Good luck! God bless! 🙂

Miss Philippines Rogelie Catacutan (leftmost) during the Preliminary Interview with the judges of Miss Supranational 2015
Miss Philippines Rogelie Catacutan has gone through all the preliminary phases of competition – swimsuit, evening gown and interview. There is a waiting period from this point hereon where endless rehearsals will fill in the schedule of the candidates. My hope is that our bet has done more than enough to secure a good placement at the very least. Of course, nothing beats aiming for the Philippines’ 2nd Miss Supranational crown. We just need to stay positive but at the same time ready for any eventuality.
By the way, Rogelie wore a Cary Santiago gown (photo below) for the judging. 🙂

Mister Worldwide Philippines 2015 Jolo Dayrit and I
Orlando, Florida will be awaiting the arrival of Mister Worldwide Philippines 2015 Jolo Dayrit tomorrow – December 1 – when the competition for Mister Worldwide 2015 officially starts. Our representative has prepared hard for the moment to shine in the male pageant and he promises to give his best all throughout. Your blogger spoke with him during the Thanksgiving Party for Arcel Yambing and Judah Cohen. And in his own words, “I think I have a good chance here. Please pray for me. I appreciate all your guidance and support.
From all of us here at normannorman.com, good luck in Mister Worldwide 2015, Jolo! 🙂

Miss World 2014 Rolene Strauss
The Miss World Organization (MWO) couldn’t have picked a more qualified winner last year in Rolene Strauss. This South African lass has been continuously performing her duties as the reigning titleholder to a T. And now that she is leading the delegates of Miss World 2015 in almost all the pre-pageant events in China, there is the ingrained responsibility of becoming big sister to everyone. She is both warm and gracious. Her presence is commanding but still accessible.
I wonder who among this year’s batch is starting to get the halo effect from Julia Morley. We all know that the delegates are being keenly observed every single day. And whoever proves to have all the best qualities to fill in the shoes of Rolene will most likely shine all the way to December 19 when Miss World 2015 will be crowned. 🙂
Consider this a 2-in-1 post about our ladies in Miss Supranational 2015 and Miss Earth 2015.
Over the weekend, Miss Philippines Rogelie Catacutan competed in the preliminary swimsuit competition of her pageant in Poland. And she looks quite fetching in the orange two-piece she wore for the judging.
Meanwhile, another Miss Philippines, Angelia Ong, had her official National Costume photo released in Vienna. As previously blogged, she is wearing a Chico Estiva original inspired by the Sampaguita flower.
Many significant things will happen this week for both. The finals of both competitions will come one after the other. December 4 for Supra and December 5 for Earth.
Will both Rogelie and Angelia successfully prevail? We’ll see! 😉
Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach by Raymond Saldaña
Gone are the days when Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach would be bashed for teetering dangerously close to being on the plump side. She took all the beatings to heart and made an absolute resolve to prove her detractors wrong. After several months of intensive training with Fitness Guru John Cuay, above is the new form of our Queen – thinner, shapelier and definitely curvaceous.
And as she departs for Las Vegas very very soon, Pia will be fully armed. Fueled with the desire to do the Philippines proud and committed to gift the Philippines with its 3rd Miss Universe crown, she will embark on a journey that will prove that she is well-deserved.
She is Miss Universe Philippines 2015 after all. 🙂

Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach with Boy Abunda
Right after her send-off to Miss Universe 2015 last Thursday, Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach was immediately whisked to the ABS-CBN Studio where she guested on Tonight With Boy Abunda. And she was still definitely in her most animated self while answering the questions of the host.
Pardon the quality of the video below. It’s the best I got under the circumstances. The important thing is that you can still follow her one-on-one with Boy Abunda.

It was a successful event all around, the Thanksgiving Party for Arcel Yambing and Judah Cohen, that is. (Photo credit: Joy Arguil)
Last night, the Thanksgiving Party for Mister Model International Philippines 2015 Arcel Yambing and Mister Tourism International Philippines 2014 Judah Jyreh Cohen was held at the Tesoro Terraz Sky Lounge of La Verti Residences in Pasay City. The event was successfully staged with members of the media covering the event. What made it more special was the presence of Madam Preciousa Anna Medina who is now at the helm of the soon-to-be-launched Gentlemen of the Philippines and Luis Trujillo of Tim Management which runs Mister Model International and Mister Dominican Republic. In addition, the National Directors of Myanmar and Australia also graced the occasion, along with generous sponsors and friends from the talent management industry.
It was especially more memorable for Arcel Yambing who placed Top 6 and won both Most Photogenic and Mister Congeniality during Mister Model International 2015 in Miami and Judah Cohen who managed a Top 3 placement and the Best International Look title from Mister Tourism International 2015 in Panama City.
Prizes were raffled off, including two (2) trips for two to Boracay won by Vin Ello and Raffy Aquino. But the more exciting part was the Open Mic session where intriguing questions were asked and answered about the future launch of the newest national male pageant in the country, Gentlemen of the Philippines 2016 which will blogged about more extensively in the next month or so before being officially introduced to the general public come late January, 2016.
From all of us here at normannorman.com, here’s to Arcel Yambing, Judah Cohen, Mister Tourism International Philippines 2015 Willan Pagayon, Rick Kristoffer Palencia, Mister Worldwide Philippines 2015 Jolo Dayrit and the Gentlemen of the Philippines!
