Adventures of a Beauty Queen is thrilled to announce that former ABS-CBN reporter Camilla Kim Galvez made into the Top 5 of Mrs Universe 2009!!! She placed 2nd Runner Up and won two other special awards! Her husband Raul Galvez was with her in Riga, Latvia to give her all the love and support she needed during the competition. He also acted as photographer and kept all of Camilla’s friends and fans updated in Manila.

This is what a very proud Raul had to say on his Facebook:

“PRAISE GOD! Camilla won Mrs.Universe 2009 2nd Runner Up, Best in Long Gown and Darling of the Press Award. Now, I can sleep well. It’s now 3AM and I’m still awake just to update you. Thank you for your prayes and support. God bless!”

Out of my 8 Favorites, 5 ladies made it to the Top 5 or won a special award! There were 17 contestants who competed in this year’s Mrs. Universe Pageant.
