When the Group 1 ladies of Miss Earth 2012 were assigned to visit Nayon ng Kabataan – a haven for abused, orphaned, abandoned, neglected and exploited children – for a day of leisure, they could not contain their excitement. They simply wanted to bond with the little ones and show them love and affection even for just a short period of time. And how!
After introductions, ‘getting-to-know-yous’ and some gift-giving, everyone trooped to Mall of Asia where the kids (with their big sisters) were treated to a filling lunch at Taste Asia. Afterwards, they headed to the SM Nido Science Discovery Center where fun learning was definitely had. It was like visiting a game arcade but with educational tools to try instead of mere coin-operated machines.
Of course, the day won’t be complete without endless photo ops, hugs and smiles, both from the candidates and the children who were made to feel wide-eyed special. 🙂
