Describe yourself that most of your friends doesn't know about you?

Miss Republic of the Philippines: A look into the past and fast forward to the future

As I attended the Press Launch of the newly-revived Miss Republic of the Philippines, I cannot help but admire the courage and determination of Miss Lynette Padolina for taking on the difficult task of resuscitating a long-dormant brand.

I guess we cannot go forward into the future without looking back on the lessons of the past. From 1966 to 1976, the Miss Republic of the Philippines pageant is the springboard of young hopefuls who want to become Miss World and in a short span of 10 years, boasted of a success rate unmatched by any other organization who handled the Miss World franchise …
