When Ali Forbes failed to make it as an Official Candidate of Bb. Pilipinas 2015 last night, my heart went out for her. It wasn’t just because she should’ve already been a shoo-in after placing as 2nd Runner-Up during Bb. Pilipinas 2012 (and later on promoted to 1st Runner-Up after Elaine Kay Moll was given the title of Miss Supranational Philippines 2012). The girl simply wants to give the nationals another try before finally leaving her colorful pageant career behind. After all, once a Binibini, always a Binibini. And if it is in her fate to nail a crown, then so be it. Otherwise, she will have no regrets or what-ifs when she looks back in the future and asks questions that she can no longer have clear answers to if she didn’t make the second attempt.
Watch her glorious moment during the Bb. Pilipinas 2012 Finals.

But her big dream was nipped in the bud less than 12 hours ago as this post was uploaded. I can share all the songs she has sung in all her previous lounge gigs to reflect the kind of emotions she must be feeling right now (a lot of them could be applicable amyways) . But I decided to go with one video where she is being shown singing “Going Out of My Head” during a bar set. The song is so apt if the wishful recipient is the Bb. Pilipinas crown.

Chin up, Ali!
There could be a different kind of silver lining out in the sky for you. It may not be visible by way of a Bb. Pilipinas crown, but it will most likely be something else that should make for the still-fresh heartbreak. 🙂
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!
