New Singapore Girl wax figure modelled after yummy mummy chosen out of 4,500 SIA stewardesses

IDENTICAL: Ms Nur Surya (fourth from right) and her family posing with her wax figureat Madame Tussauds Singapore last week.

Singapore Airlines flight stewardess Nur Surya Mohamed Ambiah was chosen out of 4,500 female cabin crew members as a model for the wax figure of the iconic Singapore Girl.

The 31-year-old's likeness was launched by Madame Tussauds Singapore and Singapore Airlines yesterday.

The wax figure, which will be on display at the museum from today, took about three months to complete in London.

When she and her family got a "private" sneak peek last week, her four-year-old daughter thought she was seeing double.

Ms Nur Surya said: "(She) was very shocked to see that she has two mothers now. She was a little confused at first, but after some time, she realised that I am the real mummy, and the wax figure is the mummy doll."

This is the second Singapore Girl wax figure to be produced by Madame Tussauds. The first was modelled after Ms Lim Suet Kwee back in 1993.

Duo behind The Real Singapore still on bail, still in Singapore

STILL HERE: Mr Robin Yang (behind) and Miss Ai Takagi (in yellow) were back at Police Cantonment Complex yesterday morning as their bail expired.

The duo allegedly behind The Real Singapore (TRS) were back at the Criminal Investigation Department yesterday.

The two weeks’ bail for Miss Ai Takagi, a Japanese-Australian, and Mr Robin Yang Kaiheng had expired.

But if the pair were hoping to return to their Brisbane apartment for their new university term, they were disappointed.

The New Paper understands that the students at the University of Queensland had their bail extended and their application to return to Australia rejected.

Miss Takagi, 22, and Mr Yang, 26, are accused of embellishing a post on TRS.
