  • 16 November 2008 : It was an evening filled with enthusiasm, entertainment, and enticement (the
    home-cooked dinner was a big draw). Once again, our invited guest has raised
    the bar for conducting the table topics session in a refreshing and
    challenging way. This has made our table topics session the most exciting

    gained much praise from her evaluator and all present.

    intellectual stimulation. The richness of language used by our speakers
    intrigued everyone present. Our language evaluator, DTM Rebecca Lee stumped
    most of the toastmasters by introducing a lesser known word, urbane.
    Nevertheless, a number of toastmasters urbanely sprinkled their speeches
    with the word of the day.

    There was also a surprise item planned. The surprise was so carefully
    guarded that no one knew what it was till the TME announced the item as it
    was not highlighted in the program - Our member, Farida Mustanir gave a
    surprise farewell speech as she's relocating to Dubai in the middle of

    start! Not only did we have a long and exciting list of speakers but we
    also had an equally long and distinguished list of visiting toastmasters.
    Besides the very formal introduction round required of every meeting, this
    time the Toastmaster of the Evening(TME) threw open a beginning of a story
    to the meeting. Each person had to contribute a line or two to continue the
    story. The story took many turns and twist and it was hilarious to see how
    it ended. Feedback on such wake-me up activities were good! So future TMEs,
    please remember to include similar acitivities. Our speakers presented a
    range of varied topics which most certainly made for an interesting evening.
    Not to be outdone, the evaluators too made eloquent speeches to praise
    their speakers and recommend areas of improvement. Our table topics segment
    also saw our solo guest of the evening taking her first steps to public
    speaking. The evening ended on a high note as the best speaker, best
    evaluator and best table topics speaker were announced. It was a fitting
    start to the new year!

Although a first time, our Toastmasters of the Evening carried herself well and smoothly co-ordinated the meeting.

Our guests for the nights, Tan Meow Hui from Tampines West, John Choi from Radin Mas, Wong Kok Wah from Brilliant Advanced added to the stimulating and cheery evening. They came to lend their experience and weight to either provide the word for the day, evaluate or dare us with mind challenging table topics or simply support the Ulu Pandan Toastmasters. All in all, it was a good evening with everyone accomplishing their roles to the nines. Looking forward to our Humorous Contest on 4 September. Hope to see you there!

  • 15 Nov 2006 : The Ulu Pandan November Toastmasters meeting was not an ordinary monthly
    chapter meeting. It also signalled the start of our Speechcraft course over a period of 5 sessions. Besides our regular agenda, whereby our Ulu Pandan Toastmasters delivered their project speeches, the Speechcrafters were given a preview of the setting in which a toastmasters chapter meeting is held, the management and the organization of such a meeting whereby toastmasters are expected to take on various appointments. A total of 13 people enrolled for the Speechcraft course. During the fast and furious table topics round, Speechcrafters were invited to participate to get a first-hand feel of standing in front of a group of people and sharing their opinions on a chosen topic. The meeting ended on a high note as usual with feelings of accomplishment and camaraderie all round. We look forward to seeing our Speechcrafters in the subsequent sessions.

  • 5 Oct 2006 : Every chapter meeting is a mystery to all because we do not know what
    awaits us. We had a fun English lesson by Pauline Lim CTM, the bubbly VPE of Choa Chu
    Kang TMC.

    The guests were jovial and encouraging; our members had a wonderful
    time interacting and sharing public speaking tips over break. It is with
    much regret that many of our members were unable to turn up for the meeting.

    Learning is a life long process and public speaking is no different.
    The 3 hour session enables us to unwind after all the hard work in preparing for the meeting, to
    measure our progress in public speaking and to evaluate our personal growth and improvement for the month.

    We are pleased to announce that UPTMC is organizing a 5 session
    Speechcraft Workshop in the month of November 2006. The workshop will be conducted by
    our Club Mentor, DTM Richard Sng, who was the champion of both the Area S2 Humorous
    Speech Contest as well as the Area S2 Evaluation Contest.
