  1. When the announcement of this new pageant came up, I laughed at the title – kasi parang mabantut pakinggan. But this pageant proved me wrong. after 14 years, this pageant showed it’s strength and endurance.

    With so many new pageants, Miss Earth stood out from the rest. Maintaining the 80+ delegates unlike the other new pageants by which one website is heavily promoting and heavily bashing Miss Earth, which both are now going down.

    Kudos to Carousel production. Yes the production is below par compared to Miss Universe, but the pageant’s dedication to it’s cause – which is the environment, made Miss Earth one of the top 3 pageants on earth.

    • I agree with you totally. To me it’s actually #2 next to Miss World if we talk about pageants that truly value women. But for pageant fanatics who love excitement and controversies, Miss Universe is unbeatable. And browsing at comments here, stories related to MU draw the biggest readership percentage. 🙂

  2. Malaki na rin ang pinagbago ng patimpalak sa Ms. Earth magmula nang nabuo noong 2001. Kahit maliit sa tingin ng iba marami ng natulungan ng pamunuan ng Ms.Earth. Hindi gaya ng ibang patimpalak ng pagandahan sa ibang bansa mukhang palubog na yata. Buti pa sila, lahat ng nanalo sa Miss Earth ay naglilibot sa ibang bansa at hindi naka-angkla lamang sa isang sulok na naghihintay.

  3. Her simplistic projection brought out the best of her — truly mesmerizing and inspiring. Catharina Svernsson-Brink, indeed, was the rightful winner.

    A terrific remembrance, Norman! 🙂

    • She has a familiar resemblance to Paris Hilton – only more classy, elegance, and wisdom

      • I’m browsing planet romeo through my mobile & i set my location to Copenhagen for i’m going there on saturday for a weekend holiday. As always, i can’t help but get mesmerized by all the hot blonde blue eyed gay guys. But for a moment, they look all the same to me. Is it just me or us being asians tend to generalize that all blondes are the same? And we usually associate the ones we see to the ones we know. The same generalization I made when i first came here in Italy, oh all these hot hairy bears! I was like did I just meet you yesterday at the sauna?! Stupid me. But according to my Italian bf, we asians, look all the same for him. So I guess it’s human nature. By the way Norman, how to post pic & a video clip here? We just crowned Miss Italia last week. The show was very dynamic, first time for Italy to it that way. More like a VS fashion show rather than a classic pageant.
