Journey of Mrs Singapore World 2015/2016
It has been almost a year since I was crowned the 1st Runner-up for Mrs Singapore World last December 2015. The decision to join the pageant was the best decision I have ever made which has added colours to my life and also, discovering a new me.
Was at Miss Singapore Beauty Pageant 2016 over the weekend and it has brought back so many memories!
By far life has been great for me, blessed with a supportive family and a group of friends who has been there for me except the year of 2012. That was the darkness chapter of my life, having to face many big decisions. I have lost all my confident and at some point, I didn't want to step out of the house. But with the encouragement from close friends and parents, I am glad to tide thru.
And so, how did this pageant thing came about and what made me walk out from my comfort zone?
It was one particular day in September 2015 that I came across the audition for Mrs Singapore World. Although I was keen to join but I was quite hesitant and have doubts about my ability.
Back then, I was a typical working mum, working day to day and on weekends, swamped with house works and kids. Not that I wasn't happy about my life but at one point, you will just think back and asked if you have done anything for yourself. Watching the kids growing up is definitely a blessing but I felt I needed to step out.
Secondly, besides than stepping out, I have wanted to fulfil my dreams that I have in the younger days and also, to see if this platform could help me to reach out to more people in need.
And so I went. The 2 months spent during the pageant journey was totally amazing! From catwalks to posing to talent show and learning how to present yourself in front of cameras. Never before, I came to understand the importance of taking care of yourself! Ha, from the minute you are awake, the skin care routine to what you eat, to what u drink and what time you sleep!
From my 1st Talent show that I flunk totally to stepping out in the International stage performing a solo magic show without any glitch was one of my greatest achievement. The experience I had during the Mrs Asia International held in KL was awesome!
Throughout this amazing journey, one thing for sure is I have learnt to be a confident woman, discovering a new me and believing that dreams do come through.
You can read more about this amazing Mrs Singapore World journey in my older post.
Winning of the titles and sub-awards will definitely remain the highlights of my life. I am so proud of all the achievements and happy that I can share all these beautiful stories and pictures to my grand children when I am old.
A big thanks to the ERM team again, especially Ms Angela Tay, who has given me so many opportunities that changed my life entirely. Able to know all the ERM queens and fellow contestants is extremely a blessing. Throughout this one year, many has shared with me their stories, experiences and that really motivates me to be a better person. I have learnt so much about life and some, had become good friends.
And.. wait no more friends! Step out of your comfort zone to join the upcoming Mrs Singapore World 2016/2017.
Believe me, regardless if you win or not, the experience you gain and journey will bring no regrets to your life!
