2012 Humorous Speech & Evaluation Contest - The Audience
We all had a good laugh!

We learned from Gurmeet how Toastmasters helped him to be constructive in his words so that a black sounds like white.

We learned from Patrick that to be a good Leader, you must first wash the car...Wax in, wax out, Wax in, wax out.

We learned from Jagdeep how to be like James Bond and get the girl

We learned from Selvaraj that we should start to work from home because it is fun to laugh at those who work overtime in office.

Finally, we learned that behind the humour, there are Learning Lessons that you cannot find in local bookstores. 

Thank you everyone for the wonderful sharing.

The conference room was fully occupied! — at St. Nicholas' Home.
The new term of Penang Toastmasters Club was kick-started with a blast!! The first meeting of the new term was on 10 July, 2012. The theme of the meeting was "New beginning". Thanks to all the members and guests who turned up, we had a room full of people learning and having fun at the same time. The meeting went on very smoothly, with a few non-toastmasters guests joining the meeting for their first time. Some guests were as young as 14 years old! They are looking for ways to help themselves to become better communicators and have more confidence in public speaking! We sincerely hope that their search for an efficient learning program will end in Toastmasters, specifically, at Penang Toastmasters Club :)

Our first meeting also marked the official start of our new member, Lim Ewe Huat! After attending our meetings as guest for a few times, he decided not to let go of a great opportunity to become a learning member of Penang Toastmasters Club! Welcome, Ewe Huat! We are looking forward to your ice-breaker speech! :)
All attendees including guests and visitors had their fair share of speaking and they enjoyed doing that :) Happy birthday to the July, August and September babies! :D

Apart from the speech assignments by Patrick Cheah and Selvaraj, all other attendees were given opportunities to speak up! With the theme of "New Beginning", attendees were talking about what they intended to do as a new beginning for themselves. If you have not visited any Toastmasters club before, why not set a goal to visit us the coming next meeting?! That is a new beginning for you to find out how Toastmasters can change your life.

Fun and fellowship among attendees were not to be forgotten. We also celebrated birthdays of July, August and September babies. Happy birthday to Gurmeet Singh, Yeap Chee Wei, and Patrick Cheah!

All in all, this is another successful meeting. See you in the next coming meeting on 24 July, 2012!

Superheroes

Toastmasters Meeting on 10 April, 2012.

Justice League ASSEMBLE!!!! These were the words that were said by our ToE of the evening, Hercules Ooi Ho Seng.

The theme of our meeting tonight was....yep you guessed it, Superheroes. 1st up was Ghost Rider Patric Cheah and he shared with us the word and thought of the day....and how to ride that awesome ghost rider bike.

Captain Malaysia aka Joseph Raj welcomed us all to the meeting and after that we all had a chance to introduce ourselves where we got to know the favorite superheroes of everybody present.

Next up was the project speech session and today we had 1 speaker and he was none other than the Ghost Rider, Patrick Cheah. He shared with us a very insightful message and demonstration on how to move objects with just the power of our minds (yep Patrick has professor X's powers as well).

The evaluators aka the firing squad for Patrick's speech came next and they did give some helpful suggestions on the areas that our Ghost Rider could improve on. ( we were definitely not too critical though, after all we do not want to be at the receiving end of the penance stare from Patrick @ Ghost Rider). Seriously though all the best Patrick, you continue to make the Penang TMC feel proud.

Break, food and fellowship came up next and we mingled and we jinggled. Our meeting resumed after about 20 mins and we had the humor session next.

The humor session marked the return of SELVARAJ, and he told us a joke on how to pick your career choice based on the thickness of the study materials. Our second humorist was yours truly, and I gave a truly 110% original joke which was definitely not taken from the internet ( I swear). Our third humorist, our second time guest Miss Ling, shared with us the amazing uses of mushrooms. Mushrooms, ah glorious mushrooms, you can eat em and you can smoke em em.

Table topics was up next and we had 6 participants today which were Selvaraj, Clement @ Superman,Yeap, Melvin a first time guest, and CatWoman @ Debica Sigamoney and Grandma Joan.

Selvaraj wanted to make money out of his new found superpower, Flying and Clement @ Superman shared with us why he thinks Doraemon is way better than the other superheroes.

Melvin wanted to have the power to give people HOPE which is a powerful power to have, and Yeap reiterated his adoration of his favorite superhero Jet Li who is way better than Jackie Chan. Grandma Joan Ang prefers Superwoman, Ultrawoman and Cicakwoman rather than their male counterparts, in other words more woman power!!!

Our returning Catwoman @ Debica shared with us her favorite which was none other than Captain Romania Jagdeep Singh Dhaliwal ( well ask her for further details Capt. Romania).

Our evaluators The Incredible Latin Hulk, Pablo Fmhyudin, for the table topics and Captain Malaysia Joseph, the general evaluator, were thorough and encouraging in their evaluations

A special thanks to Clement, Yeap, Grandma Joan, Melvin, Ms. Ling, Wei Wei, and our co evaluators, spiderman Alan, Catwoman Debica, and Batman Francis.

Over all, this meeting definitely soared higher than any bird, any plane or any Superman could ever dream of.

Have a good day folks,

Bangra Man Signing off.
