November 30, 2015- Thirty six hunks from around the world competed for the Mr. International 2015 pageant held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila.
During the candidates' stay in the country, they visited several destinations that gave them a glimpse of what the Philippines has to offer. They toured around the historical sites of Ilocos Norte and explored the walls of Intramuros. They were also hosted by Lydia's Lechon for a sumptuous feast of Filipino cuisine favorites at the original branch in Baclaran last November 26, 2015.
"Filipinos are I think the warmest and loveliest people I've ever met." said Mr. International USA after being graciously welcomed by Lydia's Lechon's owner Mrs. Lydia De Roca.
Everyone was treated to a feast as the candidates enjoyed the luncheon prepared by Lydia's Lechon. Of course, the meal highlight was the famous lechon from Lydia's which everyone raved about.
"The food is excellent as well as the people around." stated Mr. International Spain when asked about his experience at Lydia's.
