Talk by Dr Wolff and DRR Visit

4 02 2008

When? 23 February 2008
Where? Pahang Room, Shangri-la hotel, Kuala Lumpur.


Dr Volker Wolff, the director of Goethe Institute Kuala Lumpur dropped by our club meeting recently to enlighten us on German culture, the language and the activities Goethe conducts in Malaysia. A jovial speaker (with a penchant for cracking jokes), Dr Wolff also shared an interesting nugget – university tuition in most states in Germany is free; all you have to do is learn a minimum of 300hours of German beforehand to qualify for entrance. Hmm… guess how many of us are now eyeing Deutschland as a possible stop for our Master’s?

Also joining us on that day was District Rotaract Representative Dinesh Krishnan and IPDRR Chandrasegaran. Both of them were kind enough to share tips and experiences on issues such as membership development. DRR Dinesh also shared with us the criteria that our club would have to meet to achieve the DRR Citation, Presidential Citation and District Awards. The good news is that we’ve almost crossed out most of the criteria on our “to do” list! Yeay!

Since the day was themed as “West meets East”, we adjourned to Sahara Tent in Bukit Bintang for a Mediterranean dinner.
