Pradeep impressed the judges at the area contest on 15 April, with his composed speech on table topic “When you pursue your passion, you feel pain and fulfillment”. He would now represent the area (and Kampong Ubi Toastmasters) to clinch the division championship.
It was Jamie’s maiden contest. Feeling nervous was understandable but she gave her best. She looked so drained after the contest. While she didn’t bag any award, it was a fruitful experience for her, I think.
Being the photographer, I was busy clicking the shutter with nary a moment resting my bum. I would say I was one of the most hardworking appointment holders. I was almost late, after going to the wrong venue, Queensway Secondary School, and had a problem after that finding my way to Queenstown Secondary School.
Queenstown Secondary School v Queensway Secondary School, could you tell the difference, especially when the latter is just two bus stops away from Queenstown Primary School. It’s misleading.
Probably it’s my last appearance at Toastmasters contest. Being President of KUTMC, I must discharge my duty to support my members and look out for their interest at contest. But when I am just an ordinary member, I would support them… mentally, but unlikely to make my way to the west and burn several precious hours on a weekend.
