As a "grand tribute" to Mother Mary, a Marian-inspired fashion event was held in this city on Friday, May 31

International designer and fashion photographer Eros Goze was the curator of the Santacruzan-style event held on the final day of the Marian month of May.

"Santa Maria, Sabsabong ti Mayo" began with Mass at the Baguio Cathedral followed by a procession where participating designers showed off their pieces inspired by the many faces of the Virgin Mary.

Some 25,707 signatures in a petition is urging Philippine Pres. Rodrigo Duterte to save the Philippine pine tree (Pinus insularis) in the city of Baguio, dubbed as the "city of pines".

The petition, penned by this writer who is also head of the environmental group Cordillera Ecological Center, raises the alarm on the wanton and unjustified killing of pine trees to accommodate hotels and business establishments. The city is the country's summer capital, visited by millions of tourists yearly because of its cool climate brought about by the pine trees.

Igorota Beauty Queen for Binibining Pilipinas 2019!

Kimberle Mae Licao Penchon, 26, an Igorota beauty queen from Barlig, Mountain Province will be representing the Province of La Union for this year's Binibining Pilipinas pageant.

This bewitching beauty is not participating in Binibining Pilipinas pageant for the first time, as earlier, she participated in Binibining Pilipinas 2015 edition, where she passed all the screenings and was handed an envelope congratulating her as one of the Official Candidates. But twelve hours, right before being named Binibini 9, she threw a bombshell. It was all about her stepping back from the pageant due to several commitments as Miss Beauche International 2014.

But after relinquishing her Miss Beauche International 2014 crown to Steffy Aberasturi, she again joined her hands with Binibining Pilipinas in the year 2016. She passed all the rounds with flying colours and made it to the Top 15 finalists at the conclusion of the grand finale of the pageant.

Apart from her journey with Binibining Pilipinas and Miss Beauche International 2014, she competed in other provincial beauty pageants as well where she marked her victory with the grace of her talent and secured various titles such as Miss Agoo 2012, Miss Baguio 2012, Mutia Ti La Union 2013, Miss HRAB 2014.

The said pageant's Grand Coronation Night will be at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on June 9.
