Ms. International 2005

Precious Lara Quigaman The name Precious Lara Quigaman continuously blossoms over the Internet since the night she won her title Ms. International 2005. Even though there are a lot who object on her winning the title, but for her fellow Filipinos, wherever they may be, they are all proud of her in heart and mind. Although I failed to see her in Ms. International 2005 Pageant due to lack of time, as I read the news and some other news blogs, I was very pleased of her for one could not deny that she could both face the world with her graceful beauty as well as intelligently defend herself and voice out her opinion freely without hesitation.

At the night of the pageant, when she was asked one of the best question, she answered full-heartedly…

Question: what do you say to the people of the world who have typecasted Filipinos as nannies?

Precious Lara Quigaman’s answer: I take no offense on being typecast as a nanny. But I do take offense that the educated people of the world have somehow denigrated the true sense and meaning of what a nanny is. Let me tell you what she is. She is someone who gives more than she takes. She is someone you trust to look after the very people most precious to you – your child, the elderly, yourself. She is the one who has made a living out of caring and loving other people. So to those who have typecast us as nannies, thank you. It is a stament to the loving and caring culture of the Filipino people. And for that, I am forever proud and grateful of my roots and culture.
