Prior to the Swimsuit Competition, there was a briefing for the judges with regards to the criteria and what Miss Silka Philippines 2014 is looking for in a particular winner.
I always looked forward to chatting with Mellanie Angelina Wallace whose family owns The Buzz & Bohol Bee Farm and Dr. Joyce Castillo, top Boholana dermatologist from Makati Medical Center because they have always been two of the most amazing and most accomplished young Boholanas that I have ever met.
We started the briefing when we were advised that the third judge Paolo Rigotti had just left another engagement which extended quite a bit.
The judges were constantly reminded to be on the look out for the girls who they think would stand out in the national finals.
Joining us for the briefing was Mares Castillo, CPA who represented D.B. Ebojo & Associates, CPA, the pageant’s official accounting firm
The briefing was done at the Gelateria Milano, located at Level Five of BQ Mall right in the heart of Tagbilaran City. Incidentally, Paolo Rigotti, one of the Swimsuit Competition judges, is the owner of Bohol’s first & only gelateria.
