Congratulations to my girls!

Last Sunday night was the Coronation Night of the Bb. Pilipinas 2011. I was there with my friends to cheer for two of my close friends: #7 Angelia Ong and #22 Paula Figueras. (You may view my previous post about them HERE.)

The entire "barkada" was in complete attendance at the pageant to support Angelia. We were carrying huge posters of her, and we're screaming at the top of our lungs whenever she's on the stage. haha! I was also joined by our sorority sister Missy to cheer for Paula, since her family was seated really far from us.

So after the swimsuit ramp of the candidates, several special awards were announced: 
  • Ms. Friendship - #31 Samantha Purvor
  • Ms. Creamsilk - #26 Shamcey Supsup
  • Ms. Philippine Airlines - #26 Shamcey Supsup
  • Manila Bulletin Reader's Choice - #23 Luzelle Felipe
  • Ms. Talent - #26 Shamcey Supsup
Unfortunately, both of my candidates didn't receive any. Then after a song performance by Karylle, Princess, Sitti, and my Youtube idol Marie Digby, the candidates graced the stage with their long gowns.

Then the Top15 was announced. Unfortunately, my girls didn't make it to the Top15. After the Q&A portion (just before the announcement of the winners), three more special awards were given:
  • Best in Swimsuit - #13 Queenierich Rehman
  • Best in Long Gown - #23 Luzelle Felipe
  • People's Choice for the Face of Bb. Pilipinas - #7 Angelia Ong
 
Just when we thought that it's over...our candidate won a special award! We're so proud of our friend Angelia for winning People's Choice. That's one of the best awards a candidate could receive since it was based on the votes of the viewing public. We've proven that she's got a lot of supporters besides her family and friends. I would like to thank everyone who voted for her. Facebook and Twitter were also a lot of help since it's where we campaigned for her. Thanks everyone!:)

At some point, I think that if her award was given earlier at the show, the judges could have noticed her even more. An insider scoop stated that she's Top 16. See! What ONE notch can do! She's a notch closer to the Top15! But things happen for a reason. It's God's will for her, but I know that nothing can stop her in pursuing her dreams.

Angelia and Paula are both winners for me, for our friends, and their families. Being in the Top40 is already a great honor that's why I'm so proud of my girls!:)

Congratulations also to all the winners, most especially to our schoolmate Shamcey Supsup, who won as this year's Ms. Universe Philippines.:)

  • Ms. Universe Philippines - #26 Shamcey Supsup
  • Bb. Pilipinas - International - #33 Dianne Necio
  • Bb. Pilipinas - Tourism - #25 Isabella Manjon
  • 1st Runner Up - #27 Janine Tugonon
  • 2nd Runner Up - #34 Mary Jean Lastimosa
