SAGA & Toastmasters - Inter-Schol Public Speaking Speech Contest 2010

SAGA, Swan City Toastmasters Club and Toastmasters Club Sibu jointly organised "Inter-School Public Speaking Speech Contest 2010" this afternoon at Wei Kuok Hall.

This was the first of its kind by SAGA and the two English-speaking Toastmasters clubs in Sibu. SAGA chairman Temenggong Vincent Lau in his opening address said," This joint effort augurs well and I hope to see more to come!'

The speech contest aimed at providing a platform for secondary school students to learn from each other through contest. With this, the organisers hoped to raise the local standard of students in public speaking.

I noted that most of the participants exhibited pretty high standard of public speaking in English. I was deeply impressed!

I hope SAGA would continue to take initiative to organise English-orientated activities.

Hurray, SAGA & Toastmasters clubs!

After opening, we posed for a group photo. Front row from R to L: Dr. Clement Chen, Miss Wong Toh Hee, Miss Alice Lau, Temenggong Vincent Lau, Dr. Hu Chang Hock, me.

I am appealing to your Sin Ang Tong Methodist church as a fellow Christian. I am gravely disappointed by the Malaysiakini article carrying your leader refuting Goh KS message pertaining to the BN grants given to the church.

Please - can't you see you are playing to the tune of BN? How could you go on to say that people would suffer if PR was elected govt? How do you justify on Christian moral grounds that accepting the $$$ and advertising to thank them in return? Doing so you were openly campaigning for them? You too speak politics.

Do you really believe the money is given in sincerity? The timing speaks volume. So $400K is all that your church cost? Mine cost the life and blood of Jesus!!! Shame on you. Your leaders are not fit to lead the church. Conscientious Christians should leave your church. Please read and meditate on PSALMS 1. Let God speaks to those who are spiritually discerned.
