It’s been an honour wearing the Philippine sash to one prestigious beauty pageant in Europe- Miss Summer World. Tomorrow, 19th May is the final night at Kavai Theatre, Albania. The support I have been getting from the Filipino community both from London and at home has been tremendously overwhelming. I have not been able to reply to all of your messages but rest assured I have read all of them especially all the encouragement and positive thoughts, it has really inspired me to do it even better. Maraming Salamat po and this is all for for you mahal kong Pilipinas! 👑♥️🇵🇭 ——————————————————• Photography: @edmondduraku
