Miss Tourism Pageant 2005 Kuching Show

Popular Malaysian blogger Kenny Sia, armed with “a (borrowed) huge ass digital SLR camera,” crashes the Miss Tourism Pageant 2005 Kuching Preview Show and returns with lots of pictures. The event was not without some controversy; Miss Ethiopia was quarantined at the airport because she failed to produce a medical certificate and Miss Tibet refused to compete because the Chinese government forced to enter the competition as Miss Tibet-China.
