'Chio-bu' army grace Orchard Road with their presence over the weekend

Stomper Melissa was at Orchard Road on Saturday (Jun 3) when she came across an unusual sight outside ION Orchard.

In an email to Stomp, the Stomper said that she saw a group of masked women walking in the vicinity of the mall.

Photos and a video sent by Melissa shows the women in black dresses and white masks walking in two rows along the popular shopping district.

Wanting to satisfy her curiosity, Melissa walked up to them and asked what they were up to.

She found out that the mysterious women-in-black were promoting the upcoming Miss Singapore Beauty Pageant 2017.

Said the Stomper with regard to what she came across:

"It was quite a sight and people even approached them to take selfies!"

If you think you have what it takes to be the next Miss Singapore, you can head down for the next audition on June 10.

Here are the details:

Date: 10 June 2017
