Pei Ling's Birthday

Pei Ling announced in my MKT113 class that it’s her 18th birthday today (oops, yesterday, because it is now early Wednesday morning!), and so, we all sportingly sang her ‘Happy Birthday’ in English, Mandarin, and even Tamil. And thereafter, a group of us – staff members and students – converged at Bar-B-Q Plaza in Aeon Bukit Tinggi for a celebratory meal. It wasn’t pre-planned but at the end of the day, it turned out really swell for Pei Ling – she was ecstatic and euphoric – and for us, at least, this get-together was especially meaningful and worthwhile.
Martin and me engrossed in deep thought

Pei Ling was trying to snap us but Diana got to her first!

I was supposed to do another speech at Extol Toastmasters Club meeting this evening, but discovered that I actually got the date mixed up – the meeting is supposedly to be next Wednesday, September 16 and not September 09. Oh well, this gives me a little bit more time to prepare – after all, it is a challenging speech. Still, I have my regular Toastmasters meeting tomorrow anyway.
