The Live Coronation Event of Miss Kuyamis 2021 went without a hitch as the organizers were able to stage a Finals which – even if a far cry from the all-out grand staging of the past four editions – was still successfully completed to the delight of everyone who followed the competition.
Congratulations to Dannah Joy R. Tempra of Jasaan for winning the title. She will now get the chance to represent the province in a national pageant to be announced soon.
Her court includes:
1st Runner-Up Katheryn Tan Guipetacio of Sugbongcogon
2nd Runner-Up Princess Nicole Segundo of Naawan
3rd Runner-Up Angeliza Navajo of Claveria
4th Runner-Up Alyssa Marie Cordova of Gitagum
The judges- Karan Singhdole, Angelee delos Reyes, Leren Mae Bautista, Manny Halasan and Carlo Pasion
I was actually invited by the LGU to be one of the judges this year. But due to personal travel restrictions I had to follow due to my senior mom who stays with me, I had to pass up on the chance and instead, asked my friend – Designer Manny Halasan – to take over. After all, he is my namesake. (I am Norman, he is Normannie)
Kudos to the entire Province of Misamis Oriental, Governor Bambi Emano and the ExploreMisOr Tourism Office!

Pleased to share with you Episode 2 of Pageantry Norms Season 3 – “Dressing Up The Binibinis” – where my guests included Bb. Pilipinas National Costume Designers Edwin Uy, Rian Fernandez, Dee Jay Abustan and Manny Halasan.
Do watch now.
Behold your #Binibini8 Meiji Cruz of Valenzuela in her Bb. Pilipinas National Costume created by Manny Halasan:
The National costume is inspired by #Lakapati, Goddess of agriculture and fertility.
Lakapati literally means “giver of food” and prosperity. She promotes abundance in the field and crops and she protects farm animals from disease. She is a symbol of harvest, thanksgiving, and protection.
The wings design is inspired by the dragon fly which means new beginning.
The gown is made of French lace with brass metal works pearls rhinestones and Swarovski crystals.

A virtual Santacruzan it will be for Bb. Pilipinas 2020. Because of the pandemic crisis, the Binibinis will have to be dolled up off-site and presented as sagalas online. It takes some getting used to, but this is already a sneak peek into the new normal – the BPCI way.
Below are three more ladies to feast your eyes on.

Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray got first dibs in actually holding the new crown made by Mouawad. But very soon, one of the 90 candidates around her will be the first to wear it as the new titleholder.
By the way, Catriona wore a Manny Halasan gown during the unveiling of the crown.
In the meantime, here are newly-posted photos of Queen Cat taken by Fadil Berisha.

Manny Halasan made the new Miss World Philippines crown
During the unveiling
During the just concluded Miss World Philippines 2017 Charity and Gala Night, the new crown has been finally shown to the attending guests with Miss World 2013 Megan Young along with Hillarie Parungao, Valerie Weigmann, Queenie Rehman, Arnold Vegafria and Bessie Besana.
According to its creator – Designer Manny Halasan – “it is made of pure silver coated with white gold. The stones are signity, blue sapphires and real pearls.” It was also designed in collaboration with Megan Young herself.
I’m definitely liking this new one. Your thoughts, dear readers?
Some of the candidates during the Charity and Gala Night
Best in Regional Costume Crystal Alday of Camarines Sur
1st Runner-Up Alyssa Joreen Reyes of Lemery, Batangas
2nd Runner-Up Nicole Kristel Losloso of Southern Luzon
All in one frame now, the three winners of the Regional Costume Competition of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2017
Last night’s Regional Costume Competition of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2017 at The Plaza of Resorts World Manila showed how world-class the talent of the Filipino designers are with the thirty candidates parading in attires that could only be described as inspiring and awe-inspiring.
Designer Louis Pangilinan was the big winner as his creations won top spot and 1st Runner-Up courtesy of Crystal Rosehelly Alday of Camarines Sur and Alyssa Joreen Reyes of Lemery, Batangas respectively. 2nd Runner-Up Nicole Kristel Losloso of Southern Luzon was dressed up in a painstakingly finished output from Quezon-based Jojo Alidio.
They finished on top, but I have to doff my hat as well to the other creative geniuses who shared their talents like Edwin Uy, Leo Almodal, Sony Boy Mindo, Manny Halasan, Rian Fernandez, Jun-G Candelario, John Cliff, Cheistopher Ledesma and more.
I know that the hardworking Designers who created the fabulous National Costumes for the Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2017 toiled on their respective works so it is but fitting that we give credit to each one of them.
Let’s continue with Binibinis 31-40 dressed up by Francis Libiran, Pablo Mendez III, Julius Ornum, Nat Manilag, Arnu Camay, Manny Halasan, Marco&Oyama, Dave Ocampo, Benj Leguiab IV and Rian Fernandez as officially photographed by Raymond Saldaña below.
