Online bazaar peddles fake news as bizarre marketing ploy

MANILA, Philippines--E-retailer Promo Shopping Bazaar has a bizarre way of promoting its products--peddling fake contents. The website, which plugs its merchandise on its Facebook page, says it sells books online. But it looks like the shop employs a marketing strategy that is twisted. In its bid to sell its e-book Universal Beauty, supposedly authored by newly-crowned Miss Universe Catriona Gray, Promo Shopping Bazaar placed 10 ads on Facebook. In one of its sponsored contents, the online shopping startup digitally manipulated an INQUIRER.net breaking news story about Gray bagging the Miss Universe 2018 crown in a competition held in Bangkok last December 17.

ONE: Eduard Folayang plans to keep PH in limelight after Catriona Gray’s victory

Eduard Folayang has a little motivation when he stakes his crown against a very familiar foe in a packed and stellar card that ONE Championship will stage in Japan this March. "Of course, it's another chance to represent the country. Who shies away from that? Also, I don't want to spoil what Catriona Gray has begun," Folayang told the Inquirer over the phone in jest in Ilocano. Folayang was referring to Gray's victory recently in the Miss Universe pageant. But an even bigger inspiration lies closer to home as Folayang bared he is expecting another baby. The 33-year-old Team Lakay skipper is slated to defend his lightweight world championship against the very fighter he ...Keep on reading: ONE: Eduard Folayang plans to keep PH in limelight after Catriona Gray’s victory.....»»

Inspiring

The color of the day is Gray---Catriona Gray, that is. It's not even 24 hours since she won the Miss Universe pageant in Bangkok, Thailand, besting a field of over 90 contestants for the crown. I woke up way too late this morning to see the pageant, but video clips have already been uploaded on YouTube. She was poised, confident, colorful, vibrant, smart and, from her advocacies, compassionate.   Facebook has been in a very happy place. Not since Ryan Cayabyab was named national artist has my feed been this joyful. Filipino men and women of various gender identities and orientations have all been figuratively jumping up and down for joy.   But if the articles...Keep on reading: Inspiring.....»»

Catriona Gray s Miss Universe win inspires Filipina warrior Rome Trinidad

Filipina mixed martial artist Rome "The Rebel" Trinidad has a newfound inspiration in Catriona Gray, who was crowned Miss Universe 2018 last Monday, 17 December in Bangkok, Thailand.   The 24-year-old Filipina beauty queen bested 93 other candidates from all over the world, standing out for her signature "lava" catwalk, which made headlines in the news around the globe and trended on social media.   “Catriona is truly an inspiration for us women. She is a living proof that anything is possible through hard work,” Trinidad said.   A familiar face in the Philippine modelling world, Gray is also a martial artist, singer, and advocate of free education and HIV/AIDS awareness.   Touted by both casual and long-time pageant followers as a shoo-in for the crown, she represented the Philippines in the Miss World 2016 pageant but failed to bag the crown, settling for Top Five.   Two years later, Gray won the Binibining Pilipinas 2018 trinket, making her the country's delegate to Miss Universe 2018.   Gray's impact to women is undeniable as it motivates the likes of Trinidad to go the extra mile when it comes to chasing her dream.   "She didn’t give up on her dream. Failures didn’t stop her to reach for her ultimate goal. It is empowering to have a fellow Filipina like Catriona Gray," she stated.   "We belong to a totally different kind of fields, but seeing her succeed boosts my morale and inspires me to pursue my dreams just like her."   2018 has been a big year for the Philippines, especially in the world of combat sports, where six of its celebrated athletes copped gold on the international stage.   Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao claimed the WBA Welterweight World Championship, stopping Argentina's Lucas Matthysse in the seventh round last July.   Meanwhile, the Philippines established the unprecedented record of most mixed martial arts world title wins in the history of ONE Championship this 2018, courtesy of Eduard Folayang, Kevin Belingon, Geje Eustaquio, Joshua Pacio and Brandon Vera.   Trinidad, a professional model before she ventured into the mixed martial arts scene, is more motivated now than ever after witnessing how far the Philippines has gone in 2018.   She believes that hard work is in a Filipino's DNA, commending her countrymen for the tremendous amount of effort and dedication that they exerted in their respective fields.   "Seeing the Philippines excel in the worlds of boxing, mixed martial arts and beauty pageant is a big motivation," Trinidad shared.   "Our boxing hero Manny Pacquiao became a world champion again this year. In mixed martial arts, the country ended the year with five ONE World Champions. To top it off, Catriona Gray was crowned Miss Universe 2018."   Trinidad was last seen in action this past May when she took on Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol  ONE: GRIT & GLORY, yielding to the Indonesian hometown hero by way of first-round submission.   Although her 2018 did not turn out the way she wanted it to be, the nation’s banner year in combat sports and beauty pageant fuels Trinidad to strive even harder as she aims to carve her own success story next year.   "2018 proved to be a year of success for the Philippines. I am drawing inspiration from that success as I open a new chapter in 2019. Like them, I am not giving up. I will be back stronger than ever,” she vowed......»»

Margie Moran praises Catriona Gray’s eloquence

MANILA, Philippines --- Many complimented Catriona Gray's winning answer which led her to bring home the Miss Universe crown on Monday and one of them was Miss Universe 1973 Margie Moran.   "With her, it's a skill, it's a gift because you can be intelligent, but not articulate," Moran said in an interview over ANC's "Headstart."   "I think she was well prepared. She was enthusiastic; whatever she answered, she answered it well and complete. She prepared for it," she added.   Moran thought Gray had a "hard time because there were so many beautiful women and they spoke well."   However, it was the last question that made Gray stand out: "The ...Keep on reading: Margie Moran praises Catriona Gray’s eloquence.....»»
