(Event) Grand Final | Miss Chinese World 2017

26th May 2017
One World Hotel

It was an honour to witness this years' Miss Chinese World 2017.
I was really excited as it was my first ever LIVE pageant show. 

As it was a glitzy event, I dressed up a bit from my last minute wardrobe coz it was too late for renting a dress.

Midi Skirt from Wonderism was one skirt I thought I'd never wear but it somehow looked okay. ^^

If you have not read about the Press Conference of Miss Chinese World, head over Here to know who's the founder, presenter, sponsors and pageants involved!

That night was wow coz there are just so many VIPs and celebrities. I even met Karan Kho (my long time aspiration for fitness, lifestyle, & traveling blogger). She was really sexy & nice in person. Next time if I get to see her, hopefully, I will get the courage for a wefie. Lolz.

Upon arrival, my eyes straight went to the exclusive crowns specially designed by renowned Malaysian designer, Orson Liyu
