Back to being Kapuso, Megan is
And so it came to pass.
Miss World 2013 Megan Young is back to the network where she originally started her showbiz career that was beautifully interrupted last 2013 when she joined and won Miss World Philippines before claiming the blue crown in Bali, Indonesia the same year.
Queen Megan signed a one-year exclusive contract with GMA-7 where she is initially slated to host “Starstruck” – the reality-based artista search where was once a part of as a contender – with actor Dingdong Dantes. After this, the buzz is that she will finally return to full-time acting via a lead role in a teleserye which is still under wraps for now.
Welcome back to Philippine showbiz, Queen Megan! 😀
Holy Tuesday. Day #2 of our Beauty Pageant Movies. I always enjoy black comedies. You can feel the bite and be entertained at the same time. This 1999 movie starred Kirsten Dunst, Ellen Barkin, Denise Richards and Kirstie Alley where they play characters who follow the deadly beauty contest motto “you win any way you can . . . or you die trying.”
“Drop Dead Gorgeous” – the local boosters of Mount Rose, Minnesota proudly invites you to watch as their annual celebration of civic pride, wholesome achievement, teenage innocence and spirited camaraderie all go up in hilarious flames over the course of one vicious, nasty, back-stabbing beauty contest. A wickedly colorful, twisted comedy, Drop Dead Gorgeous probes the heart of a small Minnesota town where a teen beauty pageant has unleashed a fury of very unladylike behavior. – rottentomatoes.com

Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach enjoying Amorita Resort in Bohol for a Philippine Daily Inquirer Lifestyle photoshoot
Just very recently, Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach flew to Bohol to do a photoshoot for the Lifestyle section of the Philippine Daily Inquirer. She stayed at Amorita Resort
located in Panglao Island. And for the uninitiated, Pia is a contributing stylist and beauty writer to Inquirer Lifestyle’s 2bU section
so this trip was a reunion of sorts with her friends in the broadsheet’s 2BU Team
. Do watch out for the final shots in an upcoming PDI

Congratulations, Liesl! 😀
For this year’s Holy Week, I have decided to combine two (2) subject matters I love the most – beauty pageants and movies. So instead of going preachy or anything, I thought it best to make a daily feature on some of the films about beauty contests that I enjoyed watching in the past – guilty pleasure or not.
For Holy Monday, I have decided to start with “Miss Congeniality” (2000) – the light action-comedy that starred Sandra Bullock as FBI Agent Gracie Hart who went undercover as Miss New Jersey in the Miss United States competition to investigate and stop the reported bombing plans for the finals. What made the film more interesting for me was the presence of the delightful Candice Bergen. Watch the trailer now. If you’d like to see the whole movie, click on the link after the preview vid.

Starting today, March 30, I will be on Holy Week Break till Black Saturday, April 4. I really need a bit of uninterrupted “me” time and this period will work best – no scheduled pageant coverages for the media and everyone else is escaping the big city.
But don’t worry, dear readers. There will still be at least one (1) pageant-related post per day. These are the features I have already prepared ahead of time and scheduled to go live on the dot either at 12 midnight or 12 noon.
Come Wednesday, I will also be flying to my 2nd love of a city – Bangkok – just to spend a few days where I can recharge my mind and body. Perhaps, I can get an inspiration or two somewhere.
Normal operations will resume on Easter Sunday, April 5.
Just a short break from the daily grind for your sleepless blogger
Be productive and meditative in the upcoming days! 🙂
