Last week Phuket Sunshine Village children were blessed by 12 beautiful rays of sunshine
or 12 of 36 Miss France beauty contestants who were visiting the PSV as part of their
week long video shoots in various sunny locations of Phuket.

The contestants gave out some gifts or "cadeaux" in French for the children.

As the beauty contestants helped the girls groom their new dolls,
we wished the beauty contestants ‘au revoir and ‘bonne chance’ in their Miss France 2009 contest,
and hope the winner at least returns to see these future Miss Thailand girls of Phuket Sunshine Village.

Go to our gallery to see some pictures of that day with the misses...
