Parul and roomie Shauny Bult
Yesterday, the swimsuit competition of Miss Grand International 2015 took place at the Kacha Resort and Spa Koh Chang in Koh Chang Island, Trat Province of Thailand. And while Miss Philippines Parul Shah wasn’t one of the tallest, she stood ten feet tall during her spotlight presentation that she firmly held her own side by side the other candidates with her smooth glide and well-trained stance.
The event, already considered the first round of official preliminaries for Miss Grand International 2015, serves as a good preview of all the delegates in contention. One of them will be named Best in Swimsuit during the finals.

Miss Philippines Parul Shah on her way to Central World for the Welcome and Press Conference of Miss Grand International 2015
Today, the Official Welcome and Press Conference of Miss Grand International 2015 was held inside Central World in the heart of Bangkok’s shopping district. The more than sixty (60) candidates were all present to be introduced to the invited members of the media, including our Miss Philippines Parul Shah who even had an online makeup tutorial with KF’s Giovanni Lazaro Flores before joining the other ladies for today’s event. Talk about adjusting the look depending on the nature of the day’s activity, our bet is always prepared. :-)
Miss Philippines Parul Shah always looks amazing

While the finals of Miss Grand International 2015 won’t be until October 25, the judgment night of Miss Globe 2015 will already take place at the Rose Theater this coming Thursday, October 8 (Friday early morning in Manila).
And some sources are saying that Miss Philippines Ann Colis is now the girl to beat, unless she gets upended by someone else. But all things being fair and equal, we might just get our first Miss Globe crown soon. Things are simply going her way, inspite of the small intrigues and rumors along the way.
As for Parul in Bangkok, she is just starting her trek. With Miss India Vartika Singh, she is already expected to closely bond with (photo below) just like with roomie Shauny Bult of Netherlands. The upcoming days will see them enjoying the sights of the Land of Smiles and neighboring provinces. I’d like to see how she will present herself on a daily basis.
Good luck to you, Ann and Parul! ;-)

There must really be something about Miss Grand Netherlands 2015 Shauny Bult that brings her close to our Bb. Pilipinas Queens as pageant roommates. Last year, she ended up sharing a room with Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Bianca Guidotti during Miss International in Tokyo, Japan. And they’ve become so close that the former even spent one month of vacation here in Manila last August.
And now, she is rooming with another Filipina once more. This time around, she has been assigned with our Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2015 Parul Shah. And at the rate that I am sizing up both ladies, I feel that they will bond fast. I personally know Shauny to be a sensible and intelligent girl, just like our bet.
The picture above – taken just before removing their makeups – won’t be the first and last for sure. And in the days to come, they will become closer.
Rule the competition, Parul and Shauny! :-D

Here are photos of Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2015 Parul Shah earlier this morning before leaving for NAIA Terminal 2 to catch her 9:35AM flight to Bangkok, Thailand via Philippine Airlines today. She will be arriving in the Land of Smiles around noontime and will be armed with all the preparations to hopefully become the country’s first Filipina winner of Miss Grand International.
From all of us here at normannorman.com, we wish you the best of luck, Parul!
Bring it on, Binibini! :-)
Safe travels, Parul!

Looking every inch the highly-anticipated foreign delegate in the Raymond Saldaña shots in this post, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2015 Parul Shah’s date with destiny is drawing near as her departure schedule for Bangkok, Thailand will indicate. Miss Grand International 2015 awaits her presence and I can confidently say that her preparations are tightly gathered together to show what Miss Philippines is really made of.
Parul promises to do well. And on our part, we can show her united support by continuously voting for Miss Philippines in the Miss Grand International app on iTunes and Google Play Store.
Watch out for our bet’s final look for the competition! :-)
Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2015 Parul Shah
Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2015 (with brand-new sash and all) Parul Shah is super ready for Miss Grand International 2015. In the introduction video below that is already uploaded in the international competition’s website, our bet makes a good impression of herself and her ideals as an individual. She focused on her multi-cultural background and being raised in a different country before finally calling the Philippines her true home.
Parul will be leaving for Bangkok, Thailand in a week’s time to start her quest for pageant glory. In the meantime, please continue supporting her in the Miss Popular Vote by clicking HERE.
