Delegates for the 2009 Miss Earth Pageant should start arriving in Manila late next week and plunge straight into a whirlwind of pre-pageant activities which include a long string of environmental awareness campaigns, promotional appearances for sponsors, preliminary competitions and the annual caravan where the ladies will be divided into 3-4 groups to visit different places around the country to spread the Miss Earth cause while giving the locals an opportunity to share the country’s world-renowned hospitality to each contestant.

Before heading to Boracay Island in mid-November for the finals on November 22, all the contestants will be staying in Manila. While here, the ladies will be billeted at the Official Residence of Miss Earth 2009 – Discovery Suites – located in the bustling Ortigas Business District where the nightlife is just as exciting as its pulsating vibe during the day. They will surely enjoy the spacious units in this suite hotel plus the warm service, up-to-date facilities and proximity to shopping.
I’m definitely excited about the arrival of all official delegates, especially that there are some very strong contenders who have already shown their worth in previous Miss Universe and Miss World editions.
Watch out for more Miss Earth 2009 updates in this blog in the weeks to come!
