Karina Cabiling’s first taste of national pageantry happened way back in 2008 when she placed as Miss Mindanao in the now-defunct Miss Turismo Pilipina (headed by ex-beauty queens Precious Lara Quigaman, Denille Valmonte and Karen Loren Agustin). This Davaoena took the opportunity to put her foot inside the fashion industry door and has never looked back since. At the moment, she is one of the more in-demand fashion models in the country with her beautiful face, exotic aura and good height of 5’8.5″.
Zoom to late 2011, and that is now. Pageant kibitzers and paparazzis are already shortlisting possible candidates for Binibining Pilipinas 2012. Karina Cabiling is always on the preferences of most. And why not? This girl, who is now 23, is a shoo-in for final consideration. Her background in modelling will serve the purpose excellently well. And who can ignore her gorgeous looks?
But more importantly….is Karina Cabiling even serious – let alone interested – to try her luck in Binibining Pilipinas 2012? She was already egged on to join the 2011 edition but did not push through. Methinks she just needs some pep talk and an extra shove to finally cave in to the call of duty. 😉
