We then proceed to the Toastmaster of the Morning, Simon Peter. With his charming charisma and seductive wig, He kicked things off by allowing the introduction of members and guests. The questions of the day were what Toastmasters mean to them and what aliens mean to them.
Adding to the flow of things, humour master Bryan Wong stepped up and discussed different generations of music and how the old and new generations vary in terms of beats and culture, Assuming it was intentional, the silent phones law was broken as his phone disrupted his speech and using his quick wit, uses his alarm tone to his advantage by smoothly relating it to his speech.
Keeping up the tempo of the meeting, Bryan Wong again rose to the occasion as table topics master and prepared several interesting topics regarding aliens and the supernatural.
Firstly, we have Samuel talking about how having an alien girlfriend can be pretty cool as he gets a lot of benefits (not that kind of benefits, you filthy minded person).
Next up, Jo Peng was given a dilemma between Batman and Superman, having to decide who would win in a battle. (Really, she could've just watched the movie to find out). However , ultimately she sided with the rich and resourceful Batman, it's safe to say that this topic is very debatable and some members weren't exactly on board with her views.
Enthusiastic guest Dhanvi went up to share how he had to listen to his father talking about many different conspiracies of the existence of aliens.
|Joshua, attracting interest in his stories|
|Everyone seems to be interested in the table topics|
Logan came up and shared the best superpower is being to materialise any ideas that we have and the ultimate weakness is that when we don't believe ourselves. (Which in truth seemed it can be both a superpower and a valuable lesson)
Veteran Paul Tan showed his prowess and spoke about becoming an alien. If he were to be an alien, he would be a positive and highly encouraging alien.
Finally, fellow toastmaster Chia-Chun spoke about his favourite superhero, Batman ( GO TEAM BATMAN!!!!), and how he would have crushed superman if he wanted to.
With table topics speaking concluded, Table Topics Evaluator, Belinda, gave her thorough report on the speakers, encouraging them to speak more and giving them constructive feedback.
Before the meeting pauses for a break, the induction of the New Exco initiated by the Area Director J1, Gerald Peter, The previous exco team was discharged, and the new exco team rise up. The tiny gavel definitely made it hard for the new exco team to keep a straight face.
|There I am again on the right!|
|Treasurer John Choo wielding the almighty tiny gavel|
The president then gave his speech and his appreciation for his new exco team.
After a brief break, the meeting continued with the prepared speeches.
|Guests and members socialising during the break|

Firstly, we have Abigail Gan with her first CC, "Me". She talked about how her early life she was sheltered from the world and how that affected her life as she was growing up.
Then, we have Mahathir from MII TMC with his speech "What are the Chances", talking about the steps to getting your crush or in his words, 'victim'.
Finally, we have John Choo with his CC #5, "In The Minds of Angelic Furballs". He elaborates on the psychology of dogs and how dogs have unique relationships with human beings.
The evaluators of the speakers were then called upon to give their reports, giving encouraging comments and constructive feedback to help speakers improve.
After the evaluations, the technical reports were given by the Ah counter, grammarian and timer.
The general evaluator then gave her report on her thoughts of the meeting.
After, the presentation of awards commenced.
|Best table topics speaker: Chia-Chun, (there is something alluring about that wig)|
|Best speech: Mahathir, (the wig continues to make its appearance)|
The meeting then concluded with a presidential closing address.
|Everyone is all smiles after the meeting.|
