My reason.

I have my reason not to blog a often as I did before.

The big reason is that I had joined Toastmaster (TM). TM is a club promoting public speaking.

It all began with the day I get award as the best Table topic presenter. Table topic is the session where participant will be given a title on the spot, and participant have to give a speech on the spot without much time for preparation. I get a ribbon as a reward.

Fyi, I was only a guest, not even a member of TM.

I thought I have a gift in public speaking, and my TM mum succeeded in converting me as TM member.

Now that I had joined TM. Had paid a big sum of money....

My bossy 'TM mum' had ordered me to present my first speech next week...

A proper speech is so different from writing a blog.

You can just type anything comes into your mind for a blog post. However a speech have to have proper structure, content, beginning and ending. So far, my speech draft has beginning and ending, but no content. Some help with mental block, I can't continue with the preparation.

For the sake of RM 250, I have to continue my survival in speeching world.....

Merely alive...

Bossy TM mum, have to stop nagging me about doing my homework....

Hi Naomi, go for it! Wow your audience.
I remember my first time giving a short speech to a few o/seas business people, my knees like John Tralvolta in Saturday night fever.

But after three and four, no problemos, as well I always inject humour inbetween. Two great persons I admire is Bill Clinton and Obama, they can give a talk of the cuff, as well Sarah Palin too.
You have a great time....maybe can join politics too, ha ha. Lee.
