Today I delivered a lecture on Syariah-based investment (Islamic unit trusts etc) in the historical town of Muar, located in the southern state of Johor. I was invited to speak on the topic by the country's top fund management company.
I noticed that about 50% of the crowd are non-Muslims. Some of the partipants drove from Kuala Lumpur (some 200 km away) to listen to my talk.
At the end of the talk, I got an invitation to speak at a university in Johor.
Today I delivered a lecture entitled "Developing Excellent Talent for Islamic Finance Industry" at a Seminar organised by Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) in Shah Alam. I addressed the issue of lack of talent pool for Islamic finance industry and the steps to overcome this problem. What are competencies required to be an excellent Islamic banker etc.

Seen in the picture above is Johor-Singapore Causeway. The Johor-Singapore Causeway was completed in 1923 after four years of construction. The Johor-Singapore Causeway is the first land link between Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore. The second, called the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link, was completed in 1998.
Someone told me that Singaporean authority is searching for Mas Selamat, the escaped detainee all over Johor Bahru because they notice billboards everywhere with the words "Selamat Datang"....actually Selamat Datang means welcome in Malay and nothing to do with welcoming Mas Selamat.
