Thoughts #BeautyCamp

As I sit on my bunk bed tonight, looking across the window; witnessing the city full of lights under the dark night. Reminiscing how much I miss home, my loved ones and my bed.

"Its been 26days here in Beauty Camp", I told myself. And yes it has indeed been 26days here in Beauty Camp! Time flies doesn't it? Truth be told, for the past 26days I have achieved so much that I myself never knew I could. I never knew I could take good pictures, I never knew I could strike a good pose, I never knew people would actually remember me for what I have done and I never knew being a Beauty Queen was so tough!

It was never easy; to presentable all the time. It takes so much hardwork, effort and practice to allow yourself to be comfortable in front of the audiences.

And throughout the entire journey in Beauty Camp, I have found myself; in so many different ways. I have learnt to be a stronger person; physically, mentally and emotionally. I realized that its not all about just winning the title, but so many petty petty things that you pick up along the journey. Thats what makes you stronger every single time.

And tonight I told myself "If something is bound to happen, it will happen. For the right person, at the right time. And for the best reason".

Beauty Camp has been such an amazing journey that will never be erased from my memory. If there's one thing that I would change right now. I'll say " Send me back to the time when I answered that question". I could have done so much better. My fear overtook me.

God, grant me strength and determination. I CAN DO THIS.

#Beauty Camp!

Greetings readers! 

Happy mid-week everybody. Hope all's good and guess what? Its already the 8th day at Beauty Camp! Everything has been pretty much smooth sailing and just to revive my blog a little, yes I know I have been abandoning it for quite sometime. But forgive me, I have just been too busy to balance my time between work and studies. Priorities first, no? Here are some updates from Beauty Camp. 

Truth be told, I am having the time of my life spending my days with the rest of the beautiful ladies in the house. With Andrea Fonseka guiding us through our days; nothing can be much more fun than being the pioneer batch of Beauty Campers! Its really amusing to see how everybody bond so well and well keep the dramas aside, when it comes it the game. I am for sure to step up my game; afterall its still a competition and I wouldn't want to be left behind ( Well, who would wanna?). However, when we're back in the house; its an entire different situation. The girls really do spend time together so well and I really hope Malaysia can see through all these amazing personalities in the house. 

Now, as I share with you my journey in Beauty Camp; don't forget to tune into Astro Hitz (channel 705) every Thursday at 3.30pm and repeats at 9pm! This is the only time you Malaysians get to see the real Malaysian girls living under one roof, in running to be the next Miss Universe Malaysia 2012. Its the first time ever any pageants in Asia has produced any reality TV Show like Beauty Camp! Be sure to catch it!  Now, we Malaysia has taken the first step! MALAYSIA BOLEH! 







As for myself, being one of the youngest, I sometimes DO feel intimidated by the rest of the girls who are far more experienced than I am.  But at the end of the day, it is the true Malaysian girl that they are searching for. It isn't the perfect girl. Lets be frank,  nobody can be perfect but one can be a perfectionist. That is a total twist in the story already. 

So, all I'm giving is my confidence and determination and hardwork. I believe that as long as I stay true to myself; nothing is impossible. And I always believed that the only way of finding the limits of the possibles is by going beyond the impossibles. 














A beauty queen isn't just about being poised and proper. She can be elegant, fun and goofy at the same time, why not? She has to be able to relate to her people, Malaysians! A girl who is able to connect to everybody and at the same time, she is able to bring herself up in front of millions. At the end of the day, beauty fades but the heart stays. I may be still young and raw, but that doesn't mean I can't soar. 

And I'm taking this opportunity to learn and progress, to build myself and to make myself a better person, a better me, a true Malaysian girl :)

Magdeline W. at Miss Universe Malaysia 2012

I never knew I would actually be REALLY doing what I am doing today. From sitting and staring at the gorgeous ladies in front of the television screen to looking into the mirror asking myself, 

"Will I ever be able to be like one of them? Wearing pretty dresses and make-up and speaking up for themselves and to impress the judges?", that was me 10 years back when I used to watch Miss Universe in front of the screen. Asking and bugging my mum about anything and everything after every annual episode. 

And who would've thought? The short-haired nerdy girl who once don't even know the meaning of beauty is now a finalist of The Miss Universe Malaysia 2012 at the age of 19. 

Honestly, I didn't see this coming my way. If it was two years ago, I'd probably be telling people " I'm not pretty enough to fit in. I'm not slim enough like the rest of the girls. I'm not as tall as them" and the rant goes on and on. 

But me being myself today, at this very point of life; I find beauty very subjective. I don't necessarily have the best looking features nor the most radiant skin to be beautiful. I don't have to be the tallest among them all nor do I have to be the best speaker to look beautiful. Like I always say " Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder" and having said that, true beauty cannot be seen physically seen but emotionally felt through the heart. 

But of course, realistically a girl, to be in a beauty pageant has got to have the basic qualifications. And by that, I am rather thankful and grateful to have God granted me this opportunity to be part of this beautiful and exciting journey. It is definitely an open road for me to find the right route.
