CNY Meeting-cum-celebration

It was roaring hot on 22/2/2010 where we had 26 members and guests attending the Chinese New Year cum Roaring Toastmasters meeting. We were honored to have 2 special guests from District 51 – LGM Francis Ng, DTM and Are W6 Governor, Ng Lay Choo, ACB, CL. In addition to our normal refreshment, we had the special “Yee Sang” sponsored by Ong Siew Chien, DTM.

When I first stepped into the meeting room, I could not believe my eyes. All the 4 walls were decorated with the word – FOOK pasted upside down and red packets. There were pomelos and nien kao beautifully arranged on a red table in the centre front of the meeting room. All of us felt energized, prosperous and VERRY ONNGG indeed!

The Toastmaster of the Evening, Mok Soo Pon, ATMB, CL was not only dress to the occasion but also kept the energy high throughout the meeting.

One of the highlights of the evening is the Chinese Tea session conducted by Alfred Koh, ACS, CL. He demonstrated the process step by step. He brought his personal tea set, the room’s d├ęcor and even the red table all the way from Gua Musang. Special thanks to Alfred. We also celebrated Alfred’s birthday with the HAPPY BIRTHDAY song and cake.

Table Topic Master Chrissy Steinhardt packaged the topics perfectly by incorporating the theme of the meeting - Roaring Toastmasters Meeting and the word of the day - Prosperous. 2 of our guests took up the challenge and one of the guests – Cik Faz became the Best Table Topic Speaker.

We were mesmerized by very interesting project speeches. Darcy was fantabuluous with his body movements sharing his helicopter experience. Lawrence was superb in his adaptation of the movie – Lord of the Rings. Mun Yuen was dead serious with her topic – Going with the Flow. Hats off to the project speakers!

Simon Soh, ACG tickled us with a humorous evaluation of Darcy’s speech using the acronym – V I A G R A. Simon is no more simple Simon but funnyman Simon. The General Evaluator, Grace Tan, CTM, CL was so meticulous in her overall evaluation that even the Table Topic Evaluator, yours truly, was given a written evaluation of my evaluation.

As the Organizing Chairman for this Roaring Toastmasters meeting, I take this opportunity to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the role players, sponsors and participants. Your support, your presence and your contribution made it a WONDERFUL meeting.
