THE NEW NORM OF CELEBRATING FESTIVALS
Malaysians and festivals share a never-ending relationship.
However, are festivals part of the new norm of Malaysia? Well, honestly, that is kind of an awkward question.
With the restrictions on shaking hands and the 1- meter social distancing among individuals, festivals are not going to be the same as before.
But here in Toastmasters, we go beyond that.
Unable to celebrate a birthday? We make a birthday video instead!
Missing the vibes of wearing the same colored outfit at a festival? We all wear RED at our regular meetings!
Did Independence Day not feel independent enough as we had to stay at home? Free yourself by attending Toastmasters meetings held throughout Malaysia, and also internationally!
You know right, the trending catchphrase is: it’s just a Zoom away!
