Miss Singapore World
Friday, December 28, 2012 @ 4:44 AM |Hi everyone!
Firstly, a belated Merry Christmas! I am terribly sorry for the lack of updates, been terribly busy! Now, before I start blogging about my new photoshoots and Christmas celebrations, I want to blog about something which I feel is more important - taking part in Miss Singapore World 2013.
If you have been following my updates on facebook and twitter or have been checking out Yahoo! news page regularly, you would know I've taken part in this pageant.
I'm in the first 15 seconds of this video here:
I'm third from the left.
Check out some of the mean comments here:
Some comments are such as "This one like kena laughing Gas already.. Smile until the ear" "haha.... big tummy wanna compete.....ugh" basically a lot of them are commenting that my smile is too wide and my tummy is too big. I just want to make one thing clear... THAT IS NOT MY TUMMY. THAT IS MY RIBCAGE. :( I might have arched my back a bit too much.
Just for everybody's information haha!
I am not affected by any of the mean comments, I will take note of every comment and try to improve! Such as not arching my back so much and not smiling so wide. There are a minority of nice comments and they are very much appreciated, thank you!
These are not all of the contestants, what I heard is that there will tentatively be 30~40 contestants in total and we will all first vie for the 19 finalists position before officially competing for the crown of Miss Singapore World 2013. I have not gotten through to the finalists position yet, the date for the competition is unknown too but it should be around January 2013. I will post updates on my facebook page!
Many people mix up Miss Singapore World and Miss Singapore Universe, they are two COMPLETELY different pageants. I joined Miss Singapore WORLD and not Miss Singapore Universe.
What is the difference between Miss Singapore World and Miss Singapore Universe?
-Miss Universe is American-owned whereas Miss World is British-owned.
-Miss World started earlier, in 1951 and Miss Universe in 1953.
-There is no minimum height requirement for Miss World but there is a minimum height requirement of 1.65m for Miss Universe.
Why/how did I decide to join the Miss Singapore World 2013?
I decided to join the competition spontaneously after an invitation through facebook. I wouldn't dare dream of taking part in such a large-scale pageant in the past. Ever since my freelance modeling career has been improving and since I got together with my current boyfriend, I have been gaining more confidence. Whenever I think I don't look good in a certain picture my boyfriend would always be there to assure me that I look great and there's nothing to worry about :') I have also been getting compliments that I have potential to be a good model if I continue working hard. All these love and support have given me so much more confidence. I've come to a point that I don't care about anything anyone says so I believe that I would not be affected by mean judgmental people and their comments. I think that me believing in myself and having my close friends and family's support is most important. :)
Do I think I have what it takes to be crowned Miss Singapore World 2013?
Firstly, I think every single one of the girls possesses the calibre to win this pageant. I do not believe that I am better than anyone else. Everyone is unique and has their own merits, it's a fair competition. I think winning or losing is not important, what is important is whether I have put the opportunity given into good use, the experience, the confidence I gain and the friends I make throughout the pageant. I believe that I have the qualities to be in the pageant and I will try my very best. :)
Having said all that, do support me by liking my humble facebook page here. >>> Jessica Lim - Miss Singapore World 2013 p6 <<< Every "like" and support will be greatly appreciated!
That's all for today's update! Thank you so much for reading!
