When in Manila, Filipinos enjoy the sight of beautiful, graceful and intelligent ladies during this time of the year. For 50 years, we have been entertained and brought to much excitement as BPCI (Binibining Pilipinas Charities Incorporated) brings us the Binibining Pilipinas Beauty Pageant. I am quite happy and content with the turnout of events this year. But before I tell you the scoop, let me share with you who I saw at Smart Araneta Coliseum!
The Binibining Pilipinas title holders for the past 50 years had graced the event in their stunning long gowns. I was blessed to have met them during the cocktail dinner before the pageant. Most, if not all, of them were able to preserve their beauty and youthfulness. Despite the passing decades, they still looked like beauty queens.
All of them seemed to have come from a foreign (unknown) land, where people were born slimmer, much taller and with longer limbs. I was like a foot shorter compared to each and everyone of them. :P
It’s thrilling to see onstage all of the queens who have reigned in the past 50 years. Many of which were part of my mom’s, and grand mom’s generations. Hoping for another 50 years to come!
