Thank You Mr Yerlan from Kazakhstan

Having lunch with Mr Yerlan from Kazahstan (left of picture). On the right are the speaker and guest from Maybank IB (Investment Bank). Mr Yerlan is in KL to attend the Global Sukuk Conference organised by my firm, GlobalPro Consulting on 25-26 February 2009.

He invited me to speak in Astana Islamic Finance Conference on 10-11 March 209. I have to politely decline the invitation due to my busy schedule (next time insyaAllah). I was told the weather in Astana is minus 30 degree (- 30), just the opposite of the weather in Kuala Lumpur (+30). You have to be mentally and physically prepared to face that kind of cold weather.

Kazakhstan is formerly a part of Russian Federation with some 60% Muslim population. Mr Yerlan also informed me they are descendants of Khublai Khan....the warrior...and often mistaken to be a Chinese or Japanese. A Malaysian politician passing by our table even spoke in Malay to him thinking he is a local Chinese! I can understand why he was so puzzled and asked the politician to speak in English or Russian to him.

Special Thanks to Mr Ahmad Salleh Hariri from Islamic Development Bank (IDB)

Special thanks to Mr Ahmad Salleh Hariri, Islamic Development Bank (IDB)'s Regional Director for giving a special presentation at an Islamic Finance conference organised by my firm, GlobalPro Consulting on 23-24 February 2009 in Kuala Lumpur.

After meeting me, he went for a meeting with my namesake Tan Sri Sanusi Junid, former President of International Islamic University Malaysia and former Chief Minister of Kedah state (also my home state). He is known for introducing many creative ideas....some are too creative and people can't really implement them.

Thanks Brother Ahmad Salleh Hariri for your kind support.

Executive Overview on Islamic Banking and Finance - Kuala Lumpur - Feb '09

I will be the Keynote Speaker in a seminar entitled "The Executive Overview on Islamic Banking and Finance" to be held at Seri Pacific Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 23-24 February 2009.

The respond is very encouraging....the Central Bank of Malaysia (Bank Negara Malaysia) alone is sending 10 delegates to the seminar plus delegates from other financial and non-financial institutions.

For the record, Bank Negara Malaysia (Malaysia's No. 1 financial regulator and world's best central bank) is the strongest supporter to all Islamic finance events organised by my firm, GlobalPro Consulting... that's a big of encouragement for my team. We are doing our small contribution in promoting Islamic finance and also to promote Malaysia as No.1 International Islamic Financial Centre.

Malaysia Boleh! (Malaysia Can Do!).

Masjid Ubudiah in 'The Silver State' of Perak, Malaysia

This is Masjid Ubudiah located in the royal town of Kuala Kangsar in the Malaysian state of Perak (the silver state).

The mosque is certainly ranked as one of most beautiful mosques in the world. Its beauty and tranquility has attracted worshippers and visitors from all over the world.

A mosque is symbol of unity for Muslims regardless race, nationality or political affiliation.

It should be a source of inspiration for people to live in peace and harmony.....that's what Islam stands for literally and spiritually.
