Fellow Toastmasters, ladies and gentlemen,

March 1990; 24 years ago, they brought Kota Kinabalu Toastmasters Club into the world. Thank you Charter Members of Kota Kinabalu Toastmasters Club for Realizing the Dream of starting Toastmasters in Sabah, Land Below the Wind. Present in the meeting were Datuk Adeline Leong, DTM, Abu Bakar Sheriff, DTM, Christine Yap, DTM, and Sir S.S. Anand. Thank you, for taking time off your busy schedules to join us in our auspicious Grand Meetnig.

Thank you for coming to our club, and thank you members, for inviting friends to share the evening with us.

This meeting, the Table Topics Session was conducted by our not-so-baby-anymore member TM Kamilia Kamaruzaman. I feel myself reflect on many different aspects of my life as I listen to her questions, and the members & guests Stand Up and Be Counted as they answer the questions;
i) Why fit in when you were born to stand out?
ii) Is there a time when giving up ever make sense?
iii) When you think of home, what specifically do you think of?
iv) How have Toastmasters changed you life?
Thank you TM Kamilia. It's a pleasure to see you in action. :)

We also had the pleasure of listening to four of our members embark on the speeches;

TM Joseph Raj spoke on  Nadi Shodhan Pranayama; Breathe In, Breathe Out.
Intan Salwana Anis, CC spoke on The Day I Lost My Temper; take charge of your life, and do not let others take away who you really are. 
Nora Liew, CC did a mock up of a radio interview; and she was representing the Organising Committee of the Borneo Marathon.
Nanthakumar Kumaresan, CC delivered his ACB10 entitled 32850 hours. Dreams; Believe in it, have the courage, and just do it. 

With the completion of his ACB10, he is now known as Advance Communicator Bronze Nanthakumar Kumaresan. You Shine with Joy as you prove that persistence, effort and diligence pay off. As mentioned by Past President Joanna Liew, we can see the difference from your first five speeches in the Competent Communicator Manual, and how you have progressed towards your final speech in you Advance Communicator Bronze Manual. We wish you a safe journey is India, and let the friendship grow through the distance :)

General Evaluator Vijay Panickar, and Team of Exco 2013-2014, good job on making the preparations for the meeting; indeed, United We Stand to Grow & Succeed.

Attached are some photos taken during our meeting :)

Till our next meeting, (tomorrow!), thank you for Loving the Journey :)

...from the heart
