NEGRI Sembilan lass Carace Kuan was chosen as the Miss Malaysia Tourism Queen International 2007 at the finals held in Port Dickson recently.
The 21-year-old student was in disbelief when her name was called out as the winner at the Glory Beach Resort.
Last year’s winner Jolene Lee crowned Kuan.
Moo Yan Yee from Perak was the first runner up, Veronica Ling from Johor the second runner up, Janet Cheok from Kuala Lumpur the third runner up and Perak lass Jessie Chuah the fourth runner up.
Kuan, who was mobbed by her family members and friends, said she did not expect to win.
“It was an enriching experience for me and I will do my best to promote my state and the country,” she said.
Kuan will represent Malaysia in the Miss Tourism Queen International 2007 finals in Huangzhou, China next month.
She received RM5,000, an air ticket to China as well as other prizes.
