Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 16) — Payday Friday brought heavy traffic to major routes in Metro Manila, and no one was spared from the so-called "carmageddon."

Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann was supposed to take EDSA, the Metro's main highway, on Friday night, but the rush hour traffic proved too daunting.


In her Instagram post, the beauty queen said she had to ride the Metro Rail Transit-3 (MRT-3), as she had four events to go to.

While the MRT is known for being jam-packed, especially in cars available to both men and women, the photo showed Lehmann seemingly enjoying the ride.

The former University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) courtside reporter even used the Ateneo Lady Eagles' mantra of "heart strong" and "happy happy."

Lehmann will represent the Philippines in the Miss World 2017 pageant to be held in China on November 18.
