DAKONG uyon si Miss Universe 1999 first runner-up Miriam Quiambao sa sugyot nga magdala og interpreter ang mga Pinay beauty queen candidates pag may international competition.

"When you're in that situation, you prefer to let go of whatever possibilities that might hinder your being at your most comfortable state. Using a translator during Q and A would be the best option," ni Miriam sa "Headstart" sa ANC.

Post your reaction to the Manila hostage crisis

Ni Miriam, ang pangutana nga gihatag kang Miss Universe 2010 4th runner-up Venus Raj lisod kaayo.

"Even the smartest [person] has a challenge in answering that kind of question. Because being in front of a public, it's very challenging to admit a mistake that you've made," say sa beauty queen.

Dugang ni Miriam nga angay'ng ma-proud ang mga Pinoy kang Venus tungod na-represent niini ang nasud, luyo sa mga challenges nga iyang naagian sa wala pa ang kompetisyon.

Alang kang Miriam, si Venus mihatag og dugang kadasig sa nasud hilabi na nga bag-uhay ra sab nahitabo ang hostage crisis atol sa Ms. Universe 2010 competition, Lunes.

"You know what, my concern about a lot of us Filipinos, and sometimes I admit that I do the same, that there's a tendency for us to look at the glass half empty rather than half full. We should really be grateful and look at the glass half full," depensa sa beauty queen.
