biggthumpup.gif Huge welcome readied for Miss International 2005
From Manila Bulletin website:

By ROBERT R. REQUINTINA


When Miss Philippines Precious Lara Quigaman, winner of the prestigious 2005 Miss International beauty pageant, returns to the country sometime next week, a big welcome awaits her.


Officials of the Bb. Pilipinas Charities Inc. (BPCI) said that preparations are under way to welcome Quigaman, the fourth Filipina to win the international contest which was held in Tokyo, Japan last Monday night.

Unconfirmed reports said that a motorcade is being planned from the airport to the Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City, home of the Bb. Pilipinas, during the arrival of Quigaman. Sources also said that Quigaman will pay a courtesy call on President Arroyo on her arrival.

Other sources said that the international beauty may arrive in the country either Sunday or Monday.

Quigaman, 22, won the Bb. Pilipinas-International title in March, earning her the right to represent the country in the Miss International beauty contest in Tokyo.

But it wasn’t the first time Quigaman joined the Bb. Pilipinas beauty pageant. Ronald Rodriguez of the Fuentes Publicity, the company that handled the local pageant’s coronation event, said that Quigaman first joined the same contest in 2001. "She never won any awards."

"But she really wanted to become a beauty queen. That’s why she joined the contest again," Rodriguez said.

Quigaman is the fourth Filipina to win the Miss International title. The first was Gemma Cruz in 1965, followed by Aurora Pijuan in 1970, and Melanie Marquez in 1979.

Armando de San Agustin, 74, grandfather of Quigaman, said his granddaughter grew up in Ususan, Taguig. San Agustin is the father of Lara’s mother, Precisita.

San Agustin, jeepney driver, said that they learned about his granddaughter’s triumph through the beauty queen’s best friend.

"Lara’s high school best friend joined her in Tokyo, along with her mother and younger brother Ariel. When Lara made it to the semi-finals of the contest, she called the house. And when Lara finally made it, she called again."

Members of the San Agustin household cheered Quigaman’s victory.

San Agustin described Quigaman as simple and quiet while she was growing up. Quigaman spent her teenage days in Biñan, Laguna, where she attended high school at La Consolacion College Biñan, he said.

Later, Quigaman went to London and studied at Filton College.

Quigaman is listed in her portfolio as a freelance web writer before concentrating on modeling. At 5’5 tall, the beauty titlist weighs 100 lbs. and measures 33-23-34.

GMA 7’s "24 Oras" said Quigaman impressed the judges with her answer on kids welfare. Quigaman said she hopes to raise funds for children and give them free education, not only in the Philippines but also around the world. She said that her plans will promote friendship among nations.

Quigaman also said that she misses her father a lot who died in a vehicular accident in May. Interviewed by news anchor Karen Davila, Quigaman cried and said: "Dad, miss na miss na kita. I know you’ve always believed in me. I know you can hear me and see me. Thank you for praying for me. You will always be in my heart."

In a statement, President Arroyo extended her and the Filipino people’s felicitations to Quigaman.

"On behalf of all Filipinos, I congratulate Precious Lara Quigaman for winning the Miss International title. She joins a long list of Filipinas who have brought our country honor and prestige, not only for their beauty, but also for their intelligence, charm and grace," the President said in a statement released by Malacañang immediately after the crowning ceremonies in Tokyo.

Arroyo added: "May she serve as a responsible role model for young women in our country."

Senate Majority Leader Kiko Pangilinan saluted Quigaman’s victory. The senator said: "Precious Lara Quigaman’s victory is a welcome respite for the whole nation. After the triumphs of Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao and two other compatriots, Ms. Quigaman’s success in the pageant reiterates the innate inability of Filipinos to conquer the world. She will surely be an inspiration to our nation and I am elated to hear that she is also an advocate of children’s rights herself."

Imagine your a poor unemployed Filipino back home trying to find the evenings meal and worry about tommorows meal, would you even care? I don't think so.

But when it comes to questioning that glitz and glamor shiet, people like you who take it as a piece of real pride, freeze on the spot. I'll be proud when an entrepreneur sets up in the Phil. and becomes successful enought to make jobs for the people back home, now thats somthing to be trully proud about.

You moron. Why did you think that winning a beauty pageant can help the starving, poor Filipinos? What's the connection? How can you even relate winning a beauty pageant with helping in the hunger problem? Plain and simple, you are an idiot.

EMERALDRAGON7, you're the biggest idiot. What's the correlation between winning a beauty pageant and helping out (or providing solution - as hopefuly you would mean) in the starvation issue?

^You are the biggest idiot EMERALDRAGON7. You said: "I don't see those beauty pagaent winners building a country! Thats the problem with so many Filipinos today, all shobiz and glamor it becomes A-PATHETIC.".

You expect beauty pageant winners to build a country? Are you stupid? A beauty pageant is mostly for entertainment, socialization and building close ties with other countries... similar to joining the Olympics. And why? Do you also believe that Olympic winners should build a country too? You fu-king imbecile!

You piece of ordure went on to say: "But when it comes to questioning that glitz and glamor shiet, people like you who take it as a piece of real pride, freeze on the spot."

There is real pride in winning a beauty pageant, my golly what's wrong with being proud when our candidate won the Miss International title?

You retard went on to say: "I'll be proud when an entrepreneur sets up in the Phil. and becomes successful enought to make jobs for the people back home, now thats somthing to be trully proud about."

What? Aren't we talking about beauty pageant here? fu-k you - you are off-topic you stupid mother-fu-king @$$hole son of a b!tch.

You pea-brain said: "Fukk the beauty pagaent to bring national pride, today it's economics that bring prominence to nations. Money talks bullshiet walks, which one are you?"

Why? You wanna abolish all the beauty pageants because all you get out of them is a non-real pride? fu-k you again, beauty pageants have their own purpose and I don't think bolstering the economy is one of them. But you, you low-life worm, thinks that beauty pageants are supposed to bring economic growth and rake more money to beaf-up the Philippine economy - WHAAATTTT? I'm so fu-king amused by your idiotic remarks... I am laughing, rolling on the floor.

Yeah, very well said JML cause this fu-king paradigm of ignorance is the one talking so much bull$h!t. What's so fatuous about your ENTIRE bull$h!t of a paragraph is the FACT that you relentlessly speak as if these pageant winners are some sort of dieties who can ease the suffering that our country is undergoing? I have never seen a half-wit who have compared a pageant to a country's condition icon_rolleyes.gif Why do you think we have pageants? It was created for entertainment and for these individuals to display pride in representing their respectable countries. Please enunciate why you bring up our country's situation when this is merely entertainment news. What you're saying sounds so unrealistic and you strayed WAY OFF topic. If you don't feel that this is nothing for Filipinos to be proud of, then just say nothing at all because you seem so conspicuously stupid. It's these kind of things that can actually consolidate our spirits when all is gloomy. Please don't bring up economy and pageants EVER AGAIN.

JMAC, you're one helluva nice guy (so far) but I beg to disagree when you said "while both of you have very good points..." - referring to both Cristiano Ronaldo and EMERALDRAGON7. While Cristiano only tried to "smack" the idiot EMERALD,... the latter - is an idiot when he/she tried to correlate a simple beauty pageant with helping in the philippine starvation problem. EMERALDRAGON7 said: "Whooptie doo...another pagaent winner, too bad her winning it still doesn't help the starving, poor Filipino back home." - and by saying that he has promoted himself to be the biggest idiot I've ever seen.

beerchug.gif biggthumpup.gif embarassedlaugh.gif Congratulations to Precious Lara Quigaman !

biggthumpup.gif Maan Bayot- 2004 is also one of the semifinalist in Miss International

biggrin.gif The country's former international beauty pageant titlists are heaping praises on newly crowned Miss International Precious Lara Quigaman.

"She's elegant, intelligent and focused. I'm so happy for her and for the country," Ruffa Gutierrez said.

Gutierrez, the 1993 Miss World Second Princess, said she plans of inviting Quigaman to appear on her very own Fashion TV Turkey. The 10-year-old station dedicated to fashion in Turkey was recently purchased by Gutierrez's Turkish husband Yilmas Bektas and he named her as its new president

"I wanna bring [Quigaman] there. She can do a lot on Fashion TV along with other Filipino designers I want to invite. I want to see her before I leave," she said.

Gutierrez arrived early this month in Manila from Istanbul for a month-long visit.

Gemma Cruz-Araneta, the first Filipina to win the Miss International title, meanwhile, said she sees herself in 22-year-old Quigaman.

Araneta said that her victory took place during the presidency of President Arroyo's father Diosdado and it was a time as highly political as the present.

"By coincidence, I won under the Macapagal administration. We had merienda in Malacañan and President Macapagal gave me a golden heart presidential medal and Gloria (Macapagal-Arroyo) helped him pin it on me," she said.

Quigaman's speech about her goal to raise funds for children won the judges' nods.

Araneta shares the same concern for the young ones.

"Congress passed a resolution exempting me from paying taxes because I donated my prize of $10,000 to Boys Town," she said.

When asked what advice she would give Quigaman, the once activist and former tourism secretary said that indeed, a beauty queen has a big social responsibility.

"First of all, show your love of country above anything else. And obey your mother," Araneta said.

Quigaman bested 52 other delegates for the prestigious international beauty title also previously won for the country by Aurora Pijuan and Melanie Marquez.

She is the daughter of Princesita Quigaman, a registered nurse in Bristol, United Kingdom and Nelson, who died in May in a car accident.

She graduated with a degree in Media Production and Communications at Filton College in Bristol. She also took a Bachelor of Arts in Childhood and Youth Studies at Bristol University.

Why is it that when Filipinos are succeeding, there HAS to be idiots like you? icon_rolleyes.gif

while both of you have very good points...we really dont need anymore crab mentality thats been plaguing our society...

JMAC, you're one helluva nice guy (so far) but I beg to disagree when you said "while both of you have very good points..." - referring to both Cristiano Ronaldo and EMERALDRAGON7. While Cristiano only tried to "smack" the idiot EMERALD,... the latter - is an idiot when he/she tried to correlate a simple beauty pageant with helping in the philippine starvation problem. EMERALDRAGON7 said: "Whooptie doo...another pagaent winner, too bad her winning it still doesn't help the starving, poor Filipino back home." - and by saying that he has promoted himself to be the biggest idiot I've ever seen.

Look, I know the beauty pageant has nothing to do with it but seriously, poverty is very hard to ignore in the Philippines, its an issue to be put on priority.

But its not the best practice to bash other Filipino success so I agree with Christiano...crab mentality is all over..

Talktohand.gif Thanks for the corrections!
I think winning the pageant may not totally or even fully eradicate poverty in the Philippines but it could help give some attention to the plight of the people like street children , in the article above: When Gemma Cruz won the 1964 Miss International she donated $10,000 to the Boys Town a place where indigent and out of school youth are housed (That was way back in 1964)

biggrin.gif Precious Lara Quigaman even said in an interview she was not able to hold that much money and attention. She plans to donate 10% of her prize to the church and some charity institutions, aside from planning to organize a foundation to help the street children not only in Japan but also the Philippines.
She is a rich girl but somehow by winning the Miss International pageant , her life had somehow changed.

beerchug.gif What is important is people who gives the country the honor whether men or women alike. It is like winning an Olympic gold !

i've always wanted to marry a beauty queen

biggthumpup.gif Here are some facts from Miss International:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Maria Stella Araneta Márquez, born Maria Stella Márquez Zawadzky and now simply known as Madame Stella Araneta, is a national pageant director and former international beauty queen.

Araneta was Miss Colombia in 1959 and was therefore able to compete in the first Miss International beauty pageant held in Long Beach, California, USA. She won that competition by half a point, becoming the very first Miss International, and the first Latina Miss International.

She later married a Filipino man, and now is an organizer the most prestigious beauty pageant in the Philippines, Binibining Pilipinas (Miss Philippines), which sends its winners to Miss Universe, Miss World, and Miss International.


August 11, 1960

On the final night of preliminary judging, Miss Greece through Miss Paraguay competed in evening gown; Miss Peru through Miss Venezuela competed in playsuit; and Miss Argentina through Miss Germany competed in national costume and speech. The divisional winners? Miss Norway, Lise Hammer, recovering from an infected foot, won the evening gown division. Miss U.S.A., Charlene Lundberg won the playsuit division; and Miss Ceylon, Yvonne Eileen Gunawardene, won the national costume and speech division.

One final preliminary award was given out this day, as well. It was the Miss Friendship Award, won by Miss British Guiana, Julia Ann Adamson.

After all these awards, and an entertaining “divertissement,” emcee Byron Palmer announced the 15 semifinalists, based on their total points received in each round of preliminary competition.

The semifinalists were, in alphabetical order by country:

AUSTRIA - Elizabeth Hodacs
COLOMBIA - Maria Stella Márquez Zawadzky
ENGLAND - Joyce Kay
GERMANY - Helga Kirsch
ICELAND - Sigridur Geirsdottir
INDIA - Iona Pinto
ISRAEL - Lili Dajani
ITALY - Maria Grazia Jacomelli
JAPAN - Michiko Takagi
PARAGUAY - Gretel Hedger Carvallo
PHILIPPINES - Edita Resurreccion Vital
POLAND - Marzena Malinowska
SINGAPORE - Christl D’Cruz
U.S.A. - Charlene Lundberg
VENEZUELA - Gladys (Laly) Ascanio Arredondo
By Half A Point

The final 5 stood on stage, in their evening gowns again, as the judges made their final marks and the auditors tallied the scores. The women were kept on stage ten minutes longer than planned for the judges to finish their deliberations. And the final results were:

4th runner-up - U.S.A, Charlene Lundberg
3rd runner-up - ENGLAND, Joyce Kay
2nd runner-up - ICELAND, Sigridur Geirsdottir
1st runner-up - INDIA, Iona Pinto
Miss International Beauty of 1961 - COLOMBIA, Maria Stella Márquez Zawadzky
Emcee Byron Palmer crowned the first Miss International and she took her victory walk, pausing to nod to and thank the judges.

The Los Angeles Times, in their front-page Saturday story, noted how cool, calm, and collected the final 5 were as the results were announced. The paper hinted that the results had leaked out from backstage. The Times declared the final moments of the contest as "probably the most unemotional climax of any of the Long Beach beauty pageants." (referring to the previous 8 Miss Universe Pageants that Long Beach hosted).

And what about the extra ten minutes the final 5 had to stand on stage? The Times reported that Miss Colombia won by a half a point over Miss India. Miss India, Iona Pinto, confirmed this fact in the book PRIDE OF INDIA by Persis Khambatta, and explained how she happened to loose the half a point.

In the book, which pays tribute to former Miss Indias, Miss Pinto says that after the contest, the top 5 were introduced to the judges. The Dean of the Judges, Vincent Trotta, told Miss Pinto, “Miss India, I hope you keep smiling...because you stopped smiling you lost half a point to Miss Colombia.” Miss Pinto goes on to say that during the ten minutes extra they stood on stage for the final voting, the judges waited for one of them to do something wrong. And she, Miss India, stopped smiling.

From left to right: 3rd runner-up, Miss England, Joyce Kay; 1st runner-up, Miss India, Iona Pinto; Miss International Beauty of 1961, Miss Colombia, Stella Marquez; 2nd runner-up, Miss Iceland, Sigridur Geirsdottir; and 4th runner-up, Miss U.S.A., Charlene Lundberg.

“The Finale of A Happy Dream”
"The finale of a happy dream" - this is what the first Miss International had to say about her victory. Newspaper reports described her as “striking...dazzling” and with a “fascinating figure and flashing smile.” A language and psychology student at Marymount College in New York, the new Miss International had also attended the University of California at Los Angeles. In a press conference after her victory, she declared that she was the “ugly duckling” of the family and that her two younger sisters were prettier than she was.

On Saturday, the day after Miss Colombia’s victory, the contestants spent the day saying farewell to the community of Long Beach. One of these farewells was a “Wedding of the Waters,” in which 14 contestants from coastal cities poured waters from their countries into the Long Beach Harbor. That evening, 1,000 people - each and everyone in formal attire - attended the gala coronation ball at the Lafayette Hotel. White-uniformed naval officers with crew cuts escorted the 52 pageant delegates.

For winning the crown of Miss International Beauty of 1961, Miss Colombia collected a $10,000 cash prize. Miss India, the first runner-up collected $4,000; Miss Iceland, the second runner-up, was awarded $2,500; Miss England, third runner-up, received $2,500; and Miss U.S.A., fourth runner-up, $1,000. All of the 15 semifinalists received $200 cash and all 52 received $100. It is important to note that these cash awards were provided by the City and Port of Long Beach, not by commercial, corporate sponsors.
