Winners of the recently concluded Mutya ng Pilipinas 2013 pageant started their tour of duty in promoting their “Beauty Tourism” campaign by exploring one of the most beautiful tourist spots of the country, the Queen City of the South, Cebu City, as well as other interesting hideaways around the province.
“As one of the newly-crowned Mutya ng Pilipinas queens, my main advocacy is to promote anything that is beautiful in the Philippines, from nature’s bounty to friendly and hospitable people unto superb native cuisines and I guess I have to start right within my own native place, which is Cebu,“ said Mutya ng Piilipinas – Tourism International and proud Cebuana, Angeli Dione Gomez, during a recent visit to the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Lahug district.
The 20-year-old lass from the Queen City of the South also won the same title won by another Cebuana last year, Rizzini Alexis Gomez, who ultimately won the Miss Tourism International in December 2012. Dione is optimistic she can duplicate Rizzini’s victory, being a Gomez herself! She’ll fly to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia towards the end of the year to compete in the said pageant.
Angeli, together with pageant winners Mutya ng Pilipinas 2013-Overseas Communities Asdis Liza Karlsdottir of Iceland and 1st Runner-up Maureen Ann Montagne of Arizona ((USA) together with Ms. Jacqueline Tan, Mutya ng Pilipinas president, were warmly welcomed personally by the hotel’s resident manager, Mr. Carlo Marcelo Sainz, the girls' host during their stay in Cebu City.
The 2013 Mutya winners will soon be embarking on a nationwide tour of key cities around the country to promote its advocacy of “Beauty Tourism” and participate in various festivals and charity events in and around the archipelago.
The Mutya ng Pilipinas organization promotes ‘beauty tourism’ within the greater Asia Pacific with the direct participation of the overseas Filipino communities; this being a distinct component of the national pageant for years now. The organization is motivated and inspired by its guiding thrust to assist in promoting tourism, social responsibility, fashion, and beauty pageantry.
