In just barely three weeks from now, Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti will get her formal send-off. And anent to my original post about her being the first Binibini to compete abroad, it looks to be happening with the postponement of Miss Intercontinental 2014 to a tentatively-set December 6 sked.
Our Queen will need to be in Tokyo, Japan by October 25 for a fate-deciding eighteen (18) day stay that will answer the question if she can achieve a rare back-to-back win in Miss International.
But for now, our Bianca still needs to go broke with all her gym trainings and Nihongo lessons to wrap up the finishing touches of her preparations for the competition. In the recent People Asia Women of Style & Substance Awards, she was interviewed on the subject matter of the awarding rites, plus the journey ahead to the Mikimoto crown. Watch the video below.

Knowing Marianne personally, I know that she is fully immersed into the mission she will be heading to. Everytime we get to chat, her replies may be stated in half-jest. But the seriousness and sincerity are definitely intact.
Trite as it may sound, she will be in it to win it.
Mikimoto or bust. 😀
