Meeting on 9th March 2010

Thank you for following this blog. I truly appreciate it.

This meeting with a theme "Lets March together" coupled with the word of the day "Celebrate" marks another milestone in MII history. We have IPP Leong Kok Wah practising his contest speech, the EVP Rozina Harun as acting President inducted a new member Justin Ong and our newly inducted member doing his Ice Breaker.

Acting President Rozina Harun confidently took the role and announced that our meeting on 23rd March 2010 has been cancelled as it coincide with the Area W2 Contest where our club will be taking part. She announced that IPP Leong Kok Wah and Goh Wei Lyn for Table Topics and IPP Leong Kok and Mohamad Abdullah for the International Speech Contest.

The Toastmaster of the Evening was Willy Tan and he conducted the meeting well. Induction was done by HH Wong and Chung Yoke Wai lead the Table Topics Session. Speakers for the session were not short as there are far too many volunteers. Monsieur, HH Wong, Wong chen, Philip Wong, Shizal and Dr Gan took part in the session and Wong Chen our guest took the honour of being the best TT Speaker.

Just before we break for dinner Ag President inducted Justin. It was a little confusion on the part of the ASAA Monsiuer who brought out another person who is a guest of LKW and that brought the house down with laughter. To err is human.

Dinner as usual but this time we had IPP Leong Kok Wah, Goh Wei Lyn and Jerene Yap standing at the head table for us to sing them the birthday song.

Speeches made for the evening were from IPP Leong on 'The Politics of Perception', Jerene on 'Plastic Money' and Justin on 'Just an Icebreaker'. Their evaluators were Masdiana, Anna for Leong, Goh Wei Lyn for Jerene and Dr Gan for Justin.

The General Evaluator was Adam Fung, as usual witty and humourous brought in the other evaluators like Philip for Grammarian duty, Monsiuer for counting aahs and Mohamad as time keeper.

The meeting closes wit PP Philip Wong advising members the greatness of the organisation and to drive safely home.
