BC: now for some fun questions, :)


You recently attended Borneo Hornbill Festival 2011 (BHF), how was the event?

The event was great, I've indirectly involved in the event when I was appointed as a manager to a Kumang Iban named Veeky-Leonora Andria @ Zanoria (Winner for Kumang Iban title BHF 2011). There were beauty pageant as well as dance competition. The BHF beauty pageant is totally different from other beauty pageant competition, as the winner was not just valued based on their looks, but also the authenticity and originality of their costume, which carries the highest mark.

Veeky has also made a history, she prooved that to be a Kumang, one does not necessarily need to wear that heavy or colorful accesories. So instead of wearing the colorful costume, She wore the original Iban lady costume, the Rawai Tinggi (high corset) for the competition.

What is your best childhood memory?

One of the best childhood memory was when I was visiting to the Zoo Negara, I see this to see the giraffe for the time.

Kumang Iban BHF KL 2011 - Veeky-Leonora's note

It's all women dreams to be crowned as a "Beauty Queen".. Veeky-Leonora, who dressed in the original iban lady costume has won the title "KUMANG IBAN BORNEO HORNBILL FESTIVAL KL 2011". She only wore the rawai tinggi (high corset) around her waist. She has made a change, that to be crowned as a Kumang Iban, one does not necessarily has to be pretty, wear colorful; heavier; or full accessories, but one must know what to wear and how to wear em'..

Words of appreciation from Veeky-Leonora;

Dear All,

I would like to take this opportunity congratulate and thank Warisan Sarawak and its wonderful crew on their good effort in organising this event The Borneo Hornbill Festival 2011 and was successfully done. This is a perfect platform for us to show the beauty of our Borneo Culture as well as a stepping stone for the younger generation to boost their confidence onstage.




I was very impressed and proud with the performance of this year's Kumang and Keling contestants for all the categories. They indeed did their homework in researching the costumes and performed well during the Q and A session. It takes the gut of steel to even register yourself for this competition as even my knees go weak on stage, but with the brief training and guidance prepared by Warisan Sarawak together with its crew we managed to nail the stage down that very night. Not forgetting the endless encouragement from my new found friends gives each and everyone of us the morale boost to get through this.

I see that some contestants would be trying their luck again for next year....Kudos to you and never give up. However, my word of advise is RESEARCH,RESEARCH and RESEARCH!...be it from books, Mr.GOOGLE, visits to museums and antique shops and even your family and friends. Don't be shy to ask because answers will be revealed if you were to ask (and listen to the advise given too).


It was timely for me to show how Indu Dara Insin Temaga would wear her costume.

As this was my first time joining such pageant, me and my Manager, Susan Leo decided to go all out for this event.

I must also thank Ms. Jacqueline Selaka Mawar, Mr. Gregory Nyanggau, Mr. Vernon Kedit and Ms. Patricia Momyus for advising us on how a true ngepan Indu Iban should be worn. The journey to find Indu Dara Insin Temaga really inspired me to hold as close as I can to originality. Through the research being done, I know my roots even more even if it just communicating with my elderly. So my dear friends, don't be shy to ask people, read more, explore all the possibilities of your culture and you'll be surprised to know once they're revealed.

To all my friends and supporters...Thank you for your endless support especially my dear friend Susan Leo with her sleepless nights, my mum, dad and brother Nielsen-Nikki, my Keling Johnney Slyvester for his encouragement and everyone who believes that I have what it takes to pursue this objective, to show Indu Dara Insin Temaga.. Thank you also for your friendship my new found friends, a great pleasure knowing all of you, please forgive me if I did anything wrong. Hope we can keep in touch...

Be proud being Anak Sarawak...remember "You can always take a Sarawak Girl (or boy) out from Sarawak but never Sarawak out from a Sarawak Girl or Boy."

Lots of Love from me and God bless all of you. Cheers!

Veeky-Leonora Andria

Lost World of Tambun

"Lost World of Tambun" click here is located in the historic town of Ipoh.

Me with the super macho kitty!

The red devil who has lost his wisdom tooth..

A unique petting zoo has been created within the natural jungle, against a backdrop of limestone hills.

A pigeon called Giant. A very fat pigeon and tame as well. When called his name he straight away flew towards me.

Giant seems enjoy eating

tada!! no more food

This ain't camera trick. The birdie has landed on my palm

tada! i tell no lie when i said the birdie has landed on my palm..

I was told by the Ranger that this birdie is the most gentle birdie when it comes to eating time..

Blue bird is eating calmly

White peacock who can't stop eating while the shy duckling watching from behind...

the tree Stooges who are hunger for food

Me adoring the black swan



let's take a ride - swan ride..
