MANILA, Philippines — Reigning Mrs. Tourism Ambassador International Myla Villagonzalo-Tsutaichi has returned to Malaysia, where she bagged her title three years ago, not only to relinquish her title to her successor but also to sit as one of the judges for the final competition scheduled on Oct. 16.

But before flying to Kuala Lumpur, the Japan-based beauty queen made a quick trip to Manila first to continue her charity work in Bulacan.


“I started doing charity work at the Bethlehem Orphanage in Bulacan in 2015 with the help of the DSWD (Department of Social Welfare and Development), and also for the grandparents,” Tsutaichi told the Inquirer in an online interview.


“I promised them that before I relinquish my crown, I will return for a charity program through my Kimono Global Friendship Organization (KGFO), also as a form of thanksgiving,” she continued.

She founded the group to promote culture and tradition in Japan, Tsutaichi said. She currently chairs the organization that has been conducting charity programs in different parts of the country, benefitting various sectors in society for several years now.

Tsutaichi was set to turn over her crown in the first quarter of 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic compelled the organizers to cancel the competition’s staging as the world ground to a halt and borders were closed, preventing international travel.

More than three years since its last staging, the Mrs. Tourism Ambassador pageant is finally holding a live competition tonight, where Tsutaichi will join the judging panel.

When asked what qualities she will look for, she told the Inquirer, “you need to have to inspire and empower every mother in the universe to care, uplift, and support to make their dream come true in action, and willing to give their hands to serve.”

In a Facebook post, Tsutaichi said, “to become a beauty queen is not easy as it is. You need to do your best in whatever you do. Being a public figure requires character, as a role model to all.”


She continued: “Winning in a beauty competition was really unexpected and challenging. This was like a dream come true. What a great journey this has been.” EDV
