Couldn't feel more proud!
Congrats Dewi Liana for winning 2014 Miss World Talent category. Her singing was simply mesmerizing that sent a shiver down my spine! It is the first time ever that a Malaysian brought home a title from the Miss World beauty pageant competition, and to top it off, she's a Sarawakian :)
And when I think back, the first Malaysian woman who brought back an Olympic medal was also from Sarawak. She was our darling Pandelela Rinong.
With Pandelela in 2012, during a meet and greet session with fans after coming home from winning her Bronze Olympic medal. Right pic, with Dewi in 2010, when she was one of the contestants for our Miss Fitness competition. Who would have thought, she would be among one of the hundred over most beautiful women in world competing for the Miss World 2014 crown.
I am just honored, that I have met and spent a bit of time with these two awesome talented individuals. I may not ever have that chance ever again.. Dewi has the most beautiful skin, with a beautiful singing voice and crazy tall! Told her she better take a seat for our pics together because I'd look like a dwarf standing next to her :) Pandelela is super shy. Very soft spoken, humble and she appears to be just like any other teenage girl.
I just cannot imagine how proud their parents must be. They sure have made the whole nation and a lot of Sarawakians very very proud :) THANK YOU DEWI AND PANDELELA!!
