The official synopsis of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 11, from the official website:

The girls enjoy a well-deserved getaway to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but there is no getting away from the judges’ scrutiny now that an undercover judge joins them 24/7 disguised as a new contestant; and this week, they brave the heat for the longest catwalk challenge, before balancing on ice skates for an editorial photo shoot that puts some of them on thin ice.

While competing in Malaysia might seem like home advantage for one of the contestants at first, the weight of the nation proves too much for her to bear. Back at the hotel, everyone puts the newbie through the wringer. Special appearances by fashion photographer, Bibo Aswan; and creative consultant, Daniel Boey.

Yay! International destination. Oh and Shikin is so going to be Bottom 2 this episode. Will she be eliminated? We’ll find out.
