They say that the Philippines is a country of boxers and beauty queens. Okay, perhaps that’s an exaggeration. But admit or not, we’re a country whose citizens have a passion for these two fields of interests. Add reality shows and singing contests to the list as well. 😀

I remember that when I was younger, we used to watch beauty pageant telecasts on TV. I was in awe with the western candidates then ‘coz a lot of them looked like live Barbie dolls. However, my fascination for beauty pageants have since waned over the years. So why am I writing about it huh?

You can say that for now, at least temporarily, my interest for a particular pageant was rekindled. I’m referring to the Miss World competition which is being held in Indonesia this year. What made me change my mind? Well, I’m rooting for a candidate from our country. She’s none other than Megan Young, a local actress, TV host, model, and now Miss World Philippines 2013.

Megan Young, Miss World Philippines 2013

Megan Young has been around the local showbiz industry for a while now, mostly playing bit roles and doing hosting jobs. I’m a new fan since I started following a TV series that she starred in, “TV5 Misibis Bay.” The series ran for two months and it was really engaging! I even made screen shots from each of the episodes and posted it on my fan site over on Tumblr. (Photo credit below: Megan Young’s instagram account – @meganbata)

To make the long story short, I’m now following Megan Young’s journey in the Miss World 2013 competition. The coronation night is slated on 28th September 2013. By that time, we’ll know if she has succeeded in winning for the Philippines the first ever Miss World crown. In my heart, Megan Young has what it takes to be Miss World 2013. But until that time, I’m doing my part in supporting her and praying for her win too.
