Along with 2 blogger-friends, I witnessed the Miss Kagay-an 2012 swimsuit competition held last August 18, 2012 at the poolside of a hotel in Cagayan de Oro City.
As I previously mentioned to you all, Mindanaoan.com is an official media partner for the Miss Kagay-an 2012 beauty pageant, which is one of the core events for the Kagay-an Festival 2012, the annual fiesta in Cagayan de Oro City in honor of patron Saint Augustine.
Check out one of the Miss Kagay-an 2012 billboards (the URL of Mindanaoan.com is there somewhere :P)
Anyways, here are some of the photos I took during the Miss Kagay-an 2012 swimsuit competition. Apologies for the poor photo composition – there were a lot of shutterbugs that day and I also failed to bring my DSLR.
By the way, you can find the individual photos of the official candidates of the Miss Kagay-an 2012 pageant here.
