The year’s last international beauty competition will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia come New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2009. Miss Tourism International 2009 is scheduled to attract a good bevy of beauties from around the world as they give toast to the winner while fireworks and merry-making welcome the arrival of the year 2010.
The Philippine bet, Jonavie Quiray, will be leaving for Kuala Lumpur shortly as she joins international beauty delegates who will vie for the said crown. A send-off was hosted at the Banana Leaf Curry House in Podium to formally present the 22-year old lass to the press.
Jonavie, who is a graduating Architecture student of Palawan State University, says that she will describe to her fellow delegates how beautiful the Philippines is, as a major tourist destination in Asia. “I will describe our country positively, despite the recent floodings and typhoon that hit the country and the conflicts that happened in the Southern Region “.
Good luck to Jonavie as she tries to win the Miss Tourism International 2009 Beauty Pageant last won by a Filipina in 2000 when Peachy Manzano brought home the crown.
