Recognizing the Beauty of Almost Everything…

I have expressed it HERE how I want to see Janine Gutierrez try out for Miss World Philippines 2014. It seems that Janine is too busy with her acting career for her to join a beauty pageant. Seeing this photo motivated me to “shout just a little bit louder” and Janine might just hear my plea.

Just Beautiful :)


It is (by far) the hottest Pinoy beauty pageant brouhaha for 2014. It made me hit my keyboard again during a self-imposed hiatus. The story has the ingredients of a top-rated teleserye plot:

  • Beauty Queens
  • Rival Camps
  • Backstabbing Allegations
  • Secret Audio Recording
  • Deleted IG posts
  • Meaningful FB posts

You must have been asleep if you haven’t heard about the audio recording that surfaced over the weekend. “Allegedly” (being the key word here), the ladies in the recording were Janine Tugonon and Venus Raj and they were “allegedly” bad mouthing MJ Lastimosa. 

I tried searching for a copy of the audio recording but I wasn’t able to find one (if you have a copy, it’ll be nice if you can share it with me – Thus, I am in no position to comment if the allegations against Janine and Venus are true. I am also reserving my reaction until such time that I will be able to prove that indeed Janine and Venus said something off against MJ. At this time when anyone can hide behind  an alternick, we can easily accuse others and point fingers just for the fun of it. However, let us try to be discerning and understand the facts before we react..

Me?!? I have nothing but questions…

  • Who recorded the audio? And who released it to the public?
  • Was this recorded during Bb. Pilipinas 2014? Or is this a video from 2012?
  • Who will benefit/benefited with the release of the audio recording?
  • Is this a camp rivalry as much as beauty queen bickering?
  • How’s MJ Lastimosa doing with all the issues being thrown at her? – I certainly hope that MJ will not be affected by the issue. Instead, focus on the bigger picture – the Miss Universe crown!

I don’t have the answers but it seems that MJ Lastimosa (herself) have something to say to her admirers and bashers. Here is what is written on her FB page:

“One must not criticize other people on grounds where he can’t stand perpendicular himself. – Mark Twain”



I miss Kris Tiffany Janson :(  I haven’t seen her in major activities after she was crowned. I was trying to search more information about Miss Intercontinental 2014 few days ago when I decided to write about the pageant through its numbers. I thought that it would be a very unique way to introduce the pageant to those who are not familiar :)

The year that Miss Intercontinental was born in Aruba


The most number of participants in a Miss Intercontinental pageant. This happened in 2005.


The  total number of Miss Intercontinental pageant. No pageant was held from 1984 to 1992.


The number of times that Germany hosted the pageant :)


Countries that placed seven times already but are still searching for its Intercontinental crown


Countries with the most number of Miss Intercontinental win – USA & Venezuela – with 5 crowns each!


Miss International crown for the Philippines

Let me close this by saying that I am confident that Kris Janson will bring home the country’s first crown!


Let us start our week on a very positive note. Sharing with you The “curves” of Mary Jean Lastimosa. Seriously, I can’t wait to see this bangin’ body on the stage of Miss Universe 2014.

 Whew! Those curves… Watch-out Universe!


Yomatsy Hazlewood captured the right to represent Panama in Miss Universe 2014  :) The ebony beauty was not the fan favorite going into the finals but she surprised everyone after clinching the crown. She was not my favorite either but I feel that she a lot of potential. She has a very classic beauty. With enough preparation, Yomatsy might just do well in Miss Universe later this year. The cheekbones, the chin and that forehead are making me hopeful.

Who among the Miss International titleholders from 2008 – 2013 is your favorite?

Looking back at the previous winners of Miss International, the organization really prefers naturally charming queens :) If I will be asked to choose, I will most likely vote for Alejandra Andreu of Spain(Miss International 2008). Her beauty is simply breathtaking :) I hope to see more from her.


We all saw Mutya Datul arrived in Poland for some activities related to Miss Supranational 2014 :)  Her visit was to help announce the official city host and finals date of the pageant this year.

In a glittering event earlier this week, it was announced that the 6th edition of Miss Supranational will be held on December 5  at the Hall of Sports in Krynica-Zdroj, Poland. This will be 5th time that Poland will host the pageant but this will be the first hosting responsibility for the town famous for its spas. The town is also a popular winter sport destination. Miss Supranational 2014 candidates – including our very own Yvethe Marie Santiago – should prepare for a very intense competition in a cold environment.

During the announcement party in Poland, Mutya was joined by former Miss Supranational titleholders. Miss Supranational 2010 – Karina Pinilla of Panama – and Miss Supranational 2011 – Monika Lewczuk of Poland joined in the fun!

I am not a fan of Monika’s styling and make-up. I prefer Karina’s exotic aura :) Good to see Mutya enjoying her time with her Supranational sisters!
