More than eleven (11) years ago today, Miss Asia Pacific International had its last finals. Since then, the organization – which has a network of 87 countries all over the world – has vanished into thin air. There were talks of resurrecting the pageant a few years back, but everytime people got excited about the return, nothing really materialized.
This 2016, the lid is finally off. Miss Asia Pacific International 2016 is a go and the country will host the 37th this coming October. Sheridan Resort in Palawan will be the out-of-town venue for all pre-pageant activities, but the finals will definitely take place in Manila in a still unannounced events place.
The Comeback Pageant of the decade, Miss Asia Pacific International promises to be bigger, better and more exciting. Mutya ng Pilipinas 2016 Ganiel Krishnan will be the Philippine bet. More details will follow soon.
In the meantime, here are photos and a video from the last edition of Miss Asia Pacific International held in Guangzhou, China last April, 2005 where Leonora Monge of Costa Rica initially won but replaced by 1st Runner-Up Eugeniya Lagova of Russia. Miss Philippines Jedah Hernandez placed 4th Runner-Up but is technically 3rd Runner-Up after the movement.
