20 Most Beautiful Bachelorettes of Milagros 2016

After enjoying and served with extremely sizzling hot plateful of handsome Milagreño bachelors (so far!!), TMA members are now craving for something even better, their counterpart, the most eligible, gorgeous and sought-after Bachelorettes of Milagros. Well, before they even demanded it, I was already considering it definitely. Undoubtedly, Milagros is gifted and flourished with beautiful and talented women. Beautiful not because they are drop gorgeous and whatever attractive physical attributes but most importantly the impact they have done to their families, friends and community that they should be proud of. The success they achieved for themselves have made them very inspiring and remarkable role model of their own rights. Not to mention, the virtues that they valued.20

Last February 2016, We posted a challenge to come up with nominations for the most eligible, beautiful, young and talented ladies of Milagros. You have provided an overwhelming turn-out of seventy one (71) personalities and we cut it down to sixty one (61) as we laid out beforehand some requirements like age, status and the likes. The decision-making stage was not really fun at all and honestly a tough job. Good thing we have friends who know how to scrutinize the looks and the real meaning of beauty. To the rescue, here they go. We all agreed to trim down the ladies into twenty (20). These equally gorgeous ladies were rated accordingly to their Personal appearance (50%), Personality (30%) and Facebook Likes (20%).
Without much ado, here they are!! The chosen ones, the inspiring, the admirable, the most voted, the most gorgeous and the most eligible bachelorettes of Milagros!! First time ever in the history of Milagros and TMA!!

Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy their beauties. Be inspired!!

She is one of the best among the current crop of Filipino fighters for Taekwondo who competed locally and internationally. However, she suffered in a freak accident while on training in preparation to the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea. She was supposed to bring gold again for The Philippines.

She was honored by the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) for her victory in the 27th SEA games held in Myanmar.

Her statuesque beauty should be in a world of beauty pageant but her interest is for Taekwondo. Aside from being a professional coach for a Taekwondo enthusiast, Jade is also enjoying her life as a blogger and sports contributor in Spin.ph.

Bache10             #10 Adhora Jean Medina Aganan, 23
Parents: Mrs. Mevida Medina & Jimmy Victor Aganan

Her name tells how adorable she is. This fifth child of Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Aganan of Sitio Mapili, Barangay Tawad, is very sweet and loving daughter.

Kriziah for me is simply an epitome of a natural Filipina. Gorgeous beyond compare, “morena” but don’t get her wrong if she’s quiet and shy because in contrast, she has totally a strong personality. She presently works as Human Resources Administrative Assistant at Aboitiz-Jebsen Company Inc. in Manila. She graduated Cum Laude from Far Eastern University with BS Psychology degree.

#3 Maritoni Paglinawan De Jesus, 25
Parents: Mrs. Tessie Paglinawan and Mr. Ramon De Jesus

Third spot was coveted by this bubbly, flawless and adventurer lady who works under the NDP (Nurse Deployment Program, formerly RNHeals) of Department of Health. She has worked as a Nurse in Milagros since 2012. Her altruistic act and great community service together with other RHU staff is obviously worthy of commendation. Unfortunately, this amazing opportunity to serve her people is a bit shaky due to politicized issues out of her control. The chance of being relocated is strong.

She brought honor not only to her De Jesus and Paglinawan Family but to Milagros as well, when she placed top 18th in the 2011 Nursing Licensure Examination. Maritoni graduated as Salutatorian at Milagros West Central School and Masbate National Comprehensive High School (BEC Curriculum) in 2003 and 2007, respectively. She earned her degree from Bicol University College of Nursing in Legazpi City, Albay.

GAS: Coincidentally, you and the persons you dislike are on the same pew in the church. They stared, glared at you and gave you a poker face as you exchange the peace sign with them. What would you do?
Maritoni: I’ll just smile!

Bache2

#2 Shiela Marie Cañete Sasuman, 22
Parents: Mrs. Salvacion Canete & Mr. Silverio Sasuman

Her natural beauty and her beatific smile captured the heart of TMA members; as a matter of fact she got the highest number of Facebook likes (352 likes) among the nominees.

Shiela won several pageant crowns like Mutya ng Pagdangan 2009 (Milagros), Miss University of the Philippines – College of Arts and Sciences 2013 (Iloilo City) and a finalist in Miss Rodeo Masbateño 2010 (Masbate City).

Bache1#1 Cathy Shane Llamazares Lupango, 20
Parents: Mrs. Estrellita Llamazares & Mr. Noel Lupango

Taking the number one spot on our list is a natural beauty and is a sweet princess inside. Born in Barangay Tigbao and grew up in Poblacion Milagros where her parents has a small business. She studied grade school in Milagros West Central School while finished as one of the 10 most outstanding graduates of Masbate National Comprehensive High School. Shane joined the MNCHS Drum and Bugle Corps as a majorette. She was an active member of SPA (Special Program in the Arts) where her dancing skills was developed.

Graduating last April 2016 with Cum Laude Honors from Far Eastern University, Shane has now a degree in Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management under her collar. She earned this degree enjoying a Full Scholarship Program. Right after graduation she applied at Cebu Pacific Air and as expected, she passed all the hiring procedures and got the job offer but has not made a decision yet as she is still awaiting the results from her job application with Philippine Airlines, too. From there she could figure herself out what are her best options.

What inspires me most about Shane is her character and extraordinary passion to help our fellow Milagreños by sharing her blessings. Every first day of the year, Shane celebrates her birthday with the less fortunate kids in selected barangays of Milagros like Tigbao, Bacolod and Bangad. She’s been doing it for the past five years and she plans to continue it. “Gusto ko mag start yung year nila na masaya. Seeing those beautiful smiles from the kids because of happiness is definitely priceless!” she said. Her family supports her charitable projects and she sees herself as future Philanthropist and people of Milagros as the beneficiary.

GAS: What is the most beautiful thing about you?
Shane: My sense of humor.

GAS: Name one person you dislike.
Shane: Maine Mendoza

Shane: My friends wanted me to but it’s not really my cup of tea.

Bache21

As the cliché says, “Beauty fades, dumb is forever!” A beautiful woman without substance, no character, no values, no aspirations or no purpose is nothing. We judge by our own set of standards, I may have different from yours but one thing is for sure that these 20 stunning ladies is of our very own tribe. They are someone that we can be proud of and an inspiration among us. They are all unique, classy and amazing. I know there might be more beautiful, young and promising Milagreño ladies out there whom we havent noticed yet they do not have to prove themselves to us because we are indeed created beautiful and unique from each other.

I hope you have a great time reading this and until next time.
