Mrs. PTA 2019

My journey to Mrs PTA Pageant was long that ran for 3 years.  On the first year during the GPTA Presidency of Engr. Oscar Cadag, I was asked to represent City of Mandaluyong Science High School. On the second year, under the GPTA Presidency of Sir Levy Cabeliza, I was asked again. On the third year, under Ma'am Beth Servito, I was considered again. On three occasions, I declined.

On the third year, we were able to finally have a representative, unfortunately she had pressing matters to attend. After carefully assessing my feelings, I messaged Ma'am Beth that I am ready to join to bring glory and honor to our beloved MandSci.

I took over and had less than a month to prepare for everything. The hardest part was collecting recyclable materials so I would like to thank all the parents, teachers and friends who contributed and sent their help. Special mention goes to Mr. and Mrs. Ronnie and Egen Coronado, Sir Francis Dela Paz, current GPTA President, Mr. and Mrs. Bert and Maan Esteban, Sir Cobbarubias, my bebegel Fhaye, my Ate Jo Mendiola, Ms. Cor Salvador, Mr, and Mrs Nick and Majesty Barcelon, Mareng Riz Avila and her sister-in-law, Ms. Charmaine Chua, Sir Dennis Cerillo, Ms. Winnie, Ms. Jing Cello, Ma'am Lav Ressurecion, Ma'am Oben, Ate Anna Arcangel, Kuya Miyo and Kenneth.  I hope I haven't forgotten anyone. Madali naman i-edit in case may nalimutan ako😁.

I also had a hard time with advertisement sponsorship. Gratitude  goes to Marra and Co., GPTA 2018-2019, under the good governance of Ma'am Beth,  Ma'am Thess Ferrolino and Minute Burger, Capt. Ronan and Mrs. Velasquez, Engr. Cielo Panesa-Paldez and family, Mr. and Mrs. Edward and Amy Eugenio of AVJM Trucking, Ma'am Loui Fermiza, Sister Grace Manlapig and FilCrafters, Inc., Mr, and Mrs. Isagani and Brigitte Mauleon, Dienamik Tool Services c/o Mr. Jesus Celis, Aero Direct Enterprises and Aeroman Trading c/o Ms. Riza Avila. I hope I haven't forgotten anyone. Madali naman i-edit in case may nalimutan ako😁

For my hair and make-up, gratitude to Oskee Cabeltis and Gray Alvarez of Oskee Cabeltis Salon.

If there's anyone who 100% cheered for me from day one to coronation, it's Ma'am Beth Servito. Thank you Ma'am!

I'd like to thank our dear Principal, Sir Erick Mendiola (not related by blood, but cousins by virtue of respect) for fully supporting me on this pageant.

Last but certainly the most important person, my husband, John, for being patient and understanding. And for cooking and cleaning the house while I practice, do yoga, and collect kalakals.

Of course I will not forget to thank those who cheered during the Coronation Night of Mrs. PTA 2019. First on the list is my friend Mamu Agnes and her daughter Nisha. They even printed tarpaulins with my name on it! My children, Akky, Nicole and Maxine, Sir Francis Dela Paz, Ma'am Lai, Sir Bert, Maan, Ma'am Jewel, Ma'am Chona, Mr. and Mrs. Calumpad, my beloved Mommies from former 10 Curie - Neng, Loui, Emz and Carms, Ms. Carz, Bebegel Fhaye, Sir Kojack, Ma'am Juliet.  And most importantly my Kumareng Riz for assisting me the whole night even if it was a short notice. I hope I haven't forgotten anyone. Madali naman i-edit in case may nalimutan ako😁.

I am not comfortable joining contests like this because I lack the height, I do not to wear swimsuit, I walk like a caveman, and I don't have any talent.

I am sharing below the shorter version of Mrs. PTA 2019 Coronation Night. Please lang wag nyo po pagtawanan ang talent ko, as I have said wala akong talent I did a combination of ballet (kuno), interpretative dance and yoga. Hayaan nyo na po if hindi maganda ang performance ko, importante I brought home Best in Evening Gown, Mrs. Q and A, and was crowned Mrs. PTA 2019!

"Being the Queen is not all about singing, 
and being a diva is not all about singing. 
It has much to do with your service to people. 
And your social contributions to your community 
and your civic contributions as well."
