KKTMC 15th Meeting of the Term 2013-2014... From the Heart

If music is the food of love, play on.

Thank you Table Topics Master, TM Joseph Raj for bringing that quote to our meeting. Beautiful :)

Fellow Toastmasters, ladies and gentlemen,

Gong Xi Fa Cai, Jinnian Kuaile, and Happy Chap Goh Meh. I hope the 15 days celebration meant as much to you as it meant to me. Visiting and wishing friends, from near and far :)

Thank you to our Toastmaster of the Evening Eilvane Chieng and her team of role players, for hosting this Description: New Year themed, 15th Meeting of the Term 2013-2014 Description: I love seeing all the men and ladies come dressed in their traditional Chinese costume. I’ve always thought ladies in Cheongsam look so elegant and beautiful; and this evening, is no different. 

Two of our members delivered their speechs:

TM Emylia Phillip delivered a speech entitled, “My Everything”. Telling us about her pet dog, Molly, she played with her Vocal Variety in the test of completing her Speech #6.

In his ACB6, Speech Project #4 Moral of the Story, Nanthakumar Kumaresan, CC retold the story of the “Three Little Pigs”. 

The Table Topics Session was conducted by our TTM Joseph Raj. 

He threw us with a few questions ranging from the theme, CNY to the random questions pertaining to the world. 

Jasmine Leong, DTM proved her impavid (scratch that), impavidness (scratch that), impavidity (that's the right one!) when she raised her hand to the very first question posted by the TTM; “Is there a link between the colour red and prosperity?” Good job VPE Vijay Panickar- for putting Jas in that position. Keep it up :P

Intan Salwana Anis, CC shared with us the benefits of eating Mandarin Oranges; high in Vitamin C, and etc… 

Nanthakumar Kumaresan, CC told us how difficult it was for him to get leave during CNY, and how he had to cover extra shifts to make up for it. But it was all worth it as he get to spend his time with family and friends during the festive season.

Eilvane Chieng, CC elaborated on the quote by Shakespeare; “If music is the food of love, play on.” She claims that she does not play much musical instruments, but she sings. And as I know her; Eilvane sings her heart out :)

TM Kamilia Kamaruzaman answered the question, “Is Facebook a boon or a bane?”. She told us, how she finds (the few people on her friends list) who updates their status per hour, annoying. Oops :D

Ily Mumtaz Iskandar, CC, CL (visiting member from Monash University Toastmasters Club) reverted to the question “Is it possible to hide your Facebook activity from your spouse?” in her case, her mother. She stated that, there's something that she cannot let her mother know, that means she shouldn't be doing that something at all. 

Immediate Past President Jamie Chieng answered the question about how important education is. Being in the education system herself, she strongly agree with the statement “Education is a Powerful Weapon” by Nelson Mandela.

At the end of the meeting, Grammarian Richard A. Gontusan gave a very comprehensive report. Thank you DTM Richard, I always learn so much from your grammarian reports. Always. 

Thank you DTM Ronald Tang for the General Evaluation. And for coming dressed to the theme, too! :))

Best Dressed Male: VPE Vijay Panickar

Special thanks to our members, IPP Jamie Chieng, VPE Vijay Panickar, VPM Nora Liew, TM Dean Yee, Secretary Fauziah Mat Noor, and DTM Yee That Hian (all the way from Australia!) for inviting guests over to the meeting.
