Social Activity #3: Foodpacking @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

On 14th April 2018, Sunway Toastmasters Exco & some of the members teamed up with the Kechara Soup Kitchen to pack food for homeless people who live by the streets of KL. Scroll down and see how the team managed to spread some love during our free time when we are not toasting our speeches!

“If you’re not making someone else’s life better, then you’re wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other lives better.” 
-Will Smith

We hope that our small, tiny efforts in Kechara would make other lives if not all, but a little bit better than yesterday.

Meeting #17: Roses & Angpows (22nd February 2018)

Give Table Topics a creative twist!

Dinesh Jayabalan conducted a fun & creative table topics session during our #17 club meeting. Future Table Topic Master can keep it as a reference to make your table topics session an extraordinary entertaining session!

First of all, let’s look at the rules set by the Table Topic Master: 20180222_200216 1. Brave souls who volunteered themselves will be given a story to tell.

2. 30 seconds after his or her speech, the participant will be shown an image.

3.The participants need to incorporate the image into his or her story.

The rules increase the difficulty and unpredictability of a table topic to yet another level. It tested the spontaneity and creativity of participants to be able to quickly modify their speech in order to incorporate the image into their story.

The winner of the day, Niez did something that truly tickled the audiences. He was given a situation as below: “Pick someone from the crowd and demonstrate to us how would you propose to your loved one.”

He then got down on one knee to confess his love to one of the guests in the meeting.20180222_201033The confession got juicier and funnier when “50 shades Darker” was shown on the screen!

Everyone basically rolled-on-the-floor-laughing after watching his & the guest’s splendid performance on stage! Well Done Niez!

Social Activity #2 Chinese New Year Dinner!

Sunway Toastmasters Club organizes Chinese New Year reunion dinner with our fellow members every year. This year, we had it in Esquire Kitchen, Sunway Pyramid.

The dinner began with tossing the  “Yee Sang”- a chinese-styled salad mixed with raw salmon, nuts, jelly fish, & different colors of crunch. It is believed that the act of tossing the “Yee Sang” while simultaneously chanting wishes and blessings  can bring good luck and fortune to the tossers.

Thanks to all members and EXCOs who attended this reunione dinner. It was indeed an enjoyable gathering full of laughters and personal stories, and we feel much closer to each others after the get-together!

In Sunway Toastmasters Club, other than learning about public speaking and leadership skills from each other, we also wish to foster close relationship between our members. By organizing different social activities, we hope  to encourage our members to feel at ease in this big Sunway Toastmasters Family and be comfortable to expose own strengths and weaknesses so that everyone in the family is able to learn faster and better from each other.
