In comes Janica Burasca, Miss Cebu City in the ongoing competitions for Miss Philippines Earth 2012. This pretty Cebuana is out to do better than what her predecessor (Murielle Orais, Miss Philippines Water 2011) achieved last year. The 19 year-old is currently studying Nursing at the University of San Jose-Recoletos, although she ultimately plans to become a Physician someday, preferably a Cardiologist. But before that happens, she is more focused on making Cebu City proud of her performance in the competition. If and when she wins the whole thing, she might need to study more of the environment first before setting her sights on Medicine. 😉
So we’re over and done with Bb. Pilipinas 2012. Let’s move now to Miss Philippines Earth 2012. After Carousel Productions held their Press Presentation right in the middle of all the BBP frenzy, I was never able to blog about that event anymore. Anyways, check out the following contenders…

Photographic proofs tell us that the Philippines does not run out of gorgeous Filipinas joining beauty pageants. Just consider the 50 Official Candidates (only 48 are shown updated above) of Miss Philippines Earth 2012. I’m actually near-impressed with the roster this year. In fact, if not for the middling heights of most and still-unpolished qualities of some, I would say that this batch can go head-to-head with either Bb. Pilipinas or Miss World Philippines on any given day. But then again, I might be going too far singing with my praises. Let’s just follow the ladies up until the coronation night on May 27 at the SM Mall of Asia Center Stage, to be aired on a slightly delayed telecast over at ABS-CBN.
At this point, I am liking Dianne Dreyfus of Bacolod City, Maricel Manson of Candon City, Glenna Christina Duch of Negros Oriental, Ina Dominica Guerrero of Daraga and Samantha Purvor of San Juan City.
Who are your types so far? 😉
