Other the main competition, one of the reasons why I am excited to watch a Binibining Pilipinas coronation night LIVE is to meet former Binibini. I feel happy seeing the ladies that I cheered for when they competed before. It is bittersweet though realizing that they are still gorgeous years after they competed. I am just envious how these ladies managed to stop the ageing clock and they looked as if they just competed yesterday.
In the finale of Binibining Pilipinas 2014 last Sunday, I was very fortunate enough to be seated in the beauty queens area. YES! I was in the left portion (facing) the stage, three or four seats away 🙂 It was a very good seat location as I was able to chit-chat with some of the most beautiful Filipinas 🙂
My apologies for the quality of the photos, there were really a lot of “pushing” in the red carpet that I wasn’t able to check if it was a decent shot or not! Hahahaha!
Before the pageant started, I had my dinner first expecting a loooong night with my beauty queen and beauty pageant blogger friend Joyce Burton (Bb. Pilipinas Universe 1985) of Adventures of a Beauty Queen. She was with her husband Sir Ron Titular – a very fine gentleman who I featured here! We were joined by another beauty pageant enthusiast friend of Ms. Joyce! It is always nice to see Ms. Joyce and Sir Ron. Ms. Joyce was in her usual self – beautiful and vibrant 🙂
