I never thought that Philippines is the only Asian country with Miss International winners. These are Gemma Cruz (1984), Aurora Pijuan (1970), Melanie Marquez (1979), and Precious Lara Quigaman (2005).
This year, Krista Arietta Kleiner will represent Philippines in 2010 Miss International pageant. I hope she will win either special awards or runner-up, better if the title itself. Good luck, Krista!!!
