“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”
― Charles Dickens
And so it happened. Monday, 18th September 2017 was our Humorous Speech & Evaluation Contests. That day, five contestants participated in both contests. The air and energy was intense and heavy for the contestants. At about 7.00 p.m., our contests began with the opening address and from University Malaya Toastmaster Club (UMTMC) Contest Chair and Club President, Kah Mun. Before the contest began, a minute of silence was observed for our beloved Dr. Thilla.
Contest Toastmasters, Darryn and Sam led the flow of the event smoothly. All the contestants and guests were having fun throughout the event.
Now that the main agenda’s done with, all the contestants and role-players were given tokens of appreciation for their efforts made that day.
And now, the moment that we waited!
