  1. In line with this, let’s not forget the other MTI editions that Philippines won:

    Miss Tourism International 1997 (Macau) – Joanne Santos
    Miss Tourism International 1998 (Macau) – Yuni Que
    Miss Tourism International 2001 (Anatolia, Turkey) – Michelle Reyes
    Miss Tourism International 2002 (Black Sea, Ukraine) – Kristine Alzar

    Unofficially, we have 9 crowns for Miss Tourism International.

  2. Some of the most notable crossovers from this pageant (or subsidiaries):

    Nathalie Den Dekker of The Netherlands – Miss International 2013 1st Runner Up
    Half Latina and one Pia’s beties Urvashi Rautela – Miss Universe India 2015
    Monika Radulovic – Miss Universe 2015 Top 5 Finalist
    Julia Horta – Miss Brasil 2019

  3. Stepping stone din ng mga MU hopefuls ang pageant na yan!

    Look at Monica Radulovic and Julia Horta on that picture! Ibang-iba na image nila when they joined MU!

  4. I had just watched Geography Now (YouTube channel) episode on Malaysia. 🙂

    Tan Sri Datu Danny Ooi also put together MTQYI…. Leren…..He changed the brand, Mr. Tinio?

    For the sake of our commentators who might not be aware and therefore dismiss Malaysia in favor of more flashy-exotic ASEAN neighbors, and NOT confining discussion to British colonial rule, orangutans, and the Sabah Claim, Malaysians (largely) reveled the 2018 ending of the decades-long ruling party with the return to power of Mahatir bin Mohammad (in his 90’s!) who recently (last year?) warned Filipinas of the perils of falling into a China debt trap. Also, opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, who was friend to Sen. Benigno Aquino. Jr. (+),… and wife Wan Azizah who came to the country on his behalf to pay respects at the La Salle Greenhills leg of former Pres. Corazon Aquino’s wake…. Anwar, I think, was under detention at the time, though I am unsure if it was Najib Razak, the PM who allegedly struck deals with China., or Mahatir who had him arrested.

    That being said, my blabbermouth will hopefully escape the attention of CCP internet trolls now combing virtual clouds for CCP virus (aka, CoV19) accusations against Pres. Xi Jing Pi. I hope I did not misspell. Otherwise, I’m toast.

    The Camp, if contemplating foreign expansion, can consider Malaysia. Samantha Katie James, Rachel Peters’ good friend at the time of MU 2017, can be their first recruit. Malaysia also has Michelle Yeoh, David Golding, and a top runway-editorial model named Tan Mang Ling.
