One of the biggest things that I miss during the entire pandemic is out-of-town pageant judging. Before the Philippines (and the world) screeched to a halt in early 2020, I was already scheduled for a string of invites to judge different local and provincial pageants. But all of that changed when the lockdown forced everything to just stop completely. God bless pageants like the Aliwan Fiesta Digital Queen that still booked me for their virtual editions for 2020 and 2021.
Happily, I started returning to it last weekend when I chaired the Board of Judges for Ginoo at Binibining Candelaria 2021. And if that’s not an early Christmas gift I was hoping to get, I received an advise earlier to get ready for next month’s Miss Kuyamis 2022 in Misamis Oriental. This should be followed by another stint for Mr and Miss Teen Quezon before moving on to Mutya ng Atimonan 2022 in mid-February.
I am looking forward to doing more of this in 2022. The travel is one accompanying perk that I also missed. So happy that the different pageant organizations nationwide continue to trust me in selecting their Queens (or Kings).
Wow, tito Norms, you’re on a roll next year! Just be safe always as we wait for your blogs on them soon.
Enjoy your trips to the Quezon Province, Sir Norman!
Congratulations Norman. What a better way to end 2021 and to start 2022. Cheers to more pageant judging
Congrats po Sir Norman!
Sir Norman, 3 gigs in Quezon Province. I’m glad you are involved in bringing the standard of pageantry a notch higher in my province. Hopefully someday, an MU, MW, ME and MI queen and Male Pageantry Kings will come from the province. Am eagerly waiting for Pat Babista’s rerturn to pageantry. Has Rein Villareal left male pageantry for good?
To answer your question, scorg, yes. He now lives a simpler life in Pagbilao.
Thanks for the update on Rein. I wish him luck in his present endeavors. On the other hand, I hope Pat Babista jumps into pageantry again soon.
I’m sure she will in a year or two
Congrats!!! Maybe bigger leagues in the future.
Travel indeed one the best perks for gigs like this. Must be fun to explore the Philippines doing something yu love.
@ Norman Gud Wed AM, Uncle.
Ang Mutya ti La Union, po? 😦
‘Yung recent na Mutya of Naguilian, puwedeng pang-Nationals! Begin featuring your 2022 hopefuls.
Will wait for that one
