Festivals - Sarikei Pineapple Festival 2011 - Miss Pesta Nanas - Costume Play

At Pesta Nanas 2010 in December, there was a Miss Sarikei contest which was more like a conventional pageant. You can leave it to the creative event organisers to change the format this year. The contest was revamped into a pageant with a traditional costume angle.

There were 15 brave contestants who did the cat walk at the Central Market on the second last night (23rd July 2011). All of them obviously went through some cat walk training before the event. Now enjoy the cat walk.

Sarong Kebaya were Southern India / Javanese influence. During my father's childhood days the native girls were mostly topless, I remember the artist Lee Man Fong painted Sarawak's native girls as such though he is mostly popular with painting done in Indonesia.
