This evening i was sending my daughter back to my mum’s house in Bau Town.. On the way at the junction to Bau and Lundu, few banners and bunting picture of a girl that i know  was hang to the lamp posts on the left and right roadside attracts my eyes.. Guest who? It’s Pandelela Rinong!!! I read the words at the buntings and banner… ‘Majlis Biruman Bisamah Pandelela’..means Dinner Ceremony with Pandelela..ahah, it’s in Bahasa Bidayuh..And the dinner ceremony will be held tomorro, 27 August 2012, at Dewan Masyarakat Kampung Jugan, Bau…but i wonder, why didn’t they state the time of the dinner? From when to when? If it’s a private party or ceremony, then no need to put up the bunting there…Hmmm…i wonder..and I’M UPSET too!! Coz it’s tomorrow and i didn’t have my opportunity to see this young warrior tomorro!! Tomorro is working day already..and i didn’t have enough time to get there for the ceremony.. I wish i could be there and take a photo with her..But it’s ok..maybe next time.. (sad mode….)

Well, here is a bit about her..

Pandelela Rinong anak Pamg was born on 02 March 1993. She is from Kampung Jugan, Bau, which means she is from the Bidayuh ethnic. At the age of seven, she was selected as a state diver and then continues her training at Sports School Bukit  Jalil in Selangor.

At the 2009 World Aquatics Championships, she won a bronze medal in the Women’s 10 m Synchronized Platform with Leong Mun Yee and placed 5th in the Women’s 10 m platform. She also competed in the Women’s 10 m platform at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

She was the flag bearer for the Malaysian contingent at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics in Singapore where she won the silver medals in the girls’ 10m platform event and 3m springboard event.

At New Delhi 2010, she won Malaysia’s first Commonwealth Games gold medal in an aquatic sport by winning the women’s 10m platform.

She became Malaysia’s first female flag bearer at the Opening Ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics where she competed in the individual 10 m platform and the 10 m platform synchronized event with her partner Leong Mun Yee.

She became the first Malaysian female athlete to win an Olympics medal, and the first Malaysian athlete to win an Olympics medal in a sport besides badminton by winning a bronze medal in the Women’s 10 m platform at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. This also makes her the first non-Malay bumiputera to win a medal for Malaysia at the Olympics.

Well, you all must know that its not only in the previous London 2012 Olympics Games that this Diving Queen won ever, but she also had won a lot of medals from other games as well..

Pandelela oh Pandelela…

Pandelela oh Pandelela..

24th August 2012..The world is still talking about this young girl.. Because of she already make a surprise to the world that she already get the Bronze Medal in the Olympic Games 2012 in London.. Not only the world, but the media is still tracking on her story.. And not only the media, but ME tooo!!! ^_^..

Few days ago, Pandelela Renong Pamg comes home to Kuching with her mother and father, arrived at Kuching International Airport and also been welcomed by the Ministry of Sarawak and the officers, paraded on an expensive car through all the way to Kuching and to the Astana for a bestowal by the Sarawak State Government to her. In the ceremony, she has been rewarded with MYR60,000 and full scholarship for her to continue her study in Australia.. It really worth her!!

Aside from the grand welcoming for this Bidayuh Bau girl, there is also a rumors and some bad talk-kind of political comments that state government(or our CM-Pehin Sri Taib Mahmud) should reward her with a shop lot for her to make business and whatsoever.. Hmmmm, i think if for me, i would rather take the full scholarship reward to further study rather than the shoplot, coz for me education is the first thing has to come out rather than that “business thing”..

Other than that, at the ceremony, other 2 divers that also from Sarawak-Brian Nickson Lomas and Tracy also gets their reward for their effort to compete in the Olympic games.

Last night, the press also comes up with the story of Pandelela and Dato’ Lee Chong Wei gets their MYR100,000 each for their medal winning in the Olympic games.. wOW!!!!

(pssttt!!! i think with the money, Pandelela can buy the 3 shoplots for her mum and dad!!) ^_^

Pandelela Won Bronze Medal!!

10 August 2012

A very sweet moment of this young lady named Pandelela Renong, the Malaysian Diver that has won on a bronze medal on the match at 4.00am Malaysia time that day.. Of course all Malaysian are proud with her, because she bring proud to us..with adding one more medal collection to Malaysia teams, aside from just silver medal that won by Dato’ Lee Chong Wei on the badminton match with China player-Lin Dan.

Pandelela will come back to Malaysia by this Tuesday, and of couurse, one Malaysia will wait for this champion-(eventhough she just won a bronze meadal, but she still a warrior for us, like Dato’ Lee Chong Wei..)

Pandelela also will get reward by Malaysian government with MYR100,000 and whole life pension money about MYR2,000 per month, starting next month! Wow!! Isn’t that worth it? And not only that, our Sarawak Chief Minister also will ask her later if she already come back for what Pandelela want from him(state).. Actually, Pandelela bring pride to us as Sarawakian peoples because she is the first women that wins medal from Malaysia, since first Olympic game.

But….instead of people are proud with Pandelela, there is also a HOT story that still become issue until now, that there is a man with Facebook name JOHARI PAIN makes the Sarawakian feel stir up, and also some of the other Malaysians….on the night that Pandelela will have a match, he (JOHARI PAIN) post on his FB wall that he will ‘CUT OFF’ his ‘thing’ (men’s sensitive part) if Pandelela Renong wins..Here is some shot from the Borneopost newspaper online about the story..

Rafflesia in Padawan Area

Rafflesia flower…is a parasitic flowering plants. Approximately about 28 species been reported discovered in Soth East Asia..Its including Malaysia…and Sarawak Borneo is a part of it, where the famous Rafflesia Flower protected area is in Gunung Gading National Park, in Lundu Sarawak..

20 July 2012…..Borneo Post newspaper reports that a new Rafflesia area been recognized in Padawan area, in Kampung Begu… Kampung Begu is about few kilometres from the Kota Padawan, and the Rafflesia site that had been discovered is just 5minutes from the road side… But aside from Kampung Begu, there is also a further up Padawan village that also have discovered Rafflesia area…

Today, 04 August 2012…I and my boss make a rekee trip with guidance by the Padawan Municipal Council Team and Sarawak Forestry officers were on our way to discover the new place.. Not the Kampung Begu, but Kampung Temurang, just a few minutes before from the Borneo Highland resort entrance.. We manage to discover about 7 buds of Rafflesia in a place, which they called as a population area..

Well, just enjoy the photos that i took just this morning…
