19 lovely Kuyamis 2019 can­di­dates pre­sented

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Front Page -

At least 19 ladies rep­re­sent­ing their re­spec­tive mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in Misamis Ori­en­tal are vy­ing for the Miss Kuyamis 2019 ti­tle.

The of­fi­cial can­di­dates were pre­sented in pub­lic dur­ing the flag rais­ing rites at the capi­tol grounds, yes­ter­day, De­cem­ber 3.

But, provin­cial tourism of­fi­cer Jef­frey Sa­clot yes­ter­day said the num­ber of can­di­dates may still rise as other towns are given un­til to­day to send their bets.

He said only Gin­goog City and the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of Clave­ria and Kino­gu­i­tan have de­cided not to join the pageant.

The can­di­dates are Kyle Marie Inzo (Alu­bi­jid); Ce­jay Diane Domo (Balin­gasag); Hiyas­min Ca­putol (Balin­goan); Mary Faith Ladra (Bin­uan­gan); Cris An­tonette Teano (El Sal­vador City);

Jeza Christyl Relevo (Gitagum);

Ruby Myr Brito (Ini­tao); Zon Karla Ca­beltes (Jasaan); Mhedi Ali Mar Vil­laruz (Lagon­long); Rendy Mae Cas­trodes (Laguindin­gan); Aira Dawn Rivera (Lu­gait).

Also join­ing the pageant are Nina Dianne Bel­tran (Magsaysay); Riza­lyn Bong­cawel (Man­ti­cao); Chella Grace Fal­coner (Me­d­ina); In­grid Michel Carum­bana (Naawan); Jazmine Clar­ino (Opol); Nicky Daf­fodil Bul­le­cer (Salay); Ch­ery Rose Lo­mo­pog (Sug­bongco­gon); Maria Luz Vic­to­ria De­los An­ge­les (Tagoloan); and Jus­tine Miles Abe-abe (Vil­lanueva).

Sa­clot said the three that would not par­tic­i­pate the Miss Kuyamis 2019 may have their rea­sons.

He said Gin­goog City has ear­lier man­i­fested that it would send a rep­re­sen­ta­tive but their bet failed the height re­quire­ment.

“I don’t want to be­lieve nga puli­tika ang rea­son be­cause as I have been say­ing nga de­spite sa po­lit­i­cal dif­fer­ences we have to be united to pro­mote our towns and cities kay gani daghan man nga dili kaalyado sa poli­tika ni Gov. Bambi pero they are ac­tive in tak­ing part sa mga tourism-re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties sa prov­ince,” Sa­clot said.

The provin­cial tourism of­fi­cer also said the mu­nic­i­pal­ity will only spend min­i­mal for the can­di­date since the capi­tol will take care of other ex­pen­di­tures.

Sa­clot said the par­tic­i­pat­ing towns are ex­pected to pro­duce their own Kuyamis-in­spired cock­tail dress for their can­di­dates to show­case their crafts­man­ship, skills and in­ge­nu­ity.

“Gi­wala na pud nato ang ca­sual in­ter­view sa corona­tion night for us to save time kay we want to fin­ish the event in a short pe­riod of time,” he said.

The Miss Kuyamis 2019 will be held on Jan­uary 10 at the Tagoloan dome. The pageant is part of the week-long cel­e­bra­tion of the Kuyamis Fes­ti­val which is slated on Jan­uary 7-12. Al­wen Salir­ing
