  1. NOONG NANALO SIYA, NAGAGANDAHAN AKO SA KANYA, PERO LATELY, NAKAKAUMAY NA ANG BEAUTY NIYA. IISA LANG ANG LOOK NIYA, TAPOS ANG CHAKA CHAKA PA NG STYLING NIYA FROM MAKE-UP, HAIR AND ANG WARDROBE NIYA, MUMURAHIN.
    HINDI NA PWEDE YUNG SINASABI NI SHAMCEY SUPSUP NA ŸOU SHOULD PEAK AT THE RIGHT TIME” DAPAT ARAW ARAW MAY PASAVOGUE KASI ANG MISS UNIVERSE NGAYON 5 DAYS NA LANG. DI TULAD NOONG TIME NI SHAMCEY ALMOST 1 MONTH ANG MISS UNIVERSE.
    MARAMING VETERENA NGAYON SA MISS UNIVERSE, OO KOKONTI LANG ANG KANDIDATA PERO QUALITY NAMAN. SA AMERICAS PALANG ANG DAMI DAMI NANG COMPETITION.
    KAYA GIRL, YOU NEED TO WORK HARDER…

  2. Incidentally, bukas ang second month anniversary niya as MUP so eto na ulit ang unsolicited observations ko sa kanya as a pageant fan,

    Again, open for improvement naman itong si Inday!

    She goes to the gym with John Cuay as her Trainer! And eventhough kinulang sa dibdib at balikat si Inday, what the heck anyway? Hindi na naman katawan ang labanan sa MU! Pinatunayan na yan ni Sierra Bearchell!

    Napansin ko lang sa gym training niya, parang hindi siya familiar sa mga target muscle group considering na Physiotherapy graduate siya and yan dapat ang speciality niya? Like one time, she’s doing a cable row, parang hindi niya alam kung anong inclination ang appropriate to focus on the desired muscle which make me wonder, for a Cum Laude graduate and a Lecturer, ganun na ba ka “bookish” ang mga graduates ngayon na halos walang hand-on training sa mga College degree nila?

    I am 101% sure na pag tinanong tong si Inday eh makakasagot naman. But whether her answer will uplift her or will fail her is the bigger question? There are a lot of moments where she still feel intimidated or annoyed when being asked with provocative questions and provocative questions are unavoidable! And it is not all the time you are on a comfort zone or you have a safety net like your handler or IG Admin supporter who can always sugar coat or back you up when you messed up! You should be able to stand on your own feet lalo pa’t ang hinahanap ng MU is a spokesperson!

    I got the point na nawala na yung umiikot yung siko niya pag nagsasalita siya na parang nagle-lecture pa rin siya sa mga estudiante and was replaced by a finger flick! But at the end of the statement, it is always the content that matters!

    Styling is still a hit or miss! Hirap pa sila sa wardrobe planning appropriate for a specific event! Hirap pa rin sila i-highlight yung best features niya which is her long legs! Hirap pa sila to come up with a variety of hairstyle that will fit her that is why they always settle for a safe one which is the wavy voluminous style like that above!

    Good luck na lang!

    • I agree with your observation. As I watched her interview with Rafa Delfin, you can see her vulnerability with some some questions being thrown at her. I understand the sentiment of the majority like what Titas of pageantry pointed out. But those questions are imminent. She can dodge those questions if she chose not to.

      My apologies for my comment. But I just find her Madaldal but the substance is not there. Kailangan pang hintayin ng ilang sentences bago matumbok ang point. Baka ma cut na sya ng bell bago nya masagot ang tanong. There are a lot of great speakers and debaters on this edition.

      I just hope the pressure does not put a toll on her. It was so evident with gazini.

      • @ M Wow, OK. I can see the problem.

        Tumulad na lang siya kay Bernadette Belle Ong at Sushmita Senn. Both will use the first five (5) seconds to quietly decide on what position they will take, so the moment they open their mouth, tumbok agad ang punto! Apparently, “story-telling” ang style ni ROM. That’s fine kung unli time. 🙂

  3. Baka strategy lang yan.. chaka ang outfit.. hindi appropriate sa okasyon.. pero pagdating nang MU which matters the most.. booom! Mapanganga na naman tayo ulit hehe..

  4. Children’s foundation ang pinuntahan niya, di naman red carpet event.
    Sana nag jeans and simple white shirt na lang siya, mas appropriate and classy pa tingnan instead of that disastrous green gown 🤦🏻‍♂️
    We get it MUP bosses, you don’t like her, hence your consistent tacky styling 😅
    Rabiya, you should style yourself na lang.

    • @ Raf Hindi siya gusto?… So, FrontRow ang nagtakda, as major sponsor & Finals judge?

      Kung ganu’n, how did FrontRow arrive at the decision to get her in particular? I recall a comment noon, to the effect that “talaga’ng hina-hype siya ng FrontRow, pero wala talaga (dating?)…”.

      Like BBP nga naman, with their regulation insignia top and jeans during casual activities… Pero ako, OK lang na ganito sans the “mine sweeper” (refer to my comment to @ Cool Brew, below). If I were those kids (whom I will assume are orphans, or is this a day-care?), dressed up special she certainly registers as VIP and I would appreciate her effort to go that extra mile. It’s like dressing up for a job interview or for good friends coming for a long-overdue visit – you show you VALUE THEM. 🙂

  5. palakasin mo mga butu buto mo ineng
    nag blend in ka lang sa mga bagets dito

    neneng nene

    lalamunin ka ng buo sa MU stage sa 2021

  6. The styling is not appropriate for visiting children. Like what others said, a denim, shirt or blouse and rubber shoes will do. Merry Christmas everyone!

  7. To her styling team. Pls make her clothes one size smaller. Since she is attending a charity for children they should have let her wear sneakers and comfortable wear rather than a dress that sweep the floor. Good luck dear I do hope they find the best look for you .

  8. Her best styling moment was the prelim interviews for MUP . She looked fresh and modern . I hope she recaptures the magic .

    • Something is wrong in the face department and the styling
      I can’t even call her pretty
      And the way she carries herself

      She lacks finesse

      • @ Fabian Reyes Sir, could you give us someone from the updated roster of MU 2020 candidates who, for you, fits the bill? Beautiful, classy, and sophisticated. So we can have a yardstick. So we will have some kind of reference point. It might be of help to her team… Thank you. 🙂

      • (cont.)

        There is one candidate who might fit your description of “not-provincial”. Like ROM, looks “Neneng”, but au contraire. In fact, she brings a thoroughly international flair! Better yet, said candidate has expressed, in a recent interview with Delfin Lara, the desire to room up with our bet. Tomorrow, watch PN’s and you’ll meet her, po. 🙂

      • IKAW ANG PANGIT NA HUKLUBAN KA!!!!!! ANG SAMA SAMA MONG HAYOP KA!!!!!!! DAPAT IKAW ANG BINARIL NI NUEZCA ANIMAL KA!!!!!!! HAYOP KA SA LAHAT NG HAYOP!!!!!

  9. Floor sweeper dresses aren’t in vogue at this time when we could pick up things that might be a health threat. Merry Christmas and cheers! Nice PR move

    • @Cool Brew, that’s how critiques should be– polite and subtle, but constructive. Anyway, as with Rabiya, let us all bring Christmas cheer to children, the innocent inheritors of the world’s New Normal. This is a Christmas like no other and let us all hope that no more pandemic will devastate humankind.

    • @ Cool Brew Mine sweeper came to mind. You know. The kind that clears the way for ships. 🙂

      Enjoy your island Yuletide!

  10. With due respect, they need to change whoever makes her wardrobes.
    She’s been wearing hideous outfits since the day she was crowned.

    • @ Cherokee You know what’s REALLY bordering-on-hideous (and NOT ROM’s wardrobe)?

      ASEAN neighbor’s literally-inspired NatCos. It looks like seaweed made garish by (beep!). (sigh)

      Pinilit ang tricolor nila. Ta’s, gauzy-pale pa ang rendering. They MUST choose ONE of the three only! It looks like it’s aiming to bag the Raina do Carnivale Desfile subtitle. 😦

      (E-D-I-T, po. PULL BACK. Refine. Distill. There’s still plenty of time.)

      (Ning’s “White Elephant” was better. You really felt the animal’s anima.)

      • Madam Flor,

        Ain’t talking about Asian neighbors costume.
        Am talking about the way they’re dressing up Rabiya.
        Am no expert in such, but my goodness, they should be looking into
        appropriateness of the way they prepare her, in terms of outfit, looks
        and styling.

        Rabiya’s very raw yet fresh, young yet determined, innocent yet beautiful.
        The way they’re presenting her is just unglamorous, disconnected, unfocused
        and with no consistency. Unflattering on many occasions.
