No need to cry over the back-to-back failures. Who owned the crowns in 2013 anyways?
Miss Earth and Jamie Herrell provided our brightest spot this year
Pending the results of Miss Tourism International 2014 on December 31, the Philippines failed in all the other back-to-back bids for the year. But there really is no need to sulk and continue fighting with other nationalities in the region on who is more superior or extra blessed in the world of international beauty competitions. After all, we have already proven ourselves capable of becoming a pageant powerhouse – not just a country that places but a nation that has solid victories to back up the claim.
Save a couple of nations outside Asia, who else can show real combined successes in Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International and Miss Earth? And we’re not even factoring in Miss Supranational and Miss Tourism International yet. Even in the now-in-limbo-but-previously-regarded-as-Grand-Slam Miss Tourism Queen International, we have already scored a win. Sure, Miss Intercontinental continues to be elusive. But is that enough to invalidate our achievements? I don’t think so.
Even if Bianca, Yvethe and Valerie were not successful in their back-to-back missions, we can always move on and dream more, right?
It ain't over till it's over for Angeli and Glennifer
Your blogger is not the kind of individual who would resort to small talks and lame punchlines just to prove a point. I’m not even the type to take on a ‘mean girl’ attitude just to throw my weight around. But what’s the sense in all of this? Simple. We have already earned the respect of other countries in this regard. Let us not be goaded into stooping down to levels of desperation. Let Osmel Sousa’s graceful public demeanor in defeat guide us in the path towards online pride.
You don’t achieve a string of successes in something and then suddenly slide back to wannabe-mode just because of stumbling blocks along the way. We can continue to dream more and remain positive at the same time. And please stress on the word “more“.
At the end of the day, we have the top crowns in our enviable collection, while others are still searching for their first. 😉
Hi! Norman here. When I'm not working, I spend most of my free time planning on daily blogs. If you will notice, I always make sure that a fresh topic comes out everyday - not an easy thing to do but it's all good. Thanks for dropping by and enjoy the visit!
