Tampines Changkat Toastmasters Club just turned 23 on 14th January, 2016. The club members joined together to celebrate this amazing auspicious and awesome event in an awe-inspiring evening full of fun, frolic, celebrations (and lots and lots of alcohol) on 23rd January, 2016. The celebration took place in the Function Room of Changi Rise Condominium, a quiet place by the swimming pool which was ideal for the theme of the party: Hawaii heaven!
The event started with a speech by our very own and beloved "Majesty" Toastmaster Chong Cheng Lee who, along with her "worse half" Toastmaster Michael Wee have been with the club since its inception. She told the members about the journey of Changkat, the various struggles and successes over the years and the constant Never-Say-Die attitude of its members.
The next item, introduced by our master of ceremonies, Toastmaster Joe Wan, was the speech by Club President Gladys Tye. She said a lot of things but sadly none of it consisted of her three month experience in the heaven of Hawaii. Club President Gladys also presented the Most Improved Toastmaster Award to Toastmaster Law Jia Hong.
The next segment was the Hawaiian Hula Girl dance by our beloved and Vice President Membership Toastmaster Zhuo Shuzen. Everyone was so mesmerized by her beauty and her talent that she had to go for an encore performance.
All good things are followed by dinner and free-flow of drinks- or so the members of Tampines Changkat like to believe. A sumptuous dinner segment was followed by four games organized by Vice President Public Relations Toastmaster Arjun Chakrabarti and Club Secretary Toastmaster Vincent Chen. The four games were: Hoop Passing, Hawaiian Whisper, Limbo Rock and Hawaiian Beauty Queen (by far the most interesting one where men dressed as Hawaiian beauties). However, we toastmasters like to keep the English Language limited to our speeches. We shall let the pictures speak for themselves.
As an ending to the post, the author would like to give all credit to Organizing Chair Toastmaster Naveena Methani, Co-organizing Chair Toastmaster Nur Aziza and Toastmaster Murali for fantastic organization of a super party!
Oh did I mention the after party at the house of Toastmasters Arjun Chakrabarti? and Ashish Kundra? Oh well, you cannot know it all. To know more come to our club and to our parties!
