I heard from the grapevine it is almost confirmed that the Official Residence of Miss Universe 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand will be Novotel Muang Thong Thani (or Novotel Bangkok Impact) because it is located just beside the Impact Arena where the finals will be held. Though not yet announced, the said property is already fully booked now. So if you are – just like me – heading to the Land of Smiles come December, better make early bookings for the remaining accomodations around the area or near the old airport at Don Muang. Especially if you’re picky about getting relatively luxurious dogs while there.
On another note, I feel a bit bad about host delegate Sophida Kanchanarin who has lost a great deal of support from her pageant-loving countrymen. Someone told me that he lost all hope of getting a good fighting chance for the title this year when she won. And his sentiments are echoed by not just a few. Hopefully, we will see a dramatic transformation in the next couple of months.
