Uruguay's Turn to Exit

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Uruguay fans showed their support for banned striker Luis Suarez
 
Luis Suarez may not have been inside Rio De Janeiro’s Estadio do Maracana but he was there in spirit as Uruguay fans showed solidarity with the former, sporting masks, brandishing flags of support and ensuring the Uruguay-Colombia game kicked off to the sound of his name.
 
Definitely, Suarez’s brilliance was sorely missed by his team. And Colombia took advantage of his absence to beat Uruguay 2-0.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  


 
Colombia fans celebrate knocking Uruguay out of the WC
 
In the other game, luck embraced Brazil when the WC hosts scraped through to the last eight. They had won 3-2 in a penalty shootout against Chile in Belo Horizonte after a 1-1 draw.
 
Brazil will now meet Colombia in an all-South American quarter-final in Fortaleza on Friday. Mark that day down because it's going to be a cracker!

I am going to support Colombia for this game.
 
On Wednesday, I was in KL’s Jalan Kia Peng. At Menara Exxon-Mobil. I was there to attend the Tiger Toastmasters meeting as the General Evaluator as well as an evaluator for an Advanced speech. This was my maiden visit; I had wanted to visit the club since three years ago – and finally I made it.
 
A good meeting and I was even voted Best Evaluator. I would give it a score of a 7 over 10. I will return!
















 
 









And I ended the day with another meeting, i.e. the MIA Toastmasters meeting in Brickfields. I was a speech evaluator for a Toastmaster from Great Eastern who delivered his CC speech #10. To be honest, it didn't inspire me. Other than that, it was an okay meeting and I would give it a 5.5 over 10 score.
