MANILA, Philippines (PNA) — Bb. Pilipinas Shamcey Supsup, the third runner-up for the 2011 Miss Universe beauty pageant, paid a courtesy call on President Benigno S. Aquino III Sunday evening at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Centennial Terminal 2, just before the Chief Executive embarked on a four-day trip to the United States.
The President and Supsup had a photo opportunity at the Presidential lounge of the NAIA Terminal 2 an hour before the President’s scheduled departure for the U.S.
The beauty queen arrived in Manila at around 6:30 Sunday morning from Los Angeles, California.
Upon arrival, Supsup had a brief press conference at the Terminal 2 VIP lounge where she thanked all her supporters, particularly those who helped her through the social media.
Aside from being the third runner-up during the pageant, Supsup also ranked first among the fans in the vote for the top five candidates and second in the swimsuit and evening gown competitions.
This year’s winner of the Miss Universe beauty pageant is Leila Lopes from Angola, beating 88 other competitors to win the title during the 60th anniversary of the widely popular pageant of world beauties.
Shamcey Supsup is scheduled to join a parade in Makati City Monday where she is expected to visit her high school alma mater, Makati High School. Similar celebrations will also be held in Cainta, Rizal, General Santos City, University of the Philippines-Diliman, and the Araneta Center.
