A photo of her at the check-in counter at Piarco was accompanied by the words, "I got ALL my extra and heavy luggage waivered at the last minute thanks to Caribbean Airlines!!! These lovely ladies were so helpful in making it possible. Don't worry folks, I'm on my way!!"
She later posted a photo at the Piarco VIP lounge standing next to Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Dr Lovell Francis, where she stated, "A very special thank you to The Honourable Dr. Lovell Francis for taking me to London with his entourage!! I was able to savour every last minute prior to departure with my family and friends as they were all accommodated at the VIP Lounge. I must admit that I was somewhat worried about traveling alone but when I met Dr. Lovell at the airport and learnt that I would be traveling with him, I felt safe and comfortable."
Singh later posted pictures in London saying, "I arrived safely and I spent the long layover with my family. I leave for China in a bit and I feel so happy that I'm one step closer to Sanya. 6,033 miles to be accurate. I pray that there are no delays as I have a lot of catching up to do when I finally arrive at Miss World. I am so grateful for this opportunity to represent our country."
Singh had been stripped of her title after the Miss World T&T organisation felt she had breached the rules of the organisastion. The matter went before a arbitrator who ruled that she shoud be reinstated.
The Miss World Pageant takes place on December 19th in Sanya, China.
