HISTORY WAS MADE TWICE AT THE WORLD FINALS OF MISS TOURISM INTERNATIONAL AS BLOOD WAS LITERALLY, PHYSICALLY AND ACTUALLY SPILLED ON STAGE!
ALSO FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 15 YEARS, A MISS MALAYSIA HAS WON THE COVETED MISS TOURISM INTERNATIONAL TITLE!
NONE WAS SURPRISED WHEN AILEEN GABRIELLA ROBINSON, 22, ROMPED HOME AS THE NEW MISS TOURISM INTERNATIONAL 2011/12.
EACH TIME SHE APPEARED ON STAGE, THE 1,200 STRONG AUDIENCE BROKE INTO STRONG APPLAUSE WHICH SIGNALLED THE CROWN WAS HERS PRACTICALLY FROM HER FIRST APPEARANCE.
AS ONE OF 9 JUDGES, I KNEW SHE WOULD WIN PANTS DOWN, I MEAN HANDS DOWN.
UNLIKE SOME MALE JUDGES, I JUDGE A CONTESTANT BASED ON HER PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES, BREAST, BUTTOCKS, ,STATE OF HAIR, PROPORTION AND OVERALL BEAUTY. I NEVER VISUALISE HAVING SEX WITH HER!
I JUDGE CLINICALLY AND WITHOUT BIAS. COOL, CALM, CONFIDENT OF MY CONJECTURES, WHICH EXPLAINS WHY I AM SO POPULAR AS JUDGE FOR MAJOR, MIDDLING AND MINOR TITLES!
Oh, do I hear you squeaking and squealing about the blood spilled on stage.
No, the blood did not come from a catfight among contestants or delegates as they now preferred to be called which is ridiculous as a delegate has no link to a contest but as you know, someone who collects your garbage/trash/shit and cleans your toilet bowl is not a garbage man or toilet cleaner but a sanitary engineer so there you go. Anyway, the blood did not come from a beauty finalist clawing, biting and scratching another contestant, er, delegate.
No, the blood did not splash out as a result of a beauty queen falling flat on her face and smashing her teeth.
No, no one pushed another girl off the stage.
And no, no, no, the blood did not dribble and leak down a long, shapely leg from a carelessly shoved-in tampon although I presume out of the 54 finalists, a few would be having her period since I take it they are all virgins, pure as the driven snow, just like me.
Well, well, the blood did not even come from a girl but from a guy!
Yes, one of the shaolin/wushu performers did a stunning flying kick and landed practically on his chin, scraping his chin and resulting in blobs of blood on his right chest and part of his costume. I think the costumes were to blame as the loose tunic turned upside down as the performer did a somersault and covered his face, blocking his vision and thus allowing him to misjudge the distance.
The audience gasped as the large screens showed his bloodied chin and chest splashed with blood. But he was a pure pro as he carried on as if nothing had happened. The opening gambit was badly managed as he fell, another slipped and the third bumped into both!
I was sympathetic but to be frank, they should have seen it coming, considering emcee Dato Mahathir Lokman said this was an award-winning performance by shaolin fighters with an average age of 19! How come their blue tunics did not flip and block their vision when they won the contest? They should have removed the blue tunic as they were already wearing white kungfu robes! Surely modesty was not the issue though they were surrounded by ravishing beauties! Even if they had worn a different costume previously, there is this thing called 'full dress rehearsal'! So if you say they derserved it, I have no choice but to concur! Cruel but necessary as they should have performed bare chested or with proper garments neatly and tightly tied!
This poor chap was literally the 'fall guy' as he tripped and landed on his chin! Now his blood is splattered all over his bare right chest and tunic! But being a pro, he carried on with insouciance! Bravo!
Even if he was in pain, he did not flinch
Looked like he just emerged from cage fighting...
Intense concentration and meditation failed to stop the blood from oozing out
Deep inhalation could ease the pain
Look at them fly! Taken with my trusty Leica camera of course
Going strong despite the mishap
I blame the blue tunic for blocking their vision. All removed their tunic except this guy
Blood, gore and glory!
THE IMAGES BELOW ARE IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER, FROM THE JUDGES' BRIEFING TO THE CONTEST, COUTURE, CORONATION AND COCKTAILS AT THE AFTER-PARTY
Catherine Hew and Dato Danny Ooi briefing me and the rest of the judges at 7.30pm about the judging system so there is no cock-up
3 judges; Actor and singer Gregory Wong from Hong Kong, choreographer and producer David von Kort from London and fabulously flamboyant freelancer Kee Hua Chee from Kota Baru
David Cock I mean Kort and Kee Hua Chee who wore his name on his belt lest you forget his name and was too shy to ask
Two shy, retiring, wallflower types
Zoee Tan, Miss Malaysia Queen of Tourism 1996 and now actress and model, tried feebly and in vain to cover her ample boobs and looking away. I told her I had taken her photo anyway and she probably looked lousy so she should pose nicely
And she did! Her cut-out gown as simply stunning and she was best dressed female judge and I was best dressed. Period
Robin, the handsome lawyer bf of Miss Tourism International 2011/12 Natalie Den Dekker who flew in from Amsterdam to support her or rather see her give away her crown. He should have come last year, more like
Handsome Robin with Kee Hua Chee. So lucky Natalie Dekker to be able to make love to him nightly and probably during the day too

ROUND 1; THE APPEARANCE OF 54 CONTESTANTS IN NATIONAL COSTUMES
AS THIS WAS THE 15TH ANNIVERSARY OF MISS TOURISM INTERNATIONAL, 'A TOUCH OF CRYSTAL' WAS THE THEME SINCE CRYSTAL SYMBOLISES THE 15TH YEAR.
THE PERFORMANCE BY THE 54 FINALISTS FEATURED WHITE AND BLACK CRYSTALS DENOTED BY THE COLOURS OF THE TUNICS WORN BY THE NATIONAL BEAUTY QUEENS.
THOUGH THEORETICALLY THE WHITE AND BLACK CRYSTALS ARE IN THE SAME LEAGUE AS THE PURENESS OF WHITE MUST BE OFFSET AND BALANCED BY BLACK, I EXPECTED MISS MALAYSIA TO BE A WHITE CRYSTAL AND SHE WAS!
THE ABOVE IMAGES WERE TAKEN DURING THEIR VISIT TO THE CHILDREN'S ORPHANAGE AND BELOW ARE PICTURES OF 5 FINALISTS IN THE TALENT TIME CONTEST.
Miss Australia did the ballet
Miss China strummed a Chinese guitar
Miss Indonesia danced a classical routine
Miss Zimbabwe went wild
