Talaga? @ Nicely

REDLAN said...

Maganda si Ms Mexico! Kaso smart at maganda rin ang ating kandidata @ Ron.

REDLAN said...

Oo @ Dong. Filipino-Canadian rin siya tulad ng last year winner.

ZJ said...

I wasn't surprised na siya ang nanalo - not only that she's a beauty, smart and articulate itong si Ms. Philippines. I thought Ms. Mexico looks like Ruffa when she smiles? Ms. Tanzania could have ran away with the crown kung mas may content sana ang sagot niya! *halata bang pinanood ang buong programa?* *lol*

REDLAN said...

Oo nga @ ZJ. Pareho tayong nagpuyat. Deserving talaga naman siya.
