  4. The Miss Asia Pacific World 2014 is a manipulation between the National Director of Macau and Hongkong Sasha Washeem and Lawrence Choi..
    Sasha Washeem is also the producer/manager of FilmAwards.Tv that manages Miss Macau and Miss Hongkong..
    Sasha Washeem monopolized the pageant by giving favor to Lawrence Choi by bringing his models from hongkong to take part in the pageant night performances..He was also able to put himself as one of the Judges in the pageant night despite of him having his own candidate in the contest..He and Miss Macau has no integrity and shame to manipulate this pageant into their advantage..and so with with Mr.Lawrence Choi who allowed Sasha Washeem to be a part of the panel of judges despite his partiality to his candidates in that pageant he is judging…This pageant has no credibilty,disorganized and has no respect for fairness..
