excerpts from an article by Butch Francisco, The Reviewer, People's Journal, 24 February 1999, p. 16

In spite of the fact that the show went on for almost four hours, the recently-concluded Binibining Pilipinas '99 did not come out boring at all. The program's theme was ballroom dancing and the 29 candidates opened the show with a rousing number where they swayed to an upbeat version of "I Could Have Danced All Night" from "My Fair Lady."

The other production numbers were equally well-staged: one had last year's Binibini title-holders dancing with Michael Flores, KC Montero and Dingdong Dantes, while the other had Mon David crooning to the candidates.
