Get to know your #Binibini20 Julia Saubier through her world travels.
If this towering (there’s a reason why she got assigned one of two numbers right smack in the middle of the pack) KungFu-trained halfie could visit every country in a map on her motorbike, she would. But that’s what trains, planes and automobiles are for.
Prior to settling in the country for good, Julia was like your typical citizen of the world. She finished a degree in Social Research and Media Policy #MagnaCumLaude at the New York University Abu Dhabi that allowed her to do coursework in Budapest, Hamburg, Istanbul, Jerusalem, Kathmandu, Sarajevo, London, Milan, New York, Washington DC, Paris and Buenos Aires. If that’s not enough, Masteral studies at Peking University gave her the opportunity to learn Mandarin when she immersed herself in places like Guangzhou, Nantong, Shanghai, Tianjin, Xi’an and Macau.
It might interest you to know as well that she was an integral part in the production of a film – “Remnants of the Hive” – that had its European premiere during the 70th Cannes Film Festival.
But enough of the glowing credentials. Julia is now in the new phase of her life – a pageant journey that will require more than outstanding academic records and rich cross-cultural experiences to see her through.
She is not about to rest on past laurels. She is set to prove herself worthy of winning a good crown in Bb. Pilipinas 2019.

Bb. Pilipinas Universe 1982 Maria Isabel Lopez has come a long way from Lima, Peru to Cannes, France
First off, watch the opening number of Miss Universe 1982 and count how many times you can spot Miss Philippines Maria Isabel Lopez in the exciting march and rigodon-laden choreography of this edition.

Fast forward to 2016.
Now this is not the first time that Maribel actually made an appearance in Cannes for a movie she appeared in. But take note of how she actually got sexier as she matured. The video and photo comparison below of how she looked like as Binibini 15 of Bb. Pilipinas 1982 and during the recent World Premiere of “Ma’ Rosa” where she wore a green Albert Andrada number is proof that she was able to maintain her figure. Improved even, I might add.

It’s interesting to note how the figure of Maria Isabel Lopez even improved from close to 35 years ago today

Let’s support Filipino movies. Catch its limited run in select local screens this week.

Dear readers, consider this post as some sort of a commercial break from Bb. Pilipinas and everything pageant-related.
If you have the time, do watch the latest opus of Lav Diaz, “Norte, Hangganan ng Kasaysayan” (North, Border of History). The movie was part of the Official Selection of Cannes Film Festival’s Un Certain Regard section.
While the movie may not be your usual commercial/mainstream flicks like the monster hit “Starting Over Again”, it should also be supported by local film audiences. Let’s show our pride in the work of our kababayan that has reaped praises internationally and considered by many as “One of the Best Films of 2013”.
Take note of the schedules above
There will be a special screening tonight before the commercial run by December 4.

This movie will make you cry. That much I can say.
Iloilo the Movie took part in this year’s Cannes Film Festival and walked away with the Camera D’Or Prize for Best First Feature Film. It also won several awards (including Best New Director and Best Supporting Actress) in the recently-concluded Golden Horse Awards for Chinese-language movies.
Catch a special screening tonight at SM Mall of Asia. If you can’t make it, watch out for the commercial run starting December 4.
You will be proud of the performance of Angeli Bayani. And you will be more touched that she plays the true-to-life role of a Filipina nanny (Teresa Sajunia) who raised the film’s director (Anthony Chen) just like her own.
Watch it. 😉
