THE 18th Pana-ad sang Negros Search for Lin-ay sang Negros 2012 kicked off Tuesday with the Press Presentation of the candidates and the selection of “Muse of the Media” and “Lin-ay nga Ma-abilidad” at Robinsons Place Bacolod.
Bacolod City’s 2011 Miss MassKara 2nd runner-up Allysa Marie E. Villarico was chosen by members of the media as “Muse of the Media” while Bago City’s bet Catherine Joy F. Marin ran off with the “Lin-ay nga Ma-abilidad” award.
Twenty-four lovely candidates representing their respective local government units are vying for the Lin-ay sang Negros 2012 title.
They are Lea Grace G. Jardinico (Binalbagan), Jennybeb E. Bedelo (Cadiz City), Shara A. Villaflor (Cauayan), Rose Ann Mae J. Diaz (E.B. Magalona), Cristy Mae Q. Mendoza (Escalante City), Precious Grace V. Heradura (Himamaylan City); Cherry Ann M. Magarse (Hinigaran), Kristy Claire S. Ebreo (Hinoba-an), Jan Camille Y. Albito (Ilog), Christ’l C. Garrido (Isabela), Vaness Marie G. Oyos (Kabankalan City), Twinkle B. Fernandez (La Carlota City), Karla O. Ape (La Castellana); Patricia Anne A. Reconquista (Manapla), Chinky A. Cantere (Murcia), Marjoelyn B. Rebadomia (Sagay City), Rita Dayanara V. Alla (Don Salvador Benedicto), Damaris Vi T. Landao (San Carlos City); Cel Marie A. Lachica (Silay City), Keulani Marie J. Dizon (Sipalay City), Sherizze Sean C. Acot (Talisay City) and Jemaimah N. Taladico (Victorias City).
All candidates were asked by members of the media about current events and how could they promote Negros if they are given the chance to be the Lin-ay sang Negros 2012.
Each candidate expressed their views and opinions on various issues in governance, leadership and the greatest strength of the province, in terms of tourism, investment and other matters.
Pageant director Rene Hinojales then asked the candidates to show their skills, instead of talents.
Hinojales said that sometimes the talents, which are being presented by the candidates, are not their own or in-born talent but something which they were only trained for.
But with their natural skills, they would really show how good they are with what they do best, citing for example art of flower arrangement.
Each candidate was given flowers to arrange. The most beautifully arranged bouquet became the winner in Tuesday’s “Lin-ay nga Ma-abilidad” skills presentation.
