Mutya ng Palawan is one of the highlights at Baragatan sa PalawanFestival 2017. Where almost every municipalitysends their candidate and hoping to bring home that golden crown embellished with authentic south sea pearls. That crown will surely look glamorously grand to anyone who'll win the title.

Mutya ng Palawan 2015 - Sharla Santillan

Presenting the Mutya ng Palawan Candidates
In no particular order. Let's hear what each candidate has to say about the municipality they represent.

Mutya ng Araceli - Mary Honelene Gorosin 

Mutya ng Taytay -  Marie Victoria Torres

Mutya ng El Nido - Cherry Mae Distal 
 Mutya ng Palawan fascinates me so much, maybe because I'm a fan of folk dances and she dances so well. Plus she is charming too.
Mutya ng Aborlan - Venus Johnson 
Mutya ng Aborlan looks like Marian Rivera to me.
Mutya ng Busuanga - Roxanne Jay Amit 
Mutya ng Busuanga is the only one who presented and acting talent during the Talent Night. All I can remember is... Leo :)
Mutya ng Bataraza - Vanessa Yap 

Mutya ng Culion - Chister Jem Quimzon 
 Mutya ng Culion dances well too. I think she presented a ballroom like talent. And her custome is pretty cute too. Purple.
Mutya ng Coron - Joanna Lyla De Guia 
Mutya ng Coron is Pretty but a bit shy. She just graduated from high school. 
BTW her talent? weight lifting. Awesome!!!

Mutya ng Brooke's Point - Reah Sadang 
Mutya ng Brooke's point looks like Mirriam Quiambao to me. At first, she wasn't that stunning at all. But later that night, She conquered it all.

Mutya ng Cuyo - Kathreen Grace Ahorro 
 Mutya ng Cuyo is one of the crowds favorite. She's pretty and charming too with that sophisticated and classic glances, She can go along way.
Mutya ng Kalayaan - Mary Justine Anne Lucero 

Mutya ng Kalayaan is my top choice. She carried herself well, having a nice smile and beautiful eyes and of course the not to be missed gorgeous body. Shocks! am I on a girl crushing mode on?

Mutya ng Quezon - Mirah Cornelia 
Mutya ng Quezon, there is something about this girl.. There's this moment that she just popped and instantly became noticeable. For me she can be a model material. 

Mutya ng Magsaysay - Rachel Lee Aniar 
 Mutya ng Magsaysay is one of the pretty faces there is. Slighty, hawig nya si Queen P,
Mutya ng Rizal - Arjane Junio Cafugauan 
Mutya ng Rizal has stage presence. And she walks tall.

Mutya ng Roxas - Analey Tansiongco 
Mutya ng Roxas, looks like Maja Salvador in some angles.

Mutya ng Puerto Princesa - Phillline Louisse Ivy Dimla 

Mutya ng Puerto Princesa, looks like shaina magdayao for me.

On this point, I was like, "What's with Palawan? Maybe they have the best oxygen, the perfect grain of rice or was it the genes? That all of the candidates has its own unique beauty in it. And honestly, I it was sooo hard to pick just one to go or side for?

Then comes the talent night with the usual and unusual talent that some got my jaws dropped and eyes pop. Also, there's one talent that I kinda felt meh' and also one where felt worried if she's ok after her stunt. See it for yourself.
Talent Night

Now, this part is what Gabby Concepcion is been waiting for. Kidding aside, or maybe not I didn't like the jokes he throws in :P And seems like Venus Raj can't stand it either :P But hey I'm not hating G, also not lovin it.
Swimwear Competition

I like the swimwear design here. It's not too sexy, not boring and still bagay sa kahit anong body frame. Looks so artsy and fab to me. I want one!!!
