Meyya strike it Well......

It was a battle of 3 immediate past division governors plus another past division governor. Contestants across Peninsular Malaysia were all set for the elusive title.

S.Meyyappa Manickam (Meyya), whom was the flag bearer for Division B evaluation contest, was already have expectations, as Division B has won 2nd place in evaluation contest for the past 3 terms and never in the history a past division governor has won a podium in the district contest.

Just the night before the contest, Meyya got rewarded with his part term hard-work for his President Distinguished Division for term 2012/13. With the spirit and encouragement by Division members and friends from other division geared him for the next day.

Meyya was speech contestant number 2 out of 10 contestant. Being 2nd contestant, he will have 5 minutes for preparation as the same for the rest and additional 3 minutes, where he will be quarantined which can be also used for rehearsal.

As his name was called to present by contest chair, Azizah Hassan, he went up with gusto and cool-down himself with smile. he started with a shock statement of "CRAP", then went on with explanation of the acronym CRAP which was clear purpose, rational organisation, attention grabbing and pause usage.

While he peppered the evaluation with humor, his confidence increased as he got the audiences' support.

He finished strong with a conclusion which relates back to theme of the convention and district, STARS.  As he concluded, it was a arousing applause from the audience.

Now, the results time, as all contestants were eagerly waiting for it. The Chief Judge, Wendy Wong, handed over the results to contest chair. Unfortunately, there were 1 time disqualification.

The 3rd place winner goes to Kyle Tham from KPMG TMC division W whom were contestant number 9.

And the 2nd place goes to S.MEYYAPPA MANICKAM. All the supporters were already greeting and congratulating him, before even he goes to the stage.

The champion was from IEM TMC, Division E, whom were also the contestant number 10.

It's another achievement for Meyya and Division B. Nevertheless, the hunt for 1st District winner from Division B still goes on.

Another Division B representative from Division B, Mirosha Somasundram, got a good exposure by facing seasoned members i.e Loghendran, Swee Keat, Ramakrishnan and Chen Choon.
