Raj made it + hostage siege

I woke up late for the live viewing but no worries I made it to the swimsuit portion. Julien kept my phone busy texting me live feeds of the event. haha

I was ecstatic and flapping my hands like crazy when Ms. Philippines, Venus Raj, made it to the top 15, then to top 10 then top 5! And owning that 4th runner up spot isn't all that bad. It's such a huge leap for anyone to make it that far. Her name keeps being called at the last spot. It's such a thrilling moment. Congrats to all the beautiful ladies.

MS. MEXICO, Jimena Navarette, IS MS. UNIVERSE 2010.

On a sad note,
RIP to the 8 Hongkong victims during a hostage siege at Manila.
It is disappointing to see their response system quite unorganized but they did their best.

Ms Mexico is also a pretty lady, so I guess she deserved it! :)

I think the best term is "breakeven". We lost and we gained; although our gain is not big enough to make up for the loss. God bless the Philippines.

my deepest sympathy to the departed , i saw it on the news

but what i hate most is people who say mean stuff about the country , i think someone wrote Philippines is the worst country to visit

which i think is rude , ignorant and not so pleasant

anyway i missed out the Miss Universe show , ahhh dang !

p/s thank u for your comment in my blog , i would love to be your friend :)

With Love

Jasmine
