Today, I will be leaving for Lucena, Quezon to participate as a judge for the province’s Niyogyugan 2016 Festival. But no, I won’t be part of the panel to select the winner of this year’s Bb. Niyogyugan search as I have been invited by the Provincial Government to take part in the assessment of the different booths plus the Grand Parade and Street Showdown Celebration that will end the festivities with a big bang.
And so, I am free to choose my favorites from among the ladies vying for the crown. And top of my head would be a three-way battle for the crown among the bets of Candelaria, Sariaya and Lucena City – Ma. Athisa Manalo, Aubrey Macalalad and Julie Ann Gil respectively. I am almost certain that one of them would take home the title for their municipalities.
But wait, there are potential spoilers waiting in the wings. The entries of Pagbilao (Nicole Kristel Losloso), Gumaca (Ebeth Jasmine Belen) and Quezon (Ellen Otalla) could also figure out well. So as they say, may the best girl (or Quezonian) win!
I intend to enjoy the culminating activities so if you’re in Lucena, see you there! 😀
