Septemberrific End

Some of month's highlights are as follows:

From PBO
I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the founders and team of Pinoy Bloggers Outreach. It was such a great pleasure to receive this priceless award. Salamuch! As much as i want to be physically present in every group's event activities but as of the moment some health issues prevent me from doing so, yet i am still hoping that i can be of help in any way i can. ;)

Mid-Autumn Festival

Eng Bee Tin's huge mooncake - 75 inches in diameter and 3 inches thick.
Looked really yummy!

Chinese-Filipinos celebrate the evening and exchange mooncakes with all Filipinos friends, families, and neighbors. According to Wikipedia, legends associated with the Mid-Autumn Festival is the Matchmaking which stated that young women are encouraged to throw their handkerchiefs to the crowd. The young man who catches and returns the handkerchief has a chance of romance.

Megan Young crowned Miss World 2013
23 year old Megan Young of the Phillipines won the 63rd Miss World beauty pageant in the Indonesian resort island of Bali.

To the question “Why should you be Miss World?” Young answered,  
“I treasure a core value of humanity and that guides people why they act the way they do. I will use this to show other people how they can understand each other … as one, we can help society.” -source
Before Young's victory, the highest honors for the Philippines in the Miss World competition was 1st runner-up in 1973, which went to Evangeline Pascual.

In 2011, the country's bet Gwendoline Gaelle Ramos Ruais was named 1st runner-up Asia & Oceania Continental Queen.

Last year, Miss World 2012 Philippines Queenierich Rehman was among the Top 15 candidates in the beauty contest. -source

Looking back on the first day of September, i felt a bit of chance that this month would be a lot better than the past months. but it never was Hell, yeah not to mention how things are changing very differently for me, like acceptance is the only cure to be okay again. It has been years ago and felt like I've been struggling for almost like forever. Expressing too much unhappiness, though still looking for the brighter side of each passing day.
So long September,, and say hello October. quite excited for November atleast i am.
