So when the opportunity came for her to represent her college in a beauty pageant, I asked ate to jump at the chance because it was another mother-daughter experience we could share together.
But more than that, I wanted her to have a boost in her morale. This is so important to me because her self-esteem & worth was badly shattered a while back by people she thought were her friends.
She didn’t come out as the grand winner in the pageant, but she placed nicely & was even genuinely happy to see her friend Annica win the title. Beauty pageants are really not her thing haha. I was soooo nervous for her the whole time because she is a newbie while the others really compete. Mga bihasa na! :)

Here are some pictures from the pageant last night. I can never tell you enough just how proud I am of you, ate! <3 You strutted nicely, I just love your bounce & how you carried yourself well. I was also so proud of the way you answered BOTH q&a’s with such confidence & grace under pressure. And so quickly too! For me, you were the brightest & shiniest diamond in the sky! ;)
I am the luckiest, proudest mommy in the whole wide world!!! <3
