Manila, Philippines – Miss Universe Thailand Chalita Suansan arrived at the Philippines with just a single little luggage, a long ways from her pageant baggage.
The beauty queen is in the country as a tourism ambassador for Thailand. She attended the travel expo held at SMX Convention Center in Pasay City where she met with her Filipino fans.
“I feel so lucky and so happy to be here and meet all my fans. I love everyone,” she told.
Chalita was first admired by the Filipinos amid the Miss Universe 2016 pageant at the Mall of Asia Field last January, where she was proclaimed as an early top pick.
The 22-year-old Thai model revealed that she’s exceptionally interested to enter Philippine show business.
“I am open to the chances or the opportunity to go into show business. I think that it’s a very challenging career if you give me a good chance to learn something or get new experience from this business.”
Realizing that former Miss Universe title holder Dayanara Torres remained in the Philippines for four years after the Miss Universe event in the 90′s, Filipinos are interested if Chalita could possible be open to do the same.
She said, Of course, that will be beyond expectation, but anyways because I believe I can also be Filipino according to my smile and my friendly [personallity], and talent or skill in acting.”
“If there is a chance to work here or do something here for showbiz, that would be good and challenging for me.’
Like most fangirls in the country, Chalita shared that she’s also attracted to Thai star Mario Maurer, who also gained popularity for his viral film Crazy Little Thing Called Love (2010) and his appearance in Star Cinema’s Suddenly It’s Magic (2012) with Erich Gonzales.

“Mariao Maurer is my favorite star in Thailand.”
“I used to work in the airport when I was younger and Mario Maurer is always travelling overseas and I met him that time. I was so excited to meet him,” she confessed.
Meanwhile, before Chalita flew in the Philippines, she found out about the fire in Tondo that left 15,000 homeless. She hopes that in spite of her busy schedule as reigning Miss Universe Thailand and as tourism ambassador, despite everything she’ll still be able to visit the victims.
“Right now, I still have a plan in mind to visit these victims in person if I can make it.
‘I’m sure that in the future, I will come back to the Philippines again to do it but this time because it’s just the first few weeks after the contest, my schedule is a bit busy this time.”
“But of course, when I have opportunity, I’ll come back to fulfill my intentions, for sure.”
Chalita gave words of encouragement through her facebook post last February 10.
