The gift of gab

5 03 2007

When? 4th March 2007, Where? Holiday Villa Jalan Ampang, What? District 3300 Speakathon… 

Are metrosexuals sexy?
Arranged marriages fashionable?
Egg cartons, LP records, curlers and toilet seats the best inventions in the world?

Sounds like cool questions, but imagine having to talk your way and convince a whole audience of its merits!

For 7 brave representatives from the Rotaract Clubs of Melawati, Damansara, Gombak and Kuala Lumpur (our beloved newbie Anu!) that was the challenge that they took up at the recent District 3300 Speakathon.

And the audience were not spared either as we had to participate in a team game of opposite charade (Ed: the word “fork” will never be the same, just ask Gombak’s Kevit… wink).

In the end, only one could emerge as the champion and it came as no surprise when PP Ravinder from Damansara walked away with the challenge trophy. Not to be left behind were 1st runner up Irwinder of Melawati and 2nd runner up Kevitpal of Gombak.

Altho, we may not have taken home the trophy this time, a big huge pat on the back is due for our talented “drama-queen” Anu, who overcame a sudden bout of stage freeze and came back with a vengeance, making it all the way to the finals. 🙂
