Double Thai beauty treat for charity

What do you get if you put two Thai beauties, great Japanese food and lots of fine wine under one roof?

You get a lots of laughter and merry-making that reaches such a height, it even leads to the occasional broken glass of champagne...

But more importantly, you get 25 grand collected for a good cause.

Two leggy Thai beauties were down recently to help raise funds for flood victims back home.

Miss Thailand World 2004 Nikallaya Dullyaya and Miss Thailand World 2007 Thammaros Jaichven were at a charity dinner at the swanky Mika Japanese restaurant at the Maju Junction mall in KL.

They eagerly helped auction off Bollinger and Magnum champagne bottles, a Pollock-inspired art piece and other souvenirs, which included a handbag from actress Elaine Daly.

The result was a cool RM25,000 collected from over 60 guests who forked out RM500 per dinner seat and up to thousands of ringgit for the auction items.

A pleased Nikallaya said, "The money will be put to good use. People in Thailand still need money for food and shelter."

"Thankfully, my family and I were not affected by the floods but there were many people who were and they need help," added the 26-year-old.

Nikallaya, is very civic conscious and says she only became a beauty queen by chance.

What she really does enjoy is teaching, which is what she does back home.

"I only entered the beauty pageant and also started acting to raise money for my Masters in Communications, which I graduated in two years ago," she says.

She's been acting for four years in Thai dramas but still finds teaching to be the ultimate reward.

"I teach primary school students Mathematics. But I want to teach them to be good people as well. I want to convey my own experiences and not just teach them how to add and subtract," she says.

Thammaros (Miss Thailand World 2007), was equally pleased with the money raised from the auction dinner.

"I'm so happy to see many people contributed to help our country. I'm so touched"  said the 25-year-old actress.

The dinner was organised by the Dr 19 Baht Foundation and Mika Japanese Restaurant. It was hosted by emcee Raj Aria.
