Miss Philippines Parul Shah in her National Costume
Today is an important day for Miss Philippines Parul Shah. The Preliminaries of Miss Grand International 2015 will take place at Indoor Stadium Huamark in Bangkok tonight. And this is crucial because the semifinalists will be selected during their two major turns onstage – evening gown and swimsuits.
I have full trust in Parul’s skills and instincts to do well in the proceedings. She is a trained fighter who can dodge the toughest bullets from her opponents and still effortlessly shine.
All things being equal, I can see our bet beaming at her brightest. And for as long as the competition is scored according to true pageant standards, then there is simply no way that Parul will let this slip away.
Give it your best, girl!🙂

There is something to be significantly said about the Miss Grand International 2015 experience of Miss Philippines Parul Shah. Every single day, she continues to learn about the Thai culture as compared to what she might have gone through in the past during ordinary shopping trips to Bangkok that lasted for just a few days or so.
What’s more, Parul gets to undergo everything while being given the royal treatment by the hosts. In all the provinces they visit, there are always new things to encounter for the first time.
After this weekend, the delegates will be returning to the bustling Thai capital to go into fierce competition mode as the finals night on October 25 approaches. And our bet, having gotten a good feel of the culture and attitude of the locals, can now adjust her presentation to what the Thais may be looking for in the next Miss Grand International winner.🙂

In this post, you will see the Official Portraits of Miss Philippines Parul Shah in the ongoing Miss Grand International 2015 in Thailand. Taken in the sandy beaches of Koh Chang Island, she is an alluring temptress in all essence. She did away with the sugary sweet smile and went mysterious in aura. Are you liking both images (above and below)?
Meanwhile, the candidates are now in Samut Songkhram Province for the continuation of their tour around Thailand. They arrived in large tuktuks or trams where Parul was shot in all her graceful beauty (left photo).
The competition is heating up nicely. And barring any surprises, our bet should be able to do well in all the remaining segments of the Pre-Pageant activities.🙂

I can now say with a good degree of confidence that it is not easy competing in an international beauty pageant with our Parul Shah. The lady knows how to fire up the official proceedings with her always-shining presence and queenly styling. Even in the simplest of candid shots, you will never catch her off-guard. Her face projects an endearing quality that weaker-willed and/or insecure delegates will find it either tough or tougher to keep up with her.
But I’m not shouting chants of hallelujah to our representative so she will keep it easy-going in the coming days ahead. In fact, she needs to amplify her gameplan even more because the other ladies may have already sized her up and getting ready to meet her challenge head-on.
So be ready to see a fiercer Parul Shah. She is ready, able and willing. All for the Philippines! 😀
You can’t help but heap praises for our Miss Grand International 2015 bet

Yesterday, the swimsuit competition of Miss Grand International 2015 took place at the Kacha Resort and Spa Koh Chang in Koh Chang Island, Trat Province of Thailand. And while Miss Philippines Parul Shah wasn’t one of the tallest, she stood ten feet tall during her spotlight presentation that she firmly held her own side by side the other candidates with her smooth glide and well-trained stance.
The event, already considered the first round of official preliminaries for Miss Grand International 2015, serves as a good preview of all the delegates in contention. One of them will be named Best in Swimsuit during the finals.

Today, the Official Welcome and Press Conference of Miss Grand International 2015 was held inside Central World in the heart of Bangkok’s shopping district. The more than sixty (60) candidates were all present to be introduced to the invited members of the media, including our Miss Philippines Parul Shah who even had an online makeup tutorial with KF’s Giovanni Lazaro Flores before joining the other ladies for today’s event. Talk about adjusting the look depending on the nature of the day’s activity, our bet is always prepared.🙂

While the finals of Miss Grand International 2015 won’t be until October 25, the judgment night of Miss Globe 2015 will already take place at the Rose Theater this coming Thursday, October 8 (Friday early morning in Manila).
And some sources are saying that Miss Philippines Ann Colis is now the girl to beat, unless she gets upended by someone else. But all things being fair and equal, we might just get our first Miss Globe crown soon. Things are simply going her way, inspite of the small intrigues and rumors along the way.
As for Parul in Bangkok, she is just starting her trek. With Miss India Vartika Singh, she is already expected to closely bond with (photo below) just like with roomie Shauny Bult of Netherlands. The upcoming days will see them enjoying the sights of the Land of Smiles and neighboring provinces. I’d like to see how she will present herself on a daily basis.
Good luck to you, Ann and Parul!😉
