This is the FINAL flashback of a great pageant! Miss Venezuela, 19 year old Elizabeth Mosquera won. First runner-up was Miss Thailand, Piyaporn Deejing and second runner-up was Miss China Yuan Siyi. Miss Thailand spoke English beautifully. Miss China knew a smattering and Miss Venezuela maybe 10 words.

The crown is mine, all mine!
IMG_6059.jpg
This dusky beauty is so exotic and erotic!
IMG_6059.jpg
Congrats, Miss Venezuela!
IMG_6059.jpg
Elizabeth Mosquera looked divine from any angle!

Beautiful bod too!

Ms Mosquera's mesmerising smile

My smile is whiter than Miss International 2010/11 as I had my teeth done by Datuk Dr Sean Paul of LivingWell at StarHill with branches at Great Eastern Mall and Phileo Damansara! It is the best investment I ever made in my entire, cotton-picking life!
IMG_6059.jpg
See, even without flash, my teeth shone brilliantly and were several shades whiter than Miss International 2010/11! Thanks to Datuk Dr Sean Paul of LivingWell!

Something triggered her
IMG_6059.jpg
I am still trying to figure out how her small crown can sit on her head without obeying the law of gravity...
IMG_6059.jpg
Expressive speaker
IMG_6059.jpg
Let me think for a second
IMG_6059.jpg
Got it!
IMG_6059.jpg
Her teeth quite nice too
IMG_6059.jpg
One tooth could do with a bit of whitening...

Dazzling beauty!

Oriental beauty
IMG_6059.jpg
Pretty as flower petal
IMG_6059.jpg
Here she looked a bit like Gong Li
IMG_6059.jpg
Expressive...
IMG_6059.jpg
What an oriental beauty!
IMG_6059.jpg
Miss China impressed everyone and brought the roof down when she performed a folk dance during the after-party! I almost dropped my pants, I mean, my glass of wine when she started her dance routine!
IMG_6059.jpg
Arching her back...
IMG_6059.jpg
She flexed her right arm
IMG_6059.jpg
And bent low
IMG_6059.jpg
Voila! It ended with a triumphant flourish!

Two oriental beauties!

Subsidiary titles winners

The afterparty was swell and I was able to take close-up shots of the winners and was pleasantly amused when many reporters started taking photos of me! Yup, they had never seen a guy wearing his face painted on his shirt, groin, shoes and bag! So I was photographed almost as much as the winners which amused me tremendously. Then again, I am used to it as each time I attend Fashion Week in London or Paris, the media assume I am a fashionista, buyer from China, scion of some family about to buy a fashion house or a rock star on his way up or down.

IMG_6059.jpg
They deserved to win
IMG_6059.jpg
Too lovely for words
IMG_6059.jpg
A smile for me!

IMG_6059.jpg
Hey, we must not forget the outgoing Miss International 2009/10 Miss Mexico Anagabriela Espinoza!
