State-Level Kaamatan Festival 2009 Unduk Ngadau

Sunday, 31st May by Melvin Michael M The Pesta Kaamatan will culminate this Sunday, 31st of May, when all 41 of our Kadazan, Dusun and Murut Unduk Ngadau District Queens and beauties will gather for the 2009 State-Level Unduk Ngadau Beauty Pageant at Hongkod Koisaan, KDCA Hall in Penampang. Although it looks easy from the outside, being an Unduk Ngadau District Queen is by no means an easy task, as it takes a lot of courage, bravery, hard work, concentration, time and dedication to be where they are and in the position they are in representing one's own district, and we should give them all the support that we can, by cheering them on and giving words of encouragement. One negative aspect that I would like to point out is that there seems to be this persisting negative trait from some part of the audience to look down on a contestant during the Q&A session, or worst even booing, whenever a contestant needed extra time to answer her question properly or got stuck or tongue twisted with her answers. It is hoped that this year, we can change and overcome this negative attitude of these minor section of the audience into a positive one by cheering, clapping and encouraging our contestant to answer her given question in her given time, properly and without major negative distractions. If we don't start now, bila lagi kita mau support para jelitawan Unduk Ngadau kita secara positif? After all, they are like our own sisters and daughters representing Sabah, so we should always try to help one another to do well. So, who will win the Unduk Ngadau 2009 title for this wonderful year of 2009? Will Miss Penampang, Miss Joanne Kimberly J. Majalap, will she be able to make the local crowd deliriously happy by retaining the Unduk Ngadau crown for Penampang ? Will it be someone we least expected? There are a number of true beauties who are favourites out there, and I'm sure some of you have one, two or even three amongst them! Will the newly crowned Miss Natural Beauty, Miss Flina Rutum from Tamparuli has a say in the final rounds? & what about Miss Beaufort, Miss Friendly, Affy Jackleyinda Entawin, will she be in the final rounds as well? What about Miss Kota Marudu, Miss Sandakan, Miss DBKK, Miss Tenom or Miss Ranau? So, who will be the newly crowned Unduk Ngadau Queen for 2009? The Unduk Ngadau begins at 1.00pm this Sunday. Let us all come and enjoy the Kaamatan celebration this Sunday, and enjoy the Unduk Ngadau eager with anticipation and full of excitement. Marilah datang beramai-ramai, kio! Aramaitii!
