Coincidentally, Sam Koh presented CC#1 titled, “Believing in yourself” by describing how from a “slow learner”, starting to talk only at the age of 5 to his position of “Trade Marketing Manager” today, he had subjugated so many struggles, obstacles and adversities to be what he is today.

|Kwa Ngan Eng, DTM|
General Evaluator, Kwa Ngan Eng, DTM, revealed that the strength and stability of our club was due to the strength of President Jeannie ACS, CL who took up most of the club officers roles and responsibilities unflinchingly, which otherwise also proved to be our weakness as there was total reliance on an individual. She hoped that the next term club officers will work as a team and put in their efforts collectively to ensure a continuously strong club. Thank you, Ngan Eng!
In closing, President Jeannie, ACS, CL informed that our Club Officers’ Installation Night will be held on 1st August 2015 at 6.30pm at Bliss 33 Café, No. 31-33, Jalan USJ 2/2C, 47600 Subang Jaya.
