Picture taken from Google Image



Our theme for meeting #804 is Love Never Fails. Since Valentine's day is just around the corner, share with us your 1st love, puppy love, unrequited love, the one who got away, the one who was just not meant to be, the love of your life, or any type of love that shook the earth. 

Do you know in ancient Greece, love had been categorized into Eros, Philia, Ludus, Pragma, Agape, Philautia and Storge? See you later.

Meeting #802. You can't say you can't

New year, new resolution, new goals or just old wine in a new bottle? 

Whatever you reasons for coming to TMIKL's meeting, if you set out to do something, you are not alone, we will help you to get there!


Just like you can't say you can't achieve anything by joining Toastmasters, we at TMIKL can't say we can't help you to be a champion speaker, because we want to, we are there for the long haul and we can help you become who you want to be!

Don't say you can't make it to the meeting tonight, because you can, you want to and you know we can help you if you let us. See you tonight!

Goodbye 2016

Rain, however heavy, will have to stop, grieve how ever painful, will have to heal, happiness how ever euphoric, will have to pass and year 2016, however reluctant we are, will be gone soon.

Come join us on 27th December 2016 for the last meeting of the year at TMIKL, Jalan Imbi, Bankers Club.

This year, we celebrated the achievements of our members and also bade some sterling members goodbye.

Everyone has their own reasons to stay or to go, we at TMIKL wish you all the best and we sincerely hope that you left as an improved speaker and also brought along some pleasant memories of your toastmasters journey with you.  

2016 for the better or worse, you will be missed.

Meeting # 800 in the park

The choice to choose between waking up early on a rainy Saturday morning to attend a toastmasters meeting or to sleep in was an easy decision to make.



Despite the heavy rain, the risk of being struck by a lightning bolt or drowning in a flood, it was a spirited turn out. At TMIKL, whether it is rain or shine, the show must go on. 




We even had a guest Kazuhisa Hirano, all the way from Japan, who found out about our meeting via http://easy-speak.org. This is a testament that besides making you a better leader and communicator, Toastmasters International also helps you to connect people from around the world.



Thank you friends of TMIKL, Gabriel Chong, Justin Jesunathan, & Intan Nurshiela & Ikram for gracing the meeting. All of you gave up your Saturday morning to be with us, we couldn't be more thankful because you guys are definitely our sunshine after the rain!

The best thing about the rain is the rainbow that appears afterwards, the best thing about a toastmasters meeting is the extra motivation to be a better speaker.

Hopefully we can have more meetings like this in the future, minus the chaos. A big thank you to all who attended meeting #800, because you made it happen!

The fearless Jony Lim

Jony Lim
Once in a while we get members who defy all odds, breaking speed record en-route to attaining the Competent Communicator goal. Some people are just born sprinters, Jony did it in less than one year! Which makes him the second fastest, just behind Ceyvian Chan in getting Competent Communicator title in TMIKL.

Jony came into TMIKL as a rough diamond, but underneath the rough edges, the dazzling bright glitters are just waiting for time to sparkle. He wowed us with his ice breaker speech on 28th July 2015 in high spirit, high volume, and highly charged body language. I must say this is the power of youth.

Over time, senior members at TMIKL helped Jony to become a more technical speakers, sticking to the objectives of the CC manual to bring out the best in how he crafted his speech, how to amplify his stage presence through vocal variety, body language, different approaches to engage the audience.

In his speech #10 on 28th June 2016,  Nelson Mandela was his reference for inspirations.

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."

Those words quoted from Nelson Mandela is the reflection of our fearless Jony Lim! Our best wishes to you, good luck in your studies, all the best over there in US of A!
