Ladies of the Earth

How I longed to be in Boracay this November. Why? It is because beauties from around the world are competing for the title of Miss Earth 2009. Philippines is hosting the pageant since it started in 2001 and it’s been scheduled to be showcased at the most popular and beautiful island in the country, the white sand-laden beach of Boracay on November 22nd this year. It will be held at the Boracay Ecovillage Resort and Convention Center.

For the first time, the ninth edition of the pageant will be held outside Luzon peninsula. The scenic beauty of Boracay island just an hour away from Caticlan, Aklan in Visayan region will surely draw tourists and admirers of the Earth beauties.

Press Presentation

It was conducted last Wednesday afternoon, November 4, 2009 at the mansion of renowned hairdresser Ricky Reyes. Although the rain ruined the lawn setup, they continued inside the beauty guru’s spacious sala.

Candidates promote recycling to lessen the effects of climate change. Early favorites are Ms. Spain. Ms. Latvia, Ms. Thailand and Ms. Philippines.

Why Miss Earth?

A year after the third millenium, we've experienced the effects of the millenium bug. How can we forget the suicide bombing of the Twin Tower Building in New York. or the unforgettable 9/11 incident. Coinciding this big incident was also the big climate change. Global warming is starting to be taken into consideration. The risks of this phenomena have been the center of topic in many corporate events or summit. Even former US Vice President Al Gore created a documentary about this issue. That is the reason why Miss Earth beauty pageant was organized in 2001. The Philippines always serves as the perennial host of this event. It is also part of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

Beauty Pageant for a Cause

There are eighty hopefuls from different countries who will compete for the title. Miss Earth delegates will be divided into 3 groups for a week and each group will have its finalist in different categories to compete for the final competitions.

Aside from the title Miss Earth 2009, other titles include Miss Air and Miss Water.

So, if you have time, try to visit the Island of Boracay and cheer for your candidate for the Grand Coronation Night.
