On the afternoon of December 29, Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2011 and Miss Universe 2011 3rd Runner-Up Shamcey Supsup will walk down the aisle to marry Lloyd T. Lee, the man she will spend the rest of her life with.
The Holy Matrimony will take place at the Church of the Risen Lord (inside U.P. Diliman), with strictly-by-invitation reception following at the Isla Ballroom of EDSA Shangri-la Hotel.
I’m pretty sure the entourage will include some of our most beautiful beauty queens to make it the most celebrated Binibini wedding – not only of 2013 but in a long while.
Best wishes to the sweet couple!

As you start your gradual return to normal life next week, Shamcey, let me take this opportunity to thank you for a wonderful reign and for gifting the Filipinos continued hope in the Miss Universe Pageant. By now, it must’ve already sunk that your achievement is something so big and encouraging that the candidates of Bb. Pilipinas 2012 have been spurred and ceaselessly motivated to fierce themselves up in hopes of approximating – if not exceeding – your Miss Universe placement. I’m certain that you would want your successor to follow up with a big bang. And I believe that whoever fills in your shoes will give her 110% to capture a crown that has eluded the country for almost four decades now.
The two Filipinas who re-started it all: Shamcey and Venus (R)
My selfish wish right now is for you to please help train, re-train and guide the next Bb. Pilipinas-Universe in her quest for the big one come December. I know that this is not too much to ask since the cause is not just for an individual but the whole nation. And with the added support from your ‘sister’ Venus Raj – who will be all too willing to pitch in more than her two cents worth – I can feel that a more successful campaign is in the offing for the next Filipina in line.
With these thoughts, I would like to reiterate my heartfelt thanks for bringing the best of the Pinay to the Universe and coming back with success. God Bless, Architect Supsup! 🙂

Between tomorrow and Wednesday (Brazil time), Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2011 Shamcey Supsup should be finally arriving in Sao Paulo, Brazil to compete in Miss Universe 2011. She has already spent more than a week in Bogota, Colombia where she underwent countless fittings, daily fitness regimen and pasarela sessions.
So what lies ahead of our dear Shamcey? Bright prospects, I reckon. This despite the fact that international beauty competitions can never do away with inside politics and the like.
Shamcey has been doing her homework dutifully well. She has the right discipline and motivation to give her all and come up with an excellent representation of the Philippines. But there is also the possibility of not exceeding or even matching Venus Raj’s achievement in Las Vegas last year. And there are several factors that may or may not work in her favor, depending on how each pre-pageant day unravels.
To this effect, 1969 Miss Universe Gloria Diaz (photo, left) has this message for our girl in Sao Paulo: “Do the best you can but don’t feel stressed out. It’s not a matter of life and death. Enjoy!”
And I couldn’t agree more!
If Shamcey wins the crown, let’s all rejoice. Otherwise, let’s accept the fact that fate has other things in store for her. 😉

Just yesterday afternoon, Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2011 Shamcey Supsup was given a formal send-off by Bb. Pilipinas Charities, Inc. as she leaves Wednesday for South America for a little-over-a-month-long journey which will take her first to Bogota, Colombia where she will have her final pasarela training and fittings for the Evening Gown and National Costume with renowned designer Alfredo Barraza. From there, she will hop on another plane for a 6-hour trip to her final destination -Sao Paulo, Brazil – where she will join more than 80 other dreamers in search for the title and the Diamond Nexus Lab crown that will sit on the head of Miss Universe 2011 on September 12.
What fate awaits our delegate? Too early to tell. But if her intensive local preparations under Venus Raj & Co. plus final polishing in Colombia are any indications, then she will surely give the other candidates a run for their money. The road to victory won’t be smooth, bumpy even. And if she is destined to make us proud in whatever accomplishment she reaches, then so be it!
Shamcey, nawa ay kasihan ka ng pinag-ibayong suwerte, katatagan ng dibdib at walang pag-aalinlangang pagpapakita ng tunay na kagandahan ng Pilipina sa buong mundo! 🙂

How’s our girl Shamcey Supsup doing in her training for Miss Universe 2011? Well, everything is being kept under wraps up to now, except for her regular Portuguese-speaking lessons at Berlitz. I’m certain that she religiously attends her frequent catwalk, make-up and fitting sessions with the pageant masters over at the Bb. Pilipinas headquarters. Thankfully, she remains effervescently beautiful as the day she won the national competition.
On top of this, she has been constantly guesting and appearing in various ABS-CBN (even ANC) shows to further hone her craft in public speaking, projection and all. From this angle, I trust that the network is doing everything possible to heighten her skills in public relations because it will count a lot once she joins dozens upon dozens of contenders in Brazil.
Personally, I still find Shamcey a bit underweight so it would help if her assigned gym trainer and nutritionist focus on this aspect within the next 30 days or so. But more importantly, the question that has been nagging the minds of her fans and supporters is this: Will she undergo a couple of non-invasive (or injectable) enhancements in Colombia before heading to Sao Paolo? Gut-feel tells me that she will. This despite her mother’s opposition to such. One thing is for sure. Just like Bianca Manalo, she will be staying in Bogota for a week (or a little more) to do final fittings for her evening gown and attend some pasarela classes to fine-tune her catwalk and posture on the ramp. Since the route is convenient and the flight from Bogota to Sao Paolo is just approximately 6 hours, this side trip is a no-brainer.
I am on the keen lookout for more of Shamcey’s development on a regular basis. Right now, she has not achieved 100% readiness yet. 80% perhaps? I would love for her to shine like Venus Raj despite the onslaught of raging beauties in the pageant. I know it is unwise to compare the two because they are completely different in looks, personal style and disposition. So what I expect to see is our representative get packaged as a fashionably-relaxed (Aussie-inspired aura if you will) gem with beauty that is more effortless and personality extra spontaneous.
Continuously hoping for the best for Shamcey! 😉
If you missed a recent episode of the talk show “Future Perfect” on the ANC Channel, then here’s another opportunity to watch the same and appreciate the beauty and intelligence of 2011 Bb. Pilipinas-Universe and Magna cum Laude graduate Shamcey Supsup as she guested with a fellow bright mind, John Gabriel Pelias (who’s a Summa Cum Laude), from the state university.
