I was invited to see the items for auctioned at the Converse headquarters few days before the Miss Universe Grand Coronation Night. It was a fun event as we got to play Miss Universe wearing our crowns and sash. Thank you Voyager, Freenet for my crown. My fellow bloggers love it as well but I don't want to share the crown, lol! I super love it and I intend to keep it. Sorry guys. 😆

Outfit of the day:

with Ruth as Miss Haiti (because she's tall) and me as Miss France
Ruth: kapag nanalo ka, magpa-French-fries ka naman
Me: sure, Haiti tayo
**nabasa ko lang**
This one is my favorite. Indeed, it's more fun in the Philippines.
