Well done young lass. You won for two reasons, one, you entered the Miss Teen Thailand competition and two, you have what it takes and took, to be a winner. Well done and may you have many more successes in the future. Well done young lass.

Don't fret. I assume it was addressed to her friends, not to you, larry.


Sorry, you did not react to my question to your NEWS-Mail sentence regarding that young lady.
" A 16-year-old British International school student has won Thailand's Miss Teen competition, bringing with it 300,000 baht. Her mother is Thai and her father is Australian."
Mistakes can happen, but just to ignore it?
I wrote a bunch of people and in Facebook about that story, the Australien father and Phuket Wan.
Including the fact that all bigger Thai Miss competitions in TH 2012 had been won by Mixed women. Miss Thai World father
from Germany, Miss Thai Universe father, from Austria, Miss Thai Teen mother from SA.

Editor Comment:

We didn't ignore it, Alfred, we corrected the error immediately, so fast most people would not have seen the mistake. The fact is, most people assume the father will be Western and the mother will be Thai. Confusion arose because the family does have Australian connections.


Oh my goodness, even though that was a fb status, she needs to watch what she says now. Becoming Miss Teen Thailand means an end to privacy since she is in the public eye now.
