PETALING JAYA: Miss World Malaysia Alexis Sueann Seow who will be representing Malaysia at Miss World 2019 in London on December 14 was in a sticky situation as she could not find any sponsor for her heavy baggage fare which costs around RM20,000 (around USD5000).
Luckily, Malaysia Airlines stepped in on Wednesday and agreed to sponsor her to travel with her 8 bags to London for the pageant’s grand finals.
MAS has also upgraded her economy class seat to business class.
“I needed to take at least eight bags as the pageant events last for about a month.
“There are lots of heavy costumes and gowns to take along.
“The national costume and headgear itself took up so much space.
“The baggage fare came up to about RM20,000!” the Selangor, 24-year-old said in an interview.
Seow, who is a fashion blogger, fitness model and emcee, was crowned Miss World Malaysia 2018 on Oct 6 after beating 19 other Malaysian contestants.
