Miss Universe 2022 Alicia Faubel captivated the hearts of many Pinoys when she shared a video clip of her enjoying a “street food mukbang” while in Manila.

On Instagram, Alicia posted a video of herself buying some street foods and even treating a kid named Patrick to some ‘tokneneng.’

She can be heard in the video speaking in Tagalog with the kid, saying, “Gusto mo ‘to? Ilan?”

The two shared a few more laughs as they ate some street food. Alicia even got into a tricycle with Patrick where she continued to talk with him in Tagalog.

She even asked, “Sino ang favorite Miss Universe mo?” The boy pointed at her and said, “Ikaw!”


Alicia wrote in the caption, “Mabait at sobrang sweet si Kuya Patrick! Sa susunod mukbang tayo.”

The beauty queen explained in a separate Instagram post that her heart is close to the Filipino people because she lived in the country for three years. She has recently returned to the Philippines and said it still felt like home.

She wrote, “Mabuhay Philippines! Finally, after two years of waiting, I am back in the Philippines. Manila was home for me for almost 3 years and even though I don’t have Filipino blood my heart has always been part of the Philippines, and once again it doesn’t fail to make me feel like it’s my own home.”

Alicia said she’s always in awe of the Filipinos’ hospitality and warmth and added she’ll try to make the most of the short time she’s here to enjoy the country.

“Once again thank you for all of the love and support that I’m receiving every day. Maraming salamat po,” she added.

Alicia is in the Philippines to attend the BYS Fashion Week held between October 6 to 8. She’s set to compete with our own Miss Universe bet, Celeste Cortesi, in the Miss Universe 2022 pageant on January 14, 2023, in New Orleans, Louisiana.
