The Ilocos Region was graced with the presence of the Bb. Pilipinas 2012 winners during a trip sponsored by Philippine Airlines and the provincial governments of Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte. Janine Tugonon (BPU2012), Nicole Schmitz (BPI2012), Katrina Dimaranan (BPT2012), 1st Runner-Up Elaine Kay Moll and 2nd Runner-Up Annalie Forbes were all treated to the warm hospitality of the Ilocanos as they visited the key cities of Vigan and Laoag.
I hope it doesn’t stop here. Since their respective competitions abroad are still several months away, Philippine Airlines should bring them to other local destinations like Cebu, Davao, Bicol and the like as some sort of tourism pitch, as well as getting the ladies closer to their countrymen. Don’t you think so? 🙂
