A Sample of Adele's Music

For those who are not familiar with Adele, here’s a sample of her music:




Last evening, I was at the Taman Indrahana Toastmasters meeting, and as is typical of our meetings, we recorded a good attendance – there were 24 of us, including two guests. Anyway, I was the Evaluator for Han Lee Hwee who delivered his Advanced speech from the Humorously Speaking manual and very surprisingly I was voted the Best Evaluator. I say “very surprisingly” because the other Evaluators were just as good, if not better – the likes of Ho Fong Ming, LeAnn Tang and Lim Thian Seng. Even the speeches were awesome. And Lee Tong Fong as the General Evaluator kept us in stitches even as he heaped praises on the club. Indeed, a great meeting that deserves an 8 out of a 10.



Relief showed on my face when I knew the Reds never looked in any danger of a fourth successive EPL defeat. In fact, we convincingly beat Everton – thanks to a Steven Gerrard’s hat-trick. It was also the first hat-trick in a Merseyside derby since Ian Rush scored four in the Reds' 5-0 win at Goodison Park in 1982, and the first at Anfield since Fred Howe achieved the feat for Liverpool in 1935.


The first of three goals came when Tim Howard saved Martin Kelly's low shot but Gerrard collected the loose ball and had the vision and touch to lift his shot over Everton's keeper and a collection of retreating defenders into the net (34). The second came when Luis Suarez weaved his way into the area and delivered an invitation Gerrard was never going to refuse as he thumped a finish high past Howard (51). The last goal came when Suarez was, once again the provider as he opened up the Blues defense before setting up Gerrard for a simple finish (90+3).
