It was a photo finish, a come-from-behind triumph for you. And for a crowd inclined to think that the candidate who wins the most number of awards automatically wins the crown, it came as a surprise, if not shock.

When things cleared, some said it was your bedimpled smile that clinched you the title of Mutya Ng Tago 1993. Others said it was the way you glided on the catwalk with the ease of a supermodel. Still many others said it was in the final round of interview when you, bristling with wit, answered “that a mother’s best place is not the office but the home because it’s where she takes care of her children and nurtures them with love.”

But no matter what they said, you were fated to be a beauty queen! This I knew right the first rehearsal night when you entered the gym and lit the whole place with your presence. Clad in a white tee tucked into a tight Levi’s, you exuded glam even in your ballerina flats!

How old were you then? Thirteen? Fifteen?

But that August night you were poised for one so young. And you looked like Carmina Villaruel, only prettier. In fact when only you and Imee were left and I---as the nervous pageant host---referred to you as such, judge Zandro Limpot gave me a two thumbs up!

It was a tension-drawn night, one that made us feel like we were sitting on pins and needles. And before the show could begin, it rained hard, resulting to a brown out and some technical glitches.

And what a tough competition it was!

Your batch was the best in the history of Mutya Ng Tago: it had the classy Imee Pilapil, a beauty titlist who had Dawn Zulueta’s looks; it had the gorgeous Sheila Soriano whose whistle-bait figure would make angels weep of envy; it had the lithe, pretty and statuesque Maryjane Duque; and it had Imelda Montero who, at 5’9,” was the tallest candidate ever.

We shared with half of the candidates the dressing room at the east wing; Imee was at the other end. And every time she won an award, you’d go to her and congratulate her. It surprised me then that for one so young, you already possessed a savoir faire that’s rare even in adults.

Imee swept the minor and major awards, causing demoralization to pervade the backstage. I gave a running pep talk, to you most especially because I thought then that fatigue and disappointment was eating at you. But then every time you went onstage, you bounced with enthusiasm as though the show had only just begun: owning the catwalk like it was your playground; sashaying in a swimsuit that betrayed nothing of the baby fats; dazzling us with élan that made you one of the most sought after young models in Davao; and enthralling us with impeccable bearing in a Lady Di-inspired, black and white ensemble that reeked of simplicity and class.

Mutya Ng Tago is a beauty pageant known for not giving the questions in advance. We, at the Secretariat, believe that doing so would rob the pageant of spontaneity. (There’s nothing more pathetic than having candidates parroting-then-forgetting a memorized response prepared by pseudo intellectuals.) And so we understood your mom when she said during pictorials that she was not quite confident with you. You’re just a 3rd year high school student, she said, and what could possibly come from a babe’s mouth? But then your sister butted in that you may not be that intelligent, but you’re witty and smart.

And this you proved in the last stretch of the pageant when you finally wowed the judges!

By showing that one must match beauty with brains**—or form with substance---you set the bar higher for Mutya Ng Tago. And thanks to you, form-with-substance became a mantra for future candidates.

All these and more made you an icon. And the best Mutya Ng Tago, bar none!

Some 14 years later, on 10 February 2007, at 3:30 in the afternoon, you’ll be walking down the length of another catwalk---the center aisle of St. Francis of Assisi in Maa, Davao City. And this time, you’ll be in the arms of your groom who's giving you a new name and a new title.

Years from now, as you switch from supermodel to supermom, don’t forget that a mother’s best place is not the office but the home because it’s where she takes care of her children and nurtures them with love. But hey, you said this yourself, didn’t you?

Bernadette “Ben-ben” Feliciano: Beauty Queen. Icon. Bride.

My best wishes.

inday lagi nanga dili ako ka post nganhi. may bag-o na technique inhatag kanako ni bon, still---no-can-do! grrrrr......

bah may Miss Tago sa una, 1976. si nida laurente (representing purok avocado) balitaw and yakadaug. 1st runner up si colita lim (sa amo purok---tambis). other contestants were: marilyn pareja (calamansi), daisy secarro (citrus), ditas orozco (grapes), dulce pilapil (kinabigtasan), moonyeen quico (unaban).

di ba si nida gihapon an ms. talent; she sang POBRENG ALINDAHAW. colita ruled in the question and answer portion.

insoms,

no, it's cordaps who posted the picture. masipog na ako kan bon asta kan cordaps kay ag ko lang gango-gango-on na busy raba iton na mga tao. pero unhon sa lagi na di sa ako ka post nganhi.

big event inin Mutya Ng Tago sa ato; inatangan gayud kay kriminal sa lagi mo mount nan mga kababalaghan an tago. Di sa gayud magpa-alang alang.

Swerte sab an tago tungod kan bobot bagohin who is a topnotch (walang katulad) na choreographer. kamatayon an mga concept ni mam'bobot (that's how we call him---short for manong bobot). an mga soundtrack yaon wara nganhi, wara ngadto. basta magbinirahay nan kinuha-ay nan tapes human nan show.

an ka benben batch amoy kamatayon yadto kay 75 Araw ng Tago. may mga contestants from towns na under nan tago before like Bayabas, Cagwait and San Miguel. Jingle Murillo baya agaw was also a contestant.

maglaong kaw haw mo uli kaw kay magpasiugda kita ngadi, tapos judge kaw. hahahaha.

CORDAPS,

SALAMATIRS FOR POSTING THE PICS.

yes Insom I am one of the living witnesses in that said memorable and beautiful event.I was still in LandBank Tandag Branch then.An theme song nan kanta nan yaon na event an malaong ko lamang si Nonon Villamor bagan memorize pa nya an favorite na kanta. Modesty aside, one of the best things that happen in Tago. JUMPACKED an Gymnasium not with tago-on only but people as far as other nearby towns tapos puno i an plaza nan private cars considering that the rain poured hard before the start of the show. I was also one of the presentors taraw, I was wearing black blouse with a black shorts may glittering sequins, basta dum na adto pa ako sastre kay paga apas gayod.Bagan isa ka buwan bagan amo topic nan mga tao.Tandag Tago affected.Si K-spy EMCEE at si DEDEE anchor woman basta sosyali with all the lightings with a classy stage. With limited resources but the show ended up almost at par with the famous BB PILIPINAS.Enjoyi kami and at the same nervous also kay an press release ni K Spy an mga tao excited gayod.Pero Insom way labot ko sa concept nan show si manong bobot da yaon kay iya forte stage choreographer an director. Si K=spy an promotor gayod nan iton.
