FIFA Loses

I was at the Metro Toastmasters club meeting this evening and I began the fourth round of CC assignments – today’s Ice-breaker speech was titled “QSR”. My evaluator was Yee Kim Foong and although he was specifically told by the GE to give me a hard-hitting evaluation, he was generally full of praise although he did highlight that my ending was a wee bit abrupt. I was also the evaluator for Kenny Lee, a visiting Toastmaster from Penang, who was presenting the last of his ACB-qualifying speeches. By the way, I also participated in Table Topics and I won the Best Table Topics Speaker award. For sure, it was a great meeting!

Barbara Castelein and Mirthe Nieuwpoort, two of the 36 women who starred in Bavaria beer’s guerilla marketing stunt at the Holland game last week, are free after a court decided they should not face jail after all (The Sun, June 24, 2010, p 5). And no, they didn’t wear the body-clinging orange mini-dresses to court, nor were they attired in standard issue orange-colored prison uniforms.

Meanwhile, there are already five thousand orange mini-dresses that were sold over the Internet – at least according to blogsite
