A Queen Wannabe

April 4, I posted this on my Facebook wall.

Obviously, it carried a serious tone which earned me πŸ‘‘s, ❀️‘s and a comment from a dear friend/high school classmate who happened to be a beauty pageant connoisseur based in Mississipi, USA.

A reunion with Ray in May 2015 after more than two decades
Unknown to my likers and commenters, there was a substory to it and my student gamely played along with me.

What an effortless win of a crown it was! Hahaha…😜πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‚πŸ˜†And I had Miss San Beda 2017, Lance Daryll Makalintal, to thank for!
When two of her classmates, Sophiya Faith Maranan and Mary-Joy Silva, and she had to do a photo shoot in our classroom for their “professional” magazine project in my class, I gave in to my impulse. πŸ˜‚
It was a once-in-a-lifetime chance of being a β€œqueen” even in a jiffy!Β 
Yes, crowns are not made for me. Never in my wildest dream to subject myself to ogling eyes and be judged whether I got what it takes to be a beauty title holder.Β To add, I am a believer of Antoine de Saint-ExupΓ©ry’s wisdom which he expressed in “The Little Prince”:

“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched; they are felt with the heart.”

    1. Wow, Josie! You are indeed my top one commenter. Thank you for always seeing the good side in me.

      I am blushing from all these remarks. 😽

      Take care always and let US stay strong and happy despite the trials.
