Today, October 29, a new Miss Intercontinental will be crowned in Sharm El Shiekh, Egypt. Do watch the Live Streaming (at around 3am of Saturday, October 30) on the YouTube channel of the pageant and cheer our Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental Cindy Obeñita who is all geared up to vie for – and hopefully capture- our country’s 2nd big victory in the pageant.
You may lose sleep over watching it live, but it will be all worth the #puyat!
Behold the National Costume of Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental 2021 Cindy Obeñita for Miss Intercontinental 2021:
“Filipinos have long been in love with the enchantments of a #DIWATA, a mythical goddess whose omnipotence can be likened to Egyptian deities.
Across regional literatures in the Philippines, the character of a Diwata is almost always a mainstay narrative deep-rooted in the culture and daily life of the Filipino.
In this national costume, Cinderella also glides with Cariñosa movements, a Philippine folk dance in the Maria Clara suite.
Prominent in this ensemble is the prestigious color gold, which is a nod to the ancient history of the Philippines and its gold-producing culture, particularly in Mindanao where Cindy proudly comes from. For these gold neck pieces, we collaborated with Mindanao’s crownmaker Tres Cartera and Ben Torres Metalcraft for the beaten brass component of this masterpiece and ALjethro Amorin Sebastian for the leaves fabric manipulation.”

Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental 2021 Cinderella Faye Obeñita
Tomorrow, October 13, Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental 2021 Cinderella Faye “Cindy” Obeñita will be departing for Egypt to join the other candidates of Miss Intercontinental 2021 in Sharm El Sheikh. It would be an understatement to say that she is aiming to become our second Filipina winner of the competition because she is going there armed with all the support of her beloved CDO and Misamis Oriental.
In the meantime, check out her interview with Nicole Cordoves in the video below.
This is most definitely one of the best country introduction videos I have watched. This lady makes me so proud!
Check out Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental 2021 Cindy Obeñita as she gives us a tour of several continents using the natural wonders of the Philippines. Such a clever approach, with seamless editing and great underwater shots. This is more than just tourism at its finest. She is out to win our second Miss Intercontinental crown in Egypt next month.
Here are photos from the courtesy call made by Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental 2021 Cindy Obeñita and #TeamPhilippines for Miss Intercontinental with His Excellency Ambassador Ahmed Shehabeldin of the Embassy of the Arab Republic of Egypt in the Philippines.
What made the visit more special is that the Philippines and Egypt celebrate 75 years of bilateral relations.
The entire group was also endorsed to the incoming Ambassador of the Philippines to Cairo, HE Ezzedin Hamdi Tago – who is interestingly, half-Filipino, half-Egyptian – to facilitate their visas going to Sharm El Sheikh next month.
Below are the other team members who are included in the party but not in the photos:
Atty. Jeffrey Caudor Saclot | Legal Counsel
Jim Ryan Ros | head of hair and makeup
Odelon Simpao | stylist

A Modern Cinderella:
Last night’s Grand Coronation of Binibining Pilipinas 2021 was made more exciting by the victory of Cinderella Faye “Cindy” Obeñita who was crowned Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental 2021 – she who crossed the fine line between coming from behind (as the winner of the People’s Choice and becoming the 13th Finalist) and slaying the Q&A big-time – a feat that convinced the judges of her crown-worthiness.
Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental, #rejoice!
You have a new Queen – a lady who perfectly exemplifies the #NewBeautiful and the #NewBinibini.
