Who To Vote For?

This video clip was produced by the Catholic Research Centre and Council of Churches of Malaysia:

Yesterday, I was at the MIMKL Toastmasters meeting and even though the meeting was more than decent, attendance was still mediocre. And although Ahamd Fakhri as the Toastmaster-of-the-Day tried to be the spark to light up the meeting, members were not too responsive. Speeches and evaluations were as per expectations in both quality and quantity this time around. Incidentally, I presented my second CC speech “The Giant Slayer” and this was another off-the-cuff speech loosely based on the movie that I went to see last week, i.e. Jack the Giant Slayer. My speech talked about the three beans that grew into towering beanstalks representing Courage, Confidence and Conviction and the giant represents Fear. Overall, I would score this meeting a 6 over 10. We still started the meeting late – by 3 minutes.

The photo below shows Geoff Andrew and I being jointly crowned Best Assignment Speakers at the said meeting. Between my pursed lips is the "gold medal" chocolate that I received:

Immediately after, I sped off to Taylor’s University to participate in the Division B International Speech Contest. Although I did better with my speech “Kiss the Frog” than at the Area contest, I was obviously not good enough as I was only the second runner-up. It is really hard not to feel defeated. This is my third time and there are still no breakthroughs.

Kris Commons scored twice as Celtic all but sealed a second straight Scottish Premier League championship. The Scotland international beat Hibernian goalkeeper Ben Williams with a strike in each half (16, 52) to put Celtic in command. Then Mikael Lustig converted Joe Ledley's cross (61) to complete a comfortable 3-0 win for Neil Lennon's side.

Hello, Mr Victor. As you might know yesterday was the announcement of BN's manifesto for GE13.

I really hope to hear your point of view regarding their manifesto in your future entry.
