A Filipina beauty queen brings home another crown! The Philippines' representative to the Miss Tourism International 2019 pageant, Cyrille Payumo, successfully won the title, beating 38 other contestants. The event was held in Malaysia on the night of November 8.
Cyrille also won the Best in National Costume award with a gown designed by Rich Sabinian.
Two weeks ago, Cyrille expressed her excitement to "raise our flag" on the way to Kuala Lumpur. She captioned her Instagram post: "I'm so excited to see & experience the beauty of Malaysia and to meet all my fellow lovely candidates!"
Her success marks the country's fifth Miss Tourism International title, following our most recent win in 2017, a back-to-back win in 2013 and 2012, and the first one in 2000.
