I am not a morning person, so getting up at 4:30 AM is a huge effort to me.
We left Pasig at 6 AM with enought time to buy Jollibee corned beef which we ate in the car. Yum!! I did not want to starve during the three-hour show.
We arrived at MOA Arena at 7 AM and met Rizel of M.A.C who gave us the VIP tickets. Wow! I did not expect our seats to be this good! This seat is worth Php 50,000.
I was at the same row as designer Michael Cinco, who did Pia Wurzbach’s blue ball gown
He is practically a legend! I learned about him from the new Netflix docu, To Be a Miss, which shows how a pageant-obsessed country produces beauty queens.
Mr. Sousa was super nice and accommodating to picture takers. There is no truth to the rumor that he walked out when Miss Venezuela was eliminated…
In front of Michael Cinco was Pia Wurtzbach’s boyfriend, the child-like, Marlon Stockinger
Behind us was President Duterte’s Chief Legal Counsel, Atty. Salvador Panelo.
Right in front of me was gazillionaire Lucio Tan, who left before the show ended.
Now you see him,
Now you don’t.
And all around us were just tons of gays and AFAMS from all over the world. Fun!!
