Mr. and Ms. Bicol University 2012 | CENg’s Daniel Joshua Dado and CE’s Monalyn Abaluado

Mr. Engineering Daniel Joshua Dado and Ms. Education Monalyn Abaluado were declared Mr. and Ms. Bicol University (BU) 2012. The teenage-themed coronation night was held on September 19, 2012 at Albay Astrodome, Legazpi City. The night has drawn to a big surprise as dark horses of the competition took home the coveted titles, beating the social media and crowd favorites.

Flash-mob-inspired production number took place after the program’s lead up to the amazement and cheering of the crowd. All clad in colorful costumes and wigs, the candidates formally opened the competition by dancing to the tune of Katy Perry songs.

Encouraging message was given by no less than Bicol University President Fay Lea Patria M.
