Goh, at 158 cm (5’ 2”) tall, was in spell-binding form when she beat off strong challenge from 10 other girls to grab the Miss Malaysia Petite World 2017 title. This singer from Skudai, Johor is happy and excited as it was her dream to win the crown. Her interests include swimming and travelling.
Loh, with a height of 150 cm (4’ 11”) competed against seven other women to clinch the Mrs Malaysia Petite World 2017 title. The mother of two kids aged 7 and 12 said winning the title was a huge achievement as she never expected to be crowned. The hair salon owner from Kepong, Selangor has proven her worth and hopes her profile as Mrs Malaysia Petite World would help to attract more attention and find new customers for her salon business. Loh enjoys hobbies such as dancing, shopping, travelling and spending time with family.
