Thanks David for the great graphic for the LadyBoy â€“ â€œMiss Queen Chiang Mai Contestâ€. I used a â€œwidgetâ€ to install it â€“ looks great.
So far, I see there are 13 votes and Miss # 9 â€œMareaschanokâ€ â€“ has 61% of the votes. Good going â€“ hope she holds the lead. Itâ€™s been 4 days since the start of the polling â€“ word is getting out now and we expect the race to heat up. Good luck Girls !

Hey David – I was just checking your visitor count – over 8000 – Wow keep it climbing
I have just added a page with pictures so you can make your vote for:
Vote for Miss Queen Chiang Mai 2007 Poll
The free GoDaddy poll does have some limits so I am just showing the â€œTopâ€ 22 Ladies as chosen by the Official Judges at the event, however the “Other” selection will allow you to vote for any Lady.
The page has images of each of the 44 contestants, in both sports wear and evening gowns (some only entered in one outfit) so you can decided which is YOUR favourite. If their not listed in the “Top” 22 – just enter their number into the “Other” selection and give them credit. I find them all beautiful – it’s hard to decide who should be called number one.
It also lists the Official Winners â€“ but donâ€™t let that distract you from voting for your choice â€“ letâ€™s see if the viewers get the same result.
Sorry, I donâ€™t have all the names and I hope we got the spelling right â€“ we wrote them down watching the full video so mistakes may be there â€“ if you find an error , if you know the Lady, maybe you can have her contact us and we will make any corrections.
Here is the final lineup picture ( Judge’s Top 22) :
Here are some snippets from the video Tasanai took of the LadyBoy Beauty Contest at “The Peak” in the Chiang Mai Night Bazaar.
I thought it appropriate that “Let’s hear it for the boys” was playing on my computer while I was preparing this clip – so I hope no one gets mad because I left it in the sound track. I just picked some highlights and hope I got every lady covered. We are just starting the work on preparing a full spread page showing each Ladyboy in sports wear and their evening dresses so you can view and choose your winner. We will try to have a poll available where you can place your vote and the following month we will post the actual winners as chosen by the contest judges – Let’s see if you choose the same beauties.
Last night was the â€œladyboy Beauty Contestâ€ at the â€œPeakâ€ in the Night Bazaar. 44 constastants, sports wear and evening gowns. First some shots of the area and crowds. Great attendance, over 500 there.
The Friendship Bar was our favorite â€“ The staff was in full dress
But back to the show â€”â€” First they had the â€œBlue Diamond Cabaretâ€ Ladies perform several pieces
The Judges: and the MTV Bar next door was also a good place to see the show.
Here are some shots of the Ladies â€”â€”â€“ I am preparing a full page with shots of each of the ladies and a poll so that you can vote on your favorite and next month I will publish the pictures of the winner (picked by the local judges) so you can see if you chose the same ones â€“ Man, it was difficult choosing the winners â€“ they are all very beautiful â€“ and none are cut
Thatâ€™s most of them there â€“ but soon you will be invited to vote your choice on our full page of images â€“ be sure and stay tuned.
ITâ€™S HARD TO BELIEVE THEIR ALL MEN (or boys if you prefer )
This will be the last video post for a while – it’s a long one and will take a long time to load so bear with us.
Next Tue there will be a LadyBoy contest at the Night Bazaar and we will get video and stills – stay tuned for some great shots and LADYBOYS. a third gender here in Thailand.
When Tin & Dana and later John & Roy visited us we took them to see Simon’s Cabaret. Here is a snippet of the final curtain call from one of last year performances – It’s hard to believe that there is NOT a natural girl in the cast.
When you come to Thailand, make sure that you don’t miss Simon’s of Chiang Mai – you won’t be disappointed. It’s a 1 1/2 hour show that will amaze you – we have been several times and each time there is completely different show – unique and reasonable 400 Baht or $12.50 each — try and find that elsewhere – and of course your Thai friend will get in for 150 Baht or $4.00 – what a inexpensive evening.
