One of the ways to Filipinos' hearts is to learn their language, and Costa Rica's Miss Universe bet, Carolina Rodriguez, has done that remarkably well.
During the photo shoot in Pico de Loro in Nasugbu, Batangas, Rodriguez told GMA News: "I'm from Costa Rica. I'm a beach girl. I think that Costa Rica is an unforgettable paradise, but I come here and now I say to myself, 'I have found a second paradise.'"
Rodriguez then disclosed that she's learned some Filipino greetings and introductory statements like "Magandang umaga po (Good morning)" and "Ako po si Carolina Rodriguez mula sa Costa Rica (I am Carolina Rodriguez from Costa Rica)."
What's more surprising is that Rodriguez knows expressions like "Chos!" and "Charing!" from her Filipino friends in Costa Rica.
With her easygoing personality, Rodriguez can easily be one of the local crowd's favorite, too. Check out some of her Instagram posts!
