Way back in October 2017 at Hannah’s Beach Resort and Convention Center in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, the video below was shot at a time when now Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray was still undecided on whether to push through with joining Bb. Pilipinas or postpone for one more year. As they say, the rest is now history. And as your blogger features our Queen as its most popular #HannahsRoyalty, we take pride in showing you the final cut of the video shoot that took days to finish.
And you might ask why Catriona? Simple, she was crowned Miss World Philippines Hannah’s back in 2016. Amd the title will stick to her for the longest time.
So now, I present to you Catriona Gray for the Crown Jewel of the North – Hannah’s Beach Resort and Convention Center.

Your #Binibini20 Catriona Gray is the candidate of Bb. Pilipinas 2018 who has spawned endless discussions in different pageant sites and message boards for an assortment of reasons. She could be praised to high heavens as the lady everyone wants to beat in this year’s edition or the contender or the Binibini who – of late – is now being criticized for being overrated and not necessarily the obvious pick for the highest title. Compared to the earlier parts of the competition when people are almost unanimous in saying that she is #1, the voices are now mixed in content.
So for reasons of starting a healthy discussion, let us hear your thoughts as to why she is one of the ladies firmly on top or why she needs to worry at this point when the Press Presentation is just a couple of winks away.

Practically everyone I ask about Miss World Philippines 2015 4th Princess Emma Tiglao is saying that this gorgeous Kapampangan lass is cut out for Bb. Pilipinas. Her beauty and peg are so tailor-made for the 6-in-1 nationals that she could very well slip into the one of the titles at stake without a major effort to do so. Bb. Pilipinas International perhaps? Why not? Hers is the type that sizzles onstage in an instant.
So what could prevent Emma from rejoining Bb. Pilipinas next year? Her contract with MWP? Possibly. But she could also do a Bianca Paz and not get tied down. Or she could wait for Bb. Pilipinas 2017.
Regardless, I want to see this girl in Gateway and Araneta Coliseum once again. 😉

During last night’s Gala Dinner of Miss World Philippines 2015 at the newly-opened B Hotel in Quezon City, the Official Candidates were all dressed to the nines as they were presented in their best evening attires for the Press and invited guests.
CQGQ’s Cory Quirino led the formal affair, together with reigning winner Valerie Weigmann and MWP2012 Queenie Rehman. It was a successful event that served as some sort of a Prelude to the Coronation Night scheduled this coming Sunday, October 18, at the Theater at Solaire.
Watch out for my predictions very soon! 🙂
