It’s certainly nice to know that the Top 10 finalists of Miss Czech Republic 2013 are in the Philippines as part of their pre-pageant activities. It’s nothing new to the organization since they have always sent their ladies abroad for out-of-Europe photoshoots and bonding. And the whole partnership helps the Department of Tourism’s “It’s More Fun in the Philippines” campaign by extending its reach to Central Europe as the ladies visit such places as Palawan, Subic and Pampanga to use our pristine beaches and tourist spots as more than backdrops for the competition itself – clearly a win-win situation for both countries.
The ten lovelies are Denisa Grossmannova, Marketa Bfizova, Lucie Kovandova, Monika Leova, Kristyna Schickova, Anna Avakjanova, Alena Presnajderova, Ztuzana Jarackova, Andrea Kolarova and Gabriela Kratochvilova.
Perhaps, it also helped seal the deal that the Philippines is where Czech Republic won its latest international beauty crown via Teresa Fajksova (who will also be one of the judges during the national finals come March) in last year’s Miss Earth.
Let’s hope everything runs smooth during the ladies` stay. We want them to enjoy the vacation-cum-pre-pageant-cum-training camp to the fullest.
So as we all say…Mabuhay! Welcome to the Philippines! 😀
