On February 1, Miss Universe Vietnam 2018 H'Hen Niê arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, where she received a warm welcome from her Filipino pageant coach Anjo Santos and her Pinoy fans.
The 26-year-old model wrote on Instagram, “Mabuhay, Philippines! Here we come. I’m so happy to see my coach again, Anjo Santos. Thank you so much for your warm welcome, Philippines.”
She later tweeted photos of herself enjoying tuyo, sharing “This is 'ca kho,' my hometown food, and also 'tuyo' in the Philippines. My favorite!! I can consume a whole bowl of rice with this fish.”
As of this writing, the purpose and duration of H’hen’s visit haven’t been revealed yet. However, she also flew to Bicol yesterday, according to the Facebook post of Anjo who is based there. There are also photos of her at the 2019 FPPFI (Francis Papua Papica Foundation, Inc.) Youth Congress in Naga City.
According to the FPPFI founder, H'hen was invited to share her inspiring story, as the occasion was "about making a difference here and the world."
It’s most likely that H’hen was at the event when she posted on her IG stories that she loves the Bicolano dish laing.
