21st April to 23rd April 2007
On 21st April 2007 (Saturday), 10:00 am, all State Representatives will have to report to the Organizer at the hotel. In the morning, from Malacca, Desmond fetched me there. I was the latest to reach there…around 10.20am.
Blame on me, haha… I thought everyone will be late(Malaysian timing), so I leave Malacca at 8.30am.
When I reached there, the chaperon asked me to do my own make up first as we will have our 1st photoshooting. The first thing that come to my mind….????!!!????.......haha…..The professional make up artist will come later, but we have no time to wait for them. So, when they come, they will just do touch-up for us. Wah….when I see the other contestants, they really know how to do their own make-up compared to me. Haha… But, it’s all right.
So, from day 21st April to 23rd April, these 3 days, we spent our time doing photoshooting. We did our own portrait photo, sponsors photoshooting, scenery shooting as well as group photos. In this event, our sponsors are Bata, Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, Sogo Departmental Store, Airellies Skin Care, United Print Process, Bonita, Adora Rodel, ecoBrown, Thomas&Guys, Mayflower Coach, Nobel Cast Producer, and Kai professional make-up.

On 24th April, we went to meet the press with our Batik Wear at the Sunway Resort Swimming Pool. The press from various newspaper such as NST, The Star, Malay Mail, Nanyang Siang Pau, Sin Chew, etc will choose few of us to be interviewed. The questions they will ask are like, “What makes you join this competition?”, “What have you learn so far?”, What do you expect from this competion?” etc…
After the press meeting, we quickly went to toilet, change to a V-neck shirt and black mini-skirt. We headed to a room and meet with the Press again. This time, everyone was needed to introduce themselves and later the Press interviewed the VIPs of this event.
After the press meeting room, we get to meet the Tourism’s VIP outside the room. In the evening, we learnt the sequence of walking as we needed to do our preview show the next day.

27th April 2007
Today is our pre-judging day. It was a different experience. As everyone of us are interviewed individually in a room. The room is like a CLC room. (If you are a MMU student, you should know what kind of room I’m describing.) It was a bit scary. As the room is very cold, and the attire we needed to wear is evening wear. Luckily not swimming wear..haha..if not I will turn to ice!!!! So we did our rehearsal few times on which entrance to go in, how are we going to sit, intro etc.
Individually go in the room, the contestant will need to sit on the chair which located on the stage. In front of you will be 11 judges. The pre-judging starts and when reached my turn, I was a bit worried when I reached the stage because my long dress stuck at my heels. Haha…luckily I manage to get rid of it fast. As soon as my butt landed on the chair, I introduce myself and the judges started asking me questions. Luckily, I manage to break the ice and I was satisfied with my performance. This pre-judging consist of 70% of overall event. 50%-beauty from head-to-toe(height,complexion etc) and 20%- communication skills.
Later at night, we went and do another preview show for Lioness Club dinner. For the first show, we did the hand language of ‘Heal The World’ with candles on our hand, 2nd round- dancing with black dress and heels.

Today, we did our talent show rehearsal. At night, we did our talent show in front of the Lioness Club people.

Grand Final of Miss
Overall, the staying at Sunway Resort was great. We were treated nicely, Great Breakfast, Lunch and dinner. Everyone of us stay there becoming fatter and fatter as the food is really nice and we eat our meal on time. Imagine, breakfast at the hotel, we get to eat buffet of porridge, bun, roti canai, mee hoon, nasi lemak, western style and many more. Lunch and dinner(packed food)– Seafood/Chicken/Beef Spaghetti, Lamb chop, Mc-D set, rice and dishes, Fried rice with chicken wing,hotdog and vegetables, Wan tan ho, etc...We also had Japanese buffet and went to few restaurants with great chinese food.
I really enjoyed my staying there, the room was also very nice. But what I want to say, through this competition, I really learn a lot, in terms of communicating and staying with people, learn how to dress ourselves well etc. It’s something you can’t buy and everyone of us, is already winner in the heart...
p/s- Never take much pictures, because I never bring my own camera and we had no time to take our own picture also. Haha..:p. So, hope you all enjoy la…
