These two ladies are the most pressured Asian delegates in Minsk.
While some readers might think that I’m sowing intrigue between the Miss Supranational 2013 entries of the Philippines and Thailand, it doesn’t really come as a surprise that the Asian focus has rested on them in the meantime (inspite of India sending a worthy rep as well).
With the memory of Miss Supranational 2012 (where both countries made it to the Top 5) still fresh in our minds, the question as to who is the better-looking candidate arises. Is it Thanyaporn Srisen who is almost always seen wearing that long black skirt allowing her to move with grace everywhere she goes? Or is it our very own Mutya Datul who strikes with an eternally smiling presence and disarms watchers with her natural glow?
For sure, Mutya is aiming for another Top 5 finish bettering Elaine Kay Moll’s 3rd Runner-Up placement last year, if not the crown itself. And Thanyaporn is dead-set on eclipsing the 1st Runner-Up spot of fellow Thai Nanthawan Wannachutha in Poland.
Take your pick.
Who will outshine who in the end? 😉
Miss Supranational Philippines 2013 Mutya Johanna Datul is like a breath of fresh air everywhere she goes.
Her smile captivates. Her life story fascinates.
It doesn’t take a lot to like Mutya Johanna Datul. And once you are smitten by her innate charm, falling in love with her natural beauty comes instantly.
Our Miss Supranational Philippines 2013 is going back to the basics in preparation for her big pageant moment come September. She admits to being totally unfamiliar with what Miss Supranational is all about, and is taking all the help she can to get into the meat of the relatively new competition. First off, she has started reading about the Central Europe-based organization, as well as trying out her first baby steps in knowing more information regarding the host city – Minsk, Belarus – which will come as a culture shock of sorts to a sweet girl from Isabela.
I’m sure Mutya is bent on proving that she has more than a pretty face to be proud of. Representing the Philippines abroad is the opportunity of a lifetime. And if the foreign delegates and Belarusian organizers will see in her what all of us find special beneath that winsome smile, then we might just end up looking at the very first Filipina to win the crown that has so far eluded an Asian participant. Timing could favor her upcoming stint. With Elaine Kay Moll and Nanthawan Wannachutha (the Thai 1st Runner-Up) making waves in Poland last year, there will be particular interest in our region’s finest.
Let’s show our love and support for Mutya by constantly showering her with words of encouragement via Twitter (@RealMutyaDatul). So that once left to her own defenses out there in Minsk, she will shine through with the brightest aura of a true-blue Miss Philippines. 😀
