*New Post* Unduk Ngadau 2012 Winner in Sabah #Borneo ~ #culture #festival
Kaamatan or Harvest Festival is Sabah is an annual cultural observation of the Kadazandusun people to celebrate a bountiful paddy harvest. Every year, contestants are selected in the state-level pageants and there will be one winner for their district's pageant. However, some districts hold joint pageants which produce more than one state-level contestant. After the district level, each of the finalist then move on to the state-level pageant which is held on the 31st of May each year at the Hongkod Koisaan building or KDCA in Penampang, Kota Kinabalu. This is the main highlight and ending point for the month long Kaamatan celebrations. Once again, congratulations to Melinda Louis from Telupid for being crowned Unduk Ngadau 2012 Winner.
