Venus (Ms. Philippines) may have failed to bring the much-coveted crown but certainly her presence in the event made a lot of difference in terms of our self worth..in times when the world watched how a Filipino managed to take the lives of innocent people during the stand-off in Manila yesterday, certainly Venus brought us something to celebrate and be proud of...Congrats Venus, you are to me the saving grace in this sad and painful times...
Having braved controversy on account of her late-registered BirthCert and then overcome it to recover the Binibining Pilipinas beauty crown in time, MVRaj could have answered WBaldwin confidently: "The biggest mistake I may have ever made was omitting the inelegance of my complicated origins when I competed for the Binibining Pilipinas beauty crown. I corrected the mistake by personally declaring a sad truth about my humble international beginnings. Happily, doing the right thing when it became due worked things out wonderfully and so, thank you so much to my family for all the love and support, for here I am with audacity of hope to try to win as Miss Universe 2010!”
A colleague of mine at work asked me how would I have answered this Ms. Universe Question. I would have answered this question plain & simple."The greatest mistake of my life is not being able to apply for a passport early on. If I was able to apply for a passport in my much younger years, I could have done two things --FIRST, I could have more time for training for this prestigious pageant (remember the only thing was needed was a passport for Bb. Pilipinas Foundation to accept the nationality of Venus). The training I had, never prepared me for the obvious...that I am here competing with very good-natured ladies, who equally deserves this much-coveted crown; andThe last thing, I could have traveled to one or two countries whom at least one of these very amazing ladies represent, it could have prepared me to explore the very rich cultures each country possess, and I would have been able to converse with friends I gained in the few days that I have been here. I could have said, "Good Morning" or "Thank you" in their own language, and would immediately break the barriers!That is the greatest mistake I could think of. But, look at the "silver-lining"...Las Vegas, Nevada...is the FIRST Foreign place I've been to...and the USA, being first COUNTRY I ever traveled to! And like many, FIRST things in your life...this place will hold a very MEMORABLE PLACE in my HEART!"********I think, that would have given our country the coveted Ms. Universe Crown!!!By the way, this is a very hard question to answer because of one thing...WE DON'T WANT TO ADMIT WE MADE A MISTAKE. We don't know that we NEED to make mistakes...when that is the only thing that would prepare us for life's difficult phases. Mistakes, makes us do the RIGHT thing, on the next time it happens again. They're are not regrets...we should look at them as LIFE LEARNINGS!"
