Sabi pa ni Dayanara, “It was only at the beginning of this year that I was able to go back to a country that is very dear to my heart, a country that gave me the opportunity to live, work, and make so many wishes come true. I was ecstatic when I heard that this year’s Miss Universe pageant was coming back to the Philippines. I knew in my heart I needed to be there! So many memories, so many friendships.

“Arriving in the Philippines was honestly like coming back home. The love, the smiles, the hugs it was as if I had never left. My heart was filled with so much love and emotions… brought tears to my eyes… such an emotional journey!

“My days were full in-between my duties as one of the Miss Universe judges – but always making time aside to meet with my old friends and co-workers. I decided to stay longer and be part of ASAP’s 22nd anniversary! ASAP was the show I started as a host together with Martin Nievera, Pops Fernandez, and Ariel Rivera in 1994. Getting back to be on that stage and do a dance number just like before was such a memorable experience. Unforgettable! I will treasure that moment forever.

“Lots of ideas and opportunities kept coming the shows of ABS-CBN, and then I became a member of the Belo Family and Luxe Renew. I’ve been pretty much dedicated and involved with my sons’ lives and now they are much older and I have been able to get back to my career, little by little. The timing was perfect!

“My summer was set, I was ready to go back to the Philippines for the whole summer! I even planned to bring the boys for part of the summer too. Unfortunately, the two projects that were supposed to keep me busy in Manila were pushed back a year!

“Although I’ve been sad about this, I’m still hopeful that things will turn out when they are supposed to my Love and admiration for the Philippines and its loving people remains in my heart…

“For now, I keep connected to my wonderful & loyal fans. I’ll be part of the Binibining Pilipinas USA 2017 this Sunday at Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center as one of its judges together with Dennis Quaid, Gary Catona and Cece Peniston. To be televised at a later date on TFC.

“Will always keep in touch through my social media @dayanarapr (especially on Instagram) any news, events happening you’ll be the first to know!

“Until I come back, hopefully very soon! Hanggang sa muli. Mahal ko kayong lahat!”
