    CALIFORNIA, United States—Miss Philippines, Ariana Manibog Varela, 19, from Los Angeles, California won the coveted title of Miss Asia USA 2010.

    Varela also won best in cultural costume and best in swimsuit.

    The other winners were: 1st runner up, Jenny Cho, Miss Korea; 2nd runner up, Sarah Makandura, Miss Sri Lanka; 3rd runner up, Natalie Dinatale, Miss Lebanon; 4th runner up, Jennifer Gonzalez, Miss Taiwan.

    Varela is the daughter of Lana Manibog Varela and Dr. Gilbert Varela. She is also the granddaughter of former Mayor Monty Manibog and Jean Manibog of Monterey Park

    This is Varela's very first pageant. With absolutely no prior experience in pageants, she swept the title over the other Asian country representatives from across the US.

    Ariana was born into generations of Manibog beauties. Her mother, Lana Manibog, was former Southern California title holder and placed top finalist in Miss California USA. Her aunt, Francel Manibog Caracol, was finalist and won Queen of Oceania in Miss World 1988. And her main coach and mentor and auntie was former Binibining Pilipinas USA and winner of Binibining Pilipinas International 1982, Lisa Manibog.

    Varela's lavender floral gown and cultural costume (terno) with head dress were personally designed by Filipino-American haute couture designer Joey Galon of Joey Galon Atelier in Las Vegas, Nevada and Los Angeles, California.

    Which is why you need PINOY designer for the gown and costume. Palitan na yung namamahala for almost a decade na!

    It depends if it's more good than bad, it's for the *dress ১০ owner's discretion.

    She is more of a Latina than a Filipina.
    Her mother is only 1/4 Filipino (1/2 Irish, 1/4 Spanish, 1/4 Filipino) while her father is 100% Costa Rican.

    I guess even if one has only a molecule of Filipino blood that person would qualify as a Filipino if it will bring reflected glory to Pinoys everywhere.

    But if one has more than 50% Pinoy blood, that person will deny being a Pinoy so as not to be grouped with the likes of the hostage taker and the bumbling police squad.

    So, when is one a Filipino...whenever it will serves one just fine.

    Well, she didn't resent that she represented the Philippines. And Latin countries didn't make any protest. So well and good then.
