And she’s back in Manila!
After spending the last four days in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to attend a Children’s Charity Benefit Ball of the Vietnamese Government and a few days of touring around the city with her gang (composed of Angelica Alita, Jojo Bragais, Jolo Luarca et al), our Queen promptly returned to training mode.
For now, let us watch this video of Cat where she did a 5-minute pageant makeup challenge for Cosmopolitan Philippines.
While on her current adventure in Vietnam with close friends Jojo Bragais, Angelica Alita, Jolo Luarca, Ardel Presentacion and Patrick Henry Mergano, Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray attended the Charity Benefit for the Children’s Fund of Ho Chi Minh City and the Vietnamese Government. They were joined by Miss Tourism Vietnam International 2016 Emily Hong Nhung who had all these photos taken.
Watch out for the gang’s fun photos and videos in Vietnam!

Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray is uber excited about returning to Thailand for Miss Universe 2018. And how cool is it that her last overseas vacation late last month (sponsored by Air Asia) was in the Land of Smiles where she visited Bangkok and Chiang Mai together with Angelica Alita, Jojo Bragais and Jolo Luarca (who put together the clip).
Cat loves everything about Thailand that when she was there, it showed in the way she embraced the culture and the locals. She made heads turn everywhere and her face has already started to become familiar with a lot of the pageant fans out there.
Watch the one-minute vid now.
This coming May 1, the Coronation Night of Mutya nin Bogñabong (a Barangay in Tabaco City, Albay) will crown the most Queen-worthy among the fifteen lovely contenders.
What three things make this pageant extra special? First, the King of Pageant Heels (and my favorite shoemaker of an anak) Jojo Bragais is the organizer. It is his way of giving back to his hometown on his birthday. Secondly, a surprise guest performer will serenade the ladies, and I was told that it will be ABSCBN artist Xander Ford. And third, two of my dearest lovelies will serve as judges – Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray and Bb. Pilipinas 2016 1st Runner-Up Angelica Alita.
This is going to be an exciting finals!
Don’t miss it if you’re in Albay!
