A Merdeka Song

A Merdeka song:

There's good news from Kuantan. Five local residents made headway in their bid to stop Lynas Corp from firing up its controversial rare earth plant here after they got the High Court’s nod to challenge the science, technology and innovation minister’s decision to award a temporary operating licence (TOL) to the Australian miner. Thumbs up to Kuantan High Court judge Mariana Yahya for delivering the decision when their case was up for a judicial review last Tuesday.

Fellow Toastmaster Vince Tay texted me yesterday morning to request that I take up the Evaluator’s role at the MAICSA Toastmasters meeting. I agreed. The last time I was there was on March 15, 2012. Overall, it was a good meeting and I particularly enjoyed Leong Oi Wah’s superb attempt to deliver an Advanced speech in Malay. I would give this Thursday meeting at MidValley a score of a 6.5 over a 10.
