Megan Young will have merry Pinoy Christmas 2013
Miss World 2013 Megan Young will be in the Philippines for the holidays.
Her younger sister, actress Lauren Young, said their family is excited to have Megan with them and be a “normal family” again.
“My mom and my brother Victor are so happy that Ate Megan was given this time to spend Christmas with us,” Lauren told Pep.
Since becoming Miss World last September, the Filipina beauty queen have not spent time with her family because of her duties. Their last encounter was when she visited the typhoon-ravaged areas in the country to personally help out in relief efforts.
“After she won Miss World, she has been so busy traveling, but she makes it a point to communicate with us via Skype, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram,” Lauren said.
Megan will leave for London after New Year.
In an article published on Miss World website, Megan recounted that her family would visit their house in the province and spend Christmas the old-fashioned, traditional way.
“We have a big back yard where we lay out one table with lots of food that everybody brings. Since its warm in the Philippines, we have a bbq out in the back and everybody is singing karaoke and dancing the night away,” she related.
Even without gifts, Megan’s family prizes the camaraderie during such occasions.
“It’s a nice time for everybody to get together and enjoy the company,” said she.
