Yesterday, the Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2018 made a public appearance at the half time of a PBA (Philippine Basketball Assocstion) game at the Smart Araneta Coliseum to promote the upcoming Grand Coronation Night scheduled on March 18 at the same venue.
Here are photos from the said activity.
Fresh, clean and all-around beautiful. Do you like MJ this way? (Make-up by Gio Lazaro Flores)

Here is the latest look of Miss Universe Philippines 2014 Mary Jean “MJ” Lastimosa courtesy of KF’s High Definition Make-up Specialist Gio Lazaro Flores. This was how she presented herself during the PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) yesterday where was one of the muses of the competing teams.
Do you like what you see? I do. It gives her face a fresher and cleaner visage that typefies the kind of Miss Universe beauty I’d like to see in Doral Miami next year.
So the next question that begs to be answered is if she has already mastered the art of application on her own. Backstage at the Miss Universe, they will be very strict when it comes to having an outsider doing her face. After all, the pageant has make-up sponsors who can build up or break a contestant’s look in a matter of one hour.
I certainly hope for an affirmative answer on that. 😉

Proving to all and sundry that she has not allowed the ongoing controversy
to get into her system, Miss Universe Philippines 2014 Mary Jean “MJ” Lastimosa made a scheduled personal appearance at Smart Araneta Coliseum during one of the finals game for the PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) Governor’s Cup all styled and dressed up in one of her casual chic attires, waving to the adoring crowds and flashing her pearlie whites to the appreciative supporters who were also watching the basketball match.
Our MU2014 bet is focusing on more important priorities than otherwise. She knows there’s a lot at stake in her mission to win our 3rd crown in Donald Trump’s beauty spectacle.
And if means shutting herself out of all the negative vibes by maintaining distance from some individuals accustomed to her usually expressive ways, then so be it. 😉
The Bb. Pilipinas Official Candidates visited the Manila Bulletin office
Today, the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Official Candidates had their first sponsor visit when they went to the offices of Manila Bulletin in Intramuros, Manila. The employees of the company were all beauty-struck with the presence of 40 lovely ladies.
Lunch was served at the Manila Bulletin office
From there, they will just rest for a bit before making another personal appearance during one of the PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) matches tonight. It’s like a 2-in-1. They will be able to watch the game, as well as fulfill their duties as this year’s contestants. 🙂

One of the ladies who screened for Miss World Philippines 2013 is a talented speaker who, aside from having proven her chops as a radio jock for the FM station of DZRH, has worked as courtside reporter for PBA’s San Miguel Beermen and a quizmaster for UNTV: Campus Challenge. Her name is Zahra Bianca Al-Jaber Saldua, who I mistakenly tagged (my apologies) as Paula Estenzo in a previous post.
Zahra Saldua’s brief self-writted bio states that she “…studied at Modern American School from Kindergarden ’til the 7th grade. Studied at the University of Perpetual Help System-DALTA from 2nd year high school till college. I’m in my 4th year of college taking up AB Mass Communication and I hope to be like Diane (sic) Castillejo some day, or get a show on Travel and Living or Discovery Channel. 😀
I’m half-Filipino (Dad’s side) and half-Palestinian/Jordanian (Mom’s side). I’m a Muslim and no, I’m not from Mindanao (not that there’s anything wrong with that, I’m just saying since every time people find out they think I know how to speak the dialect, wish I did but I don’t :P) And if you’re wondering, yes, I am a practicing Muslim.”

The rugged/laid back vibe of this beauty – who stands approximately 5’8″ – may be considered by others as un-beauty queen-like. But it can also be this relaxed/spontaneous disposition that could make her stand out above the rest. And do keep in mind that she is quite an articulate conversationalist. So where everyone else fails to expound on a subject matter for discussion, she could only go on and on without running out of thoughts to share.
Let’s see if Bianx (as she is fondly called) gets officially in and how she will be transformed into a more pageant-friendly presence in Miss World Philippines 2013.
