    Pia Wurtzbach Crowned Miss Universe Philippines

    Manila.Coconuts.co -Pia Wurtzbach shared her thoughts after winning the Miss Universe Philippines crown on her third try.

    In an interview with ABS-CBN News after she was crowned on Sunday night, Wurtzbach said she plans to make the most out of her reign, noting that “it was a long journey getting here.”

    “I’m very happy, obviously. I’m super excited. I always said that when I win, I’m going to be the busiest queen because I’m going to make the most out of the year, my reign. I was first runner-up in 2013 and I didn’t make it last year. Now, I finally did. It was a long journey getting here. I’m not going to waste this,” she said.

    “I always said to myself that after this, I’m going to have a celebratory meal, but it looks like that’s not going to happen. I have to start training as soon as possible and I’m really excited,” she added.

    BANUANG DAAN EXPRESSES GRATITUDE

    Cordaid.org -Barangay Banuang Daan wants to extend their gratitude to the Ms. Universe Foundation, since the organisation has played a big role in how they are building back better.

    After having been hit by super typhoon Haiyan, a lot of organisations (both local and international) and various government sectors have come to help the barangay.

    BD thanks Ms. U

    “So many things have changed since Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) in 2013. By change, I meant for the better. Our community has really improved since then,” Banuang Daan’s barangay captain Bienvenido Abella said.

    Housing and infrastructure projects have been underway since last year; and more proposals will be processed in the months to come—including livelihood initiatives and activities to make us more prepared for the next typhoon.

    “If only there is a way to repay all these, we’re sure to spend our whole lives trying to return the favour. I guess, the best thing that we could do is to take good care of what they have provided us,” Abella said.
