Words of appreciation from Veeky-Leonora;
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.
As this was my first time joining such pageant, me and my Manager, Susan Leo decided to go all out for this event.
