Smilie Punzal of Aurai Fitness (he’s got his lighted sign coming, shortly) was especially proud Salisa Pegeder took the swimsuit (physical fitness in some pageants) phase, Saturday night. Smilie said Salisa has been conditioning for about a month after being recommended by the Island School counselor.
Now that she’s the Miss Kauai Filipina, Smilie said they have a lot less time to do a lot more before the state pageant.
