Humorous Speech & Speech Evaluation Contest 07/08

We had our in-house Humorous Speech & Speech Evaluation Contest last Monday. The event was a joint programme with the MIA Toastmasters Club. Held on 27th August 2007, the event was indeed an eye-opener...let me tell you WHY :

1. Our humourous speech contest chair, is the quiet and sweet Ying Ying. Wow, she'd done an extremely impressive job, coordination and programme was carefully planned with the MIA Toastmasters Club's Li Hoong, the contest chair of Evaluation Contest.

2. The programme was smooth and was so clearly planned, resulting in a successful event, with everyone enjoying the contest!!

3. The trophies were so pretty...hehe..

4. We didn't know our Past President, Tan was that funny when after he won the Humorous speech contest. And yea, as claimed, he's stil single....thanks to himself, unable to decide to be or not to be an 'animal'... :)

5. How to make everyone enjoy if we do not have guest and friends to join us? well, the event was attended by guests from Farlim, IPG, YMCA and even our very own Area Governor, Yoon Peng Yew.

Last but not least, we want to thank all the members of Gurney Toastmasters Club and MIA Toastmasters Club as well as all the helpers from other clubs who help out during the contest.

Division N & Division S ~ Joint Installation Dinner 2007

Date : 28th July 2007
Time : 7.00pm
Venue : Bayview Georgetown Penang
Theme : Blue & Silver

It was great!!

The Joint Installation Dinner was successfully held, finally!!

Organizing Committee of the dinner, which was consisted of members from Division N & Division S, has been gathering, meeting, discussing, arguing, head-scratching and heart pumping for the whole 3 months to fully prepare the dinner as the best ever arranged dinner.

Lead by our Nenek Joan Chan as the Organizing Chairlady, the committee worked hard for meetings over meetings for this event and it was so touching to see the event successfully ended on that very night.

It indeed a touching moment when Eddy and Lay Hoon (the emcees) said, Thank You for coming and have a safe journey home’ that night. I personally don’t know how others felt, but it was a special feeling, after all that we’ve done, the bonding between the committee (which was once, unknown to each other) was so close and now, all of us has got ourselves a whole group of new friends, each.

BRAVO to the team!!
