As expected, heavy favorite Paweensuda Drouin was named Miss Universe Thailand 2019 in Thunderdome at Muang Thing Thani last night! She will now represent Thailand in Miss Universe 2019.
1st Runner-Up is Miriam Sornprommas
2nd Runner-Up is Thanatchaphon Boonsang
Fahsai was crowned by Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.
On a sidenote, I can still remember that fateful night of May 10, 2018 when Paweensuda Drouin returned to the Philippines to judge Mr & Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018. She was treated to a Filipino buffet at La Fiesta by the late Col. Ricardo Nolasco of Hannah’s Beach Resort and Convention Center. It was during dessert when the subject about her joining Miss Universe Thailand 2019 was discussed at length. The encouragement was just unanimous among everyone present – including ‘Mayor’ Ronald Dominguez, Sir Bobby Casa, Ocsalon Ydnar, Brix Vera, Andy Cayna, RL De Leon Lacanienta, Jed Velasco, Lisel Carangan and yours truly.
And the rest is history as Fahsai – eventually encouraged by our own Miss Universe Catriona Gray (who was still Miss Universe Philippines 2018 at the time) – went on to join her country’s nationals.
And now she is Miss Universe Thailand 2019.
Congratulations my dear! I’m so proud of you!
