  1. As a follower of all sort of beauty pageants and titles, I am excited to see World Miss University here in Malaysia. We have plenty of beautiful girls inside and outside and there will be more opportunities for them to shine.

    1. Malaysia is the first Muslim country organizing Miss World University International final. Hope others will know more about Malaysia and its culture through this.

  2. I love watching pageants and admiring those beautiful dresses and how poise they are, and this is the first time i heard of a Muslim pageant! Omg this is exciting! I hope this kind of pageant will adopt here in the Philippines :)

    1. It's not a Muslim pageant but will be held for the first time at a Muslim country, Malaysia.
