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….)

Homecoming

Hundreds welcome Pandelela home updated! ….Reports by The Borneo Post..

KUCHING: Hundreds of fans were at the Kuching International Airport today to welcome home Olympic bronze medalist Pandelela Rinong Pamg, Traisy Vivien Tukiet and Bryan Nickson Lomas.

They included Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Alfred Jabu Numpang, Social Development Minister Tan Sri William Mawan Ikom and Infrastructure Development and Communication Minister Dato Sri Michael Manyin Jawong.

Pandelela and fellow Sarawakian divers Bryan Nickson and Traisy Vivien were greeted with sape music, a traditional dance and garlands upon their arrival at Gate 8.

There was a frenzied clicking of cameras and camera phones as every moment of their arrival was busily documented by not just media personnel but also the public.

Security was tight as the trio made their way out of the arrival hall with state dignitaries to the VIP waiting lounge for a brief press conference.

The divers were bombarded with questions about their post-Olympics feelings and future plans, with the main focus on the cheerful bronze medalist who answered questions with ease.

Pandelela then proceeded to autograph posters provided by The Borneo Post for those present before being ushered outside to meet the public, who had been waiting for her homecoming since 11am.

Thunderous cheers from family members, friends and fans were heard when they finally got to see Pandelela.

Banners and posters declaring “Pandelela … Bidayuh Boleh” and “Sarawak Loves Pandelela” were seen everywhere as everyone clamored forward to take her photo.

A motorcade, organized by Regas Premium Auto, brought Pandelela, Bryan and Traisy for a formal welcoming ceremony at the Astana.

As Pandelela left the airport in an open-top Mini Cooper escorted by police outriders and members of the Borneo Island Big Bikers, shouts and cheers of pride continued to be heard at the VIP car park area as fans and well-wishers rushed to take final shots of the teenager who has succeeded in captivating Sarawakian hearts.

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!!) ^_^
