Justine Mae “Jaya” San Jose, Mutya ng Pilipinas by Onecho Gabinete
is “Good luck” in Bahasa Malaysia. And that is what we are wishing Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2016 Justine Mae “Jaya” San Jose as she competes in the finals of the last beauty pageant for this year – Miss Tourism International 2016/17 – which will wrap up with the crowning of a new winner on New Year’s Eve (or just shortly before the clock strikes 2017 tonight
) inside Marriott Putrajaya in Malaysia.
Jaya is in high spirits, especially after being informed by the organizers that she is always being noticed – along with the delegates of Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand – as the most active in social media. And this helps a lot not only in determining the Most Popular Special Award recipient, but also in measuring the power of reach that a potential winner can use if and when she becomes crowned as the next.

Jaya is especially motivated at the moment because her loved ones are already in Kuala Lumpur to support her bid. Add to that the fact Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International 2015 Leren Mae Bautista is also a special guest during the coronation. She will give it her all, trust me.
Once more, semoga berjaya, Jaya! 😀

In just a few days from now, we shall know if Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2016 Justine Mae San Jose is fated to achieve a new level of achievement in pageantry with the finals of Miss Tourism International 2016/17 scheduled on December 31 at the Marriott Putrajaya.
So far, Jaya has made dents in the competition. She has been named Miss Gintell Wellness (left photo), a major sponsor award in the competition, aside from registering well in the eyes of fellow delegates and organizers. Will she be able to translate these strides into something significant come finals night?
We’ll see. Here are the credits for the studio shots in this feature:

The 12 ladies above are my current favorites for Miss Tourism International 2016/17
The Official Candidates during the Press Presentation
There are sixty (60) Official Candidates vying for Miss Tourism International 2016/17 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at the moment. And one of them will take the crown on New Year’s Eve at Marriott Putrajaya where the finals is traditionally held almost every year.
In this year’s roster, I have made a selection of current favorites for the win. While it is still too early to pick a solid front-runner in the pack, I am giving twelve (12) ladies a good headstart. Hopefully, they can sustain the momentum until the coronation night.
My favored dozen as of this date are:
11) Costa Rica
Now watch a video of the Miss Tourism International 2014/15 where the Philippines’ Glennifer Perido placed 2nd Runner-Up and was given the special title of Miss Tourism Metropolitan International (a precursor of the similarly-named competition held in Cambodia more than a month ago).

Jaya with the other candidates
Now that the 2016 Pageant Year is nearing its end, there is still one international beauty contest to blog about – the traditional New Year’s Eve-crowning Miss Tourism International which has returned to its home at Marriott Putrajaya for this edition.
Mutya ng Pilipinas 2016 Justine Mae “Jaya” San Jose is in the middle of all pre-pageant activities as she attempts to make one last hurrah for the country and hopefully end the year with a sweet bang.
This charming Doha-raised but Laguna-educated lass knows what is expected of her, as is mandated in all Filipina Beauty Queens and that is to bring the sunniest version of herself to the pageant and give the needed thrust for Tourism – the main objective of it all.
Do watch a video of the ladies during their Press Presentation now.

Watch out for more Jaya San Jose and Miss Tourism International 2016 updates in the days to come!
Jaya with Miss Indonesia
During yesterday’s Press Presentation of Miss Tourism International 2016/17 at the Marriott Putrajaya in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Mutya ng Pilipinas 2016 Justine Mae San Jose looked radiant in her Leo Almodal gown with accessories by Christopher E Munar and styled by Patrick Henry.
Jaya was easily one of the most looked-upon candidate aside from the fact that she is wearing the Philippine sash. She knows how to work her charm with people and establishes a pleasant impression right away.
But since this is just the beginning of her mission, Jaya still needs to maintain a solid public presentation all the time, aside from showing the organizers that she is a definite contender for the title.
More updates on Miss Tourism International soon!

Miss Tourism International has already established itself as the last international beauty pageant to be held every year, with the annual finals always happening during New Year’s Eve. And for 2016, Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International Justine Mae “Jaya” San Jose is the Filipina who will travel to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to represent the Philippines in the 2016/17 edition.
This beautiful lady from Pila, Laguna – whom we recently saw as one of the PBA Muses for Rain-or-Shine Elasto-Painters – is more than ready to give her best for the country. She wants nothing more than to add another crowning achievement to the long list of Filipinas who have helped make the country a true pageant powerhouse around the world.
And Jaya will get all the support that she needs – from the Mutya ng Pilipinas organizers to her family to the big group of fans and supporters who have pledged to back her up all the way.
