The answer that won Miss Philippines Catriona Gray the Miss Universe 2018 crown

Miss Philippines, Catriona Gray, was crowned 2018 Miss Universe. Gray has a following of over 1.2 million on Instagram and was expected to do well going into the competition. She is famous for walking in slow motion, which has been nicknamed the “lava walk.”

We finally have a new . Miss Philippines,
Catriona Gray was just crowned the the winner of the pageant for the year 2018.

The beautiful lady from Philippines won the title of Miss World by beating contestants from over 93 countries.

The 24-year-old Filipina-Australian became the fourth woman from her country to bring home the coveted title. Miss South Africa Demi, Leigh Nel-Peters and Miss Venezuela, Sthefany Gutiérrez rounded out the top three at the contest, which was held in Bangkok.

Becoming Miss Universe is not just about beauty, it’s also about being compassionate, intelligent and an exceptionally good human being too, and this reflected in Miss Philippines’ winning answer.

The question put to her in the final round was:

“What is the most important lesson you’ve learned in your life and how would you apply it to your time as Miss Universe?”

To which Catriona Gray replied:

“I work a lot in the slums of Tondo, Manila and the life there is poor and it’s very sad. And I have always taught myself to look for the beauty in it; to look in the beauty in the faces of the children and to be grateful. And I will bring this aspect as a Miss Universe, to see situations with a silver lining. And to assess where I could give something; where I could provide something as a spokesperson. And if I can teach people to be grateful, we can have an amazing world where negativity cannot grow and prosper, and children will have smiles on their faces.”

What a heartfelt and beautiful answer, right? We congratulate Miss Universe on her well-deserved win.

During the fashion elements of the show, Gray dazzled in the evening gown competition and sizzled during the swimsuit competition. But it takes more than looking to take home the crown.

Gray answered some tough questions, including her thoughts on legalized marijuana. She said, “I’m for it being used in a medical use but not so for recreational use because I think if people argue about what about alcohol and cigarettes, then everything is good in moderation.”

PV Sindhu won her first final to clinch the gold medal in eight attempts to wear the gold medal at the year-ending BWF World Tour Finals.

PV Sindhu had reached the final day of a tournament seven times since September, 2017 and had come up with a silver medal. On Sunday (December 16), in Guangzhou, China, that streak ended and the colour of the medal around her neck turned to yellow. With a 21-19, 21-17 win over Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara, Sindhu also became the first Indian shuttler to win gold at the year-ending tournament which pits the top-8 ranked players in the world.

Since September 17, 2017 at the Korea Open, Sindhu reached the finals of Hong Kong Open, BWF World Tour Finals, India Open, Commonwealth Games, Thailand Open, World Championships and Asian Games but came out with a silver medal each time. Question marks were raised over her mental strength to play out the gold medal match. And on Sunday, that run ended and the question marks can be put to rest.

Nation marks Constitution Day

Today marks National Constitution Day, observing the importance of the administrative document and celebrating its 20 incarnations throughout the democratic history of Thailand. 

Constitution Day in Thailand marks the date King Rama VII graciously signed the first charter into effect on December 10, 1932. The document transitioned the country’s administrative system to a democratic monarchy and paved the way for the establishment of Parliament and Cabinet. Under the first constitution, the nation’s monarch appointed the Cabinet, which was then tasked with administrating the nation and the Parliament, which in turn established legislation and kept the Cabinet in check. 

Both the Cabinet and the monarch under the initial charter were empowered to dissolve Parliament to protect the nation’s best interests and call new general elections. The charter placed the Kingdom’s monarch in a position of great respect. 

The 20th constitution, drafted when the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) assumed power in 2014, came into effect on April 6, 2017, and is considered a restart of democracy in Thailand. It paved the way for a general election to take place in 2019.

World Karate Fed­er­a­tion ac­cepts Sikh play­ers with small tur­ban, WSO ad­vo­cacy wins

2019 as the year of Guru Nanak brings cheer to the Sikh world on many fronts. From 1 Jan­u­ary 2019, The World Karate Fed­er­a­tion has ac­cepted the Sikh re­quest for ac­com­mo­da­tion of Sikh head­gear -the small tur­ban, called Patka or Das­tar for male com­peti­tors dur­ing com­pe­ti­tions.

The WKF has now an­nounced that it has ap­proved a new ver­sion of its rules which al­lows all ath­letes to wear plain black head cov­er­ings dur­ing com­pe­ti­tion for re­li­gious rea­sons. The new ver­sion of the WKF rules now read, “Com­peti­tors may use WKF ap­proved re­li­giously man­dated head-wear: A black plain fab­ric head scarf cov­er­ing the hair, but not the throat area.”

Since 2014, the World Sikh Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Canada has been work­ing with Karate Canada to ad­vo­cate for the rule change at the in­ter­na­tional level.

The WSO pol­icy of ad­vo­cacy not ag­i­ta­tion is pay­ing rich div­i­dends, not only in mul­ti­cul­tural and over­whelm­ingly tol­er­ant and in­clu­sive Canada but also across the world spelling an ex­am­ple for other Sikh or­gan­i­sa­tions to fol­low, es­pe­cially in home­land Pun­jab and the In­dian Sikh Di­as­pora.

It is note­wor­thy that in 2016, Jaikaran Singh Sanghera, a Sikh mem­ber of Karate British Co­lum­bia, was in Croa­tia to com­pete at a WKF Youth Cup tour­na­ment but was told that he could not com­pete with his patka or small tur­ban. Based on a di­rect ap­peal made by Karate Canada Pres­i­dent, Craig Vokey, and Team Canada coaches to WKF of­fi­cials at the tour­na­ment, Jai was granted an ex­emp­tion that al­lowed him to com­pete at that event.

WSO cited the sig­nif­i­cance and im­por­tance of the tur­ban in the Sikh faith as well as ac­com­mo­da­tion poli­cies in in­ter­na­tional fed­er­a­tions for foot­ball (FIFA) and bas­ket­ball (FIBA) to the WKF which were sup­ported Kirsty Dun­can, Min­is­ter of Sci­ence and Sport, Sport Canada, the Cana­dian Olympic Com­mit­tee Pres­i­dent Tri­cia Smith, Karate British Co­lum­bia, and in­di­vid­ual mem­bers of the Karate Canada.

Jaikaran Singh Sanghera was ec­sta­tic about the de­vel­op­ment and told me­dia that, “I am very pleased that we were able to cham­pion the rule change, un­der the lead­er­ship of Karate Canada, WSO and the gov­ern­ment.”

I am thank­ful to the WKF for mak­ing the sport of karate more in­clu­sive and for al­low­ing ath­letes like me to com­pete with dig­nity.”

WSO Pres­i­dent Mukb­hir Singh wel­comed the de­ci­sion of the World Karate Fed­er­a­tion which now al­lows both male and fe­male com­peti­tors to wear re­li­gious head-cov­er­ings. This is a wel­come change for the in­creas­ing num­ber of Karate play­ers world­wide.”

Tourism from India will increase markedly over the next ten years.This prediction from the head of the Association of Thai Travel Agents, Wichit Prakorpkoson. By 2028 he says he expects 10 million Indian visitors each year. About Chinese tourism, the ATTA chief say he expected the numbers to slow from previous trends but there will still be 20 million visitors from China coming to Thailand annually in ten years time.

Speaking to Thai Rath, he also called for the free visa-on-arrival scheme to be extended to after Songkran (April 13) and make it easier for tourists to visit neighboring countries.

He predicted that Chinese tourism would be back to normal by January 2019 after the downturn in Q4, 2018. He says 10.5 million visitors from China have come to Thailand this year among the 38 million total arrivals.

“The 20% growth in Chinese tourism year-on-year is no longer sustainable but I expect 11-11.5 million Chinese to come in 2019.

He says he expects a dramatic surge in Indian tourism –  1.5 million visitors for 2018. But he expects this to grow to 20% a year and be 3 million visitors annually in five years time and 10 million in ten years time.

Tourism and Sports Minister Weerasak Kowsurat revealed in the same article that requests have been made and granted for an increase in flights from India into Phuket and Don Muang airports.

He also wants to make renting vehicles easier for tourists by making temporary licences easier to get and doing away with fines levied on people renting to those without licences.
