East is the new standard for beauty?

I couldn't believe my eyes and my ears. But it is a reality. Miss Japan was crowned Miss Universe last night in Mexico. This is the first time as far as I can remember that an Asian has won an international beauty crown (India excluded, that is). Someone correct me if I am wrong. What makes it even more unbelievable is that Miss Korea was also in the top five. And Miss Japan beat out girls in the mould of traditional beauty queens - Miss Venezuela and Miss Brazil - countries famed for producing beauty pageant winners.

IMHO, I found Miss Korea to be prettier than Miss Japan. Click thru on the links to see their sexy swimsuit photos. What say you?

It's not the first time. In 1998, our own Lina Teoh succeed in grabbing the 2nd runner up in Miss World held in Seychelles. In the yr 2002, the yr which Miss Russia was crowned the new Miss Universe, Miss China got the 2nd runner up.

angel said...

I too agree that Ms. Korea is cuter. And I'm so suspicious about the results... hmmmmmm... you think it was Ando........??? Haha :p

a^ben said...

i think miss japan is cuter :D

Wennnn said...

Hmmm funny how come Miss Korea dun get selected becoz Miss Korea is more busty ah!!! Dun U think so???

ehon said...

i still don't believe this. last yr's miss japan should have won but she did not, and this yr miss japan should not but she did. grrr... i think hiro must have done something with the result, SERIOUSLY!!

sengkor said...

Winn said...

yeah yeah..

miss korea is hotter!!!
but maybe miss japan has got other qualities? maybe she speaks better england?

Giddy Tiger said...

I couldn't believe it either...I thought Miss Brazil should have won. Though I was laughing so hard at Ando's question :P

narrowband said...

No surprise. I love eastern beautiess!

Paris Beaverbanks said...

Oh my! Yay for Oriental Beauties! *preens* *falls over laughing*

eastcoastlife said...

Don't you all know the inside stories of beauty pageants? Ms Japan's moans and groans sounds sexciting and she's willing to try all positions. :)

She's a beauty. Hoorah for the East!

May said...

LOL @ eastcoastlife's comment!!

I had a feeling it would be an Asian this year. Japan vs. Korea... hmmm... ok lah, looks go to Korea. but maybe Japan would be good for better politics in the future, eh? ;-)

Pink Elle said...

I know, I was shocked to hear Ms Japan won! The day of the heavyweights (hardly!) of Ms Venezuela and the exotic Latin Americans are gone. Hear to the new dawn of the Asian beauty! ;)

Chen said...

i tarak watch Miss Universe semalam..
busy watching ah boy zzzz :P

LOLOLOL at ECL's comment

rinnah said...

kyh: 5 well-informed hugs for you!!!

Wow... you've certainly done your homework. But what I meant was it's the first time an Asian has actually won the title. *grin*

cutiepie: 3 hot hugs for you!!

From what I hear, you're a beauty yourself! *wink*

l b: 1 lurve-ly hug for you!

So which is it? Miss Japan or cutiepie? *grin*

I guess from your next comment that Miss Japan won your heart?

zewt: Should look at Miss Korea! She is prettier! *grin*

While the east, envies the west. Grass is always greener on the other side...

angel: I think the results were Hiro's doing at Ando's request! Hehehe...

a^ben: Really? I liked Miss Korea more... :o)

wennnn: Hmm... that's a good point. Busty girls do get extra points during the judging, hor? *wink*

ehon: I didn't see last year's Miss Universe worrr... A Hiro conspiracy is beginning to take shape... hehehe.

sengkor: Hahaha... I bet you'd like to have a sushi roll with Miss Japan, eh? *wink*

winn: I cannot remember what they answered during the Q&A session liao, but they all used interpreter, so cannot judge their standard of English!

giddy tiger: I was thinking Miss Brazil winner, Miss Venezuela runner-up, Miss Korea 2nd runner-up...

Talk about making the most of his 15mins of fame, eh? Kekekekekeke!

narrowband: So where's your eastern beauty? *nudge nudge wink wink*

paris beaverbanks: Yay for us oriental babes! *picks up Paris and preens together*

eastcoastlife: Really? *perks up* Now I know how some girls get to the semi-finals... Wakakakaka!

We are Eastern women. We are hot! Hehehe.

may: Aiyoh... beauty pageants and politics don't mix... beauty queens got no brains one! Hahaha.

But it's refreshing to see an Asian at the top for once!

pink elle: I think the whole world is shocked at the results!

I'm thinking a lot more people will recognize Asian beauty this year...

chen: Ah Boy is more beautiful than Miss Universe! Just look at those compelling big brown eyes... the adorable cute look... sure win one!

narrowband said...

My elusive eastern beauty still playing hide n seek with me. It's only a matter of time before fate brings us together. Wahaha~..

rinnah said...

narrowband: Keep on looking! There are so many beauties out there, there's gotta be one that's right for you. *wink*
