After all that’s been said and done, after all the hardwork and the hurdle we had to face, here we are announcing that the 65th edition of Miss Universe will be in the Philippines on January 12-30, 2017. I started working on this in February and for five months , I have been quietly putting everyone together on the table to make this dream of Pia and mine come true. Special thanks to my very good friend Kat De Castro for helping me with the government side. (DOT). Huge thank you to Rico and Richelle of LCS (you are my heroes), Gov Chavit Singson, SM Group, Okada, Solar, JPark in Cebu. And of course to the Miss Universe Organization specially to Shawn McLain for trusting me. Go Team Mercator and Aces and Queens 🙂 #mabuhay #philippines #missuniverse
