First of all, please introduce yourself.

My name is Susan Anak Leo. A child of an Iban father and a Lun Bawang mother. Currently working with Attorney General's Chambers as a Federal Counsel.


When people says "Buddy", whats the first thing that comes in your mind?

The first thing that comes up in my mind would be “companion”… accompanying you whenever you’re lost or lonely.


What do you love to do in

I love to explore and read blogs entries posted by members..


Do you find the right place to promote the lifestyle and cultures of people in Borneo?

I would say yes, BorneoColours is indeed the right place..


Have any suggestions in features or sections that you would like to have in

How about having more information on history of Borneo?


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.
