A Cup O' Kapeng Barako


S he was the toast of the town.


Did y'all see on TV the 2011 Miss Universe Pageant that was held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, this Monday?  And, did y'all see Miss Supsup, our own Miss Philippines?  She was the toast of the town. Men, young and old and women and lesbians, too, I am sure, ogled her.


Me? I not only ogled her. I drooled over her. 


She's beautiful!  She's gorgeous!  Mestisahin!  At ang galing kumendeng-kendeng.  I mean, when she walks, she really knows how to roll those hips. And when she stands still to strike a pose: Oh my!  That picture lingers in one's mind.  She is provocative. She has a truly terrific, tantalizing body.


She exudes sex. She inspires desire. Even her name, Supsup, made me delirious with desire, y'all know what I mean? Yes, Miss Supsup gave me all kinds of delirious and delicious fantasies, of desire. Surely, any DOM, worth his salt, would turn delirious and DROOL over her, with farty, wanton, desire.


She's a 10 in her physical beauty.


I closely examined her and wished I could be her gynecologist. The only small, little imperfection that I noticed she had, was her nose. It was sculpted to perfection. Belo did too good of a job. But that's a minute detail of imperfection, for the rest of her of her body, was perfection itself.


In Internet voting, she had the most votes among those 88 beauties from all over the world. Can you imagine that? She had a lot of fans, world-wide.


And, the judges, I think, knew how to pick the most beautiful from among these bevies of international beauties. Miss Supsup was among the five finalists, as we all know.


She has brains, too, from what I heard. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of the Philippines, the Motherland's premier university, where many of the prominent leaders and brilliant lawyers and highly-skilled professionals of the land, graduated from. She graduated with an architectural degree and when she took the Architectural Board Exams, she topped it!


Beauty ... and brains, indeed.


The judges, that included our own Miss Leah Salonga, a beauty herself, and one of Broadway's Tony Award award-winning stage actresses (she won the award for playing the leading role in Miss Saigon) knew indeed how to pick the loveliest and the most beautiful young women in the universe, the cream of the crop, so to speak, from among these bevies of beauties.


As we all know by now, five stood out: Miss Brazil, Miss China, Miss Angola, Miss Ukraine ... and Miss Supsup.  BTW, before these five finalists were announced, my wife picked out that Miss Angola, Miss Ukraine and Miss China would be among the five and PREDICTED that Miss Angola would win the crown.  Well, I suppose, my wife could judge beauty, too, in women.


She said Miss Angola has got that classic, statuesque, winsome, wholesome look, whereas, Miss Supsup has got that beauty that can get in line along with the beauties of TFC's song and dance variety show "ASAP Rocks," such as Bea Alonzo, Anne Curtis, Kim Chiu and the rest of the brood. 


I remained a faithful "drooler" of Miss Supsup.  I wished for her to win the crown.


THE Q & A PORTION OF THE PAGEANT: Then ... SUSPENSE, the real test came -- the ultimate test, the question and answer part of the pageant that would show if brain and beauty truly exist in any of this lovely five.  The one who could project to the judges that mixed quality of brain and beauty would be crowned Miss Universe that evening,


I waited with bated breadth for the question that will be asked Miss Supsup.  I didn't pay too much attention to the questions and answers of the other finalists. 


Then ... I sat up and literally ran close to the television screen, when "Judge" Vivica A. Fox asked Miss Supsup if she would "change her religion to marry the person she loved."  I think it was a provocative question. It required a little bit of thought.


Miss Supsup answered: "If I had to change my religious beliefs, I would not marry the person that I loved because the first person that I love is God who created me and I have my faith and my principles and this is what makes me who I am."


Then ... she added, "And if that person loves me, he should love my God too."


JosMaryusep! I honestly thought she had brains, having graduated magna cum laude from UP and topping the board Architectural board exams.


What does she mean by "he should love my God, too?"  How many Gods do we have up there in heaven?  THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.  My God.  Your God.  Other people's God. The Christian God, the Jewish God and the Muslim God IS ONLY one God.  Perhaps, we worship differently, but we are worshipping the same God.  Perhaps, God's name differ in different beliefs and religion and our rituals in worshipping God are different ...


But it's the same God!


There's no such thing as "my God," or "your God" or "other people's God."  To believe that is dumb, I think, and the height of ignorance ... of God!


I really think it was a MAJOR-MAJOR disaster for Miss Supsup to answer the way she answered.  It was a shallow, closed-minded answer. She has no depth of character.  She should have said this, in essence: "There's only one God. And those who believe in God, worship this God in many different ways. In whatever way, this man who I love, would worship God, I would respect that ..."  And so forth and so on.


A nd, she should have taken her time in answering the question, gathering her thoughts first to formulate her answer. An answer that would be appealing to all people of this universe. It's the Miss Universe crown she's trying to win, after all. 


But she spat it out quickly. Like ... this is my answer and this is it.  Like ... she was telling the world or any man who would want to marry her: "My way, or the highway. My God ... or no nokee for you, Buster. And that before you can smell and lick the goodies, you must pray first before "my God" because he's the one I love first. He created me, blah, blah, blah...."


And, if I were that man, I would have lost already all my DESIRE and love for her.


Now, that Miss Supsup only took third place, just like Miss Major-Major in last year's pageant, the Internet, Twitter, Facebook and all, and every Philippine talk shows and news shows came ablaze with fire and brimstone comments. 


Many are saying "she deserved to win." Yakity-yak. She gave a "wonderful answer being both true to her culture and herself." Yakity-yak. Even OPRAH said, "What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to rethink of her answer, as she had no interpreter to break the ice ... she answered straight to the point."  Yakity-yak.


Philippine Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago said in the halls of Philippine Congress that she "will file a protest." Yak-yak  Another comment made on Twitter was: "Dapat siya nga ang nanalo.  Si Miss Supsup lang ang marunong magsalita ng Inglis...."  Hala, yak-yak.


She has become the talk of the town.  JJ
