MII Toastmasters Humorous and Evaluation Contests 2010

Howdy-ho Guys!

Great to be read again =) On the 27th of July 2010, we the MII Toastmasters Club held our Humorous and Evaluation Contest. The Humorous contest is where the funniest of Toastmasters compete in a Humor Battle to be the best & win the crowd's reaction... to laugh. The Evaluation Contest instead focused more on listening and deduction skills on evaluating a test speaker invited as an example.

There were four contestants for the Humor Contest
1) Mr. Leong Kok Wah who spoke with humor on corruption.
2) Mr. Justin Ong who spoke on living on overseas and not coming back.
3) Mr. S. Mano who joked about an experience with a headstrong subordinate of his, and
4) Mr. Mohamad Abdullah who's play of words lingered between lead the sheep, leadership and lick the...

After dinner, the Evaluation Contest commenced.

The contestants were

1) Mr.Leong Kok Wah,
2) Mr. Mohamad Abdullah,
3) Mr. Philip Wong,
4) Mr. Justin Ong,
5) Ms. Anna Hue,
6) Dr Gan,
7) Mr. Wong Chen.

The Contest speaker of the night was Mr. Vincent Chow who gave a speech with the title, 'If I were a Girl'. Most likely an adaptation from the original Beyonce Song "If I were a Boy". Vincent gave a remarkable performance of which the 7 contestants each took their turn to evaluate him.

The winners were
