Photo blog: The first-ever Malaysian Sino Queen competition

The first ever Sino Beauty Queen which had participants representing all 13 districts of Sabah, was held at the Covered Tennis Court, Sutera Harbour, Kota Kinabalu.

One of the prerequisites of the competition is that the contestant must be the child of a marriage between a Chinese, and a Kadazan, Dusun, Murut. Hence, they are known as Sino Bumiputera.

Sutera Harbour in Kota Kinabalu glitters for the occasion
A full house for the historic occasion that acknowledges dan lain-lain
She sashays on the runway
The writer was bewitched and forgot to take down names
The winner, we think
While others adorn exquisite traditional wear
Not Malay, Chinese or Indian, just gorgeous
A pose to mesmerise
The pearl of the orient


Flaunting beautiful batik wear
Number seven and we're in heaven!
Diamonds are a girl's best friend; or she is the diamonds' best friend
She might have been arrested if she'd worn this in July
Hail the Sino beauty Queen!
