normannorman.com’s e-invite to the book launch
Today, August 17, is going to be quite the hectic coverage schedule for normannorman.com. Starting at 1pm, there will be the Miss World Philippines 2017 Sports Challenge scheduled at the Victoria Sports Tower in QC where the fittest and the strongest among the candidates will stand out in a fast-track segment that mimics the same portion of the bigger Miss World. At 7pm tonight, the big launch of Mr & Ms BPO will be held at the Discovery Primea with the exciting unveiling of this year’s most exciting mixed search among the best and brightest in the call center industry.
And sandwiched by the two events is the much-awaited book launch of “The Crown” by Jonas Gaffud with his three (3) muses – Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach, Miss World Megan Young and Miss International Kylie Verzosa – leading the way into the activity.
In line with this, let me inject a throwback of sorts to a year-old interview Jonas Gaffud gave to PEP.ph which mirrors some of the content of the said book. Watch the videos by PEP now.
Miss Philippines USA 2017 has been crowned and she is 23 year-old Nicole Guerrero from San Jose, California who stands 5’9″. The new titleholder is a Global Marketing Coordinator of OPI who used to be a Campus Representative for Victoria’s Secret Pink at the San Jose State University where she majored in Business.
Among the judges this year are Miss World 2013 Megan Young and Jonas Gaffud of Aces & Queens. Expect Nicole to receive potential projects in the Philippines as she will be gradually ushered in to the local modeling and pageantry scene.
From all of us at normannorman.com, Congratulations!
Miss World 2012 Top 15 Finisher Queenie Rehman
Miss World 2015 Top 10 Finisher Hillarie Parungao
Miss World 2016 3rd Runner-Up Catriona Gray
Miss World 2011 1st Princess Gwen Ruais
Miss World 2013 Megan Young
When the new management of Miss World Philippines – MWPO (or Miss World Philippines Organization) held a media conference at New World Makati Hotel last July 7, five beautiful ladies graced the occasion and made the proceedings more special. They all have one thing in common – having won the Miss World Philippines crown in different years with Megan Young successfully clinching the country’s very first Miss World crown ever. The other four are Miss World 2011 1st Princess Gwen Ruais, Miss World 2016 3rd Runner-Up (and the reigning national titleholder
) Catriona Gray, Miss World 2015 Top 10 Finisher Hillarie Parungao and Miss World 2012 Top 15 Finalist Queenie Rehman. If only Valerie Weigmann was here, then the cast would have been complete.
Anyways, the support of the five ladies has given the new management a five-star touch given their unified presence. MWP National Director Arnold Vegafria and MWPO General Manager Bessie Besana couldn’t be happier with the positive turn of events. Hopefully, this year’s edition will be the best to date.
Finals night will be on September 3 with the venue still to be announced. And GMA-7 will be the Official Network.

Details for the BWAP will follow soon.
Your thoughts, dear readers?
It was a well-attended product launch at Solaire Resort & Casino that gathered Queens – Miss World Megan Young, Miss Universe Philippines Rachel Peters, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International Elizabeth Clenci, Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International Leren Mae Bautista, Bb. Pilipinas International Janicel Lubina, Mutya ng Pilipinas Janela Joy Cuaton and Mutya ng Bohol Glyssa Perez – and Kings – Mister World Philippines titleholders Andrew Wolff and Sam Ajdani (the brand endorser) – for My Daily Collagen Drink which is a 100% Japan-made product that has hit the Philippine market for the first time.
Cristian Imazu of Nizona Japan and Ana Perez of Global Wellness Enterprise partnered to give us the everyday collagen drink for health and beauty. It is formulated to promote a firmer, youthful and radiant skin, as it is fortified with Collagen, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin C, Elastin and Royal Jelly. It will be made available in wellness shops and health/beauty counters of popular outlets very soon! A 100ml bottle costs only P149.00 each so it is the most reasonably-priced collagen drink available right now.
Everyone had a pleasant time during the launch as even the Japanese partners introduced their other products that will definitely be hits in the local market. If you want to be one of the first to give them a try, visit http://ph.buyjapanproducts.com
In the meantime, here are more photos from the said event.
All in the June 2017 issue of Mega
Have you leafed through the pages of the June 2017 issue of Mega Magazine with Pia Wurtzbach, Megan Young and Kylie Verzosa on the cover? If so, then you would have already seen the feature on Rhett Eala and his collection called “Queen”. By now, one particular number in this group is very familiar to all you pageant followers as the green competition gown that Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina wore during the all-important Preliminaries of the 65th Miss Universe last January. It may have elicited some mixed reviews in the process, but you’ve got to hand it to the Designer for coming up with a creation that moves and sways so beautifully in motion.

Photographs do not give justice to the same, unless the shots are timed while the gown is moving like the wind. Just like the photos below.
