Only a pinoy can understand, love and hate another pinoy in a major major way … just like what happened to the recent MU … and only a pinoy comedy can make a pinoy really kilig and laugh to death in a major way …. redeeming ba?
So to wash out the negativity and celebrate “freedom of fashion” as Jecinta (Ms Australia 2nd ru said – btw, did you noticed that her gown looked like made in the Philippines?) said … I kinda stumbled the following remake of Petrang Kabayo …. Vice Ganda !!! Tse!
BUT NOTHING REALLY BEATS THIS NEXT VIDEO (courtesy of VJ FLORESCA and friends in their pink room pa and matching pjs!)
NOTE: DAPAT SI VJ ANG NAG DESIGN NG EG & NC … TALAGA PLS LANG!!
We luv yah !!! Ha,ha,ha !!! Thanks for sharing this !
IT IS A MAJOR MAJOR
ACHIEVEMENT OF VENUS ….
AND IN MAJOR WAY, THE SPOTLIGHT HAS BEEN FOCUSED AGAIN
TO THE PHILIPPINES IN A MAJOR EVENT !!!
WE SHOULD CELEBRATE IN A MAJOR WAY !!!
THANK YOU VENUS, WE LOVE YOU !!!
WE CANNOT ASK FOR MORE THAN THIS !!!
Now back to reality ….
Wow !!!! Life is really boring, after Miss Universe, that is why everyday of the 15 day competition for me was preciously exciting in a major way!!! Obvious ba sa dami ng posts ko. It’s really full of intrigue – drama, etc among the fans and avid supporters …. So after this, nothing really major to write na naman …
Now, minutes after the crown was given to Mexico, all these comments and reactions regarding Venus’ quick answer to the question “What is the biggest mistake you have done in the past and how did you correct it” surely flooded the gates of the internet forum, blogs, etc, in a major major way, like an earthquake, that it overpowered the fact that Venus actually won over 80 candidates and some of the MAJOR players like Ireland, Venezuela, USA, Colombia … etc. And she is the ONLY ASIAN !!!!
My question is : “HOW WOULD YOU COMPARE TO VENUS, IF YOU WERE THE ONE STANDING AND BEING ASKED THAT QUESTION?”
In my 22 years of LIFE as a GAY GUY, I competed in a few gay beauty pageants, and ALL I CAN SAY is that when you are standing there, you will be soooo nervous in a MAJOR WAY, that you would not be able to think properly and answer the question like Gloria Diaz did. Some gay beauty pageants even distributes the questions to the contestants beforehand for them to think and formulate the answers. Even then, some fail to deliver a coherent and strong answer. So I am not in a position to judge the answer of Venus, nor to comment on it! That was her impromptu answer!
But overall, I personally believe that more training on this aspect (Q&A) for our contestants is needed, as this is the final determining factor to win the crown – plus of course, the much talked about evening gown and national costume.
FORMULA FOR WINNING MISS UNIVERSE
BODY = VENUS LIKE (lean, tall, 22 inches waist), should really be TALL!!!
BRAIN = GLORIA DIAZ LIKE
ATTITUDE = DAYANARA TORRES, AND EVEN VENUS LIKE
THE BEST GOWNS & NATIONAL COSTUMES TO WEAR = FILIPINO DESIGNERS
and to answer the question:
WE SHOULD LEARN FROM OUR BIGGEST MISTAKES IN THE PAST AND TRY TO CORRECT IT IN A MAJOR WAY IN THE NEXT PAGEANTS, YUN LANG !!!
