For this blog entry, let us give the spotlight to your #Binibini7 Shanon Jumaylh S. Tampon of Caloocan – the lady with the most interesting surname that is consistent with her lively/energetic personality.
Shanon could not give the most definitive origins of the Tampons in the Philippines, except for a good cluster of her ancestors living in the northern part of Cebu (Bantayan/Madridejos). Other than that, she is clear about everything else – her pageant plans in particular. Having joined Miss Philippines Earth 2019 and Mutya ng Pilipinas 2018 while finishing in the Top 10 of #Promedia’s Miss Bikini Philippines before Bb. Pilipinas 2020, she feels that past experiences have prepared her for the more rigorous demands of the competition she is presently a part of. She is braver and more confident. And even if she admits to the need of leveling up her communication skills even more, she pours her time and effort to diligently training in the aspect of Q&A and the like.
Advocacy-wise, Shanon chose to delve on the fight against animal cruelty – a cause closest to her heart. At its core, she has been taking care of and looking after stray dogs and cats on top of the ones living inside their house compound. Reason why she is excited about the regular affiliation of BPCI with PAWS (Philippine Animal Welfare Society) and the help it extends to the group.
This beauty is aware that competing against 39 other Binibinis can be daunting for a first-timer. In her own small way, she helps guide her newbie sisters on how to tackle the ins and outs of the national beauty pageant game. As for her 22 year-old self, she is determined to make a good impression up to the Grand Coronation Night. She is passionate about winning a crown that would give her the right to represent the country internationally. And she won’t stop until this mission is accomplished.
Below is your blogger’s exclusive interview with Shanon conducted yesterday.
Presenting the National Costume of Miss Philippines Earth 2019 Janelle Lazo Tee for Miss Earth 2019 as designed by my dear Patrick Isorena:
Janelle is wearing a National Costume that represents the “The Mother of All Philippine Festivals” – the #AtiAtihan – a feast held annually in January in honor of the Santo Niño (Infant Jesus), Held on the third Sunday, in the town of Kalibo.
The name Ati-Atihan means “to be like Atis” or “to make believe Atis”, the local name for the Aeta aborigines. The festival consists of tribal dance, music, accompanied by indigenous costumes and weapons, and parade along the street. It has inspired many other Philippine Festivals including the Sinulog Festival of Cebu and Dinagyang of Iloilo City.

Are you ready for this?
Miss Earth 2019 will start rolling in soon with the arrival of this year’s delegates who will vie for the crown of reigning titleholder Nguyễn Phương Khánh.
Below are photo grids of 70 of the almost 90 candidates who will compete this year, including our very own Miss Philippines Earth 2019 Janelle Lazo Tee. The foreign visitors will land in our shores this week or by the end of the month.

If I’m not mistaken, this is the first time that I will watch the Grand Coronation of a national pageant happening in the mid-afternoon. The novel schedule allows everything to finish even before dinner is served. A new titleholder will already be announced as soon as dusk settles in.
At 3pm later, Miss Philippines Earth 2019 will be crowned at The Cove in Okada Manila. Five (5) winners will step up and be recognized – Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Ecotourism. And the top titleholder will represent us in Miss Earth 2019.
See you there!
PS. Will advise accordingly if there will be Live Streaming of the Finals. Otherwise, the delayed TV telecast on ABS-CBN will air on Sunday, July 14 on Sunday’s Best.
