Hong Kong is a go-to place for a lot of tourists who love to shop, explore food, and snap that perfect #OOTD for their ‘gram. Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Hong Kong is one of the tourist faves because it showcases about 103 personalities in the world that we can be silly and takes pictures with. Even Pia herself is a fan of the museum. “I go to Madame Tussauds, so I know what it’s like and how fun it is there. And now, thinking that I’m going to be one of them, I’m very honored, I’m very grateful, and I can’t wait to see it,” said Pia in a press release.

Just recently, Pia already underwent the wax museum’s sitting, also known as the measurement process for her wax figure. An entire team from London did Pia’s sitting. During a sitting, up to 200 measurements and photos are taken from every angle of a star to ensure that their wax figure is 100% accurate. Their eyes, hair, and skin are also all color matched from samples.

Pia also makes history as she is the first Filipino figure to be posing in the museum alongside other worldwide stars and icons. This includes Hong Kong’s very own Jackie Chan, ex-POTUS Barack Obama, the blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe, King of Pop Michael Jackson, and many more.

With our very own Miss Universe and MEGA cover star in it, don’t forget to add Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum to your Hong Kong trip next year and get mesmerized by her true-to-life beauty.
