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.
“Crème de la crème” means the ‘best of the best’ and “Premier Classement” means ‘first classification’. In the just started Bb. Pilipinas 2019, it would be extremely difficult to make early pronouncements as to who will win the six titles at stake.
So for now, I give to you the twelve (12) #Binibinis who made strong initial impacts on me. I took the liberty of not ranking them according to my preferences just yet. Instead, I am listing the names down according to their respective numbers in the competition:
Binibini 13 Aya Abesamis
Binibini 14 Leren Mae M. Bautista
Binibini 16 Denise Omorog
Binibini 17 Patch Magtanong
Binibini 18 Hannah Arnold
Binibini 19 Ilene de Vera
Binibini 20 Julia Saubier
Binibini 22 April May Short
Binibini 26 Emma Tiglao
Binibini 27 Samantha Mae Bernardo
Binibini 33 Jessarie Dumaguing
Binibini 38 Vickie Marie Rushton
My next post about the subject should be uploaded after a string of personal appearances from the ladies (including the Press Presentation perhaps) where the basis for putting one ahead of the others should be relatively more definitive.

Official numbers to follow.
The towering April May Short filed her application for Bb. Pilipinas 2019 yesterday and will return for her next interview today – the deadline for submission when many of the more familiar names and faces are expected to register.
She is definitely the #PrideOfZamboanga! Those long legs alone stretch like forever! Aces & Queens must be really proud of this national pageant newbie.
Binibini Watch 2019:
April May Short
She is not short (no pun intended) on either beauty or height. At 5’11”, she can tower above other comers with her commanding posture and stride. And her face is the type that shouts versatility. She can be as gentle as a southern maiden or as fierce as a photographic model-muse of any lensman looking for an inspiring subject.
She is also Miss Zamboanga 2018.
Can April May replace that achievement with one of the sought-after titles in the nationals this coming June?
