How time flies fleetingly, indeed.

The international pageants are taking their place and such excite the pageant aficionados. The very first Bb Pilipinas Gold queen shall take her her turn in the international pageant limelight very soon.

Tomorrow our bet to the 2013 Miss Supranational Mutya Johanna Datul will have her official BPCI send off to the international pageant.

Prior to Bb Pilipinas Gold, Mutya Datul has participated in several pageants such as the 2011 Miss Isabela Tourism where she won and 2012 Mutya ng Pilipinas where she ended as a semifinalist.

Mutya has just earned the right to compete in Miss Supranational pageant now on its fifth edition. The international pageant will be hosted by the Eastern European country of Belarus scheduled on September 6, 2013.

Just last year, the Philippines placed third runner up by the success of Elaine Kay Moll, 2012 Bb Pilipinas First runner who was handpicked by BPCI to represent the country in the 2012 Miss Supranational quest.

With that said, good luck to you Mutya! Clinch that title! We will pray for you!
