Even princesses need a me-time just like everybody. And what better way to reward the future queens is to pamper them with relaxing massage that will rejuvenate and heal their tired body and muscles from a whole day of commitment as candidates of Miss Philippines Earth 2016.
Six lovely ladies representing their hometown visited Soneva Spa in Tomas Morato, Quezon City, early this afternoon. Soneva Spa specializes in facial and body spa treatments and has been a sponsor of the Miss Philippines Earth beauty pageant.
Eva Eunice Reinoso
Representing Northern Luzon, from City of Alaminos, is Eva Eunice Reinoso who is turning 22 tomorrow, May 3. Eunice is a Conservatory of Music Majoring in Voice Musical Theater student from University of Santo Tomas. Her advocacy is to encourage everyone to fight against nature pollution.
“Super sarap ng paghihilot sa akin ni ate. The experience here (Soneva) is very amazing,” Eunice shared of her massage treatment experience.

Imelda Bautista Schweighart
From Southern Luzon, representing Puerto Princesa, we also met Imelda Schweighart, 20-year old Researcher from Palawan. Imelda is also the Miss Puerto Princesa 2016 who is very proud of her province, especially its marine biodiversity and beaches.
“My experience with Soneva is very therapeutic and I loved the therapist’s touch. I felt like I was healed in a jiffy,” said the lovely candidate who is advocating soil protection from genetically modified organisms (GMO) and chemically engineered seeds. At the same time, Imelda is also pushing for organic farming.
Imelda can be reached through her Facebook account Imelda Bautista Schweighart.
Justine Blaire Galang
From NCR and representing Paranaque City, 23-year old Justine Blaire Galang shared to us her advocacy which is to promote responsible traveling. It’s no surprise because Blaire works as a flight attendant and has travel to various places in the world. She lists Japan, Singapore, and Canada as the cleanest country she have been to. Blaire believes that the youth can really help in promoting her chosen advocacy for our country to attract more tourists and responsible travelers.
“The experience in Soneva Spa is really amazing. The staff are friendly and accommodating. We all had a great time here,” answered Blaire when we asked about her massage treatment.
Although a first-timer in pageant competition, Justine looks very positive and is having fun of the journey. “I’m just enjoying this pageant. No pressure and no worries,” shared Justine.

Ricci Joy Jereza
All the way from Visayas region, Ricci Joy Jereza is carrying the name and beauty of Bacolod City. The 24-year old candidate is a brand ambassadress, professional singer, a consultant strategist, event host, and backpacker. All the more that a lady like Ricci needs a much needed pampering time.
“Ang sarap. Masarap talaga ang experience. Very out-of-the-body experience kapag narerelax ka every once in a while. Especially if you’re a modern Filipina, you’re very busy and supporting yourself, and you’re working, as well as being in the pageant,” said the eloquent Miss Philippines Earth candidate.
Ricci’s environmental advocacy is to encourage everyone towards organic farming. “Mahalaga na alam natin kung saan nanggagaling yung pagkain natin so we can, not just maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle, but as well as by that ways we’ll help everyone lessen the use of pesticides, chemicals,” Ricci stated. “Organic food is kinda pricey, than the usual food we can have over the counter, but I always believe that health is wealth. Sounds cliche, that slogan itself, but health, when you take care of it, pag tumanda na tayo dun tayo aani. And now if you’re not taking care of it, mas mahal ang ma-ospital.”

From Mindanao, standing right in front of us is the pretty Bellatrix Tan, 20-year old from Zamboanga City. She had the hilot treatment and she find the experience amazing and relaxing.
A BA Communication graduate from Ateneo de Zamboanga University, Bella believes that strong family ties and teaching the children to plant trees can help save Mother Earth, forever. “If parents can teach their kids with little things like planting trees, conserving our water, it will greatly help our environment,” explained Bella.

Lastly, when asked about her massage treatment, 19-year old Kiara Giel Hamlig Gregorio mentioned, “It has been an absolutely amazing. It is such a pleasure to be having a massage here at this beautiful spa. Of course not only because, they’re also an organic spa.”
