Ganbatte is the Japanese term for Good Luck/Keep your chin up/Do your best. And that is exactly what I’m wishing for our representative to Miss International 2012 in Okinawa, Japan. Nicole Schmitz was earlier feted by BPCI to a formal send-off which was made more special by the presence of fellow Binibining Pilipinas beauty queens. Come Monday morning, she will be boarding her flight to the Land of the Rising Sun and start a journey that should hopefully see a 5th Miss International win for the Philippines by October 21.
Suiri no tame ni, Nicole! (For the win, Nicole!) 😀
