At a press conference today, three finalists were selected for each of the three subsidiary titles - the Fresh Look Award, Body Beautiful Award and Elegant Award - out of the total 12 finalists in the pageant.

Yeo expressed her delight at being nominated for all three subsidiary titles. When asked about how she feels being the youngest contestant, she said: “Getting into the final stages of the pageant proves that I am as mature and confident as the rest of the contestants.” 

As with previous years, this year’s finalists come from diverse backgrounds, including students, company directors and flight attendants. 

The hosts of this year’s final are Hong Kong’s TVB8 host Derek Li, local artiste Kwok Coco, and first runner-up of the Miss Malaysia Chinese International Pageant 2000, Lynn Lim. The winner of Astro Talent Quest 2003, Kenny Koh, will be the guest artiste of the night. 

The winner of the pageant will represent Malaysia at the Miss Chinese International Pageant 2004 in Hong Kong.
