I actually didn't have any plans to write a post in my blog today but that changed the moment I saw a photo of Pia Wurtzbach (Miss Universe Philippines 2015) together with Valerie Weigmann (Miss World Philippines 2014 and Miss World 2014 Quarterfinalist). It's too seldom to see two reigning mixed-race (both are of Filipino-German descent) beauty titleholders from two of the most prestigious 'archrival' organizations in one photograph or event so might as well seize the opportunity of blogging it out.

The two are already good friends and we all know that both beauty queens are Jonas Gaffud's protégées under Aces and Queens. In a Victory Party held last night at Pedro 'N Coi, Valerie together with the rest of the A&Q family, celebrated the triumphant stints of her 'sisters' in their quests for the Binibining Pilipinas crowns with Pia finally getting the MUP title in her third try, Christi Lynn McGarry as BbP-Intercontinental, pageant rookie Ann Lorraine Colis nudging the Tourism crown and Kimverly Suiza landing a Second Runner-Up spot after her second attempt. Gracious in their defeat, some of the A&Q girls who made it as this year's Semi-Finalists also grace the event. Notable ones were Teresita Wynwyn Marquez, Alaiza Malinao and Kylie Versoza. Actually, 9 out of the Top 15 Semi-Finalists were all from Aces and Queens beauty camp. And such achievement is really worth celebrating for!
Once again Congratulations A&Q and may this year prove to be a successful one for the Philippines in the global pageantry!
