CITY OF MALOLOS – Out of 36 contenders, the prides of San Rafael and Bulakan towns were hailed as the new Hari at Reyna ng Singkaban 2018 during the Coronation Night held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium in this city last night.
Reyna ng Singkaban 2018 Aubrhie Cindyrelle Carpio from Bulakan said that she couldn’t believe she won the title and shared the biggest challenge she had to face for the pageant, to lose weight from 62 kg to 48 kg.
“Sobrang saya. Apart from losing weight, I visited several tourist destinations in the province. Inaral ko talaga kung sino si Marcelo H. Del Pilar at iba pang mga bayani ng lalawigan at naging bahagi nila sa kasaysayan. Indeed, if you really want something and put your heart to it, kaya mong maging iyon,” Carpio said.
Being on the same page, Hari ng Singkaban 2018 Kyle Jebbo Dela Fuente from San Rafael agreed how diet, eight hours of sleep and being fit are important factors in taking care of one’s self.
“Kailangan po talaga maging disciplined ka, sundin mo ‘yung tamang diet, tamang oras ng pagtulog, pagkain ng healthy dahil makikita naman po ‘yun sa’yo, magre-reflect po ‘yung positive result sa katawan mo,” Dela Fuente said.
Meanwhile, Dr. Eliseo Dela Cruz, head of the Provincial History, Arts, Culture and Tourism Office, was thankful that despite moving the schedule to a new date due to typhoon Ompong, Bulakenyos still showed full support in the event.
“Ito po’y naging matagumpay dahil sa inyong lahat. Salamat po,” Dela Cruz said and ended his speech promoting #singkabanfestival2018 and #BulacanBabalikbalikan.
