I was supposed to attend the Miss Grand Philippines 2014 Pre-Pageant last night at the Emar Suites Events Place in Mandaluyong, but my birthday celebration was simultaneously happening over at the Intercontinental Hotel in Makati.
With Pageant Director John dela Vega and his team overseeing the complete proceedings, it was a thrilling event for the nineteen (19) Official Candidates as they competed and tried to outshine each other in all the scheduled preliminaries for National Costumes, Swimsuits and Evening Gowns. With the judges scoring their appearances onstage, the rankings have already been made for the ones who will make the cut for this coming Saturday’s finals.
For now, I am still locked with my four favorites – Kimberly Karlsson, Mary Theresa Gomez, Rosevemme Fajardo and Kathleen Matillano – but with one new addition – Jean Marie Feliciano. Let’s wait and see if this quintet can keep it up all the way. 😉
