Miss Tourism Indonesia 2009

Miss Tourism Jakarta 2009 Andara Rainy has been selected as Miss Tourism Indonesia 2009 on 7 November 2009.

In an interview with Kompas, Andara, born in Jakarta on 25 November 1987, said that she will make efforts to improve the image of Indonesia abroad.
When she was asked about terrorism that has marred our image, she said that she will convince people abroad that it is not a big problem anymore because we have successfully beat them, and 99 per cent of the Indonesian people are against terrorists.

With this achievement, Andara received Rp. 36 million, one year stay at a luxurious apartment at Permata Hijau, South Jakarta, and scholarship from the London School of PR Jakarta. Besides, she will represent Indonesia to compete in the Miss Tourism International 2009 on December 2009.

So far, I have not read any bad (or weird) news about Andara Rainy, and I really hope that there would not any in the future. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

In front of me on my desk is this little slogan and the beautiful logo which goes with it: "visit INDONESIA year 2009".

I don't think these yearly actions were extremely successful. But with this gorgeous lady I get high hopes for the next one: 'visit Indonesia 2010'.

I agree with you that she would be more successful than the current
Visit Indonesia 2009 campaign.
