TANZANIA WIN BEST NATIONAL COSTUME
The Amazing Philippines Theatre was the venue for the Miss Earth 2009 delegates to showcase their cultures in their national costumes. The delegates were escorted by little children from Eton International School—not necessarily “little sisters” this time, as some of the kids were little boys in barong tagalog.

She introduced her number, an ensemble of African flora and fauna elements, by saying that Mother Earth is our one and common mother that needs our care.
Other winners of the night included Guam’s Maria Luisa Santos as Miss Pasigandahan, a title that advocates the rehabilitation of Pasig River, and Puerto Rico’s Dignelis Jimenez as Miss Psalmstre New Placenta.
