Ohayo, Nippon!


I was not able to watch it live but the e-news says Lotis, i mean, Japan’s Riyo Mori wins the Miss Universe 2007 :-). The last time Japan won the pageant was in 1959 when Akiko Kojima became the first Miss Universe from Asia. The winner is Asian. Great. That’s good news beside the bad one that Japan minister hangs self amid scandals on Monday, hours before he was to face questioning in parliament. He became the first serving Cabinet member to kill himself since World War II. Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the industrialized world. More than 32,000 people took their own lives in 2004. The country also has a deep-rooted tradition of ritual suicide, which was considered a way to restore one's honor or take responsibility for failings in feudal Japan. Life is beautiful and will be just a waste if ended that way. As always, what we believe on makes a very big inclination on our bearing in the course of our precious life. And as what was commented on her, she’s an amazing winner, a winner indeed, that’s once in a lifetime achievement. Some say it’s vanity. Just the cause they have been doing for the poor people from it is what that counts!

i can see the reasoning too, and as women came to be viewed as objects there.. so u mean no miss england there? that one in mexico they said there were troubles and protest and one backed out. well just one of the plays in the stage which in the end will be kind of vanity.
