December is the most wonderful time of the year. It is a month of celebration and also for reflecting the past 11 months of hard work. At D Utama Advanced Toastmasters Club, our super senior members , the Distinguished Toastmasters come together and make the December meeting meaningful by filling up the speech roles, evaluations and toastmaster of the evening. We thank you for inspiring and for leading the way with embarking on the new Pathways.

The arrival of guests and fellow members in their christmas best added more festive cheer to the Meeting. With a knock of the gavel, the Sergeant at Arms Alphons Gomez  started the meeting. This was followed by Madam President Cindy Chan CC opening speech and the Meeting was comducted by the energetic Toastmaster of The Evening Sheila Wong, DTM . Table Topics Master Stuart Tang CC CL took over the much awaited session and every speaker gets to take home a piece of Godiva chocolate as a token of appreciation. The brave table topics speakers were Paul Tan, Sue Ding, G Subra, Joshua Chan and Jennifer Pan.

A tea break of 10 minutes gave everyone a chance to catch up with each other and a wonderful birthday cake for the December birthday stars. The Meeting resumed with the second session of prepared speeches . Four Distinguished Toastmasters led the way by delivering Pathways Icebreaker Speeches which gave us invaluable insights of knowing them better. They were Lim Lay Kun DTM, Peter Siew DTM,  Low Yat Seow DTM, and Joseph Gomez DTM

The third session was the evaluation session and this was led by the General Evaluator Bernard Louis DTM. The table topics evaluator was Josh O Neil and the speech evaluators were Elysia Teh CC, Yip Wah Pung DTM, Serena Pang ACG ALS and G Subra DTM
