Catriona, Rohit and Mireia
The visit to Manila of Miss World 2015 Mireia Lalaguna and Mister World 2016 Rohit Khandelwal is decidedly low-key. It doesn’t help that their brief stay coincides with the flurry of Miss Earth 2016 activities that members of the media were torn as to which events to cover as the scheduled hours overlapped. At any rate, the charity visits to the Beauty With A Purpose (BWAP) Projects at the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) pushed through at the Cancer Pediatric Wards, as well as the activity at Tulay Foundation for differently-abled children and young teens.
Good friends Mireia and Miss World Philippines 2015 (and Miss World 2015 Top 10) Hillarie Parungao reunited as well. We can still remember them being close during last year’s competition in Sanya, China.
As for Rohit, the dashing Indian (aside from joining in the charity events) also met up with Miss World 2013 Megan Young and Miss World Philippines 2016 Catriona Gray. Shades of a dinner with a former titleholder, a reigning titleholder and possibly a future titleholder for Miss World Organization (MWO).
For now, the good-looking duo are still billeted at Conrad Manila but will be checking out soon to fly off to their next destination.

Hope you enjoyed your brief stay in Manila!😉
Miss World 2013 Megan Young
Miss World 2013 Megan Young has really immersed herself back into TV acting. After her successful comeback as “Marimar” last year, she is now ready to do heavy drama in her next project with GMA-7 where she will star opposite actor Dingdong Dantes and test her acting chops with Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Jaclyn Jose and character actor Sid Lucero.
This is such a welcome assignment for the former Miss World because she was already into continuous serious acting prior to winning the blue crown in Bali last 2013. And given the advocacy-driven theme of the still-untitled teleserye, she is excited to be part of another ground-breaking series for the TV network.
Best of luck, Megan! Looking forward to this one!🙂

The Top 3 (left to right) 2nd RU Aldo Esparza Ramirez of Mexico, Mr World Rohit Khandelwal of India and 1st Runner-Up Fernando Alvarez of Puerto Rico
India won its first Mr World title by placing on top of the competition during the recently-concluded finals in Southport, UK hosted by Miss World 2013 Megan Young. He is an actor back in his home country, and is now tagged as “The World’s Most Desirable Man”.
Edged out for the title is 1st Runner-Up Fernando Alvarez of Puerto Rico who – inspite of missing the big win by just a few points- got some sort of vindication after missing out a Top 5 placement during Mister International 2015 in Manila.
Aldo Esparza Ramirez of Mexico completed the winning troika by snatching 2nd Runner-Up honors.
Our bet, Sam Ajdani, failed to advance to the semifinals. His late arrival in the competition might have costed him precious points in the fast-track segments and the over-all judging of the pre-pageant.
Congratulations to all the winners!

It’s going to be our first Miss World hosting Mr. World 2016
There is no formal announcement so far, but the latest update I got from a reliable source is that Miss World 2013 Megan Young will definitely be going to the UK, quite possibly
as host of Mr. World 2016
on July 19 to be held Southport – England’s Classic Resort. This won’t surprise me anymore if ever as the Miss World Organization fully supports its past titleholders (our first Miss World especially
) and has always been a believer in Megan’s ability to navigate the final proceedings with the right amount of class and charm (as evidenced by previous stints in Miss World 2014, Miss World 2015 and the last edition of Mr. World
This year’s event in Southport promises to be bigger. Judgment night will be held at the Floral Hall of Southport Theatre Convention Centre (STCC). And with the presence (either as host or special guest) of our very first Miss World, it will lend more glitz to the selection of the successor of the reigning winner, Nicklas Pedersen.🙂
In the meantime, reminisce the finals of Mr. World 2014 in the video below.

Miss World 2013 Megan Young as made up by Albert Kurniawan
Don’t ask me what the latest endorsement or TV commercial of Miss World 2013 Megan Young is because my lips are still sealed on that. Just enjoy her beautiful face above courtesy of Albert Kurniawan for her latest product shoot and filming.
Megan has become one of the favorite commercial models on TV now. She has done tons for Palmolive Conditioner and Palmolive Naturals. She also made quite a number for Security Bank and Security Bank Cashback Mastercard. There is also her TVC with actor Xian Lim for Kopiko Brown Coffee. And before I forget, she did a relatively funny one for Ligo Tuna.
Here are six of the latest.

So under what product classification will you find her next? She has done a bank, hair care, coffee (she introduced me to one of the best-kept secret coffee places in the metro) and canned tuna. Make a wild guess, dear readers.😉
Megan Young & Mikael Daez in Tokyo
Miss World 2013 Megan Young and TV/Film Actor Mikael Daez are currently on a holiday break in Tokyo. With the sweet couple in between teleseryes
at the moment, the Land of the Rising Sun seems to be always the perfect choice for a vacation around the region. From morning breakfasts at Tsukiji Market to strolls around the quieter streets of Tokyo all the way to meaningful glances inside the subway – truly pictures speak louder than words in the modern jet-setting love story of the two.
I love how they handle the relationship in the eyes of many. No sweetness overload. Just sincere nuances and affection for each other.
No more, but mean more.🙂
Miss World 2013 Megan Young at the Kapama Private Game Reserve in South Africa
Earlier this week, Miss World 2013 Megan Young made a quick trip to Singapore where she watched an open-field concert. I follow her Instagram account and learned that the stay in the Lion City was just a prelude to her next journey. She is now in South Africa, enjoying the beastly sights of the Safari while jotting down thoughts on her daily adventures. The large photo in the grid above was taken at the Kapama Private Game Reserve where she wrote the following description:
We usually leave at 6am for the game drive but on this particular day, we asked our ranger if we could leave earlier to catch the sunrise. We left the reserve by 4:45am and drove into an open meadow where it was safe enough to go down and have some coffee while waiting for the sun to rise. It was a bit cloudy but soon enough, a red light started peeping through the clouds. The sun was rising. Waking up earlier than usual was worth it. #TravelWithAccess @accesstravelph
I’m pretty sure the next few images Megan will share are worth looking forward to. This is such an incredible vacation for our Miss World 2013.
Of course, she is not by her lonesome in South Africa. But I digress from talking about such details. She is, after all, very low profile about that part of her life. And I respect her request.
Enjoy the trip, Queen Megan!😉
