Your #Binibini24 Dindi Pajares is ready for a title when Bb. Pilipinas is!
Last year, your #Binibini24 Dindi Pajares has firmly readied herself for a victory during Bb. Pilipinas. But it seems that her time to capture a title that would catapult her bid to a national achievement wasn’t yet right. Will she claim the much-coveted victory this coming Sunday, April 30?
It’s so easy to fall for the charms of Dindi. The minute she turns on that 100-megawatt smile, the bright-as-a-sunshine disposition suddenly appears and you know that she can easily melt your heart even more once the caring and people-centered attitude starts reeling anyone in. She has an undeniable glow that attracts, coupled with a soft-spoken self, a shapely frame and sparkling eyes.
Is Dindi ready for the big win in your eyes, dear readers? I have always placed her under my radar for the longest time. And while she may have stalled quite a bit somewhere in the middle of competition period, she has restored the fighting heart that describes the soul of a potential winner. And a bit of fun obervation. Compared to 2016 when she would shout her province of origin (Bataan) during introductions in an oh-so-flirtatiously mellow voice, she now screams “Bataan!” with zest.

Madame Stella Marquez de Araneta and I
During the contract signing of BPCI and Smart/Voyager earlier in the day, I was able to get pictures taken with Madame Stella Marquez de Araneta herself who was gracious enough to pose with all the media representatives in attendance. And she was such in high spirits after the event with the first-of-its-kind fan votes being implemented in a Bb. Pilipinas finals to automatically fast-track one Binibini to the Top 15 – a first in the pageant’s 54 year history.
Before the start of the busier days leading to the finals at Araneta Coliseum this coming Sunday, April 30, let me take this opportunity to publicly thank Madame SMA and Bb. Pilipinas Charities Inc. (Gines Enriquez and company) for the trust given to normannorman.com. Our formal accreditation papers will be handed over on Friday along with our official IDs as media partners. This makes my coverage partner and I filled with glee. It will be like our badge for all BPCI events from now on. 🙂
This is an historic partnership for BPCI and Smart|Voyager

Rehearsals in full swing for the finals
These are the days spent inside the Araneta Coliseum rehearsing for the Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Coronation Night on Sunday, April 30. Dressed in loose workout attires and sleeveless tops, the Binibinis are being choreographed to perfection. According to Gines Enriquez of BPCI, this is going to be the grandest opening number for any edition. Ever. And I believe him because ABS-CBN is deep into perfecting everything to achieve seamless proceedings during the live and TV telecast.
By the way, the finals will be hosted by Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and actor Xian Lim, with Venus Raj as commentator. If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, then please head on to ticketnet.com.ph or at the Araneta Coliseum box-office.
Just a quick sneak into the opening outfits with focus on the shiny golden Bragais shoes they will be wearing

Strongly destined for a crown? I believe your #Binibini19 is.
There was a small discussion going on in a few pageant sites on who is the one true standard-bearer of Kagandahang Flores camp in Bb. Pilipinas 2017. Is it Rachel Peters or Nelda Ibe?
Well, if we are really going to be technical about it, I know that Rachel is KF’s Golden Girl because Nelda is originally a product of KF Tarlac under Ef Taberna. But that doesn’t really matter because they are one KFamilia so whoever shines best in the end will be a source of pride for the group. Heck, both of them could even be victorious this coming weekend.
But let’s set aside those prediction-related statements between the two first and focus on this statuesque Fil-Brit lass who has come a long way since her days in Miss World Philippines and all.
Wanna see a bit of Rachel’s fun side first? Below is a video of the Binibinis’ guesting on ABS-CBN’s It’s Showtime where she was picked to be interviewed.
Rachel came into this competition with her eyes on the prize, something she has fully internalized even before she was pinned with the number 19 and dutifully committed herself to all the demands of Bb. Pilipinas. Truth be told, it’s not easy filling her shoes right now because the expectations are so high for her to deliver – not only from her beauty camp and loved ones, but also the fans and followers who have rallied behind her from the start.
This 25 year-old possesses the regal aura whenever she walks and presents herself. She also complements this with good communication skills that she uses with just the right amount of savvy in all types of appearances. But what’s most important is that she possesses the genuine dedication to serve the title if she wins on April 30. Actually, all the Binibinis are ready to serve. But from where I stand, she notches it up one level higher along with a string of other contenders. And that is where you start separating the women from the girls.
So who’s placing their bets on Rachel Peters? Time to share your insights about Binibini 19.
