KKTMC 14th Meeting of the Term 2013-2014... From the Heart

"The first step into achieving your goal, is to believe and imagine that you're there"
~TM Jeremiah Mojuntin

Fellow Toastmasters, ladies and gentlemen,

Before we proceed with our 15th Meeting of the Term, happening tomorrow, let's recap on our Description: https://mail.google.com/mail/e/B6014th Meeting of the TermDescription: https://mail.google.com/mail/e/B60 which was successfully held on the 28th January 2014, hosted by our favourite (did I mean my favourite?) Nora Liew, CC.

She started off the meeting, announcing that the theme of the meeting was, "Don't Worry, Be Happy". And then she brought us all to stand up and dance to the song, "Don't Worry, Be Happy". Though I couldn't quite join in the beat, I observed that everyone had a good laugh. Their muscles sure were eased. Thanks Nora, for the light and easy warm up session :)

In his Speech #3 from the Competent Communicator Manual, TM Jeremiah Mojuntin spoke on "Overthinking and Overdaydreaming". Thank you JJ; your imagination sure is, the Description: https://mail.google.com/mail/e/B60QuintessenceDescription: https://mail.google.com/mail/e/B60 of you. 

TM Emylia Marianne Phillip's Speech #5, also from the the Competent Communicator Manual was entitled "Wise Decisions". Her 3 powerpoints are;
1. Make a plan;
2. Have an accountability partner
3. Set a deadline

Yours truly delivered her ACB9; Project #4 A Touching Story from the Storytelling Manual. Entitled "Beside You", she retold the story of how her Mother supported her Father through the finish line in the exam for the 2nd DAN Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. 

This meeting, we caught a few Toastmasters Family (by blood, seriously) present. Among them are:
1. Our very own Past President of the Club; Francis Tham, DTM & Daughter, Kimberley Tham
2. TM Joseph Raj and her daughters, Julia Raj and Judith Raj
3. The Liew Sisters, Joanna Liew, ACB, CL and Nora Liew, CC
4. The Iskandar Family; Iskandar Ahmad, DTM, Fauziah Mat Noor, CTM, CL, Ily Mumtaz Iskandar, CC, CL & the rest of the crew....................

Wasn't it a Quintessence to attend such a meeting with the strong seniors present? For me, it sure is :) And oh! Thank you Madam Grammarian Jamie Chiengfor the word of the evening.

Below are a few moments captured during our meeting. Check 'em out!
