THE VENUE WAS NOT THE EASIEST TO GET TO AS WE TOOK OVER 2 HOURS TO REACH FROM KL! SETIA CITY CONVENTION CENTRE IS HUGE AND WELL EQUIPPED AND MODERN BUT I WISH IT WAS SOMEWHERE IN KL'S GOLDEN TRIANGLE!
Still, the trip was worth it as Elaine Daly, who took over from Andrea Fonseka, presented a stunning show worthy of her title as she was Miss Malaysia Universe in 2003, exactly 10 years ago!
"I was approached by Andrea Fonseka and MUMO (Miss Universe Malaysia Organisation) to produce the 2013 edition and I said why not? It has been 10 years since I won the crown and represented Malaysia in Panama."
And under Elaine Daly's jurisdiction, the latest edition of Miss Malaysia Miss Universe was done to perfection with such stellar sponsors like Rafflesia owned by top high society jeweller Winnie Sin, Fashion Valet,VIP Koreana, FHM magazine, Air France, KLM, People-graphy and Naza Maserati.
The Maserati Quattroporte was there in the foyer but it was NOT given to the winner or else I would have flown to Bangkok for a sex change and taken part and won since I am better than any woman except Kuan Yin and Virgin Mary.
The judges were Wan Ahmad of Maserati, Miko Au, Reshmonu, Sazzy Falak, Dr Daniel Yap, Andrew Tan of Andrews Models and Carmen Soo. The resident judges were Elaine Daly, Carmen Soo and Syomir Izwa.
Elaine Daly gave a superb speech and spoke like a presidential candidate, proving winning Miss Malaysia Universe is indeed a major, all-important platform for a young lady to reach for the stars with her feet planted on the ground! After all, one can dream big dreams but within reason!
Of the 18 finalists, 10 were chosen and these were whittled to the Top 4. The Q and A session was the make or break and I was impressed by the calibre of these quartet! They were so confident and articulate while maintaining their poise and elegance!
Winner Sabrina Beneett was asked by Sazzy Falak was it easier to be a man or woman. Sabrina cleverly replied there is no answer to this question as it depended on the individual since it was equally complicated being a man or woman!
Elaine Daly did a magnificent job as mentor! Well done! And congratulations. Elaine said, "Next year we plan to go back to the various states to reach as many candidates as possible and the finals might even be held in a stadium!"
Then again, Elaine Daly is a BAB. Yes, it can mean a babe as her body now looks better and more sensational than a decade ago and she is also a full-fledged lawyer! Beauty and Brains!
