Pia Wurtzbach’s Squat Routine


My exercise routine got disrupted when I transferred to Iloilo last year. Now, I am trying to get back to jogging and yoga but putting those rubber shoes seems like an herculean task. Then I saw this video of Pia Wurtzbach in my timeline reminding me that I should get my arse off and start moving.

This squat routine engages the core! Pia, for sure, is preparing for a swimsuit battle royale by making sure that those abs of hers are ready for Miss Universe 2015!

It is all HARD WORK ladies!

Rogelie is Ready for Binibini!


2014 was a Big Year for Cebuana Beauty Queens!

We had Kris Tiffany Janson and Jamie Herrell :)

If you think you had seen the last of CEBeaUties, then you are wrong!

This year, Cebu is confidently represented by Rogelie Catacutan who followed Kris’ footsteps and went to Araneta for Binibining Pilipinas 2015! Will this be the year that Cebu takes hold of the Miss Universe Philippines title? I think it is very possible :)

Binibining Pilipinas 2014 (4th Update): Scenes from the Screening


The official candidates of Binibining Pilipinas 2015 was reveled over the weekend. Since I was caught off guard with the rather fast screening process, I searched online for screening photos and will be glad to share them with you. Who among our Binibining Pilipinas 2015 candidates made a very good first impression?

My apologies as I can’t find the screening photos of other candidates!
Please feel free to leave a comment if I put an incorrect name to a photo…

Throwback Thursday (01.15.15): The Day I Fell in Love with Venus Raj


Today, I bring all of you to the day that I fell head-over-heels on Venus Raj. The moment I saw this photo, I told myself that this lady will be for Miss Universe 2010. I never looked back after that.

The rest is a beautiful history :)

Here is Venus Raj in her official photo during Binibining Pilipinas 2010

For those who followed Bb. Pilipinas 2010, can you remember the stress that we went through during the disqualification issue?!? I can only laugh remembering the time :)

Binibining Pilipinas 2015 (3rd Update): Trying to do an MJ and a Maricar!


Third time is a charm, they say! And we have Mary Jean Lastimosa to prove that this saying has a grain of truth in it. MJ finally clinched a crown last year after 2 consecutive Bb. Pilipinas outing – with the last a rather heartbreaking finalist position. That is all in the past now as MJ is currently enjoying her stay in Doral, Florida for Miss Universe 2014!

Mary Jean Lastimosa

Binibining Pilipinas 2011 – 2nd Runner-up
Binibining Pilipinas 2012 – Finalist
Binibining Pilipinas 2014 – Miss Universe Philippines

Looking back at the history of Binibining Pilipinas, MJ followed (almost) the footsteps of Maricar Balagtas who defied convention that time and joined Binibining Pilipinas for the third time. She also clinched the Miss Universe Philippines title.

Maricar Balagtas

Binibining Pilipinas 2000 – Unplaced
Binibining Pilipinas 2001 – 2nd Runner-up
Binibining Pilipinas 2004 – Miss Universe Philippines

As the official candidates of Binibining Pilipinas 2015 were unveiled over the weekend, four ladies are now officially on the Binibining Pilipinas stage to try and do an MJ or a Maricar :) They are back for the third time to (hopefully!) clinch one of the covered crowns. They are:

Binibining Pilipinas 2015 (2nd Update): The Official Candidates


In what I consider as one of the “shortest” Binibining Pilipinas screening, the official delegates of Binibining Pilipinas 2015 were revealed yesterday. Thirty four aspirants were named including several familiar names and faces. The biggest shocker for me was NOT the non-inclusion of Ali Forbes in the official list of candidates BUT the fact that she went through the screening.

Here are the delegates who will compete for the Binibining Pilipinas crowns.

No official candidate numbers yet… Will update this post once we have that information already!
