“And I'm so proud of you, Mima, kasi nakita ko 'yung battle mo dito sa pageant na 'yan. Lahat kaming nasa likod, we are still cheering you. And malaking karangalan para sa aming dalawa ni Herlene dahil achiever pa rin kami kasi parehas naming winork-out, parehas naming ginusto 'to. So walang kaming any regret kung saan man ma-allign 'yung korona para sa kanya.”
