Angeli Dione Gomez: from Mutya ng Pilipinas to Miss Tourism International
Who would have thought it possible?
The whole country did. Well, most of us actually did.
And Miss Tourism International 2013/2014 Angeli Dione Gomez made sure that she ended 2013 with a big bang of a gift to her countrymen, at the same time ringing in 2014 with our very first international crown for a fresh new period in pageantry. An added icing on the cake is the back-to-back country win in the Kuala Lumpur-based competition.
Mabuhay ka, Kababayang Angeli! 🙂

Miss Tourism International 2013 Angeli Dione Gomez of the Philippines
Up to the fading minutes of 2013, the Philippines does it again!
Angeli Dione Gomez was crowned Miss Tourism International 2013 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – a rare back-to-back win for the Philippines with Rizzini Alexis Gomez being the outgoing titleholder. The reps of Thailand, Australia, Dominican Republic and Malaysia made it to her court. She defeated 59 other contenders for the honor.
And to the Philippines, the undisputed Country of the Year for 2013! 😉

And will the Philippines achieve an exciting back-to-back win in the pageant? 😉
Tickets for the finals are still available. Just check out the details above.
And if you’re based in KL, you might want to spend New Year’s Eve with the ladies, especially Miss Philippines Angeli Dione Gomez. 😉
From your blogger, here’s wishing everyone the happiest Christmas ever!
While the pressure to win the crown and achieve a rare back-to-back for the Philippines in Miss Tourism International is constantly looming her way, Angeli Dione Gomez is still making sure that she enjoys her time with the other ladies in Kuala Lumpur but not to the point of just allowing fate to decide if she will indeed reach her goal (or somewhere near it). She is definitely performing the best way that she can.
Angeli will fight for the Philippines in MTI2013
Our bet needs to do well, in my opinion. Considering that she will already sacrifice spending Christmas with her loved ones back home, there’s no other way to combat homesickness but to focus on the mission at hand. After all, she is doing it for flag and country. And if it’s any consolation, her fellow Cebuana (and reigning titleholder plus surname-sake) Rizzini Alexis Gomez will be around to keep her company, aside from some family members joining her in the Malaysian capital come New Year’s Eve for the finals.
Give it your best shot, Angeli! 🙂
Remember the National Costume made by Cary Santiago, initially worn by Maria Theresa Gorgonio during Bb. Pilipinas 2013 and rumored to be the traditional attire of Ariella Arida during Miss Universe 2013? Well, Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2013 Angeli Dione Gomez finally got to wear the same for Miss Tourism International 2013 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia that started just recently.
Makes sense to me. Both Cary Santiago and Angeli Dione Gomez are from Cebu, so the former wants the best for the Filipina rep in MTI2013.
And with a back-to-back win looming on the horizon for the country in the said competition, everything is being planned to make sure that Angeli Dione Gomez stands out.
Let’s see what good luck the National Costume will bring to our bet. 😉
