Inspite of her busy schedule nowadays, I was able to track down Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2018 Eva Psychee Patalinjug who has less than two months to prepare everything before flying to the Golden Land of Myanmar by early October and represent the country in Miss Grand International 2018 which will have its finals happening on October 25.
Here is a personal update she gave on her preparations:
“I’m not putting too much pressure on myself right now as I’m just enjoying everything. I’m going with the flow and preparing all that I have to bring for my pageant. I’m practicing my speech, my Q&A, doing my own make up and hair and of course my pasarela. We had a meeting already about our collaborative vision on my gowns and national costume. And I’ve already sent the sketches to Binibini for Madame Stella’s perusal. I’m very overwhelmed and grateful with all the support I am getting not just from the Philippines but around the world.
I’m very thankful as well that a lot of well-known designers will be helping me throughout my journey and I hope I wear their creations with justice. I will really do my best in order for us to get our first Golden crown. I am doing all that I can. The rest I leave it all up to Him.”

Eva is doing her homework diligently. And I reckon that part of her assignment is to start chatting with her future fellow candidates as well as the pageant owner himself, Nawatt Itsaragrisil. She is fully aware that only her title and that of Karen’s have not yet been matched with a big win internationally. And she wants to be the first Filipina to become Miss Grand International.
PS. I was told that Cebu-based designers Cary Santiago and Phillip Tampus will do Eva’s Competition gown and National Costume, respectively.

Can you still recognize the ladies individually?
