Its after effects were felt around the world when it spewed tons of minerals and metals into the surface and adversely affected the stratospheric conditions of the globe.
It did not only change the landscape of the affected areas in Central Luzon and alter the lives of people in those areas but also threatened to mar the successful staging of the 1991 Bohol Sandugo Festival. Talk about perfect timing.
The bevy of beautiful Boholanas in its official line- up of candidates made it the most anticipated highlight of the annual month- long Sandugo Festival
Truly epitomizing beauty, brains and breeding
Did you know that the 1991 pageant edition is the first and only time that the pageant was held in an open air venue?
A stage rose from the middle of the CPG Sports Complex with the cordoned off VIP section surrounding it. General admission tickets were seated at the grandstand area. It wasn’t a wise decision since July is a rainy month.
A slight drizzle in fact threatened to cancel the event. Since then, the pageant has been held in an indoors venue
The girls also brought with them their towns’ popular or best- selling product which they also introduced to the jampacked crowd. For instance, Miss Jagna Ma. Recelle Adlaon brought with her the very famous calamay which is synonymous with the name of her town.
Insiders revealed that the original plan to have a Top Five who will undergo a final interview round was scrapped because of the inclement weather.
According to very reliable sources, Recelle won the judges over to her side with her angelic face, her refreshing candor and spontaneity, her natural and unrehearsed ways, her winsome smile and the great personality projection that was very evident in the interviews
Did you know that for the first time ever, the girls were allowed to express themselves inany language or dialect during the Q & A portion with no point deduction on their scores.
Although she was pressured by fellow Jagnaanons to duplicate the victory of Tiffany Yap as Miss Bohol Sandugo the previous year, she never had any high expectations.
She then left everything to Divine Intervention after she had conditioned herself to accept whatever the results would be that night.
She believed that whoever would be crowned that year’s Miss Bohol Sandugo would surely be the most deserving.
Truly, her triumphant journey on the way to bagging the crown was already written in the stars
Did you know that the Municipality of Jagna is the first town in Bohol to achieve a back- to- back victory in Bohol? It would become a threepeat when another Miss Jagna, the sultry and smart U.P. Diliman educated Celevel Ranoco, won the crown in 1992. The record still stands until now
”Just be yourself, reach out and make new friends and most importantly, enjoy the experience.
That way, you wouldn’t become bittershould the crown prove to be elusive for you.
Expect the worst but hope for the best. At the end of the day, after the pageant has ended,
you are left with nothing except the memories”
