The pageant will held at Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia between February 22-27, according to Ko Htet Wai Yan, an organizer from Elegant Myanmar.
“A proposal was made last year by Myanmar to contest in the pageant as Myanmar has a rich culture and traditions, but it is was not ready to take part in 2015. Thus, we plan to contest in 2016,” said Ko Htet Wai Yan.
The two representatives were selected from among a hundred candidates.
“I will try my hardest to show the best of our country. I haven’t chosen a national costume. For the sport aspect of the contest I have chosen to take part in running and have planned to show my talent by a dancing Myanmar traditional dance called Tha Ngal Daw. I will try my utmost to bring honour to my country,” said Thadoe Tayza, a male representative of the pageant.
The Elegant Myanmar Organization was founded by Ko Htet Wai Hin and Ko Christ Smit on November of 2015, while it will the first time Myanmar has been represented in the aforementioned beauty pageant.
