Oh My God is Right...

The first time I saw Karouna "Kay" Sivilay featured in Import Tuner Magazine, I thought I was in love. Looking back now, I don't think that it was love, but something very much like it, ha ha. For the first time in recent memory, I found a Thai/Lao model that made it to the front cover of a reputable commercial interest magazine, so I certainly didn't want to miss out on learning about her, as she just happened to grace the cover of the magazine that I couldn't run to the Barnes and Noble's counter to buy fast enough and my instant infatuation with her was all because I wanted to learn how to properly soup up my 1989 Honda Prelude Si (see newly listed Classic Cars and Ricer Predecessors). Safe to say, my Japanese baby is still in the process of being restored. As soon as I get her in tip-top condition, I'll write a Hub about it! So in the meantime, sit back, relax, and get to know Kay Sivilay. Please enjoy (and please, for the love of Maria, don't tell Rayna H. Hurman about it).

What Wikipedia Says About Kay Sivilay

Kay Sivilay (born June 12, 1980) is a model of predominantly Lao, with some Thai, Chinese, and French descent. She is also famous for her appearances in import car magazines, and more recently in Playboy. As a result of her marriage in 2006, she is retired from the modeling profession and her website is no longer active.

Sivilay came from the Los Angeles Area in Southern California. She last attended Nathaniel Narbonne High School and was part of the graduating class of 1997.

Okay (that's a pun by the way) there seems to be some confusion as to when Kay Sivilay was born, as Wikepedia claims (which isn't always a reliable source, especially in this case, when nothing is cited about the article in question) that she was born on June 12, 1980, whereas the description of her below, which I found on Import Tuner Magazine claims she was born on April 26, 1979 (which would make her a Taurus like me). So, with that said, I'm going to go with Import Tuner Magazine's claim, as they had in fact interviewed her in person. It' s also important to note that she was born in Nongkai, Thailand and that for the most part is predominantly Lao rather than Thai.

How Kay Sivilay Got Her Start

In an interview with ktown213.com, Kay Sivilay stated that, "modeling wasn't a life-long dream" and that when a photographer suggested that she get into modeling, she gave it a shot. What followed were a few photo sessions in which produced many pictures (some which were nude) which she then sent to Playboy. To her surprise, they were accepted and so began (in June of 2003) the modeling career of Kay Sivilay.  She became a Playboy Cybergirl for the Fifth Week of June 2003.

You can read Import Tuner Magazine's interview with Kay Sivilay by clicking here.

Kay's Career As A Model

After having been featured as a Playboy Cybergirl, Kay was then asked to be included in their Special Editions, which she happily accepted. Such publications included, "Book of Lingerie,""Exotic Beauties," and "Nudes." She claims that she wasn't nude in such pictorials, as most of the photos depicted her in lingerie wearing jewelry. On the topic of posing nude and modeling for Playboy, Kay stated the following:

"I don't have a problem being nude just as long as it's classy. Plus I'm a fan and a subscriber AND an admirer of Playboy..."

After having appeared as a Playboy Cybergirl, Kay quickly rose to stardom as she was then invited to be featured in Import Tuner Magazine. She would then go on to attend UCLA. As of 2006, she's retired from modeling due to personal obligations which included marrying her best friend of many years. She plans to have three children and pursue a career in Public Relations. Since making these changes in her life, she has since "closed her shop" which was kaysivilay.com--the remaining photos of which I was able to salvage.

Not seen her before today but I reckon I once dated her twin sister ;-) I admire a girl who can step out of the limelight to marry and raise a family. I wish her happiness. Thanks Dohn. Brightened up the start to my day.

dohn121 6 years ago from Hudson Valley, New York Author

You're welcome, Peter! More and more, I see Lao and Thai models stepping into the mainstream and into the public eye. I sure do hope that this trend continues. It's too bad that she isn't modeling anymore, but hey, life goes on. Thanks again!

This is awesome hub Dohn.I think Lao people got lots of physical resemblance with Thai people.Thank you for this great new year gift.

dohn, Lao and Indonesian people look alike. But the culture is very similar to Thai and Khmer I guess. This an awesome hub. Thanks for it.

dohn, She is absolutely beautiful although my admiration might come from a slightly different perspective than yours. Great pictures and I can see that you had great pleasure writing this particular hub.

dohn121 6 years ago from Hudson Valley, New York Author

@andromida-You're absolutely correct my friend. We were one and the same at one time, but then migrated away from one another/built separate kingdoms (this is all factual). Our language is practically the same with much of the same letters and consonants. I'm glad that you liked it! Thank you.

@Bbudoyono-Thank you! Yes, we're very much alike in so many ways. I think that one of the greatest things that all of us can do is to find in others similarities rather than differences. It's great to hear that you enjoyed this.

@dusanotes-No, I didn't take the pics, but I wish I did...I probably would've done a lousy job however! Thanks for the comment!

@Tammy Lochman-Thanks Tammy! I guess he's not a fan...Maybe if this hub becomes popular he will ;) Here's to Art! Thanks!

@Pamela99-Thanks, Pamela. Yeah, I was a bit hesitant at first to write TWO hubs one her (I didn't want to cram too much into one like usual). But then I thought, "Oh, what the heck!" It was fun!

Hi my dear friend, so sorry for the delay. Great hub and beautiful photos. I want to say a big CONGRATULATION to you, for been one of the great winners of the top new hubbers 2009. A Evans done a great hub. And I think that you guys deserved to be winners.:) Thanks for all the good work and for been a great hubber. Bless you bro.:)

I think she must add more subscriptions to Import Tuner than anyone else. Absolutely marvellous - does every car magazine in the States have models so fine?


dohn121 profile image

dohn121 6 years ago from Hudson Valley, New York Author

@keira7-Gosh, thank you so much, keira7! That means so much to hear you say that! AEvans is awesome, isn't she? I'll admit, I'm very much a HP addict! Isn't it obvious? Thanks again, my friend!

@Nicks-Thank you. You know, I scoured that magazine and no one comes close to Kay. Everyone else just seems...I don't want to say "trashy." Anyhow, she had a great run. I'm curious to see which models they feature next!

Hi Dohn,

Thanks a mega ton for all the pains you took to scoop out this Oriental pearl(even if she is into retirement).Mark my words it's just a matter of time b4 she is back.They all come back once they have tasted blood they can only resist to a certain point before they allow themeseleves to get lured back with an offer they find too hard to resist.

Til then this hub goes into my faves for regular drooling over till she returns in a new avatar of a hot sizzling MILF.

Check out my hubs u'll find a lot of Oriental sizzlers even if most of them are into hardcore xxx.Keep the gud work flowing.


dohn121 profile image

dohn121 6 years ago from Hudson Valley, New York Author

Ha! Thanks, THE LIP. I'm glad that you enjoyed reading this hub and hope that I can find more "pearls" for you to take a gander of. For her to get back into modeling would be great, but I think I rather see her married and secure :) Time will tell, I guess. Thanks so much for visiting me. I'll be sure to read some of your hubs as well.

I can see why you sort of fell in love with her! She is very nice. I work as an outreach worker, and meet lots of people from different countries every day, and there are a few clients from Lao, and i have to admit they are very attractive!

You've picked out a gem in her i think, well done!

Thanks, G Miah. You must live a very interesting life! I bet you see more Lao people than I do (family does not count!). I'm glad that you enjoyed meeting Kay Sivilay. Who knows, maybe one day you'll meet her in person ;)

Ok dohn121, I can see why you'd want to wash, buff and shine your 1989 Honda Prelude Si based on the cover alone of that mag. Hmm, sure we believe that's what you were really doing, lol.
