The Miss Dumaguete 2013 Talent Night was held last night in Quezon Park. The VIPs of Dumaguete and a good crowd witnessed the eight lovely ladies competing with their talent for the Miss Dumaguete 2013 title. The event started with only 30 minutes delay, which is already an outstanding performance by the organizer of the Miss Dumaguete 2013 event.
After the invocation and the national anthem all eight candidates presented their Festival Costumes. Following the first round, our boss, Manuel “Chiquiting” Sagarbarria was called on Stage. He did not only declare the the 65th charter day celebrations and the Sandurot Festival 2013 opened, he also announced a generous 1 Million Peso donation for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda, which devestated some areas of the Philippine archipelago last Friday.
After the opening ceremony the talent portion started. The audience in Quezon Park saw a great show where all candidates for Miss Dumaguete 2013 showed to be capable to wear the crown.
One word of critics might still be allowed. As it is understandable, that not all candidates have a special gift, which they can present on a stage (writing, chess or blogging as an example), they obviously need to listen to their choreographs what to present on stage.
The candidates simply relay on their choreographers. We believe those, who also get quite some money for that, should also come up with nice ideas and not warming up a performance, they made for another contest, which was held not even 2 month ago. One of the performances was a simple warm-up of a choreography of Miss Negros Oriental High School 2013, where thousands saw in a fully filled Maccias Sports Complex the exact same performance (and it wasn’t a very successful one at the Miss NOHS event either). This is not only laziness of the choreographer, it is also extremely unfair to the candidate, who probably pays good money to that person, to help her.
