Cultural Night 3: Lun Bawang Traditional Costumes Beauty Contest 2010
This is part 4 of the Irau Aco Lun Bawang 2010 series. Part 1, 2 and 3 can be found here:
The Grand Finale of the Lun Bawang Festival 2010 exhibits 13 beautiful ladies and 7 warrior-like men competing to be crowned as Ruran Ulung and Padan Liu’ Burung. Each of them proudly represents their home village and their contingent.
The weather was a bit wet that night but it didn’t stop the crowds to turn up cheering for their favourite contestant. I brought along my video camera and I was having a problem to record the event due to the drizzling rain. But I was lucky enough to get into the VIP section which was shaded with canopy. Camera, roll, action.
So here’s the video of the Ruran Ulung and Padan Liu’ Burung contest. Enjoy!
Padan Liu’ Burung
Some of the action weren’t recorded because both of my video camera and digital camera were running out of memory. I regret that I didn’t upload all the videos and pictures into the computer beforehand. But I hope you guys do enjoy the videos.
After priding their traditional costumes and answering questions, the time to unveil who will grab the Ruran Ulung and Padan Liu’ Burung 2010 title has come. It was Alicia Layun and Jude Benjamin, both cousins, wowed the judges with their poise and grace. I believe never in the history of the LunBawang traditional costume contest that cousins were both crowned the title respectively.
The prizes for all the winners were generously sponsored by Litadam Enterprise.
The end of this event also marks the end of the LunBawang Festival 2010. It’s great to see a great support especially from the LunBawang community to make this event a successful one.
In the end, it’s not all only about the size of the venue, numbers of activities, programs and sports organized that really matters, it’s also about the unity and mutual support amongst the community that we can build through this festival.
Awesome Festival + Unity = EPICNESS
I’m looking forward for a much action-fun-packed LunBawang Festival in the coming year. For those whom are considering to join the Ruran Ulung and Padan Liu’ Burung contest, you should get yourself ready now. With a longer timeframe of preparation, you could best design your traditional attire and also the “image” or action that you will perform.
All the best of luck for you! 😉
