While writing an intro for this post, I can’t help but think how Corazon Aquino feels now (if ever she’s still alive) to be included in this prestigious list. I’m pretty sure that being a Person of the Year in Time Magazine is a tremendous achievement for her. But to be one of the 25 Most Powerful Women of the 20th Century is greater. As an icon of democracy, the 11th and first lady president of the Philippines is now again recognized and have been included in this Time’s powerful list of women who have made significant impact to the world…

I saw Shalani Soledad, a counselor from our hometown, Valenzuela City several times already. I think she’s really beautiful, inside and out. Her simplicity simply defines her beauty. Even she’s the girlfriend of the most powerful person in the country today(Pres. NoyNoy Aquino), she remained to be humble and approachable. So sad, that she landed on #2 spot in the Top 10 Prettiest Pinay Politicians. Here’s the complete list: 10. LOREN LEGARDA 9. FATIMA ALIAH DIMAPORO 8. EMMELINE AGLIPAY 7. RACHEL MARGUERITE “CUTIE” DEL MAR 6. ABIGAIL FERRIOL 5. JANNAH EJERCITO 4. DARLENE CUSTODIO 3. RISA HONTIVEROS 2. SHALANI SOLEDAD…

In a solid Catholic country, September is one of the most important months for us. We usually call this the as the Marian month as we celebrate the birth of Mary (mother of Jesus).  Mary of Nazareth was born on September 8, 20 BC?  and believed to have died on August 15, 45 AD?. However, many believe that she did not die. She was ascended into heaven on December 8. Belated Happy Birthday!

The years 1969 and 1973 are probably two of the most important dates, so far in the history of Philippine Beauty Pageant because these are the years when the Philippine beauties (Gloria Diaz and Margie Moran) conquered the universe. Now that we are all looking forward to the 2010 Ms Universe, it’s nice to go back in time and relive the priceless moments of the Philippines Beauty Queens. 1969 – When a man conquered the moon, a woman from the Philippines conquered the Universe. The crowning of Ms. Gloria Diaz – the first Philippine Ms Universe. 1973 – Four years…
