Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Update: 3:07PM THE winner of the Miss Asia Pacific International Fiji will not be participating at the Miss Asia Pacific International pageant in Manila next month.

Elizabeth Tanya Sidal who was crowned the Miss Asia Pacific International Fiji in Suva last month confirmed this today.
