Pia recalls memorable encounter with Leni

Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach has recalled that it was Rep. Leni Robredo of Camarines Sur who asked her the final question-and-answer during the 52nd Bb. Pilipinas beauty pageant held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City last March 15, 2015.

“Wow. Naalala ko lang it was Ms. Leni Robredo who asked me my final question in Bb Pilipinas 2015. Yung ‘Think before you click,’ “ said Wurtzbach in her tweet.

Robredo, now the leading candidate for vice president, asked Wurtzbach her thoughts on Internet censorship, during the grand coronation of the prestigious pageant.

“I think that we should be careful with what we post online, especially our thoughts and our opinions that we don’t hurt anybody. We have to be careful with what we post, especially with our bodies and our faces. So always think before you click,” Wurtzbach answered.

The Filipino-German beauty queen eventually became the country’s representative at the 2015 Miss Universe beauty pageant in December.

Nine months later, Wurtzbach was crowned 2015 Miss Universe, the country’s third winner from the Philippines, during a contest in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Asked if she voted for Robredo, the beauty queen did not answer. Robredo ran with Mar Roxas II of the Liberal Party who conceded to Mayor Rodrigo Duterte of Davao City last Tuesday.

Netizens hailed the two Filipino women for their achievements and called them real queens.
