The TKS Mrs International Pageant 2019 (the 13th Anniversary of the Pageant, 2006 – 2019) is the first and only Beauty Pageant that I have entered to date. World Class Beauty Queens: What inspired you to do your first pageant? It had been a dream of mine to appear on stage from a very young age, but somehow, life overtook my hopes and dreams. As time passed, I got married and started a family. Finally at the age of 57, this opportunity came along, and despite a number of struggles and obstacles, I set my heart and mind to persevere and complete this 6 month Beauty Pageant journey, before it was too late. I didn’t want to find myself looking back with regret at not having grasped this chance that had opened up before me.
World Class Beauty Queens: Why did you choose to compete for your current title? This Beauty Pageant was divided into a number of different categories, and due to my age and circumstances I qualified for this category – Elite Mrs Singapore SE Asia 2019.
World Class Beauty Queens: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about? This Pageant was spread out over a period of 6 months, during which there were a number of different events and programmes, and it culminated in a Grand Final.

During each of these different stages we were being judged and evaluated, not just on that specific event, but also on our attitude and behaviour, and the overall way that we carried ourselves throughout the entire period. We were being judged on our etiquette, manners and personal grooming both on and off the stage, and learnt to understand the importance of the conducting ourselves with refinement and elegance at all times.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your experience during the competition. I came through many experiences, from doubt and confusion in the early stages, through stressful moments, to happiness and some surprises at finally seeing things work out smoothly.
