Miss VSAM 2011, the first beauty pageant for Vietnamese students in Malaysia, was held in Kuala Lumpur on August 20, with the attendance of many Vietnamese students from universities in the city and nearby areas.
In the final round of the competition, nine contestants chosen from Vietnamese students attending Malaysian universities took part in traditional long dress (ao dai), evening gown, and talent contests, as well as personal interviews.
Singing and dancing performances by both Vietnamese and international students during the pageant left a strong impression on the audience. ‘Hello Vietnam’ sung by a Malaysian singer received particularly warm applause.
Miss VSAM 2011 was organized by the Vietnam Students Association in Malaysia with sponsorship from the Vietnamese embassy, the Vietnam Airlines representative office in Malaysia, and the representative office of PetroVietnam in Kuala Lumpur.
