Was so honoured to be invited as one of the judges for a glamourous beauty pageant event Miss Singapore Lumiere International World on last Sunday 19 March 2017! 😀 Not my first time as a beauty judge nor my first time attending a beauty pageant, yet nonetheless was so thrilling for me. It felt like a long way since my own participation as a contestant in Ms Singapore 7 years ago. 🙂 (Betcha have yet to hear from a judge’s point of view.)
Outfit of the day~
All of us judges took a group shot before the event started! Amongst us were business owners, a hotel general manager, a lawyer and ex-beauty queens! Heavyweight affair indeed…
Tiffiny Yang Aesthetics is very proud to be a part of this event!
The beauty pageant started with a sizzling hot dance by the dazzling ladies – don’t blink:
Next was the bikini section. I thought it was so creative of the organisers to give it a Victoria’s Secret kind of twist, where the girls had to improve on their bikini designs on their own for the stage that night. Some of them were really creative and well done – too bad I did not manage to capture all on camera as I was also busy filling out the score sheet. 😀
Watching the ladies strut their stuff on stage in flowing evening gowns made me reminiscent of the time I also took the stage to compete for the single coveted title and won Ms Singapore Universe in 2011. The toughest part about contesting in a beauty pageant was being under immense stress throughout the show and yet looking confident and effortless onstage. This time, the onus was (partly) on me (and my fellow judges) to decide who should stand victorious and who should humbly concede defeat!
After much deliberation among the judges…
Top 3 winners for Miss Lumiere Singapore 2017! (Left: Lyn; top: Kato Song, bottom: Dini)
Had the honour to crown the second runner up that evening, Miss Dini. Incidentally, I was the one who questioned her Q&A and I thought she answered well. 😀

Received a token of appreciation for appearing as judge for Miss Lumiere Singapore 2017. Most heartfelt thanks for Ms Justina Quek and kudos to a very well done event! Thoroughly enjoyed myself that night and am so happy for all the beautiful ladies who participated — you are all winners for being up on stage and shining with confidence throughout that night, regardless of the outcome. 🙂
