It was really a long and arduous day at Sunway Lagoon Hotel in Petaling Jaya, which started as early as 7.00am in the morning and concluded close to 9.00pm at night, last Saturday, 14th May 2011. It was hard not only on the hundred qualifiers who made it to the call back auditions, but also on the entire crew and also the judges, made up of pageant director & former winner Andrea Fonseka, popular actor Hans Isaac, industry heavyweight Julia Dolmatova, and radio hotshot Phat Fabes, who had to deliberate thoroughly and carefully throughout the day to find the best of Malaysia.
