Amazing 3D Wall Paintings

Christal Wong (right) is someone I’ve known since 5 years and 8 months ago. 

I first met her when she participated in a Toastmasters' Youth Leadership Program (March 13-15, 2015) that l organized at SMK Subang Utama in  Subang Jaya, Selangor. She was a fifth former then. Gee whiz, how time flies!

http://helpvictor.blogspot.com/2015/03/world-class-dunces.html respectively and see if you can spot Christal Wong when you scroll down the said posts].

She’s not just an accomplished speaker but she's also artistic  she loves to draw and paint. In fact, I had featured her artworks in my post dated June 27, 2016 titled ‘Christal Wong: Art & Passion” @

This time, I got her interested in World Speech Day 2021 – and it's really nice of her to produce this WSD 2021 promo video as a prelude to the actual event in March of next year:


I'm really looking forward to her speech at World Speech Day 2021 Kuala Lumpur!
