Continental Manila Toastmasters Club 3rd Visit

Continental (or Continental Temic Electronics) Toastmasters Club may be the last club I'll be visiting for the year. Knowing the holiday rush can be terrible at this time of the year, I left home around 9:30 am for the 11 am meeting at Continental. I was still early at 10:35 am.

Attending in today's meeting Continental were: Raul de la Vega, Marivic Turalde, me, Rodelio Tan, Ykhon Yabut, Wenci de Guzman, Aleita Mahinay, Jinnessa Catapia, Karisse Gonzalo and Jeffrey Lim.
