AFTER making to the last eight, she had to talk about a crown. And she ended up winning one at the 2007 Miss Malaysia Global Beauty Queen grand final held recently at G Hotel.
The Kolej Tunku Abdul Rahman student and part-time model, Moo Yan Yee drew out a photo of a crown and had to say whatever that came to her mind about the object.
Being tested for her intelligence and creativity, the 19-year-old from Kuala Lumpur said that the crown represented power.
“A woman must have her own freedom, not just confidence and wisdom.
“If I win the crown, I will share my victory with the community by doing charity and introducing Malaysia’s beauty to the world,” she said at the Q & A session.
Now she will have to live up to her word as she beat 13 other finalists at the finals to win the title and the chance to represent Malaysia in the 19th Miss Global Beauty Queen 2007 pageant in Ning Bo, China on Sept 16.
Winning first runner-up in the Miss Malaysia Tourism Queen Inter-national 2007 in May was perhaps just a warm-up for her before being crowned the ‘queen’.
“I will have to do some homework before I go. I will travel around Ma-laysia to learn as much as I can about tourism, the local cultures and tourist destinations.
“I hope to take many photos of the unique cultures and places of interest to take along with me when I leave for China. I can then show and tell others about the many colours of Malaysia,” she said.
Moo won RM3,000, air ticket to China, crown, sash, flower bouquet, pewter trophy, RM10,000 property cash voucher, pearl necklace worth RM1,500, cosmetics worth RM1000, hair care products worth RM300, RM1,000 lingerie product voucher, RM300 photo cash voucher and RM200 spa treatment voucher.
She was also the queen of sub-sidiary titles, winning five out of the 10 titles, including Miss De’ Santia Photogenic, Miss B & J, Miss Palace Beauty, Miss Blue Nun and Miss Esui.
First runner-up was Penangite Faye Chai Lee Cheik, who was also Miss Beautility Crowning Glory.
The 25-year-old model was very happy to win second place and was looking forward to celebrate with Moo.
In third place was Han Chiang College’s Mass Communication stu-dent Amanda Somar Mahtani from Malacca. The 21-year-old said that she did not expect to win at all.
Winners of the other subsidiary titles were Penangites Stephanie Wong Wei Ying (Miss De’ Santia Elegance and Miss Copra) and Lilian Choo Li Lian (Miss Congeniality), and Linny Neoh Siew Ling from Johor (Miss Flix).
The 2007 Miss Malaysia Global Beauty Queen was presented by property developer Emerald Capital Group and organised by Catvogue Enterprise.
