New “Bb. Kapamilya Barkadahan” queen also to be named, with performances from Kapamilya stars Jake Cuenca and Maxine Medina.

A new queen is about to be named in the highly anticipated beauty pageant for the overseas Filipinos in Hong Kong, the “Ms. Barkadahan 2019”, happening on November 17 at the Macpherson Stadium, in Mongkok.

This is the second year that TFC is partnering with Hong Kong’s telecommunications company, SmarTone Mobile Communications Limited, in organizing the annual “Ms. Barkadahan 2019” beauty pageant, which aims to empower and inspire overseas Filipinos by putting the spotlight on their success in a foreign land.

Aside from ABS-CBN Chairman Mark Lopez gracing last year’s event, the 2018 “Ms. Barkadahan” winner, Melodie Duag, got an extra treat from TFC after she got to have a studio tour and watch the variety show “It’s Showtime” live with her family.

Meantime, this year, there are ten ladies who will vie for the “Ms. Barkadahan” title and bring home prizes not only for the crowned queen but also for the OFW group she has chosen.

Before they grace the “Ms. Barkadahan” stage on November 17, people all over the world will get to know the ten candidates through the eyes of their loved ones in the feature stories that will be uploaded on the “Ms. Barkadahan 2019” microsite,

On the second year as well, the public will also have a hand in choosing who among the candidates embodies the Kapamilya spirit—someone who gives her best in everything she does but maintains being a role model to others—and follow the footsteps of Gelby Joy Genosas and be named “Bb. Kapamilya Barkadahan 2019”.

To vote, visit and create an account at and click the “Vote” button either at the profile of your preferred candidate or at the homepage of the microsite. Only one vote per account in a day is allowed.

Meantime, everyone in the event is in for a treat as TFC flies to Hong Kong “Los Bastardos” stars, Jake Cuenca and Maxine Medina, who will prepare performances that will surely have everyone on their feet.
