During our time, there were still no Beauty Pageants. It may be because; the Kalinga people then were unaware of the beauty that lies amidst them. And I’m not talking about physical beauty but of a loveliness and pureness of heart that spring from within the depths of the soul that radiates to the outside to make a person beautiful.
The Kalinga people have always been beautiful to me. In Tabuk, Kalinga, A beauty pageant was held and these are the dazzling Kalinga women who won in the pageant.
Thanks again to Jerry Tieng for the pictures.
