Miss World Malaysia Alexis Sueann Seow is off to London with all her bags with the help and support of Malaysia Airlines. The 24-year-old could not find any sponsor to pick up her baggage for the Miss World 2019 pageant scheduled in London on Dec 14.
Malaysian Airlines stepped in showing an incredible amount of support which has given her a huge boost for the pageant’s grand finals.
She said “I needed to take at least eight bags as the pageant events which will continue 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!” She said her preparations for the event had to be rushed as she was among the last finalists to be crowned.
Seow’s mother Doreen Wan thanked Malaysian Airlines for its generosity.
She said “There are the preliminary events such as dances of the world and charity dinners to attend. Alexis has to bring many types of attire because she is representing the country and the spotlight will be on her,”.
Wan said she visited the Malaysian Airlines office and met chief executive Izham Ismail to appeal for a waiver in the baggage charges. She was surprised and relieved to find that her request was approved even before she had left the building. Also to her surprise, Seow’s economy class seat has also been upgraded to business class.
The multi-talented winner is a fashion blogger, fitness model, emcee, TV host, and actress and beat 19 other contestants to receive the coveted crown from Miss World Malaysia 2018 Larissa Ping on Oct 6.
