Besides 50 outfits for the pageant, Thuy took along a painstakingly crafted sand painting weighing seven kilos for the charity auction and a pot of cactus, symbolizing the Vietnamese people’s will and ability, for the day of planting at Garden World.
Thuy is confident of performing well in the Miss Talent quest, for which she will do a traditional dance of Viet Nam that she has practiced to perfection.
She’s also happy with her English and feels she will be able to communicate what she means in the Q&A segment.
At the moment, the 100-plus young women hoping to be the 2006 Miss World are touring Poland and vying for the minor titles of Miss Beach Beauty, Talent, Sport, and Beauty with a Purpose in the lead-up to the final night on Saturday 30th September.
