Los Baños, Laguna- Candidate number 17 Jonnadel Dongsal of Brgy. Timugan won the title of Miss Los Baños 2012 last night at the Paciano Rizal Park.

The question asked to Miss Dongsal in the Question and Answer Portion was “Halimbawa mayroon kang sariling party at pwede kang mag-imbita ng kahit na sino. Sino sa tatlong ito ang iimbitahan mo, si President Noynoy Aquino, si Manny Pacquiao, o si Derek Ramsay?”

“Ang akin pong iimbitahan ay si P-Noy po… Dahil hindi naman po bongga yung party ko… Hindi tulad ng mga handaan sa Malacañang, sa mga munisipyo. Hindi ganun karangya. Gusto ko ipakita sa kaniya na kahit hindi ganun kaganda yung party na pupuntahan niya sa amin, nagkakaisa naman kami sa amin and kung ano po yung napaghandaan, yun po iyong pinaghirapan namin. Yun lang po at maraming salamat,” answered Miss Dongsal.

 “First time kong manalo nang may title kasi matagal na ako nasali ng pageant pero hindi pa rin ako nanalo. Dinededicate ko ang pagkapanalo ko sa family ko at kay God. Alam mo ba na may piso pa ako sa paa bilang lucky charm,” said Miss Los Baños 2012.

Supporters and family of the candidates filled the coronation night of Miss Los Baños 2012. Guest singer Jimmy Bondoc also serenaded the ladies with his hit song “Let me be the one.”
