I was very fortunate to see the candidates in the flesh yesterday during the Parade of Beauties of Binibining Pilipinas 2014. Unlike the past years, the candidates were on a float and not a sports car. It was not individual as well. The group was divided into three – each group was composed of 11 or 12 candidates. I was a bit early and was able to stand near the starting area of the parade. And then I saw the floats to be used….
Saw the middle float and I immediately recognized that the crow on the float resembles the usual crown seen on the images of the Holy Child – which is greatly associated with Cebu City. Then my favorite Kris Tiffany Janson (representing Cebu City) rode that specific float. Is this the sign that I have been waiting? I don’t easily believe with some traditional practices but this is one thing that I hope will come true! I can’t wait to see a Cebuana on top “again”!
