Miss Int’l pays courtesy call on Phl president
Before winning the crown earlier this month, Aquino wished Santiago “good luck” when the president visited Tokyo for the ASEAN Japan Commemorative Summit last December 12.
Santiago arrived at the Palace Music Room with Stella Marquez-Araneta and Cecille Marvilla.
"Congratulations!" President Aquino told her as he shook her hand.
Santiago topped the Miss International beauty pageant last December 17, five days after she met with Aquino during his meeting with the Filipino Community in Tokyo.
She returned to the Philippines last weekend.
