This 19 year-old beauty from Austria is a very interesting subject to talk to, aside from having a unique mix – she is 50% Brazilian. She may be petite at just 5’4”, but loaded with fresh thoughts about her bid for Miss Earth 2017. Perhaps, her study background in Journalism – coupled with the desire to be a TV presenter – combines for a relatively more aggressive articulation of her ideas that a short chit-chat just isn’t enough to get her real substance.
At any rate, do watch my quick talk with Bianca Feliciano Kronsteiner during our stay at Hannah’s Beach Resort and Convention Center.

It took me awhile to post a blog entry about the latest photos of Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters, but the wait is still worth it. In fact, the topmost image taken by Beauty and Fashion Photographer Seven Barretto just blew me away. He captured our Queen from a totally different perspective. She looks like a modern Indian Goddess with a sophistication that remains her unmistakable trademark.
You can’t deny the fact that photographers have varied takes on their subjects. The Raymond Saldaña image is classic Bb. Pilipinas. But that Seven Barretto shot is pure amazement in my eyes.
Your thoughts, dear readers?

This is Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2017 Katarina Rodriguez as she appears on the website list of Official Candidates for Miss Intercontinental 2017 happening in Sri Lanka this coming December. Exact date to be finalized although early reports said that it will be December 21, shortly before Christmas.
What do you think of the photo used for the pageant’s official site, dear readers?
Miss Thailand Paweensuda “Fahsai” Drouin drew one of the first blood of sorts as she was crowned Miss Earth-Hannah’s during the weekend where ten of the Miss Earth 2017 delegates were flown to Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte as special guests of Hannah’s Beach Resort and Convention Center. Initially, the representatives of Austria, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Israel, Korea, Sweden, Thailand, Uganda and Venezuela attended the Blessing and Inauguration of the new 2-storey Building in the Crown Jewel of the North. Thereafter, a special mini-pageant was held to choose the one delegate who will serve as one of the foreign spokespersons of the renowned beach destination. They competed in swimsuits, evening gowns and Q&A before the beautiful Thai delegate defeated everyone else to be declared the best among them. Ninoska Vasquez of Venezuela and Lessie Giller Sanchez of Ecuador completed the Top 3.

It was a very enjoyable weekend for the ladies who were given the VIP treatment all throughout. They were able to try out almost all the amenities that the place has to offer. And for sure, it is one trip they will not easily forget.
