I joined Miss Malaysia Universe 2009, and i wrote about my experience in my other private blog... So now i am just gonna copy and paste it in here starting from... Now.
This May, I entered Miss Malaysia Universe 2009. I was contestant number 9, Gabrielle Ashley Boudville. Hahaha. I am not afraid to write my full name online anymore. :P and apparently i am the mongolian in this competition :P..anyone that doesn,t know me who is reading this, i am Eurasian( french , portuguese, Chinese) :D..My parents also found out about this competition and asked me to join. So I went for the interview.We had training for approximately a week before the final day, i learned a lot, Peter Lum was our groomer, i always got scolding from him, hahaha because my mind was drifting someplace else the whole time(according to him :P) ... but his intentions were good. And Peter’s sister Karlai WAS AWESOME!!! I was talking about serial killers to some of the girls when i found out that she was also interested in Psychology and True Crime! I was so excited to discuss about this topic with her! And she even gave me quite a number of books on True Crime! But unfortunately I haven’t read it yet...i will soon though, when I am free. Thanks Karlai! If you ever read this. :D
I got to meet the lots and lots of kool sponsors! I am really thankful... and we got loads of free stuff... i favourite free stuff was the Tennis Dress that Ana Ivanovic wears!!! I LOVE IT! Thanks ADIDAS! And normally i don’t wear colors but Jaspal gave me this really nice mini blue dress. Roxy gave us a swimsuit.. never imagined that i will ever wear a bikini but it was awesome. and other sponsors like Adonis and Rmk gave us a lot too...
I came to this competition unprepared, I mean, I don’t even have a single idea of what beauty queens were supposed to do, I learned a lot. We had to look good at all times, we were constantly photographed. We had to visit sponsors a lot. And the most challenging part was SMILING!!! Damn it was so effing hard to smile the whole day, if you watched the videos on TV, my face was like ‘ Can i stop smilling now?’ hahahahaha... Oh yea...Some people thought we were shemales! Hahahaa. I take that as a compliment, becuase shemales are really hot. :P
I got the chance to meet a lot of famous people... I didn’t really recognise most of them :X ... sorry, out dated :X ... but now i know a few.. i got to meet former beauty queens like Maggie Loo( she is so sweet! Always giving advice, talking about God... her sister was awesome too!) , Natalie Glebova is really really HOT I got to say. Hahaha! She was Miss Universe 2005 and I got the chance to meet and talk to her too, we were talking about normal stuff, and there was one point where I was talking about Tennis with her, she said she isn’t really a big fan of tennis but she was going to Wimbledon is year. I didn’t even realise that Natalie’s husband is A TENNIS PLAYER until I was watching Wimbledon! Freakin' awesome.
The hotel that we stayed in was awesome too, The Royale Chulan, quite new but nice... it was really cold and big! there is this hall(something like an outdoor ballroom, infront of the cafeteria), it was so beautiful, white marble floor i think, we had an islamic fashion show there after the competition. Ahahaha. And the Staff there was really friendly! And i LOVE the Buffet there! Ahahahahaha... we were supposed to go on a diet but I ate like a cow there, I LOVE the chocolate fountain. HAHAHAHAHA!!! The hotel GM is very funny. hahaha. he said he has 3 favourites, and i am one of them. hahaha.
