I’ve been having a headache so bad since afternoon that I had to take a rest for a while. I woke up at 11 pm, but still feeling dizzy. I decided to take a cup of Twinings Infusions Organic Camomile tea which is said to be a pure and natural infusion to aid relaxation. I can’t afford to continue my sleep, that’s why I turn on the TV.
Apparently, the final show of Miss Indonesia 2006 has reached their climax, which is the final question given to the Big Three. They are contestant from Bali, Central Java, and North Sulawesi. Each of them is given a question which is different one and another, but the three final questions have the same difficulty level of answer. At least, it was what the host, Tantowi Yahya, said to the audience. Below are not their transcripts for sure, it’s literally only based on my memory. *grin*
First question is given to contestant from Bali:
Q #1: Apa perbedaan hakiki antara kepemimpinan laki-laki dan wanita? (What is the crucial difference between man and woman leadership?)
She said in short (in Bahasa Indonesia): Perbedaan hakiki antara kepemimpinan laki-laki dan wanita adalah wanita mampu memimpin dengan menggunakan rasional, emosional, dan profesional sekaligus. (The main difference between man and woman leadership is that woman can lead by the combination of rational, emotional, and professional at a time –which supposed to be an advantage, she said)
Somehow I don’t understand why she said so. I think most people know that we are not allowed to bring along our personal emotion in professional circumstances. And it happened to be woman’s disadvantage in leadership.
On the other hand, the other two finalists prefer to answer the question in English –at a lower intermediate level, I suggest. Well, perhaps they have heard about Nadine’s broken-English in Miss Universe 2006 interview last time.
Q #2 to contestant from Central Java: Indonesia saat ini sering dilanda berbagai bencana, jika Anda menjadi pemerintah, apa yang akan Anda lakukan? (What would you do if you were the government of Indonesia, to overcome national disasters happening continuously lately?)
She said (in her own words, of course –as far as I remember, LOL.): If I am the government, I will help the victims of tsunami and earthquake as soon as possible and give them help as much as I can. To rebuild the school and bring life back.
Q #3 is given to contestant from North Sulawesi: Jika Anda terpilih sebagai Miss Indonesia 2006, apakah ini akan mengubah cita-cita Anda selama ini? (If you were chosen to be Miss Indonesia 2006, would you change your idea of life or not?)
She said (with a little bit of stammer): If I am Miss Indonesia, I will able to help a lot of people in every country because I have connection everywhere. –She doesn’t mention YES or NO, making the host asked her for the second time boldly– Yes, I will change, because I will be popular and have connection everywhere.
The last two finalists have easier questions, I suppose. At least, for me. Conditional sentence like “if you were this or that…” giving you a lot of imaginary lists of answers with a freedom to make bullshits as much as you willing to, LOL. In a good-wrap sentences, will be more beneficial.
For example; if I were given Q #2, my answer would be, “Well these continuous national disasters are happened to be the God’s will. There is nothing I can do to stop it happening again. (Nice intro is a must!) However, besides helping the victims and reconstruct the nation, I would try to promote people’s awareness to anticipate another tsunami or earthquakes that might happen via press. Hopefully there will be fewer victims if people already know how to evacuate themselves during the tsunami or earthquakes.” (I’m expecting to have a standing ovation from the audience! LOL. Silly me.)
As for Q #3, I’ll give my emotional answer; “Nope, of course not. I am medical-doctor-gonnabe and it will never change forever! Otherwise my mom will kick me out of the house. Being Miss Indonesia 2006 might be a great achievement for me, but 50 million rupiahs (not to mention about GST deduction prize) is not enough to bring back my family investment to enroll my med-school. However, I’m definitely sure the title of Miss Indonesia 2006 will bring me a lot of patients in the future.” Hahahahaha….sorry, can’t help it….LOL…..
BTW, the winner is contestant from North Sulawesi. I was giving my support to Bali because she’s the prettiest of the Big Three. I don’t even know their names. Congratulations anyway for Miss Indonesia 2006, and good luck to pursue Miss World in Poland by September this year.
