“When I was invited to join, my biggest inhibition really was the pageant standards that I do not see myself fit to be casted as an official candidate. The initial lineup of candidates was good… I have lost so much weight in the process as the schedules at work and commitments for the pageant was tight. The entire journey was not easy as I have to fly in and fly out and juggle appointments in Cebu and Manila.”
28-year-old Kevin Ponce Garcia is a native of Cebu City, and wore a barong designed by Cris Cadungog, which was inspired by the beaches of Cebu; his Sinulog-inspired costume on the other hand was designed by Malayka Yamas.
