Sun.Star Pampanga - - SHOW! -

THE first batch of Miss Uni­verse can­di­dates kicked-off their pro­vin­cial tour in the is­land of Siar­gao.

Twelve beau­ties made the most of the pearly white beaches of the province as they were wel­comed by the lo­cals in the "Surf­ing Cap­i­tal of the Philip­pines."

Among those who trav­eled this week for the pro­mo­tional tour were Miss USA De­shauna Bar­ber, Miss Korea Jenny Kim, Miss New Zealand Ta­nia Pauline Daw­son, Miss Aus­tralia Caris Ti­ivel, Miss Thailand Chalita Suansane and Miss Ja­pan Sari Nakazawa.

Miss Viet­nam Dang Thi Le Hang, Miss In­done­sia Kezia Warouw, Miss Myn­mar Htet Htet Htun, Miss Malaysia Ki­ran Jas­sal, Miss China Li Zheny­ing, and our very own Max­ine Me­d­ina were also part of the group.

Their visit to the province came after Miss Uni­verse of­fi­cially launched the 65th edi­tion of the com­pe­ti­tion Satur­day evening at the S Mai­son Mall at the Mall of Asia com­plex in Pasay City.

Reign­ing Miss Uni­verse Pia Wurtzbach per­son­ally wel­comed this year's en­trants and said it's a dream come true to hold the pageant in the Philip­pines.

"Thank you so much for mak­ing this hap­pen. It's not just a dream of the Miss Uni­verse Or­ga­ni­za­tion but it's also a dream of mine to bring back the com­pe­ti­tion here and to show the world how beau­ti­ful the Philip­pines is."

Aside from Siar­gao, the Miss Uni­verse can­di­dates are ex­pected to visit the prov­inces of Ilo­cos, Davao, Cebu and Baguio.

The pageant will be held on Jan­uary 30 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
