It was my very first time to be in a pageant then. :)
teehee :3
My first reason was the additional grade but it turned out to be more than a 'grade-raising' activity, but A GREAT EXPERIENCE AND MEMORY=)

Well, it's not actually an official beauty pageant, it was more of like a brain pageant. In fact, we only had one attire for the whole evening.

'MISS PHILOSOPHY' was the name of the annual event and it was open to all UPLB students with Philosophy 1.
All sixteen candidates (eight pairs) were asked a personal question and a philosophical question.

I almost backed out before the pageant coz I was really unprepared and I felt the fear of being embarrassed >_^
Why Barefooted BeautyQueen?
Hoho..I was the only candidate who walked without footwear:)
I was also the only obese----im not obese now hopefully haha--- among them hihi =)

But I continued it to have fun with my friends and just face whatever happens :D I crossed my fingers that it would be a memorable experience. And it was. =') I also thought of my partner who, of course, could no longer find an instant partner that time if I back out.

In the end of the night and all the pressure, fun and stuff.
I really didn't expect I'd bring one of the six sashes (and an additional .25 in the average:) that were given during the night. These were: Mr. and Ms. Philosophy, Male and Female Best in Costume, and, Mr. and Ms. Congeniality.
There were no runners-up or extra awards so I really didn't expect to win hihi..I owe this to my fellow candidates who turned out to be my friends because if they didn't vote me I wouldn't be the Ms.Congeniality =')

The theme was Greek (as it used to be for this pageant) and Ma'am Kwe, a philosophy professor (but not in the section where I was) lent me this dress [thanks, Ma'am! :) ]
I love the accessories here..
The earrings were from my aunt.

That's all for now..
I'll inform you if I already updated my so-young blog who's been sleeping for months now. Sorry :/ hihi so busy ^_^ I plan to create a new one..yung totoo na hehe! (a true fashion blog) a blog with outfit posts and a few sections and not just random pictures;) Sigh....been really itching to do that years ago but I was just too afraid or too affected by procrastination :)

God bless and stay stylish people! ^_^
