  1. She’s very stunning! :) No wonder she got chosen as Ms. Photogenic!

    (Or (re: online voting thing) maybe that’s because Filipinos are such internet addicts? XD)

    UP College of Law -> beauty and brains! :) Yay UP!

  2. Yup2! ;) Too bad, she was not chosen as a finalist.

    Asians ruled this year! Miss Japan, Miss Philippines, Miss China, and Miss Korea! :D

    Re: Online Voting - that’s just what I am saying to my lola ^^

    UP LAW! YEHEY! :)

  3. I beg to disagree with the Pinoy online voting factor as to why Tere Licaros won. Korea has more internet users compared to the Philippines. See http://www.aneki.com/internet.html. Iba lang talaga siya.

    I believe Tere Licaros won the Miss Photogenic award because she’s the only one who posed with finnesse and poise. If you’d see the other candidates’ photos, especially in the swimsuit category, grabe, mukha sila lahat nagpose for Playboy.

  4. Yeah I know! She’s very lovely! And she definitely captivated the internet audience. Thanks Kirk for the info! :)

  5. Yeah, she is indeed photogenic. By the way, is she mixed?

  6. Nope, I think she’s pure Filipina.

  7. Ah, cool. I dont know any pure Filipina. Hmm, does she not look spanish?

  8. Hmm…actually Filipinos are somewhat mixed because of 300 years of Spanish colonialization, plus Japanese, plus American occupation…then Asian migrants and those stuff… so… there.. lol

  9. Ah, I see. :)
