Miss International calls on Aquino

-A A +A

Monday, December 23, 2013

PRESIDENT Benigno Aquino III on Monday personally congratulated newly crowned Miss International Bea Rose Santiago when she paid a courtesy call at Malacanang.

Santiago arrived at the Palace Music Room with Stella Marquez-Araneta and Cecille Marvilla.

"Congratulations!" President Aquino told her as he shook her hand.

Last December 12, the President had wished her good luck in the pageant when he visited Tokyo for the Asean Japan Commemorative Summit.

The President at that time met with the Filipino community in Japan.

Santiago topped the contest last December 17, five days after she met with the Aquino during his meeting with the Filipino Community in Tokyo.

She returned to the Philippines last weekend.

Before meeting with the President at the Palace, Santiago gamely accommodated requests by employees to have her photo taken with them. (SDR/Sunnex)
