The Philippine bet for Ms. Universe, Maria Venus Raj, got into the top 5 of the competition. She finished as 4th runner up. I honestly do not see her as one who would fit the conventional notion of Filipina beauty. She has this very… different.. kind of pretty. I can’t really point it out but there’s something that radiates from within as well. I think it’s her confidence that makes her so appealing.
Congratulations, Venus Raj, you are the Universe’s 5th most beautiful woman.
This is a breath of fresh air given the very serious mood that surrounded the country yesterday. This deserves a little dance.
