Angelia Ong on her bashers: ‘you can’t please everyone’


121815-angelia_main.jpgOn Tonight with Boy Abunda, Angelia Ong talked about her winning Miss Earth 2015.

Angelia said, “well to be honest, Tito Boy, lahat naman ng sumasali, they really want to win, and I really wanted to win. But, my struggle kasi is reigning (winner) kasi ang Pilipinas, so medyo mas doble yung kailangan kong gawin na effort at hindi ko pwedeng sabihin na hindi ako nag doubt at some point. Pero nung nag start na talaga yung competition, doon ko talaga klineym na akin.”

Hindi ko siya naiimagine na pinapatong sa ulo ko, pero hindi ko din talaga siya ma-imagine na ipapatong sa kahit kaninong ulo - so akin siya.”

Angelia admitted that there were times when she doubted herself – “to be honest Tito, iniiyak ko talaga, kailangan ko siyang ilabas. Akala kasi ng iba dahil Filipino made ang Miss Earth at galing ako sa Pilipinas, madali for me. But ang hindi nila alam is mas doble nga ang kayod ko kasi knowing Carousel Productions they’re very fair. Pagdating ko doon, I’m on my own, and I can only tell them so much, their hands are tied because they really want it to be as fair as possible, and I respect that. I think naman, hindi ibibigay ni God yung mga challenges na ganito kung hindi ko kaya.”

For the question and answer portion of the pageant, Angelia garnered praise for her answer when asked to formulate a slogan for the next 15 years of Miss Earth, to which her response was, “we will, because we can.”

When asked how she came up with that answer, she said, “nung narinig ko po yung question Tito Boy, yun talaga unang pumasok sa isip ko. Kasi nung Miss Earth Philippines pa lang ako, it was really my slogan, it was really my campaign already. So every time I would introduce myself and tell my advocacy, I would always say, ‘all things are feasible, all things are possible. We will, because we can.’ Kaya ko siya siguro nasabi with conviction and with truth (…) kasi sinasabi ko na siya more than a hundred times siguro, and by heart alam ko talaga na yun talaga yun.”

Yung first sentence pa nga nung question, hindi ko pa masyadong naintindihan. Hindi kasi siya [ka]sing-clear sa stage,” Angelia added. This prompted the beauty queen to pay closer attention. “Kasi gusto ko talagang maintindihan yung question. I believe, as long as you answer it with sincerity, at naintindihan mo siya, kayang-kaya mo talaga.”

On handling bashers, Angelia shared, “When I won Miss Philippines Earth at inasam ko na yung korona ng Miss Earth, alam ko na na darating ako sa point na magkakaroon ako ng bashers, cause first and foremost, you can’t please anyone. So nung nanalo na ako, ang number one bashers ko ata ay mga Latina. Yung fans nila are very aggressive. They would go to my Instagram and would put, ‘fraud fraud fraud.’ Maraming masasakit na salita, pero hindi ko na lang pwedeng sabihin na hindi ako nasaktan at some point, but iniisip ko na lang na kasama talaga yun.
