The twenty-six (26) Official Candidates of Miss Manila 2015
Miss Manila 2015 will be crowned on Araw ng Maynila itself, June 24
Tomorrow, Wednesday, June 24, it will be a non-working holiday in the City of Manila in celebration of Araw ng Maynila
. And at the PICC Plenary Hall, one of the twenty-six (26) contestants of Miss Manila 2015 will be crowned by reigning winner KC Halili in glittering rites to be hosted by Edu Manzano (with guest entertainers Sarah Geronimo, Mark Bautista, Jay-R, Rico Blanco and Ronnie Liang
). And in random order now, my Top 10 selections are as follows:
My Top 10 Picks for Miss Manila 2015, in random order.
In order of preference now, above are my Top 5 ladies

The ladies I would like to see zoom to Top 10 are: Regina Malana, Anna Karmina Conanan, Franchesca Diaz, Vientree Santiago, Christine Balaguer, Crissia del Atienza, Angelica Lopez, Patrixia Sherly Santos, Kaycie Lyn Fajardo and Teresa Clarise Perez.
And as far as the Top 5 finalists are concerned, I would be happy seeing a quintet made up of Anna Karmina Conanan, Regina Malana, Patrixia Sherly Santos, Franchesca Diaz and Christine Balaguer. One of them would make an excellent successor to Miss Manila 2014 KC Halili who has completed such a mission and charity-filled reign that would be relatively hard to follow.
Good luck in the finals, ladies. May the best Manileña win! 😉
Pageant tidbit: Did you know that the full name of the candidate tagged as the ‘granddaughter’ of Gloria Diaz is Franchesca Diaz Floirendo? Talk about having the surname and married surname of our two former Miss Universe titleholders in her name. The Floirendo part was temporarily dropped for competition purposes. 🙂
