The parade of international beauties continues here in Cagayan de Oro for the Mister and Miss Pancontinental 2015. Yesterday, the swimwear competition was held at the Apple Tree Resort and Hotel in Opol, Misamis Oriental.
After the event, I got the chance to talk to Miss Australia, Vietnam, Ukraine and the Philippines. So far, they are enjoying their stay in the city and are excited to experience the white water rafting which is one of their activities here. Mister Myanmar also said that he wants to come back here to know more about the place and the culture.
There are interesting facts with the candidates. Miss Australia is actually half Filipino. Her mother is from Butuan City and she is proud of her Filipino roots. She is entertaining the possibility of joining Binibining Pilipinas in the future. And Miss Vietnam is a celebrity in their country. In fact, she has more than one million followers on Twitter.
During lunch time, the candidates had “boodle fight” of Filipino foods. They also enjoyed playing traditional Filipino games such as “luksong tinik.”
The preliminary competition will be held at SM City Cagayan de Oro and the coronation night will be held in Manila.
