Early this month I attended the Mr. International Philippines Finals Night in Makati City, upon the gracious invitation of Mike Lee, head organizer of the pageant. That night I was with my Canon SLR camera and a big stout zoom lens, just clicking away on what I thought was beautiful. Frankly not everyone on stage was click-worthy, but I found one guy particularly handsome. His name is Ian Leonel Porlayagan.

Ian was last year’s winner, unfortunately the organizers then (not Mike Lee) were not able to send him to Mexico where the international pageant was held. This year, with new organizers, he tried out again, hoping to be the country’s representative to Taiwan where the international pageant will be in November 2008. Sadly, he did not even make it to the top 3 slots. That’s heart wrenching. Typical Gulong ng Palad story.

When I was reviewing the photos I took, and I took a lot with Ian in it, I noticed a certain sadness in his eyes even while the contest was going on. Made me think, did Ian know deep inside that while he was the title-holder last year, this year it wouldn’t be him?
