The usual activity is waking up bright and early on the 31st, pack some food and water plus cushion/mat and off we go to Penampang. At one year, kami naik bas lagi tu. Sanggup ni bersusah payah. But as of late, my dad or uncle will fetch us. Anyway, all this we endure just for the sake of being a true Unduk Ngadau fan. Haha.
Some last minute food shopping must be done before 9am because we want to enter the hall before the TYT comes in for the perasmian. Must find good spot! and our usual spot is at the right hand side of the hall ( if you are facing the stage ) next to the gongs and PDRM orchestra. Hehe. Pigi chop tempat then make ourself comfortable ( plus on the look out for potential latecomers yang suka pigi rebut tempat duduk ni )
But, this year due to the hectic work overload, I decided not to go. Feeling a little different now seeing updates from facebook saja. Last year, bukan main lagi involved ( I even co-emceed the gala night with Constan ). A break is good too.
All hail technology for making it possible getting updates almost real time. Mr David Chong ( David Aramaitii ) also is doing a very good job covering the event; sa pinjam dulu gambar ko ah.. hehe. It will be a looottttt better if there's live streaming of the event via internet. ^_^
Anyway, here's my top 7 pick for Unduk Ngadau Kaamatan 2012 ( in random order, but I really like to see someone wearing the tinombunan costume win this year )
So, whose your pick? The second round result will be out soon as I am typing. Around 6pm or so, there will be a new queen already.
Have a happening Kaamatan you all! Party responsibly, don't harm others.
