Miss International (Miss International Beauty or The International Beauty Pageant) is an annual international beauty pageant held since 1960. Along with its rivals Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss Earth contests, Miss International is one of the four largest beauty pageants in the world in terms of the number of national-level competitions to participate in the world finals

Miss International is part of the Big Four international beauty pageants.

The current Miss International titleholder is Bea Santiago of the Philippines who was crowned on December 17, 2013 in Tokyo, Japan.

The pageant was created in Long Beach, California, USA in 1960 after the departure of the Miss Universe pageant to Miami Beach. Hosted in Long Beach until 1967, the pageant moved to Japan from 1968–1970, being hosted each year in the same city as the Expo ’70. For 1971 and 1972, it was held in Long Beach again, but since that time it has been held annually in Japan.

The pageant is also called “Miss International Beauty”. Contestants are expected to serve as “Ambassadors of Peace and Beauty”, demonstrating tenderness, benevolence, friendship, beauty, intelligence, ability to take action, and, most importantly, a great international sensibility. The ultimate goal of the Miss International beauty pageant is to promote world peace, goodwill, and understanding.

In 2013 edition, for the first time in history, the winner of Miss International 2012 Ikumi Yoshimatsu of Japan didn’t not crown her successor; instead Miss International 2008 Alejandra Andreu took over in passing on the crown to Bea Santiago of the Philippines. This is also the first time when a past winner crowned two Miss Internationals, one in 2009 where she crowned Anagabriela Espinoza of Mexico.

perjalanan ini..

27 tahun sudah sastra mengembara dalam kehidupan ini, boleh dibilang fana, namun lebih bijaknya sastra sebut indah. dalam 27 tahun setelah terlahir dari rahim Ibu saya tercinta, 18 tahun lebih, saya habiskan untuk jalan-jalan di Sawah.

Iya, hanya jalan-jalan di Sawah, Tegalan areal Tabanan – Bali. Kampung halaman sastra tepatnya di Desa Penganggahan, sangat asri dengan terasering sawah nya nan indah. Setiap hari mengantar Ayah Ibu memacul disawah, menuai bibit dan menanamnya.
Suatu hari hujan sangat deras datang, yang mengakibatkan tanah sawah terasering kami yang mungil itu…longsor.

Mengecillah lahan sawah kami, kian hari sastra semakin merasa sedih dan duka. Namun, sastra remaja, tidak mau menyerah begitu saja. Memulai belajar tentang kepariwisataan, training disemua usaha bidang jasa wisatawan, dan akhirnya memandu wisata hingga detik surat ini tertulis.

Setiap hari, berkeliling Bali bahkan Jawa memandu wisatawan lokal maupun asing dari berbagai belahan dunia, kecuali orang ‘eskimo’..heheee

Begitu indah pematang sawah,
begitu riuh gemercik air persawahan yang tertata apik dengan sistem aliran irigasi air SUBAK BALI-nya.
hari demi hari, semakin banyak bangunan disisi jalan persawahan tersebut, hingga kini, sudah semakin sulit terlihat dari sisi jalan.

Hingga akhirnya seringkali, sastra permisi kepada pemilik hotel,restaurant dan pemilik rumah untuk melewati kediaman mereka hanya untuk mengantar tamu melihat pemandangan dari dalam kediaman pribadi mereka tadi.

agak sungkan, terpaksa !
yah, bagaimana lagi..
Namun ada beberapa penduduk Bali dan atau pengusaha,yang masih sangat menjaga aliran air irigasi SUBAK BALI tersebut.
Dengan membiarkannya mengalir melewati jalur-jalur rumah/kediaman mereka ..sampai jauh..

Bali sangat ditopang perekonomiannya oleh pertanian (yang menghasilkan pemandangan nan indah), oleh sebab itu, wisatawan dapat melepas dahaga ditengah ke-KUNO-an itu.

Adakah tindakan yang lebih arif lagi dalam tetap menjaga AJEG-nya budaya SUBAK BALI kita? irigasi Air yang tertata sempurna, hingga dapat membagikan air secara ADIL MERATA kepada kita,

‘tanpa kita sadari..’

Salam SUBAK !

“Om Swastiastu”

Ada rasa tanggung jawab sosial kami rasakan, sesaat menjelang senja setelah lelah menapaki kaki pegunungan di areal Desa Petang, Kabupaten Badung. Bersebelahan dengan Desa Payangan, Kabupaten Gianyar, kami jelajahi jalanan penuh makna, setapak dengan sesekali tergelincir, licin. “Kemarin sempat hujan deras disini”, kata Bli Wayan, instruktur arung jeram (rafting) kami, dengan penuh suka cita kami sedikit berlarian turun bukit menuju sungai Ayung yang terkenal deras itu. “Raft/Rakit nya bisa terguling nga ya?, takut niihhh..” begitu sahutan seorang sahabat kami.

“HOOOREEEe….” teriakan itu tiba-tiba mengagetkan kami, oh, ternyata kami sudah dekat dibawah, dengan sungai Ayung. Suara gemuruh…bbbyyuuuurrr…aliran sungai Ayung terdengar begitu indah menyejukkan. Sekilas lupa dengan penat bekerja dan bekarya mengejar setoran dan dikejar hutang…hhahahaaaahhaa…

“bbyuurrrrr…hahah..hhaaa.” teman-teman semua menceburkan dirinya “dingin bangetssszz euy..ayoooo” kata salah satu temen cewek. “iya-iya” aku menyahut sambil asyik merekam mereka dengan kamera pocket mini yang selalu kubawa. “jeprat..jepreett..” ku photo mereka. Ada air terjun yang begitu indah nya, seperti mandi shower, namun yang ini di alam bebas, teriak sepuasnya sampai ‘ngeheekk’ bebas, bebas..beeee..bassss…

Air itu begitu sejuk, dingin, menenangkan, kami berdiskusi, akankah air ini akan tetap begini? “ayo..ayo silahkan naik” pangil Bli Wayan, Instruktur rafting kami. “let’s goo…” sahut teman-teman gembira riang. Kami ber-dua belas (12) orang, dengan 6 raft (perahu karet) yang sudah terstandar keselamatan internasional. Bli Wayan segera memberi penjelasan tentang bagaimana cara kita mendayung serta kode-kodenya. “Dayung…” katanya, artinya kita mendayung untuk maju. Memburu ‘jumping’ (air terjun agak curam kebawah)…”wwAAAAAAoaooowwwwww…” teriak teman-teman muda-mudi Subak Bali semua, “byuuurrrr….” raftnya pun tercebur dan terpental lagi…satu per satu…semua bersorak “HORAARYYYYyy..” gembira riang. Teman-teman hepi banget..

“eh ada monyet cari minum” teriak seorang gadis, “iya eh lucu nya” sambut pemuda lagi. Kami melihat pemandangan bagai goa dalam mendayung raft perahu karet tersebut, ada air terjun kecil, lucu-lucu, indah banget. Ada pematang sawah nan hijau, ada air terjun besar banget, kami bermain-main sebentar, photo-photo, shooting, dan ada yang hampir keseret arus…hiihiii…tapi enjoy..

tiduran di air, renang-renang dikit, mengapung, aahhhggg…

teman-teman lain mesti coba neh..

terbesit kegundahan di hati kami, akankah air Pulau Bali kami ini tetap begini?
