Overdue Post: Mutya ng Pilipinas

This is a super late post but I just feel like sharing some photos. This happened last AUgust 12 at the UP Theater.

Congratulations to the winners:


Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia Pacific: #29 Camille Guevara (who got a lot of special awards also and she seemed to be the judges' favorite, even if she didn't answer perfectly in the Q&A)

Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International: #25 Rizzini Alexis Gomez (who had the best answer in the Q&A but I guess she didn't win as the grand winner because she's good in answering tourism-related questions, thus her title)

Mutya ng Pilipinas Overseas: #10 Maribee Tiburcio 

1st Runner Up: #24 Emma Tiglao

2nd Runner Up: #28 Larah Grace Lacap

The show was hosted by Kristine Caballero, Markki Stroem, and Maggie Wilson-Consunji.

The official tabulator was Reyes Tacandong & Co. (RT&Co). Plus a long list of judges.

Anyway, what I loved about the show were:

 Maggie Wilson's outfit (www.haute-affair.com)

 Markki Stroem and his own version of "Call Me Maybe"

 The super fabulous Ternos of the Top10

What went a bit off were:
  • The Japanese interpreter who wasn't able to deliver well the answer of the overseas half-Japanese contestant. Actually I've heard she speaks fluent Tagalog, but opted to get a translator to translate Japanese to English. Unfortunately, they both kinda messed up. Good thing, I can actually understand Japanese.
  • No teleprompter so I can feel the struggle of the hosts.
  • Funny Q&A with the Top10. Honestly, I didn't know if they were that nervous that they forgot everything in the world that could make sense, except the overused words and phrases: "hospitable", "natural resources", and "it's more fun in the Philippines" hahaha!
  • At the end, after the announcement of the grand winner, she was awarded with everything -- sash, bouquet of flowers, certificate...except the crown! They already posed for photo ops, the hosts said goodbye, and the confetti were all over; until Mama Rene Salud came running to the backstage screaming for "where's the crown?!?" That was so epic! So funny seeing the blank faces of people haha! Until last year's Mutya ng Pilipinas went out from the backstage with the crown, which she passed on to the new winner. I think she got lost 'cause maybe she was waiting for her cue, which was forgotten by the hosts. Haha but well, it already happened. Every show has its own share of misfortune.
But I had fun. Thanks to RT&Co. for inviting me. We got really nice seats:)

Thanks also to Mags for giving me and my friend a VIP Card very randomly while we were standing while chatting somewhere near the stage. I hope to shop there soon!:)
