I’m actually quite pleased that our very own Shamcey was chosen to join 3 other ladies to grace the activity. It only goes to show that her natural warmth and friendliness is shining through. In fact, many candidates – such as Misses Brazil and China – are finding her nice enough to tweet their liking. I wouldn’t be surprised if she finds herself effortlessly gunning for the Miss Congeniality award. Of course, we all know that the ultimate target is the Miss Universe crown. But if one can be sincerely affable all throughout, why not? In beauty pageants where intrigues and internal politics abound in the sidelines, it is refreshing to see true friendships bloom in the process. Go, go, go Shamcey!
