Good Evening extinguished readers, Welcome back to another exciting blog entry!
This week, the MII Toastmasters club successfully Installed the 19th Executive Committee during their 19th Installation night held last Tuesday on the 13th of July 2010. (For those heading to the 3D+1 box office to buy your tickets for Jack Neo's New movie "Money not enough: 4D" the number to buy is 1913 and 7201)
... That's just a joke, I tell it every time.
The theme for the Installation night was Black & White. And as an incentive, The Best Dressed of the evening would be given a prize as well (even if he or she did not come up to flaunt it).
Guests from as far as the Allianz Toast Masters club consisting of their President, Mr. Charles and his Exco members, Winnie and Azlina travelled down to attend our Installation of which we are truly grateful. Amongst the other guests of honor who graced our session with their presence was Past President Larry Toh and the new Area Governor Jane Wu. Welcome.
The session started off at 7.15 on time as our ASAA TM Ho enthusiastically wield the club gavel to call the meeting into session. The TTE was none other than DTM Mohammad Abdullah who conducted his role flawlessly. Also a reminder to our members that we are no longer under area W but we have been placed in G2 for 'Graciously Great!'
The Table Topic Session was conducted by CC S.Manogaran who cheekily coaxed the speakers into revealing juicy opinions of which everyone enjoyed. The speakers who volunteered did really well...at handling the topic.
Thank you Patrick for his take on single mothers,
Charles on egoism and self-centeredness,
Lim who was also our humor master with his opinion and experience in infidelity.
Masdiana on Mother in Laws,
Willy on the women behind fate of mankind,
Justin's opinion on expressing love to our partners,
Fazlan on Mutual respect,
& Maslena's POV on courting life.
IIPP Leong rounded up the session by giving encouraging remarks which focused on the strong points of each speaker.
The Laugh however had not yet begun, and TM Lim Ah Hwai fulfilled that void with his trademark Ah Beng jokes. Lim, We look forward to having Ah Lian join in the second season.
As a special treat, AASA Ho then called the meeting to a pause for a 30 minute dinner break. MII Toastmasters is well known for their food, and this session was no less. It is tradition that we celebrate the birthday Toasters of the month, and this month was none other than our beloved TM, Rozina Harun.
The Installation Ceremony was next in the agenda, and Immediate Past President CC,CL "Lovingly" Levine Lee successfully conducted her last action as the President by discharging her executive committee and appointing TM Goh Wei Lyn as our new President of the club for 2010/2011.
Our Current president then, picked up her gavel and ushered in a new line of executive committees.
