By now, most of you, Sabahans have probably heard about, seen, or for the guys, dropped your jaws when you saw the 12 beauties that were selected to compete against each other to be the voice of Sabah in making the world a better place. And in this case, to make the world greener and healthier.
Personally, I prefer to see the girls… or should I say, ladies as not competing but working with each other and I think all of them are already winners. They were chosen for specific reasons, right? And each of them, I’m sure, have their own strongest point which can compliment the other finalists. Wouldn’t it be great if there is not just one representative of Sabah’s mother nature but a whole 12 of them? And they would travel around Sabah and why not the world too and constantly promoting healthy activities and giving awesome speeches that can be the trigger for people to act for the environment.
They would be the Power Rangers of Sabah. Except that they are two times more in numbers, and instead of killing monsters and destroying buildings, they’ll protect the environment. They also wouldn’t wear black, pink, red, or yellow, but only green outfits. And I would call them The Green Dozen. Wakakaa.
Well, that’s just what I think. And be that silly thought as it may, the competition still needs a winner, yes? So, here are them babes… oops, sorry. Typo. I mean, here are the Miss Earth Sabah 2012 finalists.

I should win Miss Earth Sabah 2012 because I would want to be a role model to the society to heal our dying world. Firstly, to help promote the conservation of our beautiful forest and encourage our present government to plant more trees & greenery in our city. Secondly, work together with the authorities in curbing the emitting of gasses that is harmful to the environment. Thirdly, to propose that ‘Everyday is a NO Plastic Bag day’ this way we could lessen the pollution rate, be it land, water or air. This is because plastic bags are known to be the one of the biggest contribution to pollution in our state. It could be tangible or non-tangible but both brings negativity to us.

I have no clue whatsoever of what kind of challenge is such but it usually means buying stuff without the use of plastic bags. I was also thinking that maybe it’s a challenge of who can carry the most groceries without the use of bags. That would be a really fun event, right? Jaz kidin.
That’s it for now. I’m looking forward to seeing pictures of the zumba party. Not that I wanna see them, but, you know, nevermind… wakakaa.
