Miss Bali, Yoke Paramita Djati Walujo, has come out on top (sorry!) in the Bikini Contest for the “Miss Tourism Queen of 2009” held in Xinyang, China.
Now that’s all very well and congrats to her, but why did she compete as Miss Bali and not as Miss Indonesia?
I mean there are still people out there who actually believe that Bali is a country in its own right rather than part of Indonesia.
So, if the Miss Tourism Queen – who is usually associated with a specific country – is called Miss Bali, then won’t this only serve to perpetuate this wrongly held belief?
