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

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.

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..
