Catriona Gray Becomes Miss Universe 2018

Standard

Among the many beautiful ladies who walked the stage in December 16, 2018 at the IMPACT Arena in Thailand was no other than Catriona Gray.  Representing the Philippines for the 67th Miss Universe beauty pageant, the 24-year old Australian-Filipino took home the crown and the Miss Universe title, making her the fourth Miss Philippines to win the pageant.

Born on January 6, 1994 in Queensland, Australia, Catriona Elisa Magnayon Gray was named after her paternal grandmother.  She grew up in Australia and after graduating from high school, she moved to the Philippines where she later became a commercial model.

Gray has accomplished quite a lot of things at such a young age.  The beauty queen has received her master’s certificate from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and another certificate for Outdoors Recreation.  She is also a black-belter in Choi Kwan Do, a TV host, pop singer, and stage actress.  On her spare time, she has dedicated herself to giving back to the community by doing volunteer work for the children.

Why Shouldn’t You Scold Your Child for Their Bad Results

Standard

It’s easy to blame your child for the bad results he received. “Why didn’t you pay attention in class?!” “You don’t know and you didn’t ask?!” “What were you doing when the teacher was teaching?!” These might have been your first thoughts but it’s really unfair for you to blame your child for her bad […]

Hello Fog!

This morning’s fog felt great somehow.  The first fog of the season.  I finally can say I can feel the winter is coming.  A sign of the upcoming holiday festivities and the nonstop cold weather coming in.  The excitement of it all started kicking in.

Ignorance Is The Root of All These “President-Elect” Chaos

Standard

I am neither for Trump nor for Clinton.  The outcome of this Presidential Election has been nothing more than straight chaos and it has already been crazy throughout the campaigns.  To me, they both have a lot of unwanted publicity and a whole lot more incriminating attitudes  and actions.  It makes me wonder, would the outcome have been the same if Hillary had won the election?

Believe me, I get it.  People are protesting.  There are riots everywhere.  All because Donald Trump won the presidency.  As mentioned, I don’t like him either.  I personally don’t agree with a lot of things he has promised to do for our country.  With Hillary, there are a lot of things I don’t agree with either.  Okay, Freedom of Speech, I’m there, I totally understand that, but all these riots are getting out of bound!  Violence will not resolve anything, nor would it fix America.  So does hatred.  I am not just talking about Anti-Trump protesters.  Ever since Trump won, there have also been news of violence towards gay people, people of a certain religion, etc.  What is up with that?

If anything, what this country needs more are peace and order.  Through that, we have a far more greater chance of fixing of what is left of this country.  Instead of focusing on all these nonsense, find a way to resolve this country’s issues (such as bettering healthcare, education, and the economics).  Hating on a certain group, blowing up or vandalizing places, and all that are acts of an ignorant person who only adds more fuel to the fire.  Things are already bad enough as it is.

We have absolutely no chance of having a better country if people just keeps up with all these chaos.
