NSC Series No. 2 2012
Siti Munirah Jusoh, the world No43 from Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia, won her first ever WSA title since starting the tour in 2004, despite having played in six finals previously.

Siti progressed through the event without dropping a game, before reaching Liu Tsz-Ling in the final. She then dispatched her opponent from Hong Kong, 11-4, 7-11, 12-10, 11-7.

The draw for the event heavily featured a contesting local contingent of players, and Tsz-Ling was one of just three first round entrants not of Malaysian descent. Carmen Lee, also of Hong Kong made it as far as the quarter finals, but Mi Jin Kim of South Korea was forced to concede a walkover in the first round.
