Last night at the CCP Complex in Pasay City, Nicole Borromeo – representing the Sinulog Festival of Cebu – was crowned Reyna ng Aliwan 2019 in the annual competition and automatically became the Festival Queen of All Festivals. She also gifted her province its 9th win, strengthening Cebu’s excellent record in the search. She effectively followed the trail set by the likes of previous titleholders Jamie Herrell, Karla Henry, Cynthia Thomalla, Rogelie Catacutan, Angeli Dione Gomez, Marla Alforque, Steffi Pearson Aberasturi, Sian Maynard and the late Rizzini Alexis Gomez.
It’s only now that I am posting her video during the Q&A in the Pageant Night that I chaired for Aliwan Fiesta 2019. In it, she explained why Cebuanas have continuously dominated the search since its inception.
Below is the complete set of winners:
Nicole Borromeo – Sinulog Festival of Cebu
Aubrhie Cindyrelle Carpio – Singkaban Festival of Bulacan
(Three) 2nd Runners-Up:
Leandrea Batingan – Tanglawan Festival of San Jose del Monte, Bulacan
Alayyza Izzabelle Tolimao – Agten Tufi Festival of Tupi, South Cotabato
Roi Neve Comanda – Panagbenga Festival of Baguio City

Her runners-up are (in this order): Poland, Indonesia, Australia and Brazil.
Congratulations, Jannie! This is such a well-deserved win for you!

Artem Levy on the pages of Cebu Daily News
My favorite Cebu-based Russian photographer, Artem Levy, is starting to go places – both literally and figuratively. Not only is he now known for wedding pre-nuptial shoots and the like, he has also gone into edgy editorial shoots and fashion pictorials that focus on both the subject and the grand-looking exteriors. Recently, he booked a gig in Singapore for a series of pictorials that gave a refreshing look for the Lion City in the background. And if that’s not enough, Cebu Daily News has given him a generous spread with accompanying article on its pages.
It’s only a matter of time before he fully spreads his wings and continuously forge ahead in his craft. And I can’t wait for the time when he makes Manila one of his regular work places as well.
And your blogger as an out-of-the-box model, perhaps? Wink. Wink.
Artem's shots in Extraterrestrial Polish
Singapore looks so much more enticing here. Of course, the model is gorgeous in the first place.
On the stairs, the lady catches your attention. But the overall look of the photograph is what caught my attention more.
And if you think Artem is exclusive for editorials, he is also game for shooting events like the one above where Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Janson (right) and Miss Tourism International 2013 Angeli Dione Gomez are shown being photographed by him.
The modeling agency that has carved a name for itself in the Queen City of the South has already opened its Manila office with Designer (and FDAP member) Dexter Alazas as Managing Director and (Singapore-trained Make-up Artist and former runway model) Luna Van Der Linden as Senior Booker.
AD Models Management – which jump-started the commercial and photographic careers of names such as Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson, TVC staple Vince Canizares, former Ford Supermodel of the Word Philippines Verns Buckley, Miss Tourism International 2013/14 Angeli Dione Gomez and Miss Earth 2007 Karla Henry – is holding screenings for potential models at their Manila headquarters – Fraser Place on Valero Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City.
If you fit the detailed qualifications above, send an email (With contact details) to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and you will be promptly reached. For quick inquiries, you can also call up AD Models Manila at (02) 5511829 or its Cebu office at (32) 2608006.

Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2014 Glennifer Perido will start conquering Kuala Lumpur today!
She should have left two days earlier, but had to take a delay because of Typhoon Ruby.
Today, Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2014 Glennifer Perido finally boarded the flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to start her bid for a back-to-back-to-back win in Miss Tourism International 2014 happening on the night of December 31. She remains optimistic that the reigning titleholder (Angeli Dione Gomez) will crown her as successor. And at this point, she is doing away with all the negative vibes and focusing on the task at hand.
Glennifer will be giving souvenir Philippine coins to all the candidates.
Inside her luggage (four (4) large ones all in all
) are the souvenir Philippine coins she will be giving away to the other candidates as token gifts.
Whatever the results will show, Glen will be giving it her 101% best #ForThePhilippines.
May the force be with you, Glennifer.
You are a good girl deserving of the achievement.
Do us proud. 🙂
See you in 2015, Glennifer!
Miss Tourism International 2014/2015 will officially welcome its candidates by mid-December
Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2014 Glennifer Perido is peaking at just the right moment
Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2014 Glennifer Perido knows fully well that she has an ultra-tough challenge ahead as she prepares to finalize her wardrobe for Miss Tourism International 2014/15. And the pressure is something that would bog down a pageant newbie, let alone an individual who is not prepared to take in the back-to-back-to-back mission.
But not Glennifer. She is ready. And instead of letting the two previous consecutive wins of the Philippines in the pageant take a toll on her poise and all, she’d rather look at how she can be the best version of herself in Kuala Lumpur for the competition. Add to that an underlying psy-war of sorts to combat the inflow of anxiety. She knows that there is no longer a target on her back because the other candidates will automatically assume that it would be impossible for the same country to score another top victory because that would be stretching generosity to levels of excess. And that is where our rep will come from. She’ll do her thing without anybody breathing down her neck. And if she stands out with her performance, then well and good.
A back-to-back-to-back is almost unimaginable. But not totally out of this world. If Glennifer has it in her fate to be the successor of Miss Tourism International 2013/ 14 Angeli Dione Gomez, then it will happen. 😉
