X Top Model Search 2012 returns with a bang!

X Top Model Search 2011 Winner: Aw Sim Hui


X Top Model Search Malaysia 2012 is back again this year, bigger, wiser and more relevant in the cut throat business of uncovering that special “X Factor” quality in that one special person to represent Malaysia in the international arena of super modelling. The quality they are looking for transcend just beauty and height but encompassing other immeasurable quality such as intelligence, inner beauty, attitude and some kind of X factors that make certain people great and popular among the general populace.

I have been following the X Top Model Search since its inception in 2011 and I could vouch that the winner Aw Sim Hui, does indeed met my expectation for a great personality and a potential for super model candidate. I wish her all the best for her future undertaking and I am sure she would make Malaysia proud of her soon.

Therefore I strongly believe if any of you girls out there harbor any hope of being a model and wanted to be successful in your chosen path, this is a good platform for you to start. Short of taking part in Miss World or Miss Universe, this is actually more relevant if your objective is to be a fashion model. And this sure beat the rest of the model search competition out there which usually has their main objective set to promote their particular brand only and not a single clue as to building the career of a model. So if you want to be a model, this is it! Search no further.
