The month of May is special for Sabah being a whole month where the Harvest Festival or Kaamatan is celebrated by paddy farmers and non-farmers all over the state.
The grand State celebration held every May 30 and 31 will bring an end to the month-long festivity unique to Sabah.
Among the festival’s attraction is the Harvest Festival Beauty Contest or Kaamatan Unduk Ngadau where maidens vie for votes by putting their talents and charms.
Lately, children are being groomed for such talentine and many are started off at a young age by their parents and guardians.
Shopping complexes are among organisations that organise such shows to attract the public and to discover raw talents to be polished and shine
