Fun in the Sun!

20 May 2012 - A Weekend Experience of Sun, Surf and Food!

There are several things you should know about Mid Valley Toastmasters Club - We give our all. Whether it is presenting our speeches, playing the multitude of roles during our bi-weekly meetings, or evaluating others who are on the same path - we put that extra effort in.

But here's the thing: We like to play hard as well.

And we love our R & R times as well - and what better way to get some much needed rest and relaxation than a weekend experience, right here in KL, with the people that you meet every two weeks at Mid Valley Cititel Level 5? Not only do you get to do all the fun and frolic stuff that is the hallmark of any great weekend sensation, but you get to share great food with great friends. Camaraderie is where it's at!

Organized by the bubbly Sheryl Chieng and the elegant Penny Choo, Mid Valley Toastmasters Club organized "Fun in the Sun", one of the club's special social events that starts with a fun-filled extravaganza of a morning in Sunway Lagoon and ends on a high note, with plenty of satisfied tummies at an all-you-can-eat steamboat buffet.

If you missed out on this weekend outing - you HAVE to join the next one.

And of course, what is a blog post without tantalizing evidence of what took place on that fateful day (Photos courtesy of Moses Wong, CC):

Everyone gathered at Zhia's Kitchen at 11.00 am, SHARP! Here we see co-organizer Penny Choo giving us a little bit of an Ice-Breaker - which is really appropriate for such a hot, blazing day!

Now after that, we all headed to the thrilling enjoyment that is Sunway Lagoon. Everyone was raring to go - they were bursting with barely-contained excitement and you could see the joy in their eyes as they made their way to the rides, their adrenaline pumping!

Okay. I'm sure the adrenaline was building...slowly. Maybe it was because of the heavy breakfast. But that was just the beginning.

Alright! Now we're talking!

Group Shot! Pose with the "O" (Bunny?) Sign!

Attack of the Cockatoos!

The Zombie Apocalypse has invaded Sunway Lagoon!

Even our own Mid Valley Toastmasters' Dark Angel heart-throb has to take a break - but why the mischievous grin?


After a long-hard day of wet and wild excitement, tummies were beginning to moan and groan in hunger. And that's when Part 2 of the Weekend Sensation took place. Everyone dried up and headed for...

Was it good? Judging by this cinematic photo after our serious Chow-Time session, we think so!
