OPMB Worldwide's first shot (c/o Jory Rivera) of Miss Philippines Ariella Arida in Moscow.
Right now, the coverage team of OPMB Worldwide has already safely landed in Moscow and gearing up to cover all the important remaining events of Miss Universe 2013 up until the finals night on November 9. Expect more fireworks and finger-licking tidbits to come our way.

Oh, and by the way, they already had the chance to spend a bit of time with the beautiful Miss Philippines Ariella Arida who was visibly elated upon seeing them arrive for the pageant. Important family members are also there. According to them, there’s a lot of positivity surrounding our bet although the good vibes cannot be shared just yet so as not to spoil things up. 🙂

Ariella's reaction to the newspaper feature.
Don’t look now, but Miss Philippines Ariella Arida’s photo during the Tony Ward Couture Fashion Show was featured on the news section of The Nation (Abu Dhabi) with a caption that says it all – Universal Beauty.
This should warm the heart of our Miss Universe 2013 representative even more. Inspite of the pageant’s increasing pressure, positive bits of information can really uplift her, as mentioned in this online interview conducted by PEP.ph and Dyan Castillejo.
On top of Ara Arida’s latest photo above (courtesy of OPMB’s Jory Rivera), I am posting her latest vids so you can give constructive comments on how she can improve the way she speaks and her mannerisms in motion.
She reads up this blog among others so it’s better to share thoughts and ideas she can learn from instead of having to go through an assortment of name-calling or bashing (at times with the use of unnecessary rudeness) where the intention of the poster tends to become more attention-craving than putting in a well-meaninged suggestion. It is not wont to my nature to censor replies. But please be a bit more sensitive. Think before you click, especially if your online alter-ego is unabashedly impulsive with words.

The video above was taken roughly a month ago when Sports Show Host Dyan Castillejo interviewed Miss Universe Philippines 2013 Ara Arida. I reckon that this was used for the former’s late Saturday night program ‘Sports Unlimited’ on ABS-CBN.
The one below was taken by reporter Cata Tibayan of GMA News when she chanced upon both Ara and Mutya.
