Lone Bulacan bet is tallest, youngest in Bb. Pilipinas 2018

BINIBINING Pilipinas 2018 contestant Anjame Santos Magbitang holds the distinction as the tallest, youngest Bulacan bet in this year’s most exciting national beauty search that will culminate in a televised coronation show at the Big Dome on March 18, 2018.

Anjame, who stands 6 feet tall, turned 19 last January 11 and hails from Hagonoy. She is the only teen contestant from among the bevy of 40 beauties aspiring to be a Binibining Pilipinas winner.

As a young lady who literally stands out, Anjame has a string of pageant and modeling titles to her name, including her current title as Binibining Bulacan Pilipinas 2017.

The statuesque Bulacan lass comes from a financially challenged family. Her father is a boat driver who transports fish from the sea to the fish port, while her mom tends a sari-sari store.

She confessed in her Binibining Pilipinas profile video that coming from a poor family, there were times they had no food to eat but they were able to overcome these hard times by just being together as a united family.

Anjame has consistently excelled in school. She was a consistent top 10 student from kinder to elementary, and consistently led her high school class at the Mayor Ramona S. Trillana High School in Hagonoy.

Now on her second year in BS Tourism Management at Bulacan State University-Hagonoy Campus, Anjame is a consistent Dean’s Lister.

Anjame wants to reach out and inspire other young people with her story. “Have faith in God and believe in yourself because it is only by believing in yourself that you can achieve your goals in life,” she advises them.


Congratulations to the Philippine entries in two separate international pageants that were held in Malaysia last weekend.

At the Mrs. International Global Pageant held in Kuala Lumpur last Friday, Armi Oliver Farinas, an Ilocos Sur-born and Hawaii-based real estate broker, won the Mrs. International Global Goodwill Ambassador title in addition to being named Mrs. Most Confident in the “Classic” category (for entries over 45 years of age).

In the “Mrs” category, Bulacan-born and Japan-based teacher Myla Villagonzalo Tsutaichi won the Mrs. Inspiration title.

At the Miss Tourism World finals in Melaka City last Saturday, Marian Angelu Perez Alcantara was awarded the Miss Tourism World-Asia title.
