Yesterday this year’s Miss Asia Pageant held the first round of interviews for the Hong Kong and Macau districts. The 43 candidates haven’t even formally entered the beauty contest yet and already has to wear a bikini for the media to take photos. This year, the contest’s restrictions were again relaxed with no age requirement, so the 43 candidates age ranged from 17 to 47 years of age. There were 18 candidates that were 25 and older and the average age was 24 which is considered ‘Elderly Beauty Contest’.

When 47 year old (Koon Suet Fa) introduced herself to the judges, she mentioned she participated in the contest before back in 1995. Back then, she wondered if she would have the opportunity to participate again when she’s 47? She was surprised to see her wish come true, so she took the opportunity to fulfill her dream. During the interview, she felt very nervous, but still had confidence. Asked if she’ll have special treatment by ATV since she works as their image consultant? She said: “It has already been 11 years, ATV changed bosses several times, of course there won’t be special treatment. I just feel the judges will be very fair.”
