Miss Sandra Angelia

Sandra Angelia Politically aware young lady Sandra Angelia scores a crushing victory for East Java in Miss Indonesia 2008.

Miss Indonesia 2008

At the Jakarta Convention Center on the night of 13th May Sandra Angelia from East Java became Miss Indonesia 2008, chosen by a seven panel jury which included our hyper-nationalist politician friend from Golkar Yudhi Chrisnandi. Sandra was also chosen as Miss Favorit by the SMS voting masses.

Also Ran

Kartika Indah Pelapory from Maluku was Runner Up I while Priscilla Yvonne Supit from North Sulawesi was Runner Up II, but enough about them.

Preacher Man's Daughter

Sandra is the happy result of a union between Christian pastor Yusak Hadisiswantoro and Asti Tanuseputra. Her grandfather, Abraham Alex Tanuseputra, is the founder of the Bethany "Successful Families" Church.

Eastern Values Girl

Sandra says she is not at all used to wearing skimpy, revealing clothing, and she is very aware that as a preacher's daughter she has to be careful in this area.

Sandra Angelia

On the vitally important bikini issue (see past Indonesian beauty pageant winners' problems with this - Nadine Chandrawinata) Sandra was asked by journalists - would she be willing to wear a bikini at Miss World 2008 in the Ukraine? Sandra says

I have to wear a swimsuit in the competition, that's no problem. But if it can be negotiated I will stick to eastern values, that is I will wear a one-piece swimsuit.

Smart

Sandra is an educated girl and after fleeing Indonesia at the age of 13 in the wake of the May 1998 riots she eventually studied architecture at the University of Western Australia in Perth. This may or may not have helped her face the final key question put by the judges, this being

Indonesia is a country rich in natural wealth but so many of its people are very poor and it is a largely agrarian economy. Which economic sector would you prioritise if you were leader?

Sandra took the crowd by surprise, and won the admiration of the judges, by going off on a tangent that the most important thing was to ensure that the law was upheld and applied properly in Indonesia, and that other things would follow from this.


Triumphant moment.

    I would like to pinpoint a few things. First, I heard that Miss Indonesia 2008 is a Chinese Indonesian, what on earth is wrong with the judge?Are we native Indonesian people do not have beautiful girl like her?I bet we do,and we do have a lot. The reasons behind all of these, as far as my research the current Miss Indonesia is the daughter of a Bethany priest, if I’m not wrong his father was called Yusak. And I reckon that she is a Christiant too. And as far as my research goes, I heard a lot of people saying a bad things about the Bethany church. They do a lot of dirty works and con people. I heard from people that this Bethany church is working to “steal” people money and maybe, I said maybe, he could use the money to buy the judge to win her in this competition. I suspect that this conspiracy might happened in Miss Indonesia 2008. So I leave all the opinion to you all?? Is Miss Indonesia 2008 fight and won the crown in the stage or simply by the money that his father give to the judge??

    Many so called “pribumis” think surely like the wannabe “pribumi” Muhamad Bin Habib Awi.
    What’s wrong with the beautiful Indonesian names, Habib Awi? Why don’t you call yourself Mangundikerto, Suparman, Paing or Rebo? :) :)
    Chinese Indonesian are nowadays accepted in Indonesian? Equality? Ha, ha …
    Habib Awi, you’re simply sick in your mind, like many other of your species. :)

    Is Miss Indonesia 2008 fight and won the crown in the stage or simply by the money that his father give to the judge??
    And the judges are “pribumis”? Ooops, they are corruptible …?!

    And I reckon that she is a Christiant too.
    What’s wrong if the Miss Indonesia 2008 is a Christian girl? At least she wouldn’t blast herself among innocent crowd, wouldn’t she?

  11. avatar k1m1 says:

    To Muhamad Bin Habib Awi:

    You should go to doctor and check your brain my friend. And also if you said her father gave money to judges, which are you called them “pribumis”, you just judge your own people a corruptible person,
    hahahaha.

  12. avatar Rob says:

    I do not know about others but I thought it was called the Miss Indonesia 2008 Competition and not the Miss Pribumi, or Miss Chinese Indonesian, of the Miss Muslimah, or the Miss Christian competition.

    I am surprised that you did not see an Australian conspiracy to subvert the Indonesian way of life seeing she studied for a time in Australian…as Mach Jabber might say, the Aussiesdidit!

    But don’t despair Muhamad bin Habib Awi because if they have a “Bitter & Twisted Indonesia 2008″ competition you will win hands down and it won’t cost you a single Rupiah as the judges will find you absolutely believable!

  13. avatar Yuri says:

    Muhamad Bin Habib Awi, are you a rasis? You simply sick in your mind.

    What’s wrong with chinese indonesian, don’t you agree that sandra is such a beautiful girl. Or maybe you haven’t seen such beautiful girl like sandra. Maybe until this time, you only see monkey in zoo.

    I’m japanese born indonesia, and I have my right to be citizen in this country. So is it wrong if sandra chinese indonesian. Many other like me, but so little people like you, judging someone as you like.

    My religion is budhis, and I don’t complaining another religion like you did. What research are you doing? My opinion, try to search potion to heal your sick & dumb mind.

    Anyway, Congratulations Sandra.
    Good luck and may your star become more brighter.

  14. avatar Richard says:

    The best is yet to come Sandra! Good on you!
    Congratulations and all the best for the Miss World 2008. All of Bethany Sydney sending you best wishes.

    Havent been back to Indo for quite sometimes, so i was surprised to hear the comment of Muhammad Bin Habib Awi. Anyway, i believe in equality, let us work together to build our beloved country, Indonesia.

    Back to Sandra, all the best and GBU.

    Cheers

    To mr. Muhamad Bin Habib Awi :
    Hi gentlement…. God created all of us with our differences and uniquenes. Each of us were born with our special gift which eternally unchangeable. None of us ever ask God to order our existence when were born, so does Sandra, and also you and I. Sandra, and everybody else… never ask GOD to be chinese, javanese, timorese, australian or whatever….. it is already given. Please don’t blame God for His creativites, which means don’t narrow minded why other people are different with you…. Narrow minded people (or negative thinker) usually complaining for the things that actually cannot be change forever, if they don’t repent they will going sick and slowly dying.
    Religious man are those who love God and all other creation of God (no matter they are different, but people from core of devil residence always full of hate and very agitative… Mr. Muhammad, be like Muhammad the profet (sunnah rasul is not only having the same name with Muhammad but be behave like Muhammad), also be like Jesus who teach you about love and forgive….. Christian or Chinese is not your enemies, but your real enemies is the anger and hate in your self….. You should fight your enemies which going to destroy you from inside of you. May Lord give a new heart…. and bless you too.
    And for Sandra, congretulations and may the Lord Jesus richly bless you….

    Miss Indonesia different with Puteri Indonesia. Nadine is Puteri Indonesia, the previous Miss indonesia is Camedia Adisti I think… this miss indonesia will follow miss world, but puteri indonesia will follow miss universe, I was think that’s also same celebration. but in fact it’s different. :)

    Congrat to shandra.

    Hei alot of things to think but about chinesse, pribumis or whatsoever, whoever good and capable to do good things, they’ll win… ok… chirstian, buddist, moslem ect ect also have their own chance… ok.

    i knew sandra deserve to be miss indonesia.. and she also deserve to be the next miss world 2008.. ciayooo.. keep holding on to the LORD who have given you strength…. XD

  25. avatar rima says:

    chinese indonesian? they’re indonesian. period.
    they’re no different than javanese or sundanese or ambonese or bataknese or acehnese or balinese indonesian. they have as much rights and obligations as the other indonesians. its time to stop labeling racial heritage on indonesians and just label them with ‘good and kind samaritan indonesians’ or ‘corrupt, ignorant and intolerant indonesians’.

    muhamad bin whatshisface, if he is in fact an indonesian, is obviously the latter.

  26. avatar reenya says:

    Muhamad Bin Habib Awi, are you F*CKING out of your F*CKING mind???? get real!!!
    Damn, you’re sick! go get your self a help!

    As far as my research goes …. as far as my research goes … yeah well, that’s only as far as you’re going to go, Mr. Habib Awi.

    The Miss Indonesia pageant has nothing to do with religion nor races so stop being such a pig about it and if you have so much spare time researching about Miss Indonesia (bet you like that sort of stuff don’t you), why don’t you shed some money for your own “native people” instead of blabbering about favoritism and conspiracy theory – it’s just a freaking pageant, stop being paranoid, lol.

    Better yet, why don’t you focus on the Miss Muslimah pageant, maybe that will be more like the kind thing you’re into.
