Competitions have become a part of the Filipino culture. The desire to succeed is so strong, we tend to bring it with us wherever, whenever, whatever it takes. The good thing about it, it is the essential paddle to bring us around in life.
Ilocos takes beauty pageants passionately. Organizers spend for grand productions. Seriously.
Norte, however, has yet to catch up with Sur’s lineup of past winners at national level.
In the Mariano Marcos State University Mr. and Miss University 2013, which I got to judge, together with TV Patrol Ilocos broadcaster Grace Alba, print and ramp model Ivy Primicias-Nalupta, businessman Handy Lao and Councilor Bumanglag, I was entertained. The parade of costumes was at Tan-ok level. Congrats to the winners!
Here are some of the photos.
