Worse comes to worse allow her to mix all together, 'cham cham' Hokkien, English, Mandarin.. whatever she has.
At least it will sound more natural to us. And the translator can have a hell of a time and the international audience will be thrilled.
Maybe who knows? She will be crowned!
look from 9:12 onwards... LOL... hehe...
Logging Off. "You have 2,631 messages stored, of a total 400 allowed." don't PM me.
hmm.. my impression of her is that she is quite nice & friendly.. At least she is camera friendly. Some contestants sees camera and turned away! Not sure about whether its the same at the finals thou.. At the semis many contestants see "non-official" photographer no up.. and won't look at the camera for >0.1sec..
She's definitely 1 of the best, if not the best, in That Contest.
With an appearance to match?.. hmm..
What's so scary about the/that fact?
Others may feel that it is not a good decision.. but it could be the best decision.. maybe?

I take my hat off! Wah your respondibility damn siong, man! Have to scrutinise the screen and postings 24hours non-stop... if I were you I would have to open another window roaming the web for at least some shows that are more entertaining than people killing each other with words.
Hmmm sounds like most of you frown on her heavy Singlish Accent but to me as a Chinese guy in the U.S. where so many of our Chinese girls sound whiter than the white girls here, I found her accent cute and uniquely Singaporean.
Here, allow me to OT a little bit:
There are Singaporeans who speak good English, not Queen's English, but a cosmopolitan and pan-Asian (or something to that effect) kind of English that is pleasant to the ears, unpretentious, and easily understandable to all English-speaking populations world-wide.
It is inevitable that with overwhelming exposure to US and UK media, the younger generation picks up a little bit of accents here and there, and mixes these into our Singapore's English. I have no problem with that.
I think one should draw the line at whether it is one's natural way of speech or not. For if not, forcing oneself to adopt a feigned foreign accent during critical moments like Miss World Pageant is only courting disaster.
Of course, the part about her wits is another chapter all together that I am certain other passionate CS members would deal with in more detail.
wow i didnt expect her to be so popular... i guess clubsnaps have so many fans of her. like some people say, there is no such thing as bad publicity. publicity is publicity regardless.
Pick anyone to send/escort Ris back to Singapore?
ok.. just joking.. But really, I guess you've over-rated the SQ girls. Maybe they can speak.. but.. the competition is not about hiding behind a screen and just let the audience hear them. Visual presentation is important too. And having taken SQ flights, I do not agree with your suggestion..
