9 AUGUST 2018 LEARNING IS A JOURNEY, HAVE FUN

An insatiable thirst for continuous learning educates the mind, the heart and the soul. If a mind is kept open like a parachute, it has the ability to acquire new knowledge without biasness. Learning is a lifelong journey. Keep it fun and enjoy the ride. Undue stress will shut the joy of learning. Be on a mission of learning at least a new sentence, a new word or a  new skill each day. Learning works both ways. The knowledge acquired , if passed on to the next, the learning circle is compounded. Have fun learning to receive and to give. It enriches, empower and elevate a person's level of learning .

At D'Utama Advanced Toastmasters Club, learning is fun and it is experiential and at your own pace. There are no undue stress, teachers or exams. Please check out facebook for more details.

The meeting was a buzz of high energy which was kick started by the ever enthusiastic ASAA Foong Weng Tuck. This was followed by the dancexercise led by the HAPPY exco to ease the day's tiredness and as an icebreaker. A lighthearted and motivating presidential address by President Sharon Foo tickled the audience on fun learning and thereafter the meeting was hosted by the charming Toastmaster of the Evening Edward Teh.
