Perhaps, the country's greatest achievement this year in the field of beauty pageants was when the Philippines finally won it's third Miss Universe crown after 42 years courtesy of Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach who had a very unforgettable and dramatic crowning moment in the history of pageantry.
Aside from the crowns itself, it is also worth mentioning that all of the Filipino delegates this year were able to place in the major and even in the second-tier international beauty pageants. Christi Lyn McGarry is Miss Intercontinental 2015 First Runner-Up, Parul Shah is Miss Grand International 2015 Third Runner-Up, Hillarie Parungao and Janicel Lubina are both Top 10 Finalists in Miss World and Miss International 2015 with Rogelie Catacutan in Miss Supranational 2015 Top 20 Semi-finalist.
With all the unparalleled achievements we have had, we couldn't just thank God enough. The immense success that we have attained in the international pageantry is a living proof that we Filipinos can unite as one and be successful in whatever challenges life can throw at us. May the good Lord will continually bless and prosper the Philippines in 2016 as well as in the coming years ahead. Mabuhay and a Happy, Prosperous New Year to everyone!
It is not luck..it is God's favor.
From the fullness of His Grace, we have all received one blessing after another. John 1:16
