Behold your #Binibini27 Jashmin Dimaculangan in her Bb. Pilipinas National Costume created by Marvin Baloloy:
(Notes from the designer)
This costume is named DARAGANG MAGAYON or Beautiful Maiden. This is an interpretation of the female protagonist from the legend of Mt. Mayon. The fires surrounding Bb. 27 is as scorching as the passion between star-crossed lovers Magayon and Panganoron. Their fiery love might have ended in tragedy but it led to the rise of the crown jewel of Albay. A befitting costume for Albay’s reigning festival queen – Binibini 27.

From the Bicol region this time, we have a lady who has already been training with Kagandahang Flores (KF) camp for Bb. Pilipinas 2020. And by the looks of it, she could be well on her way to becoming a Binibini for the first time in her pageant career.
By now, Jashmin Lyn Dimaculangan has made the rounds of the important beauty contests in her hometown Province of Camarines Norte and the region as well. Her most important victory to date was the title of Daragang Magayon 2019.
Jash is ripe for the nationals, and her upcoming participation in the final screening of Bb. Pilipinas 2020 should herald her introduction to the big leagues. And I bet she will be a standout by the end of this week and have her name called out as Binibini. The only question that needs to be answered is – what part of Bicol will she represent?
Best of luck, Jash!
Akiko and Jashmin are KF-trained bets for Miss World Philippines 2014
Here are two more ladies from the Kagandahang Flores camp, and they are both gearing up for Miss World Philippines 2014.
There is Jashmin Lyn Dimaculangan. You might remember her as Miss Pasig City during Miss Philippines Earth 2014 and one of the contestants who actually possesses the sexiest body in the batch. She also won a gold medal in the catwalk challenge.
And then there is Akiko Centeno. She was supposed to be Miss Marikina City, also in Miss Philippines Earth 2014. But due to a personal injury, she backed out at the onset of competition and was quickly replaced by another girl.

What’s your take on Akiko and Jash, dear readers?
