOR THE WRITE-UP NORMAN!

      I JUST WANT TO CLARIFY WITH MR ANGELO REYES, MR TINIO’S ARTICLE IS PURELY HIS OWN PERSONAL WORDS AND OPINION. I WASN’T INTERVIEWED.

      MR. TINIO THOUGH WAS RIGHT ABOUT THE ADVANTAGES OF HOLDING OUR EVENT AT GT- TOYOTA – ELEMENT OF INTIMACY, CONTROL AND “PRACTICALITY”.

      MR REYES, YOU WERE RIGHT IN SAYING WE DO NOT/MIGHT NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT FUND FOR A BIGGER VENUE. YOU ARE SO CORRECT ABOUT THAT AND I’M SURE YOU’D AGREE IF I SAY, THERE IS NOTHING TO BE ASHAMED OF. THAT IS EXACTLY WHY WE LOOKED FOR AN OPTION.

      ALTHOUGH I DON’T OWE YOU AN EXPLANATION, THE MAIN REASON WHY I AM LAUNCHING AND STAGING THE PAGEANT IS BECAUSE WE, NATIONAL DIRECTORS/FRANCHISE HOLDERS ARE REQUIRED BY THE INTL. ORG TO STAGE A LOCAL SEARCH. IT IS IN THE CONTRACT WE HAVE SIGNED. HOWEVER, WE ARE “NOT REQUIRED” TO STAGE IT GRANDIOSELY, HOLD IT IN A BIG VENUE, NOT REQUIRED TO HAVE IT TELEVISED OR AIRED. IN SHORT, IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE BIG, YET MR REYES, I AM DOING THE BEST I CAN TO MAKE IT SOMETHING WORTHY OF PEOPLE’S TIME AND EFFORT. AND THE LAST TIME I CHECKED, I HAVEN’T ASKED FOR ANYTHING FROM YOU OR DISTURBED YOU.

      WITH REGARDS TO THE VENUE, IT MAY NOT BE A POPULAR CHOICE BUT IT WASN’T BUILT FOR NOTHING! I MADE SEVERAL VISITS AND INSPECTION OF THE VENUE,CONSIDERED PRACTICALLY EVERYTHING I NEEDED TO …. GT-TOYOTA IS A CHOICE OUR EVENT.

      ONLY A FOOL WOULD DARE COMPETE WITH THE LONG-RUNNING AND ALREADY ESTABLISHED NATIONAL PAGEANTS WE HAVE. I AM NO FOOL! I DON’T MIND STARTING SMALL. WHAT’S IMPORTANT IS FOR IT TO BE STAGED PROFESSIONALLY AND DECENTLY AND HOPEFULLY TO PRODUCE A WINNER WHO CAN POSSIBLY GIVE THE COUNTRY HONOR AND PRIDE BY WINNING THE INTERNATIONAL CROWN THIS OCTOBER IN THAILAND. I KNOW THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS TO LEARN ..I’M WILLING TO. HOPEFULLY BY NEXT YEAR AND IN THE YEARS TO COME GOD WILLING, I’D BE ABLE TO SATISFY YOUR STANDARD AND TASTE.

      YOU WILL BE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT MOST OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVE IN THIS PROJECT ARE FRIENDS, VOLUNTEERS! I DIDN’T HIRE THEM FOR A FEE. JUST LIKE YOU AND ME, THEY ARE PEOPLE WHO SHARE THE SAME PASSION WITH ME. FYI, THE REGIONAL COORDINATORS WHO RIGHT AT THIS VERY MOMENT ARE TRYING TO ORGANIZE AND FACILITATE REGIONAL SCREENINGS FOR US AND ON OUR BEHALF DON’T EVEN GET A SINGLE CENT. THEY JUST WANNA BE A PART OF THIS OR SIMPLY HELP ME. FASHION DESIGNERS HAVE VOLUNTEERED, SUPPLIERS HAVE EXPRESSED WILLINGNESS TO GIVE US GOOD RATES OR DISCOUNTS . . .THERE’S EVEN A PROFESSIONAL SINGER, A MEMBER OF “THE COMPANY” WHO EXPRESSED HIS WILLINGNESS TO INTERPRET THE THEME SONG AND RECORD FOR FREE! A WINNING COMPOSER WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT AGREED TO DO THE MELODY. A PROFESSIONAL GRAPHICS ARTIST AND VIDEO EDITOR IS DOING ALL OUR MATERIALS WITHOUT A FEE. A FASHION DESIGNER-FRIEND IS MAKING SWAROVSKI-STUDDED SASHES FOR THE WINNERS FOR FREE. A CONSTRUCTION COMPANY OWNED BY A FRIEND IS TAKING CARE OF OUR STAGE REQUIREMENTS. MR. REYES, NOT HAVING ENOUGH FUNDING IS NOT A REASON TO STOP AND GIVE UP. IF YOU HAVE PEOPLE LIKE THE ONES SURROUNDING ME RIGHT NOW, TO SURRENDER WOULD BE A SHAME…WOULD BE THE LAST THING TO DO.

      TO TELL YOU HONESTLY MR ANGELO REYES, I AM SURPRISED MYSELF, AMAZED AND SO OVERWHELMED . . ALL THESE PEOPLE HELPING, SHARING WHAT THEY CAN. I GUESS I MUST HAVE DONE SOMETHING GOOD IN THE PAST OR TO THEM FOR ME TO BE BLESSED WITH THEIR LOVE AND SUPPORT. TOGETHER WITH THE TEAM AND THOSE SUPPORTING AND BELIEVING, WE ARE DETERMINED TO PULL THIS OFF. NOW, DON’T YOU WORRY, WE WON’T INVOLVE YOU IF AND WHEN THINGS GET TOUGH AND ROUGH.

      JOHN DE LA VEGA
