The one where I met Miss Australia

Throwback Thursday: With Miss Australia Michelle van Eimeren, who represented her country in the 1994 Miss Universe pageant held in the Philippines. This was a few months after the Miss Universe tilt, as she stayed in the Philippines and starred in a number of Filipino movies. 
My first job was as a staff writer for CHiC, an English-language women’s magazine from what was then one of the biggest Philippine comic book (komiks) and magazine publishers, GASI (Graphic Arts Service, Inc.). Michelle was there for the interview and pictorial for an upcoming cover of the magazine. I will always be grateful to my first editors and bosses Alexander Gatpandan, Espie Gatpandan, and Ray Jimeno, and our publisher Oli Samaniego, for giving me my first break.
