Bianca Manalo excitedly revealed that her older sister Kate Manalo is looking into joining the Guinness Book of World Records.
Bianca says her sister Kate hopes to get them recognized for being national beauty queen titleholders.
“Kasi ni-research niya daw ‘yan sa internet. Meron daw magkakapatid na Miss Carolina lang, hindi Miss USA. Kasi kami, Miss Philippines kaming tatlo eh. Hindi lang Miss Makati or Miss Pampanga, Miss Philippines so mag-a-apply daw kami,” she said in an interview at Tokyo Posh’s 7th anniversary event where the Hairband, a no-tape, no-clip hair extension, was launched.
It may be recalled that Bianca was crowned Binibining Pilipinas Universe in 2009, while her older sister Kate won the Binibining Pilipinas-World title in 2002 and even placed among the Top 10 semi-finalist in the 2002 Miss World pageant.
Their youngest sister Nichole Manalo, meanwhile, took home the Binibining Pilipinas Globe crown during the April 17 coronation night.
Speaking of Nichole, Bianca shared that her sister is currently gearing up for the Miss Globe pageant happening in Montreal, Canada on September 20.
She also happily shared that their entire family is flying to the venue to support Nichole, just like what they did when she competed in the Bahamas seven years ago.
The My Super D star stressed that competing internationally is an altogether different experience.
“Sabi ko hindi pa siya nagco-compete internationally so kung ano man ang mga ginagawa nila today, dagdag experience lang ‘yun. ‘Yung parang doon mo mare-realize na your horizon is still expanding. Marami kapang makikilalang ibang tao,” she said.
“Pero kapag nag-compete kana abroad tapos babalik ka dito iba na ang confidence mo eh. Hindi ‘yung mayabang na confidence ha! ‘Yung talagang you know how to handle yourself properly talaga,” she added.
Did she give Nichole tips about competing abroad?
“Basta sabi ko sakanya magpakatotoo siya eh. Sabi ko sakanya dapat parating maganda ang intentions niya. Hindi pwedeng nakikipagplastikan ka. Kailangan malinis ang puso mo,” she said.
According to Bianca, her sister is undergoing several trainings for Q&A and walking,
Nichole will be joined in the pageant by the reigning 2015 Miss Globe, Miss Philippines Ann Lorraine Colis.
