“Wish granted!”

The city of Manila on Monday set up free livestreaming of the Miss Universe coronation night for those lining up for COVID-19 vaccines in Eulogio “Amang” Rodriguez Institute of Science and Technology, Manila.

“Request ng vaccinators sa eariest makapanood ng Miss Universe! Wish granted,” Lacuna wrote in a Viber message posted by Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.

Some users also quipped that Moreno forgot the Miss Universe hashtag in his post.

The mayor then obliged and added the hashtags #PHILIPPINES, #MissUniverse, #AribaRabiya #VaccineNationIsTheSolution.

#MissUniverse is the official hashtag of the pageant.

The Philippine bet to pageant, Rabiya Mateo, finished at the top 21 of Miss Universe.
