House to honor Miss World 2013 on Monday’s session-A A +A
Wednesday, October 9, 2013
THE House of Representatives is set to honor Miss World 2013 Megan Young at the resumption of its sessions on Monday, October 14.
"We are very proud of her and we will surely give her at the very least a framed resolution to thank her for what she has done," House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. said Wednesday.
Asked whether the beauty queen will be given a cash reward along with the framed resolution, Belmonte quipped, "Hahalikan ko sa pisngi, sa pisngi, fatherly."
Young, 23, edged 126 other international candidates in the pageant to become the successor of China's Wenxia Yu.
Earlier, the House independent bloc led by Leyte Representative Ferdinand Martin Romualdez sought to honor Young for being the first Filipina Miss World.
"Now therefore, be it resolved as it is hereby resolved that the House of Representatives give commendation and honor to the newly crowned and the country’s first-ever Miss World’ titlist after sixty three years, to Miss Megan Lynne Young," the resolution read.
The actress-turned-beauty queen is set to return to the Philippines Thursday, October 10. Young will be welcomed through a motorcade along Ayala Avenue in Makati City, Miss World Philippines director Cory Quirino earlier said.
Young is currently in London, the official residence of Miss World 2013. (Sunnex)
