Biography of interview                                               

En. Swandya Bin Idris was born in Kelana Village  Tawau on 10 February 1968. He is the son of the Kelana Village identity. His father Mr. Haji Idris, was a businessman in a small anchovy ethnic Bajau, while his mother Mrs. Munirah Ahmad is the son of ethnic identity Tidong  Kelana Village. His father came from Semporna and settled in the Kelana Village since married his mother.

He received his early education at Sekolah Kebangsaan Kelana Tawau and further studies at the secondary level, the Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Kinabutan, Tawau. This is because there is no secondary school in the village at that time. He had lived in a dorm and separated from his parents. He completed his studies at SPVM in Tawau Technical Secondary School. Upon completion of grade five at SMK Teknik Tawau he helped his father work in the Kelana Village anchovies. In addition, he was active in the association since the secondary level by following the Village Youth Football Club Kelana.
He was married to a girl who comes from Semporna Sabah in 1992. He was acquainted with his wife, Lepa-Lepa Festival at Semporna Sabah. He and the village youth to follow the competition. He and members of the group won the competition in 1990. This is the first time he did the village of his birth. He has been blessed with two children of 12 year old Nurul Asyikin and Nurul Farah Hani was 4 years old. After his father died, he resumed his company anchovies. He marketed the anchovies to the market district of Sandakan and Lahad Datu.
After the interview session, we are treated to lunch by Mr. Swandy and his wife. We serve traditional dishes of the nation bajau“ Amangan Sagol , bambangan, piutu, sambal ikan kering, and kerabu mangga. I am amazed at the Bugis ethnic meals are served.  Although, next to the Bajau   people, but  I never felt like today's traditional dishes. While eating, I took the opportunity to speak to her to know this family better.

After a full meal, we sat on the porch of the house while studying the family album En. Swandy. We opened my son's album and see pictures sulongnya camp at school. We saw pictures En. Swandy in the camp and asked him. He explained that he also a member of  the Association Parent Teacher at the Sekolah Kebangsaan Kelana as his eldest son to school there. He held the office of a small Committee.  However,  he participated in any activities organized by the PIBG. For example, he participated in the Program Village Co-Curriculum 2010 School. He helps teachers take the bamboo in the forest to set up camp students. In addition, he also provides personal assistance in the form of drinking water for the camp participants. His name is no stranger among the teachers because of its voluntary behavior.
In the afternoon at 4.00 pm, Mr. Swandy took us a  walk  in  the  village is an area of    ​​48 000 hectares, the Proton Saga Iswara, owned by him. We were also accompanied by his youngest child was 4 years old. He took us to visit a family-owned dried anchovies. He said that the company was his father's legacy. He just connects this company. His father is a business undertaking in scale only anchovies. But he has been developing markets outside the region. He has 13 employees and a supervisor who is his own brother Mr. Mahmud Bin Hj. Idris. He was not just trawl the anchovies, but dry and gred anchovies. He aspires to penetrate the international market at a later time. He was also awarded the Good Fishing Kelana Village of Agro Bank in conjunction with Hari Entrepreneur Tawau area. He also aims to add ten more “bagang” anchovy trawl as demand increases. Market prices also increased by the current economic climate.
Then, he took us to meet with the Village Development Committee members who happened to Kelana gathered at town hall while drinking in the evening. The arrival we were greeted by friendly villagers in the town hall. Very high cultural politeness is owned by the villagers. We have eaten cakes Bajau tradition of “ penyiaram, kuih sepit, bahulu bakar and pais pisang”. Afternoon tea while we chat and get acquainted. Although my husband was born here but his relationship with the villagers are not so familiar as he was studying and working in the city. He also rarely return home because time was limited. Through the stories I find that villagers En. Swandy a  respectable addition to the Village Head. His contribution in maintaining harmony in the village is very appreciated by the villagers Kelana. He is often in conjunction with members of the village neighborhood watch at night. He showed concern for the welfare of the village since time immemorial. This attitude caused the villagers consider him a public figure.

We went home at 5.00 pm. I came home with a thousand wonderful memories of the etched in memory.
