Rejanah shared that participants will be introduced to cultural norms through visits to places of interest such as the Sumangkap Gong Factory and Bavangazo Longhouse in Matunggong.
“They will also visit other places of interest to be determined later,” she said.
“We are doing a hybrid sort of pageant, as we will carry it out both online and physically. In this respect, we have outlined our own terms and conditions for participation,” she stressed.
