she's not going to make it in the 1st round, too oriental looking. another year with a blah miss thailand.


ma maa. .. (((no not saying mama))) nihongo. wakarimasu nee


I watched her interview segment on Tinimochit, she's a volleyball player from changwat Nong Khai. Her and her mom did not tell her dad that she would be competing in this because he hates these kinds of pageants, well he sure will be surprise now that she won lol.

I think she looks ok in some pictures and pretty in others. Last year's Miss Thailand, Kwang Farung, was much prettier and probably the prettiest that they've sent for a long time she even made it to the top 15 at Miss Universe 2007.

i think she's pretty in here .. sometime, she looks like she have uni-brows.
yeah i agree, does she have a uni-brow? i would think that in a beauty pageant, esp one that's broadcasted nation-wide, that they would at least shave it.

I think she's ok..But I like Kwang better..Kwang was actually the prettiest so far like someone said above..Other then that..The ones before her were all a disappointment..


Memories with Oil from his U.S. Tour in Nov 2009!
I don't think she will make the top 20 for Miss Universe 2008. She's pretty, but now WOW pretty...
