  1. @ miss tissa, you want updates, po?

    Drop by Blogger’s FB page and look at the Binibinis at their visit to the PITX.

    Three TRUTHS may be gleaned.

    1. Leren and Lo will not only slay silently but will WIN. Powtek, ang GANDA nila (double puso)!

    2. Mukha’ng magkakatotoo ang prediction ni Psychic Gurmeet kay Mademoiselle Saubier (sigh).

    3. Juzkoh, HUWAG NA HUWAG niyo po ipagtabi sina Patch at Jane Genobisa. Though both are quite heavily made-up, the latter OUTSHINES the former (who apparently suffers from microcephaly, a term I learned from Fabian Reyes when referring to Rachel Peters two years ago).

    • @flortula 2 frontrunners are not beautiful. Yun Isa madadaan pa sa enhancements come next year.

    • Now I know u r the Guy formerly known as Andrew
      I like Flor Tula
      He Is just as articulate but more Down to earth

    • Pasensya na. The family is on a tour of Eastern Europe right now and our constant movements from one city to the next make it harder to follow the updates based on WiFi availability. 😕

  2. Now I remember Anjame Magbitang’s costume last year. KKK on the gold hat and a gold lace table cloth as cape…. Tacky tacky tacky!… Yes I’m reading last year’s costume… Cause I cant say anything bad this year… all I could do is nit pick… I believe this year is the best batch of national costumes in BBP.

    • me mga post ako na di pumasa sa pansala ni admin..(or di nya bet, kc iba manok nya) nag test post ako by just saying ‘ang ganda’, ayun, posted agad…kalokah!

      • Kalokah ka, Marvin1978! Huwag mo kasi ginagalit si Admin.

        Siyempre, siya ang maganda. (Hihihih)

        Admin, talo pikon. Tandaan mo, extra special ang pasaluibong sa ‘yo ni Blogger. 🙂

      • @Marvin: Don’t despair. It happened to me a lot of times, too. What’s surprising is that my comments are never negative, and never discourteous. Those that get censored are usually those containing a bit of research and those that appear like academic writing. But what can I do? That’s how I write because I used to be a campus journalist and my work overseas does a lot of technical writing.

  3. Resham Saeed’s is good to go!

    Black, please ditch the literal peacock tail; I know exactly what you are referencing and frankly with your queenly stance the long dress is enough (instead, I suggest a minimal head piece to prevent the look from looking plain).

    And whoever gets assigned to MI should try Sam Poblete’s Rayadillo for a change.

    • What is Jessarie refferencing aside from the Palawan peacock pheasant?

      • Hello again, C2F.

        Exactly – THE bird.

        But the literal peacock train looks too Miss India, used all too many times before internationally. India even accused Myanmar of copying it (although I do think peacocks once ranged across Indochina).

      • Yes, The two Asiatic species are the blue or Indian peafowl originally of the Indian subcontinent, and the green peafowl of Southeast Asia; the one African species is the Congo peafowl, native only to the Congo Basin. It has been introduced by ancient Malay-Polinesians to as far as Hawaii… Only in the Philippines where it did not become prominent possibly because it was over-hunted along with introduced elephants during the Spanish era due to it’s connection to our former ancient culture that our colonizers tried their best to erase. Although in the same family, the Palawan peacock pheasant is not a true peacock but from a different genera who developed a simillar looking tail due to convergent evolution.

      • C2F, I’m amazed at your knowledge of history and animal species. This is not the first time you injected in your commentaries some snippets of Phil history and culture. Are you a historian? Naturalist?

      • @Scorg

        Thanks! I also find majority of your comments as one of the most substantial in this blog. But I’m neither a naturalist nor historian… You may ask me about other random unrelated topics and I may also be able to share some of my stocked knowledge about it.
