screw the status quo. we need change and we need it now. we need not a leader who plays with words and public funds. we need not a leader whose years of service fall under the 'fiction' category. we definitely need not a leader who knows nothing. we require a leader who has conviction, who has the guts to change the seemingly unchangeable. we need... to prepare for 2007. Now.

A New Beauty Queen

Lara Precious San Agustin Quigaman
Miss International 2005

So you finally made it to the top! So you finally reached your goal. But I'm telling you, sister, things are to get pretty wonderful from now on. So just keep your head high, stay focused, maintain that healthy daily routine we've been introduced to from way back, and don't lose that sweet personality that people would really admire as they discover you better, and I'm sure people are gonna love you more. I'm so proud of you, Lara. And thank you for the good news that we've been not receiving for the longest time. Congratulations! :)

Thought of the day: It seems good news are coming from outside the country. First was Manny Pacquiao, and now, Lara. Looks like Filipinos can really shine,... individually, that is. Not as a nation till now. If only we're nurtured by a good State and taken care of by a good government. For now, we can get no real good news from our leaders. Just empty blah-blahs and a bad image.

Hope you saw the answer to a question that won her the title:
Q: "what do you say to the people of the world who have typecasted Filipinos as nannies?"

A: "I take no offence on being typecasted as a nanny. But i do take offence that the educated people of the world have somehow denigrated the true sense and meaning of what a nanny is. Let me tell you what she is. She is someone who gives more than she takes. She is someone you trust to look after the very people most precious to you - your child, the elderly, yourself. She is the one who has made a living out of caring and loving other people. So to those who have typecasted us as nannies, thank you. it is a testament to the loving and caring culture of the Filipino people; And for that, I am forever proud and grateful of my roots and culture."

That's bogus. She never said that. When she was interviewed by Pia Guanio during the special telecast of Miss International for Philippine audience, Precious said that someone had made up the answer and posted it all over the Internet. The truth is, Precious and the other candidates had only 30 seconds to answer!
