Ever since Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach won our 3rd Miss Universe crown, it makes any Throwback Thursday post for Bb. Pilipinas Gold even sweeter. The five winners contributed separately to the equivalent of a golden haul of victories with one Miss Universe, one Miss International and one Miss Supranational. Add to that a 3rd Runner-Up finish at Miss Universe and a Top 10 placement in Miss Tourism International Queen and the values become even greater.
It makes you think about the positive benefits of re-joining because experience and maturity really add up to the more progressive disposition of a determined candidate. Nowadays, being 25 is the most ideal age to want to win Miss Universe Philippines.
There’s nothing quite like having your Big Apple and relishing it in the company you enjoy being with the most.
Miss Universe 2013 3rd Runner-Up Ara Arida and Miss Globe 2015 Ann Colis are in New York City for a late Spring break where they spent some good quality time among themselves and even with Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach who took time out from her busy schedule to be with them.
Ara and Ann feel right at home in NYC. Who wouldn’t be?
Check out the photos below.

Ara Arida in Boracay. What beautiful sights!
Time now for the regular admiration post for my dear Miss Universe Philippines 2013 and Miss Universe 2013 3rd Runner-Up Ara Arida.
Just last week, Ara hied off to sunny Boracay for a well-deserved holiday break. Of course, word got around that she was indeed spending more than a few days in the island. And so, the organizers of Mutya ng Kalibo 2016 hurriedly made arrangements for her to become a guest judge in the provincial beauty competition. That really added more prestige because she joined Bb. Pilipinas International 2015 Janicel Lubina in the panel.
Back to Ara now. She was seen sunbathing and showing off that enviable figure to everyone who happened to chanced upon her on the beach. I wish I was there. I’d love to spend a little more than short moments of talk with this enchanting Binibini.😉
The Bb. Pilipinas 2013 winners produced a Miss Universe, a Miss International, a Miss Supranational, a Miss Universe runner-up and a Top 10 MTQI finisher!
Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach was the only winner in the Top 5 of Bb. Pilipinas 2013 who was not issued crown jewels being the sole runner-up. But it must have been written in the stars that she will eventually win and wear the best one after two years – the Miss Universe DIC art deco-inspired gems itself.
But there is more to Pia’s win that made the titleholders of Bb. Pilipinas Gold more special. It produced our 5th Miss International (Bea Rose Santiago), our first Miss Supranational (Mutya Johanna Datul) and a Miss Universe runner-up (Ariella Arida). In addition, this batch had the last recorded Philippine paricipant in Miss Tourism Queen International with Cindy Miranda placing in the Top 10. Tally-wise, this quintet edged out the equally-successful 2012 counterpart simply because it had more victories than top placements. It also eclipsed the reigning group in terms of collection.
Let us now reminisce on the crowning moments of Bb. Pilipinas Gold more than two years ago.

Ara Arida on a street in Brussels. Very editorial.
After Paris and Amsterdam, Miss Universe Philippines 2013 Ara Arida hopped to the Belgian capital, Brussels. And she was charmed by this city even more that she endlessly posed to the delight of the photographer who captured our beautiful Queen in picturesque urban settings that could very well make for a nice travelogue spread inside a glossy fashion magazine.
Please bear with my eternal fondness for this lady. She never fails to pull me in everytime she uploads a new photograph. There is always something exciting to look forward to in her next shots, and as you can see in the images here, there is simply no way you can ignore her magnetic charm and appeal.
By now, Ara is back in Paris for more of the City of Lights. And her fond memories of Europe will definitely stay in her heart and ours.😉

No, it’s not an official business trip. And no again, she is not in so much love (yet) to be swept off her feet all the way to the City of Lights. But Miss Universe Philippines 2013 and Miss Universe 2013 3rd Runner-Up Ara Arida is having a relaxing vacation in Paris and cities outside the French capital. She is enjoying the food, the wine, the cheese and the countryside. And she is in such an inspired mood everyday with the scenery, the flowers and all things beautiful in one of the most visited countries in the world.
And you can see just how much she is having a wonderful time by looking at the image below. Very refreshing.
