(A reminder to self) You are not an instagram post with just a few likes. You are not your facebook profile with thousands of friends. You are not a long list of achievements or a thick file of failures. You are not the mama who feels worthless and unloved. You are not your big beautiful house. You are not your exotic travel photos. You are not what you own, you are not your job. You are not what you do and you are most definitely not what you have done. Do you know who you are?- You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Chosen. Forgiven. Redeemed by the blood of Jesus. A child of God. You are loved… Everything else is just extra.
Representing the Philippines, Quigaman was crowned Miss International 2005 at the Koseinenkin Hall in Tokyo, Japan on September 26, 2005. She married actor and model Marco Alcaraz, 34, in 2011 in Vancouver, Canada.
Like Quigaman, all of the SEA Games 2019 muses are crowned Filipino beauty queens. Check the list on Manila Herald.
