Last two women standing that led to the announcement of Ann Colis as Miss Globe 2015

It was multi-tasking at its best when I got myself into doing live updates of Miss Globe 2015 earlier this morning.
First off, I was already relaxed knowing that a live streaming was being made available via YouTube. So all I needed to do was to wake up just before 7:30am, fix myself a good cup of coffee and wait for the big event to unfold in front of my eyes. Little did I know that the online broadcast was scrapped at the last minute, and a contact in Canada brought this to my attention at just a few minutes before the actual start. I got restless. How could this be? I even made a post just for to readers to watch the proceedings more conveniently.
And then, boom! I got mail! A friend in Toronto (and also a regular reader) who we shall identify as simply PB, sent me a message saying that he is already inside Rose Theater Brampton and waiting for the show to start. He offered to give me real-time updates without even me asking if he actually could as a personal favor. I profusely thanked him in advance.
So there I was. Doing five (5) different things almost simultaneously. I had to update the blog post here, then update my Facebook page immediately afterwards, then chat with three different people from Aces & Queens waiting for the results, then pick up a check in Pasong Tamo which had to be encashed before 12noon and then mediate on a small issue with another pageant group on a totally unrelated matter. I was scrambling, cursing the slow data, getting edgy with our driver hitting all the humps as if almost by purpose, answering calls from a lot of people, feeling antsy with the long line inside the bank and meeting up with my mom and brother for lunch.
But the efforts were all worth it. Ann Colis won and I was just too ecstatic about getting much attention for it. And back in Toronto, PB just kept on giving me all the updates, even asking Ann to record a brief message for me (which is now on my FB page) and throwing in a lot of sideline comments in the process. Whew!
This is a long day. And an extremely good one at that. Let me congratulate Ann Colis once again for making our dreams of a new crown come true again today. And you know what they say, this could signal something great for the rest of 2015! :-)
Congratulations once more, Miss Globe 2015 Ann Colis!
