I can vividly remember the very first event when I was formally introduced and spent time with Col. Ricardo L. Nolasco Jr. during the selection of Official Candidates for Mr & Ms Hannah’s Ecotourism Philippines 2017 at Market! Market! We were seated alongside each other on the judges’ table back then.
I never expected that first encounter to reel off my regular visits to Hannah’s Beach Resort & Convention Center whenever they would host preliminaries of different national pageants. I’ve always considered Pagudpud to be such a far and remote place to go to. But after just two consecutive invitations to head up north, I got so used to the trip – be it by plane or by bus. The #CrownJewelOfTheNorth became like a second home, having spent six (6) workcation weekends there last year.
With that, I have grown much closer to the Proprietor himself – Col. Ricardo L. Nolasco Jr. – a down-to-earth man who has placed his unwavering faith in my talents and capabilities. And no event by Hannah’s went by without my presence (and coverage).
Up to this year when I got significantly involved in the nationwide Go-Sees, Grand Callback and Actual Competition for Mr and Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018 up to preparations for Miss Hannah’s World Tourism, he was always there checking on us – always the hands-on superior whose fatherly presence I regularly look up to with such endearment.
Now that Gov (as we fondly call him) has sadly moved on to be with his Creator, I feel a sense of great loss. Last night, I could not find the right words to say to his loved ones who are left behind. But this morning, I finally gathered the strength to face up to the reality of his untimely passing.

Mahal na mahal ka namin, Sir! Hinding hindi kita malilimutan. Ikaw ang inspirasyon na laging gumagabay sa akin at sa amin. At sana’y tuloy-tuloy mo pa rin kaming bantayan.
First of all, Happy 120th Independence Day from Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018 Jane Nicole Miñano and your blogger. Our young beauty from Caloocan City is getting herself trained and ready for the mission of representing the country in the inaugural edition of Miss Hannah’s World Tourism scheduled to be hosted in the country by November.
The photos here were taken during her contract signing as one of the new brand endorsers of Belmeré Skin Care Centre which will take care of part of her preparations for the international pageant. At the moment, she just started her Accounting studies at the De La Salle Araneta University. In between classes and projects, she will also undergo pageant sessions for the all-around polish.
Watch out for the eventual transformation of this beautiful lass in a few months from now.
