With husband Ardy Roberto
Bb. Pilipinas Universe 1999 and Miss Universe 1999 1st Runner-Up Miriam Quiambao-Roberto is a fitting subject for this Maundy Throwback Thursday entry because she has already evolved right in front of our eyes from beauty queen to TV host to teleserye performer to film character actress to wife and now, an inspirational speaker along with husband Ardy Roberto who is a bestselling author. The two of them travel to different places around the Philippines and other countries to speak in front of our kababayans about the Word of God while lifting their spirits up while working overseas away from their loved ones.
Watch the testimony of Miriam on 700Club Asia:
Now here is a TV interview of Miriam (and husband Ardy) on GMA-7’s Powerhouse almost three years ago.
Let us look back now at the pageant peaks of Miriam during Bb. Pilipinas 1999 and the Miss Universe edition the same year.
So as a last video, here is the audio interview of Miriam on The Tao of Self-Confidence last year. This one makes her an appropriate source of inspiration in this – the midst of Holy Week.
Happily married couple Miriam Quiambao and Ardy Roberto
After Janina San Miguel, here comes another beauty queen tying the knot and realizing that love is indeed the real thing when you finally decide to commit yourself to that one person you can wake up next to every single morning of your life.
Bb. Pilipinas Universe 1999 and Miss Universe 1999 1st Runner-Up Miriam Quiambao, 38, has taken the plunge with her fiance and will now be henceforth known as Mrs. Ardy Roberto, Jr. The secret ceremony took place at Villa Sommet in Tagaytay yesterday.
Actually, this is already the 2nd for Miriam after a not-so-pleasant first marriage with Italian national Claudio Rondinelli. But never giving up on love, she took the time in searching for the guy who will fit the bill of an ideal husband. Luckily, she found 2nd-timer groom Ardy – a businessman whose first wife passed away last year. They have been engaged since October, 2013.

Congratulations to the newly-weds! May this be the start of something more blissful in the years to come. 🙂
