I received this email today and I am blessed..... Hohohahaha.....
Dear Ms Fung,
I must thank you for sharing with me on your Laughter program. Let me share with you my experience on what happened during my “Train The Trainer” Seminar (by Blair Singer) in Singapore.
On our final assignment, we were given half an hour to present our topic. I actually wanted to do the topic on “Caring for the Terminally Ill” but after some thoughts, I realized that it is a very dry subject. So I changed the topic to “How To Be A Rich Clown”.
I touch upon the opportunity to help the uneducated and poor, to earn more money, so that it will elevate their financial condition. As a person does not need a degree or diploma to learn how to clown, this is a niche market to go into for them.
I also need to demonstrate how to do the job! But I have no clowning experience. So the next thing that comes into my mind is laughter.
I shared with them that whenever anyone sees a clown, they will automatically laugh or a smile will be on their face. But my group is still staring at me with a stern learning face. I was a bit worried because the Trainer “Blair Singer” coming in my direction. I need to do something, otherwise I will get a dressing down from him. I have seen him telling the participants off very sternly. Then I ask my group for permission if I could demonstrate to them, and they say YES.
I just burst out laughing from deep inside me for no reason at ALL.
Immediately I could see that they start to smile at first, when I continue my laughing, they joined me laughing even more than me. This disturbs the other 2 groups besides us, because they are laughing too. Then I stop suddenly and ask them “What are you laughing about”. They say they don’t know but just because there is laughing going on and they can’t help but just laugh!. I have proved the point to them that laughter is contagious.
I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I CAN DO THAT!! It was a totally new experience for me as I am venturing on unknown grounds. I did not even attend any laughter classes or practice. All I know is that I have to pull through my presentation.
I got a standing ovation for my presentation. That was GOOD. The feedback from the group motivates me even more.
I would like to share with on what they have written on the feedback forms.

Ms Fung, I must thank you for sharing both the clown workshop and the laughter session with me. Your sharing have made me realized that I am capable of doing things that I have never imagine.
Thank again and God Bless
