Pilar was raised in Singapore, but has always had questions about her unique heritage. Her father is of Chinese-Indian descent while her mother is of Portuguese-Indo-Chinese-Dutch descent. Arlando speaks 4 languages, English, Malay, Mandarin (Basic) and Portuguese (Kristang). At the moment, she is also taking up French. She is currently majoring in her Travel, Tourism and Hospitality Management Diploma at the Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS).
Miss World Singapore 2009
During the Miss World Singapore pageant, She earned the 2nd Runner Up 2009/10 title; however, due to the furor that arose (credit fraud scandal, bipolar disorder and the infamous mocking of her English language skills by some citizens of Singapore) about the current title holder at that time, Ris Low, she eventually took over her Low’s reign as Miss World Singapore 2009/10. Arlando had also attained a few subsidiary awards during her Miss World Singapore pageant in 2009. Her other titles include: Miss World University Singapore 2009, Miss Personality 2009, Miss Abry 2009, Miss Vitality 2nd Runner Up 2009.
