    “I believe that God made man and a woman that will last forever on a sacred matrimony, and they will make a vow in front of the altar,” she said.

    An architecture student, Nicole Dichoso, was crowned winner in the pageant chaired by beauty queen discoverer Renee Salud and Miss International 1979 Melanie Marquez, held in conjunction with the Dinamulag Mango Fiesta of the province.
