During last Sunday night’s finals of Miss World Philippines 2017 at the Mall of Asia Arena, a reunion of (almost all) the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 winners happened when Bianca Guidotti (International), Kris Tiffany Janson (Intercontinental), Yvethe Santiago (Supranational), Parul Shah (Tourism) and Hannah Ruth Sison (2nd Runner-Up) became like the cheering squad for their baby sister Laura Lehmann who eventually took home the crown. It was a welcome sight indeed as they boosted the morale of their 1st Runner-Up.
How I wish MJ Lastimosa was there to complete the group.
When Bb. Pilipinas International 2015 Janicel Lubina, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Santiago, Bb. Pilipinas 2014 1st Runner-Up Laura Lehmann and Bb. Pilipinas 2015 1st Runner-Up Hannah Ruth Sison were brought by David’s Salon for their first overseas hair fashion shoot in the Affinage Australia HQs in Brisbane, little did they know about the actual difficulty levels of the project they signed up for.
In particular, Laura (according to David’s Salon Marketing Manager Lotte Villarosa-Agraviador) underwent the most complex (and cry-worthy) hair transformation as it took practically the whole day to achieve what the brand has assigned for her final look. I was also told that any hair care professional-wannabe cannot single-handedly do what a team of professionals toiled over. Hannah had the easiest procedure because the two-colored braids were not as complicated to accomplish. Yvethe had a relatively trying time as well but not to the point of almost wearing her out. Lastly, Janicel looked like she had the hardest-to-achieve hair, but it actually was not as demanding as the rest.
So now, may I present to you the Mermaid Hair Collection of David’s Salon in cooperation with Affinage Australia.
If you’re game enough, try booking an appointment at one of the flagship branches of David’s Salon to get the mermaid look and stand out wherever you go. 😉
This is the fashion show that was brought to Berlin and took the German city by storm – “Mindanao Tapestry | Neo Fashion Fusion of Renee Salud and the Mindanao Weavers” – and which was presented in a well-attended event last night at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila. Some familiar faces among the models stood out like Leren Mae Bautista, Angelee delos Reyes, Hannah Ruth Sison and Justine Gabionza.
Designer Renee Salud was visibly in his elements in this collection as the indigenous materials used for the collection really brought out Philippine Pride in the painstakingly patient efforts of the Women of Mindanao in weaving the fabrics used to complete the creations made.
normannorman.com was there and my coverage partner Joy Arguil took the photos and videos in this blog feature. 🙂
And the endorsement photos are now out! Shot in beautiful Fortune Island off Nasugbu, Batangas, five of our most beautiful Filipinas have been picked to be the new endorsers of a new slimming and fat-burning product – mySlim Detox.
Miss Universe 2013 3rd Runner-Up Ara Arida, Miss Supranational 2013 Mutya Datul, Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International 2015 Leren Mae Bautista, Bb. Pilipinas 2015 1st Runner-Up Hannah Ruth Sison and Bb. Pilipinas-International 2014 Bianca Guidotti immersed themselves in red and white palettes to go into beach beauty and Greek Goddesses modes for the said product. And boy, did they really give their most summer-ready looks here.
In Greek Goddesses mode this time around
mySlim Detox comes in Yerba Mate Drink and capsule variants that – coupled with exercise and a good diet – will help you achieve the sexy body you want.

During last night’s Cream Silk Transformations event launch, the winners of Bb. Pilipinas 2015 had a special reunion where Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach grouped herself once more with Bb. Pilipinas International Janicel Lubina, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental Christi Lynn McGarry, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational Rogelie Catacutan, Miss Globe 2015 Ann Lorraine Colis and 1st Runner-Up Hannah Ruth Sison. Only 2nd Runner-Up Kimverlyn Suiza was missing.
It was such a special moment for all reigning titleholders as the last time they were together, Pia was still Miss Universe Philippines 2015 and looking at clinching the DIC crown in Las Vegas. This time around, the group feels a lot more emotional especially that one of them actually successfully achieved the most difficult mission of all. And this batch of winners will long be remembered as the one that actually produced the 3rd Miss Universe victory for the Philippines.
Being Bb. Pilipinas 2015 1st Runner-Up is the peak of Hannah Sison’s pageant career
Bb. Pilipinas 2015 is definitely the last that we have seen of Hannah Ruth Sison as a pageant competitor. After being named 1st Runner-Up in last year’s nationals, her appearance in the much-anticipated finals of Bb. Pilipinas 2016 this coming March will be to turn over her placement to the next Binibini-in-waiting. After three (3) attempts with ascending levels of success in rank, there is nothing to be ashamed of. She will now pursue other worthwhile endeavors outside the field of beauty contests.
Read her Facebook message now that serves as the reply to people who have been encouraging her to join once more:
“…To everyone messaging me to please join again, thank you for your faith in me but I am old and done with pageants. I am overaged. 27 years old. So No i am not joining. Last year I was the oldest candidate. I do appreciate all the support but do not worry, life does not revolve on pageantry–meaning there are so many big opportunities outside and I hope I still get your support in the different endeavors I choose. Thank you and love you all!”
We will definitely see Hannah in other avenues of growth as an individual
Life goes on for Hannah Ruth Sison. Who knows, she might surprise us with an interesting re-appearance somewhere that will completely take us by surprise. And that could be where she will finally get her more comfy and fulfilling place under the sun.

When Lux Philippines launched their new line of perfumed body washes at the House of Lux event held at Valkyrie, four of our Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Queens were invited to add glitter to the affair. Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2015 Christi Lynn McGarry, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2015 Rogelie Catacutan and 1st Runner-Up Hannah Ruth Sison came to personally check the creation of Master Perfumer Nicole Mancini of Givaudan who mixed the signature scent called ‘Magical Spell’.
Below is a video from the House of Lux event held at Valkyrie. Watch now.
Looks like the 2015 edition will be pushing through after all
The pageant's Facebook status update yesterday
A photo during the last MTQI
This should be good news for one of the Bb. Pilipinas 2015 runners-up after the organizers of Miss Tourism Queen International announced in their Facebook page thst the 2015 edition of the pageant will happen from October 28 to November 9 in Wenzhou, China.
So who gets first priority for the same? 1st Runner-Up Hannah Ruth Sison, of course. Not unless, Bb. Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) gave up on the franchise after acquiring Miss Grand International and Miss Globe. But methinks it is still with them.
Is it time to jump for joy for our potential representative? Maybe after BPCI releases a Press Statement naming the Binibini going to Mainland China more than a month from now. 😉
Bb. Pilipinas 2015 1st Runner-Up Hannah Ruth Sison should get first dibs for MTQI2015

Last Thursday was happy for both Parul Shah and Ann Lorraine Colis after the announcement of their overseas pageant assignments. It was long overdue for one and well-deserved for the other.
But how about runners-up Hannah Ruth Sison and Kimverlyn Suiza? Will these two beauties have their happy day as well? I really want to see them wear the Philippine sash abroad just like the rest. Gone are the days when at least the 1st Runner-Up would have something to look forward to during her reign. Are we pushing things a little too far in this regard? Don’t you think Hannah is also competitive enough to fight abroad? Or is there no longer an available franchise for BPCI to consider?
Hi! Norman here. When I'm not working, I spend most of my free time planning on daily blogs. If you will notice, I always make sure that a fresh topic comes out everyday - not an easy thing to do but it's all good. Thanks for dropping by and enjoy the visit!
