http://www.missworld.com Arriving in the Philippines at the weekend, Miss World Chairman Julia Morley & Miss World Yu Wenxia received rapturous greetings across the nation. Meeting them at the airport, Philippines National License Holder Cory Quirino and Philippines 2012 Queeneerich Rehman escorted the arrivals to a packed out press conference at the Manila Hotel.
The Press conference saw Miss World, Queeneerich Rehman, and Gwendoline Ruais, 2011 Miss World 1st runner-up, fielding questions from local and international press across a whole range of topics. Wenxia also showcased her highly sought after singing talent at the behest of an audience member.
After a lively press conference, all attention was turned to the forthcoming Chinese New Year, with a whole host of evening events planned for Miss World. The Chinese New Year is the most important celebrations in the Chinese Calander and this year is even more special than others for Wenxia, as it is the beginning of the Year of the Snake, the same year that she was born in.
Joining Ambassador Ma Keqing, the Chinese Ambassador in the Philippines, and Philippines Vice President Jejomar Binay, Miss World enjoyed a traditional Chinese New Year Meal at the Mandarin Hotel before several parties and a big firework display to welcome in the New Lunar Year. Mr World 1st Runner-up Andrew Wolff also had a chance to catch up with Julia Morley for the 1st since the Mr World Competition, attending the party with Miss Rehman and Licence holder Cory Quirino.
Food, Dragons, Music and Fireworks combining to make a spectacular evening for the guests, Saturday night was the perfect way to welcome the new year in.
