– It’s always good to be back home. Definitely the Philippines.

3. You’ve been participating in beauty pageants for many years, in which pageant did you receive your first win and how old were you?
– The first pageant I joined was in 2013 for the national competition in the Philippines. I didn’t win that year but placed as the 1st runner up.  For my first time participating, I think that’s pretty good! It was good practice for the 2015 Miss Universe competition.

4. As cooking is one of your favorite hobbies, what is your favorite dish to prepare?
– I enjoy baking! My favorite recipe to make is red velvet anything! Also because it’s my favorite to eat too. Haha.

5. What is your guilty pleasure TV Show?
– I don’t watch a lot of TV which is ironic because I am in front of the camera often. That said, I do enjoy a little Family Guy and Archer here and there.

6. If you could have any animal as a pet, what would you choose?
 – I have a long coat, black and white Chihuahua named Prada. She’s very friendly and she never barks at people. She is very sweet like her mommy.

7. As acting is a passion of yours, what actor or actress would you love to co-star with?
– I enjoy working with anyone I can learn something from.

8. As Miss Universe 2015, you have met plenty of celebrities, did you get star struck meeting any of them?
– For the first few months I was star struck with almost everyone I met. Living in New York City for a year and making celebrity appearances has made me more comfortable being in the spotlight. I feel very blessed.

9. You always look amazing in all of your photos, both professional and on social media. Any tips you have learned to take a good a selfie?
– Lighting is your best friend. The right lighting will do wonders to your selfie. Not even a filter can beat good lighting.

10. For the past year you have been living in NYC, how much of an adjustment was it from living in the Philippines?
– I live in the capital of the Philippines so I am used to the city life. I love the fast paced lifestyle of New York and I adapted to it quite easily.

11.What will you miss the most about living in New York?
 – The vibe. Just the feeling of being in New York is incomparable. It really is a city that never sleeps. I love it!

12. Filipino, English and German are three languages you speak, are there any more you would like to learn?
– Mandarin! It is the language of the future. I’d love to learn it.

13. How excited are you to be able to crown the future Miss Universe 2016 in your home country? What piece of advice would you give her?
 – It’s a great way to end my reign! My advice for her – love your job. Don’t ever question your destiny.

14. Any advice for all of the women participating in Miss Universe 2016?
– The competition is a journey. It’s not the beginning or the end of your personal and professional goals. That goes the same for the winner too. Being a part of Miss Universe is an experience and leaves you with a lifetime of memories.

15. The past year has been full of traveling and scheduled appearances, what are you looking forward to in your time off once Miss Universe 2016 is crowned?
– I have missed seeing my family and friends more regularly.  It will be great to catch up with them again, but I know I’ll be back to work right away which I don’t mind at all.

16. If you could give girls aspiring to be Miss Universe one day, a piece of advice what would it be?
– Be careful what you wish for because dreams do come true!

17. This once and a lifetime experience is something you will remember forever, what has been your favorite part?
– Being able to share my story to other people. It was a long journey finally having the title of Miss Universe. I hope I have inspired people to continue fighting for their dreams.

18. What is your inspiration for doing your best each and every day?
– My family. I look at them and I’m reminded on why I do what I do. Because I want to continue to provide and help them as best as I can. I can’t help it. Filipinos are very family oriented.

19. We recently released a new game Miss Universe ® Asian Adventures. What was your favorite part about working on this project with us at High 5 Games?
– I am excited that I have the opportunity to be the star in the game! I can’t wait to play it and share with all my friends.

20. There are 5 destinations featured in Miss Universe ® Asian Adventures; besides your home country of the Philippines, have you been to the remaining four, Japan, China, Hong Kong, and Thailand, in person?
– I have. I think that’s why I was able to embrace the characters and destinations with ease because I’ve visited them myself before.

December Solstice Factoids!

h5c_factoids_decembersolstice_blogpostHappy December Solstice!

Did you know that the December Solstice represents two different things depending on what hemisphere you’re located in! In the Northern Hemisphere it is known as the Winter Solstice, while in the Southern Hemisphere it is known as the Summer Solstice!

In the Northern Hemisphere, the Winter Solstice represents the first day of winter and the shortest day of the year. While in the Southern Hemisphere, the Summer Solstice represents the first day of summer and the longest day of the year! This is because the equinoxes and solstices are opposite on the opposite sides of the planet! How cool is that!
Here are some more interesting facts about the December Solstice:

1. The sun on the December Solstice shines directly over the Tropic of Capricorn (latitude 23° 30′ South) in the Southern Hemisphere.

2. The December Solstice can occur from the dates of December 20-December 23, however falling on the 20th or the 23rd day of the month is extremely rare.

3. The last time the December Solstice fell on December 23rd was in the year 1903 and it will not happen again until the year 2303!

4. The term solstice comes from the Latin word solstitium, meaning ‘the Sun stands still’. During the December Solstice, the Sun reaches its most southern position as seen from Earth and appears to stand still at the Tropic of Capricorn and then reverses its direction.

5. People tend to say that during the Winter Solstice the Earth is furthest from the Sun, however this is a MYTH! During the Winter Solstice, the Northern Hemisphere is actually closest to the sun!

So what do you think? Are you excited for the December Solstice to mark either the first day of winter or the first day of summer depending on your geographic location? Comment in the conversation bubble located on the top right corner of your screen and let us know!

h5c_h5ggivesback_wallpost

While we are all very lucky to be able to give and receive this holiday, there are some who aren’t as fortunate. Around the office we decided that the December holiday season is the perfect time to give back.

This year, High 5 Games is honored to have partnered with Volunteers of America – Greater New York region to provide children with families in shelters and preschool children with developmental delays in the Bronx with holiday gifts. High 5 Games employees stepped up to the plate and choose one or more child to shop for. Employees were given a list from the children of what they may want for the holidays. Our employees went above and beyond this holiday season and provided them with gifts they’ll remember for a lifetime.

Each holiday season, Volunteers of America, holds several drives to make the holidays special for the people they serve. To help Volunteers of America make the holidays special for those children, High 5 Games was able to present 60 gifts collected through our office Holiday Gift Campaign.
