A Golden Globe for Joaquin Phoenix

The 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards kicked off the awards season on Sunday, January 05, 2020. 

Held at the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel in Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, USA, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association recognized achievements in both television and film over the past year. 

One winner  and I am not surprised – was Joaquin Phoenix (left) for the Joker – Best Performance by an Actor in a motion picture drama. 

Truly befitting because it was indeed a praiseworthy performance that was simply mesmerizing! 

I was in Sunway Mentari, Selangor to attend the KPP Toastmasters meeting – where we were blessed with a good attendance. By our standards, that is. 

A total of eleven eager enthusiasts were there yesterday to kick off our first meeting of the new year!

We had an Ice-breaker Marathon. Six speakers stepped up to give 4-to-6-minute snippets of their personal ‘life’-stories. In Malay!

In case you're wondering, I was the sixth speaker!

And we had Table Topics too – for our three guests who came to the meeting. 

Two of them were Toastmasters from Money Mastery and Subang Mandarin respectively. The third attendee was from KPP TTDI.

Two other members did not deliver speeches but they took up meeting roles – as the Toastmaster-cum-Table-Topics-Master and Grammarian:

And of course, we took the opportunity to celebrate KPP's Sandy Tan's birthday:
