Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach will return to Dubai on March 14. The Filipina beauty queen, who made the announcement on her Instagrapm page, will make an appearance at The Watch House in The Dubai Mall from 6 to 8pm.

“See you for a meet-and-greet with the Filipino community. Beyond excited,” posted the 28-year-old who last visited the city in 2016.

Wurtzbach, the third Filipina to win the Miss Universe crown, is also known for the infamous flub by contest host Steve Harvey, when he wrongly announced Miss Colombia as the winner of the crown. She’s all set to appear in her next movie, called My Perfect You, with heart-throb Gerald Anderson.

“I didn’t realise there’s a lot of [Filipinos] here,” Wurtzbach said in an interview during her last visit. “Even the people who are touring us around were Filipinos and they were very nice. It just feels that like home. It’s great.”
