Last night, the uber gorgeous Cynthia Magpatoc Thomalla – representing Sinulog Festival of Cebu – was crowned Reyna ng Aliwan 2016 as expected by practically everyone. On the road to the win, she also grabbed a good number of the special awards like Miss Photogenic, Best in Swimsuit and Best in Long Gown.
It was practically like a landslide victory for Cynthia who is probably using this competition for bigger things next year. Bb. Pilipinas 2017, perhaps? You see, a lot of people (including your blogger) was expecting her to screen for and qualify as Bb. Pilipinas 2016 Official Candidate. But with this achievement, it gives her the added confidence to prepare herself for the nationals a year from now.
