Press Release:

In the era of quick-fixes and convenience, it is all too easy to lose one’s identity and forget our roots. The Miss Chinese World pageant was created by Malaysia’s very own, Tan Sri Datuk Danny Ooi to celebrate and promote the Chinese culture, values and age-old traditions alive while bringing together beauties of Chinese ethnicity from all over the world to foster peace, goodwill and friendship among contestants.

With the title slogan “The Beauty of Hearts, The World of Wisdom”, it would not do for contestants to only possess a pretty face. The pageant will be an interesting showcase of talent and mental powers. With this year’s theme ‘Heritage of the Orient’, these ethnic Chinese beauties must display a strong sense of understanding of what it means to be a Chinese.

The Miss Chinese World pageant will see 31 participants from 9 countries worldwide, namely; China, Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar, Taiwan, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Malaysia. It will run from 14th May 2017 till the World Final Event on the 26th May 2017 at One World Hotel. The Miss Chinese World pageant is jointly organized by Miss Chinese World Sdn Bhd and Legacy Film Sdn Bhd.

Prior to the Grand Final Night, the participants will be engaged in many promotional programs including official visits around the country to promote tourism, engage in activities like dumpling making, Chinese calligraphy and a tea appreciation session. They will also be promoting Mother’s Day and raising funds for an old folks’ home.

“It is always interesting to observe a big group of beautiful ladies coming from vastly different countries and backgrounds yet sharing one common root, which is their Chinese ethnicity, converging under one event. We hope that these ladies will form good relationships and lasting friendships while keeping their Chinese pride alive”, said Zoee Tan, Director of Legacy Film, the official joint organizer for the pageant. Tan, herself, a pageant winner for Miss Malaysia Tourism 1996 has also won many local and international pageant titles.

The Miss Chinese World pageant is the brainchild of Tan Sri Datuk Danny Ooi, who is no stranger in the pageant circuit. He has 25 years of pageant organizing experience under its belt for both international and local beauty pageants. “I created the Miss Chinese World pageant in year 2005. Being in the pageant industry for as long as I have, I realize more and more that the younger generations are shunning their roots to quickly embrace the latest trends and identities of other cultures. Being Chinese, I decided that it is of utmost importance to keep our beautiful Chinese language, cultures, values and traditions alive. I hope that in years to come, this effort of mine will bear fruit and see the younger generations reflecting the tenets of Chinese values such as tenacity, respect, and filial piety,” said Tan Sri Datuk Danny Ooi during the press conference held on 16 th May 2017 at One World Hotel.

My thoughts:

I like the reason why YBhg. Tan Sri Datuk Danny Ooi (President of Miss Chinese World 2017) started the whole pageant. It is true that our tradition have died off as the time passes (no matter what race or religion we are from), at least that's what happened in my family. Each passing year has made our prayer tradition simpler coz of our busy lifestyle and laziness. 

I personally feel that such a pageant is much more meaningful and can bring about awareness of the importance of Chinese tradition; that is, "to preserve the Chinese culture, values and traditions alive in a beautiful way".

Looking forward to the finals on 26th May 2017 at One World Hotel.
Any of you interested in checking out the event?
^^

Good luck to all delegates of Miss Chinese World 2017!


Cheers,
Bee
