At the invitation of the Division N Governor Koay Kah Hin, this Wednesday night, I attended for the first time the Sungai Bakap Toastmasters Club in mainland Penang. We literally went overseas as we crossed the Penang Sea Channel using the 13.5km Penang Bridge and had a pre meeting seafood dinner at restaurant along the river at Bukit Tambun.
When we reached the venue at Simpang Ampat on time at 8pm, Murphy's Law came into effect. The electrical supply of the venue had been cut by LLN. Fortunately Club President Ang Eng Chai and the members of Sungai Bakap Toastmasters acted fast and found a last minute alternate venue. It was the meeting room at a political party center in Sungai Bakap. So there was a vehichle convoy as we drove and reconvened at the new meeting room of Sungai Bakap Toastmasters.
It was a great meeting with guests and visiting Toastmasters participating in Table Topics session. There were two guest speakers including myself and an advanced project by a visiting Toastmaster. So the guests got a good taste of Toastmasters. All the best to the Sungai Bakap Toastmasters Club. For information on next meeting, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
