Amidst all the controversies (and unforgiveable embarrasments) with the initial days of SEA Games hosting in the country, the Opening Ceremony this coming Saturday, November 30, should be a source of pride for Filipinos. Aside from the showcase of World-Class singing talents, the muses of the participating countries in the region’s biennial sporting event will be eleven (11) of our international beauty titleholders, namely:
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach for Team Philippines
Miss World 2013 Megan Young for Team Indonesia
Miss International 2005 Precious Lara Quigaman for Team Malaysia
Miss Earth 2014 Jamie Herrell for Team Singapore
Miss Earth 2015 Angelia Ong for Team Thailand
Miss Earth 2017 Karen Ibasco for Team Myanmar
Miss Intercontinental 2018 Karen Gallman for Team Brunei
Miss Eco International 2018 Cynthia Thomalla for Team Laos
Miss Asia Pacific International 2018 Sharifa Akeel for Team Vietnam
Miss Tourism International 2017 Jannie Alipo-on for Team East Timor
Miss Multinational 2017 Sophia Senoron for Team Cambodia
Let’s hope that things go on an upswing after the festive start.
Many entries predicted Megan Young to win last year, but only one combined her name with the actual Princesses and their correct placements.
Six years ago today, the Philippines won its very first Miss World crown courtesy of Megan Young.
Below is her interview with BBC World TV via the program “Impact” just a week after her victory.
A wish for Miss Megan Young, the Philippines’ one and only Miss World titleholder thus far…
She turns 29 today.
“On your birthday, whatever you ask may you receive, whatever you seek may you find, whatever you wish may it be fulfilled…Have a good one!”
A day in the life of Miss World 2013 Megan Young can be grueling but beautiful—if you make the necessary adjustments and take supplements like Cosmo Skin Glutathione and #CosmoSkin Marine Collagen Powder Drinks in Classic Original, Lime and Passion Fruit flavors.
“Hours of taping can induce stress and ill health,” she notes, “not to mention that the glare of lights can be punishing to one’s health and complexion. This can lead to rough and dry skin that can show signs of ageing if you are not careful.”
Upon arriving home after a day’s work, Megan admits that achieving the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep in a day may not always be achievable for people like herself. That’s the reason why she makes it a point to take Cosmo Skin Glutathione before bed time. Glutathione is an antioxidant that provides—aside from skin whitening, also anti-ageing, detoxification and immune system boosting benefits.
“Late nights shouldn’t stop us from practicing rituals that ensure healthy skin,” she concludes. “That’s the reason why taking Cosmo Skin (Glutathione and Marine Collagen) makes all the difference.”
Cosmo Skin Glutathione and Cosmo Skin Marine Collagen Powder Drink in Classic Original, Lime and Passion Fruit Flavors are available at all Watsons Stores and selected distributors nationwide.

We all know that – right after reigning and serving her term as Miss World 2013 – Megan Young returned to the Philippines to resume her interrupted showbiz career and returned to her original home network (GMA-7) where she zoomed to lead star status in a few teleseryes including “Marimar” and the recently-concluded “Alyas Robin Hood“. She also made a movie with comedienne Ai-Ai delas Alas.
And now, Megan is ready to really go full blast internationally after signing up with New York’s Innovative Artists Agency. This is the move many expected of her more than two years ago. Watch her interview with Boy Abunda on TWBA where she discusses the subject matter. And then go to her fast talk afterwards.
