|29/11/2006||Last Meeting 2006 - Letter to PolyU TM Club
As long as you and me believe that Toastmasters is something good for us, our friends and people around us, go ahead and keep the club rolling.
" The bridge between people is Toastmaster, which is something we didn't master! "
If you have the same idea with me about Toastmaster, let's continue in
the coming Semester(s)!
|23/11/2006||1st Joint Meeting with UST Toastmasters Club
Such a wonderful night.
As usual, joint meeting let us know more friends...
Quite happy to see the sweet faces... in particular KiKi and her buddies from UST,
|26/04/2006||Last meeting of the Semester
I joined this Club about one year ago. I have been chosen to give an unprepared speech. Also I have been a MC of the Table Topic session for 4 times. From the activities, I felt I was more confident and learnt to catch people's attention. But I am still not brave enough to be an ice-breaker or the Toastmaster. I hope I will have a chance later. In the end, good luck to everyone in this club.
-by Cherry, Table Topic Master #1
This is my second time to join the club meeting.
The first time is Cherry who asked me to come.
And after that, I felt that I fell in love with this club.
So I said,"Hey! I want to be the MC next time." That's why I am here to share with you.
Being an MC is more than a challenge for me.
It is an EXCITING thing since I am a ruler of the whole stage.
Such experience enable me to practice public speak standing in front of audients.
But, what I like most is the friendly atmosphere in the room.
That comforts me quite a lot since I am a little bit nervous.
I'm happy to have Cherry as my partner. Also, I want to say,
"I love you, toastmasters club."
|07/04/2006||Joint meeting with HKU Campus Toastmasters Club
The joint meeting was a great opportunity for the young people from the two universities to meet new friends and improve public speaking skills in English language. Hope the new comers to this club found the night fun and worthwhile of the time spent, and it was my special hope that the table topic session has given the speakers some challenge in terms of quickness in thoughts and braveness to express their ideas in English. Personally quite impressed with the general evaluation given by Doreen, full of sincerity in the delivery and helpful suggestion. Finally, thanks to all committee members to arrange the activity.

|28/02/2006||2nd Meeting 2006
I really enjoyed the TME! Frankly speaking, I am very proud to say that being the MC not only enables me to practise public speaking in front of my audience, but also enhances my degree of involvement. Participation is of great importance for every Toastmaster member. I regard this as a feeling of existence. I admit that I really made a lot of mistakes. But I believe that everyone has his/her first time. Failure is always the mother of success! I would like to say a few words to all of my dear Toastmaster friends : "All of you should know why you join Toastmaster. Always be active to participate! "
-by Winnie, Toastmaster of the Evening (TME)
I thought toastmaster club was like a kind of gathering with casual talks
and sharing; I thought two hours was just enough for several funny games
and I thought... But finally, I found it was not the truth! To be a
surprise, there were well organized schedule and various programs. Each
section was counted by minutes and most participants got their minutes
giving speech. I myself got an exciting chance of giving 2 minutes speech
on one table topic. Moreover, after all the speeches, we were given
evaluation which turned out very helpful to discover our strengths and weaknesses and
to obtain suggestions on improvement. I especially like the positive
atmosphere. Glad to meet Toastmasters!
|13/02/2006||Orientation Night 2006
For the new semester, we had an orientation to welcome new friends. We had a game to practise 'facial expression', a Table Topic Session held by Elaine, and laughter throughout the night. Here are the names of our pretty Snow White(s) and Prince of Charming(s):
Benson, David, Cherry, Clara, Edith, Eva, Faline, Jane, Keith, Kingman, Li, Ruth, Sandy, Sisi, Tina, Winnie, Yan
Welcome You All ^_^
It was really exciting and unforgettable that night.
We first was introduced a very interesting game by Tony,
in which we needed to move a piece of biscuit from our foreheads into our mouths
simply by our facial expressions. Haa... Fun but not easy.
Then there came the wonderful speech on Laughers.
And it did make all of us burst into laughter.
Well, the moment the toastmaster Elaine spoke out the table topics,
i knew the chances for practicing speaking in the public came.
Heart beating violently as Elaine threw out the topics one after another.
'Be brave and just try.' I said to myself.
I raised my hand, steped on the stage and delivered a speech in my heart beat.
To my greatest surprise, I won the Best Table Topic Speaker of that night.
Wow...Why not give it a try, guys!
|10/11/2005||6th Meeting - Theme: "The Power Of ..."
I have had a unforgettable night on 10 Nov 2005(6th regular Toastmasters meeting as well as my birthday). Though the number of attendees was not very large, I really wanted to thank all of you there for bringing me such a memorable birthday, especially Tony (VPPR). I still remembered it was the first time that the table topic speaker led everyone to sing the birthday song to me. I was so impressed. Throughout the night, I felt just like a "VIP". Thank you for all of your greetings.
It is my pleasure for me to be the Club President this year. I really enjoy every moment spending with all of you (our ExCo, members and honorable guests) in the meetings. Thank you very much for your support and appreciation. Let's try our best to work on the growth of our club.

|28/10/2005||4th Meeting - Theme: "Choice"
Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.

|17/10/2005||3rd Meeting - Theme: "Imagination"
This is the first time I delivered my speech in PolyU Toastmaster Club. The reason why I delivered my speech is because the guest, Karen, encouraged me to pick up the role of Table Topic Master in the previous meeting. As a Table Topic Master, my role are preparing six to seven questions and calling audiences to answer my questions. The most difficult part of being a Table Topic Master is how to link up the content of previous speaker with your next question. During my speech, I discovered that making a joke is very useful. This made the audiences not being bored. Also, Tony advised me not to read from the notes. I wish I can perform better in the next time.
P.S. Advantage of being a Table Topic Master
|06/10/2005||2nd Meeting - Theme: "Again"
It is the first time for me to be the Table Topic Master. During the preparation of table topics, I was very worried that whether my questions would suit the theme and the taste of the audience. However, I am very glad to see that Beenz, Christina, Ella, Karen, Kwan, Kelvin and Tony, all gave excellent speeches. They shared their thoughts with us. For example, one would like to travel Montreal again, one wants to see his primary schoolmate again, one has made Accounting mistakes again and again and one wants to be herself if she can be reborn. They all gave interesting speeches which inspired us very much. It was a great time to be the Table Topic Master. I would like to thank them for their vivid speeches.

|28/9/2005|| First Meeting of the New Academic Year
The first meeting went well and most of them were new members. I was glad that my secondary schoolmate, Kwan, would join the meeting on her own. Changes on her are encouraging as I felt she is getting more open-minded, more confident and having the courage to try and learn. I could not attend the meeting, but I could still tell some of the names in the following picture:
1st row: Kia, Benson, Curtis, (5th) Li, (6th) Jane
2nd row: (2nd) Aileen, Kwan, Edith, Elaine, Christina (behind Elaine), Rvth, Wendy, Jim

I went PolyU to join this orientation night. So many smiling faces I saw, in particular, Peary, a little girl of 7 yr-old. She is so cute and has talent for all things. She taught me on the cosmetic approaches by drawing picture on a white board and ... add eye-shadow, put on lipstick... all funny and interesting. Then she sang the Tele-tubbies song "Tinky Winky, Dipsy, LaLa and Po" to me. (^.^ haha...) Other new faces are: Li, Benson, Lawrance, Josephine(Perry's mother), Linda, Tavia, Liu Di (Christina), Jane...
