K Loghan Workshop

I pronounce the K Loghan Workshop at Sunway University this afternoon a big success. It was a well-planned and well-delivered session – for sure, I enjoyed it very much. I am sure the crowd of 100-plus did too. It was also refreshing to see students from Sunway, Monash, Multimedia and HELP there. And I daresay it was well-organized. If I may add, the venue was excellent. Thanks to the Sunway School of Business and the Department of Facilities & Maintenance for supporting Taman Indrahana Toastmasters Club in arranging the meeting. On a personal note, I must apply what I have learnt today.

In Jakarta, reported that the maid, said to be the rape victim of Rais Yatim had denied that Rais raped her in the eight years she served with him. The online news portal informed that the woman denied the allegations in a statement to officials from the Indonesian Workers Protection and Placement Centre (BP3TKI) in Semarang (Star, January 08, 2011, p N2).

Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has left the club by mutual consent. In his short reign at Liverpool, Hodgson won only seven of 20 Premier League games after taking over from Rafael Benitez in July 2010 and led the club to 12th in the table. As Phil McNulty, BBC Sport's chief football writer penned today, Hodgson was “an invisible presence to The Kop for most of his Liverpool reign”. As expected, former player and manager Kenny Dalglish has been placed in charge until the end of the season. Hodgson has done the sensible thing. And maybe, the next task is to sack some under-performing players too.

In the FA Cup match between Arsenal and Leeds, the final result was a 1-1 draw. A disappointing conclusion for the Gunners because they dominated for long periods.
