Known for its wide ranging malls and shopping centers, entertainment and sports hub and now for high-rise residential and business towers, Araneta Center still and will continue to amaze and surprise us in the years to come. A #PhotowalkinAraneta came into picture when Binibining Pilipinas Supranational 2017 Chanel Olive Thomas and Miss Grand International 2017 second runner-up Elizabeth Clenci launched it on January 15, 2018. The first in Metro Manila,  " Manhattan Row " is now an added favorite attraction for selfie lover motorists and pedestrians. These locally made lanterns which have been placed since July 2017, glitters and glows from 6:00pm until 11:00pm are powered by electricity saving, energy efficient  and environment friendly LED lights.
Apart from capturing a perfect #PhotowalkinAraneta strip, patrons will be surprised as soon as they have a glimpse of Araneta Center's Foodestrian Art Lane aside from Gateway Mall, Farmer's Plaza and Ali Mall fine dining readily available. University of the Philippines Fine Arts students painted the pedestrian stretch along General Malvar Avenue corner Times Square and Roxas Avenue,  featuring kitchen utensils, pastries, drinks and ice cream. Araneta Center plans to extend this artsy and brightly theme within the area due to the positive response from the general public.  

An interview with the reigning Binibining Pilipinas queens took place at Pizza Hut Gateway Mall were professional  and amateur photographers, media and bloggers flocked and flanked on hot afternoon of April 11. Miss Universe Philippines Catriona Gray, Binibining Pilipinas International Maria Ahtisa Manalo, Binibining Pilipinas Supranational Jehza Mae Huelar, Binibining Pilipinas Grand International Eva Psychee Patalinjug, Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental Karen Juanita Gallman, Binibining Pilipinas Globe Michelle Theresa Gumabao and 2nd Runner-up Samantha Bernardo graced the event prior to heading to Manhattan Row. 

In a rare opportunity, time to get up close and personal with these queens and it also marked as my first interview with these radiant queens after winning the crown. It was in this moment that I got a chance to ask them and see how witty they are, how brainy they are, how sexy they are in responding? See the beauty on the trimmed clips below.
