Miss Earth Sabah 2010 (Part II)

20 Jun

GREEN is the new pink! MES 2010-Sabahan Bloggers Night made me realized so.

Taglined ‘Beauties Nurturing Nature’, Miss Earth Sabah 2010 definitely draws public attention, including us, bloggers. If not for Mr Dinoza Mahruf, I wouldn’t have the opportunity to see what the beauties had in store, for being the 12 ambassadresses of green earth. Win or no win, they’re there for a CHANGE.

Well, the three of us friends (forever) Jess and Serra and I lobbied for the exclusive 4 complimentary dinner with the MES 2010 beauties at The Roof Restaurant, Imperial Hotel, Kota Kinabalu on June 15th 2010. Had been hovering around and stalking the Miss Earth Sabah 2010 Official Page since Day 1 of the event, to be truthful (yet unsurprisingly). Who wouldn’t anyway, aite? Hehe.

Mr Dinoza and the three of us bloggers, Serra, Jess and I.

I managed to have a chat with one finalist, May Salitah Naru-Kiob. Tell you, she’s one unique and bubbly personality. I did my homework, really. Hehe. The night before, I had been ‘stalking’ her FB page, of all the other finalists. Minus the hoo haas (which complemented mine!) she has got an array of ideas to share. Love how she naturally shared her ideas with ease, and with passion! The Q I asked was the cliche one: ‘If you were crowned Miss Earth Sabah 2010, what cause/change would you like to bring forward in the state?’

Though might be cliche for some, May pulled no punches to give a shot in NOT trying too hard! I would have thought being a student in an international affair course, May would be giving all those bombastic answers! She didn’t. And deep down inside (konon la, haha!) I thought “Oh wow, she’ll be the Miss Earth Sabah 2010!” Her little ways of nurturing small kids to love the environment are practical and achievable. The best way to start a little something is from home (btw, turns out, she wins the title as I’m typing this!). Too bad I didn’t go and paparazzi-ed her!

The other finalists are unique and learned in their own way too. Couldn’t agree more!

With gorgeous Appey Rowena

Quoted May Salitah as saying that Mandy is so high on top, yet so down to earth. Really, she is utterly nice.

The Sabahan Bloggers Night with the MES 2010 finalists was a chance I would trash away had it not been for Jess and Serra who ‘coaxed’ me to try my luck. Been lucky to get to know the finalists and to share some awakening ideas and perspectives on the environmental issues world over.  Kudos for the organizers and all those who made it possible for a change in breathing new life to mother earth through MES 2010. She deserves it!

And for you readers out there, be a CHANGE for mother earth!
