Above is the photo of Bb. Pilipinas International 2018 Ma Ahtisa Manalo inside the VIP Lounge of NAIA Terminal 2 before boarding for her Philippine Airlines flight bound for Tokyo, Japan.
And below is Miss Philippines Ma Ahtisa Manalo surrounded by her almost 100 kilos of luggage upon arrival at Narita Airport Terminal 2 before checking in for Miss International 2018.
Ahtisa is ready to fight, fight, fight!
Earlier at the Monet Ballroom of Novotel Manila Araneta Center, Bb. Pilipinas International 2018 Ma. Ahtisa Manalo was given her Official Send-Off to Miss International 2018 in Tokyo, Japan.
With both Eva Patalinjug and Michele Gumabao in competition abroad (and Karen Gallman with a prior engagement), Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray and Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2018 Jehza Huelar gave words of encouragement to their youngest sister.
Ahtisa will be leaving for the Land of the Rising Sun soon!
Below are more photos from the said event.
Since Indonesian makeup master Albert Kurniawan (left photo) is personally doing the imaging of Bb. Pilipinas International 2018 Ma. Ahtisa Manalo for her upcoming pageant mission in Tokyo, I thought it best to share with you the video of the session he vlogged with one of our Queens.
Soft glamour make-up is the focus on Ahtisa’s beautiful doll-like face.
Watch the video now.

What’s your vibe about Ahtisa, dear readers?
Ahtisa by Red Keeler
In continuation of our blog entries about the confirmed dates of mission for our Bb. Pilipinas 2018 Queens, we have Ma. Ahtisa Manalo next who is scheduled to leave for Tokyo, Japan second half of October to join the other candidates who will compete for the Miss International Beauty Pageant 2018 crown on November 9 at the Tokyo Dome City Hall.
I spent last weekend with this doll-like beauty from Candelaria and she has really blossomed from the time she clinched the national crown. Her head-turning face has become more captivating, the same way that her communication skills have leveled up quite nicely.
The pressure to win our seventh (7th) Miss International crown looms in the horizon, maybe not as much as Mariel de Leon last year who had to go for a back-to-back. Sandwich wins have happened in Japan before so there is no impossibility in what Ahtisa wants to achieve.
Mister Global Philippines 2018 Kristian Sarmiento
It was the biggest night ever for the Province of Quezon, pageant-wise. In two separate national finals, Ma Ahtisa Manalo was crowned Bb. Pilipinas International 2018 at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City. Meanwhile, Kristian Nanadiego Sarmiento went home bemedalled as Mister Global Philippines 2018 of Global Bachelor Philippines at the Don Leopoldo Sison Convention Center in Alaminos, Pangasinan.
They will now be prepared to represent the country in Miss International 2018 (Japan) in the 3rd quarter and Mister Global 2018 (Thailand) this coming July.
Congratulations to the two successful Quezonians!
