Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach Crowns as Miss Universe 2015

Miss Universe 2015 is Miss Philippines.

Every Filipino is happy and proud of Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach for being crowned as Miss Universe 2015.

Initially, Miss Universe host, Steve Harvey, mistakenly announces Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo, as this year's winner.

More from the Netizens...

Miss Universe 2015 (Miss Philippines): I had conflicting emotions when the mistake happened: joy when I was told I was indeed the winner and not first runner-up, concern for Colombia contestant Ariadna Gutierrez Aravelo, who had previously been mistakenly crowned, and confusion at the whole situation.

The video that says it all... 

Congrats, Ms. Pia! Cheers!

What the 'Dumagats' Have Taught Me - I Learned Something from Them I'd Never Forget

When I joined the clergy, army, medical workers, and other volunteers in a mission to help and serve the indigenous people on Monday, December 14, I realized a lot of things about life and am sharing most of them with you...
The Dumagats make a cheerful ‘toast’ as they enjoy their glasses of milk.

1. Appreciate life. Life is always at its best - no matter how tough it may be.

2. Always be grateful. Saying thank you is NEVER hard and a challenge to them.

3. Be contented and happy with what you have. Contentment is such a big word. 

4. Recognize and respect leadership. Their leader matters and so as his words and decisions.

5. Be self-less. Think of your fellows. Period.

Fr. Nap Baltazar hands over some school bags and clothes to the Dumagat children.
I also featured this experience at CBCP NewsSharing Kindness to the ‘Dumagats’ of Bulacan.
