After taking the Miss Asian America crown, she entered the Miss Chinatown USA 2003 pageant. Traveling to San Francisco to compete, she took the Miss Chinese Chamber of Commerce 2003 title (1st runner up). The winner was Miss Honolulu, Hawaii, Darah Dung. Fala was rumored to represent San Francisco at Miss Chinese International 2004. However due to arguments from both networks, Fala didn't compete. However, that is wrong. The highest placing delegate at the Miss Chinatown USA pageant represents San Francisco. However, she has to be from San Francisco, or the Bay Area in order to compete. The highest placing bay area delegate from the top 3 only competes. The 2nd runner up, Maria Kang should have represented San Francisco because she was from San Francisco. Like 2004's Miss Chinatown USA pageant, Miss Shan Chen is from New York and the runner up, Kim Choy is from Seattle. That's why the 2nd runner up, Annie Chang from San Francisco participated at the Miss Chinese International 2005 pageant.

The other 3 awards were: Best in Costume, Best in MTV, and Miss Photogenic. Then she had the right to represent New York at the 2005 Miss Chinese International pageant even though she was from Georgia. It was also in 2004 that the pageant accepts delegates around The United States.
Miss Chinese International 2005
