SimplySxy catches up with Amanda Toh from Singapore as she shares her experience participating in Miss Universe Singapore 2013 and her beauty secret to looking so fantastic.
Hi Amanda, thank you very much for your time taken to answer our questions on SimplySxy. Can you share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
I’m Amanda, 23 years old and am currently an undergraduate in Murdoch University majoring in International Business. Currently working in AXA Insurance as a financial planner and a talent with AnticipatingDiva and Phantom Models. Was a finalist and Miss Photogenic in Miss Universe Singapore 2013.
How was the experience of participating in Miss Universe Singapore 2013 like for you?
Miss Universe Singapore was my first pageant and it was a lot to manage as I was only 20 back then. It was not as easy as it seems as it was extremely nerve wreaking – having to catwalk in a bikini and designer gown in front of hundreds of people gave me butterflies. It definitely boosted my confidence in front of the camera and with my stage presence after. I made new friends and even met my best friend in this pageant which was one of the best things that ever happened because it’s never easy finding a genuine friend who take cares of you and watches out for you like a elder sister. Not only that, we had to stay in best shape and prepare ourselves for the pageant. It was one of the best experience I ever had in my life.
Do you have any hobbies?
Tons of them! I love traveling and exploring new things in life. Meeting people along the way and understanding different culture and history. I love sports and especially yoga, swimming, hiking and running. Movies, reading and cooking too! I used to play the piano, violin and the Chinese instrument Pipa for 7 years.
As an avid traveller, which is one city/country you will love to visit but have yet to do so?
Well, I would have to say Egypt and South Africa!
What is your beauty secret to looking so good?
Working out and having a balance in what you eat. I indulge in desserts, especially dark chocolates but I believe everything has to have a balance. I visit my facial place once a month and I use a whole range of organic products from Australia.
Are you more of a lingerie or bikini girl?
This is a tough one but it depends on how I feel, and if I have to choose one.. I would say I’m a bikini girl. I love the sun and the beach! But I love my lingerie too!
What is the naughtiest thing you have ever done?
Haha it’s a secret and it’s only meant for my boyfriend to know.
It’s been a great pleasure to have you on SimplySxy, Amanda. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Confidence, intelligence and a good personality is sexy.
