Scholarship Deception

Metro Toastmasters Club had a Christmas-themed meeting on Thursday. Jade Lim and I were the two Indrahanians who attended this meeting. It’s been quite awhile since I last made a speech and so this time around, I took part in the Table Topics session. It was good to know that I had not lost my touch because I was voted the Best Table Topics speaker. It was also pleasing to note that newbies contributed toward ensuring this club put on a good show and certainly, I did enjoy this meeting immensely. Very much in keeping with the spirit of Christmas, there was caroling, with Janis Santiago and her guitar providing the musical accompaniment. Even the Toastmaster of the Evening, Shukur came dressed as a Santa. A fun evening altogether.

In my preceding posting, I blogged about UCSI University’s big lie. I just realized that the university had put out an earlier ad in the said newspaper on December 14 itself. Although a public apology was later tended because of this “technical oversight” (as the university described the fib) – when it’s a one-time occurrence, I suppose we can excuse them, but when it’s two ads on two different dates promoting deception, then it becomes inexcusable.
