It was 1963. For Elsa Payumo, it was the year of her life.

People were cheering, crowds were lining up, and heads were peering just to get a glimpse of the newly crowned Miss Caltex. It was the young elsa standing in a prim posture, her short hair crowned with a tiara. She wore a smile that showed victory, elegance, and intelligence. The entire country fell in love with the newest darling of Caltex. ELsa was showered with fame and glamor, yet her time to shine had just begin.
