We Found Beauty at Calle Crisologo of Vigan, Ilocos Sur

Wazzup Pilipinas!

We explored Calle Crisologo and other historical sights of Vigan for the nth time and they are still too awesome for our selfies and photo ops.

To match the feel of these heritage home we've edited our photos to make them look vintage, or is the right word antiquated, or historical, or whatever you may call it, walking along the streets of Calle Crisologo is like traveling on a time machine - the ride on a Calesa (not just around Calle Crisologo) is more than majestic.

The calesa ride only cost P150 per hour, but you'll definitely need more than an hour if you would really like to immense yourself thoroughly all over Vigan. We've rented a calesa to tour some sites - from the famous bell tower or belfry near the Saint Augustine Parish Church, commonly known as Bantay Church (because it's located at Bantay, Ilocos Sur), to the Hidden Garden. But we're going to tell the story of each place on a per blog  post basis - meaning one attraction per blog post.

Editing the photos of Calle Crisologo to make them look old gives out the vibes of a century when the Spaniards greatly influenced us - from the architecture to the overall culture. Oh, the Filipino is a merging of many traits and influenced by many races. Though our roots may have been somewhat lost due to the many influences, I guess that's how Filipinos are greatly leading the way towards many achievements.

One of these achievements is to be proudly among the countries whose beauty pageant candidates are often emerging as victorious. 

We can't hide the fact that our women have become even beautiful when one of their parents is married to a foreigner. The offspring are often leading the beauty pageant or model search competitions to become world-class beauty queens.

Miss Tourism Philippines 2017 candidates recently visited Vigan, Ilocos Sur as part of their commitment of being tourism ambassadors. Calle Crisologo is just one of the many places they've toured. Below are just some of the ladies out of a total of 29 candidates all vying for the highest title.

I do believe that even the Filipina of pure Filipino origin and has never even stepped out of the Philippines are equally beautiful, if not better, on their own rightful existence. As we all know, beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. Winners are often judged not on their beauty alone but also on their talent, intellect, and emotional literacy. Often than not, those who become beauty queens are those that survived the dreaded Question and Answer portion. You are in luck when you are able to come up with a smart answer even under the nerve-racking and suspenseful moment.
