Yasmin Yusoff is one of the few well-known Malay pageant contestants who won the Miss Universe Malaysia title back in 1978.Born in Cardiff, Wales to a Malay descent Malaysian father and a German mother, the 60-year-old beauty pageant winner is a veteran actress and singer in Malaysia.While there are some pageant winners who have found immediate success right after their victory at the local pageant circuit, some have returned to their normal daily routines only to emerge in the limelight once in a while, and some have even disappeared into oblivion (exaggerating-lah) for a more low key life.We looked at the past Miss Malaysia title holders to find out what they have been up to since their crowning.Being crowned as the pageant winner has always been an honour, but then a year later, another winner will rise and all the attention will be on the new beauty queen instead.The cycle goes on unless the former beauty queen secures a guaranteed career in her life that will continue to maintain her status as a public figure in the eyes of society.
So far, Yusoff has only released two albums; “Yasmin” (1978) and “Harapan” (1980) as she is more active in TV dramas and movies.
