  1. Ang mga backlush na mababaho ang bunganga. Nakuh ha wag akong gagalitan kagagaling Ko Lang sa trabaho sa hospital for a trauma surgery at wala pa akong tulog. Sa mga Kuya kuda ng mga baklush Dahil sa national costume ni Catriona. Una sa lahat it was a very charming performance of Catriona and that is what matters. Yung walang alam sa art yang. Nag kamuda pa, mabuti nga na ire present ni Catriona yung three regions at least hindi effigy ni Duterte. Chi lax Lang mga beks hindi ito basis ng mananalo sa finals night.

  2. PANIRA YUNG STAND AT GULONG, PATI YUNG DIAPER.

    SANA NAGPATONG KA NA LANG NG PALAYOK SA ULO MO.

    OR NAGHILA SIYA NG KARETELA.

    FAILED.

  3. Led lights is not allowed. But I will give her 10 for gracefully carrying the whole ensemble. Marami ang nag comments hindi mga kups na Pilipino ito ay mga ilang lahi na sabi nila sya daw yung piñaka gorgeous habang naglalakad and she enjoyed the event. Kudos

  4. Only a true Filipino by heart can appreciate the NC of Catriona. Her NC has indeed represented the whole country. It was superbly done! The best we had so far. Look at the details, it showed the craftmanship of the Filipinos. Intricate design on the parol, the paintaing at the back, the hair dress, the nude dress- it was superb!!! CAT’s team has offered something so fresh, unparalleled philippine costume and our love for the arts.
    CAT was also able to carry it well. She was beautiful in every angle and havent you noticed she carried with with so much pride and love. CAT always amazes me, and she always delivers..I believe in her,because she has that burning desire and passion to always excel in everything she does. SHE wants to be Miss Universe 2018, and not a runner-up.
    PRAYING that God will really give her the favor and will reward her for all her effort.

    • Grabe ka naman. Parang makapuna lang ibig sabihin hindi na true Filipino by heart… Naappreciate ko ang effort at idea. Pero yung presentation hindi ko naappreciate… and yung color combination rin ng parol… medyo off sa kulay ng damit ni Catriona. Kahit may profound meaning pa mga detalye hindi tatatak sa memory sa sobrang daming minute detail… so from afar at sa laki ng stage walang makakagets.

      Pero 10+++ for the effort magtanim ay di biro

    • Catriona’s team was seemingly inspired by the novelty of the tuktuk outfit of Ms thailand some years back. Consolidation of cultures and harmony in diversity – these are the themes that her costume wanted to convey. The concept is great. But let’s admit the execution was less than perfect.

  5. No doubt, catrionas nationals’ natcos was way better..it was a masterpiece..and certainly, it was hard to replicate barely a year after..creative juices takes time to take shape… anyhow, i thot the parol would ligjt up as it does in pampanga..

    • Parang tapos na ata Marvin. Mukhang walang ilaw or di kita ang ilaw dahil naliwanag daw ang stage. Hmmm so far I am hearing not so good comments.

      • @ObservingYou: I am just waiting for the official footage kasi that’s when we’ll see the scattered, ika pa ni Manny Pacquiao.

      • @ath, i think sobrang taas lang cguro ng expectation kasi todo hyped. Icipin mo truck pa naghakot nyang parol na yan. They better not release the VISMIN teaser na and just be silent until the prelims.

  6. Puro kasi talak, puro Press Release, puro teaser..

    Hahahahahaha..

    “WORK IN SILENCE LET YOUR SUCCESS MAKE THE NOISE.”

    I THINK YOU TEAM NIYA ANG MAGPAPATALO KAY CAT MISMO..

    • Ikaw kaya yung talak ng talak. Sana you pray na lang in silence in case wala kang magandang masasabi.

      • Proof? Kung nagyabang man yung team ni Cat malaman November 1 pa lang alam mo na yung natcos nya. The fact na ngayon lang lumabas wala silang planong ipagmayabang toh. If your saying na gumawa pa ng videos for that eh ano naman. Hindi lang natcos nya ang prinomote dun kung hindi ang buong Pilipinas para makilala sa buong mundo. Maliban sa magagandang beach meron pa tayong ibang pwedeng I-offer. Like aets and craftsmanship ng mga pinoy.

    • Sumaya ka naman sa sinabi mo? Ikinaganda mo ba?
      The time, effort and the will that Cat and her team put up into making the costume are enough to make us proud and be positive. It may not have met your expectations but remember MJ’s costume. Would you rather settle for it? Yung work in silence na sinasabi mo, apply mo sayo.

    • Ikakapanalo, ikakaganda at ikakayaman mo ba mga negativities mo? Gagang twoh hahaha

  7. Di nila naanticipate na maliwanag ang stage lights kaya hindi makita ang ilaw ng parol.
    Does the parol even have lights in it?
    Mas maganda at regal ang costume niya sa Bb. Pilipinas.
    Anyway, wala naman yatang points ang nat costume sa judging for top 20 placement.

    • I think our Natcos is a failure. Too much hype. Not living up to expectation.

      Its non bearing but this is tactical. Magreview nga sila ng Evening Gown baka mamya kung anu-anong gimik at di naman ma execute ng maayos. Please lang.

    • I agree. They should have test the patrol first or try if Cat will be able to walk properly. If not sana hindi na lang nila sinama. Or come up with a better idea. The jumpsuit and accessories is beautiful yung parol lang talaga.

      • Upclose it looks put together kaya I am not fully disappointed. Pero in motion, it was a bit sad.
        Super agree! The jumpsuit and accessories looked amazing. Halos wala nga akong nakita na nag tribal-tribal this year.

      • If MU will create a video for the natcos to be shown in the finals night better siguro not to include the parol so she can execute her moves well.

  8. So yun na yun???????

    Yun na yung pasabog sa NatCo?
    Yun naba yung nag arkila pa sila ng truck ng buhangin para lang pick upin eh pwede namang sa tuktuk nlng sinakay?

    Yun naba yung ginawan pa ng teaser ekek na di rin natuloy yung 2?

    Sorry kung mejo mataas ang expectations ko cguro dahil narin sa pa secret secret promo nila.

    But still Kudos to Cat for trying her best to carry it well.

    Next year wala ng secret secret ekek kung di naman mapangatawanan. Just saying.

  9. Just sharing my 2 cents.

    Until I see the official footage, I’m not yet decided whether I like it or not. From afar (based on FB live, IG live, etc), it looked underwhelming. Pero nung malapitan, gosh, she looked like a painting and she blended to the parol. For that part, I understood how her outfit worked aesthetically.

    Although I am very happy with the parol idea, my question was always, “hindi ba lalamunin ng stage ang costume ni Cat?”. I was right. Nilamon nga. Pero until I see the official footage, as of now, parang yun na nga.

    What I see is a lack of foresight in terms of the possible staging. Why? Even I did not expect that the stage will be THAT big. I only expected a stage as big as MU 2015 & MU 2016. What is more is that those settings had dimmer lighting. That is why we were able to clearly see MU Thailand 2015’s tuktuk lights clearly. In this case, no. They went bigger and brighter.

    They went with the idea of the parol and respected its ‘true craft’. By respecting the ‘true craft’ of the item, they went with all the heavy materials and all that. No problem, really. However, when I saw even the photo of the stand and the wheels, I knew it wasn’t going to be smooth. It was, for me, the biggest flaw. It only had 4 wheels and were very spread apart. The tendency was if Cat were to lean forward, the parol would wobble over. There was nothing in the middle of that stand that suspended that movement.

    • You describe it like our Natcos is a failure. Lets keep quiet for now and see the final execution.

      Also, umiilaw ba ang parol ni Cat? If hindi, forget it.

      • Of course, it’s not a failure. I think it was different and she looks like a painting if we look at the stills.
        I was just nitpicking over the stand and the issue na baka lamunin ng stage lights ang ilaw ng parol niya.

        Umiilaw. That is why I said na I will wait until I see the official footage. 🙂

  10. @norman, why post a false render? And then now you have deleted it? Hmm hyping is okay, misleading is different. Hmmm I will keep quiet until the show is over.

    • Baka ako lang, but I’m a bit disappointed. Sana nilagay na lang sa costume ung effort sa pa-video teaser.
      Hindi man lng inaral na parol na made of light materials. Walang mechanism. It’s an overhyped, epic fail. Sorry.
      Sana Hindi na sinecret pa.:-(

  11. I was underwhelmed to be honest. I really thought, it would incorporate running LED lights underneath the parol. Ans she was also struggling dragging it at the center stage and back.

  12. Ang chaka ng parol at gown na may diaper..tapos mukhang nahirapan pa sya hatakin ang parol…so much hype ….mas maganda natcos ni catriona during the natl pageant

    • agree ako mas maganda yung costume niya sa BBP. Maganda sana kaso yung bigat nakasira sa presentation… it’s okay next time rehearse rin muna yung NC check if okay ilakad… and yung likod hindi ko rin masyado naintindihan kasi maraming details.. from afar hindi siya magegets agad…

  13. Sorry Jearson, failed yung diaper part, the boots approved. Yyng roleta sa likod, na may bakal stand nyay..

  14. In fairness each year nagiging more competitive na tayo sa national costume. Umilaw ba siya in person?

    Ang gaganda rin ng mga costumes nina Laos, Vietnam, Peru so creative. Ganda ni Peru fan na niya ako hehe

    • oo yun na yon ! at maganda sya ! di hamak na mas maganda sa mga naisip ng Aces and Queens

    • Naka abang ka na talaga para mam bash. Alam naman namin masakit pa puso mo dahil sa pagkaligwak ni Katarina na solid A&Q.

      • The costume was so hilarious. Accept it. Parang roleta na iikot si cat, tapos babatuhin ng kutsilyo. Wtf is the diaper she is wearing?

  15. Off topic: Bakit parang naka blackout ang Global Beauties sa Miss World and Miss Universe? Anong drama kaya nila?

    • Hindi sila nka block beks it’s either late lang sila mag update ng storya nila or di sila nka kuha ng exclusive rights to cover both pageants.

  16. Oh my. I have seen the rendering. Catriona is going for the kill. Sasayaw pa ata ang reyna natin. Go Cat! Go #buongpilipinas!

    • I must add that this costume maybe the best ever national costume of a filipina candidate that truly representative of what the Philippines is as a country, as a people and its culture. Good job, Team Catriona!

  17. Guys wag patulan ang mga bashers…kayo ang talo dyan. Wag magreply, wag din magthumbs down lalo na wag mag thumbs up sa mga comments nila. Just ignore them as if they never exist in this blog. Let’s just support our beautiful and well deserving candidate…CATRIONA GRAY 23 PHILIPPINES!!!

  18. May “life-like” rendering ng Costume ni Cat sa fb ni tito Norman… nakita niyo na? Luzon: parol. Visayas: Sinaulog top complete with Sto. Nino. Mindanao: Tinalak skirt

  19. dami haka haka
    pasabog kuno

    yun lang yun?

    may parol sa likod thats it nothing new and spectacular

    nilamon ng ibang bansa

    • Ang Ecuador din super maka recycle ng concepts! Paranf lang year lang pero hummingbird ngayon. Kudos! Di tayo nag-iisa! Bisous xxxx *sarcasm

  20. sa fb live sa backstage andami magagandang NatCos

    this will be an amazing show

  21. Tinanggal ni Tito Norms ung article nya tungkol sa kumakalat na issue ng corruption sa MW.

    Bakit kaya? Hmmmm……

  22. Luzon is parol
    Visayas is Cebu Lechon aka bilbil pa more
    Mindanao is her granada gilagid fake veneers and boobs plus flat puwet

    • Guyz, pansinin nyo naman ang taong to. He is screaming on top of his lungs para mapansin. Kung anu ano na nga lng ang ginagamit nyang pangalan para itago ang totoo nyang pagkatao o pgkahayup. Let’s be kind to animals naman. Eto lng kasi ang platform nya para mapansin. In real world, wala kasi pumapansin sa kanya, tsaka eto lng outlet nya para mabawasan trauma nya. Sobrang binully kasi sya nung kabataan nya kya gusto nyang mabawasan man lng ung pity sa sarili nya.

      Pagbigyan nyo na guys. Pansinin nyo. Anyway, malapit na rin tong kunin ni Lord, gurang na kasi to, as in masyonda/thunders…yun lang!

      • How many times that Norman was already informed about this guy but he doesn’t have the ability to remove him or perhaps he doesn’t want in the first place.he wants some spice in this forum. Paging Norman.

  23. i think sumabog na ang parol at ayaw umilaw
    gumawa na lang sila saranggola at hiniram ang nat cos ni MJ Lastimosa

    • Corny!!! Sobrang papansin. Kung may problema ka sa buhay mo, o di kaya’y walang nagta tyagang mahalin ka, kahit pamilya mo, huwag mo ibaling kay Cat ang kawalang hiyaan mo kasi purong paninirangpuri lang ang ginagawa mo. Mabuti pa yong baliw halo halo ang sinasabi, kaw paulit lit lang! Panira ka sa flow of convo ng mga maitino ang utak dito sa blog.

    • i was also waiting for the VIS MIN teaser. pero parang wala..

      EITHER…

      1. vis min video will be released after the natcos presentation. feeling ko kasi pag nilabas nila magkakahint na agad e. or medyo may giveaway.

      2. LUZON is the natcos..

      3. VISAYAS is the prelims gown

      4. MINDANAO is the finals gown..

      wala lang. naisip ko lang. kakaloka naman kasing team to! NAPAKA DAMING PASABOG!!!!! LOL

      • Naku po ang saya kung ganun haha. Few hours more to go. 1st round na. No score but certainly a huge pyschological factor 🙂

      • Mr. Manila – OMG if ever this is how this would play out!

        We still have a video from their November trip to the Visayas on its you. You may be on to something.

        I just love the drama!

    • I thought he was going to get cover too. Maybe prelims/finals?

      ABS-CBN was definitely backstage. Fortunately, Dyan Castillejo has been doing this for ages and really knows how to get the inside scoop. The one year she didn’t (that Fil-Am former Miss Earth candidate went – what’s her name now?) she was late for the preliminaries (stuck daw in Miami traffic) and missed it!
