And now, a message from Jonas A. Gaffud of the Miss Universe Philippines Organization:
”I hope you will help us by subscribing to Ring Light (www.empire.ph) rather than sharing and watching videos copied from the site. There were tech difficulties but please understand our situation. But we are working and trying our best to improve. Your subscription will help the organization a lot specially in the future years. So thank you to our supporters. For now we are just praying for our safety. We will give you the best show we can despite the hurdles brought about by the pandemic. This is a phenomenal story of resilience. Maraming Salamat po.”
And now, your blogger’s message:
#Episode7 | Stand Up and Awe should premiere around 9pm onwards tonight. I hope that those so-called “IT Experts” (read: hackers) give the national pageant a chance to run everything smoothly instead of attacking the Empire.ph site via DDOS. There are so many people awaiting both Preliminaries and Finals. If you do not have the love and passion for pageantry like we do, then just sleep the night off – and the entire weekend for that matter – to allow us to enjoy the events.
