Earlier in the afternoon at the Activity Center of Gateway Mall, Bb. Pilipinas International 2015 Janicel Lubina was given her send-off to Miss International 2015. The choice of the venue was an interesting one, as compared to the usual Gloriamaris or Balay. In fact, this activity had the look and feel of a public event to herald the upcoming departure of our Queen for the Land of the Rising Sun on Saturday, October 17. And the openness of the area actually allowed more people to witness the whole thing.
Janicel was at her most radiant when she finally stepped out to take her spot onstage. Motivated by the recent win of Ann Colis as Miss Globe 2015 and the ongoing fight of Parul Shah for Miss Grand International 2015 in Thailand, she is all pumped up and ready to face her opponents for the Mikimoto crown. And by all counts, she is dead set on claiming our 6th.
While our Queen knows that she has been hyped by the Japanese Press several months back, Janicel knows that she can never rely on old publicity. Instead, she wants to show them her fully-transformed self and face up to the challenge with her beautiful game face on.
From all of us here at normannorman.com, we wish you safe travels, Janicel! Give it your best and bring on your A-game every single day of the pageant duration. 😀
