As promised, here’s a photo of our brand-new beauties who emerged as winners at the April 28 Miss Teen Gawahon 2014 Search held at Poblacion Dos Basketball Court in Malabuyoc, Cebu. Instead of volunteering to be the candidates’ official makeup artist as in last year, I just opted to take care of the three reigning queens plus the host due to time constraints.
I arrived in Malabuyoc that morning, had an hour or so of catnap, and then went biking around the town, under the scorching heat of the sun—to look for the right people to comprise the board of judges. The night prior and also the night earlier saw the Miss Teen Philippines 2014 Central Visayas Regional Finals and technical rehearsals, respectively, at SM City Cebu—wherein I had the mind-mending yet gratifying job as scriptwriter.
Congratulations to this year’s winners: Euline Ann Limbaga Novela, 16, Miss Teen Gawahon – Universe 2014; Khyle Ybiernas Ybanez, 16, Miss Teen Gawahon – World 2014; and Mavylle Ocat Padillo, 15, Miss Teen Gawahon – International 2014.
