Amidst the non-stop rains flooding Metro Manila and tropical storm Maring adding more damage to an already super bad weather affecting a good part of Luzon, I just want to share the initial photographs of our Mutya Datul a couple of days after safely arriving in Minsk, Belarus for Miss Supranational 2013.
During one of the pre-pageant gatherings where all candidates were introduced to some members of the Press, Miss Philippines debuted her appearance wearing a black dress, simply made-up and with full smile on her face. It’s not hard for her to stand out, given a fresh and charming disposition that keeps her in good stead. And while this is still a competition where outshining each other is the usual norm, the natural warmth of our entry is evident.
Of course, we also know by now that there are two other ladies with Pinoy connections participating in the same. Full-blooded Filipina Suzette Hernandez is representing Canada, while half-Filipina Marie Molo Peter is wearing Norway’s sash. I’m pretty sure the three have already started bonding, and should get closer as the weeks progress.
Stay tuned for more updates from Belarus in the days to come! All photos courtesy of dengi.onliner.by
P.S. Mutya’s roommate is Nancy Marcus of Malaysia.
