Winners of KKTMC Club Level Humorous Speech & Speech Evaluation Contest
Our Humorous Speech contestants had us all in stitches they surprised us with humour after humour in their well-crafted and speeches. Joanna Liew stole all our hearts (especially the men’s!) as revealed secrets to understanding women and decoding the Women’s Code, adding that it is even tougher to crack than the Da Vinci Code! First-timer contestant Lily Chin ultimately surprised us (and even herself!) with her innate ability to inject humour in her speech. For someone so serious and concerned about not being funny enough for a humorous speech contest, her unassuming ‘poker face’ and strategically placed jokes had us roaring with laughter throughout her speech. Our other first-timer contestants Melissa Jilimin, Sophia Hong and Clive Chai did a splendid job braving one of Toastmasters toughest contests and showing us that they too have a funny side! We look forward to hearing more funny stories from you in the future or even Contests to come, now that you realise that nothing is impossible. There’s no stopping you now!

Evaluation Contest Test Speaker was our young ‘Professor Boy’ TM Wesley Koh, who presented his CC3 speech by role playing as a Physics teacher. Thank you, Wesley, for saying ‘yes’ to being evaluated by not one but five evaluators. I believe the person who gained most is you! Sivakumar’s calm and poised but very well rounded evaluation won the judges votes. Siva’s use of his senses eyes, ears, mind and heart proved that he can produce and evaluation that is honest, practical and encouraging. However, all other contestants Ronald Tang, Kevin Lim, Melissa Jilimin and Jamie Chieng did a brilliant job gathering their thoughts under pressure and being able to come up with such insightful evaluations in just 5 minutes.
