Tahiti's Karen Chong Tops MCI Swimwear Stakes

Translated and courtesy of  Some sentences translated from The Sun Newspaper ().


Chime Long Paradise Amusement Park (長隆歡樂世界) in Guangzhou provided the backdrop for the swimsuit parade filming for this year's Miss Chinese International Pageant (國際中華小姐).

Before the shoot, the 23 contestants were joined by guests Cathy Leung (梁雨恩), Jason Chan (陳柏宇) and Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) for a ride on the roller coasters in the park, including a vertical drop ride. However, due to this being quite a scary ride, three of the girls: Number 7 Li Qinxin (李沁芯), Number 21 Kelly Meng (孟醇) and Number 22 Karen Chong (鍾嘉玲) refused to go on. Then a few more girls including Number 1 Joanne Yew (尤鳳音), Number 11 Desiree Yong (楊詩穎) and Cathy all pulled out too just as they were about to board the ride, but this did not affect filming.

The ladies then donned their swimsuits and posed for the cameras and the photographers around the fountains in the garden and reporters were stunned by Number 1 Joanne's 37 inch hips and cellulite thighs.

Number 22 Karen had the fullest bust of the girls and quickly stole the attention of the cameras with her 36 inch upper measurement.

Vancouver representative, Number 16 Jessica Choi (蔡凱欣) tried to grab some attention by striking some rather crazy poses for the photographers, but pageant director Rosa Chan (陳紫蓮) stepped in and told her not to exaggerate her movements so much. The movements almost caused her to move her swimsuit, fortunately it didn't happen.

The finals of the pageant will be held on 26 January 2008.

#14 Lisa Li wins Most Courageous award:

Delegates went on a roller coaster and competed for the Most Courageous award. #14 Lisa Li of Auckland was voted the winner of the award due to her courage of going on the roller coaster. Congratulations!

20 contestants pose in their colorful outfits in Foshan for filming. The three contestants missing from the picture are #15 Delaine Lee (Calgary), #17 Stacy Wang (New York), and #20 Hon Hiu Dan (Sydney). They did not arrive in the stadium as they felt sick and caught a cold due to the cold weather and lack of sleep.

Yesterday the contestants visited Foshan, China for outdoor filming and shootings in Foshan Century Track and Field Stadium. Three contestants in the pageant felt sick due to the cold weather in Foshan and lack of sleep. They included #15 Delaine Lee (Calgary), #17 Stacy Wang (New York), and #20 Hon Hiu Dan (Sydney). They will not be seen in the filming and shootings portion of the pageant which will be broadcasted on January 26th.

However after the filming, #16 Jessica Choi (Vancouver) and #18 Liang Wang (Toronto) retreated back to the hotel in the afternoon as they were also reported sick. In total five contestants and three of them from Canada have fallen sick.

#16 Jessica Choi of Vancouver has also been sick before. This time she has caught a cold again and she admitted that she lacked time to sleep. She has adopted to Vancouver's cold weather but with this time being unable to wear a coat, she became sick. As for #18 Liang Wang from Toronto, Liang has seen a doctor but her cold hasn't been fully cured. She also said "To prevent my parents from being worried, I didn't tell them that I'm sick!"

As for Miss Hong Kong Kayi Cheung, the whole morning in the stadium was facing the cold. She did not feel though the contestants were too tired and therefore got sick. She was asked if she has confidence and she said "Yes! After meeting the judges, I immediately put down my burden (chinese known as heart head big rock).

MCI Contestants Meet The Judging Panel


Translated and courtesy of

The 23 contestants for this year's Miss Chinese International Pageant (2008國際中華小姐競選) attended an event today, where they met this year's judging panel that consists of TVB Best Actor Moses Chan (陳豪) and Best Actress Lee Si Kei (李司棋), 70s crooner Kenny Bee (鍾鎮濤), heiress Poman Lo (羅寶文) and Cantonese opera star Pang Zhi Quan (彭熾權).

The ladies were allowed to select their own outfits for the event to show their fashion tastes and eye for detail, but Ting Jia Lorigiano (黃婷佳) from Montreal and Toronto's Liang Wang (王靚) appeared in the same outfit and there was a little awkwardness.

Early hot favourite Hon Hiu Dan (韓曉丹) from Sydney said that she felt more confident in herself after meeting the judges and Hong Kong representative Kayi Cheung (張嘉兒) was also very relaxed at the event and said that it was similar to when she took part in the Miss Hong Kong pageant. As for comments that some of the the other contestants had a wider face than she did, she said she had not noticed and would not upset by any comparisons.

This is the first time that Moses has judged in this contest and he said that the winning factors for him is for the contestants to be easy on the eye and have good conversation skills. Asked if he will use rumoured girlfriend Bernice Liu, who was a previous Miss Chinese International winner, as a standard to compare against, he said that he has to set his own high standards as a judge, so he would not compare in this way.

Asked if he felt that any of this year's contestants could challenge Bernice, he said that Bernice is a very strong person, so it is difficult to compare. He also revealed that he is a little nervous about the forthcoming swimwear parade and he is glad that he will have Kenny with him to keep him company.

Kenny was very pleased to have this chance to openly look at pretty girls and he said that in a pageant, the contestants have to look good overall and have good manners.

Si Kei said that the girls are representatives of the Chinese people and must have good poise and grace.

The cities of San Francisco, Chicago, and Johannesburg sent a delegate last year but didn't this year. Johannesburg also did very well in the past two years, with one winner and one 1st runner up but looks like the committee did not manage to organize a pageant. Chicago's Nancy Xu Yi-Nan was excepted to compete but withdrawed before going to Hong Kong due to schedule conflicts. The 1st runner up did not compete as she is left for next year and all the other contestants did not go (again due to schedule conflicts with holidays and with TVB only giving the committee one day to confirm a delegate). Rotterdam was replaced with Paris this year (representing Europe) and Nanning was replaced with the other China district delegates.

Kisses And Funny Walks As MCI 2008 Contestants Meet Press


Translated and courtesy of



Miss Chinese International Pageant 2008 (國際中華小姐競選) contestants met the press officially for the first time at the Gold Coast Hotel in Hong Kong today.

The 23 beauties wore mandarin collar patterned Chinese style dresses as they were introduced onto the stage and invited to strike a pose for the press. Many of the overseas contestants appeared to be quite flirtatious and Melbourne representative Kelly Meng (孟醇) won over the reporters by blowing them kisses during her pose. Miss Toronto Wang Liang (王靚) seemed to have a very exaggerated walk, whilst Jessica Choi (蔡凱欣) from Vancouver seemed to walk like a robot.

In contrast to this rather comedic display, the representatives from China and Hong Kong representative Kayi Cheung (張嘉兒) seemed to give rather boring poses and definitely lost out on the press attention. Kayi said that she had thought about her poses before she went on stage and was not worried about having the limelight stolen because she also showed off her figure in her poses. Asked why she did not blow any kisses, she said that she would do certain things in different situations, but as Miss Hong Kong, she felt that she should act properly to reflect this title. She added that the pageant was all about the beauty, so this was more important.

Delegates arrive in Tsui State for filming and shootings

Title: Kayi Cheung is satisfy with making top 10:

This year's Miss Chinese International pageant is currently in Xuzhou, China for filiming and shootings. Yesterday the delegates met the press for the first time. The quality of this year's delegates have been high, especially #13 Miss Paris, Oceana Zhu and #23 Miss Montreal, Ting Jia Wong being tipped as hot favorites. Miss Hong Kong, Kayi Cheung honesty thinks that this year's quality is high and is satisfy with making the top 10.

Miss New York sprains her right ankle

Xuzhou's temperature was only a few degrees, so delegates wore white coats to prevent cold. #17 Miss New York, Stacy Wang sprained her right ankle during the filming and had to rest aside. Stacy had danced since she was six and has learned ballet, tango, and Chinese dance. She laughed "Two, three weeks ago I injured my right ankle due to dancing and it did not fully heal, can't believe this time I got injured again. Luckily I can still walk. It shouldn't be a big problem." Reporters asked "Are you worried about the competition?" and she said "No worries because it is still three weeks until the finals."

Miss Paris being the most "in"

The first ever Paris representive at the pageant, Oceana Zhu combed the most "in" haircut of the season making her standout, being asked participating at MCI for the first time, she stated that win or lose is not important, it is the experience of meeting friends the most important. She hopes to have a happy training experience. 17 year old Tina Jia Wong of Montreal is a Italian and Chinese mix and is the most youngest contestant at the pageant (also like Vicky Ng in 2006 and where she withdrawed....). She has a bright smile and white skin, and was asked whether she has confidence of winning. She replied that she will try her best and the result has no relationship, she is coming here to play. She also told the press that she is a girl who likes to eat and wiil do more exercise to keep fit.

Local contestant Kayi Cheung feels that this year's delegates asked her about pageant experience (remainder Kayi participated in MCV 2005, MSHK 2007, and Miss World 2007), and boasted that this year's quality is very high. She laughs: "If I can make top 10 I am satisfied", (do you have confidence in winning?). She stated they (the other delegates) were all winner's material, so she will not have too much thoughts.

Delegates arrive in Hong Kong

Yesterday a number delegates arrived in Hong Kong for the pageant. Most of them were from Canada and USA. Their names and information were not given to the press yet and according to The Sun Newspaper (

),

Miss Chinese Toronto, Liang Wang was asked "What is your name?" Liang did not reveal it to the reporters and said she was has to ask TVB first (Smart indeed. It is so easy to know her chinese name though reporters, go to fairchildtv.com...). A Canadian delegate was dubbed as the lookalike or young girl version of Ada Choi (Miss Hong Kong 1991 2nd runner up). The girl is identified by Pageant Beauties as Miss Chinese Montreal, Ting Jia Lorigiano. She caught the press attention for her tall figure and smile. Like Liang she was unwilling to tell her information. Will she be a big favorite like Vicky Ng in 2006 (also from Montreal)? It will be found out soon.

Special Awards:

Miss Photogenic: #4 Liang Wang

Miss Friendship: #5 Joey Zhang

Miss Talent: #9 Linda Tam
Charming Communicator: #3 Jennifer Ni
Miss Classic Fitness: #4 Liang Wang
Miss Vitality: #10 Carol Zuo

Comments: Overall the results were deserving. #4 Liang has been a favorite from the start and during the pageant, she delivered a excellent performance. #2 Ivy was predicted by Pageant Beauties to finish as 1st runner up and indeed she took it. #10 Carol took second runner up and she had a good performance too. She finished sixth place on our list, just missing the top 5 alternates. Misses of the pageant were definitely #6 Cindy, #3 Jennifer, and #5 Joey. #6 Cindy was very good in interview but the hosts kept on challenging her in the conversation which may have led to unplacement. #3 Jennifer had a lot of pressure as her sister was Elva Ni, Miss Chinese Toronto 2005 and top 5 finalist at Miss Chinese International 2006. Due to that Jennifer performed did not perform the best out of the group. She won the Charming Communicator award, making Elva and her the only pair of sisters to win awards at the pageant. Pageant Beauties' Miss Chinese Toronto 2007, #5 Joey also made a average performance which has led to her unplacement. Joey was voted Miss Friendship though by the other contestants. #4 Liang Wang, 18 year old student standing at 5'7" will represent Toronto at the Miss Chinese International 2008 pageant to be helded in Foshan next year. Congratulations to all winners!

Miss Friendship Ambassador 2008 Results:

Winner, Miss Friendship Ambassador 2008: Nancy Yinan Xu
1st runner up, Miss Friendship Ambassador 2009: Nancy Kwong
2nd runner up: Angelica Zhang
Special Awards:
Miss Photogenic: Angelica Zhang
Miss Congeniality: Shirley Wen

The Miss Friendship Ambassador 2008 pageant was helded on October 28, 2007 in Chicago. Nine contestants competed for the crown and in the end, Nancy Yinan Xu was the winner. Nancy stands at 5'9" and is 21 years old. She was named Miss Friendship Ambassador 2008 and will represent Chicago at Miss Chinese International 2008. Another Nancy, Nancy Kwong was named 1st runner up. As the pageant is helded every two years and Miss Chinese International is helded every year, the top 2 competes at MCI. She will hence represent Chicago at Miss Chinese International 2009. Other pageants who have the same system are Seattle and Calgary. Second runner up was Angelica Zhang who was also named Miss Photogenic. The same thing also occurred in 2006's pageant helded in 2005 where the second runner up also won Miss Photogenic.

2nd runner up: #2 Ivy Hou

Top 5 finalists: #6 Cindy Lin Yan and #4 Liang Wang

Comments:

Hard to pick this year. Quite an even group and anybody can take it all. Even the most educated and tall might lose out. However Pageant Beauties chose #5 Joey Zhang as PB's Miss Chinese Toronto 2007. Joey is the tallest out of the whole group and will stand out. However many favorites from behind, like say #3 Jennifer. Jennifer is the sister of Miss Chinese Toronto 2005 Elva Ni. Will Fairchild crown another Ni sister? However she is strong. #2 Ivy also stands out and might take it all. One of the most prettiest delegates at the pageant, she is a favorite to also win. In the top 5 are #6 Cindy and #4 Liang. They are also strong alternates to the top 3. Performers at the show include Michael Tong Mun Lung who was once a TVB actor. The pageant will be broadcasted live on Fairchild TV at 8:30 p.m. Eastern time. Who will succeed Miss Chinese Toronto 2006, Sherry Chan?
