“Hey! Ho! Hey! Ho! Hey! Ho!”
Just one day after the extreme rainstorm, our fellow members and friends from the three biggest Toastmasters clubs in Hong Kong – Achievers, Centraler, and Hong Kong Toastmasters Club – miraculously sang and danced along as we partied on an incredibly fun day out at sea.
On Sept 9th, Saturday morning our boat anchored near Lamma Island, filled with waves of laughter, wines, blasts of live karaoke and faces of joviality. From know-your-name icebreakers to know-your-club trivia questions, Team Morning Glory and Team Sunshine competed with sportsmanship, playfulness and good humor. Putting their muscles to use, members challenged themselves at a laughter-driving sit-and-rise exercise and learned dance moves exclusively choreographed for the boat trip. Exhibiting their stand-up ability, four comedians also shared funny stories at The Joke-telling Competition.
Despite the extreme weather on the day prior, nothing stopped the crowd from enjoying themselves. On board, our time was filled with mind-boggling card games, traditional mahjong and delicious Thai lunch buffet. Circulating around the junk boat on the floating mattress and water trampoline, the chitter-chatter and mingling lasted the entire afternoon with champagnes, drizzles and glimpses of the sun.
The day wouldn’t have been a success without the hard work and support of the organizers from all three clubs. Look forward to hosting another memorable event. See you all next year!
