Before the Bb. Pilipinas Parade of Beauties started earlier, the forty (40) Binibinis – who were each assigned to a Miata topdown car – patiently waited at the basement parking of Novotel Manila Araneta Center for the time to move up and start with the drive around Araneta Center.
Meanwhile outside the hotel lobby upstairs, members of the media were pleasantly surprised to see Madame Stella Marquez de Araneta – with husband Jorge – arrived unannounced.
So you can see the delight in the faces of the Binibinis upon seeing SMA waving at them and individually checking their positions in the car. It was a welcome sight because the candidates have been missing the presence of the BPCI Head for a long time now. And early reports stated that she will only arrive from abroad a couple of days before the April 17 finals.
And so, the Mother of all Binibinis can now resume her role. Actually, she already did. Right after the parade itself, she stood in the middle in front of the ladies and inspected their formation, fixed headdresses and gave quick instructions as to how to project themselves in front of the big crowds. And the cheers got louder even.
All in a day’s worth of parade. The individual photos are already placed in grids below. Also, be informed that there will be two “surprises” next week as intimated to us by BPCI’s Gines Enriquez himself. Of course, you already know the first which is the return of Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. The second one is still under wraps and will just catch us off-guard several days from now.
Watch out for it! 😉
