Favorite dessert?
Anything to do with cheese, cakes and chocolate. 

Thai or Western food?
Both, I love spicy northern Thai dish like nam prik ong and kab moo. For Western, I love anything with cheese - like pizza. 

Fashion idol?
Chompoo Araya A. Hargate. I also love watching Victoria's Secret fashion show. I like the fact that they also present their identity while striking through the catwalk.

Favorite sport?

What do you like most about Bangkok?
The BTS.

Favorite place to go in Bangkok?
Rod Fai Market

What do you like best about Chiang Rai, your hometown?
Sea mist on the mountain. I love when the weather gets cold and the university becomes a winter fashion runway. 

Why do beauty pageants need to wave their hands all the time, especially during the crowning moment?

without saying a word. Waving is also something to do to complement the tiara.

Maroon 5, and K-Pop music

A Little Thing Called Love.

The Maze Runner and the Japanese anime called Toriko
