A Message from 2017 Sinulog NZ Queen Grand Winner – Kimberly Tabar

Before I joined Sinulog Festival Queen, I was actually encountering a lot of personal issues in my life. When I heard that the team was looking for a new set of candidates for 2017, I did not hesitate to say no to a friend’s offer because I also wanted to make some time for myself during that period. I actually just joined and surrendered myself to Snr. Sto Nino, hoping that He will help me with what I am going through that time.

When I joined the pageant, I did not just gained a new set of family members but I also gained a stronger faith towards Snr. Sto Nino. Also, after serving Snr. Sto Nino as one of the Sinulog Festival Queens, I was able to survive nursing school. Believe me or not but getting a degree in nursing is not an easy task. Surviving nursing school requires alot courage, determination and most importantly, it requires lot of faith. It was like Snr. Sto Nino was giving back to me during my nursing journey by serving Him as a Sinulog Festival Queen.

I am not just thankful to Snr. Sto Nino for all the blessings that I have received so far but also I want to thank my parents for giving me the opportunity to be one of the Sinulog Festival Queens. It changed me into a much stronger individual and a much more hopeful person knowing that He will always be there to help me encounter all the failures and challenges in my life. I guarantee you that once you surrender everything to Snr. Sto Nino, all those pain and sufferings will be replaced with happiness and success.

A Message from 2017 Sinulog NZ Queen 1st Runner up Lianne Zhao

For me, Sinulog Queen Festival embodies all that is remarkable and unique about Senior Sto Nino. It is a great privilege and honor to become one of the Sinulog Queen Candidates. Wayback 2004, I always participate as one of the Sinulog dancer, never imagined myself joining in any pageant competition most especially Sinulog Queen New Zealand because I have not always been the most comfortable person in front of big crowds, and I worry about just being myself sometimes. But, I pushed past all the nervousness and ended up having the best time.

Because of this pageant I was able to gain a huge piece of confidence in myself to just let people see who I really am and be me.

Overall, I was able to learn a lot and gain valuable life lessons and skills from participating in this pageant. For the first time I had ever done dancing and walking solo in front of a large crowd, and I smiled my hardest as I walked across the stage wearing a beautiful dress. It was so enjoyable and unforgettable experience that I will treasure for the rest of my life.

And I believe this competition and winning the crown, it is not about beauty or beautiful dress it is about being yourself, making the most of the experience, and creating friendships and memories that you’ll remember forever. No matter how it all ends up, you should be so proud of yourself for putting everything you had out on the stage.

I’m in the middle of a whirlwind of emotions after winning the 1st Runner up. I wasn’t expecting this.Thank you Sinulog organisers for creating such a wonderful and awesome pageant that will linger in one’s memory most especially to the Queens. Above all, the Ultimate Creator the mightiest of them all who never left me, showered me with so much love and blessings – OUR GOD.

Thank you Senior Sto Nino

It’s truly a priceless experience I’ll never forget and cherish for the rest of my life.👌

Viva Pit Senior….
