With the recent bombings in Davao and Polomolok of late, do these scary events give the Miss Universe Organization reason/s to think twice about the hosting of Miss Universe in the country come January 30, 2017? A lot of talks and preparations have already been initialized and completed. People involved are already spinning around trying to cover all bases possible. Is there no turning back? Is it really full steam ahead regardless?
My answer is simple. It will happen. Security may be super tighter than ever before but it will take place. At lot has already been done and everything seems to be falling in the right places regardless of what just happened in the south.
In fact, Okada Manila (video below) has already been reported to be the Official Residence of the 65th Miss Universe candidates – a really plush property if you ask me.

Personally, I am not giving my full thumbs up to the hosting because of expenses and all. But since Casino owners (plus other moneyed sponsors in the private sector) are shouldering the bills, then I cannot be eternally opposed to the expensive beauty extravaganza.
But high-level security will be a concern nobody among the worldwide pageant fans and followers can wrap around their fingers with. The measures will be beyond anything you have ever imagined possible. It should still be all good (with just a slight hint of doubt that can be hopefully dispelled). 😉
