It is already Christmas and I realised I had not updated my blog for almost 2 months! Before I could fill you in on October and November, let’s throw back my September 2015.
I started September 2015 with the Area N1 Humorous Speech and Speech Evaluation Contests. I represented Penang Toastmasters Club in this contest. What was my target? I aimed to get runner-up in this contest. I did not have the courage to put such a high hope. However, luck was on my side. I won the contest along with Nicholas who represented in Humorous Speech Contest. We would be competing in Division N together next!
The second highlight for the month was the surprise I planned with his colleague for his birthday. I went over to the college. I was shocked to see so many students were participating in this surprise. Then he was surprised to see I was there. I believe he will never forget this day – his 31st birthday.
The third highlight for the month was the surprise brought by the boyfriend this time. I went to pay summon that morning when I received a call from my colleague. She sounded anxious and told me that there was a customer looking for me. I thought long and hard that I had attended all the enquiries and was very sure that I did not miss any of it out. I was half worried and half suspicious. I even thought my boyfriend could have put up a show with my colleagues and we were waiting for me to go back to office. When I got back to the office, I was dumbfounded when I saw this huge vase on my table! Both shocked and speechless. The next thing I knew. my tears were streaming down my cheeks. Such a lovely surprise from him. He had planned this out early of the month while I had planned out his birthday end of October. We were both giving each other a surprise in the same month. I am feeling blessed.
Third highlight was the day the boyfriend moved out from his place. He had always wanted to move out to be independent. Finally, he did it! We had a soft house warming with the closer friends. It was a last minute call and we were glad that most of them were able to make it. Now we know who are the true friends.
The last highlight for the month was the dinner that I had planned with sweat and tears. It was the Division H’s Joint Installation Dinner. To be honest, it was not easy to organise such a big event. I had organised the Division H’s contest last year but trust me, this is a different level! I am really glad that I had a great committee who worked alongside with me to make this dinner a success! Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much! I will always remember this phrase.
So you see, September had been great to me. We shall see how October treated me next.
