The reigning winners
Binibining Cebu 2018 to Celebrate the Story of the Cebuana this Friday
Cebu will witness a spectacle it has never seen before during the crowning of the next Binibining Cebu on October 19, Friday, in the Pacific Grand Ballroom of the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.
The opening production tells the story of the Cebuana through the decades. Over 150 individuals are set to carry out performances on a backdrop conceptualized by design genius Kenneth Cobonpue. The stage will utilize digital technology provided by Epson for the first time in Cebu with direction and choreography by Victor Cuenco. With music curated by Barney Borja and sound mastered by Monching Payumo, the scoring features the 30-piece Cebu Philharmonic Orchestra, the 15-piece Bogo rondalla, the 10-man Lupon anduyo percussion ensemble and the Primiero choral group. The performers are proudly Cebuano including Luke Mejares, Missing Filemon, Jewel Villaflores, and Kenneth Corvera. The different aspects of today’s Cebuana will emerge as she sashays in swimwear by Solti Activewear and in evening gowns by internationally-acclaimed fashion designer Cary Santiago with shoes and accessories by Shandar.
Be sure not to miss this extraordinary celebration of Cebuano creativity, beauty, and talent as the country’s biggest pageant draws to a close. Doors open at 6:00 PM. Tickets are priced at Php3,000, Php2,000, Php1,500, Php1,000 and general admission at Php500.

Just as I predicted, Christine Opiaza took it all the way to the top and never held back. She was crowned Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 at the end of the pageant finale inside Newport Performing Arts Theater inside Resorts World Manila. She succeeded 2015’s Tim Alsowyed. 1st Runner Up is Regine Anillo, while Ivy Tapic (another predicted Top 3 finisher
) took 2nd Runner-Up.
Opiaza also won Special Awards such as Best in Creative Posing and Miss Personality by Spectrum Med.
Congratulations to the three winners!

Tonight is the night for Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016!
I selected eight (8) sexy stunners to give the Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 title a good fight
This is judgment night for Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila. And instead of picking a Top 10 or Top 12 among the thirty (30) competitors for the crown (currently being held by MPE2016 contestant Ma. Fatima “Tim” Alsowyed
), I opted to share just eight (8) who – in my opinion – stood out during the Pre-Pageant where the Swimsuit, Creative Posing and Evening Gown segments were judged.
I remain solid with my Top 3 choices – Christine Opiaza, Ivy Tapic and Clarise Perez – since there will be one big winner and two runners-up after all.

Of course, spoilers are always waiting in the wings to steal the thunder from the front-runners. I am choosing Geri Camargo (a standout 16 year-old
), Sollaire Rallos (the openly gay candidate among the ladies
) and Rufaida Babudin (who has really improved a lot compared to her MWP2012 days
