The Beautiful Garrido

Did you know that the english translation of the word GARRIDO literally means handsome, neat and graceful? I am not pulling your leg or whatsoever, just click the link and you will understand what I mean. Well, not only am I really handsome but my name alone is enough to describe the Real Mhel Garrido!

On the other side of the world is another Garrido who has recently made waves in the Ms. Earth beauty pageant that she became one of the favorites of pageant. She is set to compete tonight and I would have gone to Clark to watch but unfortunately I am quite sad coz something came along. Here are some excerpts of some news I got from GLAM which is a part of the OPMB site.

The recent Laurentian University graduate – she earned a degree in biochemistry, with honours – was awarded $1,000 by Mayor Edward S. Hagedorn and first lady Ellen M. Hagedorn for winning the “Miss Earth Puerto Princesa” title during the Swimsuit Competition held at the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park (PPSRNP) last week.

The PPSRNP, home to the world’s longest navigable underground river, was this year’s Miss Earth venue for the swimsuit parade and was sponsored by the city government in a bid to further promote its chances to be included in the search for the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

Garrido, a statuesque Second Degree Black Belt, is donating her prize money to a certain “Mary Joy,” a little girl she met in Las Pinas in Metro Manila. Mary requires medical help, and Garrido was moved by the youngster’s plight. Among the 30 Miss Earth candidates that visited the city, Garrido instantly became a crowd and judges’ favourite because of her “extraordinary appeal and charm.”

Mayor Hagedorn was impressed by Garrido’s plans for her prize purse, but her enthusiastic support for the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring a spectacular limestone karst landscape and a subterranean river that flows directly into the sea, earned the Canadian daughter of Portuguese immigrants many kudos in the island nation.

Well if there is a handsome Garrido in the Philippines then there is a beautiful Garrido from another part of the Globe. Because of that I therefore conclude that the Spanish word GARRIDO really means handsome and beautiful and it is undisputed!
