THE REIGNING MUTYA NG TAGUM CITY AND HER JOURNEY

For some, it was just a night of glitz and glamour when the new Mutya ng Tagum City was crowned on November 20, 2014 but for the lovely Korina Dayan Sawan, the reigning Mutya ng Tagum City who bested other nine candidates, that night was a life-changing moment for her and a beginning of her new journey as the city’s ambassadress of goodwill.
Although she joined and won other beauty pageants in the past, joining Mutya ng Tagum City had always been her dream. Winning the crown was something she never expected. All she wished was just to be included in the Top 5. But fate had another plan for her. Her beauty, charm and wit brought her to more than what she expected – to bring home the crown and reign for one year.
For her, it was something that God has given her for she believes that not every girl is given the opportunity to become the Mutya. Thus, she vowed to do her best to fulfill the tasks given to her and savor every moment while she’s still in the reign.

As the city’s ambassadress of goodwill, this 20 year old lass who represented Barangay Mankilam during the pageant will take part with the City Government in extending programs and projects in the community. Korina is now fulfilling her duties and responsibilities focusing on Wellness, Sports and Health which is the theme of last year’s pageant.

Here’s The Travel Teller conversation with Korina Sawan, the 2014 Mutya ng Tagum City:

The Travel Teller: WhaT pushed you to join Mutya ng Tagum City aside from representing your Barangay?

Korina Sawan: Joining Mutya ng Tagum City for me is a dream come true. My eagerness to prove to myself and to other people that I can be the next Mutya ng Tagum pushed me to join.
The Travel Teller: What were your preparations before joining the pageant?

Korina Sawan: Honestly, I had a short time preparing for the pageant as I was busy with my studies especially with my Omnibus Class. I am a graduating student and I wasn’t allowed to leave my class. So, what I did, I watched Youtube videos about Miss Universe and other pageants where I could get better ideas on how to walk, how to answer questions, how to pose and other relevant things about beauty pageants.
The Travel Teller: What have you become after being crowned as the Mutya ng Tagum City 2014?
Korina Sawan: Well I think I’m just the same Korina as before but one thing that changed after Mutya is that I became mature. I’ve realized that I’ve got bigger responsibilities now as a Mutya ng Tagum 2014.
The Travel Teller: Do you have planned or lined-up activities as part of your duties and responsibilities as the Mutya ng Tagum City 2014?
Korina Sawan: The theme of Mutya ng Tagum City last year is about Wellness, Sports and Health. In line with that, I am proposing for a Summer Sports Training Program for the youth in partnership with Barangay Mankilam and the City Government. I am excited to work for it and I hope it will be implemented soon.
The Travel Teller: As the reigning Mutya ng Tagum, how can you promote Tagum City as a tourism destination in Davao Region?
Korina Sawan: I can help promote Tagum City as a tourism destination by saying good things about our beloved city. Tagum City is generally safe.  We celebrate unique events and colorful festivals whole year round. There are great places that our city has to offer. And of course the true nature of our people. Tagumenos are known friendly, hospitable and happy people.
The Travel Teller: What is your message to the people of Tagum City and those aspiring to become a beauty queen like you?

Korina Sawan: To all Tagumenyos, daghang salamat sa supporta ug pagsalig sa akoa. Nagbag-o akong kinabuhi tungod sa Mutya, gusto ko makatabang sa akong kaugalingong pamaagi para sa kalambuan sa atong siyudad. Tagum, Tagumpay! To the aspiring beauty queens, work hard and pray harder if you want to achieve something. Keep the faith! Great things happen in God’s perfect time.


Korina is now a graduating student of Mindanao Kokusai Daigaku (Mindanao International College) taking up Bachelor of Science major in International Studies and currently working with Department of Tourism – Region XI as part of her OJT. According to her, working with DOT-XI is a great experience she’ll definitely cherish. And she believes that Mutya ng Tagum City 2014 is her ticket why she’s there.

The annual search for the Mutya ng Tagum City is organized by the City Government of Tagum through the Tagum City Tourism Council in partnership with Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation that aims to not only showcase the candidates’ beauty but also their commitment to take part in community-building.

Have you ever wondered how much does a Hermes handbags cost?Louis Vuitton Handbag doesn’t produce only Birkin and Kelly. I came across these days on a beautiful, simple, yet elegant bag from Fake Mulberry .And guess what! An original one is around $9400, a lot of money if you ask me, but I found the same Rolex Watches (a replica obviously)only $306.90. This is almost a bargain! No, not almost. It is a bargain given that the replica Rolex Air Kingis so close to the original that you can hardly make the difference.
