Along with Joseph Doruelo's recent modeling escapade here in Thailand last April, came the opportunity to travel to the most sought-after countryside destinations in the Land of Smiles. And what could be more wonderful than doing one's job while also being feted with the country's top lifestyle amenities? Such is the case of our reigning Mister Global Philippines 2014 who couldn't be happier while doing his modeling shoot at the famed  Marino place (The Secret Cliff Hotel). The masterful Thai photographer Voragorn Wannawong all captured the professional shots of Joseph while channeling his innermost cosmopolitan vibes in the European-themed vicinity.

Of course, the opportunities he is now enjoying wasn't just
offered to him on a whim. His victorious stint in the Misters of the Philippines as well as his impressive performance in the Mister Global tilt had paved his way for more blessings and luck which he dearly deserved. And during the course of his stay in Thailand, I was able to ask him a random question about the motivating factors that made him decide to join the pageant. Luckily, Joseph didn't hold back and was in fact very generous with his response albeit so tired and exhausted from his day's work.

"Actually, for 2 consecutive years many people were inviting me to join and be a part of Mister Philippines, but that year I was still studying and I needed to set my priorities. But after I passed the Board licensure exam for nurses last May 2014, again many people encouraged me to join Misters of the Philippines, so I tried, then I made it to be one of the candidates. Because for me, my personal background and my credentials are qualified and fitted to
become one of the Misters of Philippines. At yun na nga I won the Mister global Philippines. I have represented the Philippines in the global pageant stage and it was a great opportunity lalo nat nasama ako as (especially that I was included as) one of the finalists not bad na yun (it wasn't bad afterall), hindi man ako ang tinanghal na Mister Global 2015 pero ang buong pilipino na tumulong at sumuporta sayo buong mundo ay para kana ring nanalo. (I may not have won the Mister Global 2015 title but I still felt being a winner because I had all the support of my fellow countrymen)."

Joseph is presently in Manila and is expected to be back in Bangkok, Thailand by the third week of June this year for another modeling gig and hopefully for a much bigger and brighter opportunities. And your blogger couldn't wait to meet him again for another round of well-meaning and sensible conversation.:)
