Mr. and Ms. Olive C 2013 – Pageant Like No Other..
Pageant title only lasts for a year and is quickly forgotten by the time the next pageant comes around…. but friendships can last a lifetime..!
SEE THE IMAGES OF CELEBRATION OF TALENT, FRIENDSHIP, GENEROSITY AND BEAUTY of Mr. and Ms. Olive C!
When most people think of pageants, their first thought is COMPETITION, PRIZES AND CROWN! I think it is what it is… but last Friday it was a different story.. during Mr. and Ms Olive C Fashion Show and Meet and Greet. All candidates seems at ease and relax during their public appearance at Ali Mall. These teens treat each other as best friend! They are holding hands, sharing stories, helping another candidate in fixing their wardrobe and such other little thing that are beautiful to see.
I was able to witness countless of pageants in and out of the country, taking pictures of local and international queens and there are times that you enjoyed the event and there are events that you wish that it would be done as quickly as possible.. But this event was different, i enjoyed taking pictures of these dynamic teens both in center and back stage, but i prefer to take pictures in backstage though. It is the moment that they are on being natural and not in front of the camera and the audience.
I love also their compliments.. “kuya ang ganda ko jan!” or their simple request.. “kuya anung facebook mo? tag mo ako ha..”! Those are plain simple words but a music to my ears.. because they say it with “lambing”. And these young men and women would be the next most celebrated titleholders of the country.
As the saying goes “A crown makes a great memory but a Friend makes a great Future!” Mukhang ito ata ang motto ng mga Olive C candidates. And this is really true, the 2002 batch has a Facebook page to keep everyone updated and close. Hopefully these young achievers will keep it up and find at least one real Fs in this contest.. Fame, Fortune and Friends!
Not only about BEAUTY..
Mr. and Ms. Olive C is a celebration of Friendship, Talent and Generosity..
