Today is Orientation Day (left photo) for the Miss International 2018 Candidates, with the competition advocating to achieve a world where women can live with positivity, inner strength and individuality. The more than 70 candidates have started receiving an assortment of gifts from the various pageant sponsors.
And prior to this assembly, 25 of the ladies were handpicked to join in the special audience with the President of Japan Travel Bureau (JTB)where the Travel To Japan campaign was discussed and promoted. Miss Philippines Ahtisa Manalo was part of the group.
Yesterday, our doll-like bet was also able to meet the reigning Miss International Kevin Lilliana of Indonesia in person. She took the chance to have a photo taken with her at the lobby of Tokyo Dome Hotel – Official Residence of the Candidates.
Tomorrow will be the official start of competition with the Press Conference and Presentation scheduled in the early afternoon. More about Miss International 2018 soon!

No sooner than Bb. Pilipinas International 2016 Kylie Verzosa can get settled in her Tokyo Dome Hotel room with roommate Pattiya Pongthai of Thailand, the activities of Miss International 2016 started one after another.
The first full day had three important agendas on the schedule – the candidates’ orientation, the welcoming ceremony and the reception party that capped off the beehive of events to attend to.
But our bet has prepared well for the nonstop mode. And she is filfilling her sophisticated and elegant turns by wearing the well-executed National Costume by Francis Libiran and slipping in to a fashionable number by Mark Bumgarner for the nighttime gathering with the organizers. And I am certain she mingled like a pro – knowing who to talk to and make pleasantries with. She’s also keeping her fiercest competitions close, like Jessica Duarte of Venezuela. Game plan or not, she knows what she’s doing.
Keep it up, dear Kylie! 🙂
