There has been a debate about whether Catriona Gray should be considered as Miss Australia or Miss Philippines.
In an interview with the American show Build Series, she set the record straight as some Australians have been claiming her as their own after she won the Miss Universe 2018 beauty pageant.
“I am Miss Philippines,” she stated.
“I really feel like I’m a Miss Philippines. I feel like a Filipina, a Filipino woman. It’s just so happens that when I was growing up, I was very much of an Australian. And I think you can be both because I did grow up with those two sides of the world. I thought it was funny that there was this war, like, ‘No, she’s ours, she’s practically Miss Australia.’ But I am a Miss Philippines.”
Despite the arguments, she added that she actually doesn’t mind Australia’s happiness upon her win.
“I can’t blame them for being excited, from really feeling the high spirits of the season, too. So we’ll let them have that.”

Miss Universe 2018 is currently in New York City, attending media interviews and appearing in several television shows in America.
The James Beard award-winning television personality and chef Andrew Zimmern is a big fan of goat meat, so he can’t understand why his fellow Americans are unaware of the benefits that this meat has to offer.
Goat accounts for about 6 percent of red meat consumption worldwide, with the annual per capita consumption for goat weighing in at 1.7 pounds. Sudan holds the highest level of goat meat consumption, wherein 8.6 pounds of goat meat is consumed by a person annually, while the industrialized country that has the biggest appetite for goat is China.
So why is America not so open about goat meat?
According to Zimmerman, “Most people believe goat is a tough, barnyard meat that is somehow less desirable than pork, beef or lamb. I just don’t get it.”
“I’ve had superb goat curries in the Caribbean, roast baby goats with chile vinegar and onions in Venezuela, spicy wok-tossed goat and lemongrass in Vietnam, elegant Michelin-starred plated goat rib and loin plates in Europe, goat head soup in Argentina, raw goat in Ethiopia, goat with lemons and chiles in Cypress and goat cooked with yogurt and flatbread in the Levant.”
When it comes to the function of goat, James Beard award-winning chef-owner of New York City’s Blue Hill and Westchester restaurant and education center Blue Hill at Stone Barns, and the author of The Third Plate, Dan Barber described it as “remarkable”.
“We have goats at Blue Hill Farm, my family’s farm in the Berkshires, and I’m always amazed at the role they play in the farm’s ecology.
“After the pigs scavenge through the woods, the goats come in and clear away brush and stomp down grass. Goats will eat absolutely everything. They’re like little lawn mowers.”
When it comes to goat meat, it only contains 72 percent of the saturated fat in chicken and only 16 percent of the saturated fat in beef. It can also be kosher and halal.
Can’t get enough of the first part of the 5 Obvious Ironies in the World? Don’t worry because we’ll now complete the list of the most fascinating ironies in the world. Indeed, the world is odd. But these contradictions make our planet interesting
1.) African and North American wilderness – People often associate wilderness with Africa due to its safaris and its huge land area.
However, North America has a higher percentage of wilderness than Africa. Close to 40 percent of North America’s territories fall under this classification due largely to the almost 80 percent of Canada’s uninhabited areas.
Meanwhile, Africa’s wilderness is just close to 30 percent but its rainforests contain nearly half of known animal and plant species in the world. What’s scary though is the deforestation rate in Africa is faster than anywhere in the world.
