Taman Indrahana IS & TT Contest

We collected a whopping RM305 today and much of this amount can be credited to the pair of Owais and Edrickson who went on a concerted walkabout to solicit donations from students and staff of HICT. Also RM30 came from the Edith Cowan University students at the college – thanks to the initiative of Grace Gan. So the total cash collected so far now amounted to RM1274. Yippee, we have crossed the RM1000 mark. Let’s see this amount continue to grow.

This evening, Taman Indrahana Toastmasters Club had their International Speech & Table Topics Contest, and I participated in the former – having made the decision to withdraw from the Table Topics contest since I have already qualified earlier. In the International Speech contest, I reproduced the speech I did at the KL Advanced contest but again, I wasn’t placed. Never mind – as far as I am concerned, the speech was a lot more polished this time around, and I incorporated all the tips given by KL Advanced Toastmaster members – I used a prop (i.e. a chair), I injected more vocal variety, I even had humor, and I used the full 7-minute time slot. I believe I did well. I know I did well.
