Miss Singapore Rachel Kum Tweets her journey to Bahamas
Miss Singapore Universe 2009 Rachel Kum tweets in her twitter account that Miss Mexico Karla Carillo was her first co-delegate she met in person. She and Karla were on the same flight from Miami to Bahamas. She said that Karla is her first friend in the contest.
Rachel also added that her flight from Singapore to Miami took a grueling 28 hours because of baggage delay.
On the other hand, Miss Guam Racine Manley is Rachel's roommate in Bahamas.
Meanwhile, below are Rachel's national costume and evening gown. The national costume was chosen by the Singaporean through an online poll. The chosen costume was designed by a second-year fashion student Zhang Xiaoqing.
