Above is Miss Philippines Jehza Huelar wearing a Yong Davalos creation for the promotional shoot of Miss Supranational 2018.
Below (and on the left) is a series of new B/W photos taken by Polish photographer Igor Drozdowski who seems to really love the beauty of our Queen that he made a second round of shoots for her.
Jehza is wearing a Rei Antoni Escario original.
To set everything straight… yes, my 6 luggage were mistakenly left by the airline in London. (I took 3 flights from PH: PH to London, London to Warsaw, Warsaw to Krakow for almost 2 days). What I only got in my hand bag is a sweater, pants, 1 pair of undies, a jacket, my make up kit and all my documents including passport, etc.
BUT NOW ALMOST ALL OF MY LUGGAGE ARE HERE WITH ME (still missing one more). In my first 2 days in Poland, I humbly asked the girls of @misssupranational to lend me some clothes I can wear in our activities. Thankfully, everybody was so helpful I got to borrow clothes from them… mentioning @minhtu_nguyen for lending me her gown during our official sashing ceremony last night. To @andre.sleigh , Dorota, Kate of @misssupranational organizers, big thank you for all your effort in getting my luggage all the way from London…
Nonetheless, I stayed positive and determined amidst difficulty and doubt… I learned that we should not worry much for God will not leave us with an empty hand 💞
@wil_leohn texted me this before I left Philippines… now I’m sharing it to the #SupraNation “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”
James 1:12 NIV
Now that the incident is over and done with, here is a series of black-and-white photos of our Queen as taken by Polish photographer Igor Dro for Miss Supranational 2018:

During the closed door interviews
December 2 is the Day of Denouement for Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2016 Joanna Eden, or the day when she will find out the final phase of her international pageant destiny. The finals will unfold in Krynica-Zdroj, Poland by which time the successor of Stephania Stegman will ve known.
Has our representative done enough to make us all proud? Or has she done just the right amount to capture a placement that will better the Top 20 placements of her two national predecessors? The feedbacks have been mixed if you check out the several online pageant sites. Personally, I can say that she registers so differently in pictures and snap videos that the organizers will definitely have appreciated her a lot more by now. Who knows? My wish for a 2nd Miss Supranational crown for the Philippines might actually come true.
During the closed door interviews, Joanna was very positive. She should be. Our Queen lets out quite an impressive assessment of her communication skills as she can articulate her thoughts very well, especially when in a serious mode of speech.
Let us be positive about Joanna. I know that she wants to really do good in this one. 🙂
