    • And what’s wrong with looking like the beautiful Miss Kevin Balot, our 1st winner of Miss International Queen? Are you threatened because Bella could win?

  1. Ysabella: as a girl’s name is related to the Hebrew names Elizabeth and Isabel and the French name Ysabel. The meaning of Ysabella is “God’s promise”.
    Her nickname Bella is it’s diminutive form which is related to the Italian, Spanish, Greek, Portuguese and Latin words for beautiful, to the name Belle, meaning beautiful in French.

    Roxas- a diminutive of Rojas, the surname which is derived from the feminine, plural Spanish word “Rojo,” which means “red.” The name was most likely topographic, first used by someone who lived near some “red earth.”

    Ysmael is a version of Ishmael, a hebrew name meaning “God saves”.

    ….

    I deamt a modern red tule gown accented w/ tiny swarovsky crystals that look like rust and tiny silk red roses… the use of the words “mold”, “clay” and “save”… The countries Mexico & Cuba… a beautiful voluminous national costume… a beautiful light show… 2 large white seabirds and a giant centipede on my foot…. hmmmmm????

    • In addition

      Ishmael is from the Hebrew name יִשְׁמָעֵאל (Yishma’el) meaning “God will hear”, from the roots שָׁמַע (shama’) meaning “to hear” and אֵל (‘el) meaning “God”. In the Old Testament this is the name of a son of Abraham. He is the traditional ancestor of the Arab people.

      • I wish I was…
        But No.

        I guess you havn’t been reading this blog long enough to notice… I’ve been doing this name origins thing on the girls I like since Venus Raj…

  2. She’s a beauty. A ballerina’s main attributes are elegance and grace. If her communication skills are good to go, then so is she. Crown her!

  3. Pretty…amazing bone structure….I hope she’s between 5’6-5’8 without heels……physical beauty wise she has it. How about her personality and communication skills? Does she sound westernized or provincial?

    • Check her youtube vids… She did grew up here and studid at DLSU.. Why would she sound provincial as you say?

  4. There are several posts saying…she is on the short side?… How short is really short?…. 5’4?… 5’7″ is OK na..

    • She’s at least 5’7+ barefeet since she’s towering over her aunt Margie who’s 5’6 barefeet+ around 2inch heels.

  5. Mutya Pilipinas top 10 2020
    BBp top 10 2021
    MUP top 10 2022
    Bbp International and MI 2023

  6. Bella is my bet for Miss International.

    I can’t wait for her to slay…
    If she only becomes 1st runner up at MI…
    Then she could join MUP.

  7. PWEDE SI BELLA SA MISS UNIVERSE PHILIPPINES. MAY COMPETITOR NA SI JULIA SAUBIER. NORMAN PAKISABI SA ALAGA MONG SI INDAY MALINAO SA BB. PILIPINAS LANG SIYA KASI INADEQUATE ANG KANYANG KNOWLEDGE & COMMUNICATION SKILLS. HANNAH ARNOLD, VICKIE RUSHTON, SAMANTHA BERNARDO JOIN ULIT SA BPP. STEFFI SA MWP DAHIL SIYA AY CAR SHOW MODEL. CORTESI SUBUKAN NIYANG MAKIUSAP KAY CORY QUIRINO SA MUTYA PILIPINAS. YUNG IBANG NATALO SA BB. PILIPINAS LAST YEAR SUBUKAN NINYO SI LORRAINE SA MISS PHILIPPINES EARTH. TRY & TRY HANGGANG PWEDE PA SA AGE LIMIT. He,he,he…

    • @ paul Bella is a Roxas(-Ysmael). The Roxases are relatives of the Aranetas. Hannah might defer dahil busy siya sa mga modelling awra; she surely will not mind earning some money dahil as we all know her family cannot single-handedly finance a second attempt, regardless of some offers of free sponsorship (this was the subject of the teaser Mr. Tinio dedicated to her). Connect the dots : Bella might be given the Tokyo Dome portfolio…..

      Vickie is being, IN MY OPINION, pressured to yet again postpone her wedding plans (with actor Jason Abalos) to accept one last attempt to snatch the BBP-International crown. The upgrade of the age ceiling at MI to 28 has granted a final window of opportunity. But guys, come on! She’s 27. Baka mahirapan na sila magka-baby….

      If Vickie relents and gives it one more go, she is the presumptive top titlist of BBP 2020. Which means Bella might be adjusted to take the Polish campaign…. Supranational….

      In any case, Hannah’s earliest return to pageantry could be next year, 2021. Not this year.

      Alaiza seems bent on MUP. Pagbigyan na, para matapos na. As for Celeste, I think what she really wants is work. She said so before, when winning MPE – “i will stay on in the Philippines if there are opportunities (or something to that effect)”. If she can bag a good endorsement deal – like the Ever Bilena though i would prefer Lacap to get this and anyway the earlier post on tattoos proves that BPCI accepts applicants with ink – then even a semifinal if not Runner-up finish at BBP would suffice.

      • Nice info Flor. Pero tawang-tawa ako sa yung malinao’s agriculture and bernardo’s malaria. NORMAN LET’S CREATE A NEW PAGEANT – MISS ADVOCACY INTERNATIONAL! Ha, ha, ha…

      • @Bonsai

        But Margie joined when MU title was w/ BBP….
        Bella would most likely be sent to Miss International.

      • Bella Ysmael has a greater chance of winning the top title since for sure, she would be more favored than Vicky.
