Tribute to Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach of the Philippines (Watch)

There’s probably better tributes, existing or still to be made, about Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach. Here’s one we came across in facebook.

When we stumbled on the photo of Samantha Isabel Coronado (@followyouroad) — who happens to be a writer, entrepreneur, and life enthusiast — we immediately noticed the caption, “Because it’s #WomenMonth.” March is, of course, women’s month, and March 8, Women’s Day. Perhaps Samantha (or Isabel?) is trying to make a statement that women can reach new heights. Maybe. Let’s hear from her she drops by VisitPinas.  And perhaps while we’re at it, why don’t we trek to Norzagaray, Bulacan, where this rock formation is located, and experience how it feels to be up there.
