A repeater and a crossover in one package, Emma Tiglao is
Many people are asking me if Emma Mary Tiglao is returning to the Bb. Pilipinas stage this year. My answer would be this – very likely. You see, there is still a bit of deciding to do because I was told that she is still negotiating to take a leave from work so that focusing on the nationals would be stress-free. Once that is over and done with, then get ready for her exciting return to Araneta Coliseum. She is now classified as both a repeater and crossover – having joined Miss World Philippines 2015 and finishing 4th Princess to Hillarie Parungao.
I have always liked the vibe that Emma gives whenever she struts her stuff onstage. She has this vibrant and seductive appeal that has been honed through years of pageant participation. If we finally see her vying for one of the crowns, I bet she will up the ante even more.
Your inputs on Emma, dear readers? 🙂

Mia Hernandez Howell for Bb. Pilipinas 2017
Mia (leftmost) with Vianca Marcelo and your blogger during MWP2015
And the fencer is back! Mia Alysson Hernandez Howell will show that she has the guts and confidence more than any sable, foil or epee events sha may have mastered in the past. And this articulate beauty will turn the heat more than ever with her excellent communication skills and expressive self once the pressure to do Q&A becomes a battle of wits and reasoning.
Mia joined Bb. Pilipinas 2015 and signed up for Miss World Philippines 2015 afterwards. She has the 2nd Princess crown to be proud of. But more than a princess she dreams of herself to be. A Queen’s title is what she is aiming for. And once she sets her eyes on the prize, there’s no stopping this KF bet in making her second appearance on the Bb. Pilipinas stage more fulfilling.
In the meantime, here is Mia’s fun video from Bb. Pilipinas 2015.

Good luck to you, Mia! 🙂
From Bulacan, Vianca Louise Marcelo will go for Bb. Pilipinas 2017

Vianca Louise Marcelo is a winsome Bulakenya
who is a relatively familiar pageant face by way of her participation in both Miss World Philippines 2015 and Reyna ng Aliwan 2015 (where she was the Singkaban Festival Queen
). She has been steadily plotting her game plan for the nationals with Kagandahang Flores. And by now, she is more than ready to plunge into the biggest challenge of her career in beauty contests.
Vianca is always brimming with confidence. She knows what it takes to impress people around her and would not show any sign of reluctance should screenings require passing through the dreaded Q&A right away.
Good luck in becoming a Binibini, Vianca! 🙂

Miss World Philippines 2015 Hillarie Parungao with boyfriend Bill Castañeda
During the Miss World Philippines send-off for Catriona Gray the other afternoon, her predecessor came in full support and to extend her warm wishes for our US-bound Queen.
Miss World Philippines 2015 and Miss World 2015 Top 10 Hillarie Danielle Parungao came dressed in an eye-catching white number that complemented the outfit of her companion who happens to be boyfriend Bill Castañeda.
Bill & Hillarie. It became a delightful piece of small talk about how I would call them in jest as the “Asian Clintons”. But kidding aside, their relationship is still relatively new and we can only wish their togetherness to grow stronger in the months to come.
Truly, Hillarie’s glow is unmistakeable. Don’t you agree, dear readers? 😉
Lovebirds Bill and Hill
Miss World Philippines 2015 Hillarie Parungao as made up by Carissa Cielo Medved for Bragais Brides
Miss World Philippines 2015 Hillarie Parungao still has at least three (3) full months remaining in her reign. It could go over if the national finals of Miss World Philippines 2016 will be scheduled come October. Regardless, she is still enjoying the best of both modelling and fulfilling her responsibilities as a reigning titleholder. She was recently chosen as one of the faces of Bragais Brides. And public appearances (like the Lumina Event Launch late last month
) and TVCs still keep her busy. Of course, the anticipation as to who will succeed her and become our Miss World 2016 rep hangs over her daily routine. That’s the cycle of pageantry at work.
But let’s allow Hillarie to be the happiest that she can be till she passes the crown to the next. I know that her love life is also doing fine. So from late September till mid-October, that will be the time to rechannel our focus on the 2016 batch. 🙂
MWP2015 Hillarie Parungao in her latest TVC
And you thought Miss World Philippines 2015 Hillarie Parungao is avoiding the limelight nowadays? Not on TV, I should say. In fact, her latest TV commercial for Nestlé Yogurt started airing recently. And she is in the lead alongside character actress Cai Cortez.
TVCs and Print Ads are really the best media exposures of Hillarie even before becoming our Miss World 2015 representative. She has done a lot to say the least. Her lovely face is simply emchanting on the small screen.
Watch the commercial now. 🙂

Miss World Philippines 2015 Hillarie Parungao and Miss World 2015 Mireia Lalaguna
It’s interesting how solid friendships are developed throughout the course of a whole pageant. And during the month-long run of Miss World in Sanya, China last November-December, bonds will definitely be formed among the 114 candidates who competed. Our very own Miss World Philippines and Miss World Top 10 finisher Hillarie Parungao clicked with Miss World Spain and now Miss World 2015 Mireia Lalaguna Royo from Day 1. And alongside Miss World Portugal Rafaela Pardete, they formed a good sisterhood that has extended beyond the competition, being constantly in touch with each other and all.
And with the important BWAP Projects of Julia Morley and Miss World Organization in the Philippines, I can only anticipate a future visit of the reigning titleholder which will give way to a reunion between the two BFFs – Hillarie and Mireia!
Meanwhile, our MWP was a sight to behold during the Mark Bumgarner fashion show at Dusit Thani Manila earlier this week. The two side photos in the grid above were taken from the said event. 🙂
