Bb. Pilipinas-International 2012 Nicole Schmitz: ready to conquer Japan (Photo credit: Bruce Casanova/OPMB Worldwide)
The decades of staging Miss International in Japan were not the most memorable, save for the years that the Philippines actually won. The pageant itself was either lackluster or tacky at times. But then again, that is the culture of Japan working in all the nooks and crannies of the beauty congress. And when the hosting duties were transferred to mainland China (with Macau taking charge last 2008), the production was not any better. It slowly descended into one of those dime-a-dozen tilts being invented and staged by the Chinese. So when news about the return of the same to Japan were validated, there were shouts of joy and alleluia everywhere in the country. Aside from our candidate not being politicized because of the ongoing tension between the Philippines and China over Scarborough Shoal, Bb. Pilipinas-International 2012 Nicole Schmitz has fond memories of the Land of the Rising Sun and would love to reunite with its language and culture one more time.
What lies ahead of our bet? Bright possibilities, I must say. Aside from Nicole being a near-perfect fit for Miss International, she has this natural spirit of competitiveness that can never go unnoticed. All things being equal, that is.
So come Autumn (around late September-mid October), all eyes will be on Okinawa, Japan for Miss International 2012! 🙂
