The title of this short blog entry says it all.
We have waited long enough.
And we need a good reason to heave a sigh of relief…
And smile. 🙂

For the past few days, we saw three (3) significant country participants in Miss Universe crowning their representatives one after another:
Spain 🇪🇸 – with 5’9.5” Angela Ponce, the first-ever transgender national winner to compete in our favorite pageant;
Australia 🇦🇺 – with Francesca Hung, the vibrant 5’8” Chinese-Irish Aussie who is in the midst of her studies for a Masteral degree in Publishing;
and Thailand 🇹🇭 – with Sophida Kanchanarin, the 5’7” well-spoken Finance major from the University of Nevada in Las Vegas with a profession in Investment Banking.
Let’s compare them individually to our very own.
How does this troika of newly-crowned contenders measure up to Miss Universe Philippines 🇵🇭 2018 Catriona Gray, dear readers?
Is Cat still ahead of the pack?

Watch the news feature of my colleague Jeff Fernando on UKG about Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray.
I have already blogged about the front-runner. Now here is the other hot favorite for Miss Universe Thailand 2018 is Thai-Italian beauty Valentina Giardullo – Ploy who is 24 years old and stands 165cm. She is a musician who can perform acoustic songs like a pro (shades of our very own Catriona Gray’s Talent).
However, I must admit that she is a lot shorter than Vena. And knowing the penchant of Thais for statuesque winners, this could be her setback.
Watch Valentina now during the swimsuit competition of the pageant.
Here is a music video of Valentina doing an Italian song “Secretamente”.
