Road to Miss Universe 2011:
Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2011 Shamcey Supsup was treated to a stellar sendoff by family and close friends as she prepares to join the Miss Universe 2011 beauty pageant in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
Among those who attended Shamcey’s “despedida” were past winners Venus Raj and Bianca Manalo, as well as Shamcey’s mother and close friends.
Shamcey said she is looking forward to the adventures that await her. She said she is confident she will successfully reintroduce Filipina beauty and charm on the world stage.
Manalo, who is now the co-host of a noontime show, advised Shamcey to “become friends with the strong players in the competition to further get into the groove of winning.”
She admitted that while she wished for better results during her competition, she looks back with no regrets especially since the pageant opened new opportunities to her.
Shamcey is set to leave for Sao Paolo on Wednesday, August 10. The coronation night for the Miss Universe pageant will take place on September 12 and will be shown exclusively on ABS-CBN.
