MANILA, Philippines — After acing the runway challenge, Cebu Province’s representative Steffi Rose Aberasturi continues to shine in the challenges that followed, including those from the lock-in.
In her tourism video, she takes viewers in and around the Queen City of the South.
“Cebu… home of endless coastlines, warm local hospitality, and beautiful stories to tell. Here, you are not just a guest, you are family! Immerse in rich culture and heritage. Indulge in unique culinary escapades, swim in the endless magical wonder of nature. Enjoy, relax, and experience one of the best islands the universe can offer,” she said in the video.
From Mactan Island, the Bagacay Point Lighthouse in Liloan, the Kawasan Falls in Ginatilan, the white powdery sands of Camotes Island, to the centuries-old churches like Dauis and the Basilica de Sto. Niño, unto the island’s sumptuous delicacies, including the famed crispy lechon, Steffi walks us through the beauty and scenery that her beloved province has to offer.
“And then there was silence . . .
“Suddenly, everything became uncertain. But we are resilient. Our spirits continue to shine through as we stand tall. We strive not just to live, but to thrive. We stand together because we are in this together.
“And when you’re ready to go on an adventure again, we will be here to welcome you back. See you again in Cebu, in time . . .”
As one of three aspirants with the most number of likes and followers for their Miss Universe Philippines Lazada promotional video, Steffi will be awarded, together with Leren Mae Bautista of Laguna and Kirsten Danielle Delavin of Masbate, during the preliminaries.
She recently celebrated her 27th birthday with her MUPH sisters at their bubble hub in Clark Hilton Sun Valley Resort. Steffi is one of the standard bearers of the Kagandahang Flores camp. — Video from Empire Philippines YouTube channel
