Another KC, but with her name spelled differently, bagged the crown of Miss Manila 2015 during the finals at the PICC Plenary Hall last night. Kaycie Lyn Fajardo – who is a student of Customs Administration – is the new ambassadress of the City of Manila as she will now take over the reins of last year’s KC Halili. She fought for the title till the end, with the strong competition given by her 1st Runner-Up, deaf candidate Christine Balaguer who proved to be a worthy opponent from start to finish. Other members of the court include 2nd Runner-Up Angelica Lopez, 3rd Runner-Up Franchesca Diaz Floirendo and 4th Runner-Up Jillian Urbina.
Congratulations to all the winners! 🙂

Miss Manila 2015 will be crowned on Araw ng Maynila itself
Last Wednesday, the twenty-seven (27) Official Candidates of Miss Manila 2015 were presented to the Press at the Diamond Hotel. An assortment of familiar names and faces – on top of new pageant joiners – paraded in front of the media representatives in attendance. One of them will be adjudged the successor of the reigning titleholder KC Halili on June 24 at the PICC Plenary Hall.
Here now are my eight (8) favorites. Hopefully, one of them will eventually take home the crown.

My lead quartet is made up of Jillian Urbina (remember her during Bb. Pilipinas 2012?
), Anna Conanan (she screened for Bb. Pilipinas 2015
), Erika Diaz (tagged as the granddaughter of MU1969 Gloria Diaz
) and Patrixia Sherly Santos (she has made the rounds of our favorite pageants
). Following the four are deaf contender Christine Balaguer, tall Regina Maala, even taller Angelica Lopez and former Miss Sophie Crissia del Atienza.
Let’s see if these ladies will step up to the plate and bring my early forecast to a steady end result. 🙂
In the meantime, here’s a shot of Miss Manila 2014 KC Halili as taken by Edmund Chua for Fabmanilaph.
