La Diosa Gabriela Isler en Filipinas!

It has been a long time since a reigning Miss Universe attended the Bb. Pilipinas Pageant. 

I was too young to remember Rina Messinger of Israel crowning Anna Kier as Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 1977… Fast forward to October 1993, Puerto Rico’s Dayanara Torres attended the Press Presentation of the 1994 Bb. Pilipinas Pageant (held earlier as preparations for Miss Universe 1994 commenced) at the former Westin Philippine Plaza and was seen at the annual Charity Day and Parade of Beauties. This was a very memorable event for me…first time to see a reigning Miss Universe visit the country!

Now, it’s Molly’s turn! I am very sure that her stay of several days will give her a lot of beautiful memories…experiencing the warmth and love of the Filipino people would be number one on her list…i’m sure of that!
