"Buwisit na buwisit ako doon eh. Nasayang 'yung pagkakataon, 'yun na sana, kahit di siya nanalo, at least narinig 'yung Filipino sa buong mundo. Hindi pa naririnig eh,” he explained.

(I was very annoyed by that. The opportunity was wasted. Even if she did not win, she could have at least made the whole world hear the Filipino language. It has not been heard yet.)
