Best Miss Universe reaction: Bed Manila
Posted on

Remember when Venus Raj made it as a Miss Universe finalist in 2010, and this reaction video of the gay designers’ sleepover became viral?

This year, the pageant was held in Russia at 2 AM Manila time. Our cable was down and the hubby was sleeping anyway (can’t make noise). Luckily I found a very clear livestream in Lithuanian.
For the last couple of days, Manila felt heavy and gloomy, even though we didn’t feel the full effect of Typhoon Yolanda. It was generally a depressing day. So at 2 AM many of us stayed up to watch the pageant, in hope that a Philippine victory would lift our morale.
As I watched in bed under the sheets, with only a laptop and headphones, many other Filipinos got together for a Miss Universe viewing party.
Now watch as the audience at BED—Manila’s premiere gay club, known for their Madonnathons, Kylie and Britney nights—made a collective sigh when Ariella Arida was announced the last finalist in Miss Universe 2013.

Beauty pageants. More fun in the Philippines!
Miss Philippines won 3rd runner up and that’s not a bad thing. Had she won the crown, you can imagine an earthquake of 7.7 with BED as epicenter. And that would take the focus off two more important things: Yolanda victims and their rehab, and the trial of Public Enemy Number One: Ms. Napoles.

What happened in Tacloban: the aftermath
Posted on

My driver’s daughter was in Tacloban yesterday during Typhoon Yolanda. He hasn’t heard from his son yet and I don’t know what to say or how to help him, since lines are down and physically going there now isn’t such a great idea.
Our cable TV is down and I’ve been able to watch snippets of news online.
Times like these, I find it hard to function normally.
Ted Failon tells how bad it really was.

Google has a Person Finder for Yolanda. I hope people with Internet get to use it to help others find loved ones.
Here’s the link.

UPDATE: They found my driver’s daughter and she’s OK! And thank God the cable is back on!
