Audience must have surely noticed the beautiful, western-looking model with clear-cut and stunning features that emerged back in the era when modeling became the “it” factor in Myanmar. At the height of her success, she got married and left for abroad, where her husband was living. And so she disappeared from the public eye. Back in those times, there were even rumors flying around that she had been picked as a consort by a prince from a foreign country. She is also known by the public as Christie, and her real name is Thandar Hlaing.

Today, she is a mother of two. However, the still youthful beauty has made a comeback to modeling, and is once again claiming success and victory. The Model Academy program, with her as the lead in it, achieved great success by captivating the interest among the viewing audience of television. Currently, she is in charge of a law service program called Blay Mackenzie Legal Consultants.

The first topic of discussion is about her recent activities, including artistic endeavors. She reveals that these days, she accepts offers for shootings and commercials, and also officiates events. She also participates in workshops and seminars. Not long ago, she gave a speech on the topic of the advancement in Myanmar women’s communication styles. As she is a Law graduate, her company has been assisting people in building legal benefits and offering consultancy. Nowadays, she works more with artists on deals such as making legal contracts while investing in businesses from all countries, and with their copyright issues.

In this country, the artist fees are not very high, and if they just stick to local affairs, they don’t usually get the customer services and payments as much as they deserve. This is why if they work with international companies, they will get the efficient amount of payment according to international standards. For example, with things like photos and commercials, the artists allow companies to use their image for up to two or three years, depending on their contracts. If the companies want to extend the period, they will need to purchase the rights from the artists again. And so, this is how she has been providing services for artists when they are making such contracts.

The next point is about how long she has been established as a model and how she views the changes that have been occurring in the modeling world throughout the time she has been a model. The surprising answer is that it has been around twenty years since she first became a model. She even jokes that now she can be considered an old lady. She observes that today, a lot of her one-time co-workers who had first started out with her are no longer in existence in the modeling world. She also muses that with all the passing years, change is only natural in such a world. Just as there are good changes, there are also bad changes. The most important thing that she always says is to never give up your morals. Especially since this line of work is so closely related to appearance and looks, it is even more important to have morality and ethics.
