    You cannot just send a representative unless she fits into the criteria specified.

    Yes Saman, Shira went to the contest in Athens way back in the 1960's after she was crowned Miss Ceylon. Dont you forget that.

    When we were in SL, we thought our girls are the most beautiful, but when you go overseas, one can see how beautiful the girls from other countries are.

    Same goes to men too.

    That generalisation is false - what about jacqueline and others before and after her? This time it was just a pure choice by our stupid judges - they should be shot.

    our girls are too short - and most of them have either a bulging belly or the other extreme, they look malnourished.

    Yeti Tuesday, 24 August 2010 04:37 AM

    She smuggled herself across the boarder into the US???

    Our beauty queen was not properly trained by our event organisers. She was beautiful. But it was aparent that she is inexperienced. I have seen in India how they bring their normal good looking girls to the level of beauty queens and how much of training they go through. In vain.

    Bakamoona Tuesday, 24 August 2010 03:49 AM

    What happened to our beauty queen?
