Miss Earth Sabah 2012 - Official Blogger! =D

12 June 2012

Top 12 finalists.
I feel so lucky to be able to say that I am the official blogger for Miss Earth Sabah 2012!! =D Yes, I'll be bringing you all the behind-the-scenes updates once more, so make sure you keep your tabs opened to this blog! =P

As taken from their page, Miss Earth Sabah aims to highly and practically educate the young girls in Sabah to help create awareness for themselves, their families and especially the community of Sabah to be more serious in saving and protecting the environment. This pageant will produce beauties that possess the right criteria to represent Sabah in the National competition of Miss Malaysia Earth 2011 that will be held in Ipoh, Perak on the 27th June this year.

Throughout the competition, apart from enrolling themselves in programs that emphasize strongly on environmental protections, the participants are also required to attend various environmental activities, where they are given the opportunity to practice and voice out their green thoughts and ideas. Besides that, this event also aims to showcase and promote various tourist destinations in Sabah.

For starters, please do check out the official facebook page for Miss Earth Sabah 2012 HERE, and you can also vote for your favourite contestant on the Sutera Harbour page HERE. The contestant with the most likes will be named Miss Sutera Facebook Favourite, so let's make sure the most deserving one wins! =D

My first activity with the finalists was the Green Charity Zumba Party at the covered tennis court in The Marina Sutera.
The girls also had their time on stage!
Previous contestants as well as Queens of Miss Earth Sabah all came to shake their bootys while getting into shape, and most importantly, dance for a cause. Tickets were sold at RM25 a piece, and all proceeds went to ORED (Outreach Rural Education Program).

 Ticket holders also had the chance to win free tickets to the Grand Coronation Night through a lucky draw!
Sea of green - Young, old, men and women alike!
The crazily energetic Lolee Lopez is the official Zumba instructor for Miss Earth Sabah 2012. Lolee led the crowd in numerous dance tracks for 2 whole hours!

Besides Lolee, there were 12 other licenced Zumba instructors from as far as Sandakan who also took turns on stage.
Instructor Shirley Primus who got her licence in Jakarta last year, said that Zumba is all about the music, having fun and destressing. She also claimed that the most happening place for Zumba in the whole of Malaysia is Sabah! And I believe her; we Sabahans always take on an activity with gusto! ;p

More news to come! It's been a full week for the girls, so expect fun photos! =D
