PAS and Selena Gomez

During the PAS Youth muktamar in Alor Setar, Kedah – one of the lame reasons  given by PAS to opt for divorce from PKR was the July 2016 concert by Selena Gomez (right). And specifically because her dressing was just too sexy.
 
If these PAS fellows had wanted to attend and they were afraid that they might get a tad too excited, then they shouldn't go lah!
 
Shah Alam PAS Youth delegate Aubidullah Fahim Ibrahim had said on Friday that PKR did nothing to oppose The Revival Tour concert, which was held on July 25 last year in Shah Alam, Selangor – a predominant Malay-Muslim area.
 
This wasn't the first time PAS had criticized planned concerts by international artistes.
 
I can understand if the two political parties part ways because of differences in  policies and/or principles. But a music concert?

The host of restrictions imposed on this type of performances had resulted in many concerts being aborted. They involved big names such as Kesha (2013), Erykah Badu (2012), Beyoncé (2009), Avril Lavigne (2008), to name a few.

This is Malaysia, where intolerance is becoming a way of life.
 
Whilst in Penang, Liquid Gold Toastmasters had put together two meetings – which we managed to fit in even as we attended the District 51 Toastmasters' Annual Conference.  Both meetings were held at the Tree Bar in G Hotel, Gurney Drive, Penang.
 
On April 28 – after the Welcome Dinner – we adjourned to the said venue for our Liquid Gold Advanced Toastmasters meeting.
 
We had a touch of glamor when the 2015 World Champion of Public Speaking, Mohammed Qahtani dropped in, together with a good friend and fellow Toastmaster from Penang, Muthukumaran Kodiappen.
 









 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And on April 29 – just before the Gala Dinner – we had another meeting.






 
 









As usual, we had our share of speeches, evaluations, Table Topics and yes, fun! Not to mention, the beers and the wine.

On that Friday, I delivered my CC#9 speech titled "Spirits" and on Saturday, I presented another speech, CC#3 titled "Humility". Both these speeches represent my CC Round 42.
