Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray pays courtesy call to President Rodrigo Duterte before flying to New York to assume her official functions as Miss Universe.


Nagbigay-respeto ang bagong-hirang na Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray kay Presidente Rodrigo Duterte sa pamamagitan ng isang courtesy call kagabi, December 20, sa Villamor Air Base, Pasay City.

Naganap ito ilang oras bago lumipad patungong New York ang beauty queen upang gampanan ang kanyang official duties and functions bilang Miss Universe.

Sa New York nakabase ang headquarters ng Miss Universe organization.

Halos tumagal ng isang oras ang meeting nina Catriona at Presidente Duterte, at makikita sa mga larawan ng dalawa na masaya ang kinahihinatnan ng pulong.

Si Salvador Panelo, presidential spokesman at chief presidential legal counsel, ang nagbahagi ng mga kuha nina Presidente Duterte at Catriona.

Paglalarawan ni Panelo sa pag-uusap ng pangulo at Miss Universe 2018 titlist:

“They are just exchanging pleasantries. He thanked her for bringing the crown. He said everybody is euphoric about her win.

“He [Duterte] told her she made every Filipino proud.

"He told her that [his partner] Honeylet [Avanceña] wanted to go with him to meet her but had to stay in Davao to attend to her daughter Kitty [Duterte].”

Ang pag-uwi dito ni Catriona ay hindi pa bahagi ng kanyang official homecoming.

Kinailangan lang niyang dumalo sa isang private function na inorganisa ng isang sponsor ng Miss Universe, bago pa man koronahan ang Miss Universe 2018 sa Thailand.

Tinatayang sa Enero o Pebrero pa ang grand homecoming ni Catriona sa bansa bilang Miss Universe 2018, at dito inaasahang magkakaroon ng bonggang pagsalubong sa kanya.

Lalo pa't si Catriona ang nag-uwi ng ikaapat na Miss Universe crown, matapos ang reign ni Pia Wurtzbach noong 2015, Margie Moran in 1973, and Gloria Diaz in 1969.

Sabi sa hiwalay na pahayag ng Palasyo: “Ms. Gray truly made the entire Philippines proud when she sashayed on the global stage and showcased the genuine qualities defining a Filipina beauty: confidence, grace, intelligence and strength in the face of tough challenges.

“Ms. Gray’s triumph sets the bar high in empowering more Filipino women to believe in themselves and to fight for their own place in the universe. We salute and admire her victory.”
