Tonight, @ UEC Toastmasters Club Meeting, I’ll be the Table Topic Master as one of the 3 Projects I need to complete Level 2 of my Path Motivational Strategies under Pathways.

I prepared only 3 since I will be preparing comments for each speaker.

Hoping for a fun session.

It was good enough. A bit commendable effort for a successful session.

The oxymoron worked well.

I realized that only a true moron will have nothing to say or use of an oxymoron – that’s a known secret.

On the other hand…I had a joyfully sad afternoon.

The walk was fine. The picture again is the issue. An extremely stressful point to touch. Discarding the thought is a definite maybe.


August 22 2018

At about a few minutes before 10:00am, I was called to be a Table Topics Evaluator for a Toastmaster Demo Meeting of a BODP Batch.

Present were TMs Keena, Jo, Joseph and Div L Director Zarah.

Multiple roles were filled.

TM of the day and TT Master is TM Keena. Intro and Speech is TM Jo. TM Joseph took all the Technical Evaluation roles, and TM Zarah is the GE and Speech Evaluator. I focused on the Table Topics Evaluation of 3 speakers.

That’s just half of the day.


Takbo.Ph Runfest: 10th Year of Running

I have not joined any race for a very long time. My last is the BDM 102 in 2016!

While I have been running almost daily for the last 8 months, I do not really take time nor bother to join a race.

I saw how the runners of today are. It’s easy to identify a runner who is unprepared.

I have a 10K bib but I ran a 5K. 4 minutes of running with 1 minute walk breaks. Still, able to finish in 0:35:54. A decent time compared to a bunch of walkers and selfie-takers.
