Suddenly the yellow skin is considered beautiful






I was shocked seeing a yellow skin woman won Miss World 2007. Can you imagine it has never happened before since 1954? The yellow skin beauty from Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and even Malaysia had all lost in the pass. When I was young, I would watch Miss World during the night, and those in the finalist were always the blonds or the South Americans or Indians. There was a saying that the Asian beauties were too short, their style didn't suit the western judgement, they didn't speak good English...As far as I know only Maggie Cheong managed to qualify as one of the 15 finalists in 1983.

And today, a Chinese won. Wow. I saw the crowing moment, and she is taller than all the finalist. But, I strongly suspect this has to do with the raising of Chinese political and economical power. She was telling the world how she wishes China can successfully organize the 2008 Olympic Games and the judges were "touched". Isn't it a nice moment to "give face" to the Chinese?

When Ann Lee won the Oscar in 2001 I was thinking what the hell was going on. I didn't believe my eyes watching the big screen in the Time Squares in NY. Now, I won be surprised if more Chinese win in any global or international events.

In 21 century, the world has to "kow-tow" to the Chinese, not the other way round.

Here shows which region won the Miss World in the past. India scored well, but see in Asia the yellow skin countries has only won once, and that is from China in 2007.
