This is the time to be merry. Ceasefire on negativity, intrigues bashings and all things unpleasant.
All our Queens (and Kings) – major or minor in title – have done their best to bring pride to our country. Let us continue to celebrate them instead of looking at where to nitpick or say something to pull down their hard work and dedication.
Merry Christmas to one and all!

Exactly one Sunday from this date, the finals of Miss World Philippines 2018 will culminate in the much-anticipated finals that will be held at the Mall of Asia Arena. And more than knowing who the next winners will be, I am curious to find out what new title/s will be announced (if the organizers are already at liberty to make them known on nationwide TV and social media).
As for the reigning titleholders, they have only one more week before handing away their national titles. Check out the interview below where GMA Network conducted a casual interview with Laura Lehmann, Win-Wyn Marquez, Cynthia Thomalla and Sophia Seneron.
Earlier in the day, the Miss World Philippines Organization conducted its screening of candidates for Mr. World Philippines 2018 at the House Manila. The good-looking (and nicely desirable) Filipino aspirants trooped to the venue where they were assessed by a panel headed by Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann amd Miss Eco International 2018 Cynthia Thomalla.
There is a good assortment of applicants who came – models, professionals, students, showbiz upstarts and previous pageant winners.
It’s still too early to tell how the actual competition will unravel for #MrWorldPhilippines2018, but the two aspirants who really stood out today have something in common between the two of them – Italy.
Marco Poli – Fil-Italian who at 6’3” is the tallest enlister today. He has a quiet charm all his own. But once he speaks, one can sense the no-nonsense quality of his answers. He is also one mean chef in the kitchen.
Former Mister Philippines titleholder Denver Hernandez – a full-blooded Filipino raised in Italy who is a force onstage and off because of his very masculine appeal, much like a discerning brute who mixes Pinoy suave with Italian machismo. He represented the country in the Dominican Republic during Men Universe Model 2017.
Let’s see if these two guys can sustain the marked impressions or allow the other comers to get in the way of getting closer to the titles at stake. They are shoo-ins to become Official Candidates, after all.
Today, Miss Eco International 2018 Cynthia Thomalla was named United Nations Goodwill Ambassador (for IIMSAM) by the General Secretary Mr. Romegio Maradona and Dr. Ismail Abdelghafar who is the Chairman of the Arab League in Alexandria, Egypt.
Given this new responsibility, Cynthia can now start her mission of promoting tourism, taking care of the environment and helping the poor.
Congratulations, Miss Eco International 2018!

Miss Eco International 2018 Cynthia Thomalla has stayed for so long in Cebu that many non-Visayan pageant followers must have concluded that she is a Cebuana. Well, she actually takes roots in Macrohon, Southern Leyte where her Filipina mother and German father have taken residence ever since moving from Germany when she was just a kid.
Last week, Cynthia made her happy homecoming in Southern Leyte where she was warmly welcomed by officials and given a grand motorcade around Macrohon. Here are more pictures from the said event, as provided by our Queen herself.
And our Miss Eco International 2018 Cynthia Magpatoc Thomalla has finally returned home fresh from her victory in Egypt.
With her upon arrival is Miss World Philippines Organization Head Arnold Vegafria and General Manager Bessie Besana. Rodgil Flores of KF was also at the VIP Lounge of NAIA Terminal 1 to meet up with our successful Queen.
Welcome back, Thia!
Mabuhay ka! 🇵🇭👑
