Crown Turnover

Honestly, I have no idea where or how to start this post. It's quite difficult for me to put into words my gratefulness and happiness about everything that has happened during my reign, but one thing's for sure, sobrang mahalaga ito para sa akin. :) Let me share to you the simple speech I made which we recorded days before the walk.


"Being crowned as Bb. Pamantasan 2011 seems like a dream to me, and tonight, I am about to close this beautiful chapter in my life. It has truly been a memorable and surreal year filled with adventures, challenges, growth, tears and smiles. I'm extremely grateful to all the people who have stood by me throughout this journey. Thank you to everyone at the G. at Bb. Pamantasan organization. All of your awesome opportunities have forever changed my perspective on life. To my CTHTIM (College of Tourism, Hotel & Travel Industry Management) family, our student council, my beloved classmates and friends, thank you for giving me the wonderful chance to represent our college. You have given me nothing but positive support and that means so much to me. To my parents who've been there every single step of the way, you are my inspiration and I love you. Last but not the least, all these won't be possible without God the Almighty. Your masterpiece called "world" is amazing. And to the lucky young lady who will get to wear the crown, enjoy each moment, every second and everybody you meet. This will be a once in a lifetime experience that you will take with you forever. Ako si Arnie Villanueva, Bb. Pamantasan 2011."

I think I've posted some of our pageant shots here before, so just browse through this humble blog if in case you want to see them. :p Now on to the final walk photos, imagine naka-voice over ang speech while looking at these! 


Back-stage with Ate/Mommy Aien! :) Unfortunately, I have no photo with my gorgeous HMUAs, kuya Jay Santos Aquino and kuya Marvin Quiambao, but sila na talaga nag-aayos sa akin ever since. Thank you so much po!! ♥ Names mentioned are alumni of CTHTIM. 


A real gentleman and one of the nicest guys I know, Ron Reyes. I'm truly honored to share the reign with him!


Gown by Mr. Noel Carbonell
I feel incredibly satisfied with his work! It's exactly what I wanted to wear for this memorable night. Thank you so much, Sir Noel! Your gown gained a lot of well-deserved praises! :)


Signature flying kiss! Hahaha


Hair and makeup plus accessories courtesy of kuya Jay Santos Aquino
You can hire him, too! Tweet him @akosijay21 or message me if you're interested! He's a hair stylist, make up artist and wedding coordinator over at Manila Wedding Planners! Kuya Jay worked for Philippine Fashion Week, too! :)


I learned so much from this one-of-a-kind experience and those things exposed me to new people, situations and opportunities. But if there's anything worst about being a beauty queen, that's to be a title holder only for a year. Hehe! :)


So proud of our college's representatives for this year, Nitz Lim (2nd runner up) and Darrylene Sy (1st runner up)! Congratulations guys!


College of Tourism, Hotel & Travel Industry family ♥


Special thanks to my dearest Vberni Regalado for taking some of my final walk photos! Love you babe!! :)

Kudos to us, Ron! :)

Credits to these people, thank you so much for allowing me to post your photos! :)
