Christmas 2015 in my country, the Philippines, is merrier than the usual Christmases in the past. Aside from festive, there is an overwhelming feelings of pride. This is because, five days prior to the actual Christmas Day, me and my fellow Filipinos received a very special and awe inspiring gift. It is the gift of being so proud to be a Filipino.
Thanks to the beautiful, witty and very regal Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, the Philippine candidate who won the 64th Miss Universe pageant! Her winning the coveted crown which the whole country has been wishing, praying and craving for in more than 4 decades has made all Filipinos feel so proud, happy and jubilant.
It’s so awesome to be Pinoy this Christmas. Thank you Pia for this awesome feeling!
Panalo tayo ngayong Pasko!
