“Safely arrived in Puerto Rico! I’m very happy I got here a day early and no flight delays, so travel time was just about 30 hours compared to last time’s 40!” she said via her Instagram page yesterday, March 13. “Let’s do this! Laban Bisaya, Laban Pilipinas (Fight on, Bisaya. Fight on, Philippines).”

The Miss World pageant was initially scheduled in December last year but was postponed after 17 individuals involved in the beauty pageant reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 before the finals night.

Perez left the Philippines last Friday, March 11, with hopes of taking home the second Miss World crown for the country, following Miss World 2013 Megan Young. JB
