As a part of Philippine's 116th Independence Day celebration in Dubai, Boracay Night Club at Asiana Hotel hosted the first Miss Fil-Independence Dubai – a Pinoy Beauties and live gig. The event saw eleven candidates vie for the title on this year's pageant.
The contestants wowed the judges and the crowd as they paraded their colourful ethnic costumes followed by a display of their elegant Filipiniana dresses.
The candidates and the crowd were also amused by two of Philippines most promising singers Jireh Lim and Bassilyo. Jireh Lim rendered his hits 'Buko' and 'Magkabilang Mundo' while Bassilyo belted his song 'Lord Patawad'.
Janet Erica Agay, a native of Montalban, Rizal in the Philippines brought home the crown while Hannah Misk and Donna Decena were adjudged as first and second runners up respectively.
