The Kadazan language profeciency has decreased among younger generations and Unduk Ngadau is taking this initiative to prevent further decline of its usage and to preserve the legacy for future generation. Some efforts on this has been made by various groups but we felt it timely to also include it in our programe as the novelty of speaking the language seems to rub through the younger generations with the influence of these gorgeous young ladies.
This post is long overdue and it was lying in draft form in my vault since June 2015. Anyway was browsing through this almost dormant blog. It is so easy to forget this blog and just let be as there are so many social media mode. Just reading through the endless messages from friends on my watsapp, wechat or telegrams, Instagram and of course Facebook take me almost a whole morning. So much has happened this few months.
Was not able to take any pictures this Kaamatan as was too occupied to even think about taking. Tried to snap some with my handphone and horrors, it gave me a message 'full memory'.. Oh well, will have to depend on our Official Photographers and also those photographer enthusiasts.
Thank goodness, the 5-day event from 27th May the day of registration, photoshoots, videoshoot for the 42 UN participants each representing a district/sub-district/municipalities till the final competition on 31st May 2015 went well but not without some glitches.
Experiences in handling a big event such as this does count as we were able to cover it and was able to act fast and remedy the situation. Each day was packed with program for the ladies..seminars, practical learning at the museum, rehearsals that stretched through the night. Well, the Crown is certainly not going to be given to them on a platter! Told them this is a competition and they were not here on a holiday!
