Remember how I promised a blogpost about my experience at the Miss Singapore World Finals? Well, there is actually a list of other things I want to write about as well. But since this one is done up already, let me just link you here!
School was really nice to invite me to blog on the school site -
The Day I entered Miss Singapore World:
I never imagined myself in that world of big smiles, perfect hair and tiaras – let alone one of Singapore’s “Big 4” pageants – but this September I found myself in a neat line of girls in gowns, on that very stage, at Miss Singapore World.
It still feels a little surreal. I’d woken up one morning to a Facebook message inviting me to join Miss Singapore World. It was one of those “What if?” moments – they had already completed a pre-judging segment, and the night itself was only a few weeks away, but I decided to go with a “Why not!” and put my best stiletto-ed foot forward.
The pageant night came all too soon. As we stood in a line backstage readying ourselves to take the stage, I tried to calm my nerves. I’d walked in fashion shows a few times, but pageants were a whole new challenge – who hasn’t seen YouTube videos of embarrassing Q&A segments and girls tripping over gowns at pageants?

The biggest surprise of all was my little brother Nick turning up at the stage. “Kim, Kim, come on, let’s take a selfie!” he went, in his usual way. “You’re here!” I shrieked. I hadn’t told my family to attend the event since tickets had been sold out. But there he was! “How could I miss it?” he said, as he took the selfie – my favourite photo from that night.
