Good morning from Thailand!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Thailand, the land of smiles, and rightly so because there is so much to smile about. Last night was Thai Night at Miss Universe. We celebrated it by doing a Thai silk fashion show, having dinner with affluent Thai members of society, and conducting the auction show. It was the most wonderful night for Nepal. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Nepal, as many of you know our auction gift to MU was a Buddhist Shadow box that @kayo_studio helped me bring to reality. Our gift was one of the most popular auction items at last night’s event. It was sold for 310,000 bhat ~ $9,600. I was shocked and internally jumping with joy. The Thai people love Nepal, our people and culture, and I was proud and honored to share our piece of heritage with them. I pray that the deep friendship between Thailand and Nepal continues to newer heights. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #dusitthani #missnepal2018 #missnepal #missuniverse2018 #missuniverse2018 #confidentlybeautiful #laboutique #auctionnight #thaifashionshow #thailand #nepal #confidentlybeautiful
