Bb. Pilipinas- Universe Venus Raj landed in the Top 5 at the Miss Universe beauty pageant in Las Vegas. Although she failed to bring home the coveted crown, nevertheless, it's still a huge accomplishment for the dusky and gutsy Bicolana on the world stage wherein she bested 78 other beauty titlists to earn 4th runner- up honors.
Oh, if only she expounded and elaborated more on her answer, maybe she could have won it all.
Miss Universe judge and actor William Baldwin asked, "What is one big mistake that you've made in your life and what did you do to make it right?"
"Thank you so much, Sir for that wonderful question," Venus responded and proceeded to greet the audience who in turn cheered her heartily.
"You know what, Sir in my 22 years of existence I can say that there is nothing major major, I mean, problem that I have done in my life. Because I am very confident with my family, with the love that they are giving to me. So, thank you so much that I am here, thank you thank you so much."
Maybe it's about time for the Philippines' future beauty pageant representatives in international competitions to let go of the English language and avail the services of an interpreter in the dreaded Q & A portion.
Maybe it's about time to let our beauty queens use our native tongue to express themselves better. Maybe it's about time that the world hears the beauty of the Filipino language.
