Meeting on 1/10/11

Hello everyone,

HELP TMC had our meeting today, on the 1st of October. Today's meeting was themed 'money,' and was very appropriate with the financial demands of this day and age.

The meeting started off with a question posed by ASAA, Kevin Ho. The question was," Would you rather have plenty of money, and be relatively happy, or be very happy, and have a relatively high amount of money?" After hearing a range of answers, we moved on to the table topics session for the day.

Table topics master, Hadi, came up with 5 interesting and thought-evoking titles for the table topics speakers. After hearing from five speakers, we moved on to the table topics evaluation session. Jason Moi, an experienced and seasoned toastmaster, provided the table topic evaluation, accurately pointing out all the speakers' flaws, giving advise, and praising the good parts.

After the evaluation session was complete, we moved on to the assignment speakers. First up, we had Vincent Liew, who was preparing for his District Level Competition, on the 15th of this month. After delivering his speech entitled Love and Imperfections, we then heard from Dennis Wee, who was also preparing for a competition, later this month.

After taking a short break, we had more assignment speeches, from Toastmasters Roshini(cc#1), Tze Yi(cc#6) and Kevin(cc#8). After the speeches were complete, we moved on to our evaluation session, with G.E. Seetho taking the stage, before inviting his team of evaluators to deliver their reports.

After all the evaluations wee over, president Zoe took over. She started by giving out the certificates to the best table topics speaker(Rajveer Singh), best assignment speaker(Roshini), and the best evaluator(Rajveer Singh). She then ended with the announcement of the District Levels Humour Speech competition, which will be held in HELP, on the 8th of October!

On behalf of HELP TMC, I would like to thank all participants for today's meeting, including our guests, speakers, evaluators, and of course, our GE, Seetho. Hope to see you soon!

Celebrate life,
Rajveer Singh :D

HELP Humour Speech and Evaluation Contest

Hello everyone!

On the 13th of August, Saturday, HELP TMC had our annual Humour Speech an Evaluation contest. It was held in our very own DSA room in Wisma HELP. A special thank you to Victor Ong, Area Governer, and chief judge, for taking the time and making the effort for being there for our competition, especially since it was held on a Saturday morning.

The competition started on time, at 10.00 a.m. It sta
rted with the humour speech contest. The speeches were brilliant, and ranged from the effects of facebook, to parents' expectation of their children, from being a transsexual to the evolution of technology, and from one's nightmare birthday experience to the art of photography. There were also many other topics that were spoken about on the day, and really tickled the audience. After hearing the speeches from all eight speakers, we took a 20 minute breather.

After the break, the evaluation contest began. Test speaker Micheal, took the stage with his speech regarding choosing the right career path. A special thank you to Micheal for taking the responsibility of being our test speaker for our in-house competition. After his speech, and hearing the feed back from all 8 evaluators, we had some announcements. The certificates were then presented to all the role players, including the time keepers, the ballot counters, the SAAs, and not to forget the judges.

After the certificates were given out, it was time to announce the results! The results were then announced by the respective contest chairs, Oh Jian Yi for the Humour Speech, and Ivan Yong for the Eavluation contests. The winners are as follows:

Humour Speech
Winner: Loo Han Rong
1st Runner Up: Vincent Liew
2nd Runner up: Rajveer Singh

Winner: Loo Han Rong
1st Runner Up: Vincent Liew
2nd Runner Up: Tan Gui Ming.

Good luck to them, who will fly our college flag high, when they represent us in the G3 and G4 contest next month. A special thank you to all the judges, contestants, role players, and everyone else who was there to support this event. A very special thank you, and congratulations, to organising chair, Eugene Lau, for doing a splendid job. Hats off to you! MORE Pics coming soon :D

Celebrate life,

Our Forth Meeting-6th of august 2011

Hey all!
We had our 1st meeting of August today, on the 6th of August. We were fortunate to have Siok Looi, an experienced Toastmaster as our General Evaluator for the meeting. We also had a full house today with guests from TTDI TMC, Telekom TMC and Monash TMC.

The theme of this meeting was Family. Everything from the introductions to the table topics session centered around this relatable topic. Everyone had plenty to talk about. Topics like "My father, my idol" and "If one day you woke up with a different family.." were among the things that were discussed. We had 5 table topic speakers, and then continued on with the evaluation session.

After the evaluation session, we moved on to the highlight of the meeting, that is the Humorous Speech Workshop by none other than TTDI TMC's president Lee Xi Wen. It was a very informative workshop as we learnt how to construct jokes through various methods like triads and so on. Drawing on his vast experience in giving humorous speeches, Lee Xi Wen imparted valuable knowledge on the subject, which will prove especially useful to the contestents of next week's Humorous Speech and Evaluation Contest.

After the workshop, which lasted about 30 minutes, we had the assignment speakers. This week we had 3 speakers who gave varied but solid performances in their respective speeches.

After the assignment speeches, we had the evaluation session for the assignment speakers. Detailed reports were given on each speaker's performance. Next, the language evaluator, time keeper and Ah-Counter role players gave their reports for the meeting, followed by our GE. Last but not least, we had all the guests give their feedback on their experience in today's meeting.

Finally, President Zoe Lo, took the stage with her closing address. She began by awarding certificates to the best table topic speaker (Zoe Lo), best assignment speaker( Kevin Ho) and best evaluator (Siok Looi). She then brought the eventful meeting to an end with a few last words.

Our third Meeting on 30th of July 2011

Hello everyone!!!
As usual, we had our weekly meeting yesterday, on the 30th of July. We were lucky to have DTM Lourdes Chandramohan, IPP of Bangsar Toastmasters Club as our General Evaluator for the meeting. We were also blessed that district governer, Victor Ong , could join us. We were also joined by guests from Monash TMC, Telekom TMC, and several others.
The meeting started with a round of tabletopic speeches. Seeing that the theme for the meeting was 'time' and it's importance, ttm Kevin appropriately chose topics like 'Wasting time' and 'saving time' We had six table topic speakers, and then moved on to the evaluation session. After all, evaluation is the breakfast of champions, as they say.
After the evaluation session, we moved on to the assignment speakers. We had five speakers who had been scheduled to deliver speeches, and all five did an outstanding job. GE Lourdes was so impressed that he said he would like to re-visit our club in the near future to see our progress and help us to develop and improve further our club.
After the assignment speeches, we had our second evaluation session. As always, this evaluation session was done by seperate evaluators for each speaker. After the evaluations, the language evaluator, time keeper and Ah-counter role-players gave their reports for the meeting., followed by our GE. Finally, district governer Victor Ong took over the stage and thankd us for inviting him. He was also very impressed by our progress since he last visited us, and promised to help us grow and improve along the way.

Finally, President Zoe Lo, took over for her closing address. She started by giving out the certificates for the best table topics speaker(Siew Peng), best assignment speaker(Rajveer), and also the best evaluator(Siew Peng again!!!). She then called the meeting to a close by once again stressing the importance of making the most of our time, and reminding us that,"You control time, time does not control you."
After the meeting, we had a special session where we cut a Secret Recipe cake to celebrate the birthdays of all of our members who had been born in the month of July. From now onwards, this will be a normal practice to cut a cake at the final meeting of every month!!

*Announcement: On our next meeting, 6/8/11, we will be having a special humour speech briefing by Lee Xi Wen, the runner up in the district humour session. Xi Wen will be briefing us on how to add humour in our speeches, and this will be very helpful for those who intend to take part in the humour speech competitions over the course of August.. DO COME!!!!

Remember, work hard, but play harder :D

Aloha Toasties,

This week we started our trip to TLI2 with a mini meeting at Mc Donald's/ Subway at PBD.

We headed to Wisma IJM about noon and arrived there on time, whew!!!( knowing our bad timing)

As the new board, we received diversified advice from members of other clubs and areas in the division.

SURPRISE: In the middle of the event, the TOM announced that someone's car had a tree branch on it and it was Vincent's car!!!! Luckily the branch did not crush his car but still cause an obvious dent on his car roof top. Haiz, so sorry Vincent!!!!

Later we headed to our installation dinner with the area secretary as our installer.

Everyone gave positive response to the dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Besides witnessing the installation of the new exco. We also witnessed members AMOS and ROSE(you know who you are) "discussing" about IPhone apps, they were so into it that a glass broke!!!

Hello toasties.

Today's toastmasters meeting was full of surprises, one of them was Mr. Daniel Teh visiting our club. He was coaching one of the members from the 6 months old Monash Toastmasters Club.

Have you heard the saying,

If we could sell our experiences for what they cost us, we'd all be millionaires.

Well in today's meeting, we witnessed it!!!!!

Congrats to Mun Yee for winning our best table topics of the day. Good luck at the contests!!!!!

The sound advice given by Daniel popped the beautiful bubble that has been surrounding the club members and made us realize that what we are doing is far from enough.

Invasion and departure (CNY period)

These new members are really serious about being a toastmaster!!!!! Many of them have already paid the fees, some of them are even prepared to contest!!!! Seasoned members, prepare for the invasion of the century.

So who's leaving us? I believe is the Q of the week.

Answer:.........Qin Mei

Yes, I have just confirmed with Qin Mei that she is gonna be leaving for Australia on 12th of Feb

We had a farewell dinner with her on the 10th of Feb at Mcdonald's Uptown. We talked, joked and reminisced about our time in toastmasters and how different were our paths leading us.

I remember Qin Mei as the senior member in HELP Toastmasters when I first joined last year. She is a good friend, great mentor and amazing presenter. I hope she does well in whatever she wants to in the future and keep in touch with us old friends.

Next week on HELP UC toastmasters...............

NEW spirit

The A-levels people who have been gone for the past month due to exams are back. Each of them carrying a new spirit in rejoining the club's activities making the energy level higher then it has ever been.

Everyone had fun mingling and rekindling old friendships. The SAA had to call the meeting to order thrice before everyone settled down.

AND we have a big improvement in our timing as we started the meeting on time!

The new EXCO are very determined to get all the 10 DCP's hence they held an exco meeting right after the club meeting to discuss strategies.

HELP UC Toasties were surprised when many potential new members visited the club and were impressed with their table topic presentations

This is Mirabel, potential new member and best table topic speaker of the day

The talent shown by these potential members gives us hope to have another Division champion from our club. Bravo people!!!!!
