Ended My Alpha Leo Journey Last Night!

21st September 2013. The day I became as an IPP for Leo Club of SMJK Nan Hwa.

Speech from me giving last night. I was kinda nervous and speaked quite fast sorry if you can't listen carefully last night.

" Good evening, ladies and gentleman!
   I welcome you all and thank you once again for being here on such a special occasion. What a bizarre feeling today, to stand here before you as the president of the Leo Club of SMJK Nan Hwa for the last time. I find it hard to believe how far this year has gone.
   At this time last year, I was standing before you making my acceptance speech, feeling scared and nervous, being uncertain if I would make a good President. I am sure many of you were probably feeling the same way. But as the time progressed, I become more comfortable in the role and receive tremendous support from Lions, teacher advisors, my board of directors and from you, the members. Together we have made it a memorable one.
   Our club has come a very long way since then. We have not only increased in membership but our projects have become bigger and better. We have not only increased in strength but at the very same time achieved our goals that we set forth during the beginning of my term. As a president I have learnt a lot of things like leadership, responsibility and confidence. But most importantly, I have learnt to give each and everyone an equal chance to come forward, take up projects and handle it thus brings out the leader in everyone. Now I can proudly say that our club though may have one president but I see successful leaders in each and every member.
   I am quite happy and content with all that we have achieved.
   These past months, the Leo club of SMJK Nan Hwa shared our time, our talents, be our resources - we shared our kindness and our love. Sharing means giving frequently for the good of others.
   I understand that the committee and members have been through a lot sweat and tears in order to secure our benefit and interests. I must admit that all of you have exhibited great loyalty and diligence toward your respective obligation. Truly Leo Club of SMJK Nan Hwa is proud to have such proactive members. And thus, I would like to take this opportunity to say that I am grateful to each and every single effort and sacrifices made with all my heart.
   As the outgoing president for this auspicious annual event, I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for allowing me to serve as your President from 2012 until 2013. I have enjoyed every single minute of it. I hope you have too! 
  Thank you very much. "

After I giving the speech out, the applause from all the Leo members of SMJK Nan Hwa make me superb touched!

My Last Alpha Leo Journey

Before going to the 40th Multiple District 308 Leo Forum at Port Dickson. 4 other boys and me spent one day in Ipoh first. We shopped from Ipoh parade to Station 18! We enjoyed the 50% discount from Starbuck and even bought the same long sleeve shirt at Padini since it's having 50% discount too! Hahaa.. After that, we had dinner together at Sakae Sushi!
Photo as proof!
Then, we stayed at Nelson Chen's house, secretary of Leo Club of Sam Tet. He treated us so nice! Nelson and I even chatted at the dining room and I had my favourite Milo drinks before going to sleep. Jon, Nelson and I slept in one room. While Mac, Choo Hong and Vishveen slept in another room. Jon and I argue for don't want to sleep on the bed for almost half hour! LOL. Because that there's only two beds in Nelson's room. Eventually, I lost. I get to sleep on the bed and Jon slept on the floor. Thank you, Jon for your kindness! Hahahaa!

First day of 40th MD 308 Leo Forum.
It was around 5.00a.m in the morning, we prepared everything. Nelson's dad and Wan Xin's (President of Leo Club of SMJK Poi Lam) dad fetch us to go to Syuen Hotel, Ipoh. Every Ipoh Leos are arrived after marked our attendance we we separated into three buses depart to Port Dickson. Had a great "fight" with Choo Hong because he did not want to let me know his phone password! LOL. A 5hours road journey, finally we make it to Port Dickson unconsciously. We saw the Leo forum banner outside the resort.

Wow! There are so many Leos from whole Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia! Imagine all us going to the restroom to change our formal wear. Yea.. You can't imagine how packed was it. Then we all went to have our lunch after that we are going to have the opening ceremony at the hall. The banner parade. Every club president must to take their banner and walk around the hall as the opening ceremony. Know where am I? Below is the whole Leo Presidents from each club colleged into one photo. How cool is it!

Walking together with Leo Club of SMK La Salleh President, Bjorn Liow.
Then, we got to take our room key and got to know who is my roomates since I'm the only girl from my club so there is no chance for me to sleep with the Leos I know. Luckily, when I get into the room, I got a warm welcoming from the President of Taman Petaling, Katrina and of course Farisha, Maesha and Akhila! We even took photo together before going out to have our fellowship night!
We had the fellowship night which themed "Circus". My club Leos all dressed so cool! We had fun so much in the night!

Second day of Leo Forum.
Ahh.. Kinda disappointed of the awards that Leo Club of SMJK Nan Hwa got it this year.
- 100% Administrative Award
- Outstanding Leo Club
- Outstanding School Services
- Outstanding Membership Growth
- 4 Merit Directors
- 2 Outstanding Members
- Outstanding Vice President
- Outstanding Treasurer
- Outstanding Secretary
- Outstanding President
Uhhh.. My club suppose to get the Spotlight on Children award, Environmental award and Top Joint Leo Camp award! But I've no idea what's wrong is it! Every clubs which did the same projects with our clubs also got it! But why not my club?! I've asked District President and he said that it's District Chairman's last decision already. Okay. Fine.

At night, we had to queue up to take the food. The queue is suuuuuupeeeer loooong! Who would ever know that the Leo who is in front of me come to introduce himself to me. After knowing him, his parents' hometown are at Sitiawan where I'm living right now! This is such a fate! Thanks to long queue that make me know a new friend from KL! LOL. Lion Marcus who knows I'm not really happy about the award purposely having his dinner same table and my club. Thank you so much!

Selca with Lion Marcus!
