$ talk - 1/26/09

Here is something dirty but most of people can't get enough of... MONEY!

Gerhard's Lao trip gives him the first hand experience of having too much money. As of 1/29/09, 1 USD is worth about 8500 Kip! Here is a link to how the Lao currency/ banknote looks like.

Another trivia. What's the least valued currency in the world? Click the link for answer. It takes 40,000,000,000,000 "dollar" to exchange 1 US dollar!

Think on your feet- in COLOR 1/19/09

To spice up our meeting, Juju brought in a projector and a notebook computer for the table topic - colorful. Sure it's a colorful night!

We didn't see the true color from the projection due to connection issue. All pictures look slightly off and a bit dull. Isn't that like communication? What others hear might not be 100% what we intend to express. If we don't "connect" with our audience, we will not communicate effectively.

scarf night - 1/12/09

What can you do with a scarf besides putting on your neck or shoulder? Angelica, the Topic Master of the night, really gets our creative juice flowing. Juju uses it to exercise and dance. Others suggest to frame it as wall decoration, to make it as a baby carrier, or to carry lunch box.

Tim and Vivi are two guests of the night. We are excited to have new blood to join us and grow with us. Since some of our members are travelling for work, or have different obligations conflicting with meeting schedule once a while, we really benefit from new members/guests.
Juju, our VP of Education, also reminds us the LACE training coming up. The best training $12 can buy! See for detail.
