Life after pageants

I was first persuaded to participate in a beauty pageant when I was 18. Back then, I wasn’t interested in such things, so I brushed it aside. Upon graduating, I was again persuaded to join a pageant. I was a few months shy of turning 22. At 23, I caved and entered my first pageant.

With my friend Lissy in UK. I was 21.

Simply put, pageants changed me. Some people said that they like the old me better. They want the Sue Lynn who doesn’t give two shits about how she looks and who doesn’t need to look in the mirror 5 times a day, worry about her fine lines or stresses about her flabby areas all the time. Then, there are some who like the newer and vainer me.

I was browsing through my photos on Facebook earlier, and realised just how much I have changed. But I’d like to think that the change is only on the outside, as I’m very much the same greedy girl who finishes her burgers in 5 bites or less.

The girl who walks around the house in baggy t-shirts, who never remembers which cutleries to use at a fine dining restaurant and whose idea of a chill-out session involves sitting at her favourite coffeeshop, drinking SKOL beer and eating greasy burgers to sober up.

While I’m often dressed up at events, you can find me during weekends without make-up, walking around in a singlet and shorts. And I have to say, it feels pretty damn great to be free!

    Well, I've never been in a pageant but I think it's quite normal for us girls to become more vain as we get older.
    (Nowadays, I feel naked if I leave the house without putting on my eyeliner and lipgloss! Haha…)
