He made a history

Winter Olympics happens every four years.  Mostly, the country that participated in this event is that country that has winter season.  I haven’t watch winter Olympics for real or in television coverage before but I heard a lot about this winter Olympic.  The sports that I like are the figure skating and speed skating.  I find these two entertaining and exciting especially the figure skating.  Watching figure skating is like watching dance sport.  My first ever favorite figure skater is Michelle Kwan from the USA.  When she performed, she really owns the stage and the audiences as well as the judges love her.

The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia is interesting.  It is because there is one contender from South East Asia.  He is Michael Christian Martinez from the Philippines, the first ever contender from tropical country.  Because of him, the country has live coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics.  Many  intrigued and surprised.  People are interested to see how he performs.  I watched him performs in the short and long program.  He did great.  Out of 30 figure skaters, he finished in 19th place.  Not bad for his debut on the ice rink.  He made a history for the country and for the South East Asia country.  I am looking forward for his appearance in the 2018 Winter Olympics.  I am pretty sure he will be one of the figure skaters to watch for.

The Beauties of the Filipina

Years had passed that the beauty of the Filipina is not being notice in the prestigious beauty pageant.  I started watching beauty pageant back when I was 12 years old.  I have research and read about different beauties that brings home the crown for the country.  Since then I am watching prestigious beauty every year and cheering for the country’s bet.  I sometimes act as one of the judges and making a list of my finalists.  This is what my sister and I used to do.  I am more entertained in the questioned and answer portion.

This year was the happiest year for the Filipino people because beauties of the Filipinas are being noticed by the judges.  First was the Miss Universe 2011 where Philippines bet Chamsey Supsup bags the 3rd runner up.  Second, is Dianne Necio was part of the 15 finalists of the recently concluded Miss International 2011 held in China.  And lastly, was the most recent ending of the Miss World 2011 beauty pageant held in London where Philippine’s best Gwendoline Ruais bags the first runner up spot.  These three lovely ladies make the whole Filipino proud of them.  This is a good sign for Filipina beauties; soon Philippines will bag the most captivated crown.

State of the Nation Address

Today is the most awaited second state of the nation address by the Philippine President.  The waiting is now over because on this day people will know the real situation of the country, the plans of the Presidents and other things concerning his duty as the President of the Philippines.  Many are still puzzled and questioned why still the country is suffering from crisis and the answers to the promises during the election time.  People are hold on to his promises that up to now they are longing for answers and action.  Those will be answered today, I hope.

The State of the Nation Address by the President is welcoming by rallies of people who are pro and against by his administration.  There are some who are dismayed and not satisfied of him as a president.  They wanted their grievances be heard that is why they are on the street.  I just wish that these rallies will be a peaceful one and people will listen to the speech of the President.

We all are longing for his action regarding the promises he made during the election period.  Let us have patience in waiting and lets us support and give him time to settle things.  We hope for the best of the country.
