Just the other day, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2017 Elizabeth Clenci was formally recognized as one of the National Peace Ambassadors during the Philippine President Rody Duterte-led 24th anniversary of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) at the Heroes Hall in the Malacañan Palace on September 14, 2017.
The event will augur well for our Queen’s participation in Miss Grand International 2017 in Vietnam where the pageant mission is to stop war. Below is a video as she speaks about her new role for the country.

I don’t usually recommend articles from the Gaily Grind, but this one is just too good to pass up on. I initially thought that I may be towing the line of a subject matter that is just a touch inappropriate for the general patronage of this blog. But after awhile, I realized that the image above is wide enough not to show any indecent images.
In an article posted on the popular site, an anonymous artist paid homage to the former Miss Universe owner – and now a US Presidential aspirant – Donald Trump by coming up with a mosaic portrait where hundreds of penis images were used. Pretty unique, right? And definitely attention-grabbing.
So since we’re talking about an individual who wants to become the next President of the US of A, why don’t we segue to the Philippine political landscape and turn our heads to the different personalities who have already signed their bid to run for the country’s top post in the May, 2016 national elections.
Is there an equally creative person out there who can make something like the Donald Trump image above but using a more novel approach? That’s the challenge!

But you know what the bigger challenge is? Choosing the right aspirant to vote as Philippine President next year. There are more than twenty (20) vying for the position, but allow me to zero in on just 4-5 of them. Are you for Mar Roxas? Or do you fancy the relatively inexperienced Grace Poe? Perhaps, you want to stick it out with the “experienced” and controversial Jejomar Binay? Or for the more feisty-loving voters, Miriam Defensor Santiago could be the better choice. And why don’t we complete the magic circle by including Rodrigo Duterte who hasn’t signified any intentions of running, but might just pull a surprise somewhere along the way.
Let me hear your voice on this one, dear readers. 🙂
