2011 Lakan At Lakambini Ng Gensan Crowned

In a grand showcase of beauty and talent

Ten pairs of semi-finalists to the 2011 Lakan at Lakambini ng Gensan pageant

Proved to everyone why Gensan is called the Wellspring of Winners

With barely a week to rehearse for the Talent Presentation, Fashion Show and Pageant Night

I saw, for myself, how this year’s batch evolved from nerdy to worthy candidates

Their transformation as individuals surprised us pleasantly

And when the winners were announced, we couldn’t help but nod in agreement

Lakan 2011 is Richard Mark G. Nunez, a 19-year old Nursing student

He is attending school at the Gen. Santos Doctors Medical School Foundation, Inc.

During the Screening & Elimination Show, he looked just like any ordinary guy

He even wore Porontong Shorts during the swimwear segment which caused the crowd to snicker

It was when he performed his talent that we gave him a second look

His magic tricks became an instant hit which eventually earned him the Talent Award

Montage Digital Photography chose him as Mr. Photogenic too

18-year old Joanna Marie H. Tan is this year’s Lakambini ng Gensan

She is a Mass Communication student from the Notre Dame of Dadiangas University

Prior to the LLG Pageant, Joanne was crowned as 1st Runner-up Hiyas ng Notre Dame

You talk about queenly bearing from start to finish — Joanne is it!

She wowed everyone with her regal manner and friendly disposition

She may not be the best dancer but — darn — she gave her best just the same

Joanne also won as Best in Ethnic-Inspired Attire and Miss Freego Jeans

And to the other winners, congratulations are in order too

Lakan 1st Runner-up Jomie Fritz Zaulda

Lakambini 1st Runner-up Dallen Baldonado

Lakan 2nd Runner -up Francis Jay Lagudas

Lakambini 2nd Runner-up Gensan May Cabatingan
