Malaysia's leading English diary newspaper The Star was born on 9 September 1971.
From day one, Mr K.S.Choong, the founder decided that a bikini clad "Beach Girl" will grace Page3.
"Page 3 girls always sell paper!" Choong reckoned ;)
Doreen Quah was the FIRST Page 3 girl of The Star, picture was taken by Chiang Siak Weng.
I remember fondly that I went to a lot of these "Beach Girl Job", usually the News Editor; Charles Chan will assign a cub reporter to tag along for "job experience".
