16 comments on “A Message from Miss Intercontinental Cindy Obeñita

  1. Cindy’s call for responsible electoral choices is timely and a patriotic gesture. However, it could have resonated more if the textual message at least referenced Miss Intercontinental’s “Power of Beauty” advocacy. If her beautiful styling– poses, gowns, accessories–was the “Power of Beauty” messaging, the dissonance created between her attractive getup and patriotic call eclipsed the very important advice for citizens for discernment in this electoral exercise.

    But I appreciate Cindy’s efforts. Initiatives like this make beauty queens relevant.

    • Cindy’s “Power of Beauty” lies in her brains and her heart. With a simple attire and no makeup, her message to her fellow citizens will come across just as effectively.

    • My troll stalkers are on the prowl again! My comments were positive and constructive for anyone to thumbs down for. I hope they come out of their crypts and verbalize their objections in the spirit of free exchange of ideas. And polite language please!

  2. Pinanganak ako 1966, masaya at masagana buhay noon… saksi ako sa mga proyekto ng gobyerno para sa mahihirap… landed ang lola ko at yung portion ng lupain (planted wd cocdonut nd saba banana) niya was expropriated turned BLISS housing awarded to the poor. Mga 150 houses. Just my opinion, Maganda namumuno noon sa gobyerno meron vision mission sa kapakanan ng mga mahihirap.. i am 55 years old now reminiscing my happy childhood during the time of Marcos..

    • No sa lahat ng political dynasties. Hindi progress ang political dynasty.

      Everytime I fly back to the Philippines at nakikita ko ang mga shanty towns malapit sa airport from the air, iniicip ko, “What is wrong with our leaders that they allow this to happen?”

      Well, sino ang mga leaders natin? Mga political dynasties.

      Wala tayo makikinabang sa mga bulok na political dynasties na yan. Self-serving lang sila lahat at their core. Sila ang dahilan na may mahihirap sa bansa natin.

      Oras na para ang middle class ang uupo sa Malacañang.

      • The Philippine constitution forbids political dynasties but for it to be a law, Congress has to pass it. But everytime a bill on it is presented it has never moved up for discussion because a great majority of our honorable lawmakers are members of political dynasties.

      • In addition, there is a recent scholarly study conducted by Ateneo University inversely correlating presence of political dynasties in a region to its development index. The finding is that the tighter the grip of political clans in a region, the poorer the people are.

      • @Scorg

        Isn’t it extremely Hypocritical for Ateneo to promote this study when their own alumnis are from political dynasties?.. And yet Ateneo is very public and vocal in supporting Mar Roxas, Noynoy Aquino, and Leni Robredo who are all from Political Dynasties?… Leni Robredo may only be a daughter of a Marcos-Apointed Municipal and then later a Regional trial court Judge, Antonio Gerona but she did marry into the biggest Political Dynasty of CamSur which is the Robredo-Villafuerte clan who’s some notable members is former Governor and Marcos era Trade Minister, Luis Robredo Villafuerte (who’s bestfriends with her father) and former DILG secretary Jessie Villafuerte Robredo, her husband? Porque ba nag-aaway ang mga magkamag-anak for power e hindi na political dynasty?🙄

    • Good that you had a happy childhood. Meanwhile there were people who were getting tortured, wrongfully imprisoned, and disappearing without a trace, just because they dared to speak up. But hey, at least you and your landed family were safe though, right?

    • Ang galing naman. landed ang lola mo. Mayaman. Crony at tuta ng mapang aping regimen. Noon ba may binibigay na pera sa mahihirap? Nutribun lang daw binigay noon. Ang galing mo GAGA KA!

    • So you are “55 years old now and reminshing the happy childhood during the time of Marcos” as scion of a landed gentry in Mindanao. So you did not hear any of the atrocities committed by the regime among Christians, Muslims and lumads. The Marcos-controlled media must have made you completely stone deaf. This wonderful Sunday morning, I’d like to share with you a Lenten message to meninish by. It’s not a biblical passage because I don’t know your religious affiliation, but words of wisdom from a song that we used to sing in the choir and has guided my entire life. Soon you will face your Creator, as we all are, leaving behind all our earthly possessions, and has to answer God for the ultimate question: what did you do to the least of your brethren?

      “In the evening of my life I shall look to the sunset,
      At a moment in my life when the night is due.
      And the question I shall ask only I can answer.
      Was I brave and strong and true?
      Did I fill the world with love my whole life through?”

      • I heard a lot of Atrocities from the Cojuangco Clan like the Mendiola Massacre and Hacienda Luisita Massacre.. and yet, I see a lot of your profiles who are very public in showcasing their support for the Cojuangco-Aquino’s political puppet, Leni Robredo… 🤣🤣🤣

    • May dugong Abao ako Cindy, taga Camiguin rin papa ko, pero sa agusan del norte ako pinanganak… im so proud of you..

      • dapat maputukan ka ng bulkan na gaga ka! Masagasaan ng pison! at malunod sa arctic ocean na hayop ka!!!!
