Best Gray Christmas gift
Fil-Australian model Catriona Gray gave the Philippines the perfect Christmas gift by winning the Miss Universe 2018 title in Thailand.
Her victory is definitely a silver lining for the year, especially after recent disappointing defeats by the Philippine Azkals (Suzuki Cup), Gilas Pilipinas (FIBA World Cup games), and Carlo Biado (World 9-ball billiards).
Gray showed that Filipinos can "conquer the universe" through hard work, perseverance, and by tapping their creativity, intelligence as well as culture and identity.
Kudos to Team Catriona for a well-deserved victory.
Now that she has won the much-coveted crown, we have no doubt that she will heed Spiderman's motto, "With great power comes great responsibility."
