Every month, our club celebrates the birthday of club members of the month with a cake. Happy birthday to the July babies - Jack and John.
Then it was more food - noodles, herbal tea, rambutans and birthday cake at the cafetaria during the break time.
Food for thought and food for the stomach.
Nice photographs taken and compiled by Jessica.
This is a posting of four J's - July, Jack, John, Jessica.

Out of the blue, I decided to pay a visit to Bayan Baru Mandarin Toastmasters Club which meets at PSDC, Penang Island on every 2nd and 4th Thursday 8:30pm. Our Bayan Baru (English) Toastmasters Club member ES Tan recently told me that he had joined the Mandarin Club which was the trigger for this timely visit. It was the first meeting of the Bayan Baru Mandarin Toastmasters Club and it was a Speechcraft meeting with 8 speechcrafters delivering their Project 2 including our dual member ES Tan. It was great to hear enthusiastic speeches in Mandarin and to listen to the many experienced evaluators who offered valuable tidbits. I really enjoyed the meeting and got to brush up a bit on my Mandarin particularly in the listening department.

I visited the Butterworth Toastmasters Club during their first meeting of the new term on Wednesday night 7:30pm at Suntec City next to Bayan Baru Sunshine Square in Penang Island. The Toastmaster of the Meeting was Jayie Tan and the General Evaluator was SK Yao. An election for the 2011-2012 Executive Committee was held after the meeting. Congratulations to the new President Kevin Teh and Vice President Khor Hock Lai and the new club officers who were duly elected.
