Throwback Thursday (10.03.13): The First Win

My Throwback Thursday entry for today features the first Filipina to win the Miss Tourism Queen International crown. It was July 8, 2006 when Justine Gabionza won the title for the Philippines. Unfortunately, that was the only Top 5 placement of the country ever since the pageant debuted in 2004. With the recent successes of Megan Young and Mutya Datul, Filipinos are hopeful for another crown courtesy of Cindy Miranda for the Miss Tourism Queen International 2013 pageant. I have faith with Cindy but I am not raising my hopes really high. The “delicate” relationship of the Philippines and the host country – China – might just come into the equation! I hope I am wrong again! A third beauty pageant crown sounds wonderful. We will see on October 10!
