Planning 6 Speeches in December

I am 6 speeches away from receiving my ACS recognition. All the planning is bearing fruit. Thus far, I have received okays for 3 speaking slots and I am waiting for 3 more confirmations, which I expect to be forthcoming. It's a great feeling!
It's about time I also give due emphasis on recruiting more members for HICT Toastmasters – in fact, this afternoon, I had talked about Toastmasters to two students but I recognize we have to do more. Lorna meanwhile is spearheading a membership drive for KL Advanced Toastmasters, and likewise, I am giving her a hand.

“They (i.e. the Reds) lacked any fluency – ’sometimes good possession, sometimes not so good’ was Rafael Benitez's description, they continue to field a Steven Gerrard who looks a mere footballing mortal and their defense looked a few seconds away from calamity in a hairy first 45 minutes”. This is how Ian Herbert of UK’s The Independent described the game yesterday. Yes, as I have already admitted yesterday, we were very extremely lucky!

And early this morning, Malaysian time, Premier League leaders Chelsea left Arsenal's title challenge reeling by beating the Gunners 3-0 to increase the gap to 11 points on their London rivals. The Blues again showed their power was superior to Arsenal's panache. Sigh!

At least, Celtic didn’t disappoint. Celtic returned to the top of the Scottish Premier League following a comfortable 3-1 win over St Mirren. The first goal came from Scott McDonald's shot that went in off of St. Mirren's Chris Innes (39). The second came when Aiden McGeady laid on a pass for Georgios Samaras to side-foot into the net with a simple finish (42). Michael Higdon pulled one back for Saints (45) but McDonald restored Celtic's two-goal advantage when he volleyed home, courtesy of a McGeady cross (61).
