MPE 2014: The 10 North Luzon Beauties in Bikinis!
What a beautiful day it was at the poolside of Solaire, which turned out to be such a huuuuge by-the-sea getaway with gorgeous coconut trees and lots of pool space for you to swim in! I did not realize just how gorgeous this place was having only seen the casino and ballroom.
Well, it became an even prettier place with the 49 official candidates of Miss Philippines Earth 2014 parading around in their Ricky Abad bikinis! Here are the photos I took… the girls that stood out are highlighted in RED… ENJOY!
THE TEN ECO-WARRIOR BEAUTIES FROM NORTHERN LUZON:
Catherine Catbagan (Binalonan, Pangasinan) – Don’t underestimate this 24-year-old sexy Morena beauty; she is a charge nurse at Dagupan Doctor’s Villaflor Memorial Hospital!
Thessa Marie Saavedra (Camiling, Tarlac) – This fair lady is a registered nurse who discovered that pageants were her ‘thing’ after she placed 1st Runner up in a college beauty contest. She’s now 24 years old.
Monique Manuel (Dinalupihan, Bataan) – A second-timer at MPE, Monique is getting more attention than when she first joined in 2009. She entered the Top 10 then. I can see her placing even higher this time around with a strong possibility of entering the runners-up circle. Monique is a commercial model and host for TFC Pinoy Destinations. She’s 25 years old.
Bianca Paz (Gapan) – This standout beauty has joined national pageants several times, never winning the main title but usually placing very high. This is her first foray into MPE and I feel that this could finally be her crown. Fresh, relaxed and as tall as a tower, she would be a worthy winner. This 25-year-old pageant denizen is a fashion designer in her own right.
Marjorie Acuna (Gerona, Tarlac) – I would love for her to be my doctor; Marjorie’s warm smile will surely make me feel better in seconds! Currently, she works as an Intern for the Tarlac Provincial Hospital. She’s 25 years old.
Ma. Teresa Ocampo (Laoag) – Can’t imagine why anyone would want to be as white as a vampire when you can be as deliciously dark as Ma. Teresa ! This 25-year-old MPE eco-warrior is a passionate theater actress.
Jenn Kristel Gonzales (Mariveles, Bataan) – I am captivated by the curves of Jenn – just look at how her back arches so effortlessly! Her warm and inviting smile will come in handy when the 20-year-old Tourism students graduates and starts working in that field.
Leslie Ann Pine (San Leonardo, Nueva Ecija) – One of the sweetest faces in this crop of MPE beauties, Leslie is a natural charmer. You’ll love the 20-year old business student even more when you discover that she left her studies and family in Santa Monica, California to come to Manila to study here.
Angelie Crizelle Ocampo (Sta. Rita , Pampanga) – When I scan a crowd of pageant contestants I always look for the faces that really stand out. Angelie Crizelle’s lovely visage was one of those that grabbed my eyes in this bevy of beauties! She’s also pretty hot when posing for the cam. The 20-year-old Kapampangan lass is a staffer of Senator Lito Lapid.
Mabel Joy Verceles (Vigan) – I love your hair flip Mabel Joy! This Ilocana titleholder has joined several provincial pageants and the training shows. She’s 22 years old and works as a Marketing Officer.
The tall ones in this batch are Bianca Paz of Gapan and Sta. Rita, Pamapanga’s Angelie Crizelle Ocampo. As you can see they’re all wearing the same shoes so that gives us a better idea of their height. Although height seems to be not as crucial in winning pageants these recent years, it’s a major point of interest for serious pageant followers.
