God is great! I was one of the lucky bloggers who was invited by TV5 Kapatid network, and Miss World Philippines to watch the beautiful pageant night held at Manila Hotel, Sunday, June 24, 2012, LIVE!
Yes, it's live, my dear readers! You could imagine my happiness. I was so happy and thankful at the same time. Imagine, all you can see are beautiful beings all night long! I was so kilig when I saw the dashing James Younghusband. It so happened that he is one of the judges of the Miss World Philippines 2012.

Candidate No. 22, Queenierich Rehman won the most coveted Miss World Philippines 2012 crown at the recently-concluded coronation night.

Kaye Michelle Duran Agnes' Family

My brother and I traveled to Manila Hotel to interview Kaye Michelle Duran Agnes' family.   I was able to talk to her mom earlier over the cellular phone but we decided to go and meet her in person at the Manila Hotel's lobby.  Tita Angie Duran Agnes smiled and waved at us when she saw us looking around the lobby. It was our first time to meet Kaye Agnes' family in person.
Kaye's mom said that Kaye Michelle Duran Agnes is the third among six siblings. She belong to a very closely knit family in Sorsogon.
When Kaye Michelle Duran Agnes went to Spain to work, she really missed her family in Sorsogon.
According to Mrs. Agnes Kaye's real height is 5'7 1/2". Kaye became a print ad model when she made it to the ten finalist of Ford Supermodel of The Philippines way back in 2006.
 Kaye was a table tennis player at the Bicol Meet during her high school years. Kaye loves Jogging, playing badminton, lawn tennis and table tennis.

Yes, Kaye Michelle Duran Agnes worked for two years in Barcelona, Spain as a Bartender/ Receptionist/ Model.
Her mom, Angelita Duran Agnes, stands at  5'3" and her husband, Kaye's dad, Manuel Peralta Agnes is 5'10". No wonder Kaye's real height is 5'7 1/2" They're a very happy family. Her mom work as a hotel manager at Fernando's Hotel in Sorsogon City. She is the daughter of Former Mayor Fernando Duran of Sorsogon City. She also used to own Fernando 168 Bistro in Sorsogon City.
Her mom learned about the Miss World Philippines contest from her Facebook friend from Naga City - Mrs. Eleanor Zuniga Montemayor. So it was only a few days before the final selection that Kaye learned about the Miss World Philippines contest. According to Kaye's mom, Kaye got convinced and decided to try her luck at the Miss World Philippines contest when she saw the different advocacies and charity works of Miss World Philippines at their website.

I also learned from her mom that Kaye is the co-founder of an advocacy group that feeds children in Sorsogon together with her aunt Vicky Duran. The foundation's name is Andelana.

Kaye just arrived back in the Philippines last January, 2012. She was away from her family for two long years because she was working in Spain to help finance their foundation in Sorsogon.

Here are the messages for Kaye Michelle Agnes from her family:

Kaye Michelle Duran Agnes is Sorsogon's Pride to the Miss World Philippines

Miss World Philippines Candidate Number 20, Kaye Michelle Duran Agnes, was born and raised in Sorsogon.

Sorsogon is world famous for its Butanding.
Sorsogon is a province in the Philippines located in the Bicol Region. 
Sorsogon is located in the southernmost province in Luzon and is subdivided into fourteen (14) towns and one (1) city. Its capital is Sorsogon City and borders the province of Albay to the north. Sorsogon is at the tip of the Bicol Peninsula and faces the island of Samar to the southeast across the San Bernardino Strait and Ticao Island to the southwest. "Sorsogueños" is how the people of Sorsogon call themselves.
One of the festivals in Sorsogon City is Pili Festival which honors the Pili nut and tree which is indigenous to the province. The festival coincides with the town fiesta of Sorsogon City. Celebrations include street dancing by locals donning pili nut costumes, cooking competitions, fireworks displays, and even a nutcracking session along the road by the locals.
