1st Runner-up: Cris Doctolero
2nd Runner-up: Angelita Soliven
3rd Runner-up: Alec Alexis Flores

I was able to do a quick interview with the winners and I must say they are more beautiful up-close and just as adept in expressing themselves:  
Kudos to the City of San Fernando LGU and STRAM Inc for a successful event, the winners were beautiful and the entertainment provided by Elmo Magalona, Janella Salvador and Boyband PH kept the crowd going.
The day after the pageant, I was walking on the sands along Poropoint Thunderbird's shores when a couple approached me and excitedly told me " We have a new Miss". I guess that is how they treat their Misses here, as queens. You can definitely tell that these ladies will have the best reign ever and I am already excited for next year hearing them sharing about their wonderful year as queens of the City of San Fernando.

Special thanks to Airwind Bautista of ATIN for making this coverage possible.
