Tale of an Ass

This morning I was in Jalan Ampang to attend the MIMKL Toastmasters meeting, and in the early afternoon, I dashed across town to Bukit Kiara for the Speakers’ Dream Tall Tales Speech Contest. I was one of eleven participants from seven Toastmasters Clubs and I was the last speaker. My speech title was “I Am What I Am” and it was a story about an ass! Anyway, to make a long story short, I didn’t win. I was to deliver a three- to five-minute speech and again, I was “time”-disqualified! Still, it was good to know Emil Anthony won second place, although personally I believe his speech was better than the other two. Oh well, the judging is…?

When it matters, Arsenal fumbled. They were already leading 2-0 at half-time – their goals courtesy of Nasri and Chamakh (9, 27) – but the Gunners surrendered three goals in the second half to give the game to Tottenham. A most disappointing result from a very promising team.
