Kapuso actress Bela Padilla brought honor to the country by bringing home two awards from the 2011 Asian Super Model competition held recently in China.
Bela won the Miss Friendship and Media's Darling awards. These awards may not be among the major awards given but Bela was nonetheless happy because it was the first time a Pinay brought home two awards from the said competition.
The actress told GMA News TV's In the Limelight that she was the shortest among the girls who competed. Some were as tall as 6'5" while she was only 5'6". The director of the show even told her that she may be the fattest among the girls but she has the best personality.
When asked if she now considers joining the major beauty pageants in our country, Bela said she's been eyeing Miss World Philippines but then she still needs much preparation before she finally joins.
Last year, Pinay models joined the Asian Super Model competition. Mariana del Rio won 3rd runner-up while Bianca Paz and Gwen Ruais won the special awards for Ms. Photogenic and Best Runway Walk, respectively.
