Confidently beautiful with a heart♥

Still on the hype of yesterdays pageant... Yey! After 42 years - finally: our 3rd Miss Universe Ms. Pia Alonzo-Wurtzbach.  I was a year old when Ms. Margie Moran won our 2nd crown in 1973.  

My cousin said: "Ang sarap magpa-parlor ngayon!" - because happy ang Berky community. 

A well deserved win for Pia!  There are a lot of "firsts" in this 2015 Miss U pageant.  First time to have a Filipino designer/s to do gowns for National Costume and evening gowns.  Kudos to Mr. Oliver Tolentino for the red gown she wore on the preliminaries and Mr. Albert Andrada for Pia's National Costume and the Royal Blue gown on the Grand coronation night.  And of course first time that the emcee announced the wrong winner.  My heart also goes to Miss Colombia... but I really admire Steve Harvey for taking responsibility of his mistake it takes a lot of guts to do that.  Actually when he announced that Miss Colombia was Miss Universe... I froze, its like everything stopped... I was really hoping that Pia will make it because she gave the best answer among the Top 3 finalists. Her answer embodies every Pinay: we are all "confidently beautiful with a heart."  And we are all "palaban" (we don't easily give up) like Pia said in one of her interviews.
That flirty fierce look

Her fierceness, poise, confidence and elegance made her take home the crown.  I remember Megan Young said "Think murder" on her guesting on GGV before flying to the Miss World pageant in 2013 and that gave us our first Miss World crown.

Just a little trivia here: We also made history with Pia winning the crown: we are now the 1st Asian country to have three Miss Universe crowns.

Again, Congrats to Pia!  This is one of the nicest gifts all the Filipinos will get this Christmas!
