The Miss Universe 2016 Kick Off Event with Pia Wurtzbach


I once told myself that I don't need to hold a title under my name to make a difference and influence others. It happened. In my own little ways, I found joy when people tell me that I was able to help them or inspire them. But when you have a title under your name (say, a Miss Universe title) you have a louder voice to get your messages reach the bigger audience. 

We witnessed the kick off event of the Miss Universe 2016 in Conrad Manila last December 10, 2016 as reigning Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach welcomes 11 candidates from different countries.

I have been asked a couple of times why I didn't join a beauty pageant. Ask me in person the next time we would see each other I would tell you. 

Miss Australia, Indonesia, China, Korea, Japan, New Zealand, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar and USA flew in to the Philippines and was joined by our very own, Miss Philippines Maxine Medina. 

90 beautiful ladies from all over the world would tour the Philippines for a series of activities and the Miss Universe Coronation Night will be held in SM MOA Arena on January 30, 2017 to be shown live via ETC.  The pageant will be hosted by Steve Harvey and Ashley Graham. 


Thinking of watching the Miss Universe Pageant?
Here are the Miss Universe Ticket Prices:

General Admission cost around $160 (approximately Php 8,000), 
VIP tickets costs more or less $1,000 (almost Php 50,000). 
Prices for the upper and lower box tickets are yet to be announced.
