“You really are confidently beautiful with a heart,” Peña said, repeating the 26-year-old beauty queen’s signature line.

During the courtesy call, Peña, 46, presented Wurtzbach with a Key to the City as well as a plaque of appreciation and a special gift prepared by the Makati government.

“Makati is very proud of Ms. Wurtzbach for reclaiming the Miss Universe crown for the Philippines after 42 long years. She has inspired millions of people around the world, including the people of Makati, with her indomitable spirit and extraordinary determination to realize her dream,” he added.

Wurtzbach, who who didn’t show a hint of discomfort despite the scorching heat, thanked the local residents for the warm welcome that she received.

“Yung korona ko po, korona nyo rin po. Para po ito sa Pilipinas. Mabuhay po tayong lahat,” she told the crowd.(Randy K. Ortega)
