I don’t know why i wasn’t able to post this on my wordpress. I actually wrote this article and posted this on my facebook page 7 days before the Miss Universe finals. I guess it’s never too late to post it here.
For the first time , two global pageants will be happening a few days before Christmas, and although i am very partial to #MissUniverse Pageant as it’s my favorite show on earth. I will still be watching The #MissWorld Pageant no matter how boring i find it to be. Well, taste is subjective.
And yes Christmas is just around the corner yet i don’t get excited this yuletide season, not as much as i used to when i was a kid. But if there’s one thing that always excites me no matter what my age or my mood is, it’s the miss universe pageant. I don’t know why , all i know is i learned my first world’s geography because of miss universe.
I learned at such a young age that Venezuela is in South America. the capital city of Cyprus is Nicosia and although Brazil is the biggest country in south america, Brazillians actually speak Portugese not spanish. I also learned that there are white people in South Africa, especially after seeing a white south african woman bagged the miss universe title.
I also learned how to answer simple and complicated questions the miss universe way and i hate to admit that sometimes they’re quite helpful during your job interviews. Lol.
I learned what “live via satellite” means at age 6, and that overused phrase inner beauty. Superficial as it may seem, i will always be thankful to those moments when miss universe taught me the virtue of patience. Glued to my seat, and patiently waiting for the announcement of the semi-finalists amidst those countless tv commercials that seem eternity.
And most of all i learned that Life is not always all about winning. Enjoying your journey with or without a crown is what truly matters.
***By the time i posted this on wordpress, Miss Philippines already won the Miss Universe title in a very dramatic way. Congrats Pia.
