Putrajaya, Malaysia- Just like the energizer bunny, the Philippines just keeps on going and going and going.
On the last evening of 2013, the Philippines won yet another international beauty pageant, Miss Tourism International held in Malaysia. Miss Philippines Angeli Dione Gomez bested 59 other beauties from around the world to win the title previously held by another Filipina. Miss Gomez joins the list of Filipinas who won major international beauty crowns this year including Miss World, Miss International and Miss Supranational, not to mention the third place finish in this year’s Miss Universe Pageant.
As a result of this latest win, the decision by the Association of Beauty Pageant Franchise Holders (ABPFH) to ban the Philippines from participating in beauty pageants for the next two years has been revised yet again. The ban will now remain in effect for four years. See previous story about the ban as reported in The Adobo Chronicles.
