I went to Gaisano to witness the event. Every year I'm looking forward for this pageant. I'm always looking forward for the gowns and the production numbers of the candidates. And indeed I was not dismayed, the modern filipiniana gowns designed by Johnny Abad, the President of Filipino Designers Association of the Philippines are epic. I can see the judges reactions when they saw the gowns and I think they want one also. (okey, okey i want one also hehehehe)

Maureen Paulo and Jenel Labiana were 1st runners up and Dave Barbero and Sarashvati Sarkar bagged 2nd runner up.

And a new twist in showing of the candidates curves not with bikinis but with a PLAY SUITS a very interesting and colorful twist I may say. The shows choreography as expected was superb with sir Dino Veloso directing it.

A close fight but in the end the wit, poise and intelligence of Caroline Lim and Gervic Romero bagged them the title of Lakan at Lakambini 2010.

One thing I love when ganda ever so much, Orman Manansala organize an event is that it's not boring. And every year their is always something new and exciting.
