The very smart answer of newly-crowned Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental, Ms Cinderella Faye Obeñita, went viral this morning after this paper posted the video on its Facebook page.
The young lass, who represented Cagayan de Oro in the said very prestigious beauty tilt, has chosen Michael Cinco, a very famous Filipino couturer based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
VIRAL POST. This is an extract of the MDNN FB Page which goes viral this morning after several hours of posting.
Michael Cinco, who was only online to give his question, asked Cinderella this very timely question: “How important are luxury items like bags, clothes, jewelry for a woman when the national economy is down and struggling?”
And it was answered by Cinderella with strong conviction by saying “In life, we always find ourselves in a crossroad of choices. Women always have a choice whether to prioritize luxury items, but while we are facing a pandemic, and also they have a choice to embrace a concept of a new beautiful, which is responsive to the needs of the time, adaptive to the change of times and I think I would choose to be that woman who understands the problems of the Philippines, the problems of my community, so that we would be able to uplift each other and I would be that kind of woman who will comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”
The MDNN FB post have reached to 979,589 Filipinos, with 226,956 total engagements as of press time. It also has 7.6k shares. Over 17,000 people liked and loved the post in just several hours after posting.
