After placing in the Top 8 of Bb. Pilipinas 2016, Angel was immediately immersed in the world of national beauty pageant winners. She may not have a title to her name yet, but the duties and responsibilities of being 1st Runner-Up always beckons to stay in Manila more than her beloved hometown of Puerto Galera in Oriental Mindoro.
She definitely misses her family. She is particularly close to her brothers who look up to her as a role model and a loving sister rolled into one. She misses the beaches of Galera and her favorite spot near the waves and splashing water (see photo grid above). She misses the townfolks she usually bonds with. And she definitely misses the normalcy of life she used to enjoy pre-BBP days.
But Angel is serious with her placement in the pageant. And being the sweet and obedient lady that she is, there is no reason to miss the important BPCI and sponsor-related appearances here. She may not clock in 100% all the time, but her commitment to the organization is firm.
She is grateful for having close “big sisters” in Maxine Medina, Kylie Verzosa, Jennifer Hammond, Nicole Cordoves and Jehza Huelar (see photo below).

Yes, Angel misses Puerto Galera. But she will do everything that it takes not to miss the important activities as Bb. Pilipinas 2016 1st Runner-Up. 🙂
