Buvazoi Tavantang 2012

It has been really really long time I have not posted anything in my blog. Kesian blog ini sebab tuannya pemalas. Haha.

Anyway, I've been busy doing so many things actually. Apart from studies, I was busy singing and performing. Recently, I joined Buvazoi Tavantang (Mr. Kaamatan) competition. It's actually a male beauty pageant. Keep in mind that this beauty pageant is not like the other beauty pageants. It is culturally rich where the contestants who are representing their own district will parade the traditional costume from their respective district. This competition is a male version of Unduk Ngadau. If you don't know Unduk Ngadau, google it. It is BIG in Sabah. Likewise, Buvazoi Tavantang is regarded as the most prestigious male beauty pageant in Sabah.

So, like what I've mentioned, I joined Buvazoi Tavantang. I represented my hometown, the district of Ranau. Guess what, I placed third. It was a BIG surprise for me because I have no experience whatsoever and this is my first time joining such competition. This is definitely one of the best things I've experienced. 

I would like to say thank you to my idol and also my mentor, the first ever Buvazoi Tavantang, Mr. Keddy Mahdfuz for all the support and guidance. I am very lucky to have the best of the best person to seek guidance from. 

I know you guys want to see pictures. Enjoy. 

The contestants. Most of the contestants. Some are missing.
