Filipinos Celebrate Rachel Peters’ Miss Universe Victory!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Filipinos were ecstatic when they heard the news that Ms. Peters  (Rachel) of the Philippines won the Miss Universe crown.

Motorists started honking their horns.  Office workers were high-fiving each other and patrons at karaoke bars began singing the oldie Pinoy song, “Ikaw ang Miss Universe ng Buhay Ko.”

But alas, it was all short-lived.  Many folks misread the texts they got from their friends and family.

Little did they know at first that the Ms. Peters who won the crown was South Africa’s Demi-Leigh Peters, not Rachel.

Well, we can’t win all the time, can we?
