Miss World 2010: Miss Philippines & Miss Hong Kong pictured together

As if nothing happened between their respective country (remember the hostage crisis?), Miss World 2010 contestants Sau Man "Sammi" Cheung from Hong Kong China and Czarina Gatbonton from the Philippines gamely posed together for a picture during their tour in Beijing.

Miss Philippines and Miss Hong Kong are showing to the world that they're fine with each other and definitely aren't gonna be affected by any issue caused by the hostage drama. That's good actually!


The Philippine delegation has actually lots of pictures with some other candidates and even with the reigning Miss World during their stay in Beijing.

Today, September 6, the candidates have already arrived in Ordos, Inner Mongolia after being welcomed in Beijing. They will stay there for three days before they move to Shanghai on the 9th.

Miss India Manasvi Mamgai, who was among the top pre-pageant favorites and is well-prepared, doesn't look her best in some pictures. She also appears short when lined up with other candidates. Maybe her experience in modeling and as Miss Tourism International 2008 could give her the edge over other candidates. Same thing for the host delegate Miss China Xiao Tang who's also not looking her best.
