Wherever they come from, they all fall under one similarity — being a proud Filipina. This year’s candidates of Miss Universe Philippines proudly shared different existing dialects in the country —and it’s beautiful!
On Tuesday, the pageant’s official Facebook page shared a video where all 52 ladies introduced themselves in their respective hometown’s dialect. From ‘magandang araw sa inyong lahat’ to ‘maayong adlaw sa inyong tanan,’ each candidate has given a chance to speak in their native tongue.
“No matter what language she speaks, every Filipina is phenomenal,” Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) wrote.
