Rabiya Mateo: Her regal walk to the Miss Universe

Rabiya Mateo is a woman of aspiration. Her dream is to win Miss Universe, a beauty pageant that can change her life and promote her advocacy in life. She hopes to change her life like all the women of her age. And yes, she is here at the Miss Universe Pageant to fulfill her dream.

Winning Miss Universe is remarkable. As all candidates vow to do their best features and wish to win, Rabiya Mateo yearns to grab the title for the Miss Universe 2020. Despite the tension in Hollywood, Florida, Rabiya Mateo has to walk down the pageant runway with several alluring, gorgeous, lovely, and extraordinary women for the fulfillment of her dream.

A few Pilipinos feel disappointed in her for not using the crown during the national costume. However, they must appreciate Rabiya Mateo’s confidence and courage, and her dream to win. They must learn to realize that the Miss Universe competition is a tough contest to join – someone wins; someone loses. Regardless of the outcome of the pageant, Rabiya Mateo still deserves millions of applause and appreciation for her contribution to Miss Universe.

Additionally, millions of people think that winning is important and that every action that Rabiya Mateo does must be perfect. If Rabiya Mateo fails, people become disappointed. This appointment is odd and weird. It is because Filipinos know defeat. Filipinos know failure. If Rabiya Mateo loses her game, people feel upset. Why? The answer is simple. The Filipino people no longer adhere to their values. Filipinos today brag about themselves, and they do not know how to accept defeat. Therefore, Filipinos must realize this truth that Miss Universe is a competition.

Moreover, Rabiya Mateo’s stunning look is a sure win. As she walks on the stage for Miss Universe in Hollywood City, Florida, she attracts the judges and the Filipino crowd. Wearing the enthused Philippine flag, Rabiya Mateo proves that she can win. The national costume that she wears gives her a winning walk to the 69th Miss Universe 2020.

Finally, Rabiya Mateo is the winner. Whether she wins or not, she wins all “real” Filipino hearts. She deserves appreciation and love as she represents the whole Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

Kahulugan Spring Resort: A memory to treasure

It was May. It would be the same month as this one. As usual, my friends and I decided to have a wet picnic – to eradicate stress. We knew we liked a dry picnic because we could go camping, mountain climbing, and trekking; however, this time, we could not explore the places listed in our bucket list. It was totally different. 

Years ago, we decided to take some trips. However, we ended up going to places for fishing and mountain climbing. This time my friends told me that we should try another one. I suggested though that we should visit remote places to expand our horizons. On the other hand, only a few of my friends supported me. The majority of them decided that we would never go to some remote places. In this case, I would stick around a little bit and focus on what I would do here in Misamis Oriental – a province to treasure all my memories.

Of course, my friends wanted to support me all the way through. And yet, they became concerned about the stern quarantine protocols, such as the social distancing policies and the travel restrictions, which then barred us from going around places in the country. For me, I lost opportunities to do things. I lost all the prospects to fulfill my tasks for days, months, and even years. COVID-19 pandemic made me weak and powerless to change things. So, I would stick around just a little bit.

Moreover, my friends cherry-picked Kahulugan Spring Resort as our place of destination. At first, I was hesitant. However, something just happened when I visited the resort. I discovered something magical and spellbinding. I met the love of my life – Jade. She is fairly looking. She always smiles. Her sense of humor and wit can complement so well that I, sometimes, become speechless around her.

Jade loves Kahulugan Spring Resort. Now, I do. According to the owner of Kahulugan Spring Resort, God designs the resort; Man sculpts it; Nature landscapes it. And yes, it is true. I surely love the place because Kahulugan Spring Resort gives us a chance to see each other. Now, we are together, and we keep on visiting the place once a month to celebrate life.

Now, if you want to meet people and explore the places around you, please visit Kahulugan Spring Resort today. You can call the management of the resort for more information regarding booking and reservation. Here are the mobile numbers to call: 09177248390; 09061529768; 09989502358.

So, what are you waiting for? Visit Kahulugan Spring Resort now at Kimaya, Jasaan, Misamis Oriental. It is only 1.2 km from the national highway.
