The ballroom was such a big place. I didn’t see Angel Rosales, Leah Caringal, Chit Juan, Boots Garcia, etc.
I just stayed with the Filipino delegates from the Department of Agriculture.

A Filipina delegate told me some women participants have super big boobsies. OO nga, some women have extraordinarily huge frontage. Palibhasa tayong Filipino ay pipit na pipit kaya madali nating napapansin yung mga sobra sobra ang future (hinaharap).
