Beauty Pageant a Platform for Self-Confidence and Social Responsibility.

The Philippines are known as one of the countries creating Beauty Queens. As we all know that Filipina has a Queen Quality, we have brains, beauty, and talents.

We mold our girls to be good models and fine ladies. And two popular beauty camps can train them. They are Aces & Queens and Kagandahang Flores. And there we call a BIG FOUR National Beauty Pageant in the Philippines that they can compete, Binibining Pilipinas, Miss Universe Philippines, Miss World Philippines, and Miss Philippines Earth.

When I was living in Singapore, one colleague asked me how come you Filipinos are fascinated with this Beauty Contest. Well here are the reasons why:

  1. This is the time that we can boost our self-confidence and be trained to be prim and proper.
  2. This is the time also that we can practice our brain for the Q&A portion and think a lot of possible questions that may ask in contest proper.
  3. This is the time also that we can show to the world rather the universe 🙂 our talent and skills, as we all know Filipinos are good singers, musicians, and artists.
  4. This is the time to mindset and actively practice the “Social Responsibility” for our nation. To be charitable in heart and mind.
  5. This is also a stepping stone for a career in show business, journalism and broadcasting, and others.

Now, I am encouraging you to support and vote for my cousin, Sam Frank, she is competing for the Miss Phillippines USA on Nov 19 at Pasadena Hilton in California USA. Here are the links that you can like and share:

‘GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS’ Stephen Curry Makes Emphatic MVP Case by Prince Simon

The Golden State Warriors faced a stiff test in the Atlanta Hawks during the NBA’s Monday night slate.

They trailed by as many as 15 points in the first half, but it was a lead Atlanta would not have for long as Stephen Curry went nuclear, breaking out of what had been a bit of shooting slump to begin the season. Curry scored 50, putting on a show against Trae Young, whom many believe is the next in line to take over the mantle as best long-range shooter in the NBA.

It was a masterful performance by Curry, as he made 50 percent of his shots overall and 9-of-19 from the 3-point line. The rest of his stat line was stuffed as well, as he pulled down seven rebounds, handed out 10 assists, swiped three steals, and even added one block in 35 minutes of play. Curry got rolling from the start, going on a 10-0 run by himself, and carried that momentum throughout the game.

The fans at Chase Center chanted ‘MVP’ throughout the night, as Curry looks well on his way to competing for the award again this season Head coach Steve Kerr was in awe of the performance. “That was just a stunning performance by Steph,” coach Steve Kerr said.”… With his performance against the Hawks, Curry became the oldest player in NBA history at 33-years old to record a 50-10 game. The previous record was held by Wilt Chamberlain, who did it at 31-years old. It was also the 10th time in his career that Curry broke the 50-point mark, and he was the third Warrior to have a 50-point, 10-assist game, joining the aforementioned Chamberlain and Rick Barry.

SQUID GAME, DO THEY WANT TO CONDEMN VIOLENCE WHILE REVELING IN IT? (by Prince Simon)

Most of us have Netflix on our mobile phones and while it’s cheering that quite so many people are curious about a project that they are watching with subtitles, little feels novel about people flocking to a project that allows them to have it both ways.

“Squid Game”, created by Hwang Dong-Hyuk, depicts a competition with some 456 entrants, in which boundless wealth is made available to whoever survives a brutal gauntlet of fatal events. The violence is at once eerily intimate and impersonal. While there is a brutal frankness to the way the competitors’ lives are cut short, the shooters are masked game employees (or, in the case of Red Light, Green Light, a robotic doll).

What we gradually learn, through the device of a detective who is broken into the system, is that they are utterly bought-in , obeying rules of their own and believing rigidly in a game they have worked to present with a certain baroque innocence. Having now seen both the harsh realities they face in the game and at home, we are force to reckon with the notion that infinitesimal odds of survival in the Squid Game might just be better than none in modern society.

But this is a starting point from which the series does little in the way of development. This series amplifies itself endlessly, raising the stakes and the level of inhumanity. (It’s opening salvo of hundreds of dead bodies, seems difficult to top, but it gets over the line in demonstrations of players’ brutality, which alternates somewhat schematically with their startling shows of kindness).

As the series runs on, it becomes clear that the Squid Game exists for many reasons, including for the harvesting of human organs form the killed and to provide amusement for a chattering class of wealthy people some of them depicted as white Westerners who bet on the results.

About the first, there seems little to say, other than that it’s impressive that the series found a way to be even more affectedly direct and unbothered about showing ways the human body can come apart. A season-closing conversation between the game’s winner and it’s architect indicates that the game was, in its essence, designed for entertainment and to see if it is possible for people to be good. (He believes that they are not, despite having seen variations of the participants exhibiting team work, selflessness and cooperation but then, he was personally betrayed by the game’s winner, so his feelings maybe a bit raw).

This is maybe the point: “Those who play the Squid Game are subject to the banalest and juvenile philosophizing of those who, because of lucky breaks in life, get to determine everyone else’s reality. But taken on literal terms that the show burned through so much life and so much fake blood in order to stage a character-based investigation of goodness, then it really is no surprise that this show has taken off.

FB, IG and YT how long will you last?

This..

If Fb will change his name according to the Verge..

Will IG follows?

Will WhatsApp follows?

Will YT follows?

Before Friendster is ok to re-connect with your long lost friends and families, upload your ‘digital picture’ so that your friends/families can see how you look like in present times. They can also chat there.  Simple means of communications and according to my classmates before, ask Jasmin she’s the ‘yellow page’ of the batch (human directory 😂).. Well thanks to Friendster, Yahoo Messenger and Chikka.com

Until, Social Media revolves and Friendster can’t sustain the fast phase of digital technologies.

Here we go now, the evolution of Facebook, they incorporated trending games like Farmville and Farmtown, added a marketing tool and FB page to become a platform for business to reach out their target markets.

And they want to be the best in digital platforms, they acquired Instagram (platform to edit our pictures according to what we want to reflect to others), acquired WhatsApp (to cater the business communication easily and link with their FB page) and Youtube as popularised by the Influencers.

Now, I am thinking, should I save and transfer my photos from FB, IG, YTC to a TB harddisk? (learning lesson from my long lost pictures in my friendster 🤣)

Should I choose the most important memories and have it print and put in a physical album again or create a photobook?

To make it graphical, in everything when we reach the peak, its time to slowdown.  And there will be another platform trying to reach that peak.

Ika nga di ba, pana panahon lang yan! Just don’t forget the lesson they teach us.
