Hiroko and Sayo of Japan – former Miss Universe contestants and beauty winners, visited the beautiful and clean beaches of Cebu early this year …. And they had these beautiful tourism photos that would surely attract visitors to the best and first class resorts in the country ….

Photos of thse pristene sea waters, planked by two perfect Asian beauties …
speaks louder than words !!!
Escorted by two Filipinas working in the resort … these Japanese beauties were indeed Beauty Queens that deserves to be respected, served, admired and pampered …
And maybe, thanked for the honor of visiting the island and promoting it :)
And with these photos … they would have truly promoted tourism and much more so!

Also late this year, during the Miss Earth 2008 competition … the candidates were shown the worst section of the Philippines … especially the polluted and dirty bay areas in Manila … and they were made to clean up these beaches, as part of their contribution …

And these photos speak louder than voice !

Although these beauty queens would have different motives altogether, and it would be unfair to compare both actions, I could not help myself seeing these contrast.

They would have made an impact whichever way you look at it.

But which one is more real and effective, I will leave it up to you to think about!

If the results of the match yesterday … went the other way! Then the title – “He died with a Penis in his mouth!” … (along so with Philippine’s only pride and hope of worldwide recognition …. :)) Would have been a fantastique title of Manny’s best selling biography!

Or how about “HE IS BORN WITH A PENIS IN HIS MOUTH”

A very catchy title of a book …. about the life and times of Manny Pacquiao !

By the way, what is the common factor between Manny and Mel Beckham ???

This is the clue …

O divahhhhhh ???

It was Miss Philippines’ night even before the announcement of the top 4 when she nailed the swimsuit and parading in a beautiful gown which is entirely different from her prelim gown. Her answer in the final question sealed her to the Miss Earth title. I personally was rooting for Miss Tanzania but she over-extended her answer to the question and lost her composure. Indeed, Karla gave the best answer that night. A well deserved win for the Philippines! OMG it’s like a Denise Quinones flashback when she won the Miss Universe crown at her native Puerto Rico.
