Miss Tibet

Tibet is a country that has been troubled with all sorts of political.
2 years ago, there was an article in BBC news saying that the Miss Tibet competition was in a crisis. Apparently, only one contestant turned up for the contest.
The only contestant, Tsering Kyi, 20, was immediately declared Miss Tibet.

“There was immense social pressure on the girls not to participate by traditional sections of the Tibetan society,” Mr Wangyal told the BBC.
But in 2002, there were more than 30 contestants.
Here are the following contestants..

But in 2004…

Ms. Tashi Yangchen w000t!!! winner of all Miss Tibet competitions! woohoo!!!
Unfortunately, Miss Tibet 2004 pulls out from the Miss Tourism 2005 pageant in Malaysia.
Excerpt from the Star newspaper
KUCHING: A controversy over the participation of a Tibetan contestant in a beauty pageant ended following her decision to pull out from the contest.
Miss Tourism 2005 organiser Alaric Soh said yesterday that Tibetan beauty queen Tashi Yangchen had decided not to participate in the pageant.
The Chinese Embassy in Kuala Lumpur had protested against Tashi’s decision to compete as Miss Tibet.

There was a particular comment that cracked me up

    Dear fan, Let me thank you all for the good words and the bad words you have commented on me in this web page. please give me a break. I am the most prettiest girl ever born in the Tibetan communities. I am confident that I will surely be selected in the final round of the Miss world pagent and then ofcourse the Miss world title.I will make each and every Tibetan proud of but there is a problem and the problem is My sponsor Lobsang Wangyal is too broke that he could not afford to buy a bottle of beer.So I need help from you guys. Please DONATE generioulsy for the Miss Tibet 2005 contest. It will be very grand. I bet. THANKS

However, in a following comment, it seems that Miss Tibet herself responded to the above comment.

    Tashi Delek to all the readers.By the way it was really great reading all the comments.I appreciate all for taking time to write on this page.Well I thought I would not comment on this page but then I am obliged to as some one under my name Tashi Yangchen has commented something above….well I think whosoever the person is why don’t you comment using your own name instead of borrowing someone else’s name…only a coward would perform such an act ….i really find it very immature…hehehe!!Anyways …thank you so much to all my well wishers for your kind appreciation.Well even those who has some negative comments to say..thanks for wasting your energy as it is not going to affect me one bit.Beware of those who write comments under others name….it’s really very funny.Any ways ..Tashi Delek…Peace!!…..Miss Tibet2004(Tashi Yangchen)
