Last night…

… as I was writing this post, I was watching the Miss Universe 2009 and at the same time doing my office work from the laptop. It was a repeat show as the live tele-cast was shown in Star World channel at 9am yesterday morning.

It was indeed making me losing focus in doing my office work but nothing can stop me from missing out watching one of my favorite tv show on earth – The Miss Universe. I never fail to watch it every year as a matter of fact. 🙂

I liked watching beautiful ladies.
I liked their clothing.
I liked their make-ups.
I liked their shoes.
I liked the way their walks, their poses, their smiles.
I liked the way they answered question brilliantly.
I liked to know respective beauty contestant background and their objective.
I liked to learn the way the organizer organized such a big event too.

Most of all, I liked it very much when the moment of crowning the new Miss Universe with the diamond tiara and doing the ‘queen wave’ to the crowd.

I guess that would be every lady dream or even fantasy coz I do. ;p

But one thing I do noticed something different as compared to the 70s, 80s, 90s and the millennium beauty contest that the millennium version of Miss Universe allowed plastic surgeries on the contestants. That’s why you get to see almost the entire contestant had breast implant. Of course, there are other plastic surgeries done like nose job, jaw, high cheeks, big eyes, full lips, etc and these are some ‘modifications’ that are not so obvious to be seen (except if you are plastic surgeon) as compared to breast implant.

To me, it is quite sad to know the fact of ‘modified’ beauties as I see and feel that its not wrong or shame on being proud of your own ‘in-completeness’ of your physical appearance. Human beings are not always perfect in terms of physical appearance and also mentally. We just need to learn to accept that fact and I feel it should apply the same to the Miss Universe as well.

Because apart from judging on the physical beauty, the contestant intelligence is also being tested. By the end of it, we want to crown a beauty with brain.

 Probably Donald Trump should re-consider that fact. 🙂

    I thought mods are not allowed for pageants? Did they just changed that recently as I noticed this last pageant, had some enlarged chests. Hmmm.

    gallivanter – yes, mods are allowed nowadays but not sure since when. i noticed the ‘perfect round shape breast’ among the contestant 3 years ago though.
