Earlier at the launch of Ali X – the cool, hip and newest wing of Ali Mall at The Araneta Center, the 40 Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2019 made their first public appearance. The ladies really enjoyed the Art+LifestyleXInterest vibe of the place.
Below are some of the photos taken during the event.
Yesterday afternoon, the Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Talent Competition was held at the Activity Area of Ali Mall in Quezon City where thirteen (13) Binibinis performed their special talents to be considered as the recipient of Miss Talent to be announced during the finals on April 30. There are those who danced and showed off their vocal chops, while the others went off the beaten route and did – among others – taekwondo exhibition and speed painting.
Here are videos of some of them:
#Binibini17 Maria Camille Manalo and her taekwondo act

#Binibini40 Kristel Guelos doing what she loves best – performing magic tricks
#Binibini4 Jessica Ramirez showing off her skills as a speed painter

This coming Saturday, all roads will lead to the Ali Mall Activity Area for the Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Talent Competition
This coming Saturday, April 8, thirteen (13) Binibinis will showcase their talents in singing, dancing, speed painting, and martial arts, among others. And it will all happen right at the Ali Mall Activity Area starting at 3pm.
In the meantime, here are archived photos from last year’s Talent Competition to align this feature with the Throwback Thursday theme. If you will recall, Vina Openiano (first photo below among the performing Binibinis from 2016)

It’s an annual tradition. And the video above is Rappler’s coverage of what happened last year.
Riding on top of almost identical-looking sports cars (no Ferraris or Porsche models, of course), wearing beaded two-piece swimwears with a piece of dark see-through wrap-around on their bottoms for added protection, and with carnival headresses that would rival the versions worn by Bella (Dimayuga) and the Bellestars.

It’s the Parade of Beauties alright.
And it’s happening two Saturdays from now, March 22 to be exact, starting at 4:00PM. The route will take them from the Parking Garage South of Smart Araneta Coliseum and moving around Araneta Center with small portions of EDSA (around Farmers Mall), Aurora Blvd and P. Tuazon (around Ali Mall) in the trail before reaching the end point in the P5 vicinity of Gateway Mall.
The usual route of the Parade of Beauties
Get your high-resolution cameras fully-charged and ready.
This is one daytime event where true physical beauty will stand out. And I mean it literally. Freckles, stretch marks, pimples, hard-to-conceal scars, and all. 😉
Last Saturday, the talent competition of Binibining Pilipinas 2010 was held at the newly-upgraded Ali Mall in Cubao, Quezon City. Seven of the 24 official candidates participated in the special pre-pageant competition, the winner of which will be formally announced during the coronation night on March 6 at the Araneta Coliseum. Particular stand-outs in their respective presentations were Selena Antonio who performed a gymnatic-inspired number, Rachel Ann Bustamante with her innovative dance number that combined jive, tango and belly dancing, the baton-twirling Dianne Necio and Krissa Mae Kleiner in a song-and-dance piece combined with martial arts.
Here are the videos of the talent competition. You will also see all 24 ladies parading in front of the audience. Many thanks to ecurb of OPMB Worldwide for these clips.
