MIss Universe 2010

Miss Universe 2010, the 59th edition of the pageant, was held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S. last night August 23, 2010. It was hosted by Bret Michaels and Natalie Morales, Jimena Navarrete, Miss Mexico, was crowned Miss Universe 2010 by outgoing titlehoder Stefanía Fernández from Venezuela. On the other hand, Miss Philippines 2010, Maria Venus Raj, made it to be in the 4th runner-up place which I am proud of.

Miss Venus who seemed to be a crowd favorite, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, answered a question from actor/judge William Baldwin that didn't seem to really be an answer. Although it wasn't controversial, Miss Philippines 2010 left many wondering about her answer, her 22 years of mistake-less existence, and why she kept thanking everybody.

The interview segment of the Miss Universe pageant can be a points killer, as Carrie Prejean and Morgan Elizabeth Woolard can attest. But with William Baldwin's question, it seemed as if Miss Philippines 2010 was going to coast through and perhaps secure the Miss Universe crown. The crowd loved her and she was the talk of the Internet going into the final round of competition Monday. But what seems like a simple question can sometimes trip a person up.

Philippine Drama

When I woke up Monday morning, August 23, and as usual check my facebook account to know what’s new. The first thing I got into was the hostage taking in Manila.

So I checked online news for the details and courtesy of the online news from msn this is what I read:

A 12-hour hostage drama aboard a hijacked Philippine bus ended in bloodshed Monday when an angry ex-policeman demanding his job back gunned down eight Hong Kong tourists before police stormed the vehicle and a sniper killed him.

At least seven captives survived, four of whom were seen crawling out the back door of the bus after Philippine police stormed it Monday evening when the hostage-taker started shooting at the 15 Chinese tourists inside, said police Senior Superintendent Nelson Yabut.
He said the hostage-taker was killed with a sniper shot to the head after he wounded a police sharpshooter.

Police and ambulances were lined up next to the vehicle in the pouring rain after the standoff ended. Local hospitals reported seven bodies of hostages were brought in. One other hostage was hospitalized in critical condition, and five others were unharmed.

Two of the surviving hostages were wounded in serious condition and the remaining five are under observation, Hong Kong leader Donald Tsang told reporters in the Chinese territory as he expressed shock and anger at the police response.

The bloodshed rattled the Philippines and raised questions about police ability to deal with hostage-takings.

"How can I be satisfied when there were people who died?" Philippine President Benigno Aquino III told reporters late Monday. But he said the situation deteriorated rapidly from the time the hostage-taker initially showed willingness to release his hostages.
