  1. Nalinis na ang blog……………i mean mga kemeng comments hihi… thanks Tito Norman sa response!

  2. It’s really sad what has become of this blog. 😦 I guess I won’t be checking the comment section anymore.

      • Thanks Norman. I dreaded visiting your blog ever since that Nadine, Qodora or whatever her/his name is came into existence. Everything was just negativity. Pls ban him/her from logging in FOREVER!!!!

        Thanks

  3. So Nadine Alexandra aka Maria Selena copied Qory Sandioriva’s name and started spreading porn!!🙄🙄

  4. I see a lot of potentials in Cebu beauty queens. They are all stunning! Given the proper exposure and training, I think they can level to the likes of Pia, Catriona, Megan and Kylie. I hope that these girls will consider joining any of the national pageants.

    As at this date, Catriona is still the woman to beat in Miss Universe after the crowning of Miss Universe Colombia. I saw a lot of video comparisons between Catriona and Valeria and I could say that the former is miles ahead of the latter. To think that Catriona has prepared well in the past months and is continuously refining things she has taken up for the forthcoming Miss Universe, she can simply outdo Valeria on the MU stage. Whooo, I am so excited! I just hope talaga that the stars will align for Catriona.

    That’s all.

  5. Harvard suit seeks to pit Asian Americans against affirmative action

University of Texas at Austin affirmative action case. At right is Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., speaking in solidarity with the Asian American Coalition for Education protest. AP PHOTO

    With the end of summer, college students have now returned to campuses around the country, and high school seniors are beginning the dreaded process of college applications. Meanwhile, a trial is set to begin this month in a federal case challenging the admissions process at the nation’s oldest university, Harvard University.

    Within the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, this case is being closely watched, as it involves allegations that Harvard’s affirmative action policy is biased against AAPI students.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Given the Democratic Party’s longstanding support for affirmative action, some conservatives are using this case as a wedge issue to appeal to Asian Americans, who increasingly have supported Democratic candidates over the past quarter century.

    This cynical ploy won’t succeed. Because on a broad range of issues — including health care, the economy, immigration and civil rights — the values of the Asian American community are far more in sync with the positions of the Democratic Party.

    Asian Americans believe in hard work and education. We understand the importance of diversity. We want to create strong, healthy families and communities. And we work tirelessly to build a country where everyone has a shot at achieving the American Dream, whether it’s starting a business, buying a home or saving for retirement.

    In Congress and statehouses around the country, Democratic lawmakers are fighting for policies that reflect the values of the Asian American community. That means protecting the Affordable Care Act, which helped two million AAPIs gain health care coverage. That means pushing back against the Trump administration’s efforts to roll back family-based immigration policies that have allowed Asian families to reunite in this country.

    Democrats are also fighting to make higher education more affordable, protect clean air and water, create greater economic opportunities for minority-owned businesses, and most importantly, ensure that everyone can exercise the most important right of all — the right to vote.

    As the fastest-growing racial group in the country, the Asian American community isn’t monolithic, and we certainly don’t agree on every issue. One of those issues is affirmative action.

    While AAPI groups have staked out positions on both sides of the Harvard case, national surveys find that two-thirds of Asian Americans support affirmative action in higher education — a position that is backed by over 150 AAPI organizations. And in the Harvard litigation, prominent AAPI civil rights groups and academic experts have filed friend of the court briefs explaining how affirmative action helps Asian Americans.

    One of those civil rights groups, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, explained in filing its brief: “The heart of this lawsuit is whether Harvard can continue to value racial diversity in ways in which our country has consistently fallen short: acknowledging the entrenched racism that still pervades every aspect of life, bridging racial divides, and developing racially diverse leaders in every sector. This lawsuit has nothing to do with discrimination against Asian Americans.”

    There are certainly strongly held views on both sides of the affirmative action debate, and questions have been raised about Harvard’s policies for evaluating Asian American applicants. As an alumnus of Harvard Law School, I will be the first to criticize my alma mater if its policies are found to be unfair.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    However, the media’s disproportionate focus on one elite university’s admissions policies doesn’t reflect the view of most AAPI parents, who are far more concerned about rising college costs. And while many parents do aspire to send their children to an elite institution, it’s worth nothing that about half of AAPI college students attend community colleges.

    At its heart, this new-found conservative interest in Asian American college admissions is nothing more than an attempt to drive a wedge in the coalition of communities of color. Fortunately, most AAPIs understand full well that restricting access and opportunity for one racial group affects all groups.

    That’s why Asian Americans have united against the Trump administration’s Muslim ban, the separation of immigrant families at the border, and the despicable embrace of white nationalists after Charlottesville. When Asian Americans hear about border walls, we remember more than 80 years of exclusionary laws that cut off Asian immigration to this country. When we hear the president scapegoating immigrants, Muslims and people of color, we remember the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

    That’s why we’ve fought every step of the way to promote tolerance and progress. That’s always been the spirit of Asians in America. Our families came to the U.S. from dozens of different countries, and they faced many challenges upon their arrival. But when they climbed the ladder of success, they understood their obligation to lend a hand to the next generation climbing up the ladder.

    No matter our background, Asian Americans work hard not only to better our own lives, but to better the lives of our fellow Americans. That’s why we refuse to be pawns in this shameless effort to divide communities of color.

    “STUNNING and comfortable.”

    This was how Kymberly Maitland-Smith, owner of SOLTI Activewear, described how the Binibining Cebu 2018 candidates wore her creations during the pageant’s Swimwear Competition held at The Tent in Mandani Bay last September 26, Wednesday.

    The 54 candidates rocked the stage wearing Maitland-Smith’s blue two-piece swimwear.

    “They actually asked two-piece this year and so you could see a bit more on their figures,” she said.

    Maitland-Smith also coordinated with the Binibining Cebu 2018 organizers and came up with blue as the official color of this year’s swimwear.

    “The swimsuit was made for each girl. So I have to customize all the sizes. It was tough. It was really fun and it was really good,” she told the reporters.

    Maitland-Smith made all the 54 swimwear in two weeks.

    When asked for the inspiration behind the design, she answered, “Actually, well the trend right now is that kind of tough. It is a lot of different types of body types because that makes them comfortable with their shoulders and their necklines.”

    She said she is into sustainable fashion and used upcycled textiles that were discarded by big manufacturers.

    Aside from designing the official swimwear this year, Maitland-Smith was one of the judges during the pre-pageant eventy along with Cebuano actor Richard Yap, Dr. Cecilia R. Bernad, pageant blogger and coach Norman Tinio, and Miss Manila 2018 Kathleen Joy Paton.

    The swimwear competition began with candidates wearing Maitland-Smith’s creation with raincoats and umbrella as part of their props.

    Dancers from University of Cebu (UC) also served as back up dancers for the 54 candidates during the competition.

    Kenneth Cobonpue, creative director for Binibining Cebu 2018, told the reporters that they wanted to make the Swimsuit Competition different.

    Creation by Celine Borromeo

    “We decided to make the rain part, gloomy kind of setting. When we see swimsuit, it is always (think) sunny,” he told the reporters.

    The stage was also decorated with houses made of bamboo for a more Cebuano setting. A winding ramp was also created so that the audience will see the candidates from different angles.

    LONG GOWN

    Eighteen designers from the Fashion Association of Cebu’s Elite Talents (FACET) made the gowns for all the Binibining Cebu 2018 candidates.

    These Cebuano designers are Hannah Noel, Jan Tiong, John Arellano, Clieza Mayol, Lian Laoandalo, Jeph Polancos, Stef Tirado, Roxanna Baroquillo, Shayne Remoreras, Matthia Tangoan, Diane Ty, Nino Benito, Eyla Orais, Celine Borromeo, JP Cabigon, Pearl Arandia, Paco Serafica, and Carol Escasinas.

    Cobonpue said the designers used the colors of the rainbow as inspiration for the gowns.

    After the pre-pageant competition, the top three designers for Long Gown Competition were announced. These were Borromeo, Ty, and Cabigon.

    Borromeo designed the canary yellow gowns for Lou Dominique Piczon (Ronda), Ivy Esparcia (Samboan), and Mary Grace Castillo (San Fernando).

    “It feels very rewarding after all the work that I put in. Those are really worth my time, my efforts, and my creative capabilities,” she said.

    The sun is the inspiration for her creations, she said.

    For her, Cebuanos are very bright just like the sun.

    “Cebuanos are very welcoming, happy and positive. Hence, the color and all my the details with the lines, rays,” she said.

    She said it was also challenging for her to create all three gowns in 10 days.

    Creation by Diane Ty

    “I faced limited time because I had to juggle other projects as well,” she added.

    Ty said she did not expect to be one of the top three designers.

    “I am so happy that I was chosen to be one of the best designers tonight,” she said.

    Ty designed the navy blue gowns for Steffi Aberasturi (Mandaue City), Sheena Balansag (Medellin), and Kristine Gillamac (Minglanilla).

    She said her designs were inspired by flowers and roots.

    “Nisulod lang siya sa ako mind ato na time when I was thinking of a design. Maybe dili man siya ma predict nimo unsa maganahan ana. It depends unsa ako ma imagine,” she said.

    She said it was challenging to create all three designs without her own seamstress.

    Ty sewed the fabric, used her own machine and finished the three gowns in 10 days.

    Cabigon made the royal gowns worn by Princess Donah Paraiso (San Francisco), Shaznay Corres (San Remigio), and Kemberly Gillamac (Santa Fe).

    The pre-pageant was important in identifying the top 20 candidates which will be announced during the coronation night on October 19 at the Grand

    Ballroom of the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.

    The criteria to determine the top 20 are Swimwear Competition (30 percent), Long Gown Competition (30 percent), Closed-door Interview (25 percent), and Organizers (15 percent).

    CEBUANA queens rocked the runway as they showcased their sizzling swimwear and haute gowns specially designed by Cebu’s top fashion designers in the Binibining Cebu Swimwear and Long Gown Competition last Wednesday, Sept. 26 in The Tent at Mandani Bay.

    Fifty-four stunning candidates conquered the runway with confidence wearing long-gowns each specially designed by 18 young designers from the Fashion Association of Cebu’s Elite Talents (Facet). Celine Borromeo, Diane Ty and JP Cabigon were chosen as the top three designers of the night.

    Celine Borromeo draws inspiration from the sun, associating it with how Cebuanos shine with their happiness and positivity. Lou Dominique Piczon (Ronda), Ivy Esparcia (Samboan) and Mary Grace Castillo (San Fernando) wore Celine’s elegant canary yellow gowns with extreme confidence.

    Inspired by flowers and roots, Diane designed navy blue gowns for Steffi Abersaturi (Mandaue City), Sheena Balansag (Medellin) and Kristine Gillamac (Minglanilla). Diane thought of the design out of the blue, spanning the depths of her very own imaginations.

    JP tapped royalty, designing three royal blue gowns for Princess Donah Paraiso (San Francisco), Shaznay Corres (San Remigio) and Kimberly Gillamac (Santa Fe).

    The blazing hot swimwear competition started with the candidates wearing their blue two-piece swimwear paired with raincoats and umbrella as props. Dancers from the University of Cebu gladly joined candidates on stage. With the winding runway, audiences got a good view of the candidates in all angles. This year, Kenneth Cobonpue, the creative director of Binibining Cebu 2018, decided to have the swimwear competition in a rainy and gloomy setting in contrast to the sunny weather people usually associate swimsuits with.

    SOLTI Activewear’s Kymberly Maitland-Smith designed the stunning masterpieces. She specially made each swimsuit to have all the sizes customized for the candidates’ comfort in their shoulders and necklines. Kymberly is fond of sustainable fashion, so the pieces used textiles discarded by large-scale manufacturers.

    The pre-pageant is essential for choosing the top 20 which will be announced during the coronation night. To keenly judge the candidates, the organizers invited this set of judges: Cebuano actor Richard Yap, Dr. Cecilia R. Bernard, pageant blogger and coach Norman Tinio, Miss Manila 2018 Kathleen Joy Paton and Kymberly Maitland-Smith. The coronation night will be on Oct. 19 at the Grand Ballroom of the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino. Michael Rey M. Cortes, Contributor
