Salamat 7.0

Mariel De Leon, Miss International Philippines 2017
Hindi nakaswaksi sa semifinals ng Miss International 2017 ang pambato nating si Mariel De Leon. True-blooded pageant fans are expecting this because there's what we call "MI curse". Let me explain, mga ateng...

2011 - Winner: Ecuador
2012 - Winner: Japan (Ecuador didn't place in the semifinals)
2013 - Winner: Philippines (Japan didn't place in the semifinals)
2014 - Winner: Puerto Rico (Philippines didn't place in the semifinals)
2015 - Winner: Venezuela (Puerto Rico didn't place in the semifinals)
2016 - Winner: Philippines (Venezuela didn't place in the semifinals)
2017 - Winner: Indonesia (Philippines didn't place in the semifinals)

See the trend? Although walang written rule, I think the Miss International Organization is giving other countries a chance to win the crown. Kaya 'wag magpapaniwala sa mga bashers niya na kesyo karma daw sa kanya 'yan o dahil masama ang ugali niya kaya 'di siya napili. Wow ha! Close lang?

She opted to wear a one-piece swimsuit during the finals
Honestly, I cannot take the comments of her bashers. Kesyo mamatay na sana siya, ang taba niya, retokada siya and other hurtful comments. Akala mo personal silang inargabyado ni Mariel. Just like you and me, she has the liberty to say what's on her mind. That for me is a strength of a woman. Very classy pa siya sa mga opinyon niya, kaya mas lalong naiinis ang kabilang panig. CHOS!

Anyways, nakaka-proud pa rin ang pagrepresent niya sa international pageant. She's beautiful, class and regal, fit for Miss International. Although she wasn't able to win the crown, her performance was satisfying and I felt she gave her 100% to represent the country among the sea of beautiful women around the globe. Napagod ako diyan sa English ko ahahaha!

MABUHAY KA, MARIEL! ♥

Mahal kita Miss Melanie, as in, pero hindi ko keri ang post na ito, at unfortunately hindi ako agree. Nakita ko bahagya ang performance nya, eh lamang na lamang nga sa kanya si Miss Peru na hindi din nakasali sa Top 15, sya pa kaya. Masakit man sabihin pero wala naman syang dating, at di ko naman din sasabihin na mataba siya pero hindi maganda ang proportion ng kanyang katawan.

Wala itong kinalaman sa pulitika, pero hindi ko din kasi nakikita ang humility kay ateng, isang bagay na nakakakuha ng suporta ng karamihan. It's not just about being a woman with her own voice and opinion, for me she is a fly who thought she is bigger than the carabao. I thank you.
