Photos of Real Asian (Non-Celebrities) from a Facebook page called “Modern Filipina Beauties”

I stumbled upon a Facebook community called “Modern Filipina Beauties”, a page that contained lots of photos of Pinay girls. Ah the wonders of walking through various social networking sites!

I am featuring a few of them, which has come to my liking – particularly giving attention to “real Asians” who are non-celebrities.

Here we go! Hope you like these photos.

[UPDATE 6-5-2012: An anonymous reader said - see comments below - that some of our featured girls in this post are not Pinays. I believe he/she is right. I was misinformed by the website where I got the data from. As a sign of good faith, I am not altering this post. I'm issuing this update as an "errata".]

Of course we do not mean that Filipina celebrities are “fake” or not “real Asians”. They are as real as Asian beauties could be. With this post, I intend to prove that Pinay non-celebrities could be as beautiful as their counterparts in movies and television!

10 Lovely Pinay Moms (My Mothers' Day Special)

While contemplating on what gifts to give my mom, I had a "eureka" moment of posting a list of ten lovely Filipina mothers - who despite their toned-down careers as celebrities after focusing on their kids and on building a nice home and family - still keep themselves pretty and alluring.

Here are my top 10 lovely Pinay/Filipina moms (this blog's Mothers' Day special).

Dawn Zulueta-Lagdameo

Lucy Torres-Gomez

Kris Aquino-Yap

Lea Salonga-Chien

Charlene Gonzales-Muhlach

Gelli de Belen-Rivera

Regine Tolentino Vera-Perez

Donita Rose-Villarama

Carmina Villaroel-Legaspi

Claudine Barreto-Santiago 
(‘Coz she could really pack a punch! Poor media-man and bully Mon Tulfo!)

By the way, in case you still don't know your gifts for mom, here are a few suggestions: (a) boxes of chocolate (they’re still girls inside so they can’t resist chocolates), (b) flower delivery (yes, because she is still girly-girl), (c) iPhoto albums (for lasting memories), (d) books (use free Amazon shipping for convenience), (e) baby monitors, (f) bath toys (for her kid or grandson/daughter).

Lastly, I greet all mums a “happy mother’s day” with a graphic I got from Facebook (no other than the Queen Mum herself!)  LOL

Philippine Airlines Flight Stewardess, Beauty Queen Bianca Manalo | Hot Photos

While browsing through biographies and profiles of Filipina celebrities and beauty queens, I came across Miss Bianca Manalo, a real non-showbiz Pinay, a working-class stunner, before she was "discovered". 

On November 28, 1986, our featured Filipina beautiful girl was born (Pamela Biance, surname Ramos). She worked as a flight attendant/stewardess for the domestic operations of national flag carrier Philippine Airlines before she grabbed the Miss Binibining Pilipinas - Universe crown (Miss Philippines) in 2009. In the same year, she represented the country in the Miss Universe pageant.

Photos of Bianca as a pageant queen (below).

She comes from long line of beauty queens. She is sister to Katherine Anne Manalo, a Top 10 finalist of the prestigious 2002 Miss World pageant. She is also a niece of Miss Nini Ramos, a top 15 semi-finalist of Miss International 1968.

After the national pageant thrust her into the limelight, she was taken in as talent of media network ABS-CBN. Miss Bianca Manalo also enjoys the recognition of the being the first Filipina and Asian woman to endorse L'Oreal Matrix (an international beauty product/cosmetic brand).

Here are her "hot photos"of our favorite flight stewardess from FHM Philippines, September 2010 issue (she featured as a cover girl).

Filipina Miss Asia Carolinas Candidate Monique Tuzon

Lest I'd be charged of being biased towards Filipinas with mixed ethnicity particularly those with Caucasian blood, I present to you Miss Monique Tuzon. 

As you could see my posts usually feature celebrities who are mostly “mixed” (some call them Eurasians, but here in the islands we lovingly call them "mestizas"). I think, their dominance in Philippine showbiz is caused by a Westernized concept of beauty promoted by our local media.  

Now to unburden me of guilt, I am featuring: Ms. Monique Tuzon. Here she is, dressed in traditional "Filipiniana" wear (national costume).

Monique Tuzon is Miss Philippines candidate for Miss Asia Carolinas, a pageant organized by a non-profit organization based in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

She is Asian-American but her looks are more Filipina; I believe her parents are Pinoys who migrated to the US because she is a real pure Pinay beauty. I encourage all our kababayan (countrymen) to support her! 

Oh I almost forgot. A meaningful Labor Day to all the workers of the world! Never forget the cause! In union, there is strength!
