Below are Official photos taken from the Charity Visit of the Bb. Pilipinas 2018 Official Candidates to the Bistekville Housing Project of Habitat for Humanity Philippines in Quezon City.
See who among them still look good while mixing cement, carrying hollow blocks, doing gravel and sand and the like.
Michael Cinco in Iceland
You want something juicy to talk about? Now this one is a safe blind item because – after all – negotiations did not prosper so it’s just something to make wild guesses about.
Who is this Binibini among the present forty (40) who was originally scheduled to be dressed up by the Impalpable Michael Cinco in the competition? At first, the mere thought of this lady wearing his creation/s would be so intimidating to other designers or even the other candidates as it will give that kind of advantage that can be considerably hard to match in terms of media mileage and popularity. Somehow, the lit-fire was doused just at the right moment. Perhaps, the risk on both wearer and the Designer can be weighty – more on the latter in my opinion.
Do not ask me clues on who the Binibini is because my lips are permanently sealed on this one. Just enjoy the discussions.
Now since we are in the subject of Michael Cinco, do watch out for the fashion show that will be this year’s most anticipated as he will be joined by Francis Libiran, Amato Furne, Ezra Santos and Cary Santiago in a grand event aptly titled “World Class” in celebration of Waterfront Cebu City Hotel’s 20th Anniversary. It will be held at the Pacific Grand Ballroom on October 6. 😉
Today’s Charity Event of the Bb. Pilipinas 2018 Official Candidates brought them to Bgy. Culiat in Quezon City where the Bistekville Housing Project of Habitat for Humanity Philippines is located. This place will house the largest number of informal settlers in the country, with more than 200,000 families who used to live or are still living in areas considered danger zones. Many of them dwelled in patched-up houses made of salvaged materials they find in dump sites.
The forty (40) Binibinis spent precious hours helping build and paint some of the houses in the area as part of their annual contribution to the charity organization. More photos will follow soon.
Here’s a brand-new victory for the Filipina in the international pageant stage. Miss Philippines Sophia Senoron was crowned the inaugural edition of Miss Multinational 2017/2018 during the finals of the pageant held at the Kingdom of Dreams in Gurugram, India. She defeated twelve other contenders for the title. First runner-up is Miss Germany, Saskia Kuban and 2nd Runner-up is Miss India, Shefali Sharma.
National Pageant Director Arnold Vegafria went to the host country to personally witness another achievement for the Philippines after he also flew to Bolivia for last Reina Hispanoamericana won by another one of his titleholders, Teresita Marquez.
Below is her crowning moment video.

Interestingly enough, seven of the ten ladies who became Official Finalists for Century Tuna Superbods Ageless 2018 are familiar names and faces in pageantry like Miss World Philippines 2012 Queenie Rehman, the beautiful Kim Ross delos Santos, the very sporty Alexandra Faith Garcia, former Mutya and Miss World America runner-up Maureen Montagne, former Miss Philippines Earth runner-up Joanna Tolledo, the inspiring Christine Balaguer and former Miss Bikini Philippines participant Mariah Nilo.
Who do you think will do well in the fitness-driven competition among them?

It used to be that the Philippines always sends more than one representative for the annual Miss International Queen Pageant in Pattaya, Thailand. But for 2018, we will have a sole entry on whose shoulders will weigh in the mission of notching another victory in the said pageant after Kevin Balot and Trixie Maristela.
Carla Marie Madrigal of Misamis Oriental Province has already departed for the Land of Smiles and is 100% ready to fight for the Philippines. She will be wearing the country’s sash up until the finals to be held at Tiffany’s Show on March 9.
Watch her introductory video below.
The Binibinis are now back in Manila after spending more than a few days at Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bataan for photoshoots, a workshop and pure bonding time with each other – just like what the 2017 batch did in Subic. This allowed all forty (40) ladies to get to strengthen their sisterhood even more so that they become a cohesive group all the way to the finals next month.
The photoshoot in their respective National Costumes will also give the official photos a more interesting backdrop once uploaded for everyone to enjoy.
