Catriona Gray :: The Miss Universe 2018 Chronicles (The Birthday Girl)

Catriona Elisa Magnayon Gray was born on January 6, 1994 in Cairns, Queensland, Australia.

Twenty four years later, just days before her 25th birthday, she was crowned as the new Miss Universe. And just one day before the start of fulfilling her duties as the new Miss Universe, she celebrated her birthday by watching the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen (when a friend gifted her with a front row ticket), food trip and going to Hillsong.

Her friends in both the Philippines and the United States also celebrated her special day with her in their own special way.

Just before the day ends, the Miss Universe Organization announced in social media that Catriona will start her NYC Media Tour on the following day, January 7. Catriona also mentioned this in her own Instagram: "Tomorrow my @missuniverse duties officially start with the beginning of media week!".

For Catriona, being the new Miss Universe might have not been sinking in yet. But she is a well-loved Miss Universe not only in the Philippines but in the whole world. Proof? She just reached 4M Instagram followers, from barely 1M before the pageant, on her birthday.

Catriona is the 4th Filipina Miss Universe.

Going Vegan

So, I’ve been contemplating on this for a while. And I actually still am. I’d really want to try if I could do it. But I want to start it when I’m really ready. Earlier today, I went to a grocery store and I was considering vegan products. I was checking on the ingredients to know if they are vegan. I’ve bought some vegan products but still had non-vegan ones. I guess these are my baby steps. I’d probably try it for a month. And then see how it goes. I’m pretty positive about this though. So, wish me luck. And if you are vegan, please please please, I’d really like to hear from you.

I'm Back!

Hello fellow bloggers! I know! It's been a while. It just so happened that I was searching for an old document in my laptop and came across old freestyle blogs that I wrote in notepad some years ago. I might post them here soon. So, stay tuned. :)
